Hello, this is Dino Rachiele, owner of Rachiele™ Custom Sinks. Every aspect of my custom fitted sink designs is based on my previous 22 year career (1977-1998) as a professional kitchen designer (specializing in ergonomics) - designing thousands of custom kitchen projects, as well as installing a few myself. The rest of the sink industry knows how to build a sink well. They just don't have the unique background to know why to build one that is efficient, ergonomically correct, etc. I am a custom sink designer. Designing a sink is like designing custom clothing. You have the choice of buying off the rack or having one fitted. Obviously, the fitted clothing fits better and is more comfortable. The same is true with the most used appliance in the kitchen - the sink! "One sink design does not fit all". Sinks should be fitted based on the user(s) height, handedness and many other factors. A properly fitted sink will be much more comfortable and much more efficient to use than a generic sink. I have received thousands of emails expressing that fact from past clients.
Designing custom sinks is my passion for being in business. I love what I do and take a great deal of enjoyment knowing that I have significantly and positively impacted the daily lives of thousands of families. In order for me to design your sink, I must get to know you a bit and I ask many questions that impact location of drain, depth of bowl, height of ledge system and more. My goal is to save my clients hundreds of hours a year and make kitchen tasks not only easy, comfortable and efficient, but enjoyable. Based on almost daily positive email feedback from past clients, I believe that I have been successful in this endeavor. This joy is what makes it easy to come in the office 6-7 days a week for 8-14 hour days.
Please don't compare our custom sinks with other sinks on the market. Our custom sinks are in a totally different league. Comparing a Rachiele™ sink to other brands is like comparing a Bentley to a Chevy - both are cars, but that is about where the similarity ends. 99% of our sinks are custom made, not mass produced or on a shelf waiting to be shipped. They are made to fit you, not the masses. So why would you need a custom sink? Comfort and Efficiency! Not everyone is 5'6" tall. Not everyone is right handed. Not everyone prepares meals the same. I will work with you to help determine the most efficient and comfortable sink possible.
My philosophy as taught by my father: "Do it right the first time, do it with the best materials and labor force and offer unparalleled customer service at a fair price. Those ideals will build an enviable reputation." He tells me: "Those who sell similar products for less, are offering less. Don't worry about them. Their reputation will eventually expose the reason for the lower prices." "Pay and compliment your employees well, so they feel valued and they will do their best work." "Do your best to educate your customer so they are well informed and they will make a good decision and if the solution is not your product, assist them in finding the best alternative option." I am grateful to the wisdom of my, now 97 year old, father. For these reasons and many more, we were able to virtually stop advertising 12 years ago (significantly cutting overhead). We rely on referrals and repeat business for 80% of our new sales and we are always extremely busy. My father was right. We are in an enviable position. There are few, if any, national successful companies with an advertising budget of less than $50 a month. These savings are passed directly on to you. This is why my sinks are less expensive than they were years ago!
Would you go out and buy a first generation cell phone today? Why consider a sink designed for the 20th century when you can invest in a sink designed for the future? I design sinks that make sense! Designing the most efficient sink possible has been my passion for decades. After over 20 years of research, prototypes, great designs and 10 patents, the culmination of my research is what I believe to be
the Ultimate Sink:
We build in Type 316 Marine/Medical Grade Stainless - nothing but the best!
Your Stainless Steel Sink will be second to none. Read about the 316 Marine Grade Stainless benefits. Your stainless brass or copper sinks are custom made. If buying American is important to you, do this! When a company makes a claim that they use domestic copper or stainless, ask to see current certification paper on the material. All domestic copper is shipped with certifications indicating where the copper is mined, manufactured and the purity of the copper. Stainless certifications show the mix of metals and where it is manufactured. I can always email mine to you. Just ask. Read about our Stainless Steel Sinks>>> NEW FOR MAY 2019. All Stainless sinks will have 1/8" radius inside corners for ease of cleaning.
It is a sad testimonial that the copper sink business is reminiscent of the 1960's used car business. There is so much false or intentionally omitted information out there that it makes my head spin. Many copper sink companies intentionally do not tell you where their copper sinks are made and do everything possible to give the "illusion" their sinks are made in the USA. The first thing you should do is call and make sure the sink is really made in the USA. Also, ask where the copper comes from. One such company claims their copper sinks are made of 14 gauge cold rolled copper. Our customer was given the impression their sinks were made in the USA. It turns out all of their sinks are made in China! Another company claims to be made in the USA but after some investigating you will find their copper is imported. Trust your instincts. As they say... Trust, then Verify. Make sure the information is in writing either on the website - next to the sink you select or indicated on every page of the site. Another USA manufacturer mixes locally made and imported sinks on their website - very confusing. Yet another site has such microscopically small photos that you cannot see the defects in the construction. My contention is this: If you are not proud of what you sell, why the heck do you sell it? This is the ultimate misdirection found on a website: "All of our copper is domestic grade, meaning it comes directly from a supplier here in the United States of America." I am willing to bet that the copper comes from outside the US. If you see that comment, ask where the copper is actually made. Get written proof. If the copper sink retailers are proud of what they sell, proudly say the sink is made in Mexico, China, India, Turkey or wherever! Most importantly, ask for references that have had their copper sinks installed for over a year. Talk to them on the phone!
This is another way to see how long a company has been around and whether or not they hide their registration information. Type their domain name (www.rachiele.com) at www.whois.com. If you insert our domain, you will see we have been Online since 10-25-1998, I believe we were the first copper and stainless sink company Online - by several years. You may see coppersinks.com as registered on 11-20-1999. I purchased that domain on that date. I sold it to the current owner on 5-4-2012 for quite a high dollar.
This is my site wide statement. Every copper and stainless sink we offer on our site is made in Apopka, FL using domestic virgin domestic copper and domestic stainless steel.
I can guarantee this... If you have heard that copper sinks are a pain in the neck to care for, they were not talking about mine! Your copper sink will require little or no maintenance, no drying after each use (like the imports require) no waxing and no worries about acidic foods, abrasives or denting. Your copper sink is designed to be heavily used. In contrast, listen to the quality disclaimer of virtually all imported copper sinks. When you order an import, your sink could vary significantly from the size you order! "They" tell you the reason is because they are hand made. (This is metal not bread) Really? Since when does hand made mean poor quality? My copper sinks sinks are hand made; and when you order a 36" sink it measures 36", not 35 1/2" or 36 1/2". We are not baking bread folks, this is metal and it doesn't rise or shrink.
When you invest in a Rachiele™ sink, you are investing in a worry free sink made in the USA. Use your copper sink like a sink! You don't have to wax it like a car. Read why
Imagine life before the smart phone. Imagine life before the television. If you are considering a double bowl sink, you are going back in time! The double bowl sink and sinks with center or rear center drains were designed generations ago and they never evolved. If your cookie sheets, pots, pans and platters do not fit completely in your kitchen sink... your kitchen sink is obsolete! If you are preparing your vegetables, meats and poultry on a cutting board adjacent to your kitchen sink, your kitchen sink is obsolete.
A simple drain location change, (rear corner) combined with a single bow sink design, fixes the issue with large pots, pans, platters and trays and allows you to use my kitchen sink like a double bowl kitchen sink. Wash on the right, set off on the left. My kitchen sink design has a generous slope to the drain. A Rachiele™ single bowl kitchen sink with a rear corner drain allows you to place large items (cookie sheets, platters, refrigerator shelves and more) flat down in the sink for washing and rinsing without covering the drain. None of those items will fit in a double bowl sink! Also, there is no logical reason to have a drain in the center or rear center of a kitchen sink - yet 95% of all kitchen sink manufacturers still cling to that obsolete kitchen sink design.
Our Signature Series and NexGen Workstation Kitchen Sinks are the "Smart Sinks" of the 21st Century. Small interior steps or ledges allow for a metal multi purpose grid to sit below the top of the sink adjacent to a cutting board. All food preparation is now done on top of the kitchen sink. Place items on the grid to rinse, move one at a time to the cutting board to prepare, then sweep into a bowl waiting in the sink. Imagine this... no more wiping down counter tops! All of your food preparation is done on the sink. Food preparation becomes something to look forward to. With my kitchen sink design, food prep activity has evolved from a chore to a pleasure. Clean up is just as amazing. Wash on the right, set off on the grid (the multi purpose grid also fits on the bottom) to dry. "Your life is about to get a little bit easier"
