Rachiele® Copper Sinks Imports

Ever changing beauty inside the bowl. Interior will always return to the color of an old penny. Bottom of sink will change to a different color than the rest of the sink.
Hot items, no matter how hot, will not damage our copper sink interior Hot items may damage the finish of an imported sink
Our copper sinks hold their value. We have sold our used copper sinks for 70% of their original value. Imported copper sinks are nothing special, hence they do not hold value when used.
Our copper sinks do well with hard water and well water. Hard water may damage the finish of an imported sink.
Precision built Can be as much as 1/2" off - per "their" disclaimers. I guess it depends on how much yeast is in the mix:)
Use the sink like a sink Use their sink like a car - wash, dry, wax. All imports require drying after every use.
Rear corner drains allow full use of the sink Center drains - invented 200 years ago
