The Evolution sink is for those who must have the best of the best! I have put my 36 years of design experience into the formulation of what I believe to be the most useful kitchen sink design ever developed. I considered ergonomics, food preparation, clean up, serving and aesthetics. I truly believe this is the consummate kitchen sink. The architecture of the sink, is clearly perfection in design utility. The Evolution Sink - a sink for all occasions Food prep, clean up, serving, and additional counter space. Today, the kitchen sink has finally evolved to attend to our current lifestyles. Our fast paced lifestyle deserves a kitchen sink that can do it all, quickly and efficiently. Do you have a small kitchen and think this sink is too large? Think again... This sink adds valuable counter height work space in your kitchen. There is no loss of space. You actually gain usable work space! Evolution can be the crown jewel in your home.
Three patents have been granted and there are more pending. The Rachiele "Evolution Sink" is now available on a limited basis. If you love to cook (like I do) you will love this sink!
Don't be fooled by other sinks offering similar designs. Ours is the only sink on the market with two interior ledges and a front to back dimension that allows you to put a faucet behind the sink in a standard countertop. There really is no comparison with the Galley and my Evolution sink. The Galley sink is virtually the same design as my single tiered Signature Sink with a wider flange used as the top tier. I have never offered that option because there is no way to keep water from sitting on that ledge unless you wipe the ledges down after every use. The interface between the sink and the countertop must be sealed. The sealant may discolor or mildew over time and it may leak without giving much notice to the user. In my opinion, it is a poor design.
I just looked at the Galley Sink website for the first time in quite some time. I noticed their patent pending notice is gone. Their patent was denied because it was virtually the same as my Signature Series sink. I have three granted patents on my Evolution sink. Their current specifications are almost identical to my early style Signature Series when I had larger (3/4”) ledges. I also noticed they decreased the front to back dimensions on their sinks so they would fit in a standard countertop depth. That was a nice improvement. That being said, my two internal tier sink is the exact same front to back dimension as theirs (overall) and even with two internal tiers, my bottom front to back dimension is also the same as theirs. That is partly due to their large 3/4" internal ledge.
Soon after I designed the the original Signature Series sink I found the 3/4" ledge bulky and wasted a great deal of interior bowl space. I had some very expensive precision tooling manufactured for me that allows me to manufacture 1/2" ledges to replace the earlier design. That tooling allows me to be able to place one of my Evolution sinks (with two interior ledges) in a standard size countertop (front to back) without any issue with faucet placement.
Since the top flange is where the main accessories sit on the Galley Sink, the thickness of the countertop impacts how close the accessories are to the top of the countertop. In order to not have their accessories rise above the countertop, they have to make them very thin and frankly, not very substantial. Their poly accessories are only 7/16” thick. Mine are about 40% thicker at 5/8” thick and are made in the USA. My poly board sits 7/8” below the top of the bowl. No worrying about running water over the cutting board when it is in place.
My Evolution sink has two interior tiers.
Thoughtful design is key. (This is where my background as a kitchen designer paid off) All of the accessories for my sink are universal, meaning, you can turn them 90 degrees to fit the lower tier or the top tier. This cuts down the amount of accessories in half. The grid is designed, and included, as a universal accessory. The poly accessories with holes for colander or bowl, and the polycarbonate dish trays are also universally designed. You may also want an optional 12" wide (not universal) poly cutting board so you can easily place it in the dishwasher for sanitizing.
Two patents, D700,300 and D700.301 issued on February 25th 2014 with several more awarded and pending.
These sinks take considerably longer to hand craft than our other sinks. For that reason, I am limiting production of these sinks due to the complexity of manufacturing such a precise instrument. These sinks are individually handcrafted using precision tools. The non drain side is slightly shallower than the drain side; plus all portions of the sink are sloped to the drain. This assures proper evacuation of water. Each sink is signed and numbered. If you are interested, please call. We can put your name on a waiting list and give a fairly accurate time frame for delivery. See pricing. Each sink includes: Walnut cutting board, Poly Cutting Board, Poly platform for serving trays, 6 serving trays with lids, Poly platform for colander and mixing bowl, Stainless mixing bowl, Stainless Colander, and a copper or stainless perforated grid. Each piece will fit the top or lower tier by turning it 90 degrees. We can build the Evolution sink in any of the stainless steel materials as well.
This is a top mount Evolution sink. The sink is 54" long. In my opinion, this is the smallest ideal size for this type of sink.
This is what a copper sink looks like prior to our artist applying a natural patina. The shading differences in the below photos has to do with photography.
All of our optional accessories fit on the top and the bottom tier or terrace simply by rotating them 90 degrees. The pans in this sink will are crystal clear polycarbonate pans with matching lids. Keep things fresh in the refrigerator! Copper grid is on the bottom tier in this photo.
Stainless mixing bowl fits either tier as well. Cut your veggies on a cutting board and scoop into the bowl below.
How about a colander? This is just getting to be too much fun! I have been dreaming of this sink for months. Now... perfection!
