All of our stainless is made in the USA. We have regular certifications that indicate the purity and the fact it is domestic. That is not likely the case with most other stainless sinks!
This is the typical stainless finish you see on many sinks and most stainless appliances. Easy to scratch, difficult to repair scratches. For that reason, this is the most labor intensive stainless for us to work with - hence a higher premium.
After a while, scratches blend and form a nice uniform patina. This type of stainless can be hammered if you like. I think that option looks terrific.
Benefits: Does a great job at hiding scratches and water spots. Easiest to care for. Millennia is a textured stainless steel that has been quite popular. FYI, this material is much more expensive than copper. It's worth it though! I have one in my home that is 16 years old and it looks new! If you have a contemporary or eclectic look in your home. this will be a gorgeous addition.
(New for 2012. I came up with this idea a while ago.) Nothing is worse than getting a scratch on the front of a brushed stainless farmhouse sink. There is no easy fix. In fact, if you try, you will likely make matters worse. The same goes for the inside of a brushed stainless sink. I came up with this finish to solve those issues. When you scratch this stainless finish, it is simple to remove the scratch at home and blend in the finish to look much like the original finish. In fact, the process is very fast if you order a hammered Rustic Matte sink. The end result looks much like Zinc - without the pitfalls of using Zinc for a sink or counter top. I am sure you are aware zinc is very soft and will dent easily and can warp out of shape easily.
