The first step in choosing the best stainless steel basins is deciding what the intended purpose of the unit will be.
Stainless steel basins are commonly used in professional kitchens and other businesses that serve or prepare food, and in many cases, the type of stainless steel basin will be dictated by local laws or regulations. Be sure to research any local laws or regulations that pertain to the purchase and use of basins in your kitchen if you intend to run food preparation business.
Once you have determined the intended purpose, you will need to think about the size and function of the stainless steel basins.
It is a good idea to measure the space in which the basin will be installed first so you have general idea of what types of stainless steel basins unit will fit in the kitchen or area. Next, you will need to think about how the sink will be used: many large kitchens require three-section basin that allows for washing, rinsing, and bleaching flatware and cookware. This type of basin will be quite large, and it will often feature legs for stability and stainless steel backsplash for sanitation.
If you will be using the stainless steel basins at home and not professionally, you will probably avoid not have to look into regulations and laws. Decide if you want a drop-in basin or an under mount basin; this will affect the aesthetic of the sink area, as well as the difficulty of the installation process. As with professional sinks, you will need to measure carefully to determine what size basin you need, and you will need to decide if you want a single or double basin for added convenience.
