Hygienic, easy to clean and long-lasting. It’s the go-to material for professional chefs.
It's no accident that 70% of sinks around the world are made of stainless steel. It looks good in almost any kitchen. What’s more, it’s corrosion-resistant, has an absolutely pore-free surface for easy cleaning and is extremely hygienic. Stainless steel also bonds with oxygen to form a passive protective layer that continuously renews itself. It can withstand extreme temperatures and, last but not least, it is rust-resistant.
There’s stainless steel and then, there’s stainless steel. Franke stainless steel has a particularly high nickel and chromium content which makes it equally resistant to heat as well as cold.
Franke stainless steel consists of 70% recycled material and is up to 100% recyclable. For your sink, nothing but the best will do. So we source our high-quality stainless steel globally.
Working with the finest stainless steel lets us create larger sinks out of a single sheet of metal with minimal processing marks. This makes your sink more pleasing to the eye.
While many other manufacturers use ready-polished stainless steel sheets, we polish our sinks only after they have been made. This way, your sink retains its attractive shine for longer and develops a wonderfully attractive patina over time.
This chart has been developed by Franke to assist in grading the various materials in terms of their performance characteristics for each category.
It is intended to act as a guide for different requirements: 10 points - the best material tested in this performance category. For example, in our tests Stainless Steel conducts heat better than any other material listed.
