Cheap Chinese Sinks

Do we offer them? No.
Will we? No.
We've had every sink salesweasel in the Midwest in here trying to get us to carry their sub-standard products. We're not going to do it.

Here is a little test you can do. Get one of those rubber refrigerator magnets and place it on the sink in several places. If it is true stainless steel, it won't stick. Here's a hint, if it is a cheap Chinese sink, it's going to stick. What does that mean? It means it is going to rust.

Here's the analogy that comes to mind. Go down to the Maserati dealership, buy the most expensive performance car they have, then head to K-Mart for the cheapest 2 ply tires they have.

To actually make the sink stainless is the most expensive process in the making of the sinks. This is the step the Chinese and others omit.

So, when your bargain sinks rusts and you try to replace it with a REAL sink, is it going to fit?
Probably not. A classic example of 'You get what you paid for'.
