SELECTING YOUR SINK CENTRE

The perfect kitchen sink has many criteria to meet: it must be easy to clean and maintain, beautiful – naturally – as well as durable, practical and ready for anything. When choosing a sink, you will be confronted with a multitude of different materials. Should you opt for a stainless steel sink, a ceramic sink or perhaps a granite composite sink?

GRANITE SINKS MADE FROM CRISTADUR® OR CRISTALITE®

As the inventors of this type of kitchen sink, we are of course a little bit biased when it comes to choosing the right sink finish. We recommend CRISTADUR® and CRISTALITE® – and we’ll explain the difference between them briefly here.

IN SHORT: THE DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES BETWEEN OUR SINK FINISHES

The two SCHOCK sink finishes, CRISTADUR® and CRISTALITE®, not only look different, they feel different too. While our granite sinks in CRISTALITE® feel slightly rough, CRISTADUR® sinks are finished with a patented, extremely fine texture.

Handmade in Germany
Feine Oberflächenstruktur

At SCHOCK, we use both materials to manufacture sinks that are handmade in Germany and are food safe, odour free, impact resistant, stain resistant, heat proof and quite simply of exceptional quality.
