Elkay sinks offer a tremendous range of choices, particularly when it comes to the kitchen. Elkay stainless steel sinks are known for their breadth of style options.
If you like the modern commercially inspired look, there's the Elkay Avado line with tight corners and square lines. Elkay stainless steel sinks come in a range of gauge thicknesses too, making it easier to find one that suits your particular needs and budget.
If you're more interested in composite sinks, or if you're looking for a black kitchen sink, Elkay's E-Granite sinks might be your answer. There are even some fireclay sinks available within Elkay's Explore sink family.
Take a look at the information below to get a closer look at what Elkay sinks have to offer.
Elkay makes sinks for both the bathroom and the kitchen and there's no shortage of styles to choose from. Elkay sinks are grouped into families, each with their own unique attributes, style perspective and targeted function.
Current sink families are listed below. Older product names and families including Elkay Lustertone, Elkay Celebrity and Elkay Elumina are now included in the newer family classifications like Elkay Gourmet and Elkay Harmony. Despite this assimilation however you might still find an Elkay Lustertone sink or an Elkay Celebrity sink as a stand-alone product family at various retailers.

If you thought sinks could be nothing more than just boring square fixtures, think again. Elkay has some unique, if not downright whimsical, designs for primary and secondary kitchen sinks and bar sinks.

To start with, Elkay's Mystic® Double Wave sinks give you that option for something other than 'just a square sink'. It might just the style needed to impart that special distinctiveness in your kitchen.
With a sink like this you'll need some coordination between your countertop fabricator and kitchen sink installer, given that the shape is not like your everyday kitchen sink.
These sinks are made from 18 gauge stainless steel in either single or double bowl configurations. They're also appointed with Elkay's Sound Guard® insulation to dampen sounds.

If you're really looking for a conversation piece at your bar or secondary sink, look no further than Elkay's Mystic® Martini sink. Formed in the shape of a traditional martini glass this sink could easily become the conversation starter for any get-together in your home.
Made out of 18 gauge stainless steel, the sink is 22 inches long and just over 20 inches wide at its widest point and will fit into a 27 inch base cabinet. It also features Sound Guard treatment.

On a more practical note Elkay's Avado Accent sinks offer versatility and funtionality in a drop-in style yet with the modern look typical of Avado undermount sinks.
These sinks come in several configurations, both single and double bowl styles. One interesting twist on the double-bowl sink is a back-and-front bowl configuration. One long trough-like bowl is positioned behind a larger 'single' bowl in front. One use for this style of sink might be for defrosting food items in the back bowl while freeing up the front bowl for other tasks.
Avado Accent sinks are made from 16 gauge stainless steel and feature the same characteristic lines and 90-degree corners found on their undermount cousins.
Elkay offers a limited lifetime warranty on their stainless steel sinks according to their published information. Coverage is against failures due to manufacturing defects, effective for the life of a sink's normal residential use.
What's not covered is any failure or damage due to abusive treatment, misuse, normal wear and tear, the use of aggressive or abrasive cleaners and other similar causes.
Elkay sinks of other materials like fireclay, copper and E-Granite are not mentioned in the warranty information published on their website. Elkay's FAQ section states that any questions or need for additional warranty information be directed to their customer service center.
