Made in Europe, the high quality fireclay and glazing in highly durable and thermal shock resistant, meaning it can withstand fast changes in temperatures such as boiling water on a cold morning. The sink is highly stain and chemical resistant, making it more hygienic than most sinks on the market. Adding to the unique beauty of the sink is its Fineclay composition, which is a stronger and less brittle product than ceramic, making it highly durable against the impacts of daily washing up. With a lifetime warranty, you cannot go wrong with a Turner Hastings sink. It includes two free basket wastes to suit. Protect the base of the sink using either the stainless steel grids custom made to suit the Chester bowls, or use the rubber sink mat (both options are purchased separately on this website).
