Default Recommendations for S/S kitchen sink

My old Americast kitchen sink is slowly disintegrating, going to replace it with S/S, a deep bowl model, who makes the best?

Elkay's Crossstown line is pretty nice. Very low profile lip for the top mount models, in fact the top mounts can be under-mounted. I put a 33x21 dbl bowl in the last place and loved it.

The lower center divider is the way to go as well.

I've been really impressed with the Blanco stainless steel sinks.

Tell you what. I don't care for stainless sinks, no matter how careful you are they will scuff up, hard to keep looking clean, sound like a drum in your cabinet base.

The last I put in some 5 years ago or so is a cultured type granite, from your guessed it "Lowe's" sorry, but its for my house.

Very similar to this one >>>> https://www.lowes.com/pd/Dekor-Master-22-in-x-33-in-Mocha-Double-Basin-Granite-Drop-in-or-Undermount-4-Hole-Residential-Kitchen-Sink/50301325 very
Very durable, not bad to clean, (you have to watch for water spots) no shine to loose a couple of colors to keep the focus off the sink. So far we love it.

You can not go wrong with an Elkay sink. I put in a deep and wide 1 compartment sink in my kitchen. The wife loves it because she can easily put a whole pan or big pot down in it so it makes it easy to clean the big things.

Blanco's sinks are decent. Their prices (at least in this country) are too high. The strainers they supply, even with their most expensive sinks, are 100% total garbage. Just chuck them directly into the dumpster and install something decent instead.
