Sink shopping is a bit like gambling.
The odds are tilted heavily in favor of you losing the game and a ton of cash as well. Well, it’s the same with a sink.
Sure, you walk into the showroom, buy the shiniest thing you can find and feel good about yourself, only for the confounded thing to start leaking, lose its luster and crack within a year of purchase.
Oh, warranty? How cute!
So, wouldn’t it be nice if you could get yourself a sink that’s made solidly from high-quality materials, lasts long, has a great finish and guarantees peace of mind? Introducing the Bocchi Classico!
Its fireclay construction makes it unique and distinct to other sinks and guarantees durability and longevity.
So, without further ado, let’s take you on a tour of the Bocchi Classico.
Bocchi Sink Reviews 2019: Why do we recommend this product?
By far, the first and foremost distinctive feature of the Classico is its fireclay construction.
Fireclay construction has a lot of benefits. Firstly, it’s very environmentally-friendly as it is a completely organic material and has been used by craftsmen for centuries. It makes sense to use fireclay because it provides a lot of strength and its other benefits are elaborated below.
Secondly, fireclay has the benefit of being incredibly stain-resistant. Spilled some wine? No problem. Dropped some food? No problem!
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, fireclay is highly heat-proof. In fact, it can withstand temperatures up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that you can just dump scalding water onto this sink, and it’ll withstand it!
Also, fireclay is resistant to cracking, impact and shattering. This means that if you accidentally drop utensils, the Classico will be least affected.
But wait, there’s more! The benefits of fireclay do not end there, and the perks of having fireclay construction will make themselves evident below.
Another benefit of fireclay construction is that it is customizable and holds its finish incredibly well.
That’s why Bocchi decided to give the Classico NINE finishes. Just imagine, if you don’t like one of the colors of the Classico, you have eight others to choose from! The colors are White, Matte White, Matte Black, Black, Matte Blue, Sapphire Blue, Biscuit, Matte Dark Gray and Matte Brown.
Wait, why are there so many matte colors on this list? Well, the reason is that fireclay makes it very hard to give the color a luster, but apart from that, the finishes themselves are of the highest quality and are not prone to staining or chipping.
The design of the Classico deserves a mention. It is an apron-type sink, which means your countertop won’t cover the front of the sink; an apron on the front of the sink will.
This design means that you will have to cut the front edge of the countertop along the length of the sink, which might put some off, but there are very distinct benefits to this design.
It saves a ton of space, allows the faucet to be mounted in tight spaces, helps with clean-up and makes the sink easy to mount.
The Classico also comes with a strainer and a bottom grid for added functionality. The grid has a useful cutout for the drain, which means it allows dirt, grime and other mess to flow unhindered with the water.
Where does this product disappoint?
Unfortunately, the Classico, despite its brilliance, still falls short on a few counts.
Firstly, the fireclay construction presents a slight trade-off, because it prevents lustrous paints from being added on. That might be a deal-breaker for some, but if an elegant, understated sink is what you’re looking for, this sink is perfect. Still, the lack of shiny options is a little disappointing.
Next, the cut-out at the front also makes the countertop look a little awkward. Of course, that is down to personal preference, and when done right, it can look absolutely stunning, not to mention how much space it frees.
- Fireclay construction has several benefits
- Amazing finish
- Well-judged design
- Strainer and grill work well
- Tons of color options
- Lustrous color options missing
- The design may put some off
These days, finding a good sink is tough and you’re more likely than not to end up with a rotten egg.
However, the sink we’ve featured for you today, the Bocchi Classico, is an amazing value proposition. It is made solidly and from great material, it is resistant to cracking, staining and leaking, it has a variety of colors and the finishes are amazing.
We wholeheartedly recommend buying this sink.
