Durable and long-lasting kitchen sinks are hard to find.

Needless to say, the Glowtone was able to tick a lot of boxes on our checklist, and we hope it becomes your pick as well.

The sink fits in a 36-inch sink base and is supplied with cutout templates, fasteners, and instructions that make it even easier for the user to avail of all its benefits.
Long Lasting and Robust
Stainless steel is known for its fantastic durability and robust nature, and Houzer uses the best kind of it in their Glowtone series. The 20-gauge sink is made of type 304 stainless steel which is an ideal 18/10 mix of chrome and nickel, and that sets the Glowtone apart from the rest of its competition.
The premium durability of the core makes the sink extremely resistant to corrosive chemicals and physical damage, all the while keeping the surface hygienic and bacteria free. It’s easy to clean with just the help of a washcloth, and you will be able to preserve its flawless look with minimal care for a very long time.
Noise Proof and Thermally Insulated
Like all other Houzer sinks, the Glowtone sink comes with a Super-Silencer pad as well. Made from natural rubber, the padding is just amazing when you want to minimize the noise made from running water and dish clatter. If you have babies or noise sensitive people at home, the Glowtone will fit your needs like a glove.
The Glowtone also comes with StoneGuard protection, which is a marble powder based undercoating that helps in insulating your sink. Not only will you be able to keep the water warm for longer, but its new vibration absorption qualities will help in noise reduction as well.
What can Houzer choose to improve on in their Glowtone series of Kitchen Sinks?
Even though with all its durability and long-lasting, robust nature, stainless steel fails when it comes to water stains and fingerprint marks. If not dried out entirely, water stains will be more noticeable after an extended period of use.
Stainless steel feels entirely silver to the naked eye and to touch. This kind of appeal might be ideal for the kitchen area but will inevitably ruin a bathroom’s aesthetics.
