First things first, if you find a commercial-grade kitchen sink that is well priced, then it’s certainly worth a look. Of course, it can also mean a cheaper quality, but then there are also hidden gems that give you a much greater bang for your buck than you could ever get with other more expensive products.
And the Gridmann 1 Compartment is precisely the kind of product that falls under the second, amazing-value-for-money category. Yes, it’s a commercial-grade heavy-duty kitchen sink, but it doesn’t compromise on the quality front to offer an affordable price.
With that said, let’s get a bit more specific about why we think about it the way we do.
Unmatched Value for Money
We can’t emphasize enough how rare it is to find a commercial-grade kitchen sink that boasts a surprisingly good quality at this price. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty commercial kitchen sink WITHOUT breaking the bank, then the Gridmann 1 Compartment is totally something you would want to consider.
As the name suggests, it comes with just a single compartment, but it’s very large and deep and wouldn’t have a problem living up to its “commercial” tag as far as the washing area capacity is concerned.
For something priced this cheap, you would probably expect it to have functionality issues. However, you will be pleased to know that the Gridmann 1 Compartment comes out a winner on this front as well.
While there’s a bit of an issue with the placement of the legs of the sink, it’s not something that would interfere with the real work you will be using the sink for. The most that you may face due to this is not being able to put a lot of things on the drainboard, as it’s not very freestanding.
Apart from that, however, the Gridmann 1 Compartment is incredibly functional for its price. It comes with adjustable-height feet, meaning that no matter whether the person using it is short or tall, they will enjoy a great level of convenience while working. The side drainboard is going to be a real asset, making it a lot easier to do your usual washing.
While the design is modern and stylish, it too adds to the functionality. There are the carefully designed drip channel and rounded edges that help avoid common annoying washing issues and ensure a greater working comfort. Similarly, you also get a high-quality basket strainer that can come in handy when doing “high-volume” washing.
This should put all your worries about the quality of this product to rest. There are strict standards to meet in order to get the NSF certification, and you can certainly consider anything boasting the NSF certified tag to be a quality product. An NSF certification means that the product can handle heavy-duty use and is perfectly safe for public use.
The Gridmann 1 Compartment is actually also made from 18-gauge stainless steel, and built to last a lifetime. Except for its legs that could have been slightly sturdier, the construction of the sink doesn’t leave much to be desired.
Easy to Install
Although this isn’t the most important factor, it does matter, especially when it comes to commercial kitchen sinks. Many of them call for professional help for proper installation, which can mean having to spend quite a bit of money over what you paid for the sink.
The Gridmann 1 Compartment, however, is fairly easy to install and you may be able to install it on your own.
Finally, there’s sometimes this shipping issue that leads to the product being delivered in a poor packaging, but that’s probably the only thing you won’t like about the Gridmann 1 Compartment, given you don’t expect it to be comparable to a high-end commercial-grade kitchen sink.
