Your Karran stainless steel sink is produced from the highest quality nickel bearing stainless steel. With the right care, as suggested on the Karran website, www.karran.com, it will last a lifetime.
All Karran sinks have a lustrous satin bowl finish which is easy to maintain and clean. Many cleaners work well with Karran stainless steel sinks. Some of the cleaners that work best are Comet, Soft Scrub and Mr. Clean. Use one of these recommended cleaners to keep your sink looking like new.
Tips & Warnings:
- It is recommended that you rinse your sink thoroughly after each use and towel dry. This will inhibit the buildup of mineral deposits on the sink’s surface that may cause your sink to lose its lustrous appearance.
- When scouring your sink, which should be done weekly, ensure that you rub in the direction of the satin finish grain lines. Do not scour across the satin finish grain lines, as this will damage the lustrous satin finish of your sink. The deck of your Karran sink may, depending on model, have a polishes/mirror finish. Do not clean this with any type of abrasive cleaner. Use water and a soft cloth only. Do not place pots and pans on the bowl divider, as this may scratch the polished finish.
- Do not leave soaps or other cleaners in your sink to dry. Most contact chemicals that could, if left on the surface, damage it.
- Do not soak your sink with solutions of bleach. Bleach contains chemicals that may damage your sink if left on the surface for an extended period of time.
- Do not use steel wool on your sink. Steel wool can break down and leave small particles of steel on your sink’s surface that may rust. If aggressive cleaning is needed, use a 3M Scotch-Brite pad.
The use of rubber mats is not recommended as they may cause possible pitting or surface rust. If mats are used, remove them from your sink after each use. Stainless steel, like most metallic surfaces, can scratch. These scratches will blend in to the overall satin finish of your sink over time. Do not use your sink as a cutting board or chopping block, as this type of use may cause deep scratches in the finish of your sink.
