BD-820-16 Rio

The double equal sink like the BD-820 Tipton sink from Cygnet Stainless continues to be the most popular sink. Known in the trade as a 5050 sink (50% of the bottom surface is in each sink) the sink can be used to wash or rinse in either sink and, if you install a garbage disposal, it can be placed in either sink.



BD-813L-16 Allante

The BD-813-16L Allante, which is commonly know as a 6040 sink, comes in big bowl left or the reverse, big bowl right. The small bowl is shallower to accommodate garbage disposals. The BD813-16  design allows the larger sink to be used for washing and the smaller for rinsing. Many customers want the smaller sink with the disposal closer to the dishwasher to allow the disposal to drain more efficiently.


BD-822L-16 Rio

The BD-822-16 Rio is also available with big bowl on either the left or right. Some consumers believe the shape is more dramatic than the 6040. The large sink has more room for washing dishes, but the small sink is smaller and does not allow a twelve-inch dinner plate to lay flat. The small sink is also shallower to make drainage of garbage disposal easier.




BS-800-16 Horizon

Large single bowls like the BS-800-16 Horizon are becoming more popular because most people do not fill the sink with soapy water to wash dishes because most kitchens have a dishwasher. These sinks accommodate larger pans. ANO recommends that big single bowls be sixteen gauge to avoid noise and damage from garbage disposal vibration. All Cygnet Sinks are made from heavier South Korean 16 gauge Stainless Steel which is heavier than Chinese 16 gauge.
