Sink Opinions


I am getting ready to get lower cabinets, countertop, and new sink. I am wanting to see what some peoples opinions are for what type of sink bowl I should get. I will be getting a dishwasher, but won't be for a few months. My brother says one bowl because I will eventually have a dishwasher, but I am feeling two bowls. It will be a stainless steel type sink and will have a disposal unit, if that makes any difference. Anyway, just want to hear some peoples thoughts.

When we redid our kitchen, wifey wanted a single bowl w/ disposal.
We had plenty of room for a double but her reason was a single bowl can be much larger than any of the individual doubles.
We got a 22w x 24L x 10d Kohler cast iron enamel.
It's awesome.
I can put whole broiler pans, frying pans, buckets, you name it.
They all fit in there with plenty of room so I'm not washing things 1/2 in and 1/2 out of the sink.

Did you end up with the disposal as well? What are your thoughts on a large/medium 2 bowl? Similar to this?

Two bowls - as large/deep as you can afford/get!
(Three bowls,works too!)

Broiler pans - frying pans - buckets... BUCKETS!!?
(Take them outside and steam-clean them - that's what I always do!)

I would consider your habits. We have an automatic dishwasher but with just two adults in the house I rarely use it.

I have single large basin, and while it is convenient for large items, since I do mainly handwashing I would trade it for a double basin in a New York Second.
Actually I have a double basin sitting in the laundry room waiting to be installed.

I've done handwashing since 2003 as I never had a dishwasher since I've been on my own. I'm installing a dishwasher more for resale, than myself, but I'm sure I'll use it. Guess it will just come down to what I think and what I can afford, as it seems both have their pros.

Something happens to the dishwasher - vacation,strike,sickness -
(electrical/plumbing problems)
Hand washing dishes is easier in 2 bowls/sinks.
