What is the purpose of kitchen sink with different sized basins?


I installed a sink with two different sized basins. One is very large and deep, one is smaller and shallower.
I bought this sink because my wife liked it. However, I have no idea how to use the different sized basins, or even which one to install the disposal on. Do you guys have any idea?

Thanks

Your wife most likely asks the same questions about some of your tools.

It's nothing to be concerned about. It's her tool. She knows how to use it.


Side note: if it's like ours, a 5 gal buckets fits in the deep side nicely. Handy when you want to fill it with warm water to wash the car.

The disposer goes onto the smaller sink----

These are great for folks that use a dishwasher---and use the sink mainly for washing pots------------

Small sink is intended for washing off vegetables & meats.

I find small the small side is also good for washing off paint brushes

And if you use the big side for soaking engine parts in, you will soon find that your wife will 'ask' you to stay out of the kitchen. Which means more garage time for you.
