Insulating 2-bowl kitchen sink?

Anybody ever done this? Good idea or waste of time & foam?

From Family Handyman:

Deaden sounds with expanding foam

Fill the space between two [COLOR=blue !important]stainless steel sink[/COLOR] basins with expanding foam. The foam deadens vibrations and lessens the gong effect. It's possible to do this with the sink in place but much neater and easier before installation. Either way, let the foam harden and then trim away the excess with a knife.

Might be a good idea for some people.

I know you can always trim/cut away the foam like you said, but it just seems painful if you ever have to replace or work on your plumbing/faucet. Hard enough to work under a cramped kitchen sink.

Personally, I'm not bothered by the gong or metallic sound so I wouldn't do it, but it is a good idea. Just my opinion.
