Compartment sinks are available with one to four bowls. Stainless steel sinks, like the ones in this section, can also come with or without drain boards and a standard basket-style drain. Faucets are typically not included but some manufacturers do ship compartment sinks with faucets. Each configuration is designed to fulfill a specific task in the commercial kitchen. Ensure that you have a place to wash dishes, prepare ingredients and keep your establishment clean with the help of a new compartment sink.
One compartment sinks and two compartment sinks are primarily used as food prep sinks in which fruit and vegetable products are washed before serving. Single-bowl sinks can also be used as mop sinks, but you cannot use a single sink as both a mop and prep sink; the risk of food contamination is too high. Three compartment sinks and four compartment sinks are used to wash large pots or pans that will not fit into the washer. Health codes also require that at least a three-bowl sink be present in every commercial kitchen, in case the dishwasher breaks down. Some items cannot be washed in a dishwasher, give your employees a place to wash these specialty dishes with the addition of a compartment sink to your kitchen equipment.
