    What is the difference between a fabricated stainless steel sink and a molded stainless steel sink?

    I am looking to purchase a new stainless steel kitchen sink and have been a little confused.

    What is the difference between a fabricated stainless steel sink and a molded stainless steel sink?

    Molded or drawn stainless steel sinks are found in most kitchens because of the many designs available and the attractive price ranges to choose from.

    Basically, a molded stainless steel sink is made by pressing a sheet of steel into a mold. This process produces smooth, rounded sink bowls that are easy to install and maintain.

    A fabricated stainless steel sink is made by bending, cutting and welding metal sheets to form a box-like kitchen sink. This type of sink is popular for professional style kitchens, but you may need to fabricate a little extra money in your budget to include a fabricated stainless steel sink.

    Fabricated sinks are made by bending and welding the stainless steel to form it into geometric angles to provide more space for dishes.

    A drawn, or molded, stainless steel sink is made by pressing the steel over a mold, so there are no seams.
