Are your sinks made of pure copper?
Copper Kitchen Specialists uses only pure copper sheet good to fabricate all of its products. Our finished copper products do not contain lead or selenium dioxide. We keep the art of making beautiful copper products simple and true. Not only are our sheet goods made of raw copper but are tig welds are as well. A rod tig weld is used by welding additional copper wherever there is a seem. This weld allows us to give a lifetime structural warranty to all of our products. Copper Kitchen Specialists also uses larger than average sheet goods which allows us to fold the sides of our prep and kitchen sinks which create a slight radius in the bottom pan. This aids the water to drain and prevents sitting water. This radius is also much more attractive.
What gauge copper are your sinks?
Copper Kitchen Specialists uses 16 gauge copper for all of its sinks and 16 gauge copper for the hoods and tubs. Please know that the lower the gauge of copper the thicker the sheet good. Most stainless steel sinks are either 18 gauge or 20 gauge. Copper is less dense than stainless steel and one should not be purchased anything less than 16 gauge.
Are the dimensions listed the measurements of the outside or inside of the sinks?
All of the dimensions listed on CopperKitchenSpecialists.com are taken from outside edge to outside edge. Our copper kitchen sinks are made with two inch rims all the way around the sink. If the sink is a double bowl then the middle divider is also two inches. All of our prep, bar, trough, and bath sink have rims of one inch.
Can you make custom products and designs?
If you can think of or find a particular design, more than likely we can make it. All of our designs on sinks and hoods are interchangeable. Copper Kitchen Specialists can also make just about any size sink or hood to your specifications. If you need to customize, please contact us; we would be happy to help.
What color faucet should I purchase with my sink?
Copper Kitchen Specialists recommends using oil rubbed bronze faucets with our medium and dark finishes. The light finish matches most faucet manufacturer's copper faucets. Copper faucets tend to be very light and metallic, which often looks contemporary. Most of our sinks are paired with oil rubbed bronze.
How long will it take before I receive my order?
We are proud to make our hoods and sinks to order, though we do carry some more common sizes in our inventory. Sink orders are estimated at 4 weeks to produce and deliver. Our copper hoods are delivered between 3-7 weeks. Many times Copper Kitchen Specialists will expedite orders faster than the above listed times; however, in order to keep your project running smoothly we have listed these time frames as a good point of reference.
Will my sink or hood change color over time?

Will your sinks sound metallic?
Copper Kitchen Specialists uses sound reducing pads on all of our Copper Bar Sinks and Copper Kitchen Sinks. These pads are standard practice in the stainless steel markets yet not all copper sink manufactures utilize this sound reducing feature. Our utility copper sinks will not sound metallic.
