How to Best Care for Your Franke's Peak Sink of Perfection

Modern aesthetic design, unsurpassed construction and exceptional functionality. These are just a few qualities that quickly come to mind when describing the Franke Peak luxury kitchen sink.

The Franke brand has singlehandedly commanded the luxury sink market for the past century since its inception. We recently asked Cathy Gutkowski, Franke’s director of marketing, what has been the secret of the company’s continued longstanding success.

“Our heritage speaks to who we are,” she said. “Some manufacturers try to do things less expensively, which is the antithesis to who we are. We don’t sacrifice quality and integrity. Our steel is purchased from Germany, Spain, Belgium and Finland. None of our steel is purchased from a low-cost country, which is a big deal because some sink manufacturers offer a sink with the counter top installation as a special to entice customers. If people knew they were getting steel from a low-cost country, they would rethink their purchase.”

We decided to see for ourselves what the Franke brand was all about. When doing a recent kitchen renovation, we selected the Peak PKX11028 super deep stainless steel single bowl undermount sink for its modern sharp edges and contemporary design.
