Zero radiusYou may hear the term zero radius during your search for the ideal stainless-steel kitchen sink. Zero radius refers to the shape of the corners of the sink. As opposed to the more conventional and gently curved corners and sloped sides in most other types, a zero radius sink is completely rectangular with 90-degree corners and completely straight sides. The simple flat, squared planes of this style of sink are very much in keeping with minimalist contemporary-style kitchen design, however, this look comes with a disadvantage. Zero radius sinks are more difficult to clean due to the tight square corners. You may want to weight up how much you love this look versus how much time and effort you want to put into cleaning your new sink.
