Smile Sink Options

Hello,

We are working on our decision making for purchasing an Escape 17B. One area we are looking at are options for the kitchen sink and stove top.

I learned that Escape has updated their standard stove top to a great looking Suburban stainless w/ a flush glass top. Great move on their part...

I'm hoping I can have them install an upgraded sink to follow suite. Preferably a stainless w/ a glass top. Similar to the Dometic sinks: https://www.dometic.com/en-us/us/pro.../cooking/sinks

However, Escape says that the sink faucet has to be counter mounted - not sink mounted like the Dometic sinks.

Does anyone have suggestions on a sink that is like the Dometic but doesn't use a sink mounted faucet?

.....and has anyone had Escape install the Dometic by off chance w/ some finagling? Why can't they do a sink mounted faucet?

Thanks!!

Alan

We, too, are hoping to replace the sink with a deeper one as part of our build (August 1 delivery). We are seeking recommendations for a deeper --- though not wider --- sink that Escape would install for us.

Contact Escape to find out the max size they will install. Then look for bar sinks in that size. Really easy process if you know the max size they will install. The rest is just shopping.

Think it would be hard to incorporate a faucet not mounted in sink with a glass top.

Thank you. I have been told only that one side cannot exceed 16". What I am trying to find out is the size of the hole. In truth, it is rather like pulling teeth to get that specific detail from ETI.

We went with this Ruvati sink we found. It has good depth and size, and comes with the bottom rack and an excellent food-solids catch basket that is easy to remove and clean.

If it were me, I'd buy a sink where the faucet mounts around the sink, not outside. Seems like every Escape I've had, with the old style and new style faucets, I always find water on the countertop and constantly mopping it up.
