I was advised off the white sink by a friend whose Escape has one that is discolored.

On our stainless sink, I have noticed little spots that look like rust, but they're apparently not, as they clean up right away (and don't come back in the same place).

We ended up going with the 3 burner cooktop with oven (which is black), in part because I much preferred its installation: all the way over to the edge of the counter. I had thought I'd like the 2 burner stove in the portrait orientation, but changed my mind at the last minute - and at Thanksgiving I was glad to have the 3 burners. (I never had them all going at once, but the larger pots I was cooking in were easy to handle.) I also can say I like the cooktop because it's easy to clean: the grill comes off without removing any hold-down screws. (This is a comparison to the stove in my 1999 Casita, however; I don't know how it works on the 2 and 3 burner cooktops Escape installs.) I also baked 3 pies in the oven at Thanksgiving, and some andouille dressing. (Normally, I do the dressing in a dutch oven with charcoal, but it was a bit of a rainy day this year.)

That's way more info than you asked for, but it's my experience with our (my) choices.

An argument for stainless that applies to the 21 only. With the metal stripper pole already in stainless using a stainless sink and stove top with the vent hood makes for a better match.

We have the plastic white sink in our 19. We'd like to change it out for a stainless sink. The white sink works fine, but has one tiny blemish from dropping a hot match into it. No stains. We'd just prefer the stainless sink.

Does anyone know if there is a drop in stainless replacement? Anyone have a manufacturer and model number?

Thanks.

That brings some interesting... and perhaps concerning, images to mind...

Stripper Pole! Check out all the all-molded-towable forums! The pole by the door matches the sink and stove top. Stainless is the "new" in stuff.


Hey it matches
