Silgranit sinks: top-class design for an exceptional look.
Every time you go into your kitchen and catch sight of your sink, you’ll find yourself beaming. It’s a real looker. Are you keen on straight lines? A young, fresh design will bring a smile to your face. Sophisticated, exclusive and unusual. You’ll love working here. For years on end. Soft, flowing surfaces are combined with cubic shapes. The bowl edge is high and solid, while also looking sleek and modern. Outstanding. You can hardly believe that this could be improved upon, but BLANCO high-end granite sinks made of Silgranit are a cut above. Sophisticated. With first-class drain remote control, C-overflow and InFino drain system. Cutting boards – elegant and easy-care.
Silgranit comes in an array of designs. Just as you like it. Charming, superb and impressive.
Well-thought-out functions that make your sink especially smart.
The basic elements? A bowl and a drainer. That’s all you need. BLANCO Silgranit basic models are timelessly classical and practical. Familiar, well-loved, simply great.
Your sink can be wonderfully functional. A small additional compartment between the bowl and drainer can be used to collect fruit peel and vegetable cuttings. To give one example. Could you do with an extra place to pour things out? We have just the thing.
Everything’s that bit bigger and that bit smarter. Families need more. Bigger pots and more room in the sink. Sounds good? The premium range of Silgranit sinks have large, deep bowls. The drainer offers more room for crockery than usual. A fresh smell of zesty lemon and salmon wafts through the kitchen. Do you love steam cooking? The bowls of the premium Silgranit sink range contain different levels. You can hang a steam cooking container there. Once you’ve chopped up onions and carrots on the matching cutting board, you can slide them into the cooking container lying alongside and then into the steam cooker. Which all means more time with your loved ones.
Vibrant colours in the kitchen. A round bowl in an angular inset, two or more bowls, all level with the worktop, or lying on top. Granite sinks made of Silgranit inject even more life into your kitchen.
Not in the mood to boil water in a kettle or pot? Why don't you use a hot water tap? Silgranit is not bothered by high temperatures. Boiling water is no problem.
Drawbacks of a granite sink
We are utterly convinced of the benefits of Silgranit. Every year, hundreds of thousands of kitchen purchasers and users worldwide are also impressed by Silgranit on a daily basis. That said, it’s worth being aware of the downsides of granite sinks. This will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to opt for a granite bowl or another material.
As a composite material, a granite sink is artificial stone. This means that it has the advantages and disadvantages of stone. It is hard and resistant. You might be washing wine glasses in the sink. A moment’s distraction, and a glass falls into the sink. Unfortunately, the glass is extremely likely to break, likewise a ceramic sink. By contrast, in a stainless steel sink it has a much higher chance of emerging unscathed.
A kitchen sink made of Silgranit will be very easy to maintain, as dirt cannot adhere to the material or penetrate the surface. If you live in an area with hard water, i.e. containing a high level of chalk, limescale deposits can build up in your bowl over time. You won’t notice it right away, but it will become visible after several weeks. This limescale can then pick up other stains. These are easy to remove by giving it a deep clean with descaling agents such as BLANCO Antikalk and BLANCO Aktiv.
One thing that sometimes causes an issue: for most of our granite sinks, you are free to choose where you want your kitchen mixer tap to go. That’s why the hole is not drilled through. Instead, you can choose to knock or drill a hole through in one of the several marked places. Your kitchen fitter will be happy to do this for you, or you can watch our how-to video.
So there you have it. Silgranit is not perfect, either. We are continuing to work on it.
