Nowadays, to save space the length of one bowl is kept at 15” and the other one at 21”. One sink is filled with hot soapy water and the other with clear, colder water for rinsing.
Pros of using a Single Bowl sink
Single bowl sinks are popular today because they help in washing large dishes like a large roasting pan, a wok or lobster pot or a big pressure cooker or kadhai or pateela and no divider to bump into. A big single bowl will also hold all the dishes, so the kitchen looks more orderly.
Cons of a Single Bowl Sink
There is no option to separate the clean dishes from the dirty ones. You can’t thaw meat or wash vegetables while the sink is full of dishes.
Pros of a Double Bowl Sink
Double bowl sinks are ideal for washing dishes by hand. You can put normal water into one bowl, scrub these dishes and keep the clean dishes in the other bowl. You can also wash vegetables in one sink and stack your dirty dishes in another. Double bowl sinks help you separate your delicate utensils from heavier items like steel plate, bowls etc. Single bowls need more detergent and more water making the double bowl sink eco-friendly.
Cons of a Double Bowl Sink
Double bowl sinks are mostly larger, longer 40-48” and upto 60” in length therefore consuming a lot of counter space. The Installation charges for Double bowl sinks are much more than for single bowl sinks. And there will be time when neither side of the sink will be big enough for large utensils.
