One of the most important pieces of equipment in a restaurant is the sink. Commercial sinks come in all shapes and sizes for different purposes, be it food prep, ware washing, and of course, washing your hands. But the most common and useful sink in the industry is the 3 compartment sink. Many food service operations are required to have these sinks to rinse, wash and sanitize utensils, tableware and equipment in the event that their automatic ware washer malfunctions. We recognize the value of the compartment sink’s role in the kitchen so we’ve compiled a list of our top three 3 compartment sinks and reasons why we love them.
