Blanco Sinks

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Silgranit® Blanco Sinks?
These composite granite sinks consist of 80% natural granite and acrylic resins. They have the look & feel of natural stone.

Silgranit®, (a registered trademark of Blanco), is colored all the way through and resistant to scratching, chipping and most household stains. It's also heat resistant, impervious to acids & alkalis, easy to clean & maintain. Blanco was founded in Germany in 1925. This company was the first manufacturer in the world to offer colored sinks with SILACRON, a quartz-based material.

What Styles And Colors Are Available?
They come in a variety of materials, colors and styles. Materials include stainless steel as well as their own Silgranit®.

Blanco Sinks

Blanco offers deep single or double bowl sinks in many different shapes, sizes and colors. They offer unique accessories for their sinks such as:

One of my favorites is their Performa collection. It's curvy and maximizes counter top space. This collection includes over 37 models in Silgranit®. Some of these sinks are multi level and incorporate an integrated drainer board.

They are available in both under mount (sits below your countertop) or top mount (sits on top of your countertop) styles. The colors range from a bright Artic White to the neutral Biscotti Beige or the deep & dark Cafe Brown.

How Do I Clean My Blanco Silgranit® Sink?
Clean your sink frequently with a soft cloth and a non abrasive cleaner such as Blanco Clean Colored Sink and Surface Cleaner ALWAYS Rinse and Wipe after each use. Drying your sink eliminates water spots and soap film build up.

To Add Luster -
Use Blanco Clean for composite granite sinks. This non abrasive cleaner was made for Silgranit® and helps bring back the luster.

Can I Set A Hot Pot In My Sink?
These sinks are heat resistant up to 536°F. Your kitchen sink is not recommended as a cooling spot for hot objects.

Should I Seal My Sink?
Blanco sinks are non porous so sealing is not needed.

Will My Granite Sink Stain?

If it does - here's how to remove it:

  • Adhesive Labels: Acetone.
  • Calcium Deposits (white ring around the bottom of your sink): Lime-A-Way.
  • Light Stains: Non abrasive cleanser, such as Blanco Clean, and a soft scouring pad such as Scotch Brite.
  • Tough Stains: Bar Keepers Friend Baking Soda, Vinegar, Or a solution of 50% water and 50% bleach. Let it sit for one hour. Scrub and rinse well. This is not a routine cleaning method. Clean with Blanco Clean to put the protective coating back on your sink's surface.

CAUTION: Not using Blanco Clean?Always test non-Blanco branded stain removers in a small out of the way area!!!


  • Abrasive cleaning agents.
  • Scrub pads such as steel wool.
  • Ammonias or caustic acid solutions.
  • Straight bleach.
