Personally, I like the dual sinks (same size). When we did a little kitchen remodel I wanted & bought the
dual sinks so I could put an in-sink drying rack. I thought I was getting the standard size but
once installed, I couldn't find a rack that would fit (rounded corners in the sinks). I had to order one
that cost about $90.00. (most of the time we also wash by hand too).

Thought I'd post another option (although it isn't stainless steel).

Personally, I've hated the double sinks that I've had. The big side is never big enough and the small side is pretty useless and they're not deep enough. One of the first things I did in this house was replace the sink. It's a a drop in stainless one, but it's big and very deep. I love it!

We just bought a big, double sided farmhouse sink with an apron front, cast iron with porcelain overlay. LOL the jury's still out - I don't even have my kitchen faucet in yet! I have no idea how functional it is but dang, it looks good!

I personally greatly prefer double sinks. I like one side with the disposal and the other side to put a few dishes in it during the day, leaving one side free. (I load the dishwasher throughout the day but there are often a few glasses or spoons in the sink.)

We did soapstone counter tops. I love them.

Agree 100%. I forgot about the disposal/utensils in sink issue - thanks for reminding me about that!

Check out a
Mila Flatiron stainless steel sink

They are dual mount, double bowl- welded. Not punch-pressed. Much stronger, durable, and hold more volume.

This is the sink we bought when we were building our house in 2012-13.

Shop Kindred 18-Gauge Double-Basin Undermount Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink at Lowes.com

Very pricey but I love it. I wash on the small side (left) and rinse and air dry on the right side. I use rubber mats on the bottom to prevent scratching.

Silgranit Precis Blanco in charcoal black. This is what I have and I LOVE IT. When we were renovating our kitchen I knew from the beginning that I wanted this sink and was determined to have it. Found it on sale for 50% off just when it was time to order - so lucky!
