6 Reasons to Consider a Fireclay Sink for Your Outdoor Kitchen


When it comes to creating an outdoor kitchen, one of the key considerations is choosing the right sink, and it's hard to overlook the compelling advantages of a fireclay sink.


In an outdoor kitchen environment, durability is paramount. Exposed to the elements, your sink needs to withstand the challenges of outdoor living. Fireclay sinks are made from a blend of clay and glaze that is fired at high temperatures, resulting in a durable, non-porous surface that are specifically engineered for outdoor conditions and offer impressive sink durability. Unlike other materials, fireclay sinks do not rust, chip, or stain easily, making them an ideal choice for outdoor use.

Heat Resistance:

A fireclay sink, known for its heat-resistant properties, can confidently withstand the heat generated by hot pots and pans without any damage. This makes them an ideal choice for outdoor kitchens where grilling and cooking over an open flame often take place near the sink, ensuring the longevity of your heat-resistant sink.

Easy to Clean:

Fireclay sinks are not only known for their durability but also for being a stain-resistant sink and a low-maintenance kitchen sink. Their non-porous surface makes them exceptionally easy to clean and ensures that the sink remains stain-free over time. Moreover, these sinks are highly scratch-resistant, setting them apart from other synthetic sinks in the market that tend to stain and scratch easily.

UV Stable:

The glazing in a Turner Hastings' fireclay sink feature a remarkably durable glazing process. Before firing them at temperatures exceeding 1220˚C, the color is expertly sprayed onto the sink. This means the colour is fused into the clay which makes it impossible to scratch any glaze off, guaranteeing long-lasting quality.

Furthermore, the color glazing is applied before the firing process, whether they sport a matte black, concrete look finish, or glossy and matte white options. This consistency means that sinks are UV stable and immune to the effects of sunlight, maintaining their finish and quality over time.

Aesthetically Pleasing:

Fireclay sinks come in a range of styles and colours, adding to their aesthetic appeal and making them a versatile choice for any outdoor kitchen design. Whether you prefer an inset/undermount or a butler/farmhouse style, you'll find a fireclay sink that perfectly complements your space. Explore the array of colors and sizes available on our website.

Environmentally Friendly:

Fireclay sinks are made from natural materials, free from any harmful chemicals or toxins, making them an excellent eco-friendly sink option for environmentally-conscious homeowners.
