Frequently Asked Questions - Stainless Steel Copper Sinks
How is the Stainless Copper color obtained?
The copper color is achieved by fusing a very thin layer of specialty metal to the surface. The type of metal and the thickness
offers the desired hue.
How does the Stainless Copper differ from regular stainless steel?
The Stainless Steel Copper is AISI304 grade stainless steel which has been submitted to a superficial
coating. This coating is very thin (just a few atom layers thick), but has nevertheless an exceptional surface
hardness, approximately 250 to 375% greater than a standard stainless steel with chrome-treatment. A high
resistance to wear and abrasion are additional benefits of the coating. Moreover, the thin film-coating is
completely resistant to UV rays, which maintains the color properties over time. The treatment is resistant to
acid solvents, alkali and household cleaning products, and is absolutely bio-compatible.
How does the Stainless Steel Copper sink differ from a standard Copper sink?
The two types of sinks are made from completely two different materials; the Stainless Steel Copper sink is
made of stainless steel while a standard copper sink is just that, copper. Therefore, the Stainless Steel Copper
sink performs much better than copper sinks over time, because it will not oxidize or patina.
What are best practices for the care and maintenance of a copper stainless steel sink?
For everyday maintenance, wash the sink with water and soap or dish soap. Thoroughly rinse and dry with a
cloth. For heavy-duty cleaning, specific cleaning products for stainless steel, such as Steel Clean*, can be
used. If other cleaners are used, please make sure that the product is creamy and not powdery, and that the
cream does not contain solid particles that may scratch the material. Remember that all cleaning materials
should be used in moderation. (*Note: Steel Clean is available on ROHL’s web site.)
Take care to avoid hitting the surface, dropping heavy objects into the sink, and using utensils which can
scratch the surface. Also, prevent contact with chemicals, metal products and metal brushes. Do not leave
tomato residue, milk or coffee on the sink for an extended period of time. Avoid metal cans with wet
bottoms, and iron objects in general, including cleaning sponges with steel wool. Please note that long
contact of any of the above mentioned substances with the sink can start an electrochemical corrosive attack,
even though very mild which may show as very small brownish marks.
Is this sink heat resistant?
Stainless Copper Steel resists heat up to 500° F.
Are there common substances that can harm the Stainless Steel and Stainless Copper surface?
Prolonged contact with common items such as tomato residue, salty liquids, milk, coffee, and cola can start
an electrochemical corrosive attack, even though very mild. Wash the sink with water and soap or dish soap,
and thoroughly rinse and dry with a cloth.
Long-term, how will the sinks’ surfaces perform?
The Copper Stainless Steel sink will not change color, oxidize or patina over time because it is made only of
stainless steel and contains no copper at all. Heavy duty use will shorten the lifespan of the surface finish.
Does Stainless Steel Copper scratch?
Stainless Steel Copper is obtained through a secondary treatment of the stainless steel. If the surface is
submitted to rough use it might scratch, just like any other stainless sink. Please avoid the use of rough
bottom pots and pans, sharp cutlery, and other hard edge materials. A sink grid with matching finish is
recommended to prevent scratching that may occur from daily use.
Every day use may cause shallow scratches but will not expose the steel beneath the copper treatment.
Deeper scratches, such as those caused by a heavy, sharp object scraped across the sink’s surface, may
extend beyond the copper color. In this case, the coating will maintain its integrity and will not peel, bulge,
oxidize or discolor.
In which respects are the ROHL stainless steel copper sinks different and/or better than others?
The Rohl sinks are:
- Manufactured from 16-gauge AISI304 stainless steel which is the best stainless steel for this type of
application.
- Hand-crafted in Italy, by a family-owned company with more than 30 years of tradition, experience and
know-how in stainless steel’s craftsmanship. Partnering with the top-end Italian kitchen manufacturers,
sinks and custom-made stainless steel worktops are supplied.
- Distinctive in the unique finish provided. This feature is both nice in appearance, to the touch and
easier to clean and maintain. This means that the sink will remain beautiful for a longer time.
- Fully sound-proofed. The sound-deadening material on 100% of the surface of each wall and the bottom
ensures a perfect sound-proofing, with a characteristic “dead” sound when knocked-upon.
- Designed using a Tangent Edge, with 9 mm radius on the bottom of the bowl and zero mm radius on the
vertical walls gives. These features offer a minimalistic look on the vertical walls while ensuring better
cleaning capabilities where it’s needed, on the bottom corners.
Which cleaning materials should be avoided?
Do not use: hydrochloric acid, muriatic acid, bleach, abrasive powders, steel wool, brushes or products for
cleaning silver and copper.
Frequently Asked Questions - Rohl Stainless Steel Sinks
How are the Rohl stainless steel sinks manufactured?
The Rohl stainless steel sinks are completely hand-crafted in Italy by a family owned company specializing
in appliances which has expanded their range to include the water appliance. Using AISI304 stainless steel,
the sinks are laser-cut to the precise measurements of the design. The material is then bent to the specified
shape making sure to achieve a 9mm radius at the bottom edges for ease of cleaning. This feature is called
Tangent Edge, and is distinctive to the Rohl sinks. The vertical corners are fit to a zero radius, which gives
the sink its characteristic minimal look. Upon completion of the sink, the sound-deaden pads are added to all
sides and the bottom of the sink. This material is quite similar to those products used in the automotive
industry to sound-proof car hoods and motor cavities. Not only is noise reduced but the advantage of
conserving temperature is provided.
During the fabrication process, the attention to detail is not spared; special brushes were selected and the
polish time extended to give the sink surface a distinctive, smoother finish. This provides an elegant look
while offering the functional benefits of reducing cleaning time, resisting hard water build-up, and making it
easier to remove fingerprints.
The exclusive design of the ROHL stainless steel sinks complements modern and minimalistic kitchens
while outperforming in terms of functionality and hygiene.

How should the stainless steel sinks be cleaned?
For everyday maintenance, wash the sink with water and soap or dish soap. Thoroughly rinse and dry with a
cloth. If the steel has a sheen from oil, wash with warm water and vinegar (10-15%), then rinse thoroughly
and dry.
For heavy-duty cleaning, specific cleaning products for stainless steel, such as Steel Clean*, can be used. If
other brands are used, please make sure that the product is creamy and not powdery, and that the cream does
not contain solid particles that may scratch the material. Abrasive products are not recommended.
Remember that all cleaning materials should be used in moderation.
Take care to avoid strikes, dropping heavy objects into the sink, and not using utensils which can scratch the
surface. Also, avoid contact with chemicals, metal products and metal brushes. Do not leave tomato residue,
milk or coffee on the sink for an extended period of time. Avoid metal cans with wet bottoms, and iron
objects in general, including cleaning sponges with iron wool. Please note that long contact of any of the
above mentioned substances with the sink can start an electrochemical corrosive attack, even though very
mild. (* Note: Steel Clean is available on ROHL’s website.)
Are there any common substances that should be avoided for Stainless Steel?
Prolonged contact with such common items as tomato residue, salty liquids, milk, coffee, and cola can start
an electrochemical corrosive attack, even though very mild. The process of electrochemical corrosive attack
would typically leave brownish circular marks on the surface, which are usually very small to start with (less
than 1 mm); but if the process is allowed to continue (i.e. if the metal or acid that has triggered the process is
not removed from the surface) it may grow to a few millimeters in diameter. The spots have an aspect akin to
rust, but are not formed by iron oxide, but rather caused by the molecular modifications of the chrome
superficial layer of the steel.
Always wash the sink with water and soap or dish soap after use, and thoroughly rinse and dry with a cloth.
What about scratches?
Stainless Steel can be scratched. The potential for scratching is not unique to ROHL stainless steel products
but is characteristic of any such material. The use of a bottom grid, as well as, taking normal care during the
use of the sink, will limit the scratches to the usual fine crisscrossing that becomes a mark of the life of the
product itself.
Avoid dragging heavy pots and pans, especially cast-iron ones, on the bottom of the sink as this may cause
deeper scratches. In general, please avoid the use of rough bottom pots and pans, sharp cutlery, and other
hard edge materials without the protection of a sink grid.
What about fingerprints?
On stainless steel, which is a smooth and more or less shiny material, the fingerprints show rather
prominently. However, on Rohl sinks, thanks to the distinctive, smoother finish, it is much easier to remove
prints compared to other sinks which have a rougher polish. The microfiber cloths supplied with the sink are
sufficient to eliminate the fingerprints, without using water or other detergents.
