Triple bowl kitchen sinks are invaluable to those who love to cook. They are most common in commercial kitchens. They typically feature a smaller bowl in between two larger bowls. The smaller bowl is normally used for food prep: washing fruit and veggies, handling meat, filling jars, and more.
When you’re working with many tools and ingredients in the kitchen, having an extra sink bowl can make a huge difference.
A drawback, though, is that triple bowl sinks usually take up the most space, meaning you’ll have a bit less counter space to use.
While standard kitchen sinks measure 33” wide from left to right, a decent sized triple bowl sink measures at least 35” wide. They may not fit those standard 36” kitchen base cabinets.
But if you have plenty of space in the kitchen and cook a lot, triple bowl kitchen sinks may be the best configuration for you.

Premier Copper Products KTDB422210 (42”, 14 Gauge Copper, Undermount/Drop-In)
While copper sinks may not appeal to everyone, this Premier Copper Products triple bowl sink is a great product. Copper is an underrated material due to the popularity of new metals such as stainless steel. But it has properties that make it unique.
For example, copper can naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria and viruses. You don’t need anything particular to clean a copper sink other than your regular soap and water. Copper is lightweight. And it also has an ability to take on a natural patina to give it a one-of-a-kind look.
The thickness of copper is measured in gauge like stainless steel. The lower this number, the thicker the material and the stronger and better it is. This particular sink is made out of 14 gauge copper which is considered the best thickness for copper sinks.
