Bocchi Sink Review - Fireclay
Shopping for a fireclay sink? Before getting started, I'd like to tell you a brief story about an online shopper we crossed paths with. Let's call her "Jenifer." Jenifer was shopping online trying to get her to sink delivered in time for the cabinet maker.
In a rush as always. She did her best trying to find the perfect sink online at the very best price. She ended up pulling the trigger with a less than the satisfactory brand (we won't mention names). When the sink arrived, it didn't even fit and showed visible signs of defects. This delayed her home renovation and ended up costing a ton.
Don't let what happened to Jenifer happen to you. Read our Bocchi fireclay sink review and stay informed.

Farmhouse & Undermount Fireclay Sinks
Bocchi’s fireclay sinks come in an impressive range of sizes, from tiny prep sinks measuring at 12-18”, all the way up to massive 36” apron front sinks that make a bold design statement. By far the most common sink is the 33" Farmhouse sink.
You can also find many of their farmhouse sinks in both single and double bowl styles, so you’ll have no problem selecting the ideal layout for your kitchen at the ideal size. While many fireclay sinks often have size variances due to the firing process, all of Bocchi’s fireclay sinks have exact measurements, making it easy to order custom cabinetry and install. You can also select between undermount or apron front fireclay sinks, allowing you to either make your sink a seamless addition to your kitchen design or a starring focal point.

The Durability Of Bocchi Fireclay
Of course, durability is a key consideration when purchasing a fireclay sink. Bocchi sinks are manufactured in Turkey using a specialized high-pressure casting system. Organic, natural, and recyclable clay is fired at temperatures of up to 2000°, resulting in a smooth and extremely resilient non-porous surface that is harder than rock. This stone-like surface will resist chips, scratches, dents, and damage, even with regular heavy-duty use. As a brand that truly stands behind its products, Bocchi even offers a free limited lifetime warranty to provide ultimate peace of mind. You can register your Bocchi products here.

Easy Maintenance of Bocchi Sinks
You’ll also enjoy easy maintenance with your Bocchi fireclay farmhouse sink. This innovative brand incorporates its signature Clean Plus+ technology in all of their sinks, ensuring each sink will always look brilliant, shiny, and new. The contact angle of their ceramic glaze has a hydrophobic effect, helping to prevent lime remains calcium deposits, stains, spots, dirt, and other buildups. Plus, fireclay is naturally antimicrobial for added hygiene benefits, and being fired under such high temperatures makes it heat-resistant as well. The use of mild cleaners and a simple wipe down after use are all that’s needed to maintain the life and luster of your farmhouse sink for years to come.

Protect Your Fireclay Sink With FREE Grid
All Bocchi sinks include a complimentary removable sink grid that’s customized to their various sink sizes. This sink grid/strainer has multiple functions, including minimizing wear and tear on your sink’s basin, protecting glasses and fine china from shattering against your sink’s strong surface, and doubling as a discreet drying rack once you’re done cleaning. You can also purchase coordinating Bocchi sink accessories, like colanders or cutting boards, to make your sink an all-in-one meal prep station. Plus, Bocchi sinks easily accommodate a garbage disposal and do not require an extended flange, making them suitable for homeowners who want a classic look without forgoing modern amenities.
Bocchi Farmhouse Sink With Faucets
Bocchi considers the total package when it comes to their kitchen fixtures, and that means expertly designed faucets are available too. These coordinating faucets come in side spray, pull-down, and pull-out styles in both contemporary and classic profiles. Much like their sinks, Bocchi offers plenty of design choices with their faucets, including three finishes – polished chrome, oil rubbed bronze, and brushed nickel. And their chrome-finished faucets even come with a limited lifetime warranty.
Every Bocchi faucet features an eco-friendly aerator that reduces water consumption and meets CalGreen requirements. Made from lead-free brass, their faucets are built to withstand impact while looking stunning for many years to come, and of course, performing perfectly. You can even find matching soap dispensers in the same finishes to help minimize countertop clutter and create a polished look for your fireclay sink installation.
