Constructed through a proprietary manufacturing process that combines natural quartz with high performance, these sinks are as strong as they are stylish. The nonporous quartz material is also credited to preventing the spread of bacteria. Compatible with Elkay's Perfect Drain, which eliminates the gap around the drain for a cleaner sink - no gap means no grime. Elkay has the largest selection of quartz colors on the market, recently adding the newest color addition - Mint Crème (launched in summer 2020). The fresh mint green has delectable creamy undertones that bring serenity to the home, while capturing the coolness of nature.

It also includes the Smart Water Detectors, which are standalone sensors that can be placed anywhere in a house to alert users if, and when, the sensor detects moisture to help prevent water damage and loss.
