Kudos to that designer.
I agree wholeheartedly! Two basins in one, plus a tray where you can set a drying rack, plus a rack for holding sponges and dish soap on the underside of the hinged glass lid, and it all stores inside the sink. Never mind my Airstream, I want one of these for my apartment kitchen! Not that my landlord would let me install one, though…

I think the single sink is to give some counter space in a very small galley kitchen.

We buy plastic bowls to wash in so as to conserve water use, and our small grey tanks.

One could use the sink, minus a dishpan of some sort, but water usage would differ as would one's ability to choose where the dishwater goes.

There is adequate cooking space in a small kitchen, if you just plan adequately. I have prepared hundreds of meals in mine, for years for a carnivore husband.

The small space is a choice, and some of us prefer it.

I actually love the single deep, round sink bowl-- it's big enough to rinse out my largest Dutch oven or the baking sheet/pan without splashing water all over the place. It's made me want a big farmhouse sink at home.

Thanks for the tip on the microfiber drying mat, SeaLevel-- I just ordered one. It will definitely come in handy when the dish washer is working at a faster pace than the dryer!

This drying rack has worked very well for us. It stores in the sink when not in use.

Don't know if I want to lose cupboard space, but everything I'm reading about the single drawer dishwashers used in some RV's, mention that unit ONLY uses 1.3 gallons of water for whole dishwashing cycle. Makes me wonder how many gallons I use just to wash and rinse same amount of dishes.....
