Just in case there’s a sink-shaped hole missing from your heart, there is now a TikTok account that reviews sinks. Yep, you read that right, and he does it in the most colourful way, with verbiage I’ve never even used in my Arts degree. About sinks. Get into it.
The account, which is aptly titled @sinkreviews, goes around to restaurants and communal sinks all over the shop and gives them a rating out of five ‘sinks’. During each review, classical music plays, and it has truly adjusted my perspective on the world of sinks.
“Using this sink feels like an event, with a sensual water flow, and a temperature knob that glides like ice, I can easily forgive the faucets for being a touch closer to the basin than I’d like,” says Sink Reviews in his recent review of the sinks at The Standard in Manhattan.

And this doesn’t even cover how incredibly sophisticated and well thought out the reviews are. In some of the TikTok videos, Sink Reviews will quote writers, use life philosophy, and get real deep into the geometry, structure and functionality of the sink.
There are even a few, like the sink at The Marlton Hotel in Manhattan, that I thought would get a shitty review based on how they first appear, but after watching the review, I am enraptured by how amazing it truly is upon closer inspection. I dunno, this man just has a way with words.

“In the words of Ada Louise Huxtable“, he begins his review of the Ba’sik in Brooklyn, “it’s impervious to the vicissitudes of changing tastes.”
“This rock-solid construction inspires confidence, and it’s deep angular basin is almost sculptural.”

I truly can listen to this man speak forever. Here are some more iconic reviews on his channel that I simply cannot get enough of.
