For Smarter Hydration
Celebrating 101 Years of Kitchen Innovation...
Fueled by culinary curiosity and our burning need for easy solutions and good aesthetics, kitchen design has come a long way since Elkay started in 1920. We’ve been family owned and committed to innovation for a century and counting!

The Dual-Bowl Sink
Elkay releases its dual-bowl sink dubbed the Hitchcock, a top-of-the-line washbasin made by hand that was offered in either German nickel and silver (for $700) or copper (for $900).
The Cocktail Center
At a time when happy hour’s popularity hit new highs, Elkay makes it even more fabulous with its Cocktail Center, a blending, mixing and washing station with a built-in sink. Frank Sinatra would definitely approve.
The Lustertone Sink
Elkay debuts its Lustertone line of sinks with an exclusive handcrafted finish that features the same linear grain found in high-end stainless steel appliances. A custom-built Lustertone sink is commissioned for the Farnsworth house in Plano, Ill., designed by Mies van der Rohe.
The Under-Sink Water Purifier
Nobody wants chlorine, sediment or unexpected scents in their drinking water. It’s Elkay to the rescue with a new “quick change” under-sink water purifier. The tagline? “Enjoy bottled-water quality.”
The Perfect Drain®
Elkay introduces the edgeless design of Perfect Drain®, which gives sinks a seamless look and feel. This innovation eliminates the collar around the drain, which keeps the sink cleaner and gives food one place to go: down the drain.
The Colorful Quartz Sinks
Who says a sink has to be stainless steel or porcelain? Elkay’s colorful quartz sinks quickly become beloved by adventurous designers for showstopping hues such as Maraschino, Bisque and Mocha.
The ezH2O® Liv™ Built-in Filtered Water Dispenser
With our bottle filling stations increasingly common in offices, gyms, airports and schools, Elkay decides to bring that same convenience and quality to the home. The ezH2O® Liv™ is the first built-in filtered water dispenser engineered for the home. It’s designed to look beyond the kitchen and seamlessly fit any space water is needed.
