Has anyone had any problems with the lettering on the storage case fading onto your hands? In other words, after two or three times of placing the sink back into the case, the letters and words on the front (top) of the case are smudged and almost unrecognizable. Yep, my hands were clean. I just wonder if they will fade onto my clothing once packed. I guess I could put the whole thing into a plastic bag, but I wouldn't think that a new product would fade like this on the first day. I travel for weeks and months at a time and the sink will go into the same large bag as my Ex-officio shirts and pants. Just bought it this afternoon -
Since it's apparently some sort of "defect", you could simply return it. On the other hand, maybe a trip to the actual kitchen sink along with a scrubby sponge and some dish soap to just remove the remaining lettering residue is in order. The lettering/logo is pretty inconsequential in how the product performs overall. That's what I would do, for what it's worth. Hope this helps.
Does the job, less space
Took this on the Chilkoot trail, if you beleive in LNT camping as I do, this makes it a lot easier to not have dish water everywhere. In reality for short hikes you can probably deal with just licking your plate clean, but for long hikes this is really handy
Great little sink, been using (one) as a washing basen on my excursions and the other for my dishes. holds alot more water then I expected. Both folds up great to save on space. thinking of sending for the 5L sink for my backpack....
Packs small,making room for other items. not only in my backpack but also in my basecamp cooking gear box. will do another review once I've used it for awhile, Ordered(2)10L sinks..
Would recommend washing the sink out before using it....
Great product - folds to about 6" diameter 2" thick

Great water holder thingy!
I bought the 20L size and have tested it out once since I purchased it. This thing holds ALOT of water (about 5 gallons). I plan on using it for water filtering, washing dishes, and getting friends wet who decide to sleep in when we are camping... It folds down into a really tight and compact case so you can store it easily. I highly recommend it!
Great item to bring water to your kitchen or use to fill your hydration packs.
I am going to buy a 2nd one for when i travel with my wife and kids. One clean water and the other to do the dishes as I rotate pots when cooking the family their dinners.
Great carry along
I have the 10L version for backpacking, and was thinking about getting the 5 L but im not sure if that would be wise since my small 2 person cooking pot just fits into the 10L.
This is a great item overall. Ive used it for washing dishes, bathing, doing laundry (long hikes and road trips), and even for keeping water handing to put out a camp fire.
Its madeof pretty durable material and havent had any punctures yet.
ive ditched the carrying case it comes with and recommend just shoving it into a coffee cup for storage. save a little weight.
This product functions just as stated in the description. Just used it on a backpacking trip in the high Uintas. The photo is about all you need. Its main selling point is the steel ring in the rim of the sink. I've seen the Granite Gear sink in action, and it fails in that it spills out water when full. Not this one. Nice work STS, great design. As you can see, the sink remains rigid when full of water, and as the water level gets lower it still will retain its shape. Genius. 10 liters was enough to pump all water for three people to cook with, rinse dishes, drink with, and at the end of the night was enough to extinguish the fire with. I also like that you don't need to do dishes directly in the river/lake and can keep food scraps out of the natural environment. 10 L is perfect for a small group, 20 L would be overkill. Highly recommended; you should pick one up for the function versus weight in your pack. Very much worth the weight for convenience for pumping water, dishes, etc.
I got the 10l model and it was about 4-5 inches in dia by 1.5 thick. After opening it up itwas HUGE. You could wash a crock pot (by rotating it) in this thing! I'm very pleased but may have to get the smaller one for water conservation

How do you fold the sink back into the back
Take the steel rim of the sink and wrap it into small circles, while compressing the sink. Think of wrapping a cable up, and it will become obvious how it fits back into the carrying case.
Couldn't ask more from it!
Used it every day on our canoe trip in the Boundry Waters!
Sea To Summit Kitchen Sink
The Sea To Summit Kitchen Sink is a convenient basin to wash your camping dishes in. The 10L size is plenty big and will do the job for everything except the largest of pans. It collapses into a carrying case with a little drain hole. This is a nice product for car camping and river trips.

Can you pour boiling water into these? Thanks!
Yes. We just did it this weekend and several times previously.
Please don't pour boiling water into the Kitchen Sinks! Water this hot can cause the seam tape to delaminate.
Always start with cold water in the Kitchen Sink and add hot water.

Versatile and Convenient
These things are great. I have two, the 5L for solo trips and the 10L for trips with the wife and friends. Their great for pumping water out of to keep your filter cleaner as well as washing dishes, bathing, water for your dog, etc. They don't spill water like older camp sinks though you need a relatively flat surface. You can also hang them from a tree or limb by the handles. They pack small and are lightweight. Great product and highly recommend.
