We'll never go back to using drop-in sinks again after installing an undermount in our kitchen. The number one reason? They are so much easier to clean. No flange on top of the counter that collects junk and muck. A few favorites for the kitchen and bath are listed and pictured here.

Of course, this is no easy swap-out. An undermount sink requires that you countertop be of a solid surface, like Corian, or stone. If you have an existing laminate countertop, it would have to be replaced for proper installation of an undermount design.

Steel Art sinks by Blanco are super cool and equally expensive.
