Each sink has their own pros and cons.

Stainless steel is durable and easy to maintain, however their are not scratch resistant.

Granite is scratch resistant and nice but require extra care and cleaning.
You can try google on "how to clean granite sink" and many ugly photos of stained granite sinks will appear

I believe you have been using stainless steel for many years, do you have any problem with it? How is the maintenance and is it working upto date without any dents or leaks? I bliv the answer is no problem. So, if u wan a durable and ez to maintain sink, get stainless steel.

TO undermount a sink does not really mean to stick the sink under of the table. As long as table top is above the sink is called undermount. First, they will need to install the sink on the cabinet like top mount, then add a piece of plywood to make the table flush (same level) with the sink. THen only add the granite or quart top on it, making it undermount. So it can be done and it will down drop down.

how thick is your current old sink? Old design sinks are about 0.8mm, i believe it is still in good condition right?
1mm and 1.2mm is very good already, i think 3mm is lebih 1 haha. but it is upto your preference and budget, no harm getting thicker.

this is my best seller sink from HCE, this is the only sink that is big enough to fit a wok straight in. THe wok in this photo is a 40cm diameter wok. Most undermounts sinks length is 440mm to 450mm but this we specifically designed it to be extra large and custom made the size according to the wok size and also advise from contractors/carpenters, so that it could be installed on a standard 2ft kitchen top. If u really like granite sink, i do sell ELLECI and also HCE, best to drop by and have a look
