Don't ever expect your under the counter sink to hold a sinkful of water unless you are certain it has enough support for that. Hatzolah has calls every year for people burned when the sink they are kashering collapses and boiling hot water bursts all over the place.
Also, this IS a sink full of water and not just a pot of soup if you are using a sinkful of water to cool down your pot.

I've always had this fear of leaving large pots with water in the under the counter sink which is just pinned and glued, good to hear those fears weren't unsubstantiated.

In defence of @HudZ I've filled many sinks with water without an issue and never thought it may be a problem
now that you point it out I do see how it could be an issue in certain instilations.
Also many many people underestimate the weight of a given volume of water

(maybe he shouldnt have doubled down on theory when other posters stated as known fact lehepich, but thats an old issue with yeshivish shmoozing)

It is possible that Israeli pocalian sinks are installed differently than the standard American stainless steel installation.

Over the counter sinks at least spreads the weight on the counters/cabinets, vs under the counter.

Also many many people underestimate the weight of a given volume of water
People gotta be cautious as well with making pools for the kids on porches and rooftops. We were told by the architect roughly which pool size can be done at what area on the rooftop to be safe.

Bottom line: Be careful.

my standard size sink is 16x20.5x9 it holds 12.75 gallons which is 105 lbs
my entire set of china (service for 12), which will not fit in my sink at once, is about 43 pounds.

My undermount sink started separating from the counter a while back, and I used the kit below to lift it back into place after adding epoxy. I left it in there for extra support afterwards. If one does fill their sink despite the warnings here, I imagine installing something like that is better than nothing.

Obviously it's only as solid as whatever cabinet wall you screw it in, but it's better than nothing. If you're really concerned you can probably use some wood to build a proper support once the sink is mounted.

(Warning: be mindful of the thickness of your cabinet wall when choosing screws.)

Schroedinger's sink

Seriously, you think in over 20 years in the US I only had access to make mischiefhelp in ONE sink?

(My parents have twoish kitchens, one has a sink mounted over the counters, the other has them mounted under the counters.)

I thought the issue with filling sinks was with boiling water as it melts the glue?

Does anyone know if La Choy teriyaki sauce & marinade has been discontinued? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
