Quick advice needed - which kitchen sink?

Kitchen is being done as we speak. Builders put the new ceramic sink in and it looks lovely - except for the grey line where it got scraped.
Is this a problem with ceramic sinks? I didn't want stainless steel again because we have hard water and the limescale is so obvious on it. Would white plastic be better than ceramic or does it stain badly with tea etc?
I need to tell them today whether to replace it with the same or something different.
TIA.

I use CilitBang black mould spray in my china Belfast sink - seems to get of any scratches or stains ! Hope that helps !
Nb. The fitters should have a special rubber that gets rid of grey scratches ! Plumbers merchants might have them ?!

Composite kitchen sink, this type of sink is scratch, stain and heat resistant. Also very easy to maintain and available in different sizes, shapes and colours.

OR Go with Solid surface sink, Resistant to bacteria and mould.

Ceramic sinks get grey scrapes, but they bleach off very easily. I put my plug in, big squit of bleach in an inch or two of water. Swish round and leave for ten mins and sink looks like new.

Thanks downward. The kitchen's all done now and I really like the ceramic sink. Thanks for the tip.

I used astonish professional cream cleaner on my old ceramic sink it was great at getting rid of the grey scrape marks, and didn't damage my clothes

If the sink is scraped and marks (mould?) need to be cleaned off with bleach doesn't that mean that it is porous where the glaze is damaged and not hygienic? We have two ceramic butler's sinks, which are marked, scratched on the bottom, etc. and we're getting stainless steel when the kitchen is redone.
