We just had a stainless steel sink installed with granite counters, and the sink has an awful odor. It was made in China and smells like a rubber chemical or something. I can't get rid of the smell. Any ideas on what to do?

It is the use of inferior padding on the sink ( sound deadening). There is a company that sells the padding to replace this and rid yourself of the smell. mysinkstinks.com check it out this will solve your odor problem. The inferior pads are loaded with petroleum and when you run hot water it will even get worse, that is the chemical smell you are getting.
