What sort of kitchen sink should I get?

Single or double basin?
Stainless steel or enameled cast iron?
Self rimming or under mount?
Considerations are that we have a dishwasher and only really hand wash big/bulky items. New counters are going to be butcher block installed by us (likely with handy FIL help). Cabinets are white and so are appliances.
Current sink is old white enameled cast iron double basin and is being replaced because the surround has stupid contours on it and you can't really set anything there and neither basin is large enough to wash big pots/pans. I like the white, get annoyed by breaking dishes because of the hardness.
I am leaning towards single basin white cast iron
. Husband prefers double basin. Should I consider stainless steel? Will under mount be difficult to do with butcher block counters?
