Washing dishes by hand accompanies us all and therefore there are a number of useful helpers. Because no matter whether a household has a dishwasher or not - not every dish should be put in the dishwasher, such as dishes with gold rim or hand-painted dishes. At the same time, under-cabinet washbasins without a draining board are becoming increasingly popular because of their clean look, so draining racks and mats are a practical addition to the sink and equally helpful for daily or sporadic washing up. They also have the advantage that they can be put away after washing up and the sink and work surface is spotless and tidy again.
On the one hand, there are draining racks (1), which should be placed on the existing draining surface of the sink if possible, and on the other hand there are racks (3 and 4) which already have an integrated installation surface. The latter are particularly practical for sinks without a draining board and are becoming increasingly popular.
Drainage mats (2), on the other hand, replace the draining board for sinks without it or extend it for sinks with too small a draining board.
Of course, draining racks and draining mats can also be combined, and many brands also offer the washing up aids as combination products - so you can freely choose what you need and even set colour accents.
Another useful addition for washing dishes by hand is a utensil container.
"With almost all kitchen aids, the decisive difference is in the detail. Additional functions, such as a drip tray or a flexible plate holder, are not absolutely necessary, but they do make washing up a little easier and faster afterwards." - Viktoria, interior design expert
No matter what the material - you can recognise a good drip grid by the fact that it has an anti-slip coating on the underside so that it lies firmly on wet surfaces and does not slip. Depending on the choice of material, your draining rack can also be given a unique design that will enhance your kitchen.
Starting with classic and elegant models made of stainless steel (2) and modern variants made of plastic (1) and rubber or silicone (4) to textile (microfibre) (3) , a wide variety of drip trays can be found. Unusual shapes, such as a round drip rack, or bright colours can provide a special accent in your kitchen.
"In order to benefit from your washing up aid for as long as possible, it is recommended that you also rinse the draining rack or mat occasionally and wipe it dry to avoid stubborn water stains and limescale deposits."
