Choosing a stainless steel sink for your kitchen will modernize the appearance of your entire room. The benefits of stainless steel are great, as well. Stainless steel does not rust and it is difficult to stain it with any substance. Taking care of your stainless steel sink is necessary to extend the beauty of your sink and in that, your kitchen.
There are a few different designs available for stainless steel sink protectors. Some are created in a grid pattern and others are more solid in construction. The function is to not scratch or ding the surface of the sink. You can also purchase rubberized sink protectors as well.
Types of Sink Protectors
The metal rack sink protector sits above the surface of the sink on small feet. Water flows through but if you toss your silver into the sink it will land on the protector instead of the sink, reducing the potential for dings. This rack version is easy to care for and sanitize.
Rubberized sink protectors come in different shapes and sizes. These attach to the base of the sink by either a static or suction cup. The rubberized sink protectors have the disadvantage of being porous, so they should be changed periodically to help eliminate collection of bacteria in the sink.
