The Franke customer service department often gets calls from consumers asking how they can accessorize their Franke sink to maximize their work space.
We are here to help! Take a look at the catalog of photos below to illustrate just how these accessories work to make your life in the kitchen easier and more enjoyable.
1. Franke Roller Mat – a crowd favorite!

The roller mat has been a customer favorite since its launch and can fit a number of Franke sinks . This is not just visually attractive, but above all a thoroughly practical accessory. The metal rods of this roller mat are held together by a durable rubber material and makes a useful drainer on the sink, and also serve on the work surface or on the dining table. When placed properly it can withstand up to 40 pounds of weight! After use, the mat can simply be rolled up and stowed away in any cupboard.
2. Franke custom shelf and bottom grids

Top or ‘shelf’ grids add ease of food preparation and ergonomically raises your work area up to take the strain off of your lower back when lifting heavy items. The shelf grid utilizes Franke’s integral ledge and acts as a resting place for your grid. The grids also work well to help air dry your fine crystal, silverware or even thaw meats for preparation.
Bottom sink grids ensure that you get to showcase the beauty of your new Franke sink for years to come. Such grids will prevent scratches from marking up the bottom of your sink.

The bottom grid also provides elevation above the bottom of the sink. We understand that you are cooking with costly and substantial cookware, often times equating to heavier weights. Franke grids are engineered to withstand 40lbs of pressure at any point without moving or bending.
3. Cutting boards

Franke’s iroko wood cutting boards have been referred to as “jewelry for the sink”, aside from their fundamental purpose. With custom fitted cutting boards, you can virtually create additional counter space and can even make unwashed dishes disappear!

With so many uses, you can rinse, drain, defrost, strain, air-dry silverware, etc, why wouldn’t you want a colander for your work space?
5. Countertop Waste bin
This customer installation is one of our favorites! Along with the colander and cutting board used in the Franke Peak sink, to the left are two waste bins installed. The stainless steel lids with handle stops odors and provides an added convenience near the sink to dispose of waste materials . The bins have a removable synthetic or stainless steel container.
Franke custom sink accessories are highly functional and space efficient; packing a great deal of utility into a relatively small space.
