Customer Reviews

Bigger, better, perfect fit.Ok this is a really good grid, much better than the old plastic covered one we had, it fits the sink much better, is uncovered stainless, no plastic which degrades and burns with hot pans, bigger gauge stainless, better made, bigger feet protectors and this one has side bumpers which protect the sides of the sink. Overall a much better product. These things are expensive but I could say this is almost a good value vs the old grid. P.S. the picture they show is the old grid, same as what we had. The picture is probably the PR-31 that we've all been buying as the PR-36 all these years. the newer grid is shaped exactly to the sink, you'll be much happier with the new grid. Our sink by the way is the Franke PRX 160 and it fits it perfectly.Edit: The picture of the grid has been updated so it's now the proper picture of the one being sold.5Better than the last model Improvements made on this grid iwere much needed. The prior grid wires were plastic coated. Eventually the plastic would split and it would get very nasty under the plastic. They have done away with the plastic. The grid is completely metal and it has plastic clips on the edges to protect it against scratching the sink. Would definately recommend this to protect your sink. 5Finally, I know what the ledge is forWe purchased a home with the Franke Prestige 36" offset double bowl PRX120 in the kitchen. I ordered this PR-31S grid drainer shelf grid. It rests on the ledge, it can be used as a drying dish rack, or as a clean prep surface (provided you clean it) for times such as when washing fruit or lettuces leaves (when you pull off a leaf, wash the collected farm dirt at the roots, lay the cleaned one down and reach for another). I like the shelf grid. My husband thinks it's silly. For retail $139 it is kinda skip-able, but I got it new for $32.36 (Amazon Warehouse deal) and I like it much.5Franke now sells the stainless steel version and at a reasonable price - saving the headache of having to consider the removal oMy original Franke sink grid was vinyl-coated steel. This was replaced with a chromed steel version from Franke as they did not offer a stainless steel version. Surprise, surprise. Franke now sells the stainless steel version and at a reasonable price - saving the headache of having to consider the removal of the nice Franke sink and possibly the Corian countertop. Bought two of them as the Franke quartz composite sink is now going on 25+ years old. The new grid makes it look brand new.5Overall Significantly Better Than the Earlier Vinyl Coated Version, But Has Some Annoying DrawbacksAfter reading other reviews, I thought long and hard about purchasing this Stainless Steel shelf grid replacement for our 10 year old sink. Ultimately we have been glad we did, because of the significant overall benefits over the previous vinyl coated version. However, the Cons noted below are a constant annoyance, so consider them before your purchase.Pros: The Stainless Steel is much easier to clean, will not get moldy, and you can put hot pans and liquids onto it immediately without worrying about damaging the coating. It looks great, and fit our 10 year old sink perfectly.Cons: - The individual rods are thicker by 1/64" (12/64" vs 11/64") and are further apart by 1/4" in each dimension (1-1/2" vs 1-1/4") and almost 1/3" on the diagonal. As a consequence, glasses, cups, and other small objects are unstable unless carefully rested on only the top rods; and smaller items like silverware, bottle caps, and small dish rags fall through noticeably more frequently than they did before. - The lack of a vinyl covering results in more clinking noises when objects are put into the sink.In our opinion, the benefits of the Pros significantly outweigh the annoyances from the Cons. However, Franke could have eliminated virtually all of the cons by using the same gauge and grid spacing as the original but just switching to stainless steel without the vinyl coating. As a result, I deducted one star.4Fits perfectly!Never know when you buy a replacement grill for a 20-year old sink that it'll fit exactly and this one does! Also comes with 4 little gripper things (don't know if they should be removed, but I didn't) that help it fit the sink securely. I like the fact that it is NOT covered with plastic, which would discolor over time. Would buy it again, but it looks like I won't need to for another 20 years. Goes in the dishwasher once a week, too. Hated to spend the nearly $100, but it was money well spent.5For a change, better than expectedFor 8 years, we had what we thought was the coated version (PR36C) of this grid. However, what we got when we ordered the uncoated stainless version (PR36S) is not the same size or heft as our old one. Similarly, the picture that accompanies this ad is not shaped like that which we received; it looks like our old one (which I now suspect was a PR31C). All that being said, what we just received is larger, is a perfect fit to our PRX-160 sink - extending to all four walls - and of a far more substantial guage of stainless wire.Time will tell whether an uncoated grid is less of a headache than coated, but I expect so. The coated versions get disgusting after a couple of years - pinpoint holes allowing water and food to accumulate and turn brown under the coating. At these kind of prices, it is not something you want to replace every couple of years. Unlike the coated versions, I expect that I should be able to either hand-scrub or dishwasher the raw stainless.Bottom line: a far more attractive and sturdy tool for the sink bottom than we have ever had.5Uncoated Sink Grid, FrankeReplaced the original grid, which was coated, with this one which is not coated for long term use w/o having to worry about the plastic coating melting or wearing. Overall I'm happy however the first grid shipped from Amazon was defective in that it was warped and wouldn't sit even in the sink, it would wobble. The second one sent by Amazon was fine w/ the exception of some minor marks but nothing I can't live with, such is the draw back of not being able to inspect products in person prior to purchase. This grid fits better then the original in that it is slightly longer by an inch or so covering the sink more completely. The lack of coating is noticeable when placing dishes and stuff in the sink, it makes more noise w/o the coating. The grid has 'feet' that are more spaced out then on the original which makes it a bit more stable, slightly, when items are placed on the grid away from it's center and towards the edges. The thickness of the grid in terms of gauge is more substantial.Pros; fits better, should be more robust then the coated grid, heavier gauge, slightly more stable then original grid.Cons; uncoated isn't as quiet when placing items onto it, coated finish (when new) looks nicer (subjective), pricey.4I've Used BothThis is the first time I have ordered the uncoated stainless steel version of this product and I can honestly now explain the differences as well as MY preferences. I did speak to a telephone product specialist at Franke and she explained to me that most people who do a lot of cooking, especially pouring out boiling water in the sink and then placing hot pots and pans down on it; then this is the grid for you. If you don't cook all that much but have very fine china then you are probably better off with the coated version. As for me, I've been through three of the coated grids and they all needed to be replaced every couple of years. I've only had this one for a few weeks, but it seems to be much easier to maintain and clean. It also fits my sink much better from corner to corner. I have not experienced the issues with things sliding around easier on this grid as previous reviewers have stated , and the silverware gets stuck under both the coated and the uncoated grids, so no real issue there either. I will be using the uncoated stainless if I ever need to replace the grid again. I like this one much better.5The good, the bad and the uglyHaving replaced the prior version twice as the coating became impossible to clean, I was happy to see the newest version was uncoated. I saw some reviews mentioned the squares were bigger but didnt' think much of it. Big mistake. The good? It's really strong, easy to clean and fits perfectly. The bad? Somewhere in the redesign, they made the squares larger, enough that things don't balance well, glasses tip and silverware constantly falls through. I've had this for almost 8 months now and actually regret the purchase because I spend up to 5 minutes every single day picking everything up that gets caught through the squares, under the rack, falls into the drain, etc. Five minutes might not sound like much but it's already almost 20 hours just picking up silverware and glasses and I haven't even had it a year. So, my redesign suggestion would be absolutely keep the uncoated finish but please, please go back to the smaller square design. It would be perfect then. And no, there's no ugly, it really is nice and shiny. I just wish it were more practical.3Wish I had bought this soonerTwenty years ago I purchased a white Franke sink with a White grid. After a few years, the grid got old looking, and I replaced it with the Coated stainless grid. The coating recently started to show its age. It had cut marks on it, and even a run through the dishwasher did not bring it back to life. So, I recently purchased this Uncoated grid. I love it! If I had bought it last time, I would have saved a lot of money......these grids are costly! This Uncoated grid can be washed, and brought back to life, in the dishwasher, and it can withstand a hot pot. In the past I was afraid that someone would unknowingly put a hot pot on the coated grid and melt it. This Uncoated grid should last a long, long time.BTW: This new grid comes with 4 small pieces of clear tubing on the side edges. Because my sink is white, I need to leave these on to prevent the grid from leaving dark marks. If I had a stainless sink, I would probably be able to discard them.5
