Many of the sink mats did not have a center hole. I really like that you can drain the water without having to take out the mat. Nice subtle color for our new stainless steel sink. My husband thinks it shifts around too much. I don't see the problem - but I'm not the dishwasher.

I like the product but like so many of your other customers the holes do not line up with where the sink holes are on my sink. Also I have one extra large deep sink on one side and on the other side just a regular size. I had to buy three mats and cut one smaller just to cover the bottom of the large sink. The old sink mats I had were solid with a few holes in them. With the old mats (which were not Rubbermaid) if you didn't line up the faucet with the drain hole the water would splatter and make a horrible mess. These Rubbermaid mats are wonderful in that they don't do that. I see some of these critiques date back 4 & 5 years ago. You guys have done nothing to change or add to your product line. I know that Rubbermaid is a huge company and household consumption is not where you make the most of your money but I think if you had someone really sharp in charge of your household product line you could really increase your profits in that area. We don't think you are listening when there are no changes so seeing some changes would go a long way in making we household consumers believe in the Rubbermaid company that we grew up with. Women will spend a lot to make life easier in the kitchen. I see so many areas where there are no products even being designed within any company to meet areas of organization and ease for the kitchen. Thank you

Status Update--Much Better!

By alizax2

from Los Angeles

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I wrote earlier that I didn't like this product. I had to get a new one because the old one was so stained and didn't bleach. But this one doesn't seem to stain or it bleaches (my housekeeper). Don't know if they changed it or I reviewed the wrong product the first time! I've had it for over a month and no stains--at all! Thanks, Rubbermaid!

After 2 years Im ready to buy the third mat

By edys

from Miami, Florida, Estados Unidos

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I bought 2 white mats in LOWES of FL. I'm replacing one bs I exposed it to a hot pot and got a little bit burn. But in two years of continue used and wash in the dishwasher I only notice some little change of color on one. OH and it fit perfect in my double sink.

They Stink!

By SusanaB

from Florida

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

These racks don't support the dishes, they bend so that the plastic remains in contact with the sink, thus the dirty water. They get molded quickly unless you put them upright to dry each time. They have little tiny legs that are supposed to support them, but they don't even reach the sink bottom. I want the old ones that are made of strong wire. I will return these tomorrow. Don't buy them.

Drain hole in wrong place all the time

By grand

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I have remodeled many house and I always seem to pick the name brand kitchen sinks that NEVER have the drain in the middle of the sink. How hard would it be for Rubbermaid to make mats that have a drain hole at one end of the mat? You used to have cut-outs for the holes but I can't find any. How about it Rubbermaid?

Works fine for us; we just wanted more info ...

By DK95959

from Nevada City, CA, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I'm surprised at the negative reviews. I guess it does fit my expectations. Anyway, all I am looking for on the website, and not finding, is whether or not it can be cleaned in the top dishwasher rack. Could Rubbermaid answer me?

Hate it.

By Agnes2923

from New Hampshire, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I bought this about 4 months ago and it doesn't fit my sink like the other model. Everything angles towards the center hole and wants to fall in, all food gets stuck under it and won't wash down the drain at all. I like the original wire framed one. It fits my sink much better. It makes a flat surface for the bowls to sit on and not dump over if you need it to soak for a while.

By ladybug2000

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

This is the best protector I have ever owned. Had for years! I now have a new style sink with the drain at center rear. PLEASE, PLEASE adapt for the new style sinks! It is dishwasher friendly, just need to take it out before the heated dry cycle.

Yuck!

By Robin17

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

These are surely not up to the standard of the old rubber mats I'm used to. I am not pleased with them, they don't do anything BUT protect the sink. They don't feel right, they stain easily and are difficult to clean. Bring back the classic sink mat! From the reviews I've read on the other style, I'm glad I only wasted my money on these and not on the others as well.

Garbage trap; hole hello

By faroe47

from Odessa, FL

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

I agree with all the other reviews that are critical of the mat's design. It is hard to clean and does nothing but trap waste. In my case, I need the hole placement at approx. 12 o'clock due to offset sink drain. Won't but another until the design allows effective cleaning.

what ever happened to the older one

Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

The hole is in the wrong location. You had a flat rubber one with a cut out hole in it, bring it back, companies always changing but not always for the better. thanks

      Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

      The cutout for the sink drain makes this an excellent product. Rather than trapping food particles it allows them to drain while protecting the bottom of the sink from scratches.

      Changed Product

      By kelly

      from WI

      Comments about Rubbermaid® Sink Protector:

      Earlier versions of this sink protector would be easily cleaned on the top rack of my dishwasher and come out flexible and able to lie flat in the sink bottom. The more recent product became stiff and misshaped when it came out of the dishwasher. What a disappointment. Fortunately, I was able to locate the old discolored one. I had thought Rubbermaid was a quality company that would not compromise on quality in their products...newer is not always better.
