A twist and turn, or a lift and turn feature a small nob to manually lift the drain cover. Simply press and seal the drain. They are opened and closed by pressing down on the drain cover and “twisting” it.
Drains with strainers are used commonly in bar sinks or workstation sinks that don’t have a function for closing as the grid allows water to flow easily through the drain while blocking larger items such as food or crumbs.
Chain and plug drains are manually operated by plugging and removing the drain’s stopper. These usually come included with a small basket or “crumb cup” to keep unwanted items or food from falling into the drain.
A simple yet essential component, once you get one you won’t want to go back! Sink grids are racks that fit into the basin of your sink and help protect it from possible scratches, chips, dents, or other damage. They help increase easy drainage and can also be utilized as a sink rack. Sink grids are popular in commercial and prep sinks because they make washing foods such as fruits and veggies extra easy.

What kind of sink drains are there?
CopperSmith offers a number of options for drains including 4 popular styles. A press and seal drain, also called a pop-up drain is some of the most commonly sold drains here at CopperSmith. They are very easy to both operate and install, and are activated by a pop-up mechanism by simply pressing down on the drain cover.
A twist and turn, also called a lift and turn features a small nob to manually lift the drain cover. Simply press and seal the drain, which is also very easy to install. Twist and turn drains do not feature “below the counter” mechanisms as some other drains do. They are opened and closed by pressing down on the drain cover and “twisting” it.
Drains with strainers are used commonly in bar sinks or workstation sinks that don’t have a function for closing. The grid on the drain cover allows water to flow easily through the drain while blocking larger items such as food and crumbs from actually getting into it.
Lastly, chain and plug drains are manually operated by plugging and removing the drain’s stopper. These usually come included with a small basket or “crumb cup” to keep unwanted items or food from falling into the drain.
What is a sink grid?
Sink grids are racks that fit into the basin of your sink. This helps protect your sink from possible scratches, chips, dents, or other damage. They help increase easy drainage and can also be utilized as a sink rack. Sink grids are popular in commercial and prep sinks because they make washing foods such as fruits and veggies extra easy. They are also quite easy to clean as they only require popping the grid out from the sink and many are even dishwasher safe here at CopperSmith.
Should I get a garbage disposal?
Garbage disposals are a great investment to make especially in your kitchen sink. These allow easy clean-up of food and help maximize time cleaning up in the kitchen. Although they tend to be pricier and can make your sink installation harder to install, they are worth it in the long run.
What material of sink drain is the best?
Chrome and copper are some of the best materials for drains due to the rust prevention and durability. Drains are often emerged or covered in water so having a metal that is prone to tarnish and rust is important. Copper and chrome drains are also easier to clean making it more convenient for wiping up food crumbs and other unwanted messes.
What sink accessories are essential to have?
One of the most essential accessories to a sink is the faucet! This allows water flow and is probably the most important part of the sink itself. Other accessories that are pretty necessary include a drain and handles for temperate control.
What size sink drain do I need?
The size of your drain will depend on the measurements between one side of the drain opening in your sink to the other side. These are on average about 3 ½” wide. But can range anywhere from 1 ½” to 4”. Bar sinks and prep sinks tend to have smaller drains, while the commercial kitchen and larger sinks have larger drains. In general, drains for the kitchen tend to be a bit larger and more advanced than bathroom drains as they are filtering out more in the water.
What accessories come with a workstation sink?
While there are tons of features and levels of accessories that one can choose to customize their workstation sink. The most common included accessories that come with workstation sinks are drying racks, colanders, a cutting board, and a bottom grid. A bottom grid made of stainless steel fits nicely in the bottom of the sink to organize dishes without getting residue everywhere. Most of the accessories sit fitted into the space that drops into the sink on an integrated ledge. This is great for maximizing space and having a more organized cleaning and cooking process.
