Do you have a soap dispenser at your prep sink?

Kristen HallockMay 10, 2013

Title says it all. I plan to buy a soap dispenser for my main sink and I think for my prep sink too. I assume I will need soap there, right? I've never had a prep sink before.

Do you have a soap dispenser at your prep sink?

Yes. I use hand soap in both. I would be lost without it at the prep sink as I wash my hands there more than at the cleanup sink.

Not yet, but I will (as soon as I pick a faucet). Can't imagine my life w/o it. :-)

Would not function without. I'm a modernist and like built-in simplicity. Not one more thing loosy-goosey on the counter or sink-side. I tend to overfill and get pissy when i put the plunger back in and soap oozes...so i use a chopstick and check as i fill like checking oil in a car. haha, it worked the last time i filled. (seems about every three weeks)
These are super nail brushes used in hospitals. Plain and simple and at every one of my sinks.
Go right in the dishwasher when i need to. Great for gardeners.

No. We don't wash our hands there.

Yes. I haven't finished the remodel, so I haven't used it yet. It is for dish soap, not hand (same as the main sink), but will also be used for hands I'm sure.

Absolutely! Hand soap in both dispensers at prep and clean up sink. The whole family uses them daily.

I have hand soap at the prep sink and dish soap at the main sink. The prep sink is where I usually wash my hands, but I can wash them with dish soap if I happen to be at the other sink,

I do. It supports my prep space where I handle produce and meats as well as my baking area where I handle butter, eggs, doughs, etc. If I only had produce, it might not matter so much, but with all we do there, I definitely wash my hands there -- more often than at the cleanup sink and my kitchen wouldn't work without that ability. The island space is also less conducive to having a soap bottle on the counter, so I think it's even more important at the prep sink than at the clean up sink [but I'm not giving up either ;-) ].

Have it now, but not planning to have it in the new remodeled kitchen. Reason: 1) Never know when it's empty 2) very difficult to tell fill level when refilling and makes a mess.

Yes! I find it very useful at both sinks. At my prep sink, I am putting dishes together including those with meats, fishes, etc, so I think it's vital to clean my hands immediately after touching them. I am very happy I have one and consider it necessary to my way of cooking.

Meisocal--You need a NeverMT. It's a tubing system that connects your soap dispenser to any size container of soap of your choosing underneath the sink. My prep sink NeverMT is connected to a Costco-sized liquid hand soap container that wasn't quite full when I installed it. Its been 18 months of very heavy kitchen use, and there's still a couple inches of soap in the container. Love not having to refill the small soap jar that comes with the soap dispenser!
