Franke Rollamat – a must

These Franke Rollamats are soo good. Stainless steel they roll over the top of your sink so you can drain or put hot pots etc on them- they don’t even need to be over the sink- they are also a bonus with some sinks.  I can really recommend them as a great accessory for your kitchen.mat
