Review: Simplehuman Stainless Steel Sink Caddy

The simplehuman brand has always delivered high quality and dependable products from my experience, and, I’ve found no exception with their stainless sink caddy.

In this review, we’ll focus on the multi-compartment sink caddy, but there is also a slim sink caddy available that has many of the same great features in a more compact version.

Features of the simplehuman stainless sink caddy:

  • A vented bottom allows drain back into the sink, along with aiding airflow to promote drying of sponges and brushes.
  • The brush holder comfortably accommodates several grout, soft bristle, and detail cleaning tools. The silicon base is adjustable to suite varying brush lengths.
  • On the other side of the caddy is a double tray, which easily stores 4-6 common sized scrub pads. As typical quality Simplehuman design goes, the sponge and pad divider tray is removable to allow thorough cleaning of the caddy when needed.
  • An adjustable, and removable, nylon coated wire ledge hanger combines with the suction cups to create a secure, yet, mar free mounting system.
NOTE: Our featured image shows the wire ledge hanger removed to provide better access clearance to our wall hanging items in the utility closet, but has since been re-installed. The suction cups can only provide so much support on their own.
NOTE: simplehuman says “some stainless steel sinks have deep brushed lines. We recommend suction cup stickers that are designed to solve this issue. Please click here to find our suction cup stickers“.

When the suction cups stop sticking…

Made in USA suction cup with hook

When the suction cups finally fail to properly adhere, try the following to clean:

  1. Add a dab of dish soap with water
  2. Rub with finger
  3. Rinse
  4. Dry
  5. Get back to a debris free and tacky surface again

Over time suction cups will eventually flatten out and no longer provide the cupping shape needed for proper suction. If after cleaning, and you still have adhesion issues; simplehuman parts sells product replacement suction cups.

Another option is going to your local hardware or craft store (e.g. Michaels) with the existing suction cup to compare. Any medium size suction cup measuring 1.75″ in diameter should work.

**Shown: This – made in usa – direct replacement suction cup was purchased at Ace Hardware for $.99 each. The affixed metal hook easily slides off, leaving the suction cup knob to fit the sink caddy attachment as a perfect replacement.
