Draining Pleat / Drainboard

Draining Pleat
Draining Pleat

These years, a series of food-safety scandals have set the alarm bells ringing around the world. It has caused the people losing confidence to the food manufacture companies and increased their desire of cooking at home. People now are living in a small space of room. Cooking in a small amount of space makes it harder for cleaning afterwards. We figure out a solution product and “Draining Pleat” demonstrates to this issue successfully. Within the quality of folding and spreading, this product can easily be constructed. The idea of this product does not take any space of room, but also makes self-cleaning much faster.
