What is this on the cabinet in front of the sink in our new kitchen? The panel above the under sink doors has a drawer pull and when you pull on it it flips down 45 degrees revealing a rectangular tray. Does anyone know what the purpose of this thing is?

Wet sponge storage.

Yes, it’s just a hidey hole to keep your sponges in.

The cabinet may have originally been cut for a cook-top and that is part of a spill catch?

The guy who made your custom cabinets watched a log of old spy movies and wanted a secret hiding place for his treasure maps.

Some people like gadgetry things. I would do something like just because I could.

Nope, it’s sponge storage. They were all the rage back in the late ‘80’s and early ‘90’s. (My previous life was as a draftsman for custom cabinet manufacturers)

I was guessing the kitchen was no newer than say, 1975.

Storage for wet sponges, bottle brushes, and other icky utilitarian cleaning items you don’t want to leave in the sink. They make them out of plastic too.

It’s for sponges, little brushes, etc. All the little things that collect around the sink. (With a little dish in there, it’s also a good place for wedding rings.)

You’re a guy, aren’t you? :)

It's a secret place to hide in case the place is surrounded by hostile Indians. You know, Indians, a bunch of guys who will crash through your door waving tomahawks and then one of them sez, he sez, "'Allo. We are 'ere from Microsoft technical support. You may call me 'Bob'." But you know "Bob" isn't his real name.

Or it's for sponges. But I think it's to hide from outsourced technical support. Wish I had one.

My parents had one of those installed, but with a plastic drawer, when they got new cabinets in 1991.

They kept small screwdrivers and other tools in it that were handy around the house. I can’t imagine my mom putting a wet sponge in there with little air circulation. It would’ve given her the heebie-jeebies.

I don’t think a 1911 would fit. A great idea, though, you can see both doors from the kitchen sink.

We have a cook top with a spill catch. Not at all similar.

Lots of gadgets in this kitchen. There is a pull down knife rack under one upper cabinet and a cookbook stand under another upper cabinet. I love the appliance garage.

We have one of those under out sink.

Its a handy place for your wife to stash all kinds of crap, so that when you accidentally grab it while making coffee at 4 AM, it launches all kinds of stuff all over the kitchen floor that you have to find before you step on whatever it is in your bare feet.

Nail it shut. Use some Gorilla Glue too, just to be sure she can never open it.

“I can’t imagine my mom putting a wet sponge in there with little air circulation.”

See, it’s not just me. I have one of these little drawers too. But I don’t like putting the wet sponge in there.

So, I dry out the sponge, then put it in there, then have to take it out and wet it soon enough!

But, I can fit the stopper in there, so that’s good.

I like your folks’ idea of putting some little tools in there, maybe I’ll try that.

Don’t forget to put the garbage disposal tool that you can never find when you need it in there, too.
