It’s a well-known fact in my family that I’m bad at doing the dishes. It’s not totally my fault—we don’t have a dishwasher, and our narrow bar glasses are difficult to scrub even with the use of dish brushes. As much as I’d love to splurge on an eco-friendly dishwasher, that’s just not in the budget right now—which is why I’m installing this miracle glass rinser instead.
What is a glass rinser?
A bar glass rinser is a motorized appliance that’s easily installed where the sink sprayer fits. Once set up, just add a small bit of dishwashing detergent to a glass, flip it upside down and press the mouth of the glass to the circular sprayer. Built-in jets blast powerful streams of water into the glass, loosening residue and providing a thorough cleaning.
Using a cup rinser significantly cuts down on a number of dishwashing mistakes. Say goodbye to unsightly streaks, residue and excess detergent that causes icky soap flakes and even illness. Along with the jets, each glass rinser also features blunt blades that rotate for extra power. Plus, the best glass rinsers—including the glass rinser I’m eyeing—have an outlet for the excess water to run directly into the sink.
How do you install a glass rinser?
While it might sound difficult to install, this cleaning essential is actually pretty simple to set up. Using 5/8″ and 7/8″ wrenches and a Phillips head screwdriver, DIYers can easily slide it right into the slot where the sink’s sprayer normally sits. All mounting accessories arrive along with the sprayer, including a water line that hooks up to the faucet supply line.
- Rust-free stainless steel construction
- Uses either the hot or cold water line
- Mounting accessories included
- Simple to install
- 10 powerful jets
- Doesn’t fit larger cups, like the Stanley Quencher
- Water can sometimes pool at the bottom of the sprayer
- Replaces the sink sprayer, so faucets without a built-in sprayer no longer have one
What Reviewers Say
“I HATE washing cups,” writes verified purchaser Will P. “Honestly, other than spoons, cups are my least favorite thing to wash. When I worked as a barista, I loved how easy it was to use one of these cup sprayers. While redoing my kitchen I knew that I had to have one for myself.
Now washing cups is as simple as a dab of soap, a quick run of the sponge around the edge and a few seconds of spraying from this product. For any kitchen, using this product is a NO BRAINER. The sleek brushed gold and black finish are perfect for my kitchen, and the color options provided should match any design you have.”
Where to Buy the Glass Rinser
