The PlateScrape is proud to be 100% designed and manufactured in America. Food grade safe 6.12s nylon bristles line the inside of our FDA approved bucket. The PlateScrape is UL approved and our buckets and brackets have been carefully tooled and designed to last. The PlateScrape technology is patent pending and has been awarded the 2018 Safe, Clean Water Research Program, a grant by the Santa Clara Valley Water District.
