The 5 Best Plastic Drip & Drain Pans (Ratings/Reviews)

It’s no surprise that the vast majority of drip and drain pans - or trays, as they’re commonly referred to - are made from plastic materials.

Plastic is light-weight, easy to store and ship, and sold at incredibly low prices. Because of this, there are dozens of options for consumers that are looking for an inexpensive spill containment solution.

Available with or without a drain hole, these pans and trays are intended to catch and divert spills from washing machines, water heaters, ice makers, refrigerators, and other home or commercial appliances. Other common uses for plastic drip & drain pans include collecting oil and transmission fluids in automotive applications and catching excess condensate produced within HVAC units.

For temporary spill containment and low-stakes leak prevention, plastic trays are a great option. Any type of protection from appliance leaks is wise, and plastic pans are certainly going to be the cheapest option when compared to pans made from stainless steel, galvanized steel, or aluminum.

Before making a decision on which type of plastic pan to buy for your particular application, check out our list of the five best companies to buy a plastic drip or drain tray from:
