This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in October of 2016. Make washing hands or dishes easy and convenient by installing one of these built-in soap dispensers in your kitchen or bathroom. Available in a wide range of designs to match any decor scheme, from minimalist modern to classically elegant, they're more handsome than the plastic bottles that typically clutter countertops and not as expensive or difficult to install as you may think. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 18, 2020:

After some consideration, we have removed the Ultimate Kitchen Extension Tube at this time. In theory, it's a helpful model that extends time between refills, but the installation can be tough to get right, so it's not for everyone. But we kept the Krevare Soaptainer, a tool also designed to make constant refills unnecessary. You can fill it with a wide variety of dish soaps, but you'll need to provide your own pump.

Turning to standard choices, the Kimi Cuisine Brushed Nickel and the Kraus Modern still represent a good value. There's no tricky installation, and the styling is plain yet attractive, so they should complement a variety of kitchen faucets. For a choice that's a little more eye-catching, we added the Akicon Copper, a brass model with a handsome copper-colored finish. Or, there's the Fonveth Contemporary. It has square, angular styling and is offered in several colors, including a brushed gold.

Unfortunately, the Comllen Antique, the Commercial Cool Hand, and the Seafulee Solid all suffer from availability issues, so we removed them, despite their eye-catching designs. Not to worry, though, as we found several other attractive options for kitchens and bathrooms of varying decor schemes. For up-to-date sensibilities, we think the Kraus Modern and the Lazada Contemporary work well; neither is terribly pricey, and they're handsome but not gaudy. For options that would fit into more delicate styles, we selected the Delta Faucet Cassidy and the Avola Modern Oil Rubbed Bronze. Do note that although they both resemble metal, they're crafted from plastic. We also added a couple of options that are just a little different, including the Krevare Soaptainer and the Ultimate Kitchen Extension Tube. The latter comes with a pump while the former does not, but they're both designed to extend the time between refills. If you've got a large, bustling household, these are fine options to consider.

Special Honors

Sloan ESD-2000 The Sloan ESD-2000 is a simple, automatic choice that comes in several handsome finishes, including polished brass, brushed nickel, and graphite. Each arrives with two soap refills to get you started, and the company offers faucets to match, so you can complete the look. sloan.com

Fontana Trio Commercial A touch-free option, the Fontana Trio Commercial conveniently allows you to adjust the amount of soap that's dispensed, starting at .5 milliliter and going up to 1.5 milliliters. Even better, it not only runs on batteries, but can be made to use an optional AC adapter, if so desired. fontanashowers.com
