Are you aware of the micro pores in 3D prints? http://reprage.com/post/36869678168/is-3d-printed-pla-food-safe
So I'm not sure if this is much safer but I like the design anyway.

I'm totaly with you, that 3D-printed parts should not be used to contain any food.
In this Situation the Part normaly has no direct contact with any food you still want to eat.
And yes, there will be bacteria on this device, but in fact the sponge is the way bigger problem, and by letting the sponge dry faster the total amount of bacteria on sponge and spongeholder will be less than on the wet sponge itself.

Very interesting article, thanks a lot!

I believe I've read recommendations not to use anything re-usable to clean after cutting meat, but throw-away paper towels instead.

In the light of the above article, that seems to make a lot of sense!
