Under bench sinks look great because you can't see them (does that make sense?). There is nothing worse than a massive hunk of shiny stainless steel detracting from the beauty of natural stone.
You can get plastic drainer boards that can be hidden away when not in use. Alternatively you can get your stonemason to route drainer grooves into the bench itself. Do a search for Marquardt kitchens to see how they do their drainer grooves.

I love mine, think it looks great. Not having a drainer is not too much of a problem as long as you do most of your washing up in the dishwasher.
Like Renomart said you can get a drainer routed in the slab but I think it adds quite a bit to the cost. Probably worth it though.

I'm going for the Ceasar stone benchtops, under-bench sink and a couple of stainless steel draining trays.

I am going to have one in my new house too, no drainer doesn't bother me at all...

I have two round underbench sinks in a black granite benchtop and I love them. the look is so uncluttered without a big draining board. I have a round drainer that fits into one of the sinks and also a wooden cover that goes over the top.
