Glad I made the purchase for cleaned dishes
Love this!! Saves space and don't have to have a towel on my counters anymore
Love it, love it, love it. As some have commented, it's not huge, since it is made for small spaces. There are generally only two of us to clean up after, but that only means fewer dishes, not fewer cooking vessels. I have had no problem standing a 12.5" glass microwave turntable up in it on the far end of the top rack, with no worries of tipping, and I've put a round glass casserole dish (sitting flat), a medium-large saucepan (angled), and a good-size metal bowl (angled) on the bottom rack simultaneously. It's very sturdy. I have had no problem with the plastic trays sliding around, as some reviewers have complained - in fact, I have had to work at moving them.
A few tips: 1. The assembly instructions are tucked inside the stack of plastic trays. 2. Determine which way around you want your top plate rack facing before assembly. The spaces between the wires are narrower on one end of the rack than on the other. I took mine back apart and reassembled it after I realized that the fat spaces for my microwave tray would leave the tray in my way in the front. 3. The knife rack really is supposed to look like that. I briefly thought that the manufacturer had assembled it upside down. One reviewer complained about good knives flipping themselves out of the rack, but if you put the heavy knives near the ends of the rack, the end wires will hold them in place, and the wires keep you from skewering yourself on the knife blades. Hang onto your knives to make sure that they are stable before releasing them. 4. The utensil cup is tiny. I use it for the things that my husband couldn't seem to find in a larger utensil holder. 5. Some of our bowls don't stand up in the plate rack the way I'd like them to. I found that if you angle them so that they are in one space on one side, and a different space on the other side, they sit more upright. Experiment with what works for your dishes. 6. There is enough room to stand two mugs up opposite each other in the plate rack when you have the bottom rack full of pots and pans. 7. If you go to the manufacturer's website to register the dish rack for the warranty, use 304 as the Amazon order number. Using your order number from your Amazon purchase kicks it out.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase, and I would recommend it to others. It was on sale for $35.79 when I bought it, and it was well worth it. I am no longer dealing with items cascading from a conventional drying rack.
Perfect for a small space, but still holds a lot of dishes. It’s honestly the highest quality, most aesthetic dish rack I’ve ever had.
