When we bought our house 2 years ago, I had very few requirements and having a dishwasher was one of them. I spend the pretty much the 8 years before that without a dishwasher, and I knew I was done with that! I actually don’t mind washing dishes by hand, and sometimes I feel like it’s even easier than loading it in the dishwasher, but after 8 years of doing all your dishes by hand, anyone would want it a little easier! The other problem with washing dishes by hand is that I could never find a dish drainer/rack that worked well. They all would work okay but then a month later would have pink mold on the base or in the holder where the silverware goes. The last thing anyone wants is mold where they dry their ‘clean’ silverware. Gross.
Now, even thought I have a dishwasher, it is still essential to have a dish drying rack. I have so many precious pots and pans that can’t be put in the dishwasher, and also tons of nice plates that I use while photographing food for Domestic Superhero posts. I don’t risk putting these items in the dishwasher; I always wash them by hand and let them dry.
When I heard about the Rubbermaid Deluxe Kitchen Drainer, I knew I had to try it. Not only is it spacious, but it also has Microban antimicrobial protection which protects from mold and mildew. The utensil space is HUGE so there is plenty of room for spatulas, whisks, knives, you name it! Then in the front there is a space for more delicate items such as wine glasses or baby bottles. It has a very wide open design, which allows for bigger things to fit on the tray as well. There can be a little hang off the sides, and you don’t have to worry about things not fitting into the rack. Another thing I love about this Rubbermaid Dish Rack is that it’s available at Target! I love shopping at Target!
