I am constantly looking for efficient dish drying racks, because I wash a lot of stuff by hand, and get sick of my entire counter being full of drying dishes. I couldn't wait to see how it worked, so on the morning of Thanksgiving I had my husband set it up.
It worked REALLY well! Firstly, I was washing mostly pots and pans, so I cannot speak to how many actual dishes it holds, but I can say that it held the weight of several very heavy pans with ease.
The finish is high shine chrome, and it's very stylish.
I love that it has hooks on the side, so you can hang big cooking utensils to dry.
It's also got plenty of sections, which allows a lot of storage without taking up much space. Sadly I didn't consider the built in cabinetry in my home, so I cannot stack plates on the top rack.
The only reason for 4 vs 5 stars: The side boxes are crazy small, which is one major draw back. No where near big enough to put silverwear in. Maybe 3-4 forks?
Overall, I'm really pleased with this purchase. It made me feel officially 'old' because I was so excited about a simple dish rack...but it's awesome!
