The Cadillac of Dish Racks

After Cambria’s great post yesterday on the best (and worst) things she has ever bought for her kitchen, I had to give a separate spotlight to this dish rack, which belongs firmly on her best list.

This sturdy, long-lived dish rack is a splurge at $80, but Cambria feels it was worth every penny. When you don’t have a dishwasher and wash a lot of dishes by hand, it’s worth it to have a handsome, spacious dish rack to hold all your gear.

I tended to wash dishes in big loads, and then pile everything in precarious piles on the dish rack to dry. Needless to say, most dish racks couldn’t take the pressure. Finally, I stopped wasting money replacing these cheap wooden dish racks with more cheap dish racks, and decided to splurge once and for all on the Mercedes of dish racks. It was large, super sturdy, and easy on the eyes — a plus since I kept it out on the countertop at all times. – Cambria

She also lauds the warranty, which lasts for five years. When her dish spout broke on the similar model of dish rack she had had for three years, simplehuman just replaced it with this one.

Do you have this dish rack? Or another that gives you similar strong feelings of satisfaction?
