Promising review: “This is a life changer. Seriously. I use it mostly to drain and dry dishes, pans, my NutriBullet container and anything else that i’m not putting into the dishwasher. It’s sturdy and easy to use. My biggest concern was keeping it clean. Since it is supposedly dishwasher safe (presumably on the top rack) that concern is solved. It’s also easy to rinse and it drys quickly if you stand it upright. No more water on the granite from draining dishes and the like. If I had to make a list of the 25 things I found on Amazon that were the most useful this rack would be one of them.” BMan
