Dish rack

hobbess | Jul 29, 2010 12:44 AM

I'm looking for any recommendations for a new dish rack because with my current, wooden X-shaped dish rack, the nails or staples are coming loose where it looks like the dish rack will come apart any day and with it, all my dishes crashing down.

I don't really use a dish washer, so I'm more dependent than most on a dish rack and I can splurge more on a dish rack from all the money I've saved by not buying a dish washer. That is, assuming that it makes sense to pay more for a dish rack. I'm still shaking my head my head at the prices of today's dish racks, but if that's what it costs...

I'm looking for something sturdy, large enough to dry and store a fair amount of dishes, and deep enough for bowls and other such chinaware. Any other features I should look for?' I've seen stainless dish racks, but are there any advantages to that- will they be stronger than non-stainless? And, don't you have to worry about rust with those models?

It seems like the better dish racks on the market today have moved away from that X shaped model. But, these models like simplehuman's dish rack seems like they'd be great for plates and not so much for bowls. And, the X shaped dish racks are fine for bowls but don't seem sturdy. Are there any dish racks out there that give me the best of both worlds?
