About this deal

The Zojila is made of thick, heavy-duty stainless steel wire, and it’s the only rack we tested that has a solid stainless steel drain board.

The three divided sections in the ample utensil holder are another nice touch, as they let you organize your silverware and larger utensils as you see fit. The Simplehuman Steel Frame Dishrack is the largest of our picks—sizable enough to hold dishes for a four-person household and then some.The Simplehuman rack would have been our top pick, but it costs more than the KitchenAid at this writing, and it’s 7½ inches wider than that model—about the size of our midsize microwave pick. We also poured three cups of water on each rack to see how well the drain trays could withstand an accidental influx of water; although this is definitely an extreme test, it simulates the worst-case scenario, such as when someone neglects to fully empty a pot before overturning it on the rack. It was the most effective rack at draining water during our testing, and it has an enclosed basin that won’t easily overflow if you accidentally dump a ton of water onto it. A few reviewers have complained about smaller items slipping out the sides because there’s no railing that wraps around the rack, but this seems like a problem you can anticipate and avoid with some strategic loading. With a vast collection of individual tool that meet very specific needs, you will always be confident in your finished product.

If you need something right now that’s a bit smaller and a lot less expensive than our top pick, we recommend the lightweight but decent Rubbermaid Antimicrobial Dish Drainer, which you can pair with the Rubbermaid Antimicrobial Drain Board (sold separately). Washing dishes is a part of life, but how much you have to wash can hinge on factors such as lifestyle, family size, the presence of a dishwasher, and whether any roommates are pulling their weight. It holds somewhat less than our other full-size picks, but it can still work for a four-person household.Removable flatware caddy, with built in dishwasher inspired handle, Holds cutlery and other utensils. You can use it in the sink or on the counter, it holds a surprising amount within a small footprint, it drains well, and it’s well-liked among reviewers.

The silicone-coated wires were far enough apart to fit thick dinner plates or sheet pans but still close enough to keep everything upright. The only rack that did a better job holding that much during our tests was the Simplehuman rack, which takes up more space.The Rubbermaid can also serve as an in-sink dish rack, which solves a few of its shortcomings—with it situated in the sink, you don’t need a tray beneath it, it can’t tip over, and letting your heavier dishes rest against the rigid sides of the sink makes the rack’s flimsiness less of an issue. Featuring a spacious design, it can hold plates, mugs, glasses, bowls, flatware, pots, pans, and more.

Made with a soft-touch coating that won't scratch your dinnerware or enamel cookware, and the soft feet keep the dish rack from damaging counters. For one year from date of purchase, under normal use and care, KitchenAid will replace this product free of charge, if it is found to be defective in material or workmanship. It wasn’t sturdy at all—when we loaded the silverware first, the whole rack tipped over into the sink.One small problem that stood out among owner reviews and in our own experience: The sticky labels on this dish rack are frustratingly difficult to remove. However, this rack has a footprint roughly equivalent to that of a midsize microwave, and it’s 7 inches wider than the KitchenAid dish rack. Dish racks can develop hard-water stains or accumulate gunk over time, even though you’re loading them with clean dishes, so it’s important to be able to clean your dish rack regularly without too much hassle. Although the new version has the same number of pieces as the previous model—six total, twice as many pieces as our top pick has—each piece is designed to be removed without any tools. Also, though the rubber-coated wire is gentle on dishes, in practice the coating was a little too effective: Our dishes slipped out of the slots, and the catch mechanism that was supposed to hold the rack open would slip out as well, causing the whole thing to collapse.
