Purchasing Dish Racks For Your Kitchen
Dish racks, usually placed next to the kitchen sink, are used to assist in air drying wet dishes, glasses, silverware and other items. Most dish racks have slots and spaces so dishes can stand and bowls and glasses can be placed upside down in order to provide proper drainage. Dish racks used to come in one standard model and material; rubber and wire. They’ve evolved however, and depending on a homemaker’s lifestyle, dish racks can range from the inexpensive variety found in dollar stores to the more sophisticated version found in specialty kitchen shops. With so many brands and choices available, it makes the selection harder. Here are some tips to buy dish racks for you. Bulky dish rack takes up the kitchen space. Consider space availability to put the rack as well as the dish rack size which is appropriate for the number of people in the household. Collapsible or two-tiered racks are ideal for small kitchen as they save space yet functional.
The durability of the rack is highly dependent on the material used. It can be wood, bamboo, plastic, stainless steel, and chrome. Bamboo and stainless steel materials are good choices as they are easy to maintain and clean. Even though dish racks are used for drying clean dishes, these can be a bacteria prone spot. Grime and slime tend to build up over time especially when the rack retains water and not clean regularly. Hence, ease of cleaning is an important factor to consider when choosing a dish rack. Pick one with a slopping bottom or a drip tray to ensure proper water drainage.
