Pros & Cons
Rubbermaid Antimicrobial Large Dish Drainer is treated with Microban to inhibit growth of stains and odor causing bacteria, which in turn helps keep the dish drainer looking clean and smelling fresh. The dish drainer has 13 slots capacity for various dishes and a detachable silverware cup. The drainer is extra deep to hold maximum dishes and sturdy enough to hold stoneware plates securely. The plastic wire is coated and cushioned to protect dishes/sink and is best functional when used with dish drainer tray. This product is available in different sizes and colors.
However, it is noticed that the space between the wires has been narrowed when compared to earlier models, which does not allow the dishes to settle in place, but roll to the sides. Sometimes the plates rub against each other. The metal frame is not sturdy enough and bends easily when loaded with more items. The plastic wire cracks up easily and the center area sags after some usage leaving the drain board dirty and clogged. Many users also mentioned that the drainer is not proper or angled high enough to drain water into the sink, water pools in the corner and the runs all over the counter top adding workload and creating mess.
Overall, the Rubbermaid Antimicrobial Large Dish Drainer, Black is an average quality kitchen utility product in terms or functionality, durability and design. It is cheap so can be replaced often without burning a hole in the wallet.

Review Group #: 1
Plastic wire coating could be a little thicker • Wires are a little flimsy • Drain board is just a little weak piece of plastic • Space between long wires is narrow so the dishes don't settle in place, but roll to the side

It's very well made and holds a lot of pans • Serves its purpose fairly well
Review Group #: 3
The metal frame of the drainer isn't sturdy enough, bends easily when a number of heavy items are placed in the drainer • The plastic started to crack after some use
Review Group #: 4
Sturdy, wide, designed to shed water • Drain board doesn't angle high enough to drain water, and water runs all over the countertop • Center area sags after some time leaving dirty drain board
Review Group #: 5
It's now rectangular, and the utensils and silverware fall over • The long rectangular silverware container causes silverware to lay sideways, taking up the whole space • New design allows to distribute the silverware rather than cram all into a small corner cup • The silverware container is badly designed and easily slides down and out of basket
Review Group #: 6
Cheap product and not a very good quality • Some users like it for its low price
Review Group #: 7
Fits well next to sink • Fits in sink as well to save counter space • It is perfect for double sink • It's contoured for sinks with no rim height, but not for under-mount sinks • Water pools a bit on the corners • Doesn't drain if it does not have an under-counter mounted sink
