Rated 5 out of 5 by ummhasan Best Drain Ever!!!
My mother bought this (chrome) for us when we got married 2 1/2 years ago because I loved it. She had the same one in black that she gave to my aunt who loves it and she got herself a chrome one to match her appliances. Every one loves it in my family. My grandmother is moving so my mother bought one for her new house too! So my mother has bought 4 and all the people who use it love it. It looks great. It can fit sooooooo many dished if used properly. I love it soooo much that i sent the url of the dish drain to my mother's aunt who has been looking for a good one. Anyway, I can go on and on about this. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. (Oh, I just remembered, I just bought one today for my neighbor who does not have one!)

I purchased this rack a few weeks ago because the plastic dish rack I had was mildewed and disgusting. I use this one along with a drying mat and it holds quite a bit of dishes and pots. It is lightweight and I love the chrome color. I'd buy it again!

I have always purchased Rubbermaid dish drainers. They have always lasted. This one, however, is not the same quality. It bends easily, tips under the weight of large cutting boards, and, now, is covered with rust.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saxchief Rubbermaid Large Dish Drainer, Chrome
This drainer is very stylish and its size is perfect for the left-hand sink--it sits right at the top! The utensil bin is very handy and can be moved and we're very happy with the purchase.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Superb Poor Design
Very disappointed in the design of the new dish drainer. The older ones were made better and the water drained into the sink instead of going all over the counter. The quality of the older dish drainers and mats were much better and I'm very disappointed in the new one. If I still had my receipt I would definitely return it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by heartbroken How could you?
Dear Rubbermaid Designers, You will be happy to know that I made it safely back into the house, with no broken bones, after walking out to the parking lot and climbing in and out of the garbage dumpster. Why did I do that, you ask? TO GET MY OLD DISH DRAINER BACK! And at my age such acrobatics are no small feat, but it was worth it. Have any of you people ever actually washed dishes? No--I didn't think so. If you had, you would realize that the silverware cup does NOT belong in the center. In that location it's in the way, and the space on each side of it is wasted. When it was located in the corner, the design was just perfect. The bottom was little enuff that small items didn't fall down flat, causing a tangled mess. In the corner the cup took up the smallest total space possible, and was the ideal arrangement. Why did you mess with perfection? So I will just keep using my old, stained drainer until you come to your senses.

Bought this dish drainer to replace an old one and was hoping the Rubbermaid brand would mean quality. Found it flimsy and the configuration was better. Would be much better if it was made of thick, quality stainless steel and the feet were removed for something sturdier.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lunytoon Cheap
I replaced my old drainer recently and dislike this one immensely. Very cheaply made. Feels like the glass holders are going to bend from the weight of a glass on them. The drainer doesn't hold much and I don't like where the silverware holder is located. Big waste of money. Also hate the drain board. Whoever thought it was a good idea to change them so the wide side drains into the sink. I feel like the whole drainer is in the way and if I put glasses on the holders, they are in the way when I'm washing the dishes. Very awkward all the way around. I like the old style that the drain mat holds the drainer the long way and not the width of it. Very poor design. Hope to find a better replacement. I guess that was money down the drain!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wasp Where did the quality go?
I recently purchased a new dish drainer to replace my old Rubbermaid drainer that I've had for over 25 years. Wasn't anything wrong with it but I wanted to match a new color scheme.
I still can't believe that Rubbermaid would put their name on such a inferior product. The wire is half the size of that on my old drainer. Feels like I could bend it in half with my bare hands.
So disappointed with this item.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyJo The Perfect Drainer
We've had issues for years trying to find the perfect drainer. The problem was three legs were at the corners, the fourth was off set to accommodate the silverware holder. Since we keep it in the sink for drainage, it always wobbled. We had to devise a way to keep it level. That solution did't work well either. After spotting this drainer on the store shelf, we knew it was perfect. What a happy day to be excited with something so simple. We did a happy dance and gave hugs all around. What a "PERFECT" drainer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dd2012 Photo shows spoon holder but didnt come with it
The photo showed a white holder for spoons/forks. But there was no such holder when I got it. The product was shipped without any packaging! Did the holder fall off was was the advertising incorrect? No idea! The product seems durable - only if there was a place to put tiny items that fall off now!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doddie Drainer cheaply made
We purchased a drainer and mat. Both are of hard plastic and not suitable. This drainer is poorly made. Too many utensils fall through and I have had small dishes fall through. It is too short. Like the corner drainer I had for years. Why change a success? We are taking both back and asking for a refund.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Markos L3-6032-M5-CHROM
1) The chrome must be very thin because the unit exhibits rust within a month.
2) The utensil (knife, fork, etc.) holder does not have any "ribs" at the bottom so the utensils slice across and into the holder. With ribbing at the bottom of the utensil holder, the utensils would only slide next to the nearest rib and stop.
Rated 1 out of 5 by soprano I hate my new dish drainer!
I had an old Rubbermaid dish drainer that lasted for about 25 years. When it finally became too decrepit to use, I purchased a new Rubbermaid dish drainer. It's a tremendous disappointment. The slats go the wrong direction so the bowls fall over the silverware or, if you put them the other direction, they fall down until you have about three in a row. Certainly the Rubbermaid engineers could have done better than this! The silverware holder could have been put on the other end of the dish drainer, which would have solved the problem or the slats could tilt the other direction.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Shah12 This product is not as good as earlier model
We had similar rubbermaid dish drainer which lasted for a long time. It was beige in color with rounded top corners and two spoon holders which hung on outside of the rack. We really liked it. The new rack has mitered corners at the top which looks good but is not functional as larger plates can't fit in reduced width at ends. New rack has no horizontal wire about an inch above the bottom like the old ones and space between some of the wires is too wide. Smaller items like juice glass and small cotainers tend to fall out from wider open spaces. Also added horizontal wire will keep glasses placed in glass holders up from the bottom tray. There is only one spoon holder which is not adequate if you have more spoons and other items. Also spoons tend to slide at the bottom and fall sideways. Some cross stiffeners as in older baskets will prevent this. Spoon holders hang on the inside and reduce the space for dishes and or pots to fit in the dish rack. New dish drainer appears good but is not functional like old one.

I recently replaced my old Rubbermaid dish drainer with this newer model. I don't like it at all. My largest complaint is with the long silverware drainer. The corner squarish one on my old drainer was much better. Also the drain holes in this one are too large/long. I cut up a sponge and placed it in the bottom of the utensil holder to prevent the tips of my knives and the handles of my silverware from falling through. Because there are no upright support bars behind the utensil holder it flops forward toward the dishes when it is full. Also I think the dish separators are too wide and I agree with other reviewers who said some of the space beside the separators is wasted. Unfortunatly, there is not a lot of choice when shopping for a dish drainer now days. Color is also an issue. This drainer only comes in black or white, I believe. I would have preferred something in bone/beige.

Dish rack is not what it used to be. I think they should have taken the stainless steel dish rack & placed wire coating inside. Rubber feet should be closed to prevent mold growth. Sliverware cup takes up space so you can put less dishes in rack. The paint on the bar on which the silverware cup hangs, it cracks if you put too many spoons in there. I like the plastic dish rack where there are 2 silverware cups are outside the dish rack. Drain board needs to be higher in order to drain water. I put a stick under my board. Maybe I will buy the plastic dish rack .
Rated 4 out of 5 by cerealmom Not fond of the feet!
I'm about to buy yet another wire dish drain - the cutlery container is shot. My problem is with the feet - since they are applied from the bottom, water and yuck get in there, so I have to remove them to scrub and bleach them so they aren't unsightly. Maybe a top-applied foot design could be used? Please?
Rated 1 out of 5 by kneazle Darn utensil basket!!!
We agree with the other reviews that hate this basket. I would love to find... and am now looking for the old style to replace it. Silverware always falling out and down under the drainer! Urgg! I made a special trip to rubbermaid to tell them how awful this product design is. Same goes for the sink pad with SLOTS!? How did they think silverware wouldn't slide through it?! I don't care how "modern" you want it to look, it has to work first!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by discotrek Inferior design
I just bought the larger size "basic" dish drainer. I suppose it's kind of what i would expect for the price. Despite not paying a lot for this particular drainer (versus the other styles on the shelf), I would still expect smart design on the part of Rubbermaid. You can manufacture less expensive products and still incorporate smart and practical design. Yes, this drainer is clearly inferior to Rubbermaid drainers in the past. What isn't made cheaper in this day? So i get what i pay for. What I'm disappointed with is the frustrating utensil basket. I very much agree with one of the other reviewers – the elongated shape of the basket allows the utensils to slide almost, but not quite flat. Becomes a hassle when adding more utensils because you have to constantly pick up the utensils that are in there to stand them up straight so you can add more wet utensils. A simple design flaw. A forgotten (or perhaps intentionally neglected little design oversight?) What the basket needs is a short "divider wall" or two at the bottom of the basket to keep utensils from sliding out from under and will serve to keep them standing upright. And, the utensils will dry better when stored upright.
Rated 2 out of 5 by sasbothe Poor Quality
I agree with several of the other reviewers. This product is cheaper than the previous models. I too wish I had not thrown my old one out before purchasing the new one. The wire isn't as strong and they DID remove some of the support wires on the sides/ends. Smaller objects fall out and it just has a rinky dink feel about it.
I bought the Rubbermaid brand because I have always associated it with quality products. A disappointment.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Item
I bought one of these in red a few years back. It has lasted longer than I thought, which why wouldn't it being made out of metal. Great item.
Rated 1 out of 5 by m2x2 BAD, BAD, BAD
I would gladly pay more to have the older style and MUCH better quality of the dish drainer and tray. I heartily dislike the utensil cup, the opening where it is supposed to sit inside the drainer and the skimpy quality overall. Why did you remove any of the wires at all ? now if I have extra dishes they fall through ! Having the silverware cup on the outside is much better, and the softer rubber overall is much more durable. I doubt that I will use Rubbermaid products again, unless there is considerable improvement !
Rated 1 out of 5 by Canoemandan Poorly Designed
A letter to Rubbermaid. This dishrack is very poorly designed. The elongated silverware holder allows for shorter utensils like spoons and salad forks to nearly lay horizontally in its bottom. When soup bowls are put in the rack they cover up the silverware holder preventing access to it. With the silverware holder centered in the rack, the small space to the left and right of it are wasted space. The wires have some thin coating on it that I don't expect to last. My old dish rack with the silverware holder in the corner was of much better quality and design. It was sturdier and the wires were much better cushioned. With the silverware holder in the corner it was designed to be very efficient. I wish I could get my old rack back. For as ratty looking as it was I would use it anyway and trash your new product.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Munsch Useful Product After Fixing Faults
I have a standard double-bowl sink. Drainer goes in right bowl. Drainer modified as follows: 1. rotated drainer 180 deg. (so plates lean right, away from left bowl washing sink and faucet); 2. closed drainer utensil cup opening (now on left) with Lexan and cable ties (so things will not fall out if drainer lifted); 3. added rib (Lexan & ties) to bottom of utensil cup (so utensils will stand up better); 4. moved utensil cup to right rear of drainer (away from left bowl washing sink and faucet); 5. attached bottom of utensil cup to drainer with cable ties (to prevent utensil cup from tipping over when full). I am right-handed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shweta Very Disappointed...!!!!
I bought this dish rack a couple of weeks back and recently noticed that it had started to rust all over... I had also purchased the basic drain board to help drain the excess water into the sink... And guess what...??? The black rubber board has now white patches all over and wouldn't come off no matter what... I am truly disappointed with the overall quality of Rubbermaid...
I am now researching to buy another dish rack and would recommend to look only for rust proof dish racks like the stainless steel ones....

I've used Rubbermaid products for very many years. When I was a child we used a Rubbermaid dish drainer that was plastic(?) coated wire. It also had the drainboard that was plastic(?) and flexible. I am currently using a large drainer, wire coated in plastic, red, and a large clearish hard plastic drainboard. I haven't found a large red drainboard. I do want it to be red, and flexible. The Basic Wire Dish Drainers match the one I currently have. In the picture shown, the silverware cup installs over a large opening; why? I don't find the quality or selections to be compared to products from the past.
