I purchased this item because of the side glass holders. Unfortunately they aren't as sturdy as I expected it to be. They'll hold plastic cups of glasses but not actual ceramic or glass items. They prove to heavy for the holders. Also, the utensil drainer is not deep enough for taller item, such as spatulas, larger knives. The added grooves in the rack is nice. But I'll keep this until I find the one I know I'll be happy with.
