I bought one of these dish drainers and as I was looking at it in the store, I noticed right away that water would accumulate in the corner "cups" that the little feet go in. It has no where to drain out of the little cups the feet are in and will then eventually rust the feet. Duh. Since this is not something I'm wanting to replace any time soon, I decided before even buying it that I would put a tiny drop of Gorilla Glue in each little foot cup to keep water from getting in and accumulating there. It actually took about 2-3 drops for each, but I let each drop dry thoroughly in between drops since Gorilla Glue expands. It isn't really noticeable since the glues the same color as the khacki color dish drainer I picked. I think this will solve the problem. Time will tell, but I think I've definitely added some time to the life of my new dish drainer. See pictures of before and after.
