It was finally time to replace my large, heavy-duty Rubbermaid wire dish rack, and lo and behold, I was shocked to find a cheaply made imitation of the classic design in its place.
I have been a Rubbermaid customer for over 40 years, and until now equated the Rubbermaid name with quality.
The original design had versatility to allow me to accommodate a variety of dishes, glassware, heavy mixing bowls, bakeware, pots and pans, etc. And the removable corner flatware holder could be placed appropriately for the ever-changing loads, and easily cleaned in top dishwasher rack.
Now, the new, but NOT IMPROVED version would barely hold the weight of my kitchen essentials, thus will not suit my needs, let alone have lasting value, since I am not willing to purchase things that contribute to this "throw away" society.
I was required to enter one star, but no stars would better represent my overall disappointment.
Please return to the original Classic design, with it's corner pocket and thick, heavy wire frame and generous coating. I am not interested in anti-microbial chemicals either, in my food area, or in our environment.
