Slat Bamboo Dish Rack by UmbraÂ®
You have to love anything that is Bamboo!
Very nice product. The trouble with most bamboo drainer is they get very nasty where the water collects near the bottom. This design does not do that we it drains into a plastic drain pan and then into the sink. I wish it had more slots and at times wish a few of the slots were further apart for larger items. But after all it is designed for plates (just can't have it all)! The flatware sections are just the right depth, even larger spoon and stirring spoons etc do not out. It is very attractive so leaving it by the sink is not unsightly. I love this little drainer

Completes my kitchen
I did away with the plastic drainer years ago, and this little rack is so much nicer than that soggy wet towel for all those odds 'n ends that aren't going into the dishwasher. I love it!

We just purchased this product and like the simplicity and modern look it adds to the kitchen. I was a little surprised, however, to notice that within a few days the bamboo already had light colored spotted stains. I guess it is from the water. They don't seem to rub out, so I guess it will need to be restained.

Gets the Job Done
I bought this for my small kitchen that does not have a dishwasher and it works fine and I love that it is compact. My only confusion was that the silverware tray doesn't fit perfectly into it - it sits at a little bit of an angle. Also, I have square plates which I thought would stand up ok on their own but they don't. I end up just leaning them against the silverware rack so in the end it works out. I love that it's flat already so I can just slip it under the sink when it's not in use and the draining tray works great.
