It holds plates and glassware vertically and flatware in a clear plastic caddy. Clear plastic tubing on the expanding arms prevents scratches on your sink and keeps the drainer from slipping.

  • Made from rustproof stainless steel



  • 13-3/4" x 11-1/2" x 5" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good buy I highly recommend this stainless steel dish drainer to all. I love that it sits in the sink and I don't have to sit it on the sink. The dishes dry faster .I bought one for my niece when she moved into her newhome and really compliments her sink accessories. Now it's my turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great in my new sink I have been looking for a stainless steel in sink drainer for my odd sized kitchen sink. This is perfect for the "standard" size sink found in most manufatured homes which is smaller than site build homes. It looks good and is very sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for a good price After moving into our new house, I did not want to have dishes that needed to be handwashed drying all over the counter. We do not have backsplash and our paint is very sensitive to water. This in-sink dish drainer matches all of our stainless steel appliances and is expandable to fit many sink sizes. I only wish the metal part of the drainer was a little more sturdy/thick. Otherwise, perfect product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pleased Our kitchen has about as much counter space as an RV. We were wasting half of it with a dish drainer. This fits perfectly over the sink. Although it takes up half of my sink space, I find that is not such a bad thing since it is an incentive not to leave many dishes in the sink. Have not had long enough to know if it rusts, but if it does, the price is cheap enough that I don't mind replacing. This has done wonders for our kitchen with the counter top real estate we got back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good fit for double sink but rusts easily This is the only dish drainer I found that would fit the width of my double sink and was adjustable for length. I've purchased this product before and it rusted badly under the vinyl padding where water easily seeps in. The main basket also rusted at the cross joints. I purchased again because of the fit. For this price, I'm willing to purchase a new one annually as I have not found a substitute any where else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver We are a family of three living in a small condo. We are placing it up for sale and I was looking for something to show off all of the counter space. This fits perfectly in our double sink. and we have so much more room now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for small kitchens! I purchased this product because Of the lack of counter space in my studio apartment kitchen. It fits on one side of the sink, so I can still wash dishes or use the other half of the sink while dishes are drying :) I like that the expandable part is covered in rubber so I don't have a problem with it slipping. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right ~ Stainless steel in-sink Dish Drainer Soon I will be the only person living here. My dishwasher "died" and I elected not to replace it, hoping to save on electric and water bills. My Dish Drainer is just the right size, I wash the few things I have immediately, and never have dirty dishes. Problem solved !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great size I had a hard time finding a drainer that was small enough to fit our mobile home sink and yet big enough to hold pots and pans. This does and even has a silverware holder!!! Just what we needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For $15 I am a pretty happy camper. We recently got a new sink installed and it has curved sides and one side is on the smaller side but is ~7" deep, so it was very hard to find a dish drainer that would fit. This one didn't end up fitting down into the sink base but the rubber extended handles hold onto the sides and look like they wont damage our granite. For $15 I am a pretty happy camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expandable Stainless-Steel In-Sink Dish Drainer We previously had purchased several different style dish drainers from Department Stores and we were completely dissatisfied with them. We actually wanted stainless-steel drainers but both the Department Store and on-line company prices were ridiculous. As an afterthought, I added this dish-drainer to an order for other products I was purchasing from The Container Store. We were completely satisfied with the quality and compatibility of this Stainless-Steel Dish Drainer and the price was the very best found at both Department Stores AND on-line website stores! This was our first experience with The Container Store and we're 100% satisfied with their pricing, service and product quality on everything ordered!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not A Space Saver At All Because apartments are very small in NYC and some don't have counter space, I thought this would solve my problem. This is not a space-saver. It's about 1/2 inch too long into the sink and about 1 inch too wide. There is no room to wash your dishes at the same time the drain is in your sink. Also the adjustable extender is not a good idea, the drain moves too easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THIS! I wasn't sure about this when I bought it. I read the reviews, but just wasn't convinced it was going to be big enough, or fit my sick, etc. This thing is AWESOME. I have a double sink, so it's convenient to have this on one side. It's adjustable, deep enough, holds A LOT more than it looks like it will. It has freed up my counter space. If you're on the fence about this, get off, and run to your local Container Store. This product is well made and looks classy in the kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Fits my kitchen sink well and keeps drying dish clutter tidy. So far no issues with rust or moldy plastic tubing.
Date published: 2012-07-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from counter drain This product is good and easy to use but I wish it had come with a counter top drain into the sink so that it would not be in the way while dishes are drying. Most of the time, this is not a problem. There are times when it would be nice to move this onto the counter.
Date published: 2012-04-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... We've had this dish drainer for about three years. It works fine and gets the job done. My only complaint is that over time, water has seeped into the plastic tubing that covers the arms, and the metal has started to corrode underneath it. There's now green and black crud in there, which is not what you want to see in your kitchen! I like the drainer, so my next move will probably be to cut off the tubing and try to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and sleek Well made, fits just about any sink, and the size is perfect for our family of 2. The plate slots are spaced perfectly but the other wires could be closer together, hence 4 instead of 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Adequate Dish Drainer We like that this dish drainer is stainless steel. We like the flatware holder as well. Our only complaint is that the "mesh" needs to be closer together. Smaller items can easily slip through this dish drainer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but functional The in-sink drainer freed up much needed counter space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! Living in a mobile home leaves me with very little counter space in my kitchen. This drainer frees up SO much working room on my counter, I just love it!! It is well made of good quality materiel and small enough so that I still have the use of half of my sink. Best thing I've done for myself in a long time!

my new undermount sink is 18 1/2 x 25

will this drying rack work? It is one basin.
Asked by: debMckenna
Yes, it sits in the sink, holds a lot of stuff, and drains into the sink. Glad I purchased it and it frees up some counter space.
