simplehuman compact dishrack, grey - KT1106
The compact dishrack is small enough to fit optimally in most standard sinks, completely freeing up counterspace, but still has the capacity to handle full-size plates. For countertop use, it has a swivel spout that rotates in any direction to drain water directly into the sink.

Yes it's compact and the draining spout is a great idea. The whole thing looks very chic and I appreciate how simple it is to remove both the rack and the utensil caddy for cleaning.
Unfortunately the spout is screwed into the base - I had hoped this would also disassemble but that's impossible without tools. Why does this matter? Because who knows what will end up growing in there if it can't be cleaned properly. Currently I'm just letting some diluted bleach run through it once a week. I run a pretty tight kitchen but mould still grows if you can't see it.
My biggest complaint is with the rack itself which simply isn't deep enough to hold my plates - and they are basic white plates from the supermarket, not something unduly heavy or fancy. Sure I can put my plates in and provided nothing touches the rack they'll be fine, but the slightest disturbance makes them fall over. The plate you see in the picture there? That's a big saucer. Trust me a plate just isn't stable in the rack. I started stacking my plates so they pointed towards an edge and then carefully resting the rest of the plates against each other so the stack was supported by the edge. A clumsy though stable solution. The upright ridges on the rack for the plates would need to be a good two inches taller to actually support a plate and I may mod something to do just that.
All in all I wouldn't recommend it. Oh, unless you only want it for bowls or glasses.
First the negatives- both minor. Firstly the cost- it's a lot of money for what is essentially a washing up bowl with a spout attached. Secondly the look- it looks like a washing up bowl with a spout attached. A bit industrial.
However: function over form, substance over style, etc. The product is actually quite effective- it holds far more washing up than I expected it to (I was a little concerned at first because my old one had two tiers). I needn't have worried- it holds all of my daily washing up (although I live alone- not sure if it could handle a whole family's). It holds saucepans too, which I wasn't expecting. The bigger model is about £60- and I draw the line at paying that much for a dish drainer.
Despite what I read in some other revews, it holds my full-size plates perfectly well. I guess it depends on what plates you have, but mine are OK. I haven't seen a great deal of water trickle down the spout yet- although I do give everything a good old shake before it goes in the drainer. The benefit of being shaped like a washing up bowl is that all the water stays inside and doesn't go everywhere.
Another good feature which I hadn't thought about until I set it up is that because it is elevated, you can wipe a bit of the area underneath it when wiping down the worktops. It stops crumbs etc from accumulating in the edges.
In conclusion- it's still early days yet, but I am happy with this product. It isn't the prettiest or cheapest, but it feels robust and is made of nice plastic. If you don't have a draining board, give it a whirl.
Firstly it looks great, really adds a bit of style to the kitchen, but the rack is also very practical and sturdy and the raised legs and drip tray are just genius. So much water goes on your work top and scum builds up under a normal dish-rack and this prevents this from happening.
There is also a cutlery compartment which slots onto the rack in the corner and is removable, a nice touch, and the rack itself is 360 degrees so can be moved around to suit where your sink is or where it looks best.
It is called 'compact' and this would be quite correct, some reviews complain that it does not hold enough items but I have piled this thing high with plates, bowls pots pans and it holds the lot, it does not look neat but the washing up never did and I do not have OCD so this is fine by me. I do live in a two bed flat, just the two of us and the rack holds just the right amount even on the busiest of dirty dish days, but maybe this is made for just two people rather than a 5 person family.
I have given it 4 rather than 5 stars purely because large round dishes often sit at a tilt rather than straight up (as noted by other reviewers) this may be a problem for some but used correctly stacking dishes from the back to front it does work for me and because all the other features are so good and it looks great I am very happy with this dish rack.
