How to Choose a Dish Rack – Buying Guide

Aside from selecting a design the matches the overall look of your kitchen, let us guide you on what to consider before buying a dish rack.

Consider the Size and Capacity

Consider the Size and Capacity

Estimate the number and kinds of plates, bowls, glasses, cutleries, even pots and pans that you use regularly. This will give you an idea of the dish rack size and compartments that you need. These must be able to accommodate your daily washing load to avoid build-up in the kitchen sink.


Most of the time, the size of a dish rack depends on the size of your family or household. Also, don't forget to consider the available counterspace in your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen, go for an expandable or retractable dish rack so you can adjust the size according to our available space. You can also try over-the-sink dish racks to maximize the vertical space above your sink.

Select a Material That Will Not Develop Rust & Harbor Molds

Dish racks are exposed to water all the time, so choose a material such as stainless steel, plastic, Palochina wood and bamboo that can resist rust and mold growth.


Also, pick a material that is sturdy enough to carry the weight of your dishes - better be safe than sorry! Moreover, it is important to get a dish rack that is easy to clean. It is recommended to spot clean the dish rack every day and to deep clean it at least once a week to prevent a major build-up of water deposit and any form of residue.

Sturdy and Rust-Resistant Stainless Steel Dish Racks

Sturdy and Rust-Resistant Stainless Steel Dish Racks

Stainless steel dish racks are the most durable and sturdy – capable of holding heavy plates and glassware. It can resist rust, will not grow molds, and does not corrode easily. 


This material is also easy to clean and will complement stainless steel appliances in your kitchen, which is ideal if you prefer a simple and cohesive look. 

Plastic Dish Racks are Budget-friendly

Plastic Dish Racks are Budget-friendly

Plastic dish racks, on the other hand, are very budget-friendly. These are available in many color options both neutral and vibrant ones. It will also not rust nor corrode, however, it is susceptible to bacteria and mildew if not washed frequently.


Most plastic dish racks come with a cover attachment. You have the option to close down the top cover in case you need to leave the house or don’t have the time to put away the dishes inside their permanent home in the cabinets.  

Wooden and Bamboo Dish Racks for a Homey Accent

Wooden and Bamboo Dish Racks for a Homey Accent

Wooden dish racks are a great option if you’re planning to use it for storage purposes. You can place it inside kitchen cabinets to organize your plate collection and arrange pot lids.


If you wish for a homier accent on your countertop, go for a Palochina wood or bamboo dish rack. Both are safe for airdrying because it will not develop rust and mineral deposits. Bamboo is also naturally antibacterial and is easy to clean. 

Check the Draining System

Check the Draining System

One of the main functions of a dish rack is to collect excess water from the newly washed plates and utensils. Select a dish rack with an effective draining system that will let the water dissipate quickly. This way, you’ll prevent mold and bacteria from growing.


A plastic drip tray simply goes under the main dish rack structure to catch all the water coming from the drying dishes. This prevents the water from spreading all over the kitchen countertop.


For more convenience, look for dish racks with a water-guiding port. This allows you to drain the excess water straight into the sink – a quicker option than emptying a water-filled plastic drip tray manually.

How to Clean a Dish Rack

How to Clean a Dish Rack

Spot cleaning your dish rack every day involves rinsing it with clean running water to remove any residue from drying your plates and other dinnerware. This also allows you to airdry the rack itself to prevent water deposits from developing.


Every week or two, it is also recommended to deep clean your dish rack to avoid bacteria and mold growth. Simply follow the steps below to make sure that your dish rack is squeaky clean as if it’s always brand new.


Steps:

  1. If possible, disassemble the dish rack and scrub it using a dishwashing soap
  2. You can also try soaking it in a large basin containing water and a cup of white vinegar
  3. If there are large dry water residue, especially in plastic dish racks, wet a paper towel with white vinegar then push it into the gaps and corners of the dish rack, then let it sit for 20-30 minutes
  4. Try using a sanitized toothbrush if the deposits are not too thick
  5. Another option is to fully submerge the dish rack into a gallon of water with ¼ cup of bleach for 20 minutes
  6. To remove rust, use oxalic acid by pouring it onto a damp cloth or brush to scrub away the rust
  7. Rinse it off with clean water
  8. Allow to airdry then wipe with a clean kitchen towel
