~Asda Dish Drainer~
Asda have quite a large selection of kitchen essentials on offer. Their basic range is of kitchen essentials is the plastics range which includes matching cutlery trays, washing baskets etc.
Here we have the dish drainer in colour 'silver'. Essentially, this dish drainer is designed to be sat at the side of your sink. Once you have washed your dishes, you put them on the drainer to allow excess water to drip off. The dish drainer has various slots at the base which allow the water to gather on the side of your sink and run back into the sink or be wiped away with a cloth.
The measurements of this dish drainer are approx 35 x 30 x 8 cm. It is made of plastic.
This dish drainer can be bought instore or from www.asda.com. It is priced at just £2.00 and is part of a 3 for £5.00 offer.
I bought this dish drainer when we moved into our current flat nearly 2 years ago. I went to Asda to stock up on bits and pieces on a limited budget and ended up with several bits from the plastics range. They have served us well. At £2.00, this drainer is an absolute bargain price. It is nothing special to look at - it is made from slightly transparent 'grey' plastic but is lightweight and fairly sturdy. It hasn't let us down yet so that is the main thing.
The size of the dish drainer is ideal for a family. It is quite big and does take up the full space at the side of my sink. I am quite lazy when it comes to dishes. I usually wash them and then leave them to dry (unless I know Mum is due to visit) so this dish drainer does get plenty of use. The drainer has 4 different sections which have raised sides and are quite deep to avoid any accidental damages.
One half of the drainer is suitable for various sized plates. There are 10 slots which can easily accommodate a large dinner plate each or even two smaller plates. The slots are quite wide and when the dishes are slotted in, the dish drainer remains steady on the surface. Deep bowls do not sit well in this drainer section. There is a smaller section which I use for bowls or cups but it doesn't hold much.
There are three deep cut outs for cutlery and these keep the cutlery neaty and tidy. I put my sharper knives in one section and other cutlery in the other sections. The drainer does hold quite an amount of plates and cutlery without showing distress. There are ample slots at the base of the drainer which allows the water to seep through and the dishes dry quickly within the drainer.
This dish drainer is easy to clean. I wipe it over with soap water or antibacterial spray to freshen it up once a week and this does the trick. When it is empty, I clean the sink part underneath and turn the drainer upside down or put it under the sink until I need it the next day. It has suffered minor scratches but it still looks decent enough and has proven to be a worthwhile purchase.
I would recommend to anyone starting out in their first home - it is basic but does its intended job. It simply isn't stylish and if you have a modern kitchen (mine is semi-modern lol) then it may look a little out of place. It isn't as cool as my Mums stainless steel drainer!
