“ Brand: Wilko / Type: Dish Drainer / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
As part of my new kitchen items for university, I bought a Wilko Dish Drainer. I don't see the point in drying dishes when you can let them drain and dry naturally so this was a must have for me. As it is from Wilkinson, you can only buy it in store or from the online shop.
This dish drainer comes in a variety of colours, many bright and colourful but I opted for the platinum look so that it matched the other items I bought. The dimensions are 48 x 40 x 12cm. This product costs only £2.25 which I thought was great value for something that every kitchen should have.
The drainer, as I said before, is a platinum colour and is made out of a hard plastic. It is rectangular in shape which makes it fit the draining board really well - nearly perfect fitting for mine. At one end of the drainer are two holes in each corner which can act as cutlery drainers although I never use these. Next to these is a large open space with holes in the bottom which is generally used for larger items like pans or storage boxes. At the other end of the drainer is the plate rack which can hold roughly 11 plates. Next to this is also an open space but much smaller than the other as it can be used for larger kitchen utensils.
This dish drainer has plenty of space for everything that I would ever wash up in one go. There are only two of us living in the flat so there is plenty of space for both of our plates as well as any larger kitchen items we use. The plate rack holds plates well without having them wobble all over the place. The groves in the plastic are big enough for all plates I have tried with it so far. The holes at one end are quite small and wouldn't fit in much cutlery so this is why I bought a cutlery drainer as well.
While this could have been designed a bit better for drying cutlery, it works perfectly for everything else. It is large enough for all kitchens without being too big or being bigger than a normal draining board. It's also great value for something which I class as an essential.
