a) Worst feature: most of this dish rack is plastic, including the drip tray, the silverware holder, and the bottom portion of the knife holder. The only steel is the outer wall and, of course, the wiring. The plastic drip tray has a very cheap feel to it.
b) Best feature: infinitely configurable. True, the spout can only handle 3 directions (it's not long enough to go to the other end of the dish rack), but since you can flip the plastic tray, you can still orient the dish rack with the cup rack facing outward. The inner rack can also be flipped, and the silverware holder can be placed at either end to suit different kitchen geometries.
c) The bamboo knife rack is an interesting gimmick, but not tall enough to accommodate anything longer than a steak knife.
d) The plastic feet raise the dish rack way off the ground. If you have overhanging cupboards, you probably won't want to use these plastic feet. However, be aware that the dish rack can then move and slide quite easily on the steel wire feet.
Overall rating is 4 stars, because this product is better than average both in looks and in function. However, the product is a little bit overpriced for what you are getting. Don't assume premium construction from the premium price.
The best feature for me is the knife holder. There's a bamboo insert that keeps knifes safe and secure while drying. Finally a place to put good knives without the risk of damaging or blunting the blade (or cutting yourself). Excellent!
A minor quibble - the folding racks are a bit stubborn to move sometimes - you have to press them in so they fold down, which can be a bit awkward, especially with wet hands.
This also comes in white, but gray looks better (to my eye) and I hope will be easier to keep clean. While Amazon is an excellent place to buy this, you can also find it at the bed and bath store that has those discount coupons. Depending on sales tax, that can be a bit less expensive.
Yes, it's a lot to spend on a dish rack, but I've never been disappointed when buying good quality products -- spend a bit more now, and not have to replace it for a long while. My other simplehuman dish rack is four years old and still looks and works great -- hoping the same for this.
