Collapsible Dish Rack – Stripping Basket?

Collapsible Dish Rack – Stripping Basket?

A few days back I was in a store looking at supplies for my new home. In the kitchen department, I saw this collapsible dish rack made by Room Essentials. Clever idea. Opened up it’s 12.5″ wide by 14.5″ long and 5.5″ tall. Push down on it and it is only 2.5″ high.  Man oh man. A perfect fit for my small place. So I buy it.  Cost? 15 buckaroos.

After using it a for week, a friend comes by and asks if it is a stripping basket? I say no,  but then I start thinking well…… yeah it is ! It is about the right size. Has fingers in the bottom to prevent line tangles. And collapses for travel. Attach a belt or a bungee and you’re in business.

Folded down

Concerned about the small cutlery shelf on the left end? Fear not. That pops right off. The only thing I’m not crazy about is all the holes. I prefer a dry stripping basket. But all in all – kinda nice! And I just learned that Amazon sells the same thing for half the price! Oh well.
