Review Of Heat And Dry Kitchen Dish Racks

Really? A dish rack that dries your dishes? How cool is that? Now I’ve seen everything. People seem to just love these kitchen wonders and after reviewing the reviews, I completely understand why. I, too, am tired of wasting paper towels to dry dishes, so they don’t have a faint odor of what you last used your dish towel for or pick up hair from the dryer towels, and using the dishwasher for a few dishes just doesn’t make sense. Especially since we’re all trying to conserve water these days, or at least should be.

A side note is that one reviewer mentioned that her new High Efficiency Dish Washer does not dry plastic, so she uses a heated dish dryer for her all of her plastics. Interesting, because now you have to buy another gadget to get something else done? Not too “green” in my book, but maybe she should just get rid of the plastic anyway and not buy any more. Of course, if it’s Tupperware, that doesn’t count, because I love my Tupperware and could never part with it and I know a lot of other Tupperware lovers that feel the same way.

Let’s take a look at some of the options available.

1. Bon Home DDR100WH Heat & Dry Dish Rack. These racks retail for just under $100.00. You can find these for sale at Amazon or for even less online at Woot. This heated dish rack looks just like a regular dish rack, yet dries plastics in 10 minutes and has removable metal racks so you can arrange and configure as needed.

One reviewer commented that the blower only cycles on for 15 minutes and she didn’t like that. To me, that is not a negative because you wouldn’t want to be using it more than necessary and you can just turn it on again, if needed. Most reviewers stated 10-15 minutes did the job. Also, be aware that water collects below the unit and needs to be completely drained from the collection tray.

One positive comment was that it’s nice for people with arthritis and limited use of their hands. I feel this is a great benefit and, for this reason alone, the heat & dry dish rack would make a lovely present for someone that for sure would not be re-gifted! Other positive notes were that it came assembled and the drier itself is quiet. Also, wine goblets don’t have to sit at an angle, as in a traditional dishwasher. So there are not watermarks to have to rub off.

2. Sunpentown SD-1501 Warm-Air 3-2/5-Liter-Capacity. This is a self-contained fully enclosed unit and retails for $84.00 online through Amazon or pick up at Target. It has a 20 minute dry cycle and works great for drying baby bottles. Now that’s a good use I hadn’t thought of. There were less reviews, but over-all positive. The only drawback was the same complaint as above with a little water collecting in the tray beneath the unit. I’m sure if you keep it clean and as dry as possible it will not affect anything.

The above to products are actually the only two retail models I found that do this type of work for you. I did come across a patent issued in 1989 from Brotherton, et al. that shows a diagram and everything. So, I actually think there is room for at least one more competitor in this niche market. All in all, I think I'm going to go to Target and pick me up a Sunpentown or maybe look on Craiglist first. Maybe someone's getting rid of theirs because they don't like the fact they have to clean the water collection try! Their loss is my gain.
