I was looking for a very small drainer just for my teapot. This is larger than I wanted but nonetheless I would not change it. This product is worth every penny. Clean in use, no drips and gentle on delicate items. Manufacturers please note, I am sure there would be a market for a 24cm mat. I wrote this a few months back. However after a few washes in the dishwasher it left dark marks on my worktop which were very difficult to remove. So I am unable to use it. It may be OK if you dont put it in the dishwasher but be warned. I originally awarded 5 stars but now only 1.
