I have had this 5 weeks now and love it. We don't want a dishwasher but our usual drainng board dish drainer just couldn't take all our dishes plus pots and pans.This is a perfect 2nd dishdrainer, as it doesn't need a draining board and takes all our pots and pans/or lodgers dishes beautifully. We clean the drainng channel with a tiny brush weekly and pour spare boiling water from the kettle throuh it regularly. Only criticism is the design of the internal 'grill' means most plates and bowls do not always stand upright in it easily. Very happy otherwise.
