It didn't last a year!
As previously stated Here, Rubbermaid finally sent me a voucher sufficient for a new dish rack. That is very commendable for the large international corporation. Well done. With voucher in hand, I was standing in fromt of Crap-Mart's dish rack display in the housewares section. I had a choice between 2 Rubbermaid dishracks,
another rubber coated rack, which I already knew has a defective communist chinese coating on it that just won't last, or a shiny stainless steel looking rack. Not much of a choice, however, since I had to make a choice, I opted for the shiny stainless steel looking one.
It obviously was not quality stainless steel, because in less than 4 months it started to rust!!!!! Why won't anything last?
We are talking about ordinary household use of the dish rack. I place wet dishes on the rack, they dry in short order and I put the dishes up. The rack stands empty for a while until I wash another round of dirty dishes. This doesn't sound like more than should be expected of a simple metal dishrack, does it?
