Two Tier Cast Iron Dish Rack

Two Tier Cast Iron Dish Rack

With double the amount of storage, this two-tier wrought iron dish drainer takes up 18” by 9.75” of counter space. The metal is powder-coated rust brown and requires hand washing. It comes with rubber feet to protect your laminate or solid surface counters.

Designer Advice:

The advantage of this cast iron dish rack is that it holds a good amount of dishes and has a built-in cutlery holder. While the rack isn’t rust-resistant or rust-proof, the color is already warm rust that will disguise any discoloration. To prevent any rusting, just make sure to wipe the rack dry after use. You’ll want to buy a separate drain tray to fit underneath the rack.

Vintage Iron Dish Rack

Vintage Iron Dish Rack

Vintage from before 1999, this decorative iron dish rack is 7.5” tall by 16.14” long and 11.8” wide. It features heart-shaped details and is intended to hold plates and bowls. It stands off the counter on two scrolled feet.

Designer Advice:

This vintage iron dish rack has a dusty, worn finish with a few spots of calcium deposits around the base and feet. To clean the rack before using, scrub the affected areas with a nylon scouring pad and rinse. Mix a one-to-one baking soda and white vinegar ratio and spread on the calcium spots. Leave for at least 30 minutes. Scrub clean until the white scale is completely removed.
