Dish Doctor


A 1997 design by Marc Newson who said of it, "I controlled every aspect of this project, even the packaging, and it was an instant hit. It used rapid prototyping technology to go virtually straight from the screen to tooling without any modifications. It is made from the same polypropylene as ordinary dishracks, but Magis' production standards are so high that the finish is beautiful."


15.35"W x 18"L x 4"H.

Yeah. My thoughts exactly. Germs lurking in a few months.

I had this dish rack years ago and it was one of the more colossal failures in my kitchen. My wife still gives me grief about the decision. You see, we don't have a dish washer (hence the need for a dish rack) and without a dishwasher to clean this, it can't be cleaned. It is downright impossible to get to the little particles of grime in the multitude of crevices down between those spokes. Also a problem, water invariably drips over the edges during dish washing and collects under this poorly conceived (but good looking) item. I persevered and hung on to the item for as long as I could because it cost a whopping $75.00, but when we pitched it and got traditional wooden rack, it was bliss.
If you are like me and wash your dishes by hand, steer clear of this sparkling example of "function following form".
