In order to start talking about the varieties of this subject, let's first analyze what it is.
Objects for drying dishes are different. There are built-in wardrobe, there are detached. They are classified in many ways.
Each such thing in the kitchen consists of completely independent departments. There are departments for storing cups, for storing dishes. Each part of this department should be made of durable material so that the dryer does not fall apart from the volume of dishes placed in it to dry.There are some types of kitchen cabinets that are simply mounted on the wall above the sink or installed on the surface. The positive feature of such kitchen items is that they can be placed anywhere. They are supplied with a special tray where water will be drained after washing dishes. They are the cheapest at the price, unpretentious.
Convenient solution for the kitchen
Such vessels are divided into several types:
- Single tierwhich are intended for salad bowls and small plates.
- Bunk. They are designed to dry the bowls separately from the plates.
- Combined. On them it is possible to dry any kitchen appliance from a ladle to large plates.
Another type of dishware is recessed. They are attached to the walls of the cabinet through plastic fasteners. There are cabinets with dryers for dishes, both at the top and bottom. And if the apartment has a dishwasher, then the dryer under the bottom of the sink is the most convenient of all.
Creative option for the dryer
The materials that are used in the manufacture of glassware are varied. This may be the usual plastic, which is considered the simplest. From it mainly create the dishes, which are placed on the working surface. And for embedded dryers use metal from stainless alloys. Other metals are used, but they are covered with a layer of anti-corrosion coating. As a result, neither moisture nor any other aggressive substance affects them.Plastic is the most non-durable material. In addition, he quickly loses its original appearance. It is easily scratched, can break from any wrong action.
Another type of material, however, already obsolete, for the manufacture of dryers is wood.
This is the most expensive material. From the past centuries it has been considered a sign of luxury and wealth. In the production of wooden vessels, they are covered with a layer of moisture-proof material. Therefore, they, like metal, are not affected by water.
Dryer with a convenient drain for water
And before buying any of the kitchen utensils you need to measure the place where it will be. So that later there are no problems. A department for cups should be on top of the plates. Since the water from the plates after washing will drain into the cups, if they will be below and again pollute them.return to menu ↑
Drying cabinet 60 cm
Ambulances are classified by:
- type of material;
- by tiers;
- in size.
For example, you cannot put a dryer eighty centimeters long in a closet with a much smaller size. Or, conversely, a small dryer length in a large closet. It will at least not look aesthetically pleasing.. Therefore, it is important to choose the exact size. Especially if you order a dryer to order.
What is the advantage of such dryers and small cabinets? They are compact, do not take up much space. They look pretty solid and neat.
Semicircular, convenient option
What you need to know for mounting such a dryer in the closet? The place where this dryer will be should be well ventilated. That is, the cabinet must have a high-quality exhaust hole. Or you can drill two small holes on the drying side to maintain a constant air flow. Thus, moisture and different odors will accumulate less inside. So the dishes will always be clean and tidy.For such a dryer necessarily need a pallet. This is the thing where the water will flow while drying dishes. It is usually made of plastic so that it is easy to pull out and wash. But there are still chrome.
The pallet needs weekly maintenance.
Otherwise, it will accumulate dirt and various pathogenic bacteria, which is not only unpleasant for the owners who use this dryer, but also unhealthy.
Such dryers are made mostly of metal. They are coated with an anti-corrosion layer so that the material does not rust during use.
The kit consists of a dryer for cups, for plates and a pallet. Such a dryer weighs together about one kilogram. Together with the plates in it, of course, add weight. Therefore, the cabinet must be well fixed on the wall so as not to fall from the weight of the dishes that will be placed in it.There should be a height of at least thirty centimeters between the shelf for the plates and the level for the cups so that large plates can fit.
On the walls of the cabinet should be strong fasteners: either small plastic corners or metal pins. On them the vessel will fasten. They should sit tight in the cabinet holes. This is done so that, under the weight of the dishes, the dryer does not fall and does not break all the other dining items.
Convenient storage of your dishes
In such a vessel fit up to eighteen plates. If you live in a big house, where guests constantly gather, parties are arranged, then it is better to choose a larger vessel, respectively, for a larger number of cutlery.return to menu ↑
In the wardrobe 80 cm
These dryers will already differ from those discussed above in size and weight. They are more powerful, voluminous. They are installed in standard kitchen cabinets. The capacity of these vessels is equal to twenty-eight plates.Such items for drying dishes are also two-tier. That is, the first level is created for storing and drying cups, cutlery, and the second for plates. They are mounted on a spring mount, which allows you to easily remove them, easy to wear.
Sliding Cabinet Option
The tray must be removable or retractable to make it easier to wash. Those who choose large sizes for cabinets, of course, should be aware that the price of such vessels will be appropriate.
The pallet will not be a plastic one, but a metal one with a special coating to protect it from moisture.Between the shelf for plates and the shelf for cups, the height of the free space must be at least thirty centimeters. This is done so that even large plates fit into the closet. It is strictly forbidden to overload such structures if you do not want to buy dining sets every month.
If the vessel measuring sixty centimeters in size can still be placed in a sliding wardrobe, then at eighty it will hardly work. Therefore, such vessels are made only for stationary cabinets.
Although, the current masters are able to do everything. RWhen choosing, make sure that the dryer is made with high quality. If it is installed in a sliding wardrobe, then it must be exactly the same size as the plates, so that the plates and cups do not interfere with it when opening and closing.return to menu ↑
This type of vessel is the best purchase for those who love hygiene, aesthetics, durability, ergonomics.
Firstly, a stainless steel dryer permanently saves you from seeing rust after prolonged use of conventional dryers.. Since plastic dryers quickly break down, and metallic, though not immediately, but the layer to protect against moisture gradually becomes thinner or due to mechanical stress during use.Rust first captures one small edge, and then spreads over the entire surface, eating the structure. This item is covered with chrome, which gives it extra shine and beauty.
When opening the cabinet doors, such a thing will always please the eyes, and the plates that stand in it will ideally fit into the atmosphere created by the chrome-plated product.

Pallets must fit the size of the vessel itself.. You will never be sold a dryer of sixty centimeters, and a tray from an object for drying dishes of eighty centimeters. Pallets should be covered with special products that protect them from mold and various fungal microorganisms.
Use a drip tray
There are special mats-pallets. At the same time they serve as a vessel, a device for collecting drops from dishes. Such items are usually sold separately. They are needed as an additional device for drying glasses, cups, and other cutlery.They are placed next to the sink on the bedside table. During washing, clean dishes folded on it until it dries, and then retracted in the closet. Then the water that they have accumulated pours into the sink, and it must be rinsed with a sponge with dishwashing liquid so that various harmful microorganisms do not accumulate in it.

Varieties of dryers with sizes
Above, we figured out with built-in dryers, which sizes are suitable for which cabinets. We learned what these items are made of. Now let's deal more seriously with the size.
The main dimensions of the dryers are as follows:
- Five hundred millimeters.
- Six hundred millimeters.
- Seven hundred millimeters.
- Eight hundred millimeters.
These sizes are used everywhere and are considered standard. These dimensions are calculated according to the width of the kitchen unit. For example, if a cupboard has dimensions of six hundred millimeters wide (or sixty centimeters), then, accordingly, the vessel will also fit these dimensions.The depth of these items is two hundred and eighty millimeters. This is the usual standard size of the depth of the kitchen unit. If it has greater depth, then some technique will be additionally built into it.
Choose quality material
These are the dimensions of the built-in vessels. But there are others who simply serve as part of the decor and perform a useful function. Such items for drying can be made of any size.There are thirty centimeter, forty centimeter. For small in size carry detached vessels. Or they are also called troflex. Such troflexes can also be single-tier or two-tier.

They are good for those who do not like moisture to accumulate in the closet. And the material from which it is made, as a result of constant exposure to moisture, is deformed.

And the built-in types themselves are divided into several types of dryers. Each view is called because, the place and the functions that the kitchen module performs.
Thus, there are standard dryers. Which are located inside the hinged module directly above the sink where the dishes are washed. These dryers are not always convenient.. First, if the housewife is small in stature, then she can hardly reach the very top where the cups are. To substitute a chair or to ask the husband to constantly help put cups in place is also absent. And if a person is tall, he will constantly bury his head in this closet when washing dishes.There are two more types of dryers and kitchen modules. It is angular and retractable.

Having considered all kinds of dishes, let's more carefully move on to the last part of this article. Namely, what kind of dryer to purchase - from two levels or single level.
Option for a large number of dishesreturn to menu ↑
A two-tier dishware bowl is the best choice for housewives. It can be folded plates, cups, spoons. When buying such a vessel, the main thing is to look at how well it is made of what material. For mounted dryers usually use a metal alloy with a coating of enamel or with the application of anti-corrosion substances. Thick dishes with a twig will be better able to withstand the weight, the number of plates and cups placed on it, in comparison with the flimsy twigs.The construction of plastic, whether it is a two-tier or single-level, it is better to install on a table or a special tabletop. They are suitable for installation on a department for washing dishes that was specially created by the manufacturer.
When buying a two-tier vessel, it is necessary to pay attention to the distance between the first and second level. As with a small distance, the large plates you simply do not fit in the departments specially created for them.
For shelves without doors
It is desirable that the dish was made of thick stainless rods. Then the long service life of such a thing and its strength are provided to you.Two-level vessels can be hung on the wall as a separate part of the decor. They will look great and complement the kitchen set with their aesthetic appearance. Especially if it is made of chrome steel or metal of the upper class, which we wrote about above.
Also, vessels of this type can be embedded. They fit easily into corner kitchen units, front cabinets, drawers.. They are much better than simple ones with one level for drying dishes. Since they allow to accommodate a large number of different dishes.
Similar lighting serves as a decoration of the kitchen.return to menu ↑ return to menu ↑
So, when choosing a dish, any housewife should pay attention primarily to:
- Sizes of the vessel. Since it depends on them how much kitchen items will fit into it. And also in what closet it will fit. You can not buy a pottery larger than or smaller than the cabinet that you have.
- Acquire such a thing only from reputable companies.. This will reduce the cost of buying unexpectedly broken substandard dishware purchased from an unknown or first-time, and not yet reputable company.
- Pay attention to what this dish is made of.. Chrome, enameled or generally simple steel, which can rust next year. The latter kind of course is not worth buying. And you define a chrome-plated alloy by its solid appearance and gloss.
Unusual but practical
- When buying a vessel you need to look at the size and thickness of the rods.. It depends on them how much weight will sustain this item.
- You must immediately pay attention to the presence of a pallet.. And if it is not included, then it is better to buy it. Pallet is better to buy chrome metal. Unlike plastic, it will last longer. Of course, for dishwashers that will serve as part of the decor and stand on the sink, the fact that it is without a tray will not lead to anything scary. Since all the water will flow down into the sink. But if you buy a built-in container, then you cannot do without a pallet. Otherwise, the remaining moisture on the dishes will fall on the wood of the cabinet and deform its surface.
Of course, choose what kind of pot you buy the case for an amateur.
But it is important to remember that for built-in dishes in the kitchen module it is necessary to introduce good ventilation.
In extreme cases, drill holes in the walls of the cabinet. This way you will not be disturbed by mold and unpleasant smell. In this case, external vessels that are installed on the wall or on the sink would be the best option. As the mold does not accumulate, water either gets on the pallet, or leaves at once in a sink. No odor will spread. Because the dish is open and the dishes literally instantly dry out.
The disadvantages of external vessels include inconvenience in use.. On the sink they can fall if they are inadvertently touched with a large object or pan. And the wall can also be damaged. In addition, all the dishes in sight, and if there are flies, insects or cats at home, this will lead to poor sanitation.
Advantages of sliding vessels - invisibility. They are located in a closet that retracts. Thus, he does not interfere with any housewife or other relatives. And also hidden from pets and insects.
Guided by these pros and cons, you can now choose for yourself one of all existing types of vessels that we have analyzed in this article.return to menu ↑
