My only concerns with the Oxo mat are:
* You do need to regularly wipe underneath the mat and the mat's underside. I have granite countertops, so this is important for both the life of my counter and to reduce microbial build-up. I do this at least every time I put away the dishes. I also use my Granite cleaner weekly in the same spot and let it dry fully before replacing the mat.
* Water in the wells usually needs to be shaken out before the mat will dry.
* Be careful when placing flutes; make sure to balance them along the ribs.
* The mats are a bit small, so you may need more than one. But that also means you get to have them in two different places...which is nice.
I use this mat:
* Everyday for non-dishwasher pots/pans, knives, crystal stemware, & glasses
* To place hot cast iron lids on while cooking
* To place very warm pots from stove
I use this mat BECAUSE:
* It takes less room & commitment than a permanent dish rack
* Dries dishes, especially glasses, better than microfiber mats
* It is easy to clean
* It doubles as a trivet
After using it for several months, I still like it. A few reservations:
- It's not huge. I'd have like it 25% bigger, but this is the biggest one I could find available.
- It doesn't drain into the sink like a rack or the mat under a rack would. I'm fine with that, but that means it collects water and needs to be dumped occasionally.
- Because it's silicone, the underside of it never seems to dry. In fact, it's always damp and slimy underneath when I lift it to clean or drain.
- Nice grip to it. I use it to lean cutting boards and cookie sheets up against the wall to dry, and they never slip. Stays in place on my counter next to my sink.
- Dishwasher safe, though I haven't needed to clean it yet.
- Looks great - when I put the dried dishes away, looks like an extension of the sink.
- Easily movable if you need more counter space for prep work.
*addendum: also think items should not be dripping when placed on these mats because it doesn't allow drying of items well when you sit it flush on the mat. Despite the crevices embedded into the mat, it's not enough air circulation and I still see moisture the next morning on the bottom of mugs/bowls, pots etc. best to just lay things in a way so that air can circulate all around. Also, water doesn't easily evaporate from the mat either and requires shaking off from time to time. However, I like how it's ribbed and it's made of silicone to act as friction against fragile items that I feel would otherwise slip right off when I lean them at an angle on the mats.
All in all, it's made a good spot for a secondary drying station after my conventional dish drying rack.
