I've been using a KitchenAid counter top drainer that I picked up at a thriftstore for $3 (minus the cutlery cup) but it's done well for the last 6 months. I started researching dish racks/drainers because I'm hoping to find something can collapse and be stored easily when not in use. Although I like the look and design of the Simple Human - the price was more than I wanted to spend...I did find this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBbykNaBx6c&feature=related and this one: http://youtu.be/VIV2N9xaFAg Although I do like the collapsible feature of the one by Progressive - I like the design of the High and Dry dish rack. My search continues - but thought I'd share these while I was thinking of it.

GREAT Post! Thanks! @ livaca: I live in California where grapefruits are plentiful, but alas, I too, would not waste one on cleaning. @ Ernickam and Emmi: I use Dr. Bonner's for dishwashing - my mom also...I have no complaints.

@ ren: I hear ya! I don't 'cook' per say with my microwave - but it does pull it's weight in my house for jobs just like melting butter bringing 1 C of H20 to boil - Much more efficient! Re: gas vs. electric - all I can say is I wish I had gas...(on the stove that is!)

@ lime: Excellent re: Kinko's - who knew?? @ Annuin: thanks for the research on the scale! I have a scale - but I'm not super fond of it; need to do some comparisons. @ elizabeth188: I agree re: ingredients by weight, but alas you can just do the conversion - lots of conversion calculators on the Internet. With regards to Silpat vs. parchment - I have both. I got the Silpat for free and tried - but I'm still not sold on the whole silicone stuff - I'm not found of "plastic" but then again am all for "renew, reuse, recycle" concepts and parchment isn't reuseable - so I guess on that matter it's a toss up! Food scraper, eh? I don't have one - haven't used one but it sounds like I need to check 'em out!
