I guess the folks at Rubbermaid who redesigned this drain board must all have newly-built or renovated kitchens. The picture on this item's label depicts it being used on a granite countertop next to a bottom-mount sink. You'll need to meet these conditions if you want this thing to perform as it should.
I purchased the large, clear board to replace a 10-year old Rubbermaid board in Almond color. The old drain board was made of rubber, or at least a rubberized plastic, as you'll see mentioned in other reviews. This new one is definitely stiffer, more like the plastic in Rubbermaid's food containers. My old board still worked, but had acquired a few rust stains over the years, and the dish rack's feet had sunk into the board. I kept my old dish rack as it was still in like-new condition. The one pro I would have for this item is the old rack's feet fit the grooves of the new board perfectly.
But, I have nothing but cons for the rest of this review. In the spirit of saving a few cents, Rubbermaid has downsized the overall dimensions of the new board so that the ledge that drains into your sink is an inch shorter than the old model. Also, the tilted base underneath the board has a lower profile, in both height and slope. I have a drop-in stainless sink on a laminate countertop. This new board barely passes the outer lip of the sink, whereas the old board protruded all the way to the curve-in for the sink's tub. On the test drive, I found this board slid around far too easily, and while the water did drain into the sink, drops rolled under the board lip. Thank God I got the clear one and noticed this. I didn't give it enough time to accumulate before I was wiping the lip off, so I can't comment on how bad the accumulation was. But should you slide this board a millimeter or so while using it, expect to wipe up a spill afterwards. Any water on the counter, in my book, is a no-go.
The model down-sizing not only affected the draining lip, but the overall dimensions of the board suffered enough that any glasses hung on the outer glass hangers won't have any board underneath to catch water. As soon as I finished my dishes on that first run, I was cleaning my old board to put it back into service. Had they carried this new board in Almond to match my dish rack, I probably would modify it to meet my needs by improving the height and slope of it, as well as make it drain into my sink, but it's going back.
