Introduction

Here is a procedure any home handyman can follow if you are breaking glasses in the dish washer. Mine break because they have no stable base to stand on, with support wires spaced too far apart. They fall on each other, they break.

The Plan is to purchase 2 baking racks with 1cm square holes. Try Meyers.

We will cut each to half floor size of the top Dish Washer drawer. Once in place we will have reduced the support wire hole size which caused the glasses to become unstable fall over and break.

Cost of the total project is 2 X $8 for the baking racks plus $20 for powder coating the finished product.

measure first and choose racks that over fit half the drawer space. Now its important before cutting you decide the TOP. You must place the racks so as to make the left to right cross wires sit ON TOP of the long run wires. This helps glasses not to slide down to the front. Angle grind the surplus edge off each rack. Keep one for middle rack.

Racks must fit flat and stable. Put the legs in a vice and flatten them straight if they cannot drop through the support wires. The middle drawer section is 2 holes shorter on my machine.  Notice the cutout in the middle piece to allow a raised drawer support to sit up into.

Without Powder Coating the racks will rust and stain all your crockery. Even paint will rub off and stain. My black racks got powder coated white and all rust was removed. See final glass standing upright by itself.
