The outside of my dish washer is plastic so this won't stick to it, wish it did.
Because of a comment a reviewer made, I tested my dishwasher to make sure it was able to hold a magnet. It did!! But when I received this product, it either has such a weak magnet or no magnet at all... I am currently using a separate magnet to hold the item to the dish washer. It would have been a terrific item if it actually worked as instructed. It needs to have a strong magnet inside to hold it to the dishwasher or it serves no purpose...
My fault. I didn't know my dishwasher is not metal but otherwise good.
