I purchased a Bosch for my old house that had a third rack. I absolutely loved it. The layout was very flexible and the third rack was useful for so many things such as: medicine cups, serving utensils, lids, knives that didn’t need to be hand washed, small Tupperware, etc. I often ran out of space on it.

This is an excellent article! I wish it had been available before my kitchen reno. I did two sinks, and am very happy with the results, but did not have the sharpness of focus on prep sink and clean-up sink that this article advocates (and all the subsequent decisions about storage that would follow from that). Our primary goal, though, was to have two sinks so that two cooks weren't colliding at the sinks, and we accomplished that very successfully.
