I have limited space in my kitchen. What kind of drying rack should I buy?


Worry not; those of us with limited kitchen space can still manage to squeeze in some drying space, thanks to several designs that are friendly to small kitchens. Low-profile choices like drying racks that sit low to the counter can make your space seem less cluttered. If your counter space is at a premium, you might want to try an over-the-sink dish drainer. Some styles are even collapsible, which makes it that much easier to store them when your dishes are done drying. If you have a lot of plates to dry, not a lot of counter space to use and no dishwasher to speak of, an electric dish dryer might just do the trick. It speeds up the drying time because it quickly circulates hot air around the dishes.

What kind of dish drainer will work best for my dishes?


If you’re setting casual dinnerware out to dry after a scrub, any type of rack will do, be it folding, wood, metal or plastic. On the other hand, if you need a place that will safely let your fine china dry or if you have expensive everyday dishes, you’ll want to invest in a sturdy wood or metal rack.
