Dish-Drying Racks That Don’t Hog Counter Space

Cleverly concealed in cabinets or mounted in or above the sink, these racks cut kitchen cleanup time without creating clutter Full Story

It's not as common here in the states.... but my European clients requested a dish drying cupboard be integrated into the kitchen design. I had the bottom of a standard wall cabinet cut out and installed 2 ikea drying racks inside. I then asked the countertop installers to grind grooves and a slight slant into the granite allowing water dripping from the drying cabinet to run directly into the sink.

Living in Italy I see drying racks above the sink all the time. I have one too and it is so practical - the top half is for the plates we use every day and saucepan lids and the bottom half is for glasses and smaller items.
I have had a dshwasher, or two in the past, but it takes so much time to load and unload the dishes, whereas washing everything by hand is much quicker. And saucepans get the attention they need too. How many of us have put a saucepan in the dishwasher only to be less than happy with the result?

I can no longer find the white wire "shoe racks" that we modified to make our dish drainer, but the combination of wire rack above an old white sink with a built in drainboard has worked superbly for 14 years. You just swipe off the sink after you do the dishes, and you're done. We only store constantly used dishes here, but I go for bright rainbow colored glass in front of the window for sparkle.
