This Over-the-Sink Drying Rack Will Save You a Ton of Countertop Space
Say goodbye to random puddles of water on your countertop.
It's surprising how quickly my kitchen countertop can become cluttered with stuff. From appliances like blenders and espresso makers to random mail and cookbooks, I never seem to have space on my countertop for the items I use on a daily basis, like a drying rack. Luckily, I've found the solution to my clutter problem with Food52's Over-the-Sink Drying Rack.
This drying rack sits over the sink, so you can save space on your counter (Food52, $45). All you have to do is roll the rack over one edge of your sink and you're good to go. The silicone-coated stainless steel ensures that the mat won't slip from its spot while you load it up with dishes. It includes a removable section for utensils, which can also be used as a colander for washing produce like grapes or berries.
You can choose from three color options—smoked salt, peppercorn or slate blue—any of which would look great in your kitchen. The best part about the drying rack is that you can roll it up and store it in a drawer when it's not in use. When you need to clean the rack, you can put it in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. The rack measures at 20.5 inches wide, so make sure to measure your sink before buying.
And if you want to save even more space in your kitchen, the drying rack can also act as a trivet or cooling rack for baked goods. I love any product that can be used multiple ways, and this over-the-sink drying rack certainly fits the bill.
