Prepworks by Progressive Collapsible Over-The-Sink Dish Drainer
If you cook it, they will come. Dirty dishes, that is.
Even though 83 percent of readers we polled use a dishwasher, 96 percent still wash some dishes in the sink. Enter the dish drying rack, used to contain and prop up wet dishes so air can circulate around them. While dish racks are not the most exciting kitchen purchase, lately we’ve noticed a few manufacturers trying to change their dutiful image. Flashy new racks have features like knife blocks, swiveling drain spouts, or wineglass holders, while others use sleek stainless-steel or eye-catching minimalist designs. Flash aside, do any improve on the basic wire basket/plastic mat combo?
Progressive Prepworks Collapsible Over-The-Sink Dish Drainer
WINNER - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This smart collapsible rack is too small for a pile of pots and pans but readily fit smaller items. It folds flat for easy storage and can be used on the counter (on a dishcloth) or suspended over the sink, thanks to expandable arms. It’s the best choice for small spaces or light loads.
