Dish rack & dish drainers
The dish drainer and dish drying rack are the quiet achievers of the kitchen. The clever dish racks speed up drying time by keeping your dishes, utensils, pots and pans separate to maximize drainage and airflow. If a dishwashing rack takes up too much space, try a dish drying mat that can be folded away and stored for later.
Save space with a dish rack
When you only have so much counter space around your sink, make the most of it with dish drying racks that add convenience while helping you maximize space. Find multi-tiered dish drainers in different configurations to fit your needs while complementing modern décor elements in your kitchen through sleek stainless steel. Or call upon the rustic look of durable bamboo plate holders as a dish drying rack that strikes the look of modern Nordic décor.

Don’t have much counter space to work with? No problem when you have several options in drain board space savers. Choose a foldable dish drying rack that can be stored out of the way when you’re done with it. Or select an over the sink dish washing rack that can double as a colander, or a dish drainer that can hang from or be mounted to the wall over your kitchen counter. Find options with removable trays for collecting water as well anti-slip feet to prevent sliding on your counter.
Put down smart mats to keep your kitchen clean
Select kitchen mats in black, neutral pastel green or blue made of food-approved plastic for easy clean-ups in the sink or along the counter when prepping vegetables.

They can also protect the surface of your sink from wear while adding a softer layer between your sink and the delicate cutting edge of chef’s knives.
