I have quite a lot of counter space these days but I still like this rack, because no matter how much space you have, it never seems to be enough.
This drying rack would have been really handy back when I lived in that tiny little trailer with almost no counter space in the kitchen at all.
The top holds my plates easily and it can also hold the lids off the serving bowls and fry pans.
The bottom holds the small glasses and cups.
When you don’t need it you can fold it up and stick it behind a door or under the sink. I really like that. After all there is no reason to have it out unless you are actually washing dishes.
I’m thinking of using one of these racks as a cabinet organizer too. For all my lids, that tend to end up in a pile in the cabinet.
