Even if you have a dishwasher, a dish drying rack is a helpful accessory in any kitchen. Not only is a dish drying rack more convenient than hand-drying dishes, but it’s also more sanitary. Did you know that dish towels can easily grow bacteria including E. coli? Drying racks eliminate contaminated surfaces coming in contact with your dishes. These make an excellent housewarming or wedding present. Here are our favorite dish drying racks.
