A Workhorse Drain Rack that Looks Good, Too

By Shelley Wiseman, Senior Food Editor

April 16th, 2013

With all the cooking that goes on in our test kitchen, there are lots of dishes to do. We've tried a number of drain racks over the years and this is the first one we've really liked.

Made by simplehuman, the steel-frame dish rack has a smart design. Among its many thoughtful details is a bamboo-topped knife holder with slots for everything from a chef's knife to paring knives. Its off side wire system for holding wine glasses is a clever way to keep them out of the fray of pots, pans, and dishes. The rack itself is large enough to hold baking sheets and is good-looking, too, made of sleek (and hygienic) dark gray plastic and stainless steel. It's held above the counter by adjustable legs so that no mildew-producing moisture gets trapped underneath. Smartest of all is its drainage system, which funnels water to a spout that extends over the sink. The spout swivels to drain from either the short or the long side, allowing it to fit with almost any sink design.
