1Easylife Store Dish Drying Rack
The best dish-rack has to take up as little space in your kitchen as possible and store as many dishes as you regularly use and this rack has all that. Its greatest advantage is the sturdiness of the tubes from top to bottom that allows it to hold up to 50lbs of weight so you don’t have to worry about things coming down. The dishes go to the top tier which can hold up to 17 of them. The lower tiers will hold glasses, pots and pans as well as tins and cups depending on what you want to store. Each tier also has its own drain-tray which is removable so that wet dishes on top tiers don’t cause a mess below. Everything can also be disassembled for cleaning. The greatest additions are the cutting board holder and cutlery holders on the sides.

The rack is multipurpose and it can be adjusted to hold anything in your kitchen from dinner dishes to pots. It also comes with extra storage on the side for your cutlery. It has soft legs that won’t scratch your countertops while in use. Despite being a single-tier rack, the top is designed to be multipurpose so you can fit in more items than most single-tier racks.
