Whether you’re a messy cook or not, you need to have durable, absorbent kitchen towels on hand — and we just happen to have found the best kitchen towels out there. The Zeppoli Classic Kitchen Towels are 100 percent cotton, super absorbent, and have a timeless look that makes them obvious editor favorites. In fact, our friends at Kitchn have ranked them as the best kitchen side towels on their Kitchn Essentials: Tools Edition list for three years running! They’re the perfect towels for keeping in your back pocket while you cook because they can withstand a lot of wear and tear — and they’re on sale right now. You can get a pack of 15 towels for just $22! If your dishtowels are in need of a serious upgrade, let these be your new solution for soaking up spills, wiping your hands, drying dishes, cleaning counters, and so much more.

Several AT staffers have put these towels to the test, praising their workhorse capability, long-lasting design, amazing absorbency, and more. Because they’re made from 100 percent cotton, they’re able to soak up a large amount of liquid, making them perfect for anyone who wants to cut down on paper towel use. They’re also lightweight and dry quickly, so you won’t be left with a soggy towel on your counter. Unlike smaller dish towels and hand towels, the Zeppoli towels are built to work and can handle even large messes.

Because they’re heavy duty, these towels are great for other kitchen tasks, too, like quickly picking up a hot pan or lid. No more burning your hand through thin fabric! And when it comes time for cleanup, just toss them in the washing machine to use over and over again. We found that these towels still hold up after tons of use and washing. Cleaning tip: One of our contributors washes them on hot with detergent and bleach to get out any stubborn stains.

And don’t just take our word for it — the Zeppoli towels have nearly 16,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. Reviewers love the quality of fabric and how well the towels hold up over time. One person even mentioned how they would buy these babies again but realized (unfortunately?) that they won’t need to any time soon.

With 15 kitchen towels for under $25, we’re confident that this pack will satisfy any cleaning or drying needs while you cook. Plus, there’s the added bonus of feeling like a professional chef if you keep one over your shoulder or in your back pocket — and really, what’s better than that?
