The Dish Rack Debate: Love or Hate Them?

The Dish Rack Debate: Love or Hate Them?

Apparently we haven't been alone in not really liking dish racks. We've been using the dishtowel method for a while now to keep the counters in our tiny kitchen clear.

For those unfamiliar, the dish towel method is simply laying a dish towel down and putting washed dishes on top of it to dry. Once they're dry, you can hang the towel to dry until the next load. No big dish rack, no big deal.

However, silverware tends to get spotty and sometimes if there are a lot of dishes, the towel gets sopping wet and frankly, a little gross. So we're considering a dishrack. Maxwell rounded up his favorites and we'd like to add Crate and Barrel's Bamboo Rack to the list. It's sturdier than Ikea's version and a little smaller. It would still take up space, but at least we can fold it away if we need to.

What method do you use?
