10 Easy Pieces: Countertop Dish Drainers

October 9, 2013

But it took a long search to find the few that qualify as decent-looking enough to leave out on the counter.

The Yamazaki Wood Handled Dish Drainer is made of powder coated steel and walnut handles; $68 at Schoolhouse. For more on Yamazaki see Genius Low-Cost Storage Solutions from Japan.
