Amazon Find: Koroda Roll Up Dish Drying Rack

I’ve never been a fan of a countertop dish rack, they take up prime counter space and never look neat. However, having a dish drying rack would be really convenient, especially for a quick wash up in the morning. I always have my juice glass, and Dean has his Bialetti moka pot and cup. Having a place to put them would be great, without having to dry them and put them away.

One day I was browsing Instagram and saw this drying rack. Could it be the answer to my drying rack woes? I went on Amazon and read through the reviews, looked at the pictures, and thought for $25.00 US, Prime free shipping, and free returns, I had nothing to lose!

It arrived the first week of January, and we’ve been using it since. It is great because it takes up very little space, is easy clean, and is small enough that it doesn’t allow for clutter.
