I live in an apartment with only a small kitchenette. This means that counter space is a hot commodity. I can either have a drying rack for my dishes or a spot to put my coffee maker. That is until I found this roll up drying rack. I can now dry my dishes right above the sink and then when I’m done, I just roll it up and stick it in a drawer. It is also heat resistant and can double for a mat for hot pots or bakeware on a countertop.
