Nowadays, people don’t have to give much thought to dish drying, thanks to the machines more than half of us have that do the job for us. Which may explain why, for the most part, not a lot of advancement has happened in the design of dish drying racks. Or at least that’s what I thought ’til a friend’s mom unveiled this beauty from Simple Human. Not only is it cleverly designed to drain water back into your sink, it expands and contracts to suit you and your countertop’s needs. It comes with a moveable extra-shelf for those big-night jobs, removable wine glass holders and even knife block to keep the pointy tips away from hands. But its price, $80 at Williams-Sonama, does make my little Ikea dish drainer, $12, and towel seem just dandy. What about you? How do dishes get dried in your house? — Angela M.
