Decluttering Help - Dish Rack on counter vs. sink, folding vs. no
I'm trying to decide between having a dish rack on our meager countertop and if so whether to have a folding one (and if so which model), OR having an over-the-sink dishrack/drainer - or perhaps even using the grids on our new Kraus 60/40 double undermount sink as in-sink dishracks. Do people do that?
We tend to be cluttered, hand-washing plastic and stainless steel pots/pans (and I just posted about that issue), and when we have the classic dish rack with drainer next to the sink, the hand-washed items stack up and it's just a big clutter-fest in and around the sink.
Help! I really need to change our system by finding a way to put more dishes in the dishwasher (we just bought an entry level Miele), or having an in-sink drying rack, or a folding countertop rack - something where we have more use of our new countertop in our smallish NYC kitchen.
It's a white/stainless steel kitchen so any racks we get have to be white and/or stainless steel, it'll look way better. Unless we just use the grids in the sink and call it done.
Thanks for any suggestions!
