To avoid having to dry your washed dinnerware manually, you'll want to ensure that the wet crockery is open to air circulation. This dish rack by Robert Audroue goes above and beyond -- literally -- to guarantee that your dishes are able to breath.
He has designed a modular system of bent wires which can be assembled piece by piece with the help of integrated hooks. The user needs only suspend as many hangers as there are glasses, bowls and salvers, which should fit securely into the standard tongs and backings to protect the items from falling loose.
This precarious contraption is quite an effective storage solution for compact kitchens with limited countertop space. Dish Rack by Robert Audroue even avoids leaving puddles by allowing your tableware to drip directly into the sink.
