Looking for the perfect small dish rack for your small kitchen? If you only have a little bit of countertop space next to your sink for a dish rack, and you need something compact yet sturdy that won't break under the weight of a few dozen dishes, then we've found just the thing.

Our pick? The Mini Wire Frame Dish Rack from simplehuman ($25). This long, narrow dish drainer is only 9.6" wide, yet it can fit full-size dinner plates and hold a ton if you stack it just right.

Its slightly larger cousin — the Compact Wire Frame Dish Rack ($35, shown in the first photo) — is also a solid small-space pick, but it's five inches wider, so if you only have a wee bit of countertop space for a dish rack, the Mini is the way to go. We also love the pivoting pour spout that drains water right back into the sink. Such a smart detail!
