Since Mrs. Maiju Gebhard launched her idea in 1945 of the Drying Cabinet for Dishes, the Finns have used it. The hand-washed dishes, pots and pans are rinsed and left to dry above the kitchen sink. This has remained merely a Finnish oddity, also seen somewhere in Sweden and Italy. Not all the households have dishwashers, not everything can be washed in them. Once everything is dry, you replace them into their original place. No need to dry anything by hand.
Expandable Over The Sink Shelf
Expandable Over The Sink Shelf--got a bamboo version of this. Really makes a big different in the kitchen and in the small space we have. Wish I had purchased a prettier one---like this one--but what I got gets the job done. Plus, we have a small pull-out basket for sponges and such with ours, so I can't complain THAT much!
