Collapsible Dish Drainer - The One To Get

Updated on August 2, 2015

Collapsible Dish Drainer For Your Kitchen Sink

It is not often that you will come across a collapsible dish drainer, one that would allow you to store it in your cabinet when not in use. Most of the dish drainers would take the form of a squarish plastic tub that sits on the kitchen counter, taking up valuable space. So, to have something that can be folded up and stored away is certainly a nice change.

The Progressive International Collapsible Over the Sink Dish Drainer is one that deserves a good look. It pops open when you need it to dry your dishes and collapses down to 2/3 rd of its height for easy storage thereafter.

The Features Of This Collapsible Dish Drainer

Apart from being foldable, this also works as a over-the-sink dish drainer. It has arms that extend all the way to about 26 to 27 inches to fit the length of most kitchen sinks. When collapsed, the Progressive International dish drainer measures about 1.5 inches in height which means you can fit it easily under the sink cabinet for storage.

When opened up, the drainer can hold up to 8 plates at one time. Plates as large as 10 inches in diameter should be able to fit in. The size of the dish drainer is about 16 inches in length and 12 inches in width. Its height when extended is about 6 inches. There is also a removable silverware tray and it offers the convenience of being dish-washer safe too.

The Benefits Of Having This Dish Drainer

For people with a small kitchen, every little inch of countertop space counts. So, this is a very practical compact dish drying rack for small spaces because of its collapsible feature. If you don't need it, you can just put it away rather than having to make space for it on your countertop. On top of that, it goes over the sink which means no cluttering up of your countertop at all when it is in use.

There is also flexibility with the removable silverware tray. If you need more space for plates, that can be taken out to free up more space. There will always be moments when you need a bigger interior for a few more plates and pans and this flexibility certainly helps.
