If you had your choice of a drying rack which has pre determined slots and spaces or one that was fully customizable and could hold all your oddly shaped baby accessories, which would you choose? I don’t think anyone would choose to be limited by the drying rack’s pre designed configurations and just about every parent would opt for the drying rack with unlimited options to organize. For any of you out there looking for the fully customizable drying rack, I will save you the time – there is only one and it’s the Grass Drying Rack from Boon Inc.
From a distance the Grass Countertop Drying Rack looks like ornamental grass popular in Mod stores and magazines, but don’t be fooled by its simple design and color scheme, this little rack is seriously awesome. It has entirely replaced the 4 other drying racks we currently own and now proudly sits to the left of my kitchen sink and will continue to do so until long after the children are sippy cup weaned.
Of course, the thing I love most about it is its unlimited configurations, but I think a close second is that this is not a “bottle drying rack” as my other racks are, but rather a drying rack for just about any small odds and ends that you can imagine. Before, when all we owned was a bottle rack, we would typically have one or two bottles on the pegs provided, but then the rest of the rack would be empty or gear would be haphazardly hung from the bottle pegs. Because the rack didn’t have space to drip dry the remainder of the baby gear, we decided to permanently keep a Tupperware container beside the rack to hold all the baby and toddler paraphernalia that didn’t have any other spot. Over the months, that container became two and then three, and still we managed to always run out of room whenever we were washing or sterilizing and the counters perpetually looked messy.
With the Grass Modern Drying Rack from Boon, we finally have found a solution to the counter clutter. We no longer have a big and bulky rack taking up precious space on our counter and not really working for us, but instead have a really slim profile rack (10” square and only 2.5” high) that can hold every little object our baby requires. An added bonus is that it looks cute and modern on our counter and doesn’t look anything like the pink and blue atrocities we used to cover our counters with.
Now, when we wash and sterilize bottles, we simply place them upside down on the rack and they stay upright over the blades of “grass” nicely. To dry nipples, bottles and more, we basically just dump them on top of the prongs of the Boon Grass and let them drip dry over the course of a day or so. The grass prongs keep the objects we are drying suspended over the water that drips off and collects in the tray below and our counters stay clean and organized. If the Grass Drying Rack were to get dirty, it is nice to know that the rack and tray are both dishwasher safe and don’t take up much room inside the dishwasher.
I love the Boon Grass Countertop Drying Rack so much that I would actually recommend it to households without children at all. It currently does more than keep our pacifiers (see plug city, left), bottles, nipples, utensils, cups and lids off the counter, it also is perfect for non-baby items, too, like freshly hand washed utensils, knives, and kitchen electronic gadgets that are not dishwasher safe.
For that reason alone, I don’t see this little drying rack going anywhere… ever. However, if we did decide to store it, it would take up a very minimal amount of space, especially since it can be stored either flat or on its side and could either stand up next to the pots and pans or it could lay on the bottom of our plastics drawer. But, don’t plan on seeing it in storage anytime soon, and sorry gals, Grass will not be part of the baby years hand-me-downs.
