Earlier this week, I went to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy a new dish rack and knife block. I ended up buying the Simplehuman steel frame dish rack (pictured above) and a Henckels "super" knife block. I thought $69.99 (before the 20% off Bed Bath and Beyond coupon) for a dish rack was pretty insane, but two of my friends also recommended it so I went with it. It is quite sleek and nice looking (for a dish rack) and hopefully won't leave rust stains on my nice white dishes. The high sides are useful for keeping dishes in the rack dry while I'm washing dishes in the sink next to the rack and splashing water around, and the knife block is a great way to keep my nice knives out of the way while they are drying, although I still would hand dry knives that are longer so that the tips don't dull against the bottom. It also looks like the draining mechanism is quite sophisticated, although I haven't fully put it to the test yet. I am even excited about the Henckels knife block (I know, strange thing to be excited about); it was only $29.99 and fits all my Global knives and Henckel steak knives and poultry shears perfectly, filling 19 of the 20 slots, and is a really good deal compared to $149.99 for the matching Global knife block which I was about to purchase. All my knives are nice and secure and easily accessible, as opposed to when they were in their former home, the Kapoosh universal knife block, which was terrible: it was impossible to stick all my knives securely in the block. I like shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond; they've recently been mailing out a lot of their 20% off coupons so I've been stocking up, and it's great that they never expire. Things are generally always the cheapest at Bed Bath and Beyond after the 20% coupon, but I always shop around just in case.
