Editor's Notes

July 30, 2019:

The Surpahs Multipurpose lives up to its name, as it can be used as a trivet, a drying rack for dishes and vegetables, or an over-the-sink platform for a cutting board when you don't have enough counter space. Its silicone coating protects glass and ceramic cookware from scratches and prevents it from sliding around. The Silicone Designs 6-in-1, Pratico Kitchen Pratipad, and Aarcho Kitchen Pot Holders are also versatile options that can be used as coasters, jar openers, and spoon rests as well as protecting countertops from hot pans. If you prefer a more natural look, the Ecosall Hot Pads are just as decorative as they are functional, and they're made from organic beech wood that's resistant to chipping and cracking.

The Totally Bamboo 20-6628 easily adjusts from 8-3/4 inches to 11-3/4 inches wide, so it can hold large pots and casserole dishes, and it's made from organically-grown Moso bamboo, which is eco-friendly and sustainable. Its 1/2-inch thickness provides plenty of protection for delicate tables and counters. Perfect for extra large pans, or for holding several smaller ones at once, the Fox Run Expandable can extend to as wide as 18 inches. When you're not using it, it collapses for compact storage.
