Several items on the list were no longer available, and a couple posed quality concerns. We removed all from the rankings.
We emphasized the neutral, minimalist design of the Kohler Holder, which allows it to blend in well with the decor of most kitchens. Noted that the Oenophilia Fusion (which can also hold a decanter) is now only available in two sizes, not three. We adjusted the listing for the SmitCo Organizer, mentioning that it comes with attractive little button caps to hide the heads of screws.
Whether or not you want your rack to look ornamental will play a role in the style of rack you’ll gravitate toward. If you value function above all else, a utilitarian model like the Simplehuman Grey or Superiore Livello (both of which accommodate other items, like dishware, in addition to glasses) will probably make the most sense. Options like the MyGift Countertop or SmitCo Organizer are more appropriate as decor pieces.
The Bafvt Hanger seems to be a nice choice for those interested in a subtle yet stylish rack that won’t take up counter space. Compact but strong, it can be installed under most cabinets or shelves without using screws.
