Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Holds an amazing amount of water - much easier to keep clean than a traditional plastic drying rack, and easier to tuck away out of sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and unobtrusive! Love this dish drying mat! It is the perfect thing to place next to the sink for items that need to be hand washed. I previously used dish towels but they always looked messy and were wet or damp. This mat absorbs the water and items air dry quickly and can be put away. I returned to the store and bought two more. Both colors are nice but the gray disappears and is hardly noticed on the granite counter top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I use these on both sides of the kitchen counter, they don't take up much space, but fit everything. I even bought them for the entire fam. Easy clean-up, just throw in the wash and it's like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Profile Drying Love these low profile drying mats. They take up little space compared to a rack. Easy cleanup in washer. Now I don't have look at bulky drying rack or try to store it under the sink. Wish I had gotten these a long time ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use this instead of an ugly dish rack I bought this as an alternative to the ugly dish rack. I love it for drying pots and other large items. I really love that after I am done with it, I can put it away in a drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice to have I have this in grey. I used to use a dish towel to put wet dishes after washing (those that don't go in the dishwasher), but this is far better and looks great on my black/grey quartz countertops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Kitchen Needs This This product is so practical. It doesn't have to be set right by the sink to drain like the hard plastic drainers. I've never had any water leak. It just absorbs everything. The mat also folds up for easy storage under the sink. I highly recommend owning several of these for the holidays when you need a place to dry a lot dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I saw that my sister had something very similar (if not the same thing) and bought one for myself. This is perfect. I haven't gotten it really wet but it dries quickly and does its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great absorbtion! Son and daughter-in-law use these to dry the hand washed bottles for the triplets!!! They absorb the moisture better than anything I've seen. Bought one for Christmas and they sent me back to get another because they liked it so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This! I love this for the holidays when I have many larger dishes/pans to wash/dry. I just keep this folded under my sink and pull it out to expand where I can let things drip dry. It soaks up water great so no puddles. It's also easy to wash!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Gem! For years, we've been searching for a dish drainer that is big enough for drying pots and pans, plastic wear and large utensils. I think we finally found our answer with this drying mat AND it doesn't cost a fortune. It fits perfectly beside our sink, has plenty of room for drying pots, pans, plastic wear and large knives and utensils. My husband is even happy with the new drying mat because we don't have to worry about whether the lip of the drainer is near the sink or at the right angle to properly allow the items to dry. I'm recommending this to all my friends, family and organizing clients, but would suggest buying 2 or 3 so you'll always have one available while you're washing the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love in my kitchen! I originally purchased the gray mat for my kitchen. I use it with the bamboo folding dish rack. It is super absorbent and not an eyesore. My only problem is that I had to purchase the XL size to fit the rack WITH the utensil holder. The XL mat isn't available in gray, which is the color I originally got because it matches my counters better. Its not terrible, but I would prefer it in the gray!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Purchase I purchased one of these mats in the store this summer to make more room for air drying dishes around my farmhouse sink. I ordered two more to use as drying mats for wet shoes and anything else I need to air dry. I like the gray color the best. They wash and dry beautifully. It seems I have something on all three of them at all times since I got them. I wish they made one about half the size of the small ones I got.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient Is so easy to use and size is perfect for a small counter top. The color is very unique, so in over all is very convenient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Moldy Mat I'm very unhappy with this product. We have been using the mat for about a month. It's on our granite countertop with the bamboo dish drainer on it. IT HAS GROWN MOLD ON IT! This is disgusting. I washed it - it's still there. I washed it again with bleach and hot water. It's still there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! Who needs a hideous big dish drying rack on your counter? Use this minimalist dish drying mat. I love mine. I use my dishwasher everyday (once a day) but this is great for the spare glass, etc. It's also great when you want to hand wash a delicate item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design! I have a hanging dish dryer but I have always struggled to find a good drip tray. This fits perfectly, is washable, absorbs much more water than the traditional drip tray and with less mess! Wish I found this years ago!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product though there is spotting I love using this drying mat for my dishes. It dries items fast and the mat dries fast. My only complaint is that it stains easily and it doesn't wash out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find! I have always used kitchen towels to set hand-washables on, but this looks & works better. Love the cushioned mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Great for under a drained or nit! Valuable if you have granite counters; eliminates slipping and sliding around

Does it have a LOOP to hang it from?

Does this Dish Drying Mat have a loop on the side so that you can hang it from a hook to air dry?

The Dish Drying Mat does not have a hanging loop.
