compact steel frame dishrack
brushed stainless steel
with grey plastic

sku# KT1179

Our compact steel frame dishrack has a solid steel frame that matches the aesthetic of modern upscale kitchen appliances. It is small enough to make the most of limited countertop space, but still has the capacity to handle full-size plates. It has an integrated drip tray with a swivel spout that pivots in all directions so you can drain water directly into the sink from any position. A fingerprint-proof coating helps protect against smudges.

you wash, I'll dry

Our compact steel frame dishrack has an innovative drainage system that includes an integrated drip tray with a swivel spout that pivots to keep water flowing directly into the sink, not onto the countertop.

anti-residue coating

Hydrophillic coating on plastic tray causes water to spread so that it dries more quickly and prevents residue buildup. Very clean and efficient.

We use the best materials and solid engineering so our products will last for years.

pivoting swivel spout

Spout pivots in all directions to drain water directly into the sink so you can position the dishrack any way on the countertop.

extendable drip tray

Pulls out below the cup holders to catch drips.

utensil holder

Separate compartments keep utensils neat and organised.

coated steel wire

Soft, coated steel wire protects dishes against chips and scratches.

easy to clean

Interior wire tray lifts out for easy cleaning. Clean all parts in warm, soapy water.

optional feet

Add the optional feet to raise the dishrack spout over high sinks.


Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.

I really like the product the size is perfect but I thought the compact coming with wine rack is possible to buy and add wine rack to my compact dish rack? Thanks

note from simplehuman

Unfortunately, the wine glass holder for the compact steel frame dishrack is no longer available.

Every simplehuman product is a work of art

In the perfect Mies van der Rohe way: form follows function. So exquisitely that you're proud to have it sitting out publicly. Utilitarian home goods were never so sexy...

This is the best dish rack I have ever found! It has several great features: The water drains underneath through a little spout that you can aim any direction you want. There is a wine glass holder [n.b. standard model only] to keep your wine glasses safe as you let them dry. It can also be used to hang your dishrag or towel on. There are two sizes. I bought the large for myself and sent the small one to my daughter and my Mom. I highly recommend it! It's seems a little crazy to get so excited about a dish rack but here I am!!

dish drainer

by MarciaP

I really love this drainer! It drains excess water back into the sink. It is very roomy and has sides that help to keep the dishes in the rack. The glass drainer is on the side and it also has a drainer you can attach for wine glasses [n.b. standard model only]. It is also very attractive to look at. I bought my daughter and my mother one of the smaller size and they love them as well.

Works well but....

by ArgyroL

Works pretty well and has a neat sleek look. Only thing is it's pretty bulky and I also HAD to put it on its rubber feet (which makes it taller and bulkier) because on its metal feet alone it wobbled. I don't think something at this price should have a wobble issue, was pretty disappointed with that fact.

Trop cher pour ce que c'est!

by AV

Le produit est bien pensé, mais il ne vaut pas le prix demandé! Étrangement,ce même produit est vendu bien moins cher dans d'autres pays...

Très pratique

by CatherineD

Très contente du produit, il est très bien conçu et solide, les accessoire pour porter les verres et les verres à pied sont vraiment pratique et le système d’égouttage si simple et pourtant jamais vu se nettoie bien et heureusement car l'acier inoxydable n'est pas vraiment anti-traces. Bonne taille pour la vaisselle de 4 personnes. Livraison très rapide, bien emballé. Je le rachèterais certainement pour offrir.

by ConnieC

No issues with this item. Very convenient! Wish I could say more but haven't had a chance to use as much because I travel a lot. But I wish I could. Makes dishes so great to stack

Un égouttoir presque parfait

by EdithM

Egouttoir très bien conçu, j'en ai racheté un deuxième ! La petite taille est suffisante, le cale couteau en bois sur la petite taille aurait été bienvenu....

Peu mieux faire

by RudyL

Finitions très correctes et bonne qualité des matériaux si se n'est le bac de récupération de l'eau et son système d'évacuation. Très imposant sur le plan de travail. Le nettoyage du calcaire sur le plastique est compliqué. Peu mieux faire

It Rocks!

by MM

Searched long and hard for a dishrack that functioned well. All found were less than optimal for a varity of reasons - until we found this one. I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to gadgets, but this one exceeded my expectations. The drain spout that drains into your sink is genius - no need for a drain mat or the need to dry counters counters after you do dishes as all the water drains into your sink. The fab wine glass holder [n.b. standard model only] for spot free drying is the bomb. Pricey but worth it. Hats off to the designers of this one!
