Unique, Space-Saving Design
The Spinning Drying Rack features a space-saving design that fits easily under most kitchen cabinets, so it won't take up precious space on your countertops. And yet it easily holds 12 or more bottles or sippy cups! The top shelf is also height adjustable to work with all shapes and sizes of bottles and cups, and to truly grow with you and your child. Finally, the rack folds up to accommodate your changing needs.

Ideal For Air-Drying Bottles and Cups
Ideal for air-drying all your child's feeding items from infant to toddler, the Spinning Drying Rack uses no additional energy--a definite plus if you're trying to save on utility bills--and you can hand wash it or place it in the dishwasher for fast clean-up.

The optional drip tray is designed to keep water contained, and can be removed for direct drainage to the sink. Each shelf also turns independently to allow for easy access to its contents even when it's stored underneath cupboards. And for added peace of mind, the rack is backed by a limited 90 day warranty.

Customer Reviews:

  • Small on counter space, big on drying space
    This nifty rack is well designed and well thought-out, doesn't take up too much counter space but provides a lot of drying surface, is dishwasher-friendly and lets you dry bottles, pump parts, etc in their own clean space. What's not to love?

    UPDATE: Ok, still using after ten or so months and my one complaint is that the bottom rack sits too flush to the base, meaning mold tends to build underneath where the water is trapped. Still, I wipe it down and run it through the dishwasher every once in a while, so no biggie....more info
  • Couldn't live without it
    I didn't think I'd really need this, but once I went back to work, I had pump parts and milk storage bottles that had to be cleaned on a regular basis, not to mention nipples and pacifiers. I love this thing and really have no complaints about it. It holds tons of stuff and I love how it has 2 levels - I put the milk storage bottles on the bottom and everything else on the top. I don't have any problems getting both top and bottom to spin and things don't fall over (though I can see how glass bottles might not work well on it). And I do agree that the drip tray is pretty pointless. I'm using it, but I never find water in it and it just sort of sits there.
    In short - if something happened to this one, I'd definitely buy it again....more info
  • How did I survive without this item?!
    After the nanny confused the clean and dirty dishwasher baskets of baby bottles, I bought this item. Since then, life has been a breeze on the bottle front. Clean bottles and breastpump parts go on the rack to dry and wait for the next use. No more confusion over what's clean and what's dirty! It takes up very little space and was easy to assemble....more info
  • Great for the price... and I use glass bottles
    Some of the one-star reviewers said this product doesn't work well with glass bottles, but I don't agree. I've been using mine for four months now and it works just fine. I do have to hang my glass bottles opposite of each other so the stand doesn't tip over from the weight, but that is easy to do! This product is well worth the price, and if you are like me and watching every dollar these days, don't spend more money than you need to. I definitely recommend this product. ...more info
  • Simply the best!
    ALL bottles, nipples, containers, jars, teethers, small toys fit in this. Does not take much space....more info
  • Generally good
    This is generally a really good product. I have had it on my kitchen counter since my son's first bottle. It stays very clean, allows his bottles and teething rings to dry well, and does not take up a whole lot of space. My only complaint is that it sometimes requires both hands to rotate the bottom level. Not always convenient when holding a wiggly baby, but it does exactly what it advertises for a good price. I can't imagine not having it....more info
  • Love it!
    This is a great drying rack, very well made. It does not take up a lot of space since it is round and has two tiers. I have a double sink in my kitchen and keep it there. I love how the bottles stay in place and don't tip over. I plan on using it for sippy cups and feeding utensils once my baby outgrows the bottles. ...more info
  • Not for glass bottles for sure!
    It seems like this product would work fine for plastic bottles, but when I was trying to use it for my glass bottles, not only would the little pegs not stay in so they were always falling all over the place, but the spinning feature wouldn't work with the heavier glass bottles. I'd recommend the "Prince Lionheart Complete Drying Station" instead. I haven't tried any other products, but the Price Lionheart product still has a small footprint and I can fit more bottles on it and access everything I need. Good Luck! ...more info
  • Bottle drying
    This is a great product and vey much useful, especially if you are bottle feeding. The only minor issue is the parts do not latch tightly.

    Bottom line: This is a awesome product....more info
  • Useful product but a bit pricey!!!
    The rack is pretty good, easy to use and easy to install. However, after I received the product, I was not happy with the price.
    But, overall, a useful rack to have at home to easily keep the baby bottles...more info
  • Super Helpful!!!
    This bottle rack is wonderful. I wash all my bottles and nipples by hand, and it hold all of them without a problems. The rack is adjustable, but the lower settings don't leave enough room to place the bottles below. The construction is sturdy and I love that it is vertical and saves me counter space. It spins so it is easy to place bottle, pacifiers, etc. on and off easily. My only complaint about this product is that it does not drain well into my sink, and the attatchable water collector never seems to fit right so water tends to sometimes get onto the countertop. Otherwise this product is wonderful and I would recommend it for anyone who needs to save some space. ...more info
  • I like this
    This takes up a lot of space, but works well. We had a different drying rack before and it was very flimsy. This one is nice and sturdy. ...more info
  • Love it.
    Best one out there for space and function. I returned all the others I bought (there were 3). Highly recommend....more info
  • I Didn't Realize How Much I Would Need This
    Before I had my baby, I didn't think that I would need this item. However, I quickly realized after two days home that a drying rack was essential. I chose this one because it works all all types of bottles and I like the spinning feature. I also appreciate the two tiers and it doesn't take up too much room on the counter. I recommend this bottle rack to all new moms. ...more info
  • Very happy with it
    This rack holds a lot, doesn't have a big footprint, and is easy to use. You can throw things onto it pretty easily. It seems a little rickety, but so far has held together well. ...more info
  • Not bad for an inexpensive bottle rack
    This was a definitely needed item, and it does it's job well. It's not the sturdiest thing in the world, but is handy and lightweight and takes up little room on the countertop.

    The only questionable gimmicky thing is that "drainer drawer". Although it looks like it would be useful to remove excess water, it's completely useless. Not only is the rack not tilted, so water doesn't actually go to the tray, the tray is not attached, it's just a piece that you set down; not attached. In actual use, not that much water is dripping off washed bottles, so it's no big deal...more info
  • Does what it's meant to do
    I recommend this rack simply for the price alone. It does a great job at holding lots of bottles. However, it is some what flimsy. This is my first bottle drying rack so, I really don't have anything to compare it to. Overall it is a good buy....more info
  • Great, but not for glass
    I needed a bottle rack that had tons of space for my pump parts, as well as other bits and pieces -- sippy cups, their lids, bottle nipples, etc. This is drying rack was a great choice for us. It has more than enough space, and the rotating feature is handy.

    However, I can't give this five stars, because I think it's just too lightweight to use glass bottles on. Any plastic bottles should be just fine on here, but I think glass ones would be too heavy. Thicker "stems" for the bottles to rest on would solve that problem.

    Overall, though, this is fairly sturdy and has held up to a year and a half of use in our house....more info
  • Just not right for me.....
    Bought this because it looks like it takes up less counter space than a rectangular rack and because of the so called spin feature. As another reviewer said, it is bulky, stands very tall and is extremely hard to spin. You'd think you could spin it with one hand, but the bottom part you can't. You have to hold it with one hand and then spin, otherwise it will fall down. I had planned on just leaving it on the counter so the fact that it doesn't fold up very well, didn't bother me too much. Pretty much to "fold it" you take it completely apart and it looks exactly how it did when you pulled it out of the box. I say if you plan on leaving this on the counter and don't mind how hard it is to spin it, go for it, it holds quite a bit of bottles. However if you are looking for ease of use and portability, then find a different rack!

  • Outstanding design
    I purchased this drying rack after reading lots of reviews. I don't use the dishwasher to clean bottles, so I really appreciate how practical this rack is. I use an electric pump and Dr. Brown's bottles, which have lots of little parts. This rack accommodates even the smallest pieces very easily. The rack itself doesn't collect standing water, so it's also easy to keep clean. Highly recommend this product--great value! ...more info
  • Flimsy - collapsed with glass bottles
    This thing is cheap and flimsy. The picture looked better, but I was disappointed when I put it together. It held up moderately for a couple of months. Now the top part won't stay in place. Despite it falling apart on us, I just haven't found it very easy to use. all the small parts wind up in the middle where it is harder to get to them. Of course, we use glass bottles so there is more weight on the parts than if we used plastic, but the top part is where we put the bottle tops, nipples, etc. That shouldn't break it. Oh well, I am online shopping for a replacement now. This one just didn't hold up for us....more info
  • A MUST HAVE!
    This product is a must have. I must admit there were several items I received at my baby shower that I do not and will not ever use. But this item is used EVERY DAY! And I could not live without it. My mother-in-law washes the bottles (when she is babysitting) and I always have to re-wash them when she returns them to me because she dries them on a towel and they always have water stains! When I wash and dry the bottles, nipples, rings and pacifiers I never have one water mark on them. The way this rack is designed is perfect for bottles, nipples etc. And I haven't had a single problem with it. The only thing I would recommend (especially since we are on well water) is to take it apart about every two - four weeks to wipe it down and disinfect it. Just my personal choice I guess. Thank you for this product. It gets an A+++ from me! :)

    P.S. I am now purchasing another drying rack for my mother-in-law for when I go back to work and she is babysitting full time. :)...more info
  • Everything fits
    Everything I use -- breast pump, bottles, utensils, etc.--all fit on this drying rack. I do wish the drainage piece was a little steeper. The water pools a little at the bottom. ...more info
  • A must-have!
    Tired of laying out all your bottle parts on a towel? Dishwasher not drying all your bottle parts? Then you need to buy this item or one like it. I pile tons of parts on the two platforms and hang bottles on the top and bottom spears. It doesn't take up much space and is just the handiest thing I've owned in a long time.

    If you bottle-feed your baby, then this is a must-have....more info
  • Worked really well.. at first
    I've been using this bottle drying rack for about 7 months. It had been working really well. Occassionally one of the plastic pegs would fall out.. which was no biggie.. you just pop it back in. However, in the past 2 weeks, it's started colllapsing. Basically, the top falls to the bottom and you can't really pull it back up very easily. This is really irritating when you you have it filled with bottles and bottle parts. Btw, I don't use glass bottles.. so I'm not sure why my plastic bottles are now to heavy for it. I'm so frustrated with this that I'm about to buy the Skip Hop Drying Rack....more info
  • Great drying rack
    This is a great drying rack! I was using two other flat ones to hold the same amount of bottles. The rack is fairly sturdy and accomodates larger bottles with plenty of room. ...more info
  • Great Item for New Bottle Feeding Parents
    Our baby was strictly breastfed from birth, however, one day he decided that he wanted to drink from the bottle, and now he has practically weaned himself from nursing. Until now I didn't experience life with bottles, nipples, pump parts etc, and drying them on top of a towel on the countertop was quite a challenge, because there was never enough air to dry the bottles and parts completely. Now that we have this drying rack, I just put all bottles, nipples and pump parts in it and they all get dry very quickly. I'm definitely recommending this product, as it takes very little counter space and it does the job very nicely. Will be giving it as a baby shower gift to all my future expecting friends! ...more info
  • Functions well but starting to lose shape
    We have been using this rack for 2 months to dry 8 glass bottles that we sterilize (by boiling) every day. The rack does a good job at holding all the bottles, caps and nipples for drying. However, the stems that hold the bottles up are getting quite bent and I'm concerned that one or more will snap soon. ...more info
  • This is a cool little rack
    This is a nice space saver for the kitchen counter. You can put your bottles up there after you sterilize and let them finish drying out. I've tried different racks but I really like this one. It is plastic and the top shelf is a little wobbly if you have it at the highest height setting and don't have a balanced load....more info
  • Love this rack
    Yes, it is a good size, but great for those moms who need extra space for breastpump parts and bottles. We have the Skip Hop drying rack also, but prefer this drying rack hands down!

    The different size levels are great for keeping the 4 and 8 oz. bottles seperated. The drying middles are wonderful for pump pieces, nipples, and sealing caps.

    Highly recommend this Drying Rack....more info
  • I LOVE this drying rack!!!!
    I just love, love, LOVE this product! My countertop was piled with bottles, bottle nipples and lids and Medela breastpump accessories. After reviewing a couple of different bottle racks/holders, I chose this one because of the good reviews and the fact that there are two levels. It holds so much stuff! If you stack well, you can fit a dozen bottles, nipples, lids, breastpump accessories, even baby feeding spoons. The top rack jiggles just a bit, but I don't care. It has never fallen apart and I use it every day, several times a day. It has opened up so much of my counter space and I can't imagine living without it. My bottles and many accessories dry much faster and it is really easy to clean. All in all, this is one of the best baby purchases I have made. The price is great and the product holds up well. You really should add this to your registry or buy one as a gift. I will be giving this as a shower gift as well.

  • bottle rack
    if you have plenty of counter space this is a great product. it is really large but is effective....more info
  • Not that impressed
    I am not really impressed with this product. It takes too long to dry up. Just laying on the counter top would be faster. I don't like to put milk when bottle is moistured and end up using paper towel to clean up....

    Its a good design. Fixtures are shaky. If I have a choice will look for something better.

  • Excellent for pumping moms
    I love this product! I'm pumping for my baby wich = lots of parts and lots of bottles that need to be dried constantly. I can basically fit 3 sets of Medela pumping parts, plus at least 6 bottles and a bunch of binkys too. I recommend this product to all parents simply becuase it holds so much and doesn't take up too much space. Pumping moms will definetley appreciate it the most I think. Great product!...more info
  • Great..
    I haven't tried the product yet as my baby isn't born. But it seems to be a good product with good quality. There were many parts to put it together but not too tricky.

    Shipping was fast too....more info
  • Ample space for drying bottles and accessories
    Easy to put together. Drip tray not really necessary. Bottom level does not spin like the directions claim it will. All around good drying rack....more info
  • Not for glass, but excellent organizer
    I'd previously spread out all the feeding accouterments all over the counter; now everything is secured in one vertical space. It's a simple thing, but I love this organizer....more info
