The chrome cutlery caddy makes drying and storing cutlery easier. When used as a cutlery drainer, wet utensils are held upright. The mesh base, held above the surface by balled feet, provides space for water to drip off your utensils and drain away. The open ringed design lets air get at the drying utensils too. It can also be used as a cutlery holder on your dining room table or kitchen countertop.
