Our Top Picks

Best Overall: OXO Tot Bottle Drying Rack

When purchasing a baby bottle drying rack you need to account for your kitchen space as well as how many bottles a day your baby will be drinking. Formula-fed babies might need bigger racks because they'll get more bottles throughout the day, while breastfeeding or combo fed babies need less.

This drying rack from OXO is one of the larger models on our list so it is suitable for homes with a lot of counter space. It has space for about eight bottles including all of their parts, on elevated tines to allow for quick drying and ventilation. There are also open areas with raised ribs to keep small parts from sitting in water, and the bottom corners are shaped to making pouring out water easy. A removable cup holds straws and utensils making it quite useful as your baby grows and gets away from bottles and moves to sippy cups. 

Parents who have tried other drying racks say this one is “life-changing.” They note that it’s easy to clean (it is dishwasher safe!) and, unlike other models, doesn’t collect mold.

Best Budget: The First Years Spin Stack Drying Rack

With two adjustable tiers, this can hold up to 16 bottles in all and takes up less counter space than many other models. The whole thing spins too, so you can easily find what you need. You can put it directly in your kitchen sink for drying or use the drip tray it comes with on your counter. It also folds up flat for easy storage when you’re not using it. 

Parents say this rack holds a ton of baby items, and they like its space-saving design. Some say it could be sturdier, but most say it’s a great value for the low price. 

Best Space-Saving: OXO Tot Space Saving Drying Rack

For kitchens where counter space is at a premium, the last thing you want is a bottle drying rack that takes up a ton of it. This one from OXO was designed to fit in tight spaces, but still provides plenty of room for drying. It has nine pegs that are hung at an angle to maximize space, and the top has a place to hold pacifiers, nipples and other accessories. It’s also just under 15 inches high, so it will fit under many cabinets. 

Parents say it’s a great way to keep feeding accessories organized without taking up too much space. It also has a very sleek design that blends into most homes. Some note, after the baby period it makes a great wine glass drying rack!

Best for Wide Bottles: Philips Avent Drying Rack

This rack from Philips Avent won’t hold a ton bottle (up to 8), but if your bottles are on the wide side, it’s got you covered. It’s compact, measuring 3 x 13.4 x 8.3 inches, so it doesn’t take up a ton of counter space, and the drying prongs are easy to move, so you can arrange them the way that works best for your baby supplies. The drip tray is removable too so you can easily empty out water as it accumulates. 

Parents say it’s sturdy, and they love the flexibility it gives them so they can configure it just so. They say bottles dry quickly as they’re suspended in air, and the tray is easy to clean.

Best Portable: OXO Drying Rack With Bottle Brush

For drying bottles and breast pump parts on the go, there’s this portable drying rack from OXO. It comes with everything you need to dry baby gear including a bottle brush, detail brush, and a brush stand, and the whole thing folds up into one small package.

It’s perfect for hotel rooms or even your office if you’re going to be using a breast pump, and the rack is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning. It fits easily in a purse or diaper bag, and parents say it’s a lifesaver and a much better alternative than plastic bags filled with wet bottles and nipples.

Best Multipurpose: Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack Green

Drying Rack

Boon

If you want a drying rack with a lot of room, there’s this one from Boon. It accommodates bottles and accessories of all sizes and shapes, and it can hold quite a bit (it measures 13.5 x 11. 2.5). There are two pieces—the drying rack and a tray that sits underneath to collect water. Note, however, that neither are dishwasher safe.

The look of this drying rack is distinct from its grass-green base, and many find it a fresh, fun addition to their kitchen. You can purchase additional parts that allow nipples and such to dry on fun things like a flower, twig and such. What many like about it is it can be used for when your baby is ready for a cup and all of its parts.

Overall, online reviewers give it high marks. They like how much gear it holds, and some even say they bought two to sit side-by-side for even more space. Some do note, however, that it can be difficult to clean and say that if you’re not super vigilant mold can easily form in the tray underneath.

Best High Capacity: Prince Lionheart Deluxe Drying Station

If you feel like you’re constantly running out of drying space for your feeding accessories, this drying station from Prince Lionheart may give you the space you need. With eight large hooks and 10 small hooks, it can hold up to 16 bottles as well as sippy cups, pacifiers, breast pump accessories and more. 

Even parents of twins say this drying rack has plenty of room to meet their needs, while still being sleek and not too big. Online reviewers note that it’s easy to assemble, easy to wash, and many say they like it much better than other popular drying racks they’ve tried.

Best Spinning: Munchkin High Capacity Drying Rack

This well-built drying rack from Munchkin has two independent spinning racks on two levels so that you can dry bottles and cups of various heights.

It holds up to 16 bottles with their accessories and then can fold down almost flat for storage. Bottles and cups can fit over the spindles, lids, rings and odd-shaped pieces can lay on the trays, and nipples can slide into the slots in the trays. There's a little slide-out piece at the bottom that collects water so you can empty it in the sink.

Best for Dishwasher: OXO Tot Dishwasher Basket for Bottle Parts & Accessories

Another favorite from OXO, this basket allows you to wash your bottle parts in the dishwasher without fear of losing pieces. Just load up the base and the nipples in this two-part design and place on the top rack of your dishwasher. What's more by washing the bottles in the dishwasher you don't have to worry about sterilizing your bottles!

The abundance of holes in the design allows the bottle to get clean and dry, but it keeps everything contained. While not a must-buy baby product—for parents who plan to put bottles in the dishwasher—this helps keeps things organized.
