A pasta drying rack is a contraption designed for drying strands of pasta after they are made. They can be made of wood, stainless steel, plastic, or a combination of materials and usually consist of several horizontal bars, either attached to a central post or to 2 end posts, on which the pasta strands can hang with enough space around them for air to circulate and dry the pasta evenly. Most models either fold flat or are easily disassembled to save on storage space. Look for one that is both tall enough to hold long strands of pasta above your countertop and large enough to hold the quantity of pasta you’re likely to make at one time.
