wire mesh dryer rack

Using a drying rack has an unlimited amount of uses.  If you like working in your garden or even cooking from scratch in your kitchen, then you should think about putting a drying rack into your garden area and adding one into your kitchen, which could have many more uses than just cooking from scratch.

Having a drying rack helps you to extend the life of your crops that you harvest, so that you don’t have to give away, or worse even, throw away excess that you are unable to use right away.

A few examples of how to use your drying rack:

  • Drying Seeds: Sunflower seeds and the like can be dried and then enjoyed with a little time on your drying rack.
  • Dry herbs: You probably can’t use all that mint before your plant dies. Pick the excess leaves, dry them out, crush, and bottle. Now you have your home-grown herb rack.
  • Dry pasta:You don’t have to stash your drying rack in the winter. Use it to dry your handmade pasta so you can make your famous from-scratch lasagna for the whole family!
  • Dry fruits:You can always can extra fruits to make preserves, but another option is drying them. Dried apples, grapes, oranges, apricots, and even bananas make delicious and healthy snacks.

Stainless steel wire mesh is the most common type and is therefore economical. A variety of other alloys are available as well, as wire mesh can be woven with a wide range of metals and alloys to suit different applications.

Different weave styles are available, including plain weave which has every wire going over and under every other wire, and twilled weave where the wires cross two over and two under.

At Lawrence Sintered Metals, we offer a variety of woven metal mesh products that can help you build the perfect drying racks for your gardening and cooking needs.
