Accents are important, especially in such a sacred space like the kitchen, but accents that are highly functional are essential. I use my dish towels likely too much. For some messes, my girlfriend says, I should use a regular towel. And while I hear her, it’s just hard not to use them. Whether you’re baking a loaf of bread, handling a burning hot handle, or cleaning the dishes and countertop, you want your go-to to be something you enjoy looking at, and love the feel of. You want them to be more than just decoration. To help you parse through, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite dish towels out there. Because yes, we’re so opinionated that we even have favorite dish towels.
FOR QUICK DRYING
These towels use a Dobby weave which makes them not only soft, but extremely absorbent while drying up quickly. This means that bacteria will build up less.
FOR STRENGTH, BUT NOT TOO MUCH
Zeppoli Classic White Kitchen Towels
These dish towels are made with strong durable fibers of cotton and won’t scratch your fine silverware, plates, pots, or pans. Plus, the 15-pack means you’ll have plenty on hand for all of your kitchen needs.
FOR MAXIMUM SIZE
Harringdons Kitchen Dish Towels
Size does matter, according to Harringdon. These are a little larger than your average towel, so you can easily fill a bread basket with one, or sop up any mess instead of turning to a paper towel.
Five Two Essential Kitchen Towels
These upgraded dish towels are the ultimate all-in-one. Not only are they quick-drying, they have a thick weave that’s perfect for handling hot pots, and a smart, good looking design as well.
