Quick: Name something in the kitchen that is decorative, useful, versatile, and affordable all at the same time. Give up? It’s the kitchen towel! Whether you’re drying your dishes, cleaning up a spill in the microwave, or wiping your hands to move onto the next prep task, very few essential kitchen tools are as useful for everyday as kitchen towels. And no matter the style or size of your kitchen, there is always set that that will fit your look and your needs.

Our Top Picks

Most kitchen towels, even the pretty decorative ones, are affordable in general. But if used to their fullest extent, they become one of the most value-add items in your kitchen. They save money because they are washable and reusable, replacing those disposable paper towels to clean and dry. They can also double as oven mitts, though remember you should never use them if they are damp or for anything scorching hot or heavy. Kitchen towels are also great trivet substitutes, so you protect your wood tables and other surfaces from wax rings and other damage.

And of course, kitchen towels are such an easy go-to decoration. Pick a pattern (naturally, we love Ree’s signature prints!) or a pop color, and your kitchen instantly has a bit more pizzazz. If you’re in the market for simple dish towels, buy something in bulk to be the workhorses you need them to be. Either way, look for absorbent and durable materials like cotton or microfiber so you get the most bang for your buck, and you’ll be reaching for them nonstop no matter what you’re making.
