A heads up: Food52 earns a commission on qualifying purchases of the products we link to.

We could've sworn it was January just yesterday, but it appears we're somehow wrapping up the second week of March. The winter weather is (slowly) starting to fade out, the sun is setting a little bit later each day, and you might even be noticing barely blooming buds in your garden, backyard, or nearby park.

Before we leap forward into spring, we wanted to take a look back at some of your favorite things from winter; specifically, your favorite items in our Shop. Saucepans and a personal blender were crowd favorites (we've been deep in soup season, after all), but so were vinyl kitchen rugs, colorful flatware, and a flameless table lamp.

Curious to see what else made the cut? Here are the 15 Shop items you all couldn't get enough of in February.

5. Emile Henry French Ceramic Fruit Storage Bowl, $110+

6. Five Two Over-the-Sink Dish Drying Rack, $45 $36

If you've got limited counter space and have been searching for a compact dish-drying solution, this is it. A plus many other roll-up drying racks don't have? It's heat safe up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning it can double as a trivet or cooling rack, too.
