Sorting Out Kitchen Knick Knacks

Nov 13, 2007
As much as you need a closet to keep all your trendy outfits and shoes in prime and pristine condition, your kitchen gadgets also need their own havens. Any cook will tell you that a well organized kitchen also equals to great meals as this makes them work with greater ease and efficiency. Here are a few organizers to keep those kitchen thingamabobs in check.

Butter keeper

Pancakes are a favorite treat during breakfast for kids and adults alike. There is nothing like the soft, moist and flavorful taste of this flat thin bread especially when it has a slice of butter sizzling on top. Just thinking about it makes one hungry. Butter is not only essential to pancakes but to bread and other pastries plus is also a basic ingredient to some meal recipes. Your kitchen should never run out of fresh stocks of butter. But how do you keep it fresh? Some folks choose to store butter in refrigerators but this can cause the butter to be hard and stiff. Spreading rigid butter can ruin your toast and maybe break it in half if you are not careful. The solution to this is simply a butter keeper or a butter crock. With butter keepers, butter can still be kept fresh, soft and spread able at room temperature. These keepers come with an air-tight seal so it can be kept from spoiling even for several weeks.

Dish racks

There is no better haven for your dishes than a tidy and durable dish rack set. These sets are just the thing to hold your dishes, utensils, glasses and mugs while they are still dripping wet after washing. Some dish racks come with drain boards to catch those drips and drops preventing them from spilling over and littering your kitchen counters.

Mug tree

The general assumption is we all drink coffee, tea, milk or any other hot beverage at home. And what better container to use in drinking these warm drinks than with our own trusty mugs. Mugs are a common sight in kitchens. They are usually laid in the same racks as the glasses and the dishes but somehow they look out of place. Maybe it is because they should be placed in their own mug tree. Tree mugs can hold around six to seven mugs. They come in great designs and may be made out of steel or wood. These trees do not only look good, they can save you space as well.

Kitchen Canisters

You can store almost anything in canisters from flour, sugar, uncooked rice, rock salt, beans, candies and so much more. These nifty kitchen organizers come in plastic, wood, porcelain, stainless steel, glass and even stoneware. The designs and styles are a million to choose from so you can be sure to get one that would fit your kitchen theme.

Wine racks

If you are the kind to keep an adequate stock of wine at home for that occasional sip, then your kitchen should not be missing a wine rack. Wine racks can be made up of wood or metal. Latest innovations include hanging wine racks and wall mounted wind racks. Most wine racks are customized to fit the kitchen space and design but there are also all-purpose and universal designs available in the market.
