I have a new kitchen...again and I would love to reorganize it. Share you favorite/best products or ideas for your kitchen organizing. It can be anything from drawer organizers, flatware trays, refrigerator and freezer ideas, spice racks etc. I would love to hear about them and of course show pics if you can.


Thanks.

We have a very small kitchen, so instead of taking up drawer or counter space, my wife put together spice jars with magnetic lids. These are attached to our fridge.

These adjustable organizers are great for cookie sheets, cutting boards, cookware lids, etc. So much better than stacking! I have two, and I love them!

If you didn't already do so, lower cabinets with pull out, sliding shelves are a wonder. Saves a lot of bending over, searching for pots etc. and easy use.

Glad you have a new kitchen

When we renovated our kitchen, we had these installed in the new cabinet drawers. I really love that I don't have to lift heavy plates:



And the cabinet maker asked me if I had lots of oils and sauces. I answered yes and he built slots for me in a drawer similar to this:



And yesterday I tackled part of my unruly pantry with this:

I second the organizer for cookie sheets and other baking items!

By far a knife magnet. Also don't forget the sharpener.

And I purchased this expandable organizer. I use it for my utensils. It was the best $25 I ever spent!

Utensil caddy/holder. I like to have all the basic stuff I use to cook, like spatula, soup ladle, large slotted spoon, whisk, potato masher, etc at hand on one side of the cook top.


You can order something like this from any cooking related store or repurpose large vases/pitchers/crocks that you already have. Its also a good way to add a pop of color into your kitchen if you desire.

Marble Turntable/Lazy Susans

I like to have on the other side of my cooktop all my cooking oils and salad oil and vinegars rather than having to dig in the pantry to find them.

Turn table makes them easy to access.

I think you can also find butcher block type turntables if you don't want marble.
