Organize Your Kitchen!

“Where are the tongs? Honey? WHERE ARE THE TONGS?!”

Ever been there? I have. Sometimes I luck out and can’t find what I’m looking for BEFORE I start cooking. But usually I’m working on preparing a meal and juggling multiple items at the same time. Right as one dish reaches the critical moment I have no way to get it out of the pan or cooking dish. And not just small things. I’ve had it happen once with a turkey and once with a ham. Those were hot and heavy!

The sad thing is that keeping your kitchen organized is a relatively easy thing to do. When I grew up, all of our flatware was in one drawer, and all of our cooking gadgets were in another. The flatware drawer would have the larger cooking spoons and cutting knives, but spatulas and other items were crammed in the drawer. That is all fine and good, but why not free up some of that space with a simple kitchen utensil holder?

I now have two utensil holders that I keep right by the stove. Spatulas, slotted spoons, whisks, etc. All of the larger utensils go in the utensil holder. Not only does it free up space in the drawer for the more odd shaped items, but it puts the utensils I need where I need them so I have them when I need them.

With so many specialized storage stores, it should be easy to find something that matches the look and feel of your kitchen. You can find stainless steel containers, either solid, or wire-framed. There are multiple plastic options…ceramic…the choices are out there. There are even some pretty awesome rack systems out there if you have enough wall space to hang your utensils. Generally, those systems are designed to hang their brand of utensils, but yours may fit.

There are also plenty of different drawer organization options for allocating space in your cooking drawer.

The more organized you get, the less you’ll have to worry when you’re caught in the heat of the moment. For more info on cooking utensils and gadgets check out
