If you like to have your most-used kitchen items at your fingertips, the right countertop storage is essential. Kitchen counter organizers provide easy access to your treasured kitchen tools while keeping your countertops tidy.
Countertop Storage for Food
Save room in your pantry with attractive countertop organizers that keep food fresh. Match them to your other decor or appliances for a streamlined look.
• Bread Boxes. Stainless steel, bamboo or plastic bread boxes keep your bread and other baked goods fresh and is a great alternative to leaving them out on the counter.
• Countertop Fruit Storage. Use a fruit bowl or serving tray for your non-refrigerated produce. A multi-tiered model provides an elegant touch and allows you to separate different types of fruit by level. If you like bananas, try a banana hanger. It allows air to freely circulate around the bananas so they ripen more slowly and bruise less.
• Cookie Jars. A decorative ceramic or glass cookie jar is a fun way to store cookies or candy away from eager little hands.
Utensil and Dishware Holders
You’ll save time and hassle while you cook when all your tools are within reach. Utensil holders keep the cooking utensils you use most often at hand. Use them to store whisks, spatulas, slotted spoons and scissors. Choose from styles in ceramic, bamboo, stainless steel or hammered copper to add a tasteful accent to your countertop.
A decorative double spoon rest can help you avoid a mess on the counter. Place your stirring spoon down when making soups and stews without staining your stovetop. To clean up small cooking spills, install an under cabinet paper towel holder or set one next to the stove for quick access.
Safely and easily retrieve your kitchen knives by adding a knife block to your counter or consider a magnetic knife holder for a more contemporary display of your stainless steel cutlery. Use mug trees or racks to keep your coffee mugs organized on the countertop, so your first cup of coffee is right at your fingertips each morning.
