Keep your kitchen storage neat with these organizers

An organized kitchen can make a world of difference when it comes time to cook a meal. For many of us, cooking is chaotic enough without scrambling for all the pots, pans, and utensils needed to cook dinner. This is where kitchen organizers can come in handy. Whether it’s your pantry, kitchen drawers, cabinets, or counter space, keeping your kitchen storage neatly organized is key to avoiding headaches when cooking. Here are some of the best kitchen organizers to help you never misplace a utensil again.

Bamboo drawer organizer

Drawer organizers for your basic eating utensils are a must for any kitchen. After all, you wouldn’t want a sea of forks, knives, and spoons clanking about in the drawer. This particular bamboo utensil organizer is great because it has many different compartments to sort small utensils by category. This one is 2.6 inches in height and its width is adjustable between 13 and 22.4 inches, making it suitable for most drawer sizes.

Kitchen storage dishes rack

While many people store their dishes by stacking them on a shelf, there is a much more efficient way. With this dishes rack, you can place your dishes side by side for easier and quicker access to all your plates, bowls, and platters. They are 17.6 inches high by 34.8 inches wide by 15.5 inches deep, so you need to make sure they fit into your cabinets. If not, there are many similar products of different sizes and price points that allow you to store your dishes neatly.

Under-shelf wire rack

Here’s a helpfully sneaky one: the under-shelf wire rack. This rack slips right onto a shelf and creates space under it to store small items — say, a pizza slicer or a can opener. It also has two spots to store paper towel rolls.

Under-sink kitchen organizer

This sturdy metal under-kitchen sink organizer can withstand all grime that may get under your sink over time. Plus, it has multiple compartments to fit all your important cleaning supplies and any other items you keep under the sink. 

Lazy Susan organizer

If you have a Lazy Susan, you know how disorganized it can get. While this kitchen storage feature is supposed to make life simple, it seems we tend to throw random items on it until we can’t pull it out anymore. With this kitchen organizer specifically made for the Lazy Susan, you can separate the area into three sections. They’re also clear, so you’ll be able to see everything that’s inside.

Over-the-door pantry organizer

Although this is branded as a pantry organizer, you can place this over any door near the kitchen for quick and easy access to whatever you choose to keep in there. One of these is almost essential for the kitchen because it creates brand-new space, which can clear up space in other spots so you can clearly see what you have in front of you.

There’s nothing worse than getting halfway through cooking dinner and then realizing you’re missing the ladle or spatula you need. Using any of these kitchen organizers will make it easy to keep your kitchen storage in order for a more pleasant cooking experience.
