How a metal mesh letter tray unwanted in the office becomes super handy in the kitchen...
Since I do not have many drawers nor much counter space, I store the cooking tools in a cupboard right by the stove. I had them standing up in a basket, but this one used to fall over a lot from the weight of all the utensils and/or as it bumped into a metal hook. It was getting frustrating.
Laying Them Down
When I lay down all the tools in each drawer, I knew right away this was going to be a good and useful fit.
The bottom drawerIt hosts the miscellaneous tools, ones that I use for specific tasks: tongs, salad spoons, spatulas, pencil, vegetables peeler, mini cheeses grater, and pizza slicer.
The two top drawersThe middle one contains all the somewhat flat utensils which I use daily to prepare the meals: wooden spoons, wooden and silicon turners, crepes turner...
And the top one holds the bigger, bulkier tools ~that don't fit in between 2 drawers!~ and that I use for serving purposes: spoons, spaghetti servers, skimmer, and also the pancakes tuner.
Now everything is easy to reach, nothing falls over, and I really like how neat it looks!
That's for a quick little organization which surely goes a long way...
