The Kitchen Utensil Holder: How to Choose the Right One

The Kitchen Utensil Holder:  How to Choose the Right One

In just about any kitchen, space can be at a premium.  Organization is the key to keeping things in order, and a kitchen utensil holder will help you to do just that.  There are a number of options out there for a kitchen utensil holder that will keep your kitchen utensils clean, organized and ready at hand whenever you need them.  The right kitchen utensil holder for your kitchen depends on how many utensils you have, whether you want them hidden or not, and what sort of design you prefer.

A kitchen utensil holder that is designed for use in a drawer keeps the utensils organized as well as out of sight.   These range in size and format to accommodate all different sizes of drawers, as well as different types of kitchen utensils that are available.  Much like the kitchen utensil holders that contain your flatware, larger versions are available to let you organize your kitchen utensils in the same way.

There are also kitchen utensil holder options that can sit on your countertop.  These are best for keeping utensils close at hand, but they do tend to take up a lot of space on the counter.  If you have limited counter space these are probably not the best choice for you.  The counter top kitchen utensil holder may have one large compartment or several compartments that allow you to separate your utensils by type and size. 

Some kitchen utensil kits come with a holder included that is designed to fit all of the utensils in the kit.  Although this can be very convenient, if you have other favorite utensils or want to add others later, you will find that you are out of space and can’t fit anything more.  For this reason it is often better to select a kitchen utensil holder that is larger than you currently need.

If you can’t find the right kitchen utensil holder in the kitchen section, try heading on down to the garden section.  It might sound odd, but a small pot for a plant can be the perfect kitchen utensil holder.  You will have a greater selection of colors and patterns as well; most kitchen utensil holders in the kitchen section come in a very limited selection of colors, usually white, black and maybe grey.  Occasionally they will come in other colors, but for something that is both attractive and offers something to add to the décor of your kitchen, turn a plant pot into a kitchen utensil holder!

The right kitchen utensil holder for your kitchen fits not only your utensils but also your cooking style and your décor.  The most important thing is that it keeps your kitchen utensils well organized and easy for you to reach when you need them.  When you shop for a kitchen utensil holder, looks are great, but function is truly the most important thing.  Make sure you can access all your kitchen tools easily and can find exactly what you are looking for without difficulty.
