Kitchen Appliance Storage Tricks

Kitchen appliance

If you have multiple smaller kitchen appliances you probably have a hard time finding space for all of them. One of the most commonly used small kitchen appliances is the Kitchen Aid stand mixer. This appliance has become extremely popular over the past couple of years. There are many different ways you can store and hide this mixer so it is not always sitting out in the open on your counters.

One way to store your mixer is to install the hideaway shelf. This conveniently pulls out of a cabinet and can hold the weight of the mixer and other bowls. It locks into place to ensure proper mixing without falling back into the cabinet. These can be installed in different sizes to accommodate the style and size of your kitchen cabinets. This is a great way to store your mixer because you can easily bring it out to whip up some cookie batter and put it back into the cabinet immediately after you are done.

A couple other appliances that are commonly used are a microwave and toaster.  There are hideaway rolling cabinet doors that are easy to use and install. These will pull out and cover an entire cabinet space then roll back to look like they were never there. In this cabinet you can hide your microwave, toaster and your Kitchen Aid mixer in the same area. This makes it very easy to clean up your kitchen when you have company or a get together. You can keep these appliances hidden behind the rolling cabinet door until you need to use them. If you put multiple shelves in this cabinet you can even store the accessories for these appliances.

68f2362efe73af0b4058495aa9b46d36Some people use a larger blender to make smoothies and salad dressings. These blenders can become a hassle to move around if they are left sitting on your kitchen counters. This goes the same for a tea pot or even a pitcher. There is a very simple and stylish way to keep these products stored so they are not in the way of your everyday activities in the kitchen.

Using one of the cabinets under the counter, you can install what looks like dishwasher drawers. These can be pulled out and can store multiple items next to each other without worrying about the wood drawers or cabinets getting wet. Keeping these items together is a great idea to keep your kitchen well organized so you know exactly where every item is kept.

A dream kitchen will include all of these appliances but in spaces where you cannot see them. The trick is to make your kitchen look spotless and organized while you are not cooking. Your kitchen will then look well used and fully equipped when it comes time to prepare a meal or bake some cookies. You will have your guests excited and intrigued when you whip these appliances out of their hiding spots.

Storing your Pots and Pans in Style

pots and pans storage

If you are like any other person who enjoys frequently cooking, you probably have a few draws or cabinets filled with pots and pans. You also probably have a drawer full of different sized lids that do not have a matching pot or pan to it. If you are more of a baker, your glass bake ware might be completely disorganized to the point where you cannot find the one you want when you really need it. There are solutions for all of these problems. You no longer have to search the entire kitchen for that one pot, that one baking dish or that missing lid.

The first task to tackle is to organize your lids that belong to your pots and pans. There are small rails you can screw into the doors of your cabinets. This lets your lids rest easily against the rail so they are readily available to you when you open your cabinet door. This technique also helps clear space from other areas in your kitchen. You no longer have to designate one drawer or cabinet for your lids. You can install these rails on every cabinet and store your lids all over your kitchen. The best thing about these rails is they fit all sized lids. Whether the lid is for a small frying pan or a large cooking pot, they will fit side by side on these rails.

d609a50ddb59629e5bb439f49eb01b6bIf you are someone who likes to keep your lids with the corresponding pot or pan, this next trick is for you. In your pull out drawers you can install wooden dividers to make individual compartments. These compartments can be individualized for each pot so they fit perfectly. You can store your pots and pans with their matching lid in one drawer so you will never get the two separated.

These dividers do not have to be fancy and expensive. A simple piece of particle board would be sufficient enough to separate the different pots and pans from each other. Another way to keep the pots with the lids is to invest in a tree cookware organizer. This will hold four different sized pots with their matching lids in the shape of a tree. You only need to designate one cabinet space for this product and you will be able to store up to 8 different pots and pans. Along with storing the pots in the tree shape, there are some hooks on the corners so you can easily hang some pans by their handles.

Some cooks don’t use lids or don’t bother keeping them stored together at least. If this is you, you should look into installing some hooks on the underside of your counter in your cabinets. This is a cheap and easy way to store your expensive and fancy cooking pots and pans. You can hang these items by their handles so they are suspended in the air and not touching any part of the cabinets. If you have the lids available, you can store them under the pots to keep them in the same vicinity. These hooks can be found at just about any department store or hardware store.

You don’t want to forget about your glass cooking dishes when it comes to organizing your kitchen. These are some of the most important accessoriPots and Pans Storagees in anyone’s kitchen. They can be used for baking cakes, cooking casseroles and many other things. The first thing to do is place a piece of peg board in the bottom of any drawer. This gives you the freedom to design a space to store your glassware as you see fit. You can place the pegs in different patterns to hold your items depending on the size of the dish. You will be able to easily store your large cake pan, your small bread pan and even your round pie dishes all in the same drawer.

Using these ideas will turn any ordinary kitchen into an organized and trendy kitchen. Don’t spend any more time searching for your pots and pans and their matching lids. You will now know exactly where every item is and able to create your dishes in no time.

Herb and Spice Organization Ideas

Herb and Spice Organization
Shooting in the kitchen at home,

Most kitchens have a spice rack or spice organization area somewhere. Whether you have a premade spice rack you purchased or a unique storage solution for your spices, you have them stored somewhere in your kitchen. This is important because if you like to cook, you most likely have a decent amount of spice containers. No one wants their spices making a mess in a drawer or taking up counter space by the sink. It is best to keep these spices hidden in a storage space or organized on a rack. This blog will show you a few different solutions to help get your spices organized and hidden at the same time.

Herb and Spice Organization Ideas

One way you can organize your spices is by using the Rubbermaid Pull Down Spice Rack. This is great because you can have them easily store up in a cabinet but pull them down when you need to use any of them. This gives you the best of both worlds. A hidden spice rack in your top cabinet and ease of reach with the pull down feature. This one in particular can hold up to 15 different spices and takes up very little space in your cabinet.

If you like arranginHerb and Spice Organization Ideasg your kitchen items as you please to let your creativity shine, this next idea is perfect for you. The HEX 24 jar kit comes with 24 jars with magnetic lids. Unlike other magnetic kits that make you use a piece of metal, these stick directly to your fridge. You no longer have to find room somewhere in your cabinets to stick your spice rack. You can now simply let them hang onto your fridge door and have them easily accessible for everyone who uses the kitchen. The other great thing about this idea is you can arrange the jars in any pattern you wish. If you like to keep them clumped together, you can do that or you can spread them out according to the type of spice in the container.

Some kitchens come with limited cabinet space but tons of drHerb and Spice Organizationawer space. If this is the case with your kitchen, a Rev-a-Shelf drawer spice organizer will be perfect. You can keep your spices stored at an easily accessible level in one of your cabinet drawers. Sometimes having the spice rack in a top cabinet makes it hard for anyone who is vertically challenged to reach. This drawer organizer is universal and can be altered to fit just about any size cabinets. The angle the spices are stored also makes it very easy to read which jar has which spice in it. You no longer have to pick up each individual spice container before finding the nutmeg you need.

There are many people who collect spices throughout the year who Herb and Spice Organizationcan stock up any of these organization ideas. There are also people who do not collect spices and need to purchase a spice rack with the spices already organized within. A great starter spice rack would be the Cole and Mason spice rack. This is on a carousel so you can easily turn the rack to view all of the spices. There are 20 different glass spice jars included with this spice rack to get you started in any cooking environment. They are very durable and will last a long time so you don’t have to worry about the jars or the carousel falling apart anytime soon.

Any of these spice organization ideas will help you keep your kitchen tidy and neat while keeping it fully stocked with the essential herbs and spices. You can either buy the racks by themselves and stock them with your own spices or buy the racks with the spices in them already. Both methods will give you a new look to your herb and spice collections.

Halloween Treats and Drinks

Halloween Treats and Drinks

As the Halloween is just around the corner, there are many different creative things to do when it comes to preparing snacks and drinks for your costumed guests at a party. Whether you want to keep it kid friendly or strictly for adults, there are tons of different things you can do with simple ingredients in your kitchen.

One of the most popular Halloween themed food items is a Hot Dog Mummy. This is simply wrapping a raw crescent roll around a hotdog to mimic the look of a mummy. Bake these in the oven and you have a tasty treat that is also Halloween ready. Drizzling ketchup over the top can add the look of blood if you want to take that extra step to make it gory.

One of my favorite food items at any party is a taco dip with tortilla chips. Most of the taco dips out there follow the basic same recipe. You layer your taco meat, beans, salsa, sour cream, cheese and guacamole into some sort of boring container. Instead of layering the sour cream with the other ingredients, you can create a spider web design on the outer layer to make it fit the Halloween theme. This will let you keep all of the same ingredients you want while making it look creative at the same time.

Halloween Treats and DrinksA fruit dip is always a hit at family get togethers. You can take the simple route and create a pumpkin spice yogurt dip for apples and cookies. Or you can take the more unique route and put this dip into a carved out miniature pumpkin. This will be a huge hit at any party. Blending the tastes of pumpkin spice with apples and cookies will win over your adult guests and even the children. The fact that you are serving this dip straight out of a miniature pumpkin puts the cherry on top of the cake.

There is a more festive approach you can take to keeping your bottled and canned beverages cold instead of using a boring cooler. Take a fairly large pumpkin and cut off the top completely. You then need to completely scoop out the insides and put them in another container. If you enjoy baking pumpkin seeds make sure you put them aside to use for a later dish. Once your pumpkin is cleaned out you can fill it with ice cubes and place your drinks in there. This will keep your drinks cool while fitting the Halloween theme perfectly.

There are many different Halloween drink ideas you can play around with as well. For the adult party guests, a great thing to do is put Jell-O shots into plastic syringes. To make them look realistic, a red colored Jell-O should be used. These can be made with or without alcohol depending on your guests likings. Make the Jell-O in a bowl and fill the syringes with the unfinished product. Leave the syringes in the fridge for a few hours to give the Jell-O time to harden up. By the time your guests arrive the will be ready to squirt into their mouths.

A more kid friendly beverage that would be a hit is the candy corn punch. This drink calls for a few different ingredients but the end result has orange, yellow and white layers to resemble that of a candy corn. You make the lemon Jell-O and let it set at the bottom of the pitcher. You want to leave it long enough to thicken but not completely harden. You then pour an orange soda over that layer using a wooden spoon to keep the layers separated. Top the punch off with some whipped topping and your kid friendly candy corn punch is complete.

Using some of these recipes and ideas for your Halloween party will ensure your guests have a great time and enjoy some tasty treats and drinks!

Slicing butter with a knife can be very strenuous on your joints if the butter is not softened yet. Instead of letting your butter sit out to soften or melting it in the microwave, use the one click butter cutter. This makes it much easier to get perfectly portioned slices of butter every time. The other issue that comes with cutting butter with a knife is the fact that you can never get the same amount of butter with each slice.  Now everyone at the dinner table can get the same amount of butter by simply squeezing the butter cutter.

3. Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press


Garlic ChopperThis inst exactly a chopper but it does get the job done.  The Zyliss Susi Garlic Press is a good alternative to a chopper.  It takes care of mincing garlic by forcing an entire clove through a pattern of small holes.  This breaks up the clove and makes it into small pieces in one shot.  One convenience about this press is you can add an unpeeled clove and the skin will not make its way through the holes.  It might take a little more strength than the other choppers on the list but it can put the garlic where you need it in one move.

4. NexTrend 3rd Generation Clear Garlic TwistGarlic Chopper

This is yet another style of garlic chopper that works extremely well.  The NexTrend Garlic Twist works by trapping a clove of garlic between two sets of counter rotating sets of plastic blades.  As you twist the device back and forth you are able to mince up a clove in no time to any consistency you desire.  This devise is a little bit harder to clean than some of the others because garlic gets stuck between the blades, but it does come free with a good rinse while the garlic is still fresh.

5. OXO Good Grip Mini Chopper


Garlic ChopperThis chopper is just like slap chop or other similar style choppers you may have seen.  It has retractable spring loaded blades that will chop each time you push the plunger down.  The blades also rotate so each push is sure to chop a new peice.  One good thing about this chopper is that it is a little larger and you can fit more than just garlic in it.  It works great but has many parts and is a little tough to clean thoroughly but it still makes our list.

Black & Decker Dustbuster Hand Vacuum Review

Black and Decker Vacuum

This hand held vacuum is great for those hard to reach places. If your regular vacuum cannot reach under the bed or the couch, this cordless vacuum will get the job done. The nozzle is very slim and rotates to get into tight corners. Many of the other handheld vacuums have extra pieces that need to be stored elsewhere.

This vacuum has storage compartments for a crevice tool and brush so everything stays together. The main characteristic that separates this vacuum from the other hand held vacuums is the cyclonic action around the filter. You no longer have to worry about the power weakening because of debris and dirt getting caught in the filter. Before using this product, be sure to charge it for 24 hours to ensure full battery life while cleaning. At an affordable price, you can receive this product in two days and get your house clean in no time.
