Help your kitchen reach its full potential
Whether you are a gourmet chef or a weekend baker, your kitchen is probably full of gadgets of all shapes and sizes. Kitchen gadgets cover the gamut from utensils and cookware to kitchen radios and timers. They can also include small appliances such as blenders, bread machines and mixers.
Most kitchen gadgets are available at the majority of department stores and home renovation centers. These stores often hold regular clearance sales during the early months of the year to clear out old stock before taking inventory. Consumers can expect discounts between 25 and 50 percent on tools that could potentially save space and time in the kitchen. However, if these prices are still a little high for you, kitchen gadgets are also a popular item at flea markets or garage sales, where you can find incredible deals.
Although they may seem pretty self-explanatory, there are a number of creative ways to store and adapt your kitchen gadgets to make your kitchen work experience easier:
- Cutlery dividers can be custom-built directly into cabinets to organize your kitchen forks and knives.
- Use roll out shelves and drawers to store pots, pans and spices for easier access.
- Fold-down colanders are easier to store than molded versions.
- Lazy Susans in corner shelves makes access to hard-to-reach items a snap.
- Built-in tray dividers keep your trays in place and keep cupboards free of clutter.
- Cabinet lights allow you to see what is lurking in the dark shadows at the back of your cabinets.
- S-hooks can be mounted under kitchen cabinets to store large utensils, pots and pans that are used frequently.
- Built-in wine racks not only look nice but keep your wine safe and in peak condition.
- Drains can be built directly into the counter for extra convenience when straining vegetables or pasta.
- Like music when you work? Install an under the counter CD player and radio combo. Many come with digital clocks that can be used at a kitchen timer.
- An electric jar or can opener can make opening containers easy for those who have difficulty with hand models.
- How about a wine fridge or beer cooler that easily fits under the counter for easy accessibility and convenience?
