Using kitchen organizers for spice jars is a great idea, but what do you do if the space you have is so limited there isn’t even room for one on your countertop, or you prefer to keep your kitchen surfaces clear?
The solution is a spice rack in a drawer, which is out of the way and keeps your spice jars organized.
In this article we will review five of the best spice rack for drawers, and highlight their top features, so you can choose the right one for your kitchen.
As kitchen accessories go, this is as simple and convenient a product as it is possible to imagine, and for that reason, it makes YouCopia’s spice jar organizer a great option to save space and keep your spice jars organized.
The benefits you have, due to the simplicity of this spice rack drawer, start before you so much as place a spice jar on it. It requires no installation or setup to use it, so all you need to do is place it in a drawer, and it’s ready.
There is one exception to this and that is if the rack is slightly too big for the drawer you want to use it in. If this is the case then simply trim one or more edges neatly, and in a straight line, until you get the dimensions small enough for it to fit neatly in the drawer.
It has the capacity to store up to 24-full sized spice bottles, which you can align in a six by four layout. This is due to the rack having six vertical panels so nothing too complicated there either.
Plastic is often used for products like this, however, its smooth surface can mean than spice jars slide about, and the drawer becomes untidy. This rack is made from foam which prevents the sliding we just mentioned, thus the jars stay in place.
This is spice rack which maximizes the amount of drawer space you have available. It is also made of a very durable material which means it will last you a long time.
Products which can be set up and used immediately are our favorites and the fact that this spice rack requires no installation means it gets a plus mark right away. All you need to do is place it where you want and extend it to whatever width you require.
While it is ideal for use inside a drawer, if your drawer space is very limited, this spice rack can also be used inside a kitchen cabinet or placed on your countertop.
It is very easy to organize your spice jars thanks to the three-tiered design. This allows you to place similar types of spice together on the same row or store them alphabetically.
Each of the shelves is slanted which not only gives a stylish look, on a practical level it also helps with identifying each spice jar, as it makes the labels easier to read.
The rack is constructed from a very durable BPA plastic which is shatter resistant, should you ever drop it. This also makes it very easy to clean with a simple wipe from a damp cloth.
This spice rack from KD Organizers is simple and compact and allows you to store spice bottles neatly, without sacrificing lots of storage space in your kitchen.
One of the best features of this spice rack is its slating tiers which make identifying your spice jars much easier, as you can see their labels clearly, assuming you have placed them properly in their place.
When your spice jars are sitting on the rack, you will be pleased to know that they should stay in place rather than roll around or slide off the rack. This is due to the non-skid lining which they sit on.
The main body of the rack is made from durable plastic, which makes it tough enough to withstand the occasional knock and prolongs the lifetime of the product. The rack is also very easy to clean and should need no more than an occasional wipe down with a cloth.
The last point about the spice rack is that you are not limited to only using it in a drawer. It can also be used on a countertop or a shelf in your kitchen, if there is not sufficient drawer space to use it in.
If you are looking for a spice rack that has a more traditional look, or that would suit a country-style kitchen which has lots of wood, then this product will appeal to you.
Coming from a company called ‘Seville Classics’ should give you clue that this is not a spice rack that is made from plastic. Instead, it is constructed using bamboo which comes from sustainable sources. Apart from its very traditional look, it is also a very durable material which will help prolong the useful life of the spice rack.
The design has three tiers which are all slanted. These slants mean that any spice jar labels should be easier to read when you are searching for a particular spice when you are cooking.
Its size means that this spice rack should be able to fit in most standard drawers, however, if it is more convenient or you simply want to display it, (and given its beautiful design, why shouldn’t you?) it can be placed on a countertop.
Another spice rack that is easy to use, saves you storage space in your kitchen and makes finding an individual spice for any recipe very easy indeed.
A spice rack should help you in the kitchen not hinder you, so having angled shelves which allow you to read spice jar labels more easily puts this spice rack on the right side of that equation.
Spice jars tend to be either square or round, however, some spice racks can only accommodate one or the other. Thankfully, that is not the case with this spice rack, which can hold both round and square jars. The jars, regardless of their shape, sit in non-slip recesses so you won’t find them rolling about your drawer when you open it.
The other thing that shouldn’t move is the rack itself. This is thanks to the non-slip feet it sits on which keeps it from sliding around in the drawer.
While there are not likely to be any problems with your spice rack, if there ever are any, you have the benefit of a lifetime warranty.
All the spice rack drawers we have reviewed will provide you with a simple and convenient solution to storage in your kitchen, especially when the space you have is limited. The other great thing is they will all do it for less than $20.
