I have a very small kitchen which means I have limited storage space. I have all of my pots, pans and skillets crammed into one cabinet which often makes them difficult to get to because I have to move everything to get to the one I want to use. It looked like this:
It's not bad, but certainly not as functional as I'd like it to be. I saw this pin for a skillet organizer and knew I had to have one. For only $9.00 at Lowe's, it's definitely a bargain.
The skillet organizer fits in the corner of the cabinet. It also comes with screws to anchor it on the shelf. I didn't even bother screwing it in and it works just fine. It has a plastic coating and doesn't slip or move around.
Each skillet fits on it's own little shelf and is nicely organized. Now I can just pull out the skillet I need without having to move all the other skillets out of the way. As a bonus, the non-stick coating on the skillets doesn't get damaged from scraping on the other skillets! Plus, I'm a neat freak and seeing things nicely stacked and organized just makes me really happy!
Here's the before and after.
The white wire racks on the bottom shelf are something I installed when we first moved into the house. They are absolutely fantastic because they pull out and help you reach things on the very bottom shelf in the back of the cabinet. You don't have to be down on your hands and knees to get something.
