Whether your challenge is an impossibly small kitchen, a serial abundance of leftovers in need of kitchen storage containers, or simply the need to spark up your countertop, our kitchen storage solutions will come to the rescue.
For those lacking in cabinet space, making better use of your countertop for some types of pantry storage is a good place to start. Del Rey's Lil' Piggy Canisters are inspired by Food Network's Pat and Gina Neely's brand of down-home charm. The 3-piece set can hold a full five-pound bag of flour, a box of tea bags and a full batch of fresh-baked cookies, as needed. The rubber-rimmed lids seal your goods for freshness.
If potluck dinners, picnics, office parties or tailgating are featured in your social calendar, check out Rachael Ray Potluckers. This line of Stow-A-Way Collapsible Carriers is infinitely useful, keeping hot things hot and cold things cold, featuring padded, easy carrying handles while being styled in beautiful, bright "Rachael" colors. Keeping your kitchen organization needs simplified, all carriers can store flat.
Perhaps the granddaddy of all kitchen storage ideas is the classic Pyrex storage set. Pyrex was ahead of its time creating oven, dishwasher and freezer-safe containers that are also safe for today's microwaves. Not only that, the minimalist designs double as serving dishes, and the lids fit tightly so your food stays fresh. Also popular is the 4-piece round glass storage set by Bormioli Rocco. These Italian-made, thick glass containers are dishwasher and microwave safe and without their lids on can nest for compact storage. Note that unlike the Pyrex containers, however, these are not oven-safe.
