Sometimes, simple is best. And proximity is even better. Today, The Practical Cook celebrates both in her three favorite things. Here they are:
1. Cutlery Organizer. This is my very favorite cabinet upgrade. I designed this kitchen myself, and I have a set of formal cutlery, and an inherited one. They both mean a lot to me, and it’s hard to find a way to store and use it. Bring on the bi-level organizer drawer. It’s built for this, doesn’t take up extra space, and I love it.
2. Countertops. Due to recent kitchen re-org, the countertops are now visible and usable. Huzzah! Nothing is more wonderful than open countertop space in the kitchen. You can make more waffles that way, run 2 projects at once, or have a place to put things down.
3. Dishwasher. With kids, it runs constantly. Better still, they can load and unload it. And with a clean countertop at hand, and the cutlery drawer right there, it’s fast and easy to get the job done. Score one for placement.
