Well, I have to say that it is really a headache to store your pots and pans for they come with different sizes and big number. Then do as follows.

Quickest Steps to Organize Pots and Pans in a Small Kitchen


1. You should learn that which of the pots and pans you use frequently and which of them you seldom use. Then make a decision that whether you will put these tools within or out sight. This decision is made based on your preference and the structure of your kitchen. I recommend you put those that you seldom use in the closet or a closed cupboard for these tools may get dusted if they are exposed to the air for a long time which may also cause many bacterias.

There is a rule that always keep the tools frequently used within reach.

2. If you want to put the kitchen tools within your sight, there are several choices that you can make according to the structure of your kitchen and your taste.

If you don’t have so many kitchen tools and you want to make you kitchen look neat, then you had better hide your pots and pans in a cupboard. But make sure you have enough space for your kitchen tools and you’d better sort them out and put them in the separate cupboard.

Some rules that you should obey when storing

1. Don’t bury the pots and pans that you use a lot.

2. Apply paper plate to those that are afraid of scratching. Some of your most desirable nonstick cookwares may be easy to scratch, and it will make you sad if you don’t take care of them.

3. Full the bottom with the heaviest piece. As time goes by, there may be time that the rack or shelf may not be steady, and the tools may fall down and damage the others.

4. Pile your pots and pans vertically.
