I'm looking for a spice organizer for my kitchen. we use plenty of spices in our middle east cuisine and as many kinds of spices that I have I still couldn't find a proper tool to store 'em which will not only look nice in my kitchen but will provide me with easy access to them when cooking. I currently keep them in their plastic bags which makes them lose their freshness after some time. Your the best man to ask. Any particular item you recommend?
I like to store my spices in clear glass spice bottles. They fit on a turntable which conveniently sits by my stovetop for easy access. I love to be able to see the spice and grab it for quick use. The glass bottles are also airtight and keep the herbs and spices fresh longer.
The only other thing I would prefer, if space allowed, would be a spice drawer. You can find drawer organizers for this. I think it would be great to have all of my seasonings in one place. Currently my turntable rack only holds 16 jars, so I also have a cupboard shelf devoted to spices.
You can do a search for spice racks by typing in "spice organizer" in google.com or your favorite search engine. You'll find plenty of choices to fit your decor, needs, and budget.
Hope this helps,
