How many of you out there still have a spice rack nailed on the wall? Or, spices in various places throughout your Kitchen? Time to be current and get organized. Last week we rated the Spice Drawer Insert a 1 carat due to its lack of flexibility in fitting larger spice jars in the drawer. This week and next we will concentrate on spice storage in the base cabinets.
On the left you will see my 2 carat rating this week – the Island end caps that Dura Supreme offers. The island has become almost a standard in today’s kitchen. It is the area where a lot of the prep and work tasks are done. Spice storage in the island is definitely convenient especially when it is facing the cooking surface. When looking at spice storage in the island end cap unit, we can order the cabinet with or without doors. Do you want your spices exposed (organized and easy to get to), or hidden away? This unit has 3 1/8” deep shelves. The middle two shelves are adjustable. Got a lot of spices? Order more shelving loose with your order and pop them in. The end posts come in 2 sizes and MANY design styles to go with any kitchen style you prefer.
This unit gets a 2 carat rating. The flexibility is great for spices and oils, but it can only be placed on an island end or cabinet run. It makes the spices and oils accessible near the work/prep area. Take the time to alphabetize your spices in this unit and you will never be searching for a particular spice again.
