Tags:

When you’re in the middle of cooking a homemade meal, there’s nothing worse than pawing through a disorganized array of seasonings and zests in a frantic search for the misplaced cayenne pepper (Or basil. Or oregano.) that you swore you *just* saw. “If only I had a spice rack,” you hear your logical inner voice say for the zillionith time.

If you’ve been holding out on buying one of these transformative organizational tools, we’re here to tell you that they’re more than worth the investment. Not only will they keep your countertop, cabinet, drawer, or lazy Susan free from the total and utter chaos that can ensue when your spices begin to overtake your kitchen, they’ll help you easily determine which ones you already have in your collection — and which ones are missing.

Where can I buy a spice rack?

You won’t need to look too far to find a great spice rack — there are plenty of solid options to be found almost anywhere home goods are sold (think Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, and The Container Store, to name a few).

More importantly than where you’re looking, then, is the type of spice rack you’re looking for, which will all depends on your individualized kitchen needs.

The Best Rack for Your Kitchen

When shopping for a seasoning holder, you’ll want to take the layout of your kitchen into account. If you’re short on counter space, for instance, it will make a lot more sense to opt for a hanging plate ($22.99, Amazon) that won’t take away room you might have otherwise used for a kitchen appliance, such as a coffee maker or juicer, than it would to pick up a counter carousel (35.99, Bed Bath & Beyond).

If you’re the type that prefers to hide things away completely, a pull-out ($35.99, The Container Store) or drawer rack ($11.99, The Container Store) will efficiently organize all your flavoring while keeping it out of sight.
