Spices are a necessary arsenal in every cook’s workspace but a space consuming one in a New York City kitchen, or kitchenette (as the case may be for many). But fear not cooks: We have some ideas for your seasonings and food embellishments and some of them are quite attractive. Here are five of our favorites:
Dean & Deluca Spice Tube Racks
It’s like you’re a mad scientist cook—these test tube vials are held in place by a stainless steel wire rack. They take up little counter space, are attractive and come with an especially designed spoon. At $105, it’s definitely a splurge but if a small footprint and a conversation piece is a priority, you won’t be disappointed.
Everything Spice Kit
This set from by Gneiss Spice includes 24 magnetic hexagonal jars of organic spices, that together look like a beehive. Order a separate metal wall place if you plan on storing the jars on a wall or backsplash. Otherwise stick ‘em to the fridge and you’re good to go.
Bamboo In-Drawer Spice Rack
Putting spices in a drawer is an easy way to free up some space in the cabinets and have them be out of sight. This drawer rack from Williams-Sonoma will help you do just that by holding 12 jars and at $14.95 you have little to lose and all the space to gain.
The simple Ikea birch rack can get your spices off the counter and onto a wall. Stain or paint it any color you like. Use one or multiples depending how many jars you have and enjoy paying $3.99 for each unit!
Soho 12-Piece Stainless Steel Container and Small Board Set
Here’s another magnetic style spice set. Each airtight stainless steel finished container keeps up to three ounces of your favorite fresh. And the metal board that comes with could be installed on a convenient wall for easy reach.
