It is convenient to locate the COOKING zone between food storage cabinets and the sink. This will make it easier to reach and take out products and items you need for daily cooking; and also wash used dishes.

Let’s keep the counters of this zone clean.

Upper level is created to store small items that you need for cooking:

  1. spices;

  2. towels, napkins.

As items that we use for cooking are usually somewhat heavy (pots, sausepans, pans, casseroles) better not to keep them on upper levels. Instead share the upper level with storage zone for items you use not often - vases, jars.

Lower level is ideal for storing everything you touch while cooking:

  1. knives, forks, spatulas are placed into containers or are separated by drawer dividers;

  2. pans are stored with pans: one on top of each other; the same for casseroles;

  3. baking plates can be stored vertically, use shelf dividers from the recommended products.

It is advisable to buy containers of the correct sizes to store food and items properly and safely.
