I thought I’d kick off regular posting with an easy mini makeover that I did over the summer break that has made a big difference to my kitchen and didn’t cost a whole lot of money. As you might know, one of my aims this year is to learn to cook a lot more dishes and to learn to love being in the kitchen. For me that can only start with everything in its right place.
Last April I did a big kitchen cupboard makeover which made a big difference, but I was using a slanted document file for my baking pans. At first it was ok, but the big ones didn’t fit and over time it really started to annoy me (way more than it probably should)!
I really didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on finding a solution, but after doing a few hours of online research I realised that here in Australia, there aren’t many options to choose from – especially not if you want one you can adjust to fit your baking pans. After going with the slanted document file and feeling unhappy with it, I knew that compromising on something for the sake of price, would annoy me really quickly.
In the end, the only one I could find that met what I wanted: adjustable, fits lots of pans, sturdy, was the Youcopia StoreMore Bakeware Rack. It was $29.95 from Howards Storage World (here is the direct link), and I could not be happier with it. It fits my large loaf pans, my thin pans and even my plastic lids for my cake storage containers and nothing leans like it’s going to fall out!
It was really simple to put together and it’s genuinely adjustable (not like those ones where they’re only adjustable the first time you use them)! I love that I can grab out a pan without them all falling out and that there’s plenty of room for them. I’m even considering buying a second one for my stoneware, that I purchased last year.
This isn’t sponsored, I just loved the simplicity of it, and sometimes it’s the simple things that make a big difference.
How do you store your baking pans? Do you have a cool storage gadget that made things easier at home?
Note: This post isn’t sponsored, I just love the product and like to share. xD
