Spice Rack Upgrades You Need

View as Slideshow


Just in time for Thanksgiving, three ways to update your spice rack, from thekitchn.com Go magnetic to make use of limited space. The stylish set below by Spice Connection includes jars, a magnetic board, and spices ($51.50 for ten; etsy.com). The Container Store's five-canister set includes tin tubs with clear tops on a magnetic back ($14.99; containerstore.com).


Opt for jars that fit in a drawer. "If you use fewer spices or don't need huge jars, a drawer can be a great way to keep seasonings handy yet organized," says Faith Durand of thekitchn.com. IKEA's Droppar spice jars are two inches high and will fit in most standard drawers ($2.99 for two; ikea.com). Just add your own label.


Watchmaker's cases and Indian spice boxes have small tins nested within a larger case to keep your most-used spices in one place, sealed securely. Try Cost Plus World Market's stainless steel Indian-inspired box (above, $9.99; worldmarket.com) or Lee Valley's watchmaker's tins ($12.80 for a set of fifteen 53-millimeter tins; leevalley.com).
