While we're mentioning facts, did you know that Saffron is the worlds most expensive spice by weight? It costs approximately $1000 per pound! You would need 50,000 to 75,000 crocus flowers to use the stigmas from to make up that weight and the area they would need to be grow in is the size of a football field!
Chrome Spice Racks
Another contemporary look that's great for the modern kitchen, but what's the difference between chrome and stainless steel, because they look the same, right?
Well stainless steel is just that, but chrome is just a surface thing, a finish, underneath it will be another metal. This usually makes crome cheaper than stainless steel but where spice racks are concerned that isn't always the case as you will see if you compare the prices here to the prices above.
Chrome is nonetheless an attractive finish that looks expensive. It's high shine is very reflective and would look great in a kitchen that gets lots of natural light.
Hanging Spice Racks
