Spice Racks For The Kitchen

Updated on April 25, 2012

Buying A Spice Rack For The Kitchen

Here's a comprehensive selection of spice racks for the kitchen; Magnetic, wooden, stainless steel, chrome, hanging spice racks, draw spice racks, under cabinet spice racks and even spice lables and refill funnels. You'll find them all below in seperate sections for easy browsing, just scroll down to find the type of spice rack you are looking for.

We're all cooking more and more with herbs and spices and it's easy to accumulate a lot of different kinds for different recipes. The problem is the storage of them. A spice rack means easy access, freeing up cupboard space and having your herbs and spices neatly organized. It's far easier to identify a particular herb or spice on a spice rack than it is rummaging around in a cupboard.

Magnetic Spice Racks

Probably the most contemporary of spice racks, going for the magnetic version is a great way to display and organize your spices, it's also a bit novel too. If you're the kind of person who likes the latest gadgets and gizmos, these are highly likely to appeal.

The magnetic spice racks all look really sleek and stylish, they're a great addition to any kitchen and they look way better than having random spice bottles lying around.

A spice rack would make a great gift for a wedding or housewarming party.

Wooden Spice Racks

Wooden spice racks are the more traditional versions, and if you have a country style kitchen or just prefer the 'classic' look, these are worth considering.

Spice racks went out of fashion a while back but now they are the cool thing to have in your kitchen. It seems that people are experimenting more than ever with their cooking, choosing to use a wider range of flavors than in years gone by.

Spices are really exciting ingredients that add such depth and aroma to dishes, used in existing recipes, they can totally transform a dish from nice to mouth wateringly delicious. Experimenting with flavors is a great way to make cooking and eating more enjoyable, using spices is a pleasure for any cook.

Stainless Steel Spice Racks

If the magnetic options aren't for you, these stainless steel spice racks have the same contemporary feel about them but with a more tradtional spice rack style.

If you want sleek, stylish and ever so sexy in design, these are great options to choose from.

Did you know that in the US, 200 million pounds of herbs and spices are consumed per year, and that figure is growing! Can you imagine just how many bottles of herbs and spices that means that people have in their cupboards? A spice rank is definitely the way forward!

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

Hanging spice racks are great space savers that require little effort to install. If space is an issue this kind of spice rack is definitely worth considering. It's an affordable option that means you can free up cupboard space and have all your herbs and spices neatly organized and easily identified.

You can hang these on walls or doors and they make a great space saving option.

Draw Spice Racks

If you are just looking for storage for your spices and not a way to display them, the next two sections are for you.

If you like your work surfaces clear and free from clutter or maybe you just don't have enough work surface space to display a spice rack, these in draw spice racks are perfect.

You can still keep your herbs and spices neatly organized and easy to find, but this way, housed in a draw. It's a great way to store your seasonings and an affordable option.

Under Cabinet Spice Racks

If lack of space really is an issue, why not consider an under cabinet spice rack? If you don't have work surface or draw space to spare, this is a great alternative way to store your seasonings.

Easy to install and out of the way, choosing an under cabinet spice rack is perfect for small kitchens. Storage can be a major pain if you have a kitchen on the small side, every piece of space is key. This is a great alternative way of storing herbs and spices if you find yourself in that situation.
