Additionally, these spice racks will act as decorative pieces. The other amazing thing is that these models can allow you to use adhering grips inside cabinets store spices in vertical space. Most of these racks are more permanent solutions, while others like the magnetic potions will need you to transfer your spices to magnetic tins.

2. In-Drawer

The in-drawer is the perfect option if you don't like the idea of having your spices on your countertop. These options will fit perfectly in your kitchen drawers, and they will allow you to arrange the spice containers inside in a horizontal position. In addition, most of them have adjustable dividers that allow your jars to stay in position. This way, your spice jars will not slide around, creating messes.

3. In-Cabinet 

The in-Cabinet pice racks will work more like the in-drawer, but these are fitted in the kitchen cabinets. Most of them are stylish and will make your space look great. Also, they can mostly be used for both horizontal and vertical space for narrow cabinets. These options will keep the counters free, ideal for saving on space.

4. Freestanding 

A freestanding spice rack is mostly the countertop style, but some can fit in cabinets. Most of these can hold many spice jars, and they come with very durable materials like bamboo, metal and plastic. Again they come with very great and unique designs that will make your countertops look great.

What Should I Consider While Buying a Spice Rack?

1. Capacity

While purchasing the best spice racks, you must look at the number of spices you have to get the right spice rack. Also, you wil need to check the sizes of your spice jars to know if they will fit the rack you intend to purchase. Most importantly, ensure that you keep in mind your most-used spices before purchasing. You could take measurements of the spice jars or containers and compare them with those of the dimensions of the rack you want.

2. Adjustability 

You must also check the adjustability of the rack you get especially if you are an avid cook. If you have many spices getting a large spice rack is a great option so that you do have other spices laying around in your kitchen. Also, if you intend to add your spice collection in the future, an adjustable spice rack will come in handy. A smaller spice rack should get the job done if you cook with few spices.

3. Design

Of course, you need to look at the design of the rack you will purchase, especially if you want countertop spice racks. Most racks will come with unique designs that will complement your kitchens. The good thing is there are many designs and colors that you could choose from.

4. Material

Another consideration you need to consider is the material used to make the rack you intend to purchase. You want to get a rack that will not only serve you for a few months but one that will hold your spice collection for a couple of years.

Also, you will need to get a strong rack to hold the spices without them sliding. For example, you could have a spice jar or spice container made of glass, and you want to make sure that they don't fall. Therefore the material used should be strong enough.

Frequently Asked Questions On The Best spice racks

1. Is plastic or glass better for storing spices? 

Both plastic and glass jars will store your spices perfectly, only that you will need to make sure that the lids are sealed perfectly to keep the spices fresh. Also, you will need to store your spices away from direct sunlight for them to stay fresh for long. Storing your spices in plastic or glass jars will work just fine.

2. Is it OK to store spices above the stove?

Storing spices above or near the stove look like a convenient solution, but it is not advisable. The heat emitted by the stove each time you are cooking might decrease the flavors in the spices. In other cases, the heat can even destroy the spices rendering them useless.
