Hang Cooking Utensils

Cooking utensils hanging from racks either in professional or at-home kitchens give cooks a convenient place to store their cooking utensils with easy access. These cooking utensil racks also add a decorative touch to your kitchen that gives it an old-world appeal. Hanging cooking utensils in your kitchen also frees up cabinet space, which is especially useful in smaller kitchens. Does this Spark an idea?


Hang Cooking Utensils

1. Purchase a cooking utensil rack. You can procure a simple, plain one consisting of one straight metal rack, or you can buy a fancier, decorative one that has iron arches.

2. Assemble the rack if necessary. Some racks are packaged already assembled, whereas others are not. Assembly usually only consists of screwing two pieces to together.

3. Mount the rack either on the wall or bottom of the cabinet above your stove or from the ceiling using the screws and screwdriver. Racks that only hold small utensils, such as spatulas and spoons are ideal above the stove. Racks that will hold pots and pans in addition to small utensils are ideal hanging from the ceiling.

4. Place the hooks on the utensil rack, spacing them 4 or 5 inches apart or adjusted as necessary.

5. Hang your pots, pans and utensils on the rack, taking care to distribute the weight evenly so that the rack does not tilt crookedly. This is not an issue with simple, straight racks that are secured to the wall or underside of the cabinet above your stove.
