Using the right spice rack organizer for your space and needs can make the difference between feeling harassed in the kitchen and having an enjoyable cooking experience. Who likes to frantically look through dozens of jars in search of the cayenne pepper?
Consider these points when selecting a spice rack organizer:
- Are spices included? This is not necessarily a good thing. Spices provided by a spice jar manufacturer are not necessarily the freshest, and they may not be the ones you use.
- Are jars included? Watch out for jar sizes. If they are so small that you can only fit part of a typical jar of store-bought spice in them, you are going to either end up throwing away a lot of spice or having more clutter than when you started.
- Measure the space you have available and compare carefully with the product specifications. Returning items is always an effort and not all vendors will cover the shipping and handling expense. Best to get exactly what you need by measuring carefully beforehand.
- Some spice rack organizers require assembly and special tools to fix them in place. Some of us are not meant for such projects. Consider your own capabilities.

Don’t forget that you will need to allow for clearance when installing a door spice rack. The rack (with the spices on it) needs to work around the placement of your cupboard shelves.
