Shake Up The Fridge With Magnetic Spice Jars

Good Cooking Magnetic Spice Jars

There is a large metal box in your kitchen that (hopefully) doesn’t get hot or wet. As it so happens, this large food storage container also allows for storage on the outside. Yup, it’s the fridge we’re talking about here and magnetic spice jars to decorate its surface.

The Good Cooking Magnetic Spice Jars are an affordable spice storage solution. The little dispensers are mostly made of metal, so they do stick to each other as well as to the side of the fridge. Each one has a see-through lid and openings for pouring or shaking. When it comes time to use, just pluck one off of the refrigerator door and shake — assuming that one hasn’t been playing Tetris on the fridge and the one you want to use is buried at the bottom of a shape avalanche.

Tier Up Spices With The Spice Tower Rack

Spice Tower Spice Rack Organizer with Bamboo Top from Lipper International

You know what’s good? Food. You know what makes food better? Flavor. Imparting such upon our edibles has never been easier. Not only are recipes galore only a click or two away, but spices from every corner of the globe can be found either online or in everyday brick-and-mortar stores which have well-stocked shelves to accommodate humanity’s growing palate. But of course, you are gonna need a place to store all those spices.

The Lipper Spice Rack Tower is a two-tier spice rack that opens and closes for easy storage. The spice rack holds eighteen bottles and has a flat bamboo top that can accommodate odd-shaped spice bottles of any size — or odd-shaped pictures, stickers and stamps of spices until that internet order comes in.

Spice Up The Spice Rack With A Twist

Nambe Twist Spice Rack

Spice racks are a generally overlooked item in the kitchen. After all, no matter how good one looks it is what they hold that is infinitely more interesting. However, while you can’t cook with a spice rack, you still have to look at it.

The Nambe Twist Spice Rack puts a spin on the traditional by combining aesthetics and function in one piece of countertop kitchen gear. The rotating unit is comprised of acacia wood and a distinctive metal alloy familiar to Nambe products. Includes 16 bottles with thyme, curry powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, basil, onion powder, tarragon, bay leaf, parsley, rosemary, garlic powder, paprika, coriander, cumin, mustard and chili powder. Although at a price of two hundred bucks the box most likely was sitting around for some time; you may want to replenish some of those spices.

Can the cooking spray

Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer

Flavored olive oil can be a delicious way to season vegetables. Keeping herbs and spices in oil imparts flavor into every drop. That’s lucky considering sometimes all you want is a few drops. Trying to throttle back on the olive oil can be a delicate operation, and for that there is the Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer.

Featuring a brushed aluminum housing, the oil sprayer disperses contents without the use of chemicals or propellants. Standing at almost 8-inches tall, the handy kitchen gadget allows you to precisely control the amount of oil (flavored, or not) that you wish to use.

Spice jar meets measuring spoon

Airtite Auto-Measure Spice Jars

The goal of any good kitchen gadget should be to combine common tasks into one streamlined operation. When measuring out herbs and spices why bother digging out a measuring spoon when you could just integrate one into the jar itself? That’s exactly what is going on with these Airtite Auto-Measure Spice Jars.

Available in either black or white, the 5-ounce spice jar conveniently dispenses dried herbs and spices one-quarter teaspoon at a time. Included is a shaker top for instances where good ol’ fashioned eyeballing it is good enough—which now doesn’t have to be each time since you won’t have to hunt for those pesky measuring spoons.

Flavor your food with Prepara Oil Mister

Prepara Oil Mister

You know those store-bought spray oils in a can that you use for maybe one or two things? Well, say goodbye to those, because the Prepara Oil Mister makes it easy to use not only the oil of your choosing, but to flavor it with herbs and spices too. Simply fill the BPA glass reservoir with oil and whatever you want and the unique filtering system will keep the sprayer from getting clogged.

Use it to add a thin layer of (delicious) oil to salads, or anything else you can think of. I’ve always sparingly used those somewhat off-tasting spray oil cans on air-popped popcorn just to give the salt something to stick to. Now, I can ditch the can entirely and actually add some flavor too.
