I never have to worry about storage any longer for my pancake griddle. After I have used it, let it cool, and wiped it off, I put it in a sturdy 13 gallon garbage bag that has handles. It stays dust free and it hangs neatly in my coat closet out of the way of pots and pans.
I have a very deep corner in my cabinetry where I put a slick linoleum tile on the counter top. I put my blender and my food processor on top of the tile and when I need them I just slide the tile out to the counter edge. They aren't out of sight, but they are out of the way and easy to get to!
To keep my small appliances from cluttering my cabinet top, but still handy I keep the box the appliance comes in. These boxes stack neatly in a smaller place. If I don't have the original box, I find one that it will fit in. I cover these boxes with wall paper or self stick shelf paper. I label the box, so it can be found in a glance. This works for me, as I live in a small apartment. I use lots of small appliances, such as a hand mixer, sandwich maker, waffle iron, and a small food chopper.
