Storing Kitchen Appliances

Storing Appliances in CabinetsIn an effort to regain space in the kitchen, I decided that I needed to find storage places for the various appliances that were cluttering up the counters. Our island has a deep cabinet underneath that wasn't being utilized very well. It works great, but one issue was that I couldn't see what was in the back of the cabinet. I solved this problem by putting labels at the front edges of the shelves. Now I don't have to sit on the floor to know what's back there. Plus it helps remind everyone where everything goes once they are done using it. :)

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.

I have a tiny kitchen which lacks cabinet and counter space, which we are working on adding in the future. For now, I put the electric skillet, toaster, juicer, and popcorn maker on top of the fridge.

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 had a vinyl cover for my food processor. It cracked and fell apart with age. I used a recyclable cloth shopping bag to cover it.


I put the design side next to a wall, and tucked the handles in. I am pleased with the results.

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.

I don't have a lot of counter space in my small kitchen and I've been struggling with all the appliances I have been given recently. Between the Instant Pot, the blender, the stand mixer and the newer air fryer, there is no room for chopping or assembling ingredients.


So, my husband and I needed to rethink our storage ideas.

My kitchen is very tiny and has very small cupboards. I don't know how to store so many appliances.

You can choose the appliances you use the most, keep them easily available and store the rest in another accessable location. In our last house, I stored several less used small appliances in the dining room.

If you have a hall or laundry room, get one of those plastic Plano shelf units for about 15.00 and snap it together in about 5 minutes. Keep them in there till you need them.


There might even be enough room left over for some food, like a mini pantry and storage all in one. PBP

My kitchen is small as well and I took a cabinet that was on the bottom and put my crock pot in it. A few storage bowls and a blender. Try it.

For now, put a sticky on each appliance with the current date and it will tell you how often you use it. Often times a bowl and a wooden spoon will do and less washing up.

Small kitchen appliances can be a challenge to store. They take up a lot of space on your countertop and can be bulky and require too much space in your cabinets.
