The RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of a product is the price at which the manufacturer or wholesaler recommends that the retailer sells the product and is not necessarily the price at which it has been offered for sale in the market.
Choosing the right kitchen utensil holder for your needs
A utensil holder is a handy storage solution for housing your kitchen utensils and kitchen tools. They will keep your most-used items within easy reach as well as prevent drawers and countertops from becoming overcrowded and disorganised. At Kitchen Warehouse we have different utensil holders to suit every storage needs, including modern utensil pots, colourful stoneware utensil jars and wooden utensil holders. To choose the right one for you, consider the type of utensils you have, available space and kitchen style.
Types of utensil holders to choose from
Utensil holders come in different shapes and materials that make them suitable for different kitchen spaces and styles. The most popular types of utensil holders include:
Countertop - This is the most common type of utensil holder. It is usually round with an open top and is designed to sit on bench tops. You can fill these holders with spoons, spatulas and more.
In-drawer - For something a little different, an in-drawer utensil holder, also called a drawer insert, is flat and compartmentalised for storing different utensils. These are commonly used for forks, spoons, knives and other flat utensils.
Rotating - A rotating utensil holder will turn around so that you can easily select the utensil you need. The Avanti Stainless Steel Rotating Utensil Holder has 3 compartments for keeping utensils organised.
Wall-mounted - These utensil holders can be attached to the wall for small kitchens that lack storage space on countertops or in drawers.
Wooden - A wooden utensil holder will add a warm, rustic charm to your kitchen and is sturdy enough to hold a wide variety of utensils.
Metal - A metal utensil holder, such as stainless steel, is durable and typically dishwasher-safe for an easy clean.
Silicone - Silicone utensil holders are non-slip on countertops and are flexible and dishwasher-safe.
A heavy base is important
A heavy base means that your utensil holder will be sturdy and stay firmly planted on the countertop without tipping over. Le Creuset Stoneware Utensil Jars are made from quality enamelled porcelain and come in a range of stunning shades.
Stoneware, stainless steel and more - factors to consider when buying a utensil holder
These factors will help you to choose a utensil holder that fits your kitchen space and meets your storage needs:
Material - Utensil holders can be made from wood, stainless steel, cast iron, plastic, tin and much more.
Design - There are traditional cylindrical utensil holders, rotating utensil holders and ones with compartments and hidden spoon rests.
Style - You can find utensil holders in classic shades like white, antique cream and black, natural wooden utensil holders, modern stainless steel and enamelled stoneware in soft and bold shades.
Functionality - A quality utensil holder will securely hold your utensils and keep them upright and organised.
Ease of use - Choose a utensil holder that provides easy access to the utensils. A cylindrical holder lets you lift utensils out that you need while a rotating holder lets you turn the holder around to find utensils stored at the back.
Size - Consider the amount of utensils you have as well as the type and size of them to determine the size of utensil holder you need.
Ventilation - A utensil holder with holes in it will let you store wet utensils and drain the water out into the sink.
Use your utensil holder as a decorative piece on your countertop
Utensil holders aren't just functional, they are stylish too! Consider these factors for choosing a utensil holder that will pull double-duty and elevate the look of your kitchen:
Space considerations - For small kitchens, an enamelled stoneware utensil jar will be a dainty and space-saving solution. The Chasseur La Cuisson Utensil Jar in Duck Egg Blue is a stunning choice. If you have more space, consider a rotating utensil holder or multi-compartment holder by Avanti.
Matching style Pair your utensil holder with other items in the range for a unified look. The Typhoon Living Utensil Holder in Blue can be matched with other storage pieces from the same collection, including mug, kettle and kitchen scales.
Statement pieces - The Falcon Enamelware Utensil Holder in White with Blue Rim has a vintage design that can also double as a gorgeous vase for flowers in the centre of the table.
