How to Store Pots and Pans Like a Pro

Hang Overhead

Hanging pots and pans is a great way to save cabinet space while also keeping everyday items within reach. Hang a pots and pans organizer over the kitchen island. You can make one yourself with lengths of copper pipe and S-hooks.

Hang Under the Island

If you don’t have the cupboard space and don’t want to hang your pots and pans overhead, the island is a good solution. You may give up some sitting space, but you will have your pots and pans organizer within easy reach. Anchor some S-hooks under your island counter and hang away.

Magnetic Knife Strip

This is a good solution for small kitchens with too many pot lids. You can buy magnetic knife strips at home stores. Leave some space on the end for smaller pot lids.

Open Cabinet Shelves

If you don’t mind having your cookware visible, try some open cabinet shelves. Open shelves can be sized to fit your kitchen and will allow you to stack your pots and pans.

Hang Pots and Pans Under a Shelf or Cupboard

If you have a shelf or cupboard with room underneath, try adding some hooks to hang your pots and pans organizer. They’ll be easy to reach!

Deep Drawers

Deep drawers work great for storing cookware, just be sure to have enough space to set your pots and pans in one layer so they’ll be easier to pull out. Roll-out cabinet drawers make it easy to retrieve large pots and pans.

Corner Cabinets

If they’re large enough, corner cabinets can be a great storage space for a pots and pans organizer. Just insert a wire-wrack or lazy Susan and you’ll be able to find what you need quickly.

Pantry Pegboard

Your pantry may be the best spot for your pots and pans organizer. Just hang a basic pegboard on the inside of the pantry door and add some pegs. You can hang your pots and pans, and other kitchen gear as well.

Hang on the Wall

If you have wall space that isn’t occupied by cupboards, try hanging your pots and pans on the wall. Attach a board or metal railing to the wall and add some hooks. Choose hooks that allow the pots and pans to rest flat against the wall.
