Organize Pots & Pans: The Tricks

Left: Stash the items that you use less frequently (stock pots, stand mixer, slow-cooker) in the back since you won’t need them every day. Keep the items that you reach for often in the front like saucepans and frying pans.          
To buy: Roll-Out Cabinet Drawer, $75,

Top right: Lid racks can accommodate more than the obvious. Store cutting boards, muffin tins, and other shallow baking dishes in the rows, staggering them so that each item is at your fingertips.
To buy: Roll-Out Lid Holder, $54,

Bottom right: Adding an over-the-door hook makes it easy to hang oven mitts or a spare dishtowel nearby, but not out of sight.
To buy: Axis Over the Cabinet Hooks, $12 for four,
