But in my recent quest to maximize and organize every inch of my small kitchen, I decided to take it on. By adding a few specific organizational items I was able to hugely increase the function of this corner.
No longer are my pots and pans scattered haphazardly or my lids awkwardly piled up.
It actually makes me giddy to open up the cabinet and easily slide out the pan I need for scrambled eggs.
While this was fine for our stainless steel, I noticed all the stacking and moving was scratching up our non-stack pans. Turns out you aren’t supposed to stack non-stick pans because it can chip the coating.
Since I actually have quite a few frying pans, I purchased two white towers and placed them on the bottom rotating shelf. It’s a great trick for keeping belongings in check – provide a defined space or number and don’t allow yourself to go over. But don’t be afraid to stack stainless steel pots and colanders on your lazy susan In my case, they are made of stainless steel, so I wasn’t as concerned about scratches. Turn large pot lids around to save space in your corner cabinet This places the knob or handle inside the pan, instead of sticking up awkwardly.
As a bonus, it keeps the lid with the pot which makes it easy to find when you need it. Want to know my absolute favorite Dollar Tree organizing product? This $1 white metal organizer is incredibly multipurpose and so cheap, you won’t feel guilty buying one (or four!) It stores the lids vertically and makes it easy to grab what you need.
In conclusion, a corner cabinet lazy susan doesn’t need to be a dumping ground. And be sure to follow me on Instagram @smallishhome for more small home organization tips and tricks!
