This is the time of year when cookie cutters come out of the cupboard and into the kitchen. So it follows naturally that you may also be experiencing dissatisfaction with your cookie cutter storage. They're infrequently used, awkwardly-shaped, and prone to tangle. How do you store yours? I just found a better way to deal with mine...
I don't use cookie cutters frequently enough to create an extra-awesome system for their arrangement (as in this super-duper labeled box from a reader). But I do keep a lot of them stashed away for cookie parties with young friends, and I wanted to keep them tidier and a little more organized.
And this cookie season, I found the perfect box for them! It's a big media box from The Container Store. What makes it so good? Well, it's big and tall enough that I can store my larger cookie cutters on their sides. It also comes with dividers so I can separate Easter, Christmas, and general-purpose cookie cutters.
The box lets me keep them just neat enough for me to find what I want more quickly, without demanding a lot of sorting or organization. There's even room for the discs for my cookie press.
I use a second box for other baking goodies like sprinkles, muffin cups, and decorating supplies.
Find it: Media Box, $9.99 at The Container Store
How do you store your cookie cutters? Do you have a more elaborate system than mine? Or are they shoved in a drawer, like mine used to be?
