It is best to store spices away from light and heat, but often that means they are somewhere, well, dark. If you don't have a drawer for your spices, then they are probably in a cupboard or pantry, and if you are anything like us, that means that bottles are always getting lost in the back. So we like the look of the SpiceStack, a product that promises to keep your spices out of the way, yet easy to access; up in the dark cupboard, but still easy to find.
The SpiceStack is a little box that sits in your cupboard, and the big point of it is that it's designed to fit your own spice bottles. So you don't need to buy a whole separate batch of bottles and start a new system; you can just plunk your own bottles into the rack. Each tray of bottles can be pulled out and down for easy access, and you can even label each tray so you can find just what you're looking for at a glance.
We have not tried this SpiceStack in our own kitchen, but we think it might be a great option for storing your spices out of the way.
• Find it: The SpiceStack, $24.95-$34.95, depending on size. It comes in 18-bottle and 27-bottle sizes.
