10 Editor-Approved Knife Storage Solutions That’ll Keep Blades Sharp and Organized
While we at Kitchn like to talk about things that you need for optimal kitchen organization, we also like to tell you about things you don’t need. And one item on your counters that it’s probably time to replace is your knife block. Not only do professional organizers agree that they take up too much counter space, but they can also dull your knives and even harbor bacteria. That’s why we’re here to round up some of our favorite knife storage solutions, including magnetic knife racks, in-drawer knife storage, and even redesigned knife blocks. These are utensil storage solutions that will not only save your blades, they’ll also make life easier in the kitchen.
Ahead, we’ve picked out some of our editors’ favorite ways to store knives, including products we’ve raved about before. You’ll find a few wall-mounted solutions if you’re really after saving space, as well as some counter organizers that are surprisingly slim and specially designed to maintain the sharpness of your blades. No matter which option works best for your kitchen and budget, we’re confident that upgrading your knife storage will give you a little bit of peace and mind the next time you cook.
