Pot lids always seem to be in the way. They slither off pots in cupboards, and get pushed into teetering piles to make way for stacks of pots and pans. They never seem to stay put, and for a long time the storage for my pot lids just drove me batty. Then I got these incredibly inexpensive little lid racks from IKEA — they're going strong and I love them!
These pot lid racks are from IKEA's RATIONELL VARIERA kitchen fittings line. They are only $3, and they mount very easily on the wall with two screws. (Screws that are not included, I hasten to add. IKEA only gets you so far.)
They've been the perfect solution for my pot lids; in fact, I just bought a second rack to hold a few more stray lids. They look nice on the wall, and the lids stay put without any fuss.
The only drawback is that the racks currently aren't listed on the IKEA website as available. The website has been especially erratic lately, though, and I found this rack at IKEA just last weekend. So I think they are still available — just not through the website.
Do you use one of these racks? How do you store your pot lids?
