When we launched the Kitchen Cure, we asked people to tell us about the problems they had with their kitchens. One issue that came up many times was the problem of where to store pot lids.

Faith and I have two different solutions. Mine isn’t perfect by any means, but for me it solves the problem and gets those clanky lids out of my way.

I keep my pots on a hanging pot rack, and my lids on top of the rack. With 36″ x 18″ of horizontal space, it seems silly to keep them anywhere else. Of course, not being seven feet tall, I have to hoist myself up onto a stool in order to access the lids, but I don’t mind this occasional ritual.

Tomorrow Faith will show us her lower-to-the-ground solution. In the meantime, tell us your pot lid storage solutions.
