Tubby Organizer from Umbra

How do you store your kitchen utensils? I have my ever-increasing stash of wooden spoons, whisks, spatulas, and mixing paddles stuffed into a big jar next to the stove. I like having these tools near to hand, but the shorter whisks get lost in the bottom, and the tall spoons seem to take up too much space. So I found this organizer from Umbra a rather refreshing idea.

There are five connected cylinders, from 2″ to 4″ diameter, and from 4″ to 7.5″ tall. Overall size is 6.5″ x 8″ x 7.5″. This seems useful for organizing different sizes and heights of kitchen utensils – even silverware and serving spoons.

I won’t exchange my nice big jar for this, but if I was setting up a kitchen from scratch I might go for it.
