The choice is usually wood, plastic or stainless steel. Stainless steel can be finished in an attractive shiny chrome and a range of colours which looks good in a contemporary kitchen.
Bamboo is currently a popular choice for wooden spice racks as it is very hard and durable. Check that it is eco-friendly and has come from a sustainable source.
Plastic is not always the most solid of materials so read user reviews carefully for product quality if you intend to buy a plastic rack.
Most spice racks major on the fact that they are space-saving and tidy. Your choice of size may depend on where you are going to put the rack.
The number of jars does vary and if you only cook with a few core herbs and spices then a smaller rack may be all you need.
Check jar size and shape as Schwartz have rather infamously changed their original bottle design and the new jars don’t now fit some spice racks. Certain brands will accommodate jars of a larger size which can be a boon for busy cooks.
Circular and rotating designs are very popular because they are compact and focus on ease of usage. These spice racks are also portable and can be kept in a cupboard, on the worktop or moved between the two.
There are some contemporary designs which are intended to make a feature of your spices and these can either be counter top or wall mounted.
Not every design has individual sections for jars – some are simply circular and so will also accommodate packages and odd-shaped items.
As a kitchen aid designed to sit on your work top or in a cupboard, spice racks should last a lifetime. Bamboo is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials you can choose.
Select plastic wisely particularly if you are buying unseen as some spice racks are better made than others.
