Do you waste time looking for the right knife every time?Are forks and other "intruders" regularly found in the spoon box? Proper storage of cutlery will help to solve all these problems. How to do it correctly - we will tell you in our article Look into your drawer where you store cutlery. What do you see: spoons, knives and forks? It seems so only at first glance - in fact, in this box you keep your habits, lifestyle and time spent on cooking. Some people get by with a couple of good knives, while others in the kitchen need a whole collection of cutlery for different occasions. Regardless of what lifestyle you lead, what the size of your kitchen is and how many teaspoons you prefer to keep close at hand, the correct storage of appliances makes life much easier, because the convenience of cooking depends not so much on where and in what quantity are kitchen trifles, but how they are stored. We talked with a representative of the German company SieMatic and found out which accessories and fixtures ensure the most competent storage of appliances in the kitchen. Simon Reimer, SieMatic:- The utensil storage area contains about a third of everything that is in the kitchen: dishes, cutlery and other items. The principle of the arrangement of accessories here is the same as when organizing any storage: think in advance which items you will use often and which rarely, and based on this determine a more or less accessible storage place for them. Drawer system Drawers are the most common and practical way to store cutlery. Firstly, they do not take up space on the work surface, and secondly, they are always in sight and at hand. To make it easier to find the right item, drawers are usually equipped with special trays or inserts for appliances with many different compartments. German brand SieMatic solves storage problemdevices in a complex and offers not just trays and dividers, but a whole filling system. The design is a unit of several drawers with a width of 25 to 120 cm: the right size can be selected to suit your needs with an accuracy of a millimeter. All internal accessories also adapt to the chosen width. The main finish of the trays can be chosen from three materials: aluminum, wood and plastic. Aluminum parts Aluminum accessories forstorage devices combine three qualities at once: reliability, functionality and laconic aesthetics of modern design. In the SieMatic range of accessories, this effect is achieved through a combination of several materials: aluminum, light oak or dark chestnut and porcelain elements. And for those who do not part with the phone even while cooking, there is a "smart" system with USB inputs, with which you can charge gadgets without interrupting the work process. Wood accessories Wood is the most suitablematerial to make the kitchen more cozy. Even if you are a fan of minimalism or a shiny steel high-tech style, you can introduce wood into the interior locally: for example, in the form of accessories for storing appliances. Depending on the general color scheme, you can choose trays for boxes made of light or dark wood. The latter looks especially interesting in contrast to whites in the style of modern classics. How to fill the boxes In general, for convenient appliancesordinary inserts are enough, but for a greater effect, you can add a few more useful "chips" to the boxes: soft dividers, wooden boxes or knife holders. The latter is especially important because if the knives are placed together in the box, they can grind against each other. Симон Раймер, SieMatic:- Behind every door and drawer, you will discover a new world: unexpected combinations of materials, perfect shapes and maximum practicality. The numerous, thoughtful and elaborate details characteristic of SieMatic combine to form the uniqueness of each individual kitchen, the design of which is both aesthetically pleasing and at the same time functional as never before. Vertical storage Drawers are the most common place for storing cutlery, but not the only one, especially if you have a lot of them. Some of them can be placed vertically: for example, use the inner surface of the kitchen cabinet door for this by attaching shelves or hooks to it. This solution not only provides additional storage space, but also saves space in the kitchen. For this purpose, in 2003 the SieMatic brand developed a special MultiMatic interior filling system, consisting of a special multi-functional rail and shelf holders. This system fits all cabinets and is designed to make storage as efficient as possible and kitchen utensils easily accessible during cooking.
