You've got big plans tonight for dinner if only you could find the right pot to make it in. Here are our best tips for organizing your cookware so your pots and pans are always within easy reach.
Protect your pots and pans
If at all possible, don't nest your frequently used cookware — you'll waste time sifting through for the right size and wind up with scratches and dents. If you just don't have enough
space to unstack, protect pots with paper plates nestled between them. Don't skip this tip: Usually used to cushion glassware, rubberized shelf liners (such as the Container
Store's $3-a-roll Easy Liner) can protect pots, pans, servers, and more from damage — and your nerves from noise. Cooper-Core 6-qt. sauté pan, $390, 3-qt. sauté pan, $315,
