Share Article

The economic crisis has brought home cooking back in style. American consumers should get organized in the kitchen to save time, money and stress. The SpiceStack spice rack was invented by actual cooks to keep store-bought spices organized and fresh in the kitchen cabinet. Cooks armed with a SpiceStack will appreciate always knowing which spices they own and where they are located for quick and easy at-home meal preparation.

SpiceStack organizes 18 spice bottles in your kitchen cabinet

Spice organization is a problem area in many kitchens because bottles need to be easily accessible, yet out of the way and safe from light and heat. Fancy spice racks that take up space on the countertop and dictate spice selection are simply not useful for the modern day cook.

As a result of the economic crisis, 43 percent of American consumers are spending less at restaurants than they did compared to a year ago, according to a survey by Norcross, Ga.-based hospitality research firm A Closer Look. Tough times have brought comfort food and at-home cooking back in style. Being organized in the kitchen saves time, money and stress.

When cooking meals at home, it's important to have a well-stocked pantry and knowledge of what foods you actually own in order to avoid last-minute trips to the grocery store. Pantry staples should include pasta, rice, canned soups and vegetables, baking ingredients, oils, and spices.

The SpiceStack was invented by actual cooks to best keep store-bought spices organized and fresh in the kitchen cabinet. Cooks armed with a SpiceStack will appreciate knowing which spices they own and where they are located for quick and easy at-home meal preparation.
