Mr. Food: Spice Up Life

There isn't a day that goes by that we don't turn to our spice rack to add zesty flavor excitement to our cooking. That's why it's so important to have the right one to fit our needs, and if you think a spice rack is just a spice rack, think again! There are simple ones, like this countertop rack that will hold just enough spice jars to meet our basic needs.

Check out this acrylic tower! Its interlocking stacking design is both functional and decorative for our countertops! And these turn easily so that finding our spices is a breeze.

For example, this Select-A-Spice Carousel holds 12 dispensers on a rotating base.
Each one has a shaker top for sprinkling on seasonings, a large mouth for easy spooning and, check this out: it automatically measures and dispenses spices with the turn of a dial! And if counter space is at a minimum, this one fits conveniently in a drawer, tucking our spices away but keeping them handy.

Here's a mini one with an adhesive backing that we can attach to the inside of a pantry or cabinet for a few favorites at our fingertips. The shelves on this pull-down tri-level variety all lower for easy access, and no matter the spice rack we have, remember that herbs and spices don't spoil, but they do lose their strength.

Keep 'em away from the heat and replace them once a year, so they'll always pack a punch in our recipes for the best-tasting "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
