Would you like to know one of my least favorite things? It’s when you have to hunt for a wooden spoon or spatula in a too-full drawer. You usually end up grabbing the wrong thing once or twice before finding what you’re looking for. And, inevitably, that drawer eventually gets jammed, making things all the more frustrating. Which is why I love my utensil crock.
It sits to the right of my stove, holding all of my favorite kitchen helpers for easy grabbing. It keeps me organized, which I can, um, always use more of. Here are the kitchen tools that are always in my utensil crock, ready to lend a hand from dinner to dessert.
(And which utensil crock do I own? A large one from Le Creuset! It’s beautiful and sturdy.)
