Q. I’ve been searching for a covered flatware organizer and can’t find one anywhere. I don’t have kitchen drawers to put an organizer in (I live in an odd, efficiency apartment), and right now I just have an open flatware holder on a kitchen island. I think I’d be less likely to just throw the utensils in there if I had a lid, and they’d stay cleaner. Any suggestions?
A. I was able to find a covered cutlery organizer but I’m not sure how well it would work for your situation–having to remove and replace the lid each time you use it seems like a nuisance. You might want to consider a creative alternative such as keeping a flatware drawer organizer inside a flip-open container–this breadbox is one example.
