How to Store Small Electrics (and their many attachments)

So many of our small electrics for the kitchen now come with so many attachments. In the following picture, I have a food processor and a Ninja Blender/Food Processor.  (It may seem redundant to have both but the Ninja does not slice or grate like my KitchenAid food processor.) I purchased both at Costco and if you all know Costco, everything comes bigger and better.

The food processor and blender both come with 13 attachments plus the motor base.  I don’t have a lot of drawers to store them in so I went to a local store and purchased these deep, excellent containers, with handles, perfect for storing these sort of items.  Inside each container I have loosely put all of the attachments.

The generous dimensions of my containers are 10″ wide by 14″ long and 9.5″ high.  Your cupboards may require different containers depending on the size you are working with. Another great idea would be baskets with fabric liners.

NOTE:  keep your manual with the appliance in these bins.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled it out for the reminder on how to care and clean them (do they go in the dishwasher is the usual question), or look up the recipes that they include with them.

Now they fit nicely in my cupboards, one behind the other.  The more frequently used one is in front, of course.  This is one of those deep corner cupboards so pulling out 2 containers to get to my slow cooker is pretty painless.  I set them on the floor without risking the actual attachments getting contaminated with the stuff on the floor.

It keeps everything looking tidy, but most importantly, together and easy to find.
