A spice rack is one of those marks of distinction in a house with a great cook. There you will find the rack, the canisters of spice, spoons, pestles, graters, onion goggles, herb bowls, cruets, shakers, funnels and more to buy. Those spice racks made of wood will be the most popular item. Alder wood is a popular type of wood used to make the rack and can be hung on the wall or stood up on the counter. It is covered with a smooth satin lacquer finish and should last for years.
A wall spice rack is more out of the way and looks more presentable than one that sits on a counter. Some of the ingredients that can go into the rack are baking flavors and extracts, seasoning mixes, grilling marinades, grilling seasonings, grinder top seasonings and blends of spices.
Kitchen spice racks that are made of metal are cheaper than those that are made of wood. They look more modern and would fit in well with a more modernized kitchen. Be sure to get stainless steel canisters if you consider getting the metal racks. The back panels of a metal rack can be brushed to provide a textured finish. It is more likely that a wall spice rack made of metal will last longer than a wooden one. The canisters can be magnetized and stuck to the side of a refrigerator, not just the rack. It may help to prevent extra traveling if the rack is on the other side of the room.
