3. Longer-lasting utensils
By keeping your knives and kitchen tools clean and dry, you’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come. Having a utensil holder in your kitchen can prolong the life of your kitchen utensils.
4. Reduces the risk of injury
Sharp, pointed cooking tools present a significant risk of injury. If these tools are stored loose in the cutlery drawer, it’s easy to cut yourself when reaching inside. You can reduce this risk by using a utensil holder.
The different types of utensil holders
Kitchen utensil holders do not come in one standard, default design. The square box design is a classic, coming in an array of sizes for storing all kinds of kitchen tools, from ladles and whisks to kitchen shears. Other utensil holders are made in the style of a cup, but much heavier and more stable so that they don’t tip over when you’ve filled them with utensils. Some utensil holders are even equipped with an anti-slip silicone pad so that they grip to the surface.
Special utensil holders for kitchen knives
Our range also includes utensil holders which have been specifically designed for storing kitchen knives. They differ from traditional knife blocks in both their design and functionality. When it comes to looks, a knife holder resembles a kitchen canister, but the lid features slots where you can insert your knife blades so you can store your knives safely with the blades down.
Top tip: a utensil holder can also make an excellent kitchen canister
Some of our products are a utensil holder and kitchen canister in one. When you take the lid off a knife holder, you’re left with a stylish canister made out of wood, for example, which you can fill with sugar, salt or other herbs and spices.
The utensil holders available on the ZWILLING online store are exclusive in design and make for an eye-catching addition to your kitchen. For a more organized kitchen, shop wooden or ceramic utensil holders and kitchen canister sets here.
