Kitchen organization: Use in-drawer knife block
Nowadays counter space is premium real estate. There are the regularly used small appliances including the coffeemaker, toaster and blender then there are the items you want to keep at-the-ready, but not necessarily on display. Sometimes putting those items in a drawer does not work because they are difficult to organize or because there are safety concerns. Such can be the case with cutlery, especially knives. I actually have this exact problem. I inherited a extensive set of knives from my grandmother who was a fabulous cook, but I do not like the idea of a knife block on my counter for a couple of reasons: 1) I think they're unattractive, and, 2) I don't think it's a good idea to have knives visible like that with young children in the home. This is where KnifeDock comes in. The KnifeDock in-drawer knife block is an all-inclusive storage solution that is placed inside of a drawer where it can accommodate a variety of knife sizes. It is part of the company's patent pending SlabStab™, which is very attractive and polished looking with layers of flexible dividers made of a combination of food-safe cork and rubber, and that fit nice and snug into the kitchen drawers. The KnifeDock storage solution fits in standard kitchen drawers, minimizes accidents by keeping blades secure, and makes finding the right knife quick and easy because a small portion of the blade is still visible. It is available in two sizes: original (6” x 15” x 2 1/2” high) and deluxe (13” x 15” x 2 1/2" high), which are sold for the reasonable prices of $29.99 and $48.99, respectively. You may have seen KnifeDock at Williams-Sonoma, The Container Store or Bed Bath & Beyond. The company encourages consumers to compare and then save by ordering from KnifeBlock.
