Our kitchen is the heart of our home, as we spend a lot of time cooking up delicious food with our family and friends. If you spend most of your time in the kitchen, it's common knowledge that, well, it can get suuuper messy sometimes. 

Whether it's random kitchen appliances or ingredients, the process of cooking can be a chaotic disarray. Most of the time, it puts us off the mood to cook, and it'll certainly help if someone out there would tell us how to organise our kitchen better.

Well, consider this your lucky day. We've compiled a list of 14 essentials that will help you organise your kitchen:

1. Storage rack | RM18 - RM49

If your kitchen appliances, like microwaves and ovens, always take up a lot of space on your kitchen counter, these storage racks will definitely come in handy when you're looking to optimise limited kitchen space.

They come in several styles and tiers in either black or white, to suit your kitchen aesthetic.

2. Seasoning rack | RM28 - RM38

Upgrade from stockpiling your seasonings in dusty drawers or huddled on your kitchen counters by getting these racks, where you'll be able to see all your cooking essentials organised.

They come in a variety of two to three tiers in black and white.

Wanna save more space? You can get these spice racks that you can mount to your kitchen wall. These will make it easier for you to use when cooking, as everything is just a reach away and you'll be able to see all your spices clearly.

A dispenser... that dispenses the rice that we store? BRB, adding this into my own shopping cart.

This rice dispenser will absolutely allow you to stop hoarding random containers, or put your sacks of rice in ugly boxes. There's no need to set aside a cup to scoop them out either, as it also comes with its own cup. It can even store items like flour, whole grains, pet food, and more.

You can get it here.

This is for all you plastic bag hoarders out there. This storage box changes the plastic-hoarding game, as it stores your plastic bags and dispenses them for you so you don't have to dig through the drawers and cupboards to find them.

8. Airtight food container | RM1.79 - RM7.95

This kitchen essentials list would be incomplete without these airtight food containers. With these containers, you'll be able to keep your food items fresh and last longer. They come in various sizes and capacity.

9. Pot rack organiser | RM6.98 - RM45.98

Pots and pans may break my bones... Wait, that's not how it goes. Well, these racks for pots and pans will help you save space and organise them in drawers and cupboards.

While we already store them in drawers or under kitchen sinks normally, at least these will stop you from putting them in a pile and save your household members from listening to the clanging of you trying to reach for one.

You can get them here.

10. Pot rack shelves | RM21 - RM45

If you prefer shelves instead, you can get these pot racks. With the options to put them on the ground in a corner of your kitchen or under the sink, this pot rack is versatile and practical for keeping your pile of pots and pans off the kitchen counter.

11. Dish racks | RM38.99 - RM64.99

13. Storage box organiser | RM3.90 - RM25

The part of the kitchen we dread the most (at least, for me, personally) is definitely the drawers.

With piles of knives, ladles, and various kitchen utensils all shoved into the drawers, it's easy to have an 'out of sight, out of mind' mentality. Well, until you have to open a drawer and find that specific ladle to use to cook tom yam.

These storage boxes will help you compartmentalise all your kitchen utensils and not cause a mess.

You can get them here.

14. Wall-mounted utensil holder | RM11.90 - RM15.50

Speaking of utensils chaotic arrangements, you can also get these wall-mounted utensil holders for storing your most-used utensils while saving space. These utensil holders can hold a heavy load, so you can also hang some pans on them.
