I hate making a mess when I'm cooking. I'm the type of person who has to clean every spill as soon as they happen lest they spread and make post-cooking cleanup even more of a chore.

Having something designated to keeping your dirty spoons, spatulas and other utensils has kept me organized and, most importantly, has my kitchen clean.

Plus, because they come in so many shapes and sizes, there will surely be one that you'll love.
