Book Description

An organized kitchen is the salvation every busy cook needs! You'll save yourself time, money, and stress—all while whipping up delicious, healthy meals your family and friends will love.

From aprons to zesters, this book provides an A-Z of simple shortcuts that will make all the difference, including:

  • Shelf and storage strategies
  • Five-minute kitchen feng shui
  • When to clean what—with what
  • The right tools for the right tasks
  • The truth about freezing food
  • Meal plans that really work
  • Ten foolproof, must-know recipes—with endless variations
  • The good-enough stocked pantry
  • Leftovers you'll really want to eat

With tips and tricks from master chefs (think Julia Child's pegboard) and real-life home chefs (think Grandma's ingenious pasta pots), this is the only kitchen/food/life organizer you need to streamline your kitchen—once and for all!

The Organized Kitchen: Because you can minimize cooking time and maximize good taste!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! January 22, 2012
We live in a very small home and I ordered this book hoping it would help me organize my kitchen. Boy, did it ever! I got through the entire book in a night and put post-it notes throughout to help me remember the best tips. I used quite a few post-its! The best part of the book is that it is a great book for organizing the kitchen, but the tips can be easily converted to use throughout the home. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a little help organizing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I needed this! January 24, 2012
By Kristen
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been struggling with how to keep my small kitchen tidy and manageable--this book was a big help. I found the ideas to be really practical and didn't call for me to go out and buy a lot of extra storage containers. The book also includes a lot of other cooking information, like terms you need to know when reading recipes, substitutions, and even recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Small Spaces March 10, 2012
My kitchen space is really limited - the lack of drawers and counter space make cooking a real challenge sometimes. The author offers good advice for making the most of small spaces. I'll definitely be implementing some of these ideas, but the biggest take-away for me is the need for a system. No matter if it's cooking utensils or paperwork, I need to develop a system that works and stick with it, instead of being so haphazard!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new or interesting here May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At best this book offers obvious advice like getting rid of tools you don't use. At worst it's just wrong "a pair of kitchen shears works for cutting up a chicken as well as for cutting coupons. There is no need for additional scissors."

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth free May 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this would be an interesting, free download. Alas.

Did you know that the kitchen table is a great place to wrap presents? But be sure to clean it first! Also, some families like to have meetings at their tables.

Perhaps there are a couple of interesting tidbits hidden amongst the drivel, but I am not about to waste my time digging for it. *Removed from device*

1.0 out of 5 stars Got it for free. It wasn't worth that. May 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you follow along with new age mysticism and are into all the latest crazes from Asia, then this is the book for you. Feng shui, energy flows and the like constitute a large part of this books focus. Should you be happy in the kitchen, of course. But I don't need a course in Oriental Design to know what I find comfortable.

It may work for others but for a down to earth guy on a budget, this book was of no help.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Resurce with New Kitchen Chefs May 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a free kindle book with tons of information. I already knew a great deal of I information but there were many items that made me to hmmm. The recipes were simple and I have several I plan on cooking. The organizing tips make sense and I plan on incorporating as I design my new kitchen. More for beginners then those that live in the kitche .

2.0 out of 5 stars Increase your kitchen clutter...! December 20, 2013
I agree with other reviewers that this is NOT for the experienced kitchen person. Furthermore, while detailing ways to get rid of clutter, the author lists entire sets of recommended items. If I got all of those, I'd be INCREASING my kitchen clutter, LOL.
Nothing mind-blowing in this book. Very common sense stuff, mostly, and a lot of completely useless information.

I'm glad I got this free because there is nothing in it that you can't find on the internet, i.e. Pinterest or organization blogs. Don't buy it.

A lot of this is common sense, and some of it seemed a little silly. I would say overall, it was okay.
