Whether you have a small kitchen or one fit for a world-class chef, you can make the most of your cooking space with the right storage solutions. Check out our favorite kitchen storage ideas that will take your kitchen to the next level. (We even found a solution for that cut avocado that you thought was a lost cause.)

These cool silicone covers will rescue your orphan avocados; they even have "pit pockets" so you can store it with or without the pit. Simply pull the cover over your avocado half until it's completely covered, then put in the fridge.

Now that we've got you sorted with an avocado cover, what about the rest of your fruit and veggies? That's where these handy containers come in. Use them to store remaining halves of onions, oranges, tomatoes or apples. The container creates an airtight seal, so you can just pop them in the fridge. Each set comes with three different sizes for your produce variety.

Anyone who loves to cook with fresh herbs has experienced the struggle of keeping them from wilting too quickly. These cool containers will help you keep your herbs around for a long time. Fill each container with an inch or two of water, then put the herb bunch inside. They fit perfectly in your fridge door, too.

Made to look just like the paper egg cartons in the supermarket, this one is ceramic and long-lasting. Use it to store raw or hardboiled eggs. This stoneware piece was crafted by artisans in Portugal and is dishwasher safe, too.

Stop wasting produce with these handy storage containers. There are non-toxic carbon filters that trap and absorb ethylene gas, which significantly slows down the spoiling process. There's also an elevated removable basket in each container allowing proper airflow. Then, there's a vent on top to allow for adequate humidity levels. It works like magic!

This smart container locks in your homemade guacamole and keeps it airtight, meaning there's no browning when you pull it out the next day. It also doubles as a serving piece so you can take it right from the fridge to your dinner table.

If you like the convenience of sliced cheese but want to avoid the pre-packaged kind, this cheese container has your name written all over it. It holds up to 16 slices of cheese, is dishwasher safe and rocks a snap-top lid. It's also the perfect solution to bring with you to the beach or on picnics for sandwich-making.

Crumbling up your paper flour bag and shoving it back in the cabinet is not keeping it super fresh. Instead, use an airtight container like this immediately after opening. Designed specifically for bags of flour, this container can hold up to a five-pound bag.

This insulated ice-cream container is designed to store your icy treats and allow long, even ice-cream scooping. It's a perfect choice if you love cones or if you're a little obsessive and like your bowls of gelato to look photo-worthy.

If we had to guess, we would put our money on the fact that you probably have a goopy bottle of honey sitting in your cabinet right now. You can avoid that mess forever with this pretty earthenware honey pot. It also comes with a handy wooden dipper which works great on cheese boards.


If cookie baking is a common occurrence in your home, we think it's high time you got yourself a proper cookie storage container. These vintage-inspired carbon steel containers are available in blue or white and come with a bamboo lid. The trick is the silicone lid that seals the cookies and keeps them super fresh.

This dual-purpose tool squeezes and stores your lemons. Use it for cooking or making cocktails, seafood and salad dressings. After you're done juicing your citrus, you can use the silicone seal to store your lemons or limes. Just remember to put it back in the fridge when you're done.

This pretty concrete salt cellar is fashionable and functional. It will look gorgeous sitting on your kitchen counter and is super easy to refill. You can purchase it with or without the cedar lid.
