What do you keep in your VERY shallow drawers (under cooktop)
We have a 30 inch cooktop in our island. It is a 3 drawer stack, but the top drawer is very shallow due to the cooktop above, only about 1.5 inches high. I had planned to keep cooking utensils such as ladles, tongs, large spoons there, but they are actually too high.
Any suggestions as to what to keep there? I know we can keep pot holders and dish towels there, but I didn't want to devote so much drawer space to those types of items.
One thing I was wondering about -- has anyone seen a very shallow knife block where the knives are laid flat -- the drawer is too shallow for the typical in drawer knife rack, which has them cutting edge down.
Or, any other ideas on how to make the most of that drawer?
