Appetizers are also a must at a baby shower. You should have a variety of different types. Be sure to have some vegetarian ones since many people donít eat meat these days. Keep in mind that seafood allergies, especially to shellfish are also common.

Also consider....

2) HOW MANY SPICES DO YOU USE? If you use a lot of different spices, would you like one large single-level or multi-tiered shelf spice rack that holds all of them? Or like me, would you like a few different spice racks clustered in one area ofrepparttar kitchen? If you only keep a few spice jars, then perhaps a spice rack that holds six to eight spice containers is sufficient (especially if your space is limited to a small area ofrepparttar 148533 kitchen). And if it's a gift for someone else, visualizerepparttar 148534 available space they have in their kitchen. You don't want to give someone a gorgeous spice rack that they have to stuff in a closet for lack of a place to put it.

3) CAN YOU CONVENIENTLY ACCESS THE SPICES? For instance, if you hang a vertical double-shelf spice rack on a wall underneath a kitchen cabinet, you need enough room betweenrepparttar 148535 spice containers onrepparttar 148536 top shelf andrepparttar 148537 underside ofrepparttar 148538 kitchen cabinet to be able to easily remove and replacerepparttar 148539 spice containers. You don't want to keep scraping your knuckles againstrepparttar 148540 wood onrepparttar 148541 underside ofrepparttar 148542 cabinet. Wherever you plan to putrepparttar 148543 spice rack, it's probably a good idea to measurerepparttar 148544 intended space for it and then compare that torepparttar 148545 dimensions ofrepparttar 148546 product listed on its sales box before you purchase it.

4) ARE YOU BUYING A SPICE RACK WITH OR WITHOUT SPICES? Some spice racks come complete with full containers of spices and others come without jars or containers of spices. Some spice racks don't even use typical container or jars; instead you fill them and then turn a dial forrepparttar 148547 measured spice amount to filter through a dispenser, which is removable fromrepparttar 148548 spice rack.

Remember that you're trying to save space when buying home organization gadgets. So if you buy a spice rack complete with new spices, you'll just have to storerepparttar 148549 new or existing set of spice jars inrepparttar 148550 pantry untilrepparttar 148551 spice jars in use need a refill.

And if you buy a spice rack with containers, make sure they're what you want. Some are glass jars; others aren't. Some have corks as lids; others have screw tops. Some come with snap on sifters or shaker ports. Also check to see ifrepparttar 148552 jars come pre-labeled or with an extra set of blank labels.

5) WHAT MATERIAL COMPRISES THE SPICE RACK? You can find spice racks or spice shelving in many types of material: wood, acrylic, metal/stainless steel/wire, plastic or chrome. What matchesrepparttar 148553 style of or colors of your kitchen? Or ifrepparttar 148554 spice rack isn't going to be clearly on view, maybe you're just interested in a durable material or one that wipes clean easily.

6) DO YOU LOVE. IT? Spice racks are very durable products. You'll be seeing your spice rack choice in your kitchen for a long time.
