For some reason, pots and knives get preferential treatment when it comes to storage. They usually get their own unique storage location like the racks and blocks. Sometimes, ladles, large spoons and whisks get to share the pot rack. However, there is always at least one drawer in the kitchen which is a menagerie of tools and implements without rhyme or reason to their organization. This does not mean these tools are second class citizens. They are indeed crucial to the kitchen. We're talking meat pounders, temperature gauges, pastry scrapers, 2 tine forks, cheese graters, pizza cutters, sharpening stones, can openers, ice cream scoops, cork screws and a multitude of other items. All important especially when you can't find one in the jumbled mess. I suppose if you had lots of room in your kitchen you could make special organized places for them too but if you did then that old tradition of having those messy, jumbled drawers would disappear and nothing would ever taste the same somehow because of it.
