Kitchen appliances and utensils are an important part of everyday life as they’re used so often. We often take them for granted, until they’re gone or broken!
That’s why it’s important to prepare kitchen items properly if you’re putting them in storage to avoid searching for them or the heartache of finding them broken.
First step is to have all the appliances cleaned and then left to dry completely. Moisture can cause mold or rust on the non-staineles steel appliances.
Refrigerators with automatic ice makers need to have all the water drained from the automatic ice making system. The instruction manual will tell you how to do this. If you don’t have the manual anymore, try googling the model number which can usually be found on a the back.

Dishwashers require the same attention to drainage to prevent mould.
Smaller kitchen appliances can be individually wrapped in plastic, placed in boxes or in their original boxes if you’ve still got them. Make sure to pack together any attachments the appliance comes with to avoid searching for it late.
