A drawer with plastic flatware container.  Another drawer with similar container, father away from cooking area, for less used things like meat injectors, large and small meat skewers, rubber bands and cooking string, tiny light bulbs (flash lights and more)  honey dipper, MY screwdriver (different ends in handle) MUST be put back, unlike his!  Odd screws and such.
