As people prepare to cook, the user's most used cooking utensils would be hanging by magnets from the utensil stand. Within reaching distance, the user could easily grab the needed utensils off. When not in use, users could either rehang the utensils off the stand or rest them within the accompanying plate that rests on the stand. Either resting position would allow them to drip directly into the plate. Due to the stand being created out of Polycarbonate, user could see through the stand at any angle allowing easier use.
