Best Spice Rack/Storage (including jars)

silverlakelisa | Feb 5, 200702:20 PM     22

I cook many different kinds of food, and as a result I probably have at least 30-50 spices. I have a small apartment kitchen and I don't have room to put my spices away in a cupboard, so right now I have a small shelf that I use, but now it's a mess and overflowing, and I'm frankly sick of the disorganization.

I need some kind of attractive storage system (a rack, circular spinning tower, etc) that I can display on my counter. It needs to have minimum 20 spice jars, but I'd prefer more like 40 (I'll buy more than one if necessary). I've looked on the websites for Sur La Table, Williams-Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Amazon.com, Cooking.com, Surfas, etc., and haven't found just the right one.

I want to make sure the jars are airtight and good quality, and I don't mind investing a fair amount of money. Other than that, I just want it to be attractive and well organized. I prefer that they don't come with spices, since I already have spices and I'd just end up throwing them out.

What does everyone else out there use?

Thanks for any advice!
