Oven bottom storage drawer?

How do you use your storage drawer? It always seemed very awkward to me to store anything down there.

  1. pot lids and the spatter guard. That's it- the lids are close by when I need them, and tucked away when I don't.

    1. I store lots and lots of baking/cookie sheets. The drawer under my oven is very roomy and I can store them flat.

      1. Mainly metal things such as cookie sheets, muffin pans, pie pans, etc. Oh, and a rather large ladle that doesn't seem to fit anywhere else.

          Yup. I have a small kitchen and with out my oven drawer I would have not comfortable way of storing my cookie sheets and cooling racks.

          (and maybe I can get that damn ladle of the wall! Brilliant)

        2. If you have a convection oven, then store the extra racks there.

          1. Mine stores the baking stone and the broiler pan, unless I actually remember that it's really a warming drawer. Then I may turn it on and use it.
