What is the best way to pack kitchen gadgets when moving home?

Hi,

I’ll be moving apartments in a couple of weeks and I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to pack those awkward kitchen gadgets? I’m particularly anxious about my blender and food processor, as they have a lot of attachments with them, and I am worried they may break. I’m also concerned about a ‘V’ slice I have, as it has a lot of sharp blades and edges.

Thanks in advance,

Ryleigh.

  • I heart beets:

    wrap them in many sheets of newspaper.

  • smokey:

    call professional movers to see if they can give you any ideas. or a GOOD quote.

    Packing the kitchen is one of those things you really hate to do, simply because there are so many small items and items you’re never quite sure you should pack or not.

    For a family-sized kitchen, you’ll need the following:

    * 5 Large Boxes (18 x 18 x 24): For lightweight and hard to pack items such as plastic kitchenware, dish racks, small appliances, baking tins.
    * 10 Medium Boxes (18 x 18 x 16): For heavier items such as small appliances, pantry items, pots and pans, silverware, contents of drawers, cookbooks.
    * 5 Heavy Duty Boxes (18 x 18 x 28): These have thick, double-walls, perfect for packing fragiles, such as plates, glasses, stemware, wine and canisters.
    * Unprinted Newswrap: To pack fragiles, including food items, small appliances. Purchase a 4-5 lbs bundle.
    * Bubblewrap: Purchase a 36 ft roll or if it saves money, purchase additional amounts. You’ll need it to pack other rooms.
    * 5-10 Cell Kits (18 x 18): Cell kits are extremely useful for packing glasses, stemware, wine and liquor bottles. I’ve also used them to pack figurines, vases and canisters. Check the sizes of your cell kits to ensure they’ll fit into the boxes you have.
    * 5 Packing/Sealing Tape: Purchase in bulk as you’ll need it for packing all your rooms.
    * Marker, labels: Again purchase enough so you can pack your entire house.
