Use a Small Countertop Turntable as a Rack
When looking for a rack to hold filled spice bottles, use a small one or two-tiered turntable. Place the most commonly used jars around the outer edges, and use the top center tier to hold a larger container of dehydrated onions or another herb or spice used most often.
With a turn of the rack, specific varieties will be easy to find on the countertop, and the spices will be fresh and exactly what you want and use the most.
