How to Pack Pots and Pans with Ease
People don't usually enjoy the packing part of moving. It's even more tedious to pack kitchen stuff. However, you should not dread packing pots and pans. Just take it one step at a time and soon you'll get it done too.
For instance, the first step is always to prepare your packing materials. You should have sturdy boxes, packing tapes, biodegradable packing peanuts, packing papers or newsprints and markers. Before you put a single pan or pot inside the box, you have to make sure that the box will hold them well. You have to reinforce boxes by taping its seams. You also have to tape and seal the bottom of the boxes so it will not easily tear and open once the pots and pans are loaded.
Once the box is taped well, you have to provide a cushion at the bottom. You can do this by putting loosely crumpled paper. You should also add some biodegradable packing peanuts to form about an inch or two of cushion for the pans and pots.
The trick is to put the pots and pans by groups of three. You simply have to wrap the largest pot with wrapping paper and tape the edges of the paper inside the pot. Then do the same to the second largest and put it in with the other pot. Add one more pot following the same process. It's important that you put the lids of the pots in the same box so finding matching pots and lids would be easier later on.
