Here’s How To Pack Your Dishes

The kitchen is infamous for being a tough room to pack for a transfer. Not only are there delicate things to consider, but unlike hotel rooms, most people use their kitchens regularly.

What’s the only way to deal with this fast-moving juggernaut with a well-thought-out strategy, expert knowledge, and lots of packaging material? Here’s how to pack the most difficult things in the space like a pro.


Dishwasher-safe boxes are available at several moving hardware shops. These are ideal, but they are still more costly. A simple box can fit as long as you’re patient and pad generously.

First, put your dish in the center of a piece of packaging paper and protect it by pulling the paper’s corners over the pan. Make three more plates of the same size and repeat the procedure.

Stack the four plates together, position them upside down on another sheet of packaging paper, and rewrap the package with tape.

Put the package in a tiny bowl, vertically stacking the dishes on a thick sheet of packaging paper. (Dishes that are packed flat are more prone to break.) Attach more packets before the package is fully sealed. More wrapping paper can be stuffed onto the top, and all four sides then taped shut. “Fragile, This Side Up,” write on the shelves.

Use the same method to make similar-sized bowls.

Stemware, glasses, and cups

Fill cups and glasses with wadded-up wrapping paper first.

Wrap stems and handles in paper, crumpling gently to provide padding, and then individually wrap each section in the form.

Pack cups, bottles, and stemware upright in a box packed with wrapping tape, cushioning them well with crumpled paper rather than setting them flat. If your package includes glassware of uniform scale, gently stack it, filling the space with crumpled packaging paper. “Fragile, This Side Up,” write on the shelves.

Consider double-boxing for very delicate stemware. Once you’ve packed the package, please put it in a giant box that’s been padded on all sides with packaging tape. (It’s also a good idea to use this method when shipping delicate items.)

Most Kitchen Appliances

Cover the handles of significant items, such as pitchers, best way to pack dishes for moving before covering them separately.

Wrap rolled-up paper around the handle of the teapot, and then wrap more paper around the dish. Make sure to place the teapot upside down in the bottom corner of a stack of packaging paper, fold a few sheets over it, and tape it together. Wrap the teapot’s lid separately from the pot and place them in the exact same box.

Cover each knife in paper before placing it in bubble wrap. (Alternatively, put them in knife-specific safety sleeves.) When unpacking, mark the bundles, so you don’t forget about the rough edges.

Stack pots and pans in nesting classes of varying sizes. Cover a wide pan with two or three sheets of packaging paper, then place a smaller pan and line it with more packing paper. Place a smaller pan on top of that, and so on. Wrap at least three additional sheets of wrapping paper across the nested pans. Before putting the package in a box lined with wrapping paper, secure it with a tape piece. You can get more idea from
