Mise en place: The French term for "everything in its place" when referring to kitchen preparation. If this were in a restaurant kitchen, the bins would be full of chopped tomatoes, onions, herbs, etc. But for a home kitchen, fresh food sitting out won't get used the way it would in a restaurant. This kitchen utilizes actual pans from a restaurant supply store, dropped into cutouts in the countertop. Rather than fresh food, they're used to hold salt, pepper, and utensils.
Get this look: The counters shown are 5" deeper than standard (30" vs. 25") so the bins don't interfere with the closing of the drawers. The cabinets have been pulled off the wall to create room for the bins.
