Pull-Out Lid Organizer
Terrible - not worth even the low price
This item is so poorly made it is useless. It broke before we could get it installed.

My first visit into The Container Store was so much fun! I came away with the Lid Organizer and an over-the-door shoe storage bag. Great buys and this lid organizer saves me from all the frustration of pan lids stashed randomly in spaces between my pans. Love it! It's one of those little conveniences that make life less stressful!

Pull out lid organizer
This is a good idea and wish it had worked for me. Unfortunately I had to return the item due to the fact that the sections did not accommodate my lids. If the sections were wider or adjustable I would have kept it, but my lids made the side bulge out.

easy and effective
This is a 2 screw install! So easy and very effective. no more lids falling all over the place.

Works like a charm
Tired of digging through stacks of lids, I was intrigued when I happened on this item. The unit is simple to install, requiring the drilling of two screws to hold the base part to the baseboard. The sliding part simply snaps on to the rail. The material could be of greater quality, but it works just fine. It's used to hold six lids of various sizes (see picture). In fact, I've purchased a second one to hold the remaining lids I have.
NOTE: If you plan to purchase this item, be sure to measure the depth of the cabinet you plan to install it. You'll need at least 21 1/2 inches.

Cheap, but does the job
I was kind of disappointed when I received it in the mail. The quality of the product looks really cheap. But since I'm hiding it in the bottom of my kitchen cabinet I decided not to return it. It does the job and holds 5 of the lids. Don't push the drawer all to way in tho cuz it will get stuck.

I actually installed this below my cooktop, and installation was pretty easy, but it is hard to pull out. I hate to, but will probably have to have hubby take a look at it, but I love it even tho' it is hard to pull out, cuz at least the lids are not falling over everytime I get something out of the cabinet!

1) This is the flimsiest storage device ever. When full of lids, you don't dare pull it out very far or the drawer twists. Got a crack in the box part the very first day.
2) The plastic drawer is on a plastic frame - and doesn't slide smoothly when empty; when filled with lids, it's nearly unmovable without exerting great force.
Since it didn't work well for pan lids, I thought I'd try it as a sliding spice rack, unfortunately, the compartments are too narrow for standard-sized spice bottles, though it worked fine for anything in snack bags...
I'll be adding this to the pile of stuff going into my garage sale next month; it's pretty much useless.
Spend the extra money and get something with rollers or you'll be disappointed like I was.

Easy to install, All my lids are in one place where I can find them

this thing is functional, and for that it deserves its stars. however, it IS made of rather cheap white plastic, and because of that it doesn't leave a good impression. but, it works, it's cheap, and it beats leaving your lids everywhere.

not a satisfying feel but works well so far
Like the other reviewers, I find that the brittle, plasticky feel of this organizer leaves something to be desired. But it does the job without costing as much as a heavy chrome organizer, and fits into a narrow space. My lids are glass with metal edges and handles that stick out some distance, and these are a tight fit, but it still works. Very simple installation.

This is a perfect solution to organize lids & is super convenient since it slides out. The material looks a little cheap but appears to hold up well.

Useful Design, But Cheap Construction
I bought two of these for pot lid organization. The first one was fine, but the second one had two of the tabs broken off in the box. I installed both of them and they work okay. The plastic is thin and cheap and if you roll them out of the cabinet, the weight will pitch them forward and snap the whole thing or at least bring everything crashing to the floor. I've been using for a few months. I am dubious about whether or not they will last.

This lid organizer is a complete piece of junk. Do not buy this for any reason. The shipping would cost me more than the refund to return it. So disappointing. I would rate this zero stars if I could!

Already recommended it to others! I was so excited when it came and I am planning to order another one.

Just what I needed
It's a little flimsy looking, so I'll see if it holds up. But it's exactly what I needed to organize my potlids ... it even divides my cabinet so I can keep cutting boards and baking sheets on either side.

It's transformed our cupboards
This organizer is very easy to use and install - it slides in and out easily, and it fits nicely in the cupboard. I use it to store about 5 of my pot lids of various sizes, and it keeps them secure and out of the way. Thank goodness I no longer have to hear a thunderclap of falling pans and lids every time I open my cupboards!

Lid Organizer Won;t Hold Lids
Too narrow so there is no room for the handles of the lids,
Maybe there is a better lid organizer out there than LidMaid

Pull Out Lid Organizer
This has been a great purchase. I needed something to organize my lids. The Corningware lids fit perfectly. It stores about 6 of the smaller (qt. size) lids or some of the larger ones (2 qt., etc.)
