Pull-Out Lid Organizer
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.

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.

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!

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.
