Iron Spice Rack
Really good but not quite perfect
There's a lot to like about this rack. It's solid and looks more expensive than it is. It's not deep, so it's easy to get what you want and doesn't take up much space on the counter. I have a perfectly flat granite countertop and it doesn't tip at all.
While the depth is great, the height and length are slightly off. In particular, the middle and bottom shelves are too short to comfortably hold taller spices, and it's not quite wide enough to house my wider jars efficiently.
I've attached a photo showing different brands of spices and holders for comparison purposes. Whole Foods spices only fit on top, McCormick Fancy Collection (with the black caps) fits on top and middle only, and standard McCormick & Trader Joe's fit on all three.
All in all, it's still the best spice rack I've found over the years. If there were an extra 1/2 inch height on the shelves and it was about 6 inches wider, it would be absolutely perfect.

Great option for spices in a small space!
This spice rack was perfect for our tiny kitchen (even though we have lots of spices!) It fits nicely against our backsplash on the counter, and displays the spices in gorgeous clear bottles. I would recommend the chrome bottle lids, because they feel sturdy and look super cute. I am working on labeling the bottles, but all in all, I love this spice rack! Staying organized and making it look pretty in the process - what could be better?

Great Spice Racks
I purchased these spice racks to free up space in my cabinets. I like that they fit standard spice jars. My only criticism is that they didn't come with their own hardware and the holes in the back are much too small to fit over the head of a screw.

Very happy with my new spice rack!
I purchased this so I could *stop* having to pour purchased spices into other bottles, just to have them all match, and fit them in a custom rack. This rack successfully holds spice bottles of several brands (whose jars aren't quite the same size as each other), including Penzey's, Simply Organic, Frontier, McCormick (standard jars; the oversized jars are a little too wide to sit in the channels, and too tall for the bottom and middle shelves, but they fit on the top shelf), Spice Hunter, and more. I wish this spice rack came in other widths, I'd gladly buy a narrower one to stash on the other side of the stove, too!
