Wire Spice Racks
Great for the price!
I originally bought 4 of these for the inside of my pantry doors, but liked them so much that I bought 4 more. Standard spice bottles fit nicely. You can fit 5 to 7 on a shelf, depending on the size. Short spice bottles, such as those sold by Penzey, are nicely kept in place by the front rails and the slightly raised front of each shelf. I have mine mounted on hollow core doors, and I highly recommend Toggler TA plastic toggles for this purpose. We tried a metal toggle first, and it was useless, but these plastic toggles (must be TA size) are great.
Each shelf unit has 6 indents for screws, but we only used the top 2 fastening spots on each of ours, and with the toggles and the addition of washers to make the screw head larger, the units are totally stable. We also bent the units slightly, so the concavity helps hold the unit to the wall.
The only negative I can think of is that oversize spice bottles and cans don't fit. It would be nice if the bottom shelf of each unit was an inch taller and deeper.

great spice rack!
This spice rack is exactly what I had in mind. I have a ton of spices (every time I find a new spice I buy it!)...now they're neatly organized on the back of my pantry door. The spice racks were easy to install - it took about 15 minutes for me to hang both (I bought 2). My pantry door is one of the hollow wood doors, and the spice racks installed easily without the screws poking through the other side. They feel stable, too.

Great extra storage
Works great and makes all my spice jars easily visible inside the cabinet. Mounts easily with the screws provided.

Wire Spice Rack
I initially purchased two of these to hang on the inside of my pantry door, but I love them so much that I just ordered two more! They hang just fine on my hollow door, though I had to drill a small hole first so that the screws would grip into the "wood" without ripping it up. But these racks are great for so much more than just spices and I love the extra pantry space!
