Expand-a-Drawer Spice Organizer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So awesome In our old place we had a built-in spice cabinet next to the refrigerator. We overstuffed it, but we were used to it and in our new home I was dismayed that there was no similar cabinet. We have A LOT of spices. And then I noticed these big flat drawers... I guessed they were made for spices but I wondered if I would have to get all new short fat containers to fit. And then I found out about these expand-a-drawer organizers. They are perfect! They keep all my spices organized and visible. I much prefer this arrangement to our old spice cabinet. So happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the little things... It's the little things that make big differences. And the Expanda-a-Drawer Spice Organizer made a huge difference for me. Instead of having to sort through a cabinet for the right spice when I cook I can just open the drawer and see everything all lined up alphabetically and get what I need quickly. And putting them back is just as easy. So the organizer is not a big item but has made life easier for me. I love to cook and try new recipes so having ingredients just a drawer away is most helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect drawer spice rack I have been looking for an in drawer spice rack and this is perfect. I can see everything and it is easy to grab while cooking. The extra sides are perfect for the smaller sized items I have. This is so great that I wish I had more drawers to use for this spice rack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spice organizer This is my second expand-a-drawer organizer. Love them! They really help to keep spices organized in drawers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Holds lots of spices conveniently! I am really happy that I was able to find a drawer organizer for my spices that held so much! Now I can use up the duplicates that I had as a result of my previous "system" because I can easily see exactly what I have. The "expandable" sides don't lock in like I thought they would, but otherwise I am very happy with this system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice for drawer next to stove Great little organizer for the spices, put it in the drawer next to the stove for quick access while cooking. Held about 18 standard size spice bottles and 6 mini spice bottles. Much better than just shoving spices into the drawer and didn't have anywhere for a hanging rack so I'm happy with this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I ended up returning this. It sort of takes up too much room in a drawer for relatively few things that can go in it. So overall I decided it wasn't for me. Quality was a little on the cheapy-feel side, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Spice Organizer Needed a way to organize and store a medicine cabinet now located in bathroom drawer. The Spice Organizer was the perfect solution. Everything stays in place and is easy to see. And, of course, it fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution We've just retired and moved from our big house into our much smaller summer cottage so I had duplicates of spices and needed a good organizing tool in a small kitchen, which has several shallow drawers that are otherwise not very useful (do measure!). GREAT solution, holds tall and 2 stacked short bottles, large tins, giant bottles around the edges. Excellent tool in sturdy plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drawer spice rack I love this in drawer spice rack. It holds most sizes and shapes of average size cans or jars. I put my spices in the drawer in alphabetical order so they are easy to find when cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been looking for months for an organizer that will fit in a kitchen drawer! This is the perfect fit, is easy to organize and I can use my existing spice bottles. Super!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!!! My mother recently changed her spice storage from traditional upright in cabinet to drawer storage for ease of access and I thought it was very logical. Unfortunately she did not have an organizer in place to keep the spices in their place and hers were just rolling to and fro in drawer. And alas, I found the expand a drawer spice organizer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for an inexpensive solution This works very well for what it's intended to do. We purchased 2 for a large drawer and they fit well without too much shifting around, although we may put a barrier behind them so they don't move back and forth when we open the drawer. Spice containers are clearly displayed, making finding a spice a breeze. Perhaps a deluxe version could have rubber feet under the rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organized at last We used to have our spices all over the place in no real order and they were hard to find. We bought this organizer and things are much better now. All of our jars are alphabetized, easy to see, and easy to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This rack holds all of my spices, even larger bottles on the side. I call it my little "spice stadium!" Everything is accessible and easy to find, and so so much better than the cluttered cabinet that they used to be in. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great purchase This is a great product. Keep in mind the larger spices need to go on the expanded sides. Middle can only fit smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great spice storage solution I purchased this product after we remodeled our kitchen and I lost my spice cabinet that was previously located next to my oven. At first I panicked, but then after doing a little research I found this and the many positive reviews convinced me to give it a try. I absolutely love it, all my spices are easy to see and very accessable. I did have to downsize my collection a little since the drawer I was using was not as big, but I just put the less commonly used spices in a bin in my pantry. If you had a larger drawer this wouldn't be a problem since the organizer expands to fit larger sizes. Overall, a great solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product I have been waiting for I just recently purchased a home and was very excited to finally be able to have the space to organize my spices. I have been living in apartments for several years and never had room to properly organize my spices so they were always in a cabinet where I could never find them when I needed them or stuck in a box. I wanted to find something that I could keep them hidden but still be able to find them easily. The Expand-A-Drawer is exactly what I was looking for. I have the perfect drawer and this product fits really well and I can actually see every single spice and get to it when I need it. Finally!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spice organizer + Elfa = Perfection! I created my own rolling "butcher block" using the Elfa medium platinum 7-drawer set. 2 of the "one" drawers, a "two", and a "three" make a perfect baking center. The 2 shallow drawers have these spice organizers, making for easy organization, baking, and cooking. I can roll the unit out by the stove and have everything easily at hand, then roll it back away. In my former house, we left out a base cabinet when we remodeled to have an under-counter spot to park the rolling cart, but in my current home, I just keep it at the end of the counter. Beautiful, functional and saves me a ton high dollar kitchen real estate by organizing the spices sensibly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not quite what I thought Make sure your the size of your draw is a little larger then the 18 inches. Mine was really hard to fit into the draw and then to expand. I was able to make it work. I am happy with it, but I would let every one know the draw has to be a little larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Drawer I almost paid for an expensive custom-made spice rack for my kitchen drawer. I decided against it and so happy I did ... this one was reasonably priced and fits perfectly in the drawer. Spices are so easy to find. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Spice of Life! This product has turned my kitchen around. I recently remodeled my kitchen and having a new island constructed and all I really wanted was one big drawer for my spices. This product has been a godsend for me. No more hunting and shuffling, and best of all no duplicate purchases at the grocery store. At the touch of your fingertips to the stovetop is the greatest convenience of all. Thank you Container Store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! Had such a hard time finding a spice rack that would fit in a rather shallow drawer. I now have 2 of them side by side, holding lots of spices. Saves me space in my pantry. And the price is so reasonable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spice Organizer This one fits perfectly in the length of my kitchen drawer and the organizer is designed to expand sideways accordingly, so no wasted space. Makes the spices more readily visible to avoid duplication. Multiple size bottles fit well and if your bottle of vanilla is a little tall you can re-arrange it with something smaller above that to compensate. Highly recommend this product.

Are these organizers stackable? I have a deep drawer that holds my spices upright currently.

Our Expand-a-Drawer Spice Organizers do not stack; they are designed to be used in a single layer.
