Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Efficient Use of Space I was inspired by a de-clutter magazine, and well, my husband LOVES tea and purchases new kinds every chance he gets. I gave him his own nook, and this rack provided a very thoughtful way to reach all his tea accessories in one place. The possibilities are endless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I love using these! I've bought a few and keep going back for more. The only thing to keep in mind is if there is a shelf under the one you are using this on, how high the items on that shelf will be in case this product blocks that. Otherwise, I love adding these on to my shelves and taking advantage of an easy way to maximize my space.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work with wire shelving These baskets are very sturdy and well made. However, they do not work well with wire pantry shelving. The baskets tip backwards and are not stable. The example is shown on a wooden shelf and I think it would probably be fine on a wooden shelf. I would not recommend these for wire shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making Room I bought a house with a very small pantry. When I started to put my food and canned goods in the shelves, I realized there just wasn't going to be enough space. These Undershelf Baskets are lifesavers! It's made a big difference in what I can put in a tiny space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be aware of the sizes I purchased this item, after being a loyal customer here for a while. The Container Store has been more than helpful to me many times over. However, the specifications for this item are misleading. I purchased the medium size basket, after measuring the space where I needed to install it. It was critical for me to use the measurements that were shown (I planned to use the basket to hold my DVR). When I received it, I found that the interior dimensions (width especially) are off by as much as 1.5 inches, and my DVR didn't fit. For example, the width across the basket states on the site, 16" wide. It's a 14.5" interior. (see photo) The 16" is due to the bend of the arms that hold the basket (they bow out at one point) and their thickness. The dimensions were critical because I needed the basket in a specific place under my shelf that wouldn't have room for anything wider. I would like for TCS to provide inside dimensions along with the outside ones so this doesn't happen to someone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Space - You Bet I love this undershelf basket. I only have 3 drawers in the kitchen (obviously not designed by a woman) and things that I don't want cluttering my counter tops or have to store away from the kitchen. These shelves made it possible to have everything I needed within reach. The product itself is a lot nicer than I had expected and is well structured. I highly recommend the undershelf baskets if you need just a bit more storage options without putting out a lot of extra cash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The possibilities are endless! These under shelf baskets are one of the best organizational tools ever! The possibilities are endless. I used these under shelf baskets in the lunchroom at my work place, which has very limited storage/countertop areas. And it's used by well over 80 employees. Something just had to be done to make it more user-friendly. So I used two baskets underneath the microwave for cups, coffee pods and tea. The baskets are under shelf, but on the OUTSIDE of the cabinet, not on the interior like most use it for. And I reverse stacked them by first using a 20" basket directly under the shelf for the microwave. Then hung a 16" basket directly underneath the 20" by threading the "arms" of the smaller basket through the wire basket of the larger basket...basically threading the smaller basket through the larger one, so they are attached. (It's easier to see what I mean by checking out the pic!). *I would only do this with lightweight items such as pods and teas...not meant for heavy things. It's nice to now have all our coffee and teas together in one place, easy to reach, and right next to our Keurig. I have received many positive compliments on this little helper. However, I think the person who is most happy is our custodian, Alex. He likes that he doesn't have to move the basket of pods and teas, and a tray of mugs from the countertop in order to clean underneath (and then put it all back). Another plus is that we can now easily see if we're low on supplies. I would highly recommend these under shelf baskets. A small thing with a nice, big, positive impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Cool Is THAT! I needed a place to put my baggies, you know, snack sized, freezer, sandwich, etc. I kept losing them behind my dryer. I picked up this undershelf basket and low and behold, they don't slide out! It has a back-stop that keeps them from slipping out the end. They are handy, now, I can see where the right sized bag is and I have another basket for the wax paper, cling wrap, and tin foil. Nice and neat!
Date published: 2014-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea! Whoever thought this up is an organizing genius! I use this in my pantry for my sandwich baggies because I have several sizes. I initially thought I was going to put bread in there so it wouldn't get smoothed. I may have to buy a few more of these. Im thinking laundry room and linen closet. This shelf is sturdy and well built. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No issues-wonderful product Another wonderful space saving product. My linen closet shelves are spaced very far apart so I used these to maximize the space and they work great. No issues. Make sure you are not trying to put them in a closet that has a rod in front of the shelf because you will not be able to get them in place if something is blocking the front of the shelf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I wanted a better way to stack coffee mugs in my cupboard. This let me add an extra row without adding an extra shelf or stacking cups on other cups which seemed broken cups waiting to happen. It is sturdy and can be filled with ceremic coffee mugs with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space saver! These things are great for saving space, I put it in my linen closet to hold my rags. I love it and will probably get a couple more for others things! My only complaint is that it isn't deep enough. I can only hold one row of rags in there. I can put a second row but they would be hanging half off. I could probably try rolling them, and may be able to fit more that way. Right now I think I may have about 8 of my rags in there.

Will the undershelf work with the standard wire shelfing commonly in pantry and linen closests.

Asked by: psully
To be on the safe side, I would use the medium Medium Undershelf Basket White 16" x 10-1/8" x 5-1/2" h 824060 You might have a gap on one end but it would be easier to get out.
