Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 13, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these! Have had these under shelf baskets in the past and loved them. These are even nicer. They increase the space in my cupboards and make them much more organized. July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Undershelf Baskets Our container covers don't fall out anymore. I love it. I am having someone pick me up another one because I have room for it and the first one works well. May 4, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximizing cabinets/shelves I have these in various areas of my home & love that they expand my storage. April 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Practical storage Great to use unused cabinet space. I have a variety if sizes and love these baskets for travel coffee mugs, plastic lids, kids cups, etc. instantly makes things look more in place instead of in the way! April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great option Love this product! Using it to store bread so it doesn't get crushed in the pantry! April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase We were trying to expand a too-small pantry. This worked great. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product I love this shelf, fits perfectly for paper plates March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best space saver This is one of the best space savers. I use it for my paper plates. February 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 out of 5 by great for wine storage I use this for storing bottles of wine and champagne. The bottles can be stored in space that had been unused. February 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good purchase I love that it makes wasted space useful. It shakes every time we open the cabinet door, guess I'll get used to that. January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I used this in my hall linen closet to keep pillowcases together; slid it onto the shelf above the top sheets stacked neatly below. Just right. January 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 20, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good product but not big enough I bought 2 of the undershelf baskets for my new pantry. I wanted them to hold bread, buns, bagels, etc so they would not get squished on the shelves. I submitted a question asking what size I should order based on my needs and they suggested the large one. I was very disappointed when I received the items because they were not big enough, height-wise. Length-wise, they were adequate, but I would have to squish the bread to get them in there, which defeats its purpose, so I'm returning them. October 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted I ordered the undershelf baskets from The Container Store at a very reasonable price and received them very quickly. They were exactly what I wanted for my pantry. October 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Undershelf Basket I absolutely love this basket. I have them in my utility/laundry room, in my pantry, in my linen closet...they are everywhere. They are so useful to add additional storage under shelves where you can't stack items high enough to utilize all the storage space provided. They help me sort items that otherwise get lost and shoved to the back where I can't find them. I could use a deeper basket too for even more storage, but these baskets are fantastic. September 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect in the pantry!! These shelves work perfect in our pantry!!! We use one to hold bread items (keeps things from being stacked on top of the bread and squishing it!). Perfect size to keep something out of the way but still have usable shelf space below! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great use of a wasted space I've had one of these under-shelf baskets for years and just bought another one. The picture shows them holding a dishtowel, but they will hold much more weight than that. I use them for brown sugar bags, rice bags, potatoes and onions -- many things that you just don't want laying around on your shelves. July 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product!!!! I purchased 6 of the large size undershelf baskets, I love them!! I wasn't sure if I needed 6 of them but I found a use for all 6. Great product!!! July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more 'WASTED' space! You know, these baskets can also be used on the upper side of a shelf, with the clip arms on the underside of the shelf: they are strong enough to put the pots on top, with lids stored under....They are so great for sneaking in the last boxes of pasta or cereal in the pantry, separating your food from your roommate's, or, making sure everything that is gluten/salt/sugar/fat free is clearly in its own space...And I haven't even started on the closets yet! June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of my favorites from Container Store Purchased three of these for kitchen linens since our kitchen has limited storage space. Love them! April 30, 2013

Community Q&A

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.

For kitchen cabinets above the counter, can you put this on the bottom shelf and close the cabinet door over it?

Asked by: VeryOrganized
As long as there is enough clearance between the door and the shelf.

We have 1 1/2 inch thick shelves. Will this fit?

Looks like they may be designed for 1" thick shelves.
Asked by: BrianB
Unfortunately, these undershelf baskets are made for shelves 1" thick and would not work with 1.5" thick shelves.

What is the weight capacity of these shelves?

Asked by: Anonymous10000000
There is no specified weight capacity. However, the Undershelf Baskets are designed to hold linens, mugs and similar pantry or cabinet storage items.

Which of these shelves are long enough to hold aluminum foil and plastic wrap?

Asked by: BeachBumProfessor
One is long enough: Large Undershelf Basket White (item: 824070) However, the rolls of wrap would need to rest parallel to the shelf since the item is less than 11" front to back. The item's dimensions are 20"w x 10-1/4"d x 5-1/2" h. If you are wanting to store your rolls of wrap where you can look at the ends of the boxes rather than the sides, you might want to try the Undershelf Placemat Holder White (item: 344040). It is 12" front to back & might work the best. It is open on the sides though, so keep that in mind. Its dimensions are: 18-3/4"w x 12"d x 4" h.
