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.

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!

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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

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.

If the basket is hung on a 1" thick shelf, how much height is there to store things in the basket?

Does the 5.5" height include the shelf hooks?
Asked by: kaytro413
The height quoted for our Undershelf Baskets is for the overall height of the Baskets. The usable interior height once the Basket is in place on a 1" thick shelf will be about 4-1/2".

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.
