Rated 4 out of 5 by from Utensils tray. This is an excellent kitchen utensils tray for large, long tools. Not so good for small utensils, which tend to go astray under everything else. I had to get a silverware tray for smaller utensils.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok but not stable This item is adjustable, but it never really sticks together. The ridges which are supposed to hold the adjusted box together don't really hold together very well. I ended up taking them together. It works I guess but it's kind of hokey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Kitchen Utensil Organizer I am a huge fan of drawer organizers and have found this to be the best one for my kitchen drawers. They hold a lot of large utensils and also fill up large drawers really well without having to jimmy rig something to it will stay in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drawer organizer extraordinaire ! Purchased the expandable drawer organizer for my miscellaneous kitchen tools. Previously they were just tossed in a drawer. Finding what I needed always took time and was just plain aggravating. This has made the drawer neat, tools easily accessible, and such a time saver. Would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We just remodeled our kitchen and the drawers are large. An average organizing tray just wouldn't work. I was glad to find this one, and once placed in the drawer it works great. My cooking utensils are organized and not sliding around in the drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes sense and works I bought this for its versatility. Originally intended for a narrow drawer (and this tray did fit nicely) I decided to use itfor a more wide drawer where this tray, expanded, was more beneficial for the mish mash in that drawer. This tray's been in use for about a week and is working out fine so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I bought a couple of these to replace the original utensil holders that came with our new house. I was having a hard time finding an organizer that would use the whole space inside the drawer and then I found these. Perfect fit and I didn't have to special order one or find one and cut it to fit the drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best In-Drawer Organizational Sytem EVER!!!! I bought this in-drawer organizer because we refinished the custom drawers in our kitchen and they are wider than standard drawers. This system is like magic, it adjusts to fit, has plenty of org space and makes finding my kitchen tools a snap. How I ever lived without one, I have no idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart product This drawer organizer was the perfect solution to my messy overflowing utensil drawer. I can now not only see everything I have and access it quickly, I can fit even more in the drawer! I love that it requires zero assembly and that it expands to the width of virtually any size drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expand a Drawer I just purchased 2 expand a drawers as I wanted to organize my kitchen. My cabinets were built in 1965 so I was so amazed the container store had items that exactly fit as i have not been able to find anything before. I love my drawers and it is so much easier to locate items when I am cooking. I would highly recommend this store to anyone wanting to organize any room. The employees are so helpful and have great items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This was the answer to my disorganized drawer of utensils. At the right width, I was only able expand one of the two extensions to fill the length off my drawer. Nontheless, I was able to fit all utensils and have been organized since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution! I was frustrated with not being able to find a spatula, scraper or pizza cutter to save my life, despite the fact I own multiples of each. This utensil organizer was the perfect solution! It is long enough to house my multiple sizes of utensils, and deep enough to stack items. And the expanding size allowed it to fit perfectly into my drawer, while allowing me to choose if I wanted one additional large bin, or two smaller ones. Great product at a great price. Next up....the junk drawer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! The drawer is perfect and very versatile. Whatever size your drawer is you can adjust it to fit your needs. It's lightweight and a no-brainer to assemble. I will buy more like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't lock Great for the price- the down side is that this does not lock in place after it is expanded like the Bamboo would. Go for the bamboo ones if you can afford it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very easy to use and fits in many different drawers (standard length). Easy to clean as well. All looks now very well organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work for me I have a wide kitchen drawer which I use to store utensils. Prior to buying this expandable tray, I used two plastic expandable drawer separators in addition to a plastic container to help store smaller items. I realized I needed something more stable as the plastic expandable drawer separators would not always stay in place and that I needed to further divide my utensils. This expandable tray seems to help as I have five sections to help organize (because I am using the entire tray). There were two lesser-used items that I couldn't fit in the tray and have put them somewhere else

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as good as it could / should have been I bought both this and the expandable cutlery tray. I have to say I am surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reviews. I thought, when I was buying this, that it would be one expandable piece. Instead it's three separate pieces that do not in any way attach to each other. (You become aware of that fact the moment you open the packaging and the contents comes all flying apart.) The middle part of the organizer, that has little grooves on the bottom, simply lies on top of the two extra sides. Those grooves are not sufficient for everything to stay in place! Every single time you open the drawer, the entire structure slides a bit. I am really disappointed - I expected some actual engineering thought behind this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I love this product. It expands to the exact size of the large drawer in my kitchen. I use it for all of my spatulas, wooden spoons, etc. You need this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Organization I have two very wide drawers. I combined several of the expandable drawer organzers (utility, cutlery, etc.) to create different sized compartments to hold all the kitchen gadgets. Instant, Neat solution at the fraction of the price and time configuring and buying various sized drawer organizers. I'm proud to open my drawers, when guests help me in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Organizer This organizer is made from thick-walled white plastic. It holds up well. The partitions are wide enough to hold pizza cutters, measuring cups, and all sorts of oddly-shaped kitchen gadgets.
