Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have purchased a long time ago These baskets are wonderful! I have used them in my pantry, laundry room and linen closet. Terrific for small spaces to make the most of your space! Highly recommend

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returning I'm not sure if I received a different product than everyone else raving about these, but they are not sturdy at all. As soon as I put a group of small mugs on this it hung down onto the dishes below it. I was really hoping for something that would at least stay level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's Not To Love This shelf does it's job. It gives me the extra space to store all of my things in an organized manner, so that things aren't stuffed in my closet and looking cluttered. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed additional cabinet storage After moving into our new home we realized that there was a lot of wasted space with our nonfunctional cabinet shelves. We turned to the Container Store website for help, as we have done several times with this new home. Found these, ordered online with store pick up. Get the undershelf baskets home and so easy to use with cabinets organized and very well utilized! Love the look and how easy to get the end result desired!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for small spaces I have very little cabinet space, and what I do have, some of it is poorly designed. This came in handy to store a large pot and lid that I don't use every day, while still having room for my other pots/pans that I use more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Our kitchen has very few cabinets and this product is a great space maker. We purchased two of these, one small and one medium size and use the latter for storing glass tumblers/ measuring cups and the former for storing kitchen towels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Small Kitchens! I have a super tiny kitchen with very limited cabinet space. These Undershelf Baskets were a great way to double the amount of storage in each cabinet. I can store all my mugs in the basket plus all my glasses underneath. A great way to utilize space that would otherwise be wasted! I just wish they had some that were 3" in height (instead of 5") so I could store plates in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of extra storage space Strong, holds good amount of weight I used the shelves to increase storage in china cabinets and they held the weight of the smaller pieces very well - cups saucers, highball glasses etc. Will buy more when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen storage issue resolved I was having to stack my small tumblers and mugs to get everything to fit into the kitchen cabinets of my small apartment. These undershelf baskets are the perfect solution! The short tumblers and mugs fit into the baskets, and the tall glassware and taller mugs fit on the shelves underneath. I love these undershelf baskets!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Declutters my pantry I bought a size small and a medium, fit perfectly side-by-side in my 30" wide Elfa pantry. I use them to keep food container lids out of the way but still accessible, as well as Ziploc bags. I deducted 1 star since the bottom of the basket is narrower than the top. As a result, some valuable inches of storage space is lost for no particular reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I buy these years ago? I went to the Container Store and bought one. Came home and loved not having such a cluttered pantry. My husband likes them since items are not piled on top of items. After looking at other stores to no avail I went on line and bought 4 more in various lengths. Great for the pantry. I use mine to store canned goods, cookie sheets, and pie plates. It is so nice to be able to locate things easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy These were just the thing I needed to hang underneath the shelf in my laundry room. They nearly double the available storage space. My only complaint is they are not deeper to handle taller items. Other than that, they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver I purchased this for my coffee supplies above my coffee pot and I love it! I can even put my kcups in it too. I highly recommend it. I am going to go back and get a couple more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile product These baskets are great and have many uses - I used them in my clothes closet to store extra towels and washcloths. Great for freeing up shelf space in small areas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Additional Storage I have two of these in my pantry and one in my laundry room. I intend to buy a few more for the laundry room. These are great to fill in extra space that isn't being used. It leaves a tall enough space that I can put my bread in there and prevent it from getting smooshed. I generally put lighter things in them like rags, bread, chips, other small items that kind of get lost on the bigger shelves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the Office I recently purchased three of these for my office. I have a small space and these work great for getting things off my desk and freeing up work space. The small is just a tiny bit shorter than an 8.5x11 folder but not so much as to make the folders in danger of falling out. I can hang two of them in between the brackets anchoring the shelf. My boss even wants some now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polytherm Undershelf Baskets This item has given so much more space in my cabinets and also makes it easier to get things in and out without having items stored on top of each other. My husband open the cabinet and wanted to know whose kitchen he was in. It really has helped organize and even looks so much better. Thank you for the little things that make such a big difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great They fit perfectly under shelves, great place to store plastic lids.
Date published: 2013-11-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be better This is a fairly small shelf, but it works pretty well. You can't put much weight on it, it makes the whole shelf sag and push forward. I have about two bags of beans on it. We're going to put something on the back end to connect it so it doesn't do this anymore. With modification, it can work for you. As it is for ours, it keeps our cupboard door open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everywhere! I bought these for my daughter's closet, but I am using them in my pantry as well as under my kitchen cabinets to hold ripening fruit and veg. It gets it off the counter and adds some nice color. The finish is lovely and smooth.

Community Q&A

What size shelf will this basket fit on?

Can this basket be attached to a shelf that is 2" wide?
Asked by: Courtyard
I measured the max width at 1 inch, so the undershelf basket should fit onto any shelf that is up to 1 inch thick
Answered by: JenC1037

Weight limit

What is the maximum weight can these baskets hold? I plan to use these under my desk shelf. Can it carry a laptop?
Asked by: sincha
I would think that you may find this info online. The baskets are very sturdy. You may want to measure the depth of your laptop. The laptop may stick out a little in the front, but otherwise the basket should hold it nicely.

Do these work on wire pantry and closet shelves?

Asked by: Havses
I would not recommend as you would need a solid shelf for better stability. You don’t want the basket arms to fall threw
Answered by: ABQshopper

What are the inside dimensions of the baskets?

I'm trying to determine what size I would need to get for placing paper flat inside the baskets.
Asked by: gibs04
You can probably find the dimensions online for varying sizes. I save instruction manuals. I used to put them in a kitchen drawer. The shelf fits perfectly inside of my pantry for quick access to my regularly used manuals.

Could I put this on the bottom of my upper cabinet so items will be in reach without opening the cabinet door?

Asked by: LydiaW
Depends on thickness of your cabinet. Measure the thickness and check shelf dimension of the product.
Answered by: ABQshopper

Can the basket hangars be secured to the shelf with screws?

Asked by: KrzyK
No, I don't think so. There is no place on the basket where a screw would fit (Ie there is no pre-set hole for a screw). The hooks that go onto the shelf are only about 1/4 an inch thick. However, you do not need to screw them to a shelf, they are quite secure once you slide them into place
Answered by: JenC1037
Date published: 2018-07-16

Do the hanger arms have grips?

I am concerned about these potentially sliding off of a shelf when I pull something out of it, and everything in it come crashing to the floor.
Asked by: Jamieboy
No, but they are snug enough that the shelf doesn’t slip
Answered by: ABQshopper

How is the height measured?

What is the max height of this, top of shelf support to bottom of basket? And what is the height of the basket itself? Thanks.
Asked by: amaxsonw
The height clearance is 5-1/2" and the width is 12" across. We hope this information helps.
