Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Creator I must have at least 6-8 of these great little shelves already, and just bought two more. Have been reconfiguring my kitchen cabinets, weeding out things I never use, cleaning etc. With the addition of these two shelves I'll be able to get nearly all my glassware and dinnerware stored on one shelf, and I have service for 12. !!! The shelves are strong, well-made and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. I purchased 4 of the large shelves and they are perfect for a second row of coffee cups, bowls, plastic containers etc. They are strong and I have installed them but still plan to move things around only because I have so much room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will buy more We have very tall cabinets in our kitchen, and I was looking for a solution to maximize the space between shelves. I purchased one of these to see if this would work for us. I'm happy to report that it fits just perfectly; it divides the space while still allowing plenty of room above and below. I was surprised how sturdy this little shelf feels; the material used is a rather heavy gauge. I plan to purchase more to finish organizing our kitchen and pantry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great - SO much more space in my cabinets I put this in my cabinet to conserve space. We have a LOT of mugs, and space was limited. I put them over the mugs - now I have 2 levels of mugs and there is harmony in the cup shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, cute and totally necessary I know typically in NY kitchen space is limited. So unfortunately we have to stack different size plates on top of eachother. I think this is so nifty and smart. It allows me to easily access the size dish that I need without having to lift a set up and pull it from the bottom. This is really handy while cooking and your hands aren't the cleanest so you can easily get your plate without making others dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pantry Saver! I bought several Cabinet Shelves to make better use of my spacious but unorganized pantry. These were such a help to create the organization I had been looking for. Now we can store double the items on the shelves as the Cabinet Shelves effectively create another shelf. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More shelving space Cabinet shelves are perfect for NYC apartments, where space is limited and you need to make most of it. Specially for the kitchen! These shelves are great for creating more room in my very small kitchenette were cabinet space is priceless! Definitely recommend for those that like to make most of space. I use it not only for plates, but also for the food cabinet to divide snacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Creative Studio I am using the large shelf in between my two art tables and it's wonderful to maximize the space. I have the small plastic containers above and below to hold all my spray inks and dyes.

Date published: 2014-03-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for small kitchen In NYC you don't have a ton of cabinet space but these fit well in my cabinets, not too wide or too high, and are very sturdy. One thing tho, large dinner plates won't fit below it, so if you want one for those you need to get a larger size shelf or the adjustable shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unconventional uses I have a collection of coffee mugs from all over the world. I have cut down 2 of these shelves to store small mugs on bottom and large mugs on top. I have 2 more on desk tops (2 homes). I have small TVs on them with space under for pencil sharpener, stapler, etc. Very sturdy, works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I was going to get the expanding shelf but it was much larger than I needed it to be. I use this as a sort of "makeshift" entertainment center. I need a shelf to put my playstation under and my record player and mail file on top of. This is the perfect size for that. I just wish it came in black or red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cabinet organizer shelf Just what I wanted for a second layer of glasses, sized to fit standard cabinet space. However, did not allow for hinge dimension, so I had to bend one front leg. Easily done because I'm handy, etc. Regardless, it's just what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from doubles the cabinet space! These wire shelves are exactly what we needed to capitalize on all of the unused higher vertical space in our cabinets. They are sturdy and do not sag in the middle or wobble. We use them to divide our dinnerware and food items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Because of limited shelf space in my kitchen cupboard, I store my plates in a tall stack making it difficult to remove and replace the dishes. I bought these racks to separate the stacks of plates. The larger size separates the dinner plates on the bottom from luncheon sized on the top. The smaller size separates dessert plates on the bottom from the soup bowls on top. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cabinet Organization I bought the medium shelves to help organize and expand the space in an upper cabinet. We've completed a DIY kitchen renovation, and I gave up an upper cabinet for a microwave shelf. My remaining large upper cabinet now has to do double duty, and these shelf have helped tremendously. They are very sturdy and the wire is spaced just right to put dishes and mugs on. Be sure to measure your space. I was able to use two in my cabinet. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat & Easy I love these cabinet shelves. I put my plates on the bottom and bowls on the top shelf. Everything looks so neat. And it's easy to get items. It eliminates dead space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medium Shelf- I got this to keep our DVR up off of the shelf in our entertainment console. Not only does it help air circulate under it, so it doesn't get so hot, it also raised it so the remote would still work with the glass doors closed. AND it created room for all those cords and plugs to fit underneath the shelf so no one has to look at a tangled mess between the console and the wall. My husband thought I was brilliant for finding this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great additional space Give great additional space for different sized dishes in the same cabinets. Have these in most of my upper cabinets. Great buy and they don't need replacing. Make sure you know all the demotions of your cabinets before buying. Also helps to know the size and placement of your dishes so you can make the most out of using these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful everywhere! I bought these to add levels to an open cabinet I found in an antique store, then discovered they were great in my closet, and in the kitchen! They are solid and sturdy - I even use them for storing and organizing shoes. Great buy, especially in NYC where you have to squeeze every bit of storage out of a space that you can!
