Product Information

By raising items up to where you can spot them, our three-tiered shelf makes things in the back easier to find. It will expand to custom-fit your cabinet space. Each Large Expand-A-Shelf features three tiers - your shelf surface creates a fourth storage tier. It accommodates larger jars, cans, tins and boxes.

How do we measure?

  • Expands from 13" to 25"


Made In:



  • 13"-25" x 11-5/8" x 6-1/8" h

Large Expand-A-Shelf is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful This shelf is not only functional but sturdy and looks good. Some of these type things are cheap and come unconnected very easily. This one is my favorite for clients' homes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Can See Clearly Now Perfect for pantries and cabinets. Can hold a variety of cans and bottle sizes. I love how the tiers make everything visible and gives me plenty of room in my pantry for my new storage bins. The only con is that it does not sit flat on my shelf when I expand the shelf to its full length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see all of the canned goods! No more buying canned goods that we already had in the pantry because we couldn't see them stacked in their pyramid! Now we can see all of the canned goods we have and easily reach them. I didn't even consider that the actual shelf serves as another little step for this rack. We have a really deep pantry so I cut a piece of foam board to fit behind the expand-a-shelf so that none of the cans fall off the back and it works perfectly. Love that I could expand it to fit the whole shelf or leave it narrower to just use part of the shelf if I wanted. Awesome product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more expired food I bought two of these for my pantry. These are large enough that you can put even large cans on them and they fit. In the past, I have had to throw away can goods that were too old to eat because I lost them in the back of the pantry, Now I can see everything at a glance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional A little loose when extended to full length but a little tape keeps it from moving. Works well to organize canned goods and keeps them in sight. I no longer have to wonder whats nehind the first row.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect can organizer Love that I can now see all of my cans large and small. It’s always frustrating not being able to see everything you have and this tiered shelf is perfect to display it all and fits most shelf lengths. Definitely would buy it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mega expand a shelf I like this tiered shelf because I can see what is in the cupboard. It is wide enough to hold bottles of oil, crackers etc. I liked it so well, I purchased a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed my bar Perfect for what I needed for a fraction of the cost. Needed a bottle stand to display the liquor in my bar. Apparently liquor/bar stands are very expensive. I found this and it did the exact same thing for under $20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product It allows me to free up half my cupboard space! Normally I don't place items back more than a foot now all the way back. So it allows use of the entire cabinet depth if you push it to the back. Bought second one that is less deep on each shelf and I love that one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I love this product! I have the smallest kitchen on earth so this really helps it look clean and organized. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement For years I've had a mess of a spice cabinet. It wasn't even unusual to open the cabinet door and have a jar of oregano fall, or a domino effect of spices falling on other spices and all over the counter. Or trying to find one spice in a cabinet full of spices and pulling them all out and then shoving them all back and closing the door before something fell. Not anymore. I opted for the Large Expand-A-Shelf because some of my spice jars are large and I wanted the room. I love the new area. Now, just gotta keep it this nice and organized. At least this helps... a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my pantry I have deep pantry shelves so instead of placing this at the back wall, I placed it against the left wall. I can reach in easily with my dominant right hand to get things. I still can easily see the labels and there is room for my can dispenser on the right. This item works for me and I’m happy with the Large Expand-A-Shelf.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expand A Shelf Great product. Allows you to see canned and other packaged foods at one glance. When ordering realize that there are multiple shelves in one box. I ordered too many.

how many of these do I need

I have mason jars that are 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 how many of these will fit on one 3 tier shelf?
Asked by: britt123
It depends on how many cans you have. They expand out to be pretty long. Try one and buy more as needed.

Will this work on white grid closet shelving? i.e. Is the bottom solid?

Asked by: awch
I have the white grid. Yes it works. You will have to adjust it when you fully expand it so it doesnt tilt in between the grid. But works just fine.

I am interested in the mega expand a shelf.

are each of the 3 shelves a different size? i need at least one shelf to be almost 4" to accomodate the large Progresso soup cans. Also do they expand width wise as well? To what size? How tall is the highest point? Do they all come with the non skid surface? Please answer all questions so I know which shelf unit is right for me! Thanks!
Asked by: jerseyjill
The top shelf of the Large Expand-A-Shelf is 3 1/2" in depth. The two bottom shelves are equal in depth at 3 7/8" deep. This item expands from 13" to 25" in width, the tallest point being 6 1/8" in height. This item does not have a non-skid surface. For a non-skid surface option, please visit the madesmart Expandable Shelf Organizer.
