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 Perfect shelf basket These baskets are sturdy and love the silver matt finish. I use them for smaller bowls. It gives more space in my kitchen and linen cupboards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not stable I bought this to store some of my coffee cups in one of my kitchen cabinets, but since it bounces, I decided it wasn't a safe way to store anything breakable. There's just too much spring and bounce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I purchased two of the small and one of the large undershelf baskets for a closet I am organizing. They are nice and study and can work on a shelf up to an inch thick. These baskets are also much nicer looking than other undershelf baskets I have seen, and that in turn keeps my closet nicer looking. Undershelf baskets are a terrific way to utilize all available space without having to pile things on top of each other. I would definitely order more of these without hesitation. I am very happy with them. I have one suggestion for The Container Store: It would be helpful if in addition to overall measurements you offered usable, inside measurements as well.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for renters! I bought 2 medium undershelf baskets. One is in my "pantry" - really just a wide cabinet. Best option for the price and use of space, it holds a ton of stuff - 3 boxes of tea, granola bars, bags of chips - that normally took up the space to fit larger boxes of cereal and such. I use another basket in my cabinet for cups. I don't know why, but everyone gives me mugs as gifts. I must have 25. This shelf fits about 12 of them and allows the other 12 to sit on the shelf bellow it. Great use of space and cheaper than installing a new shelf that we would never be able to use in another apartment! My only criticism - this shelf shakes a lot when you open and close the door, although i am confident it will not break.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't Project Out Beyond Shelf Most undershelf baskets have a lip at the bottom to keep things from falling out, which is fine, but in all the baskets I've seen, the lip projects out 1/2" - 3/4". Sadly, there isn't that much clearance between the edge of the shelf and the linen closet door. This unit worked very well. This fits tight against the shelf and doesn't project beyond 1/8". I am not using it for heavy items, it sags a bit even under the minimal weight I have on it. But, it gives me a place to put the odd things that wouldn't sit quite right on the shelf, so I'm very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! This item is a great space saver if you have an unused area below a shelf. It installs so easily, and stays sturdily in place. I was worried the bars at the top would interfere with the shelf above, but it doesn't seem to be a problem. I haven't put anything really heavy in it, but it seems like it could hold up.
Date published: 2013-04-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps store more I really like how easy these are to use. The only drawback is that I wish the arms were thinner so that dishes/glasses on the shelf above wouldn't have to be organized around them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces under shelves These are perfect for under the shelf in my laundry area. I now store my dryer sheets and stain sticks in them. Also a great spot for flashlights and packs of batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Moley Double-Your-Storage We have a pantry with shelves that are nice and tall. Of course that ample space means fewer shelves! Thank goodness we found the most elegant solution. We just stuck a few of these in varying sizes in our pantry and viola! Our towels and rags and other sundries are now stored out of the way, but in the pantry nonetheless! This was exactly what we were looking for. The shelves are so inconspicuous the only reason you'd have to worry about them getting in the way is if you have really tall items on the shelves under where you've hung a basket-drawer. We had this problem with a large, tall bottle of oil, but that is the result of our shelf spacing, not the drawers we added. With minimal planning you can double your storage space with zero construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I really like this product because it really takes take of dead space that went unused before. I use it in tall laundry closets, bookshelves and kitchen cabinets.
Date published: 2013-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Practical Than I Initially Thought I bought this to help organize my new cabinets. I wasn't sure how useful it would be for me as I could not think of shelves that didn't have items too tall to use this. I was wrong. I ended up putting it on a shelf where I keep my mugs. I keep boxes of tea, etc. on the organizer. It definitely makes everything more accessible and in an attractive manner.

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
Date published: 2016-10-22

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
