Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheaper than computer risers One for monitor screen is apprx. 9x9x4". One for laptop is the Medium Cabinet Shelf 12-1/4" x 10-1/4" x 5-3/8" h. In an attempt to make sitting at a computer for hours more comfortable, I used them to raise the monitors closer to eye-level. They work, have been for years. I can even use the slots to hold open thin notebooks while I type away. Only problem is that if i slide my laptop around to change the screen's angle, sometimes the slots can unhook my computer's battery. My fault for being lazy. Can't hold it against the shelves as they were not designed for computers. Ah, but a computer plus is that these non-solid bottoms provide excellent ventilation for the laptop. They also allow me to use the space beneath the electronics. Now I can store more useless stuff on my desk, yay. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximize space Excellent product. It is not bulky and is great to maximize the space for little items like small jars. If you use small baskets for measuring spoons, lids and bag clips, etc. you can keep the baskets on this rack - doubling the space capacity. So handy! January 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy spacemaker Fits well for the extra space I needed and is very sturdy. December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by doubles space I have several of these and keep finding more places to use them. They have doubled the use of cupboard space which makes things much easier t ouse/get to. December 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Pantry is now larger All I did was buy some Cabinet Shelves from The Container Store and all of a sudden my pantry seems twice as large. Amazing. I feel like I really accomplished something. April 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organized Kitchen pantry My pantry is so organized now. It's so much easier to reach plates and dish without removing everything. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perf! This was just the right size for my space and it is, as is typical of the container store, of excellent quality. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Space Saver Great space saver for small kitchens. Makes my cabinets look so orderly! March 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for kitchen storage Makes my cabinets much more useful, and my dishes more accessible. October 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by white cabinet shelves Neat and compact. Made arranging little bowls very easy and accessible. Nice clean lines. Great organizing tool October 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love these shelves! Creates extra space in my kitchen cabinets. Multiple sizes make them flexible in different places. Love them! October 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! June 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Sturdy I used these shelves in my buffet cabinet. They doubled my storage space! May 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazed how one item can create so much more room in my kitchen cabinets! March 26, 2013
