Rolling pantry organizers

Rolling pantry organizers are sanity savers as well as space savers. These handy storage solutions make it easy to store and access items in awkward spaces, such as the narrow gap alongside a refrigerator or on the floor of a pantry closet–places where it’s easy to lose or overlook stuff.

Many rolling pantry organizers (sometimes called pull-out pantry organizers) require installation–here are three space-maximizers that don’t:

  • The 5-Tier Slide Out Pantry is a 54-inch-tall rolling shelf caddy that’s a mere 5.25 inches wide and 18 inches deep, so it can easily fit between your fridge and counter, cabinet or wall.  The five shelves provide plenty of room to organize packaged foods, canned goods and cleaning supplies. The raised sides on each shelf prevent items from falling off when the unit is rolled out.
  • A similar option, but smaller, is the three-shelf Slide Out Storage Tower–it’s just 5 inches wide but over 21 inches long and about 30 inches high (which also makes it useful as a laundry room caddy, since it can fit between a washer and dryer).
  • The heavy-duty steel chrome wire Slide Out Pantry utilizes your pantry floor while keeping items off the floor.  The ventilated design makes it ideal for storing produce. It expands from 16 to 24 inches wide to fit your available space. Slide Out Pantry Image

Pantry Shelf Organizers

All pantries have one structural element in common: shelves.  And whether your pantry is a spacious walk-in or a single cupboard, there always seems to be a desire for more shelf space.  But adding more shelves is rarely a feasible option.

Luckily it’s easy to make the most of your existing shelf space with the help of pantry shelf organizers.  Here are three types of these super space maximizers:

  • Tiered organizers.  Otherwise known as stair-step risers, these three-level pantry shelf organizers are designed to keep items in the back of a cabinet visible and accessible.  One good example is the Expand-A-Shelf which features an expandable design that can fit within areas measuring anywhere from 14 inches to 27 inches wide.  It’s also available in a larger version, the Mega-Expand-A-Shelf.
  • Slide-outs. Also known as pull-outs or roll-outs, most slide-outs require installation. Two that don’t are the copper Pull Out Pantry Organizer and the plastic Pull Out Cabinet Baskets.
  • Can racks.  Made for storing canned foods and beverages, Canned Food Storage Rack Imagecan racks perform double duty as both storage solutions and dispensers. Can rack shelves are angled so the next can in line gently rolls forward once you remove a can in the front.  The three-shelf Canned Food Storage Rack even has adjustable dividers that keep rows separated so you can easily sort cans by size or type.
