Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HeadboardHanger I'm a hero!
I installed three of these spice racks on the inside of the pantry door in our kitchen. Now I'm a hero with my wife. She loves recovering the cabinet space that all the spices formerly took up in her kitchen. Now they are easy to see and reach on the back of the pantry door. Simple to install. Holds small and large containers. Now my wife has more storage space and I don't need to remodel the kitchen. Wahoo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TNas I'm buying for a second time since mine were lost in a move.
These are perfect. They do not hang forward or spill spices out like other reviewers have stated. I looked at "MsBim47's" review and picture. She has installed hers backwards. If you look at the image on Home Depot's page you can clearly see how to install the baskets, with the corner rail facing outside. She has hers facing the wall. So yes, if you choose to do it like that I'm sure the product will not be practical without leveling and have a poor design. But if you install them like the picture shows you should have no problem. I have gone other places trying to find something similar and I cannot. I'm so happy Home Depot has this 8 years later.

I'm strapped for cabinet space, so I recently installed this on the back of a cabinet door to free up space that was being consumed by a lazy susan full of spices. The product works nicely and is sturdy enough. It's important to note that the assembled product is 12 inches wide, however, the mounting strips can NOT be 12 inches apart. That posed somewhat of a problem for me - I ended up having to glue on the mounting strips because they couldn't be far enough apart to attach to the thick outter edge of my cabinets & the screws included were far too long & would have gone all the way through the door in the area it had to be mounted. Just be careful measuring, but otherwise, great product!

The directions need to be reviewed by some one with little DIY experience. They are not well organized nor do the drawings provide any clear helps. They do mount as designed but with out 20 plus years of mounting alarm devices to sheet rock and thin ply wood skins this would probably not be the case. The product is well suited to the need and with usable instructions should be a good seller if in stock, which was not the case for us.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MsBim47 Good idea - Poor design
You can look at the picture of this spice rack all you want, but it is trick photography! The large shelf tilts forward a little, but the two smaller shelves tilt towards the floor too much. If you install this rack lower than shoulder height, you cannot read the labels of spices. If you don't set a spice bottle just right in the rack, it will tip over and fall on the floor.
We solved the problem by gluing a 1/2" wood nub on the back of each lower side of the small shelves and 1/4" nubs at the back of the large shelves so that the spices and the racks would be level and not lean forward. The nubs also solved the problem of not being able to read the labels lower down.
In the end, these spice racks worked for me (I bought 4) but only with a good bit of extra work. I should have let my hubbie build some from scratch - it would have been cheaper!
Be careful if you buy this spice rack in the store! There were two opened boxes in the store - one had no screws and the other one looked like someone had bent the larger shelf. Later I realized it was bent because someone else experienced what I found out: these shelves are not level and they must have tried to bend it but returned it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mshx This is a good concept, but falls short.
The rack idea is good, but the reality is that it is very limited in use or practicality. The trays can be adjusted, but the two mounting supports are so short that one does not have hardly any choice of spacing the trays. By the time you put in the top tray as high up as one can go on the mounting supports, and the bottom tray at the lowest mounting points, there really isn't much choice or room left for the middle tray.
So be prepared for using only small spice containers in the lower two trays, and the taller spice containers for the top.
I would recommend you try to tape this in place to get an idea of how much room you need top and bottom before drilling any holes etc.
It would be a greater help if the mounting supports were 6-8 inches longer, and had the option of being cut to fit for shorter applications.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bhaven Adjustable spice rack
I bought one of these for my wife. She loves the adjustable shelves (not all spices come in the same size container). I'm thinking of getting one or two for the workshop to hold small containers of fasteners.
They should have designed adjustable shelves years ago!

i installed this on the inside of a kitchen cabinet door. unfortunately, the spices are always falling out because the sides of the racks are too short for tall bottles of spices.
