After years of clinging on to old, busted up pots and pans, I finally dropped them off at a donation center a few months ago and treated myself to a brand-new All-Clad 13-Piece cookware set. Confession: I love cooking with my shiny new pots and pans but I hate figuring out how to store them. My rental kitchen cabinets are deep, dark caverns with absolutely no racks or shelves, which means everything always ends up in a jumbled mess: cookware, sheet pans, Pyrex containers…. you get the idea. The last thing I wanted was for my new pans to get scratched and scuffed up. Thankfully, SimpleHouseware’s Kitchen Cabinet Pan and Pot Organizer came to my rescue, and when I spotted it on sale for just $15.87 (normally $24.99) on Amazon, I had to let everyone know why this bestselling pot rack is such a game changer!
Made from solid steel, the 12-inch-high, five-tiered rack has a sleek design that works vertically or horizontally. Screws are included for mounting, but I opted to do without them (rental issues 101). I just placed it vertically on my counter, put my All-Clad pans into the tiers, and have had no issues keeping it upright so far. In fact, several Amazon reviewers have used it to store cast iron cookware without any issues of it tipping. (That explains the 7,000 glowing reviews that range from “sturdy” to “perfect” to “impressive.”)
Now that my cookware is more streamlined, it’s also surprisingly freed up so much space in my cabinets, giving me more room to store bulky items like the stand mixer that once overtook my countertop. But by far the best part of the pot rack is the simplicity and convenience it has brought to my kitchen. Things are so organized and accessible that I can now quickly grab the exact pan I need without rearranging all of the heavy contents in the cabinet or scratching delicate cookware surfaces.
The pot rack has truly helped control the clutter in my kitchen and is an affordable solution for anyone looking to get more organized. In fact, I’m so impressed that I’m thinking of snagging a second one to get my small appliances and sheet pans in order.
