Clearing out kitchen clutter is a never-ending battle. Cleaning is, to most of us, unfun, but when you add a busy schedule to the mix, dread turns into torment just at the thought of keeping things tidy. Domestic diva Martha Stewart once offered a life hack to busy working women trying to keep up: Get “2 to 3 housekeepers.” I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty pricey. Since I’m in the business of hunting down bargains, I’ll offer you a less expensive avenue to meet your goal: the Kitchen Pot Organizer from SimpleHouseware. It might not leave your galley sparkling from floor to ceiling, but it could be a life-changing purchase, and right now you can get it for just $12 (marked down from $16).
This golden nugget of a kitchen gadget is very simple in construction and design, but it does so much. The rack fits in a cabinet and there’s space between each metal bar to store a pot or lid and keep them sorted. That means no more digging under a mountain of pans, anxiously waiting for it to topple before you find the lid you’re looking for.
More than 4,400 five-star reviewers have found kitchen clutter relief with this handy tool.
“I was looking for a better way to organize my pots and pans cabinet,” wrote one now-organized cook. “The lids were always a problem, no matter how I tried to stack them. I looked for racks and found these on Amazon. They looked perfect. And so far they are.”
“I am a much happier person now and no longer feel the need to throw all my lids out the back door!” Shared another relieved shopper. “So nice to open my cabinet and see it nice and neat. Great buy! Great price!”
Oh, but this rack is not limited to pots and pans in its mission to corral your clutter. “I’m using this for baking sheets and cutting boards,” testified one happy shopper. “It is awesome! Everything is so much easier to access, and it looks so much neater!”
If you’re creative enough, you can put this rack to work outside the kitchen too. One DIYer employs a couple in her craft room. “I use one of these to hold special paper so that it is on my craft desk, and the other one holds the tools I use every day to craft cards,” she wrote.
Another shopper used it for a DIY remote learning center. ”Because of remote learning I decided I needed a safe and sturdy area to charge Chromebooks, and this was a great idea,” she wrote.
