If you’re looking for kitchen cupboard organisers for the ultimate spring-clean, you’ve come to the right place.
This list of highly-reviewed products is for those who dream of opening their kitchen cabinets to find that the Home Edit team have breezed through and re-organised everything down to the saucepan lids.
It goes without saying that rise of from-scratch cooking (we’re looking at you, sourdough starters and banana bread bandits) this year has increased the number of tins, mixing bowls, and utensils lining already cluttered cupboards. So this is the perfect time to give your kitchen cabinets and pantry a little attention.
And we’re not just talking about the lauded spice rack. It’s everything from your pantry to under the sink, potato storage (yes, its a thing) and maximising valuable shelf space. There’s even a solution for that tricky ‘void’ either side of your fridge or washing machine. Every shelf, organiser, Lazy Susan and cookware storage solution has been reviewed by Amazon customers and given the tick of approval for quality, smarts and value.
Happy organising, fellow spring cleaner!

WHETHER you follow Stacey Solomon for her relatable parenting methods or ingenious organising tips, one thing’s for certain, you too would have fallen in love with the Lazy Susan for all your storage needs.
We first saw the star, 30, show how she uses the turntable to perfectly contain canned goods in her pantry, but she isn’t the only one praising the cheap and irresistible hack.
Popular organising duo from The Home Edit, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, are also fans of the the rotating tray – which was originally designed to serve or store food.
In their hit Netflix show Get Organised With The Home Edit, the pair transform the houses of everyone from the regular working mum to Hollywood stars, and regularly use the clever storage system to restore order in panties, fridges, wardrobes and cabinets
Since it’s inception, the typically wooden item has increased in popularity, and now with cheap and versatile acrylic versions in various sizes and styles, it’s not hard to see why us regular folk have become obsessed.
One woman followed the likes of organising Queen Stacy and picked up a couple of Lazy Susans from Ikea.
Detailing on Facebook how she keeps her pantry organised, she wrote: “Recently did my quarterly pantry stocktake and did a bit of organising.”
Adding: “I find Lady Susans/Turntables are great to keep pantry stock on to utilise space and make it easy to reach for things at the back – an alternative to pullout drawers.”
But it’s not just pantries where they save on space, as one woman, named Lorenza Stewart-Young, 33, uses a three-tier number to keep her collection of skincare in order.
Sharing a snap of her enviable dresser in the Caroline Hirons Skincare Freaks Facebook group, she wrote: “Can someone please explain to me how I functioned as a human being and skincare freak before this organiser….?”
And added: “I don’t think anything costing 20 squids has brought
Despite its reputation as the heart of the home, the kitchen can often be a nightmare to navigate. We all know the pain of digging around at the back of a corner unit to find the right lid for the saucepan – and it’s never the first one you come across.
In fact, a survey by storage company Caboodle found that two out of three Brits find the amount of clutter in their home stressful and almost three quarters wished they had more storage space.
While a good clear out can help, in the kitchen it can sometimes be difficult to justify – it’s always handy to have spare plates and bowls, after all.
Fortunately, with a few simple tweaks, you can transform jumbled cupboards into easily accessible spaces – and fit more inside too. We’ve rounded up some of the best kitchen storage ideas to help making cooking a stress-free experience.
Immediately double cupboard space by adding a removable shelf. If you have especially deep cupboards, invest in some stackable ones to allow for three or more tiers. An extra shelf can be handy for all cupboards, but especially so for those used for tins and small jars where it can be difficult to see everything you have at once. One of these organisers can stop tins from being lost and forgotten about for months.
Alternatively, if your cupboard isn’t tall enough for an extra shelf, or it’s only narrow, use a tiered organiser to raise up items on the higher levels. This shows off tins and spices at a glance and looks far neater than having them all jumbled together.
Pretty much everyone dreads going in this cupboard but there is hope. A metal rack keeps lids and frying pans in check (it’s also handy for chopping boards), so you can keep the rest of the space free for bulky saucepans. Alternatively, a drawer divider can also also useful for separating pans from lids neatly.
If you’re short on space completely, or have a nice selection of pretty Le Creuset you’d like to show off, take these bulky pans out of the cupboards completely and use a standalone organiser instead. We do think this would work better in bigger kitchens, however.
