Has anyone tried Spicy Shlf for organizing spices etc. it looks too good to be try. Lots of TV commercials and web stuff touting it. But then there are customer reviews disappointed in customer service and delayed shipping. I see Amazon has them also.

Bed bath and beyond usually has seen on TV stuff. Looks good but knowing me, I'd fill the middle so full you couldn't see the spices.

It doesn't seem a good idea to me. Looks like a lot of wasted space on those shelves.
I use turntables for my spices.

I haven't used or seen this one so checked the video to see the concept. I'm afraid of those shelves and everything taking a tumble.

Lots of other options for storage here. Visit one of the stores if you have one close to you. They have great organizers.

Do you have an extra kitchen drawer to store the spices? I use the turntables too. You can find different diameters at the BBB stores.

Like Sis2, I would fill the center and you couldn't see the back row without moving everything which might not matter if you can remember what is back there. (I would,never, ever remember).

I have spices on a turntable but find it wastes a lot of space (above it). To me spices are sooooo hard to find a place to store that is right for you. If you do try this come back and tell us how it worked out.

I looked it up...too much wasted space and too easy to put stuff in front of the spices.

I keep minimal spices in a drawer to the left of my cooktop (above the hot pad drawer Wink ). I showed DH what I wanted and waited and waited for him to build me something so that I could get rid of the jumbled mess of jars and tins in the drawer. I finally purchased two wire "step" racks. With a pair of pliers, I bent the long back legs in and out of the way so that the racks would lay as flat in the drawer as possible. I put the two racks side by side, overlapping as needed and those bent legs sorta hooked the other where the two racks met. Works perfect for my drawer space.

The bulk of my spices are stored in the freezer and I just put as much as I need within a short period of time in the jars...trying to keep them as fresh as possible.

I have a small lazy susan on the top shelf of one cabinet - it has very low clearance and is not useful for other items. Plus, I have the drawer insert for spices. Very handy - you can probably get them from the big box home stores, I requested it when ordering my cabinets.


Fun and Info
