The can racks were just as pictured, and were easy to assemble! Just be sure to get the sides turned the right way around, and then easy peasy! Great product - I've already recommended them to a friend whose mother has a pantry badly in need of better organization! I'd moved, and our new kitchen has more storage space, but set much lower and deeper in than the old place - these can racks were perfect for the space, and helped me organize my canned goods nicely. This item is actually 2 racks that can be used separately, or stacked, just as previous purchasers had mentioned. I bought 2, which I used as 4 separate racks - just the right # for what I needed. You can fit 3 cans wide by 3 cans deep of 15 to 18.8 oz cans per row, for a total of 9 per row, or 27 per entire 3-row rack. I had some larger, wider cans (28 oz), so I took out one of the rows (as another customer had done), and that allowed for 4 total per row (OK, I actually got 6 in one metal row, with 2 cans sticking out the front a bit!) - so, didn't get as many cans in that stack, but I got those large cans of yummy green enchilada sauce in it! I also had some shorter, narrower cans (10.75 oz), and was able to fit 4 deep - not sure if you could get 4 columns per row, as I didn't have enough to test that. They also come with thin metal insertable column separators, but I didn't use those. In the lower shelf areas, it's a bit hard to see what you're looking at unless you get on the floor, which is fine - I just figured the separators would just get in my way, or I'd knock them off-kilter or off the rack entirely - though they might have been fine, and perhaps even helped... They might especially be helpful for getting the cans in straight columns, and all the columns in a row, as a couple of times I had a spot of trouble with this, but then I was doing this on the floor and reaching back into the cupboard - then you could either remove them or leave them, as you wish. I won't use them stacked - at least I won't need to in this house. I'm sure they'd be just fine stacked - especially for when you're removing cans, but when putting them in you might want a 2nd person to help hold the stack steady??? Again, great product for organizing your canned (or even some bottled) goods! Thanks, Overstock.com!!!
Wow, what a difference this heavy duty can rack made in my limited city pantry. This is a well made product that holds at least 27 cans, but I got, including 3 28 oz cans on the bottom rack, 18 15 oz and up cans, and 16 5 oz cans, plus a square can of Spam. I can now see exactly what I have available, canned goods wise. The racks are adjustable, the spacers are loose and not really needed, the rack goes together in seconds, and I'm very happy I bought this item. For a larger space or bigger family, I suggest the taller rack, or at least two of these.
It really didn't save me any space in my pantry. I stacked the cans on top one another prior to receiving this product. However, it does look more organized than before. If you are going to buy more than one of these buy the double-high rack it can be single high as well.
