I put this together in a minute and finally got my pantry organized. I now don't over-stockpile canned goods because I can now see when I only have one or two cans left of something and I know to put it on the shopping list. It holds 3-4 cans of food front to back. My cans used to be a jumbled mess and I would forget I already had refrIed beans and then I would buy more. This rack has helped me do a much better job organizing. I have no complaints. You do have to put the larger cans on the top rack but most goods fit nicely on all the shelves. Easy to put together and works well for home use. I'm using it as 2 separate units on 2 different shelves in my pantry.
It was pretty much a no brainer to put together, except for the bars (the instructions weren't real specific), but finally figured them out, as they go from the front to the back to divide each row of cans or jars. Larger cans should probably go on the top rack. It's a little difficult to see what's in the rows below, but basically try to keep soups, veggies, etc. in a row by themselves. Otherwise, it's a great way to store these items without taking up a lot of space.
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.
I love the concept of this product and I purchased two. The design seemd simple enough but if you don't put the piece together correctly it does not work as well. You must have a shelf tall enough so when you retrieve the cans you can push the top of the underneath shelves up. Otherwise you have problems retriving. That being said, I figured it out and it has solved an organizational issue that made me previously drove me crazy. I would not hesitate to buy this product. It has saved me money as I have a small number of shelves and now am not overbuying. I know what products I have because of this system. I rated it a good because it needs tweeking and the dividers, which are optional to use could use some strengthening.
