Kitchen Cabinet Pots and Pans Organization

Organized Pots & Pans Storage! This is a really easy, great way to store store pots and lids. With a place for every piece it’s easy to put things back where they belong!

You guys, I am SO excited to share this AWESOME new kitchen cabinet organizer with you!! :) I am over the moon about it!! Pots, pans, and lids have always been a never-ending battle in my kitchen cabinets, but NO MORE!! Everything has a place and everything gets put back in it’s place. I’m in love! :)

I can quickly and easily grab anything and put it right on the stove. And then when it’s clean, it slides right back into place.

(The top rack is pulled out a little bit in this picture, but it goes all the way back in for full access to the bottom rack)

The dividers are adjustable. It comes with extra dividers so you can put in as many or as few as you want, making any sized slots you need for truly customized storage.

There’s even a place for all the lids! They’re all together! :) Eeek! I cannot contain my excitement. And I’ve had it for months!! I use this every day ya’ll.

The top and bottom racks move independently for easy access to both the top and bottom racks, just like a dishwasher.

And it doesn’t really take up all that much room either! It is a TOTAL space saver. Here are the product dimensions:

Actual Product Width: 20.75 inches
Actual Product Depth: 22.0 inches
Actual Product Height: 18.13 inches

And here’s the minimum cabinet space you’d need to install:

Minimum Cabinet Width: 20.5 inches
Minimum Cabinet Depth: 22.25 inches
Minimum Cabinet Height: 18.38 inches

I combined three cabinets worth of messy overflowing pots and pans into this one, organized, easily accessible space. My cabinets are so much cleaner and brighter now!

Here are my cabinet dimensions, by the way, just for reference:

30 inches wide
24 inches deep
20.5 inches high

Depending on your cabinet layout, you can mount it on the bottom, back, side or all three for total stability. Ours is mounted at the bottom and back.

Pots and pans have always been the bane of my existence. I don’t like to have to “dig” for stuff. It seems like you just have to take everything out of the cabinets, get the one pan you need, and then put everything back in again. Then do it all over again when the pan is clean to put it away.

hidden drawer slots organization for pots and pans

Before I found these shelves, I pinned a few ideas on my House & Home and Storage & Organization Pinterest boards. I originally thought about doing something like this drawer. Still love this idea. It’s gorgeous. But I didn’t have drawers. And two drawers wouldn’t fit in the small space I had under my cooktop anyway. It is only 20″ high for the whole thing! Most of my pots and pans are 12″, so two 10″ drawers wouldn’t work.

pot rack hidden inside cabinet

I also thought about this. Super creative idea! A pot rack hidden inside the cabinet. But with mine being a lower cabinet, I’d still have to get down on my hands and knees and crane my neck to see under the cabinet any time I wanted to hook or unhook a pan. Plus, what to do with all the lids?? Well, I guess I could’ve done this or this inside the cabinet doors! :)

But when I saw these pullout shelves, I knew they were exactly what I wanted. They had everything I was looking for — easily accessible, adjustable, room for my biggest pots and pans, and even a place for the lids.

They are very well made and you can tell the creators really put a lot of thought into the design and thought about everything. I love products like that.

Here’s the “Pinterest Worthy” version ;)

But I am just as in love with my “real-life” version! :)

Here’s where you can find one of your own:

Rev-A-Shelf 2-Tier Pullout Cookware Organizer — We got ours from our local Lowes store. It was in stock and there was a display model on the floor to test out.

*Not a sponsored post! We did not receive any free product or compensation. Lowes has no idea who I am. Neither does Rev-A-Shelf. I am just in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!! :) Signed, Buddy the Elf. ;)

Now let me show you another kitchen organizer that I could not live without.

OMG great ideas. Pots and pans are the bane of my existence as well! This would give me the incentive to purge some of my collection too, LOL.

Those are great organizing ideas!! Pinning for when I get to re-do my kitchen…or just for when I get my act together to reorganize the one I have now. Those 4-slot organizers are genius for so many things! Now, do you have a Tupperware organizing idea that doesn’t involve nesting all of the bowls so that when my kids (and I) put the dishes away they (we) do it right? I loathe taking out all of the Tupperware bowls to add the clean, dry ones to the stacks. Maybe I just need to purge.
Anyway…thanks for the tips on that pot and pan organizer! I see a trip to Lowe’s in my future – if I can move the Tupperware cupboard to make room for the pots and pans…uh oh.

I am always looking for creative organization tips!! And I have been looking for those types of dividers too!! Thank you!!

Okay, funny story that you have GOT to hear. I ALWAYS love your Miley & Howie posts….my husband & I have a 4 year old Boston and our daughter & son in law have a year old Boston. We were out back throwing the frisbee for “the boys” and my daughter says, “Oh mom you should see the you tube video of the Bostons on the beach, the one always comes up and takes the frisbee from the other one after he does all the work. You should see those two Bostons, they are adorable. I said, ” Are you talking about Miley & Howie? ” She says,”yes, have you seen it?” I then told her about your blog.

Too funny!! Thought you might enjoy ;). Have a great day!

You are utterly brilliant! I have been wanting to do my lower cabinets with pull out drawer, but that wasn’t enough because I’d still have to cram everything in. These structured pull-outs are the best. I’m heading to my local Lowe’s to check them out. Thanks so much!

Such great ideas! My cabinets need a complete overhaul. I just recently bought a new set of bakeware and now need to spend a day on my hands and knees digging out the old stuff to get rid of. Love your kitchen and would die for that stove.

Thank You for posting this!! I’m designing my new kitchen with cabinets right now and I’ve seen this set up for the pots and pans and wondered if it really “worked”. Now to decide if I buy the cabinet with it installed or install our own (which I didn’t know was an option-thank you again!). We are having drawers and I thought about that set up but I didn’t think about some of our pans not fitting in them! Yikes!
And the other organizer is awesome – I need some of those!

The pot and pan organizer is perfect! I am going to look for one.
I currently have the organizer you use for the pyrex/cookie sheets, etc. . .
I have a love/hate relationship with it, however, because it tends to tip over if you don’t take out the cookie sheets, etc. . . so that it remains balanced.
So, in short, how do you keep yours upright?
Thanks!

Hmm… Do you have it stacked vertically, like the one on the bottom left of this picture?

http://www.kevinandamanda.com/whatsnew/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/kitchen-cabinets-1.jpg

For those, we attached them to the cabinet wall so they wouldn’t tip over.

The ones sitting horizontally, like the ones that hold my cutting boards and muffin tins — I’ve never had a problem with them tipping over.

Hope this helps! :)

I just finished a mini makeover of my daughter’s condo galley kitchen and we really did find some better organization opened up a lot of space for her. Still…I hate it every time I open the door where are pots and pans are kept. Ugh. PITA. A pot rack is too big for her space but this is now on my Christmas list for her. Perfect…thanks!
