Right now, I’d bet that I have at least ten cans of crushed tomatoes in my cabinet. No, I am not gearing up for a marathon bolognese-making session or cooking for a small army. The reason for this overstock is a bit more embarrassing than that. I’m never quite sure what staples I have at home, so when I buy some at the store “just in case,” I end up with too many tomatoes — and usually not enough of something else. Well, something tells me I am not the only one in need of a better home inventory system, because the folks over at Simple Trending have come up with an easy-to-assemble solution for keeping cans in order. Meet the Can Rack Organizer from Simple Trending.

The Can Rack Organizer is a three-tiered metal rack that sits easily on your kitchen counter, in the cabinet, or on the shelf. It fits as many as 36 cans (or jars) in a layout that makes them all easy to see and keep track of. As one reviewer shared, “I reorganized my mother’s pantry and this product has been the most amazing space saver of all time. It took an insane amount of cans and organized them into a way to see exactly what she was low on and needed to get more of at the store. It works well for her because she tends to buy three or four cans of the same product.” Or in some cases (ahem, me), 10 or 11. Agrees another user, “Highly recommended them, it is great to be able to see which canned items we have or don’t have instead of buying many of the ones we already have vs the ones we actually need.”

All of the tools you need to assemble the storage shelf are included in the package, and users report that it takes just a few minutes to put it all together. Rubber pads ensure that the rack will stay put and not damage your shelves, counters, or cabinets, and six plastic dividers (two per shelf) are adjustable to accommodate different sizes of products. Each Can Rack Organizer spans 17.4″ x 13″ x 13.75″, but if you need more storage, just buy another Simple Trending Can Rack Organizer and stack in on top of the first. Yup, they’re designed that way, and lots of customers commented that they own multiple sets. Could you fit more cans into the same square footage without the rack? Maybe, but what good is that if you’re just going to lose track of them again (I’m looking at you, crushed tomatoes).

Simple Trending’s rack gets particularly glowing reviews when it comes to durability. “I SERIOUSLY tried to get this product to fail and placed every known cylindrical pantry item on this rack… and it held up to all the abuse,” commented one buyer. “It. Won’t. Fail. I carried the container filled with cans and it didn’t bend. I tried linen products on it… now my linen cabinet looks organized… it even holds bananas.” That’s right, this rack isn’t just for cans — or just the kitchen, for that matter!

If you’re still not sure if this rack is worth buying, consider this review. “I am a professional organizer and use these for my clients pantries all the time! I have tried several, however this one is the best one and my go to product. It takes a few minutes to assemble but very easy. It is sturdy and comes in a couple colors. This is a must have for can storage. It fits all sizes of cans with a slider that adjusts to can sizes. Great product and great price!” Sounds like a winner to me.
