Looking for a super-easy way to change your life? Start by organizing the place in your kitchen where you keep your pots, pans, and lids.

It’s a little dramatic, but I know this to be true and effective. Because, before I took my own advice, my cookware cabinet was my own personal hell. Everything was so precariously stacked that, whenever I reached for a lid, the contents of the cabinet came crashing down. I became so sick of the cacophony that I ran to my nearest Container Store for a $5 fix to spare myself — and my roommates — from the noise.

My quick fix may have solved my lid problem, but it definitely didn’t solve the pots and pans problem. If only I had known about this best-selling beauty from Amazon first … then perhaps I would have solved all of my issues in one fell swoop. (Okay, okay, at least this one!)

The YouCopia StoreMore Expandable Cookware Organizer, is the ultimate panacea for pesky pans, lids, bakeware, cutting boards, and more. The contraption includes 10 adjustable dividers, which store items ON THEIR SIDES. (This way, you can easily slide stuff in and out without causing an avalanche.) The dividers are easily mountable on a non-slip base, which keeps everything from slipping and sliding around. The YouCopia is even sturdy enough to hold up cast iron. While $32 may seem like a lot to spend on an organizer, it’s totally worth it! (But there is a smaller one for $25 if you want.)

Because 88 percent of the customer reviews clock in at a five-star rating, I couldn’t help but share some of Amazon shoppers’ praise with you


“The StoreMore pan and lid rack stands items in a tidy row, so you don’t have to dig through cabinets while cooking. The adjustable dividers are tall enough for big pans and platters, but fit little lids, too. A sturdy organizer will help you tackle any task that’s thrown your way.”

“By the picture, I was expecting a light-weight plastic base with flimsy metal uprights that would hold a light weight pan or cutting board. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!! This is a very heavy duty base with good grip on the bottom. The uprights are heavy coated wire to prevent scratching of the items it is holding. I am SO PLEASED with the quality of this rack that I will be ordering a couple more to use for my skillets. Buy with confidence as this is a quality product.”

“Loved it so much I bought a second one immediately! Works great for circular pans, 9×13 cake pans, heavier pans, jelly roll pans, awkward collapsible colanders, cutting boards, whatever you want. Non-skid feet is a big plus. I have a Copco 2555-1978 Adjustable Bakeware Organizer that I bought a year ago for my slim cabinet beside my oven, and while that was nice and certainly serves its purpose, if you have the space, get the YouCopia one instead. The accommodation of circular pans/lids is a nice feature over the Copco, and the metal dividers fit a bit more securely.”
