For anyone currently enduring the trials and tribulations of awkwardly shaped kitchen drawers, this $10 drawer organizer from Joseph Joseph is nothing short of a life-altering solution. Amazon shoppers are so obsessed with it that it’s frequently the bestselling drawer organizer on the entire site. And I just so happen to know one such obsessed Amazon shopper — it’s Kitchn’s very own Lifestyle Director, Lisa Freedman, who claims that “the system is basically perfection.”

This utensil organizer is unlike any you’ve probably ever seen before. Instead of nestling your cutlery side by side in horizontal compartments that may or may not fit in, say, a narrow drawer, the Joseph Joseph organizer cleverly slots forks, knives, and spoons vertically, making it a clever solution for even the skinniest of kitchen drawers.

Lest you worry that you won’t be able to tell your spoons from your forks from your butter knives, the DrawerStore comes with little icons to indicate which belongs in each slot. And as long as the drawer you are yearning to organize is at least 3.25 inches tall, you should be good to go with this bad boy. But, of course, I recommend measuring your drawer to be safe before clicking that “add to cart” button.

And now, the Amazon shopper testimonials you’ve all been waiting for/

“I don’t have many drawers, so I saw these weird silverware trays and I figured, why not? I love them! I got two and put one on each side of the drawer. This allows me to put random things in between them that I had a hard time finding a place for. I should probably mention that I have a service for 16, and it is REALLY, REALLY heavy Oneida flatware. I have a standard size drawer and even the height is fine. They also stay where the heck you put them, even with the way that my husband slams those drawers shut! All around a great purchase!”

The fact that this shopper calls them “weird silverware trays” is iconic.

“I have a tiny kitchen with only 3 drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons in each slot. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!”

See, this shopper calls the organizer “a godsend!”

“I thought this would be handy and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I got two, because I inherited my grandmothers silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer.”

This shopper bought two! Actually, so did the first reviewer I quoted!
