Owning a storage lid organizer will change your life
For too many people, finding the right lid to go with a food storage container means digging through a drawer that’s overflowing with them — or worse, opening a cabinet and having them cascade out from overhead. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s such thing as a storage lid organizer, and it can keep the most ungovernable pieces of kitchen clutter neatly stacked in the same cupboard or drawer where you (probably) currently have them in a hopeless heap.
The New York Times’ Wirecutter found what they claim to be the best storage lid organizer, but there are a ton of options out there, and the truth is, they all do pretty much the same things. The key is that they take advantage of vertical space to wrangle storage container lids like they’ve never been wrangled before. Check them out, and enjoy your newfound kitchen nirvana.
6 storage lid organizers to solve a once unsolvable kitchen woe
The YouCopia StoraLid Food Container Lid Organizer is the one Wirecutter named the best.
“At first glance, the YouCopia StoraLid organizer appears to be nothing more than a basic plastic tray. It’s in the details where this little lifesaver earns its precious piece of real estate in my small kitchen,” Rose Maura Lorre, author of the Wirecutter article, wrote. “This sleek, simple apparatus makes quick work of keeping a wide variety of Tupperware-type lids sorted and within easy reach — without fear of a plastic avalanche scattering all over your kitchen floor. The term ‘game changer’ gets thrown around a lot these days, but that’s what this lid organizer has been for me.”
The YouCopia organizer features adjustable slots so you can size them perfectly to fit the lid sizes you have. It also comes in multiple sizes to accommodate how many lids you need to store. Small can hold around three dozen, while the large size can accommodate a whopped 60-some lids.
This smaller lid organizer doesn’t have adjustable sections, but it’s transparent, making it great for upper cabinets. Its compact size is also a good option for smaller drawers or people without a lot of storage containers.
This bamboo option is very similar to YouCopia’s organizer, with adjustable dividers to create personalized sections for your lids. The wooden materials make it a bit more upscale, though, and because it’s made of wood, it’s also mountable.
If you’re looking for a more affordable bamboo option, this is it. It’s also a bit more compact, making it a great choice for storing lids in smaller drawers or tighter spaces.
If you have shallow cabinets, it can be tough to find a lid organizer that will fit. The Everie organizer is made for 12-inch deep cabinets, making it the perfect choice. It also boasts built-in handles.
For those who have a ton of food storage containers, the Swommoly organizer is the way to go. Its expandable length makes it one of the largest organizers on the market, creating room for dozens of lids in adjustable compartments.
