As your cooking knowledge and skill grow, you will be experimenting more with herbs and spices. Guess where this leads you to? Kitchen drawer or cabinet full of bottles and packets of herbs, spices and seasoning blends. There are chances that some of these will be on the kitchen counter too. Surely, you don’t want a messy counter nor a cluttered drawer or cabinet. Your best cooking moments should not be spent searching through the cabinet. Therefore, an organized corner with a practical spice rack organizer helps. Before you check out the spice rack organizer ideas below, read about the advantages of using an organizer and things to consider when buying yours.
Why Use a Spice Rack Organizer
- It helps keep cabinets, drawers or kitchen counter organized. Pleasing to the eye.
- Hold bottles upright and in place. In this case, it allows you to find and grab what you need quickly. Wouldn’t want to burn your garlic while searching for the spices, do you? Well, it happened to me – searching for the chilli flakes, burnt garlic.
- Customize spice arrangement to your needs. Herbs and spices that are commonly used can be arranged on a rack nearer to the cooking counter. While those less common can be organized in the cabinet. Or arranging all in one rack but those needed more often in the front row. All to your preference.
- Maximize the space you have got. Herbs and spices neatly arranged in a 3-tier rack hooked onto the wall will give you all the counter space.
- A decorative piece on your kitchen counter. While some spice racks are meant to be placed into the cabinets, others are in fact eye-catching to be displayed on the counter.
Which of the above is important to you? Get the best spice rack organizer that suits your needs and wants.
Things to Consider When Buying a Spice Rack Organizer
- Location and space. Decide where you want to place the rack – in the cabinet, drawer or kitchen counter. Measure the space availability and compare with the product specification as I am sure you do not want to go through the hassle of returning it.
- Adjustability. Some spice racks are adjustable and it will help to maximize your space availability.
- Capacity. How many herb and spice bottles do you have? Are you planning to display them all or only those that you use regularly? You may consider buying 2 units that accommodate a different number of bottles. One in the cabinet and another on the countertop.
- Assembly. Some racks need to be assembled and special tools might be required. Also, consider if you are able to do it yourself as some mounting methods can be cumbersome.
- Jars inclusive. Check the jar sizes. Some may not fit the whole jar of store-bought spices. You may end up throwing away the extras or having more bottles cluttered in your cabinets.
- Spices inclusive. Herbs and spices included may not be the ones you use. Additionally, they are not necessarily the freshest.
The price range for a spice rack organizer typically varies from $10 – $50. However, some pretty units that doubled as decorative pieces may cost more than $50, even $100 and more.
Let’s get started with spice rack organizers under $20, followed by a few more priced between $20 – $50.

Besides using this for spice bottles, jelly jars or canned food fit well. This is meant to be mounted on the wall. All mounting hardware (screws/wall anchors) are included.
The good. The rack comes in two separate units. This allows you to adjust the heights between them according to your need. You may even creatively install them in zig-zag position.
The bad. The strength of the mesh can be better. The bottom may be uneven and some may droop at the centre. This will cause your spice bottles to slide to the centre. However, if the shelf is fully filled, it will deter the bottles from sitting on a slant.
Overall. This is a simple spice rack but serves its purpose for less than $20. You get to decide where and how to position it.

The bad. This 2-Tier turntable can only be used as a single unit. It cannot be used separately because only one tier has a rotating base.

#4 DecoBros 3-Tier Expandable Cabinet Spice Rack Step Shelf Organizer
- Dimensions: 12.5 to 25W x 9.75D x 4.5H inches; 3 inches depth per shelf
- Expandable width from 12.5 to 25 inches
- 3 Levels of storage space
This spice rack organizer has 2 shelves, 1 large and 1 medium. You can either use as one expandable unit or use both separately.
The good. Spice bottles can be arranged neatly on the step shelf in the cabinet and the elevated steps allow you to easily see all your spices. A deep cabinet has an advantage as you may arrange one unit behind another – elevate the back unit using a wooden box or similar and you will have 6 steps of neatly arranged herb and spice bottles.
The bad. This is not meant for small cabinets that is low in height. If you have larger/higher spice bottles, they do not fit on the top shelf. And, having these arranged on the front row will block what is behind. It defeats the purpose of having this expandable cabinet spice rack.
However, if there is some extra space in width, the higher bottles can be arranged as is by the side with the smaller ones on the shelf.
Overall. While this is good for organizing herbs and spices in your cabinet, it is also suitable for the countertop. No more scattered bottles, jars and miscellaneous. Neat and tidy it is.
#5 InterDesign Linus Spice Storage Rack – 3-Tiered Corner Organizer
- Dimensions: 14 x 10 x 4 inches
This 3-tiered rack is ideal for corners of deep cabinets and countertops.
The good. The ribbed base and raised rack edges prevent spice bottles from sliding. Since this rack is not mounted or glued on, it is easily taken out from the cabinet for cleaning.
It can be difficult to see all the way into the deep corner. Having the spices bottles raised in the end corner, you will be able to see them easily.
The bad. It may be difficult to read the label of bottles in the middle or upper row as each level is only 1.5 inches higher. If you have various sizes of spice bottles, try arranging the smaller one in front and taller ones at the back. This will increase visibility.
Overall. Easily maximize the corner space with this 3-tier corner organizer and you need not worry about mounting or assembling this unit. Serves its purpose well. You may now effortlessly find your tidily arranged spices at the corner.
#6 DecoBros 3 Tier Wall Mounted Spice Rack

- 3.5” depth holds up to 3.1” diameter bottle/jar
A wall-mounted multi-purpose rack for spice bottles and food jars or cans.
The good. Besides the kitchen area, this is also suitable to be mounted on the inner pantry door. You may consider mounting 2 or 3 units on the door to organize miscellaneous items too, together with your herbs and spices. It helps greatly to declutter your pantry.
The bad. Can be better if it is deeper. The depth of the basket can only hold spice bottles in one row. If you have smaller bottles and wanted to maximize it, you will have to stagger the position.
The strength of the mesh needs improvement though. The bottom may droop at the centre if the bottles are too heavy. You could arrange the bigger/heavier bottles on the side while the smaller ones in the middle.
#7 12 Magnetic Spice Tins by Talented Kitchen
- Each container measures 2.5 inches diameter x 2 inches high
- Each container holds 3 ounces
There are 12 spice tins in this set and 113 spices labels are included. The tin cover has a see-through lid and the base with magnetic backing.
The good. These magnetic spice tin can be attached to refrigerator doors, grills or to any flat metal surface. I believe this is the best option to organize your herbs and spices where space is limited, freeing up your cabinets, drawers or countertop.
With the pour and shake design, you will have the option to use it for either seeds or powdered spice.
The see-through lid enables you to easily identify the herbs and spices. Furthermore, the label that comes with these spice tins is transparent PVC material with large black fonts for easy reading.
The bad. Some of the lids may be too tight, thus difficult to turn. You may have to spend some time to find the best match among the 12 tins.
After some time using these spice tins, you will notice that it becomes a bit difficult to turn the lid, closing or selecting the pour or shake option. This may be caused by the tiny bits of herbs or spices that got stuck between the rim and lid. In this case, give the tin a couple of gentle knocks after each use so that the bits and pieces drop down to the tin. Also, while filling up the tins with your herbs and spices, try not to fill them too full to the rim.
Overall. By far, these handy storage jars with magnetic backing is the best option where limited space is concerned. You can make full use of the side of the refrigerator. If the refrigerator is a bit far from the cooking counter, you can install a Stainless Wall Plate Base nearby to use as the base.

The bad. The holes in each lid are a bit tiny. Spices in powder form get through but those in seeds form or herbs like basil or thyme don’t. You will have to take the lid off to pour content into your palm or use a measuring spoon.
The bottles don’t hold much. Filling up the bottles and keeping the extras in the cabinet might be a deterrent for some people. But then, this is a beautiful and compact piece to be displayed on your counter with easy access.

The capacity of the jar matches the standard retail pack. Thus, you only need to fill them up once with no extras to be kept separately.
The bad. After some time using, some of the lids have difficulty to turn. So, dispensing will not be possible without removing the entire lid. This is caused by the herbs or spices being stuck in the lid components when you are shaking the ingredients out. With this issue in mind, you may want to give the lids a clean wipe with towel paper every now and then. Also, give the spice jar a couple of gentle knocks after every use so that the herbs and spices will drop down instead of being stuck in the lid.
Overall. This is a sleek and functional spice rack organizer for your kitchen counter that leaves you with more space to work on and easily grab your much-needed spices.

The good. The drawer pulls out and lowers to display spices at eye-level thus you can easily find and reach your spices. This compact unit saves valuable cabinet space. All your spice and seasoning bottles can be arranged neatly in this spice rack organizer, leaving more space for other items.
The bad. Made of plastic, it is a bit flimsy. But once you have arranged the spice bottles into the organizer, it becomes sturdier. Take note that having glass spice bottles may put too much weight on this plastic organizer. Having a mixture of spices in plastic and glass bottles will solve this problem. Balance is the key.
Overall. Neatly placed in the cabinet with the herbs and spices in it, this organizer is a great space saver with ease of accessibility.

You can opt to stack one on top of another or place side by side to maximize space. No worries about damaging your cabinets if things go wrong as no mounting and glueing are needed.
The bad. IF you expand the shelf too wide, the middle of the rack is not sturdy enough to hold a certain weight, especially bigger glass spice bottles. Try to arrange those on the side while the smaller and lighter ones go to the middle.
Although no tools are needed to set this up it can be complicated as there are too many small parts to figure out which goes where. Made worse because no manual is included in the package. Well, there is one thing called “YouTube” :-). There is quite a number of “how-to” videos to guide you through the assembly. Make it fun, do it with your family.
Overall. At one glance, you will be able to see all your herbs, spices and seasoning blends. With the flexibility to adjust the width of the rack to fit into the cabinet, it helps to maximize the space. In addition, extremely easy to take your needed spice.
