Are you familiar with CanOrganizer?
I’ll admit that I was not, until they contacted me about reviewing their products. I do, however, own 2 other brands/types of can rotation systems, and they were WAY more expensive than CanOrganizer’s. So, I was interested to see how their stuff compared.
The organizers arrived flat and wrapped in plastic. I was a little nervous about assembling them so I turned that job over to Macy. Plus, if a 10 year old can assemble them, anyone can…right?
Here’s what your CanOrganizer will look like straight out of the package:
I liked the fact that it was clearly labeled with which parts to remove and discard. One of my organizers was not labeled, which I’m guessing was a fluke thing, but it wasn’t a big deal. We used one of the others for reference.
There were also printed instructions. We had a little incident with ours getting cut in half by an over zealous kid with scissors:
No worries, though, because there’s also an assembly video online.
And then she got to work.
I got the cupboard size, because my pantry is RIDICULOUSLY small. It might be my least favorite thing about this house.
The cupboard size held 7 cans, in my highly scientific experimentation.
What I liked:
Both of the other can rotation systems that I own have tracks, making it so that you can only use very specific can sizes. The CanOrganizer boxes have “ramps” (for lack of a better term), so you can use a a variety of can heights. See how the mandarin oranges are way shorter than the rest? They rotated just as smoothly.
The different size options. My pantry is so shallow that the other systems I have don’t work in the pantry and are relegated to a storage room in the basement.
The fact that they could be easily labeled or even craftily embellished.
What I’m not so sure about:
I’ll admit that I’m a little worried about durability, with them being cardboard. However, the cost is low enough that I’m willing to take the chance and I’ll definitely be getting some more.
And, we definitely could not have put them together using just the diagram. We for sure needed the video.
What’s in it for you?
A chance to give your own pantry/cupboard/storage room a CanOrganizer style makeover!
CanOrganizer is giving one lucky reader a 4 pack of organizers in the size of her (I mean it *could* be “his”, but I’m pretty sure there are no dudes reading this) choice.
Click on over to CanOrganizer and look at the sizes. Come back and leave a comment ON THIS POST (on the blog, not on Facebook or in response to your email subscription) saying which size you’d choose.
Get a second entry for leaving an additional comment telling me what food item you stockpile (for me it’s totally brownie mix).
I’ll leave the contest open through noon on Monday.
