Please Ask a Question

We have created a unique new type of product that is very user friendly.  However, at first glance it looks like we are speaking a new language (Vertical Spice) with all our numbers and names.  If you cannot find an answer to your question here, or on our pages, please contact us as we are happy to share our information for your unique opportunity.

 

How To Install

If you can hold and turn a screwdriver, you are qualified for mounting our Spice Racks and Storage Drawers.
 
These units make everyone a DIYer.  
 

Units come pre-assembled (except for the DIY/Partial Assembled units) with an easy step of putting the elastic bands in place.  Your most important action will be to locate the drawers in your cabinet so they don’t interfere with the hinges and doors when operated, very obvious and easy to do.

 

 
Included with each drawer unit is a set of mounting screws (screws extend about 3/8" into your shelf), you supply the Phillips screwdriver. A firm downward pressure on the screwdriver while turning will fasten the self-tapping screws in place. You must install all the screws in the bases to prevent the unit from tipping down when you pull a loaded drawer out.

How-To Install

Easy to follow instructions to install your new Spice Rack Drawers and Storage Solution Drawers.  All you need is a Philips Screwdriver and Pencil/pen or tape.  In a short period of time you will have your drawer units in place, loaded and working for you.

 Adding Bands to your Deep Cabinet Units

A quick look at adding bands to all the sections of your units.  The lower sections have specially designed cutouts to hold the bands. Find spice rack replacement Flex-Bands here.

 

Standard Spice Jar?

There is no standard spice jar, there are many sizes sold by many different companies.
We consider the standard size to be 2" in diameter and 5" tall, this is the larger of the sizes available. 
Premium brands use the larger size, McCormick goes smaller with 1.8" diameter and 4.5" tall.
On the Vertical Spice Units - Half size containers stack very nicely, 2 in the spot of one standard spice, our units have a band to hold each stacked spice jar.
  • Standard Size: 5" tall or less x 2" diameter or less
  • Half-Size: 2 3/8" tall or less x 2" diameter (stack-able)
Common Brands include:
McCormick - Penzeys - Spice Island - Morton and Bassett - Spice Trend

What Are Flex-Bands?

The Flex-Bands are what make the Vertical Spice Drawer Units unique (and patented) and provide the great and easy access to spices.

The bands are 2 mm in diameter with black polyester over a rubber core, crimped into a loop.  Very similar to mini bungie cords or elastic hair bands (pony tail bands).  We found our prototype material at a Craft Store (readily available) and now buy the material in bulk and make our own loops.  We stock bands as "Accessories" for future replacements.

We have bands on the prototype units in our kitchen that are 7 years old and still performing.  Yes, they will wear out, but they are an inexpensive replacement that makes our product design like no other.  

 

How / What To Measure?

All of our units are based on drawers pulling out to give you complete access to your cabinet of containers.  You cannot block a drawer or it will not pull out.  Think of measuring as finding the largest box that will freely slide in and out of your cabinet.

You will need to measure your cabinet for:

Depth  --  From the back of the cabinet to inside the closed cabinet door

Height  --  Space between shelves

Width  --  Narrowest space between frame and hinges

Please visit the "How-to" pages for detailed instructions.

 

What Is My Order Status?

We send you an email when your order is processed and ready to be shipped.

You will also receive tracking information from our shipper when your order is in their hands for transport and delivery.

If you have questions, contact us via email or call us at 1-612-254.2590 Monday through Friday 8am – 5pm.

 

Are These Slides Special?

Remove drawer with slide tab

We use steel ball-bearing 100Lb. rated slides for our pull out spice drawers.

x11 drawers use 10" full-extension slides with 10.5" of travel.  You can access all containers on the drawer.

x14 drawers use 14" full-extension slides with 14" of travel.

x22 drawers use 22" full-extension slides with 22" of travel.

All sliding spice rack drawers are easily removed with a quick lever push on the slide (pull the drawer out all the way to expose the locking tab).

 

Before mounting Spice Racks you can turn the units over to easily access drawer release tab.

After units are mounted, just pull the drawer out to full extension and the release tab will be visible (from below on x11s and x14s) and accessible for drawer removal.

The slide tabs limit the slide extension after the drawer is slid back into place.

Can I Request A Custom Size?

As our customers make comments and requests for alternative sizes we will grow our product family to meet your needs. Please feel free to email us with your wish list and ideas.
 
Vertical Spice carries an inventory of 83 different products.  If you don't see a certain size or configuration, reach out to us to check out the possibilities.

We always have new models in R&D and prototyping, please visit our website again in the future to see what is new.

 

Will Over-Sized Containers Fit?

Our container drawers come in widths of 2.10"-3.25"-4.40"-5.55"-6.7".  If what you plan to store is larger than the drawer width, the flexible sides and drawer spacing could still work for you.

Space between drawers is 0.2" on units with multiple drawers, or when the units are installed tight together.side-by-side-unit-spacing.jpg

Standard Spacing - Units Tight

During installation you can space the different units to give you extra container drawer width space.  Install your first unit, then use a pencil, stir stick, popsicle stick(s) or what ever to temporarily space your next unit for installation.  When your larger containers are on a drawer, they can over hang the side and the elastic side bands will keep them in place and your spacing will give them the room to move.

Where Can The Units Be Mounted?

MOUNTING SCREWS

Mounting screws are included with your unit.  The screws are self tapping and will screw into almost all materials, except for stone, tile or granite (you may have to pre-drill for a metal shelf).

The screws extend through the base .375" (3/8").  Most cabinets and shelves are at least 1/2" and usually 3/4" thick.  The mounting screw should not protrude through the shelf.

If you decide to remove and move your units, the remaining holes are small and not very noticeable.  A little rub of the old hole will smooth it out.

STANDARD CABINETS and SHELVES

Anybody can do it!!

Each unit base MUST be attached to the cabinet/pantry bottom or a permanently fixed shelf with the included screws.

  • The mounting screws will fasten into almost any material, except metal or stone.
  • Failure to attach will result in the Drawer and its contents tipping and falling out when extended.
  • The Drawers are intended for mounting to a fixed base.
  • If mounted to a movable/adjustable shelf, you MUST first secure that shelf to the cabinet side to make it permanent.  A simple "L" bracket attached to the back of the cabinet with the leg on the shelf will work. Home improvement stores carry shelf clips that lock a shelf in place or D.I.Y. with blocks of wood or brackets (not-included).

l-bracket-or-shelf-clip.jpg

  • The contents you store on a shelf and the weight of the Drawer(s) can cause a shelf to bow and the whole shelf could tip when a drawer is extended and the shelf not secured permanently.

WIRE SHELVES

Vertical Spice units can be mounted to wire shelving. Your shelves must be secure and not "tippable". Pull down on the front of your shelf, if it is secure and does not move, our Spice Rack Drawers are compatible.

We carry a Mounting Kit for wire shelves.

spice-rack-mounted-to-wire-rack.jpg

Mounting Hardware we recommend (per each mounting hole):

  • #8-32 x 1 1/4" Round Head Bolts
  • #8-32 Nylon Lock Nuts
  • 1 1/4" Outside Diameter Fender Washers

Spice Rack Mounted to Wire Shelf - Top View

View from the top with drawers extended to show bolts in mounting holes.

6.9" wide bases have 4 mounting holes per base.

All other bases (2.3", 3.45", 4.6" and 5.75") have 2 mounting holes per base.

The bases can be easily drilled if you require alternate hole locations.

 

Advantage of Vertical Spice Racks?

Spend time creating, not searching...

Patented Design - U.S. Patent Number 9,282,821 B2
 
Drawer access to the full depth of your cabinet.
  • You've spent a lot of time and money acquiring your spices, herbs, seasonings and flavors.
  • When planning and creating your dishes and desserts you need quick access to your containers.
  • Vertical Spice provides the tools for quick, easy and repeated access to your investment.
  • Our hidden spice rack drawers can complement your existing storage system or help you re-organize and improve your cabinet space usage.

Greatly improved spice and flavor access for the height-challenged or phyically impaired user.  If you can reach the front of the shelf you can pull-out the drawer and have access to all the goods on your shelf. 

We offer unique, compact Vertical Spice storage drawers that hold a large number of spices and containers in a small area. The drawers pull-out the flavors to you, no removing the front containers to get to the back row, no more tip-overs of front items. The elastic bands and clear plastic fronts give you easy access and visibility to everything stored on your drawers. There is no need to repack your spices, just place your purchased containers on the drawer.

Stop those pesky spices from multiplying in dark places.  Have you ever noticed one or two spices that duplicate themselves?  You check your supply of spices and then head to the store, return and find several of the same spices on your shelf where they weren't before.  The Vertical Spice Rack Drawers will make it easy to see all of your spices when you need them.

Drawbacks of existing spice storage methods:

  • Spice racks on cabinet doors – The door racks take up a lot of space for so few items. The shelves in the cabinets themselves must be narrower just to fit the door racks or items must be stored away from the front of the shelves. Tall items tip out when a door is opened quickly.
  • Lazy-Susan's – Lots of wasted cabinet corners. Hidden containers in the center of the shelves. Tight spaces, easy to knock over containers when reaching in. Spices spin off when turned to view.
  • Tiered shelf racks – A lot of wasted space. Knock down front containers when reaching for back containers.
  • Wicker Baskets and Plastic Tubs - They keep the spices from rolling off the shelf, but not the best for easy access and organization.
  • (Disposable) Plastic Spice Racks - Are you kidding, these products give spice racks a bad name.
  • Drawer Storage – Difficult to grab spices. A lot of wasted space. We already don't have enough drawers for the forks, spoons, knives, openers, spatulas, thermometers, whiskers, stirring spoons, wooden spoons, measuring spoons, pasta spoons, pizza cutters, peelers, well, you get the idea.
  • Counter-top Carousels and Dispensers – Spices age quickly when exposed to sunlight. Many storage methods require filling their containers with your purchased spices.

Can Vertical Spice Units Be Stacked?

The units themselves are not Stackable.
However...
Our units help organize and access the full height and full depth of your spaces.  
To go taller, place your shelf above the lower unit(s), then mount another unit on that shelf.

How Many Spice Jars Will A Unit Hold?

Our most popular Spice Rack, the 222x2x11 will hold 30 spices in a 6.9" wide x 12" high x 10.6" deep space.  3 individual drawers to easily see and access and organize your spice jar collection. 

In our standard-sized Spice Rack world, the largest model, the 222 x 2 x 14 kitchen storage spice rack (3 drawers by 2 tiers) will hold up to 36 standard sized spice containers and 72 half sized containers. The smallest model, the  2 x 1 x 11 will hold 5 standard spice jars.  We have many designs in between.  Consult the PRODUCTS page to compare units, sizes and capacities of our spice rack storage solutions.  

Complimentary to the Spice Racks are the Storage Solution Drawers.  We have a range of models with 2.10", 3.25", 4.40", 5.55" and 6.7" wide drawers.  These units will bring your wide assortment of large sized and shaped containers from the back row to the front without tipping or rearranging every time they re needed. Again, consult the PRODUCTS page or different Category pages to compare units, sizes and capacities.

Drawer Length (between the front and back plastics):

x11  10.05"

x14  13.25"

x18  8.66" per section, 2 sections per drawer

x22  10.7" per section. 2 sections per drawer

 

Will Vertical Spice Units Fit My Cabinet?

Reference Each Specific Product page for detailed size and weight for each unit.  Visit the Product Chart to see a table comparing all available products sizes and capacities.  Use the Cabinet Designer to design your custom organization solution.

There are many styles of units in a variety of widths to meet your custom needs.

  • Our unit bases are available in widths of 2.30", 3.45", 4.6", 5.75" and 6.9".
  • Fit the width of your cabinet based on the BASE WIDTH of the units.  
  • The drawers on each unit are in from the side edge of the base .1" for clearance, so, when you place two units side-by-side you have a .20" space between drawers.  
  • We have a variety of drawer combinations on the bases. 

They come in three heights (base to top of clear plastic front and backs):

  • The 2-Tier racks (222 x 2 x 11 or 23 x 2 x 11) Spice Racks are 10.75" tall (to the top of the clear front and back panels). You will need about 12" from the cabinet base to the bottom of your first shelf to fit standard spice containers.
  • The 1 1/2-Tier racks (222 x 1.5 x 11) Spice Racks are 9.25" tall to the top of the plastic front and back panels. A ½ size spice container on the top shelf requires about 9.5" of clearance from the cabinet base to the bottom of the next shelf.
  • The 1-Tier Units (222 x 1 x 14 or 33 x 1 x 11) products are 5" tall (again to the top of the clear front and back panels). The measurement from the cabinet base to the top of the drawer is 1.5", so the height of your containers determines your fit.
  • x22 units come in a variety of heights, see the specific product pages and charts for all dimensions.

Front Frame Fit:

The front bottom of every unit has a .25" by .80" area of clearance to fit over the cabinet frame.  This allows the unit fit from the back of the cabinet to the inside of the door.

Where Can We Use Vertical Spice Drawers?

Vertical Spice organization drawers are great for the kitchen, but can be used anywhere.  Your imagination will find many applications for our drawers. Here are some of the many Vertical Spice rack drawer applications we have heard of or actually use them for:

  • Cosmetics
  • Lotions
  • Nail Polish
  • Keurig K-cups
  • Medicines and Prescriptions
  • Organization Under Bathroom Sink
  • Vitamins and Diet Supplements
  • Shot Glasses
  • Cleaning Supplies

Each single slide drawer (2.10" and 3.25" wide shelves) can handle up to a maximum of 9 pounds, about the weight of three full 750mL wine bottles. The heavy duty shelves (4.40", 5.55" and 6.7" wide shelves) can hold up to 18 pounds.

Our design created a unique kitchen spice rack, new to stores and the internet. The 222 x 2 x 11 Spice Rack we developed met our needs for compact, sturdy, easy access and good looking. After seeing how well the original design functioned and hearing input from our customers, we have been expanding our family of products ever since. We now have narrower, shallower and shorter designs.

Do These Work With A Cabinet Face Frame?

We build our standard models with a cutout for clearance over kitchen cabinet face frames. During our prototype builds and market study, we found that a majority of the kitchen cabinets have a face frame. The cutout is for clearance only, the mounting screws are what hold the unit in place.

How Do We Clean and Maintain Spice Racks?

HDPE and Maple Shelves:

A soft rag and mild soap will clean-up most spills or stains. Goo Gone works very well on the stubborn stains.

Clear Acrylic Plastic Fronts/Backs

Window cleaner works.  Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner works very well.  Strong chemicals may cause cracking in the Acrylic.

Ball Bearing Slides:

Add a little Petroleum Jelly to the moving and sliding parts if over time the slide movement is not as smooth.

 

Cream (HDPE) vs. Maple Material Differences?

Strong, renewable, beautiful and machinable was the search criteria. We offer both a solid Maple in a clear coat Varnish and an HDPE lumber in Cream color.  Both materials will perform the same and provide similar durablity and easy clean-up properties.  The ultimate choice is cosmetic and personal preference.  Select the Cream HDPE material if the units will be placed in a wet environment, like under your sink.  The materials we chose are meant to last the life of your cabinets.  Below are the details on our spice rack storage material options:

Maple

Taking advantage of Vertical Spice's Minnesota location, home to hardwood forests, we headed north to the lake country and found a wonderful selection of maple products at Aitkin Hardwoods. Besides the wood being beautiful and strong, maple trees are also definitely renewable. Design and production details were worked out and we now receive our boards directly from the mill, supplied with solid pieces for the drawers and edge glued maple pieces to prevent warping for the bases. We are excited about the great look and function of the finished maple drawers. Maple is definitely a beautiful premium product.

Cream (Starboard HDPE)

We are really, really, really excited about this material.  Very tough and versatile.  This is marine grade used on ocean vessels and the same material used in those new Adirondack chairs and other outdoor furniture that will last forever.  You will be showing off your new spice organization and this product will be the centerpiece of your versatile kitchen spice assistant.

 

How Much Space Between Drawers And Units?

Side-By-Side

Our units are designed to fit side-by-side or spaced apart to meet your needs.  Each unit mounts through the base and is independent of other units.

The base is wider than the drawers giving you a space between drawers of 0.2" on units with multiple drawers, or when the units are installed tight together.

side-by-side-unit-spacing.jpg

Standard Spacing - Units Tight

Spaced Apart

Spaced apart to fit containers wider than drawers.  During installation you can space the different units to give you extra drawer width space.  Install your first unit, then use a pencil, stir stick, popsicle stick(s) or what ever to temporarily space your next unit for installation.  When your larger containers are on a drawer, they can over hang the side and the elastic side bands will keep them in place and your spacing will give them the room to move.

Custom Spaced - Units Apart for Larger Containers

 

How To Easily Add Extra Shelf Mounting Holes?

If you have movable shelves, you have the flexibility to adjust the support pegs/clips to give your cabinet shelves better spacing.

Sometimes the pre-drilled holes are not in the perfect place.  Below are some easy steps for you to drill 4 evenly space holes where you want them...

Can Vertical Spice Units Mount To Wire Shelving?

Vertical Spice units can be mounted to wire shelving. Your shelves must be secure and not "tippable". Pull down on the front of your shelf, if it is secure and does not move, our Spice Rack Drawers are compatible.

We carry a Wire Shelf Mounting Kit.

spice-rack-mounted-to-wire-rack.jpg

Mounting Hardware we recommend (per each mounting hole):

  • #8-32 x 1 1/4" Round Head Bolts
  • #8-32 Nylon Lock Nuts
  • 1 1/4" Outside Diameter Fender Washers

The bases can be easily drilled if you require alternate hole locations.

 

What Do The Vertical Spice Product Names Mean?

Names Explained

We have many products of different sizes and designs.  We came up with our "Vertical Spice" languge to try and describe each in a title (Drawer Name).  It appears very confusing at first, but with a few minutes of time you will be speaking the crazy language too.

Our code is broken into 3 parts, DRAWERS x TIERS x DEPTH, for example two different unit names are 222x2x11 or 33x1x14.

  • DRAWERS (Describes the Drawers, width and number of them)
  • TIERS (Describes the Tiers Tall of each drawer)
  • DEPTH (Describes Depth family of the unit)

Unit 222x2x11: the first part (222) means this unit has three 2.1" drawers next to each other, each pulls out separately, the second part (x2) means each drawer has 2 tiers to it, The third part (x11) means the unit is part of our 10.6" deep family of products.

Unit 33x1x14: the first part (33) means this unit has two 3.25" drawers next to each other, each pulls out separately, the second part (x1) means each drawer has just 1 tier to it, The third part (x14) means the unit is part of our 14.0" deep family of products.

Numbers Explained

10.6", 6.9", 2.1", just where did those numbers come from???  Alright, Scott the engineer is used to working with numbers and forgot a majority of the world thinks differently (thank goodness they do).  Our first spice racks are trying to maximize the number of standard jars they can hold so not all dimensions ended in clean 1/4" or 1/2" measurements.  To help you follow Scott's numbers here are some comparable fractions to relate to:

10.6" = 10" and 6/10" (our units are a little less than 10 5/8")       6.9" = 6" and 7/8" (our units are a little wider than 6 7/8")      2.10" = 2" and 1/8"(the drawer is slightly less than 2 1/8" wide))      6.7" = 6" and 3/4" (the 6x1 drawer is slightly less than 6 3/4" wide)

For those still confused, think of the numbers as dollars and cents.  Consider 5.75" to be 5 dollars and 75 cents.  2.10" to be 2 dollars and 10 cents.  So, if you have a space 6" wide, the 5.75" wide unit will fit, as $6 (your space) is greater than $5.75 (unit base).

 

How Easy Is It To Remodel My Spice Rack for Special Fit?

If you are handy with equipment the units can be easily reworked.  The base and drawer materials are all readily machinable and with a little care can be cut to fit your special needs. We coat all exposed surfaces of the Maple with a clear varnish.  The "Cream" units are HDPE and very machinable and solid color throughout.

If you are looking to fit a shallower cabinet, the back of the base and the drawers of the 10.60" units can be cut up to .5" shorter.  If you need to make a narrower unit, the base can be cut between the slides.  Make sure you attach each of your narrow units to the cabinet with at least 2 screws.

Have extra tall spices?  We carry Adjustable Fronts and Backs with pre-drilled holes for easy custom shelf height setting.  Alternatively, to change the spacing between the upper and lower shelves, new holes can be drilled in the plastic.  It is easy to remove a few screws and then take your time drilling the plastic.  When done, you will have a new spacing of shelves to fit your taller spices.

We will customize models to meet your needs and ideas.  If you have special requirements, contact us by email, text or phone and we will work out the details to accommodate your desires.
