As Seen on TV: Swivel Store

22 Jul

A few weeks ago, unwilling to embrace the heat, I went into a TV watching marathon. Part of this marathon included commercials. Never really someone to buy some of these things that are seen on TV, I decided to give it a go, because it looked useful.

One of the items I purchased was the Swivel Store. As someone who lives in NYC, space is a rare commodity. While most suburban homes have some sort of pantry, I have a few shelves to store my food. I usually try to buy what I need, but alas I end up storing things so that I don’t have to always run out. And so I purchased a swiveling spice rack.

Before my pantry had little space to spare with things sometimes falling out the cabinet.

And here is the after…

I like it! It holds up to 20 spices. And I can use it for crafts! (That’s what the commercial says.) The only problem is that not all spices fit into the space. A lot of them did, but the ones that did not had to clumsily sit where they usually are.

The final review: Good! If space is limited this is a great buy for $19.99 (plus S+H). They are pretty sturdy and they hold my spices nicely. The swiveling is not too awkward. However, if you do decide to purchase it be aware to think about the size of your spices. After all size does matter!
