The kitchen in my house is a galley style kitchen (that means a layout that features two parallel walls with a walkway between them for those of you who live in Valley Center), it's functional and efficient, but being on the smaller side, it's limited in counter and cabinet space.
I love to cook and as a result of that passion I've got just a 'few' kitchen gadgets and a collection of pots, pans and various baking dishes. With counter space at a premium I can't keep some of my small kitchen appliances like a blender or rice cooker out on the countertop ready to use. With limited cabinet space, well, that means some of my kitchen equipment has to be stored in another room.
I thought shopping for small kitchen appliance storage might present a bit of a challenge. I needed a shelf unit, cart or cabinet of some sort that is sturdy enough to handle some small appliance weight, can be staged just outside the kitchen for easy appliance retrieval, looks decent and doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. I looked online on Amazon, then checked out the Walmart website and kind of unexpectedly, found what I needed. My online search was over!
Enter the HSS 3-Shelf Stackable Freestanding Wire Shelves.
Perfect for my galley kitchen, this inexpensive but durable wire shelving unit is a perfect fit just outside the galley entry from the dining room. The shelves are adjustable and can hold up to 250 pounds each. Evenly distributed, the unit can handle up to 750 pounds. I can also upgrade the unit if needed, by purchasing pole connectors to stack another 3-shelf unit on top for a total of six shelves.
The unit was easy to assemble, no tools required. It's commercial grade steel construction, the feet are adjustable for uneven floors and the black finish looks good with just about any decor.
Costing me $22.96 at Walmart, I'm giving the HSS 3-Shelf Stackable Freestanding Wire Shelves 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's sturdy, can handle a good amount of weight (Cuisinart Appliances aren't light) and it looks good. It's worthy of a repeat buy and I'm probably going to need another one!
