a tidy cupboard now”
I have just purchased several items to tidy up my kitchen cupboards, all of which I like. However, I would like to make a comment about the corner plate rack. Because it doesn't have bars across the bottom level, and the plates just rest in the centre space, I feel it is a little unstable with the weight on the middle and top levels. This is more noticeable if the items on these upper shelves are not pushed to the back corner. Perhaps it could be updated to have a few bars across the bottom level.

Good but not as good”
This product does what you expect, however I have an older one I purchased from Lakeland, which is far strudier and a better design to my mind. If you have an older one, please note this one is not as good.

Ordered in combination with the "Adaptashelf" to sort out some very untidy kitchen worktops - these corner shelves are brilliant and not just for plates - I have one next to the sink and it is great for organising bottles of soap &c, and am also using one for storing spices and onions!!

I have several of theses, some for plates and other china but they are also good for my deep corner cupboards, storing baking materials. All the smaller tubs & plastic boxes rest on top in full view, with heavier packs lower down, and I have regained so much space. Excellent service, too, an item that arrived slightly damaged was replaced immediately.

another leaning tower”
Sorry, but another leaning tower here! My first ever disappointment from Lakeland though, I'm really surprised by how few plates it took to make this wobble. I tried various ways of stacking to no avail. My dinner set is not even a chunky heavy type either. Returning today and will look at options instore.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the plate rack hasn't been suitable for you.
I bought 2 of these for our new kitchen to replace similar ones that we have had for years. Unfortunately this product is too big for a standard depth wall cupboard. I would suggest customers confirm the internal dimensions of their cupboards to avoid disappointment.

Too big for a standard cupboard!”
I bought several of these when Lakeland first brought them out, and they were so useful. Needing another one, I popped into my local Lakeland store and picked one up. As always, several other things crept into my basket... I blame aliens :) Unfortunately, the new design plate racks have changed, and are now just too big for a standard above-counter kitchen cabinet. Can't shut the door! Fortunately I bought two sparkly window bugs at the same time, so my day wasn't ruined :)

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the current corner plate rack will not fit your cupboards and will be in touch shortly to help.
The shelf is perfect for stacking my large square plates which don't fit on my old rack. it's strong enough to hold 5 on each shelf (maybe more, but that's how many I can get in each).

Why would you NOT have one?!”
by Lesley K
After 20 years it's time to replace my corner plate rack (the white plastic covering looks tired). Thankfully you still sell them - don't ever stop. Simple idea - but makes so much difference. Don't think you need one? - you do. Trust me.

I was eagerly awaiting this plate rack to try and tidy up our cupboard. However, as soon as I loaded the plates on the rack started to tilt forwards, even with just a few plates on the top and middle shelf. We are going to have to screw it to the cupboard to prevent the plates sliding off - one way to tidy the cupboards I suppose!! What a disappointment.

A tall cupboard is now not a hazard with a massive pile of plates now divided into three. Great product.

not what I expected”
by Mrs Bishop
These plate racks are not quite as sturdy as they might seem. They are large and could accommodate 6-8 dinner plates on the first and middle layer and desert or tea plates on the top, however if you try to load them like this they are in danger of toppling forward. In my opinion they would be safer taking four plates on each layer-but even then they are quite "springy" and wobbly and I would not trust them with my best china. Why are they so large then? I am disappointed because I wanted to have these out on my worktop to accommodate about twelve place settings (which is why I bought two)

I am delighted with this shelf - it comes as one sturdy piece, no making involved and fits absolutley spot-on perfectly in my kichen cuboard. I am ordering more because the space it has created is so good. I can imagine it being useful in so many different ways.

The plate rack does exactly what you expect it to - no assembly needed, seems sturdy enough for a stack of plates, makes everything more accessible.
