It’s helpful for you to know how we ended up with these top three picks. Our testing categories included storage space, versatility, and durability. We believe these are the three main components any good pantry organizer bin should have, based on how most people use them. Here’s how we evaluated each category:
Storage Space: This was a tricky category, because everyone has varying sizes of pantries in their home. However, after evaluating so many types of bins, it became clear to us what the ideal size should be. You don’t want something as large as a laundry basket, but you also don’t want something so small that you can’t fit a lot of items in it.
Versatility: Some pantries are designed in a way where they don’t have a lot of depth, but they are tall. Organizer bins with the ability to stack also graded highly with our scoring system, simply because they provide you with options. Even if you don’t envision stackable bins in your pantry now, having the option to do so later on, if you change your mind, is nice.
Durability: The durability of your pantry organizer bins is also a big consideration. You want them to be strong enough to hold canned goods and other items without breaking or cracking when you move them around. You’ll be using your bins frequently once you buy them, so we scored the durability factor very highly.
