We'd all love to have those sprawling counters you see on HGTV, but many of us have to make do with limited kitchen surface area. Appliances often take up the bulk of the space, leaving us a teeny area for meal prep. Throw some cooking gizmos into the mix, and you've got one cluttered-looking room. But, thanks to TikTok, we've found a super-simple solution to instantly increase your storage: the StoveShelf. It's magnetic, meaning no complicated assembly, and it keeps spices, condiments and more within arm's reach while you cook. It's practical storage that also makes your kitchen pretty — win win.
It's easy to spend way too much time mindlessly scrolling through TikTok, but we love the trusty ol' app when it comes to discovering new finds — especially clever problem solvers like the StoveShelf. Anyone who's short on space knows you have to get creative and use every square inch you can. Well, the makers of this handy ledge had the brilliant idea of using the top of your range, which not only increases storage but also gives you easy access to your most-reached-for ingredients and tools.
Constructed of durable, rust-resistant stainless steel, this kitchen storage lifesaver has magnets on the bottom so you can just — boop! — stick it right onto the top of your stove without dealing with nails, drills or any of that pesky nonsense. It fits most flat or curved stoves and comes in 20-, 24- and 30-inch sizes. Because the magnets are adjustable, the shelf can be adapted to your specific range. You can also choose from black, white or stainless steel, and the StoveShelf will blend in with your range seamlessly.
If your spices practically spill out of your cabinets, you can keep a few of your go-tos on top of your stove to save room and make cooking more convenient. The StoveShelf is also great for holding small kitchen tools, like a mortar and pestle, kitchen shears, timers — you name it. Plus, there's a back to keep things from falling in between your stove and the wall, because we know anything that ends up back there is never coming out.
One important note: If you're using the StoveShelf to hold spices or oils, make sure they're products you go through quickly, as the heat can affect their flavor and longevity.
More than 15,000 Amazon customers were so impressed with the StoveShelf, they gave it a perfect five-star rating:
"What a lifesaver!" exclaimed one rave reviewer. "I got sick and tired of things falling behind my stove because there was a gap between it and the wall behind. This is the perfect size, holds quite a bit, sturdy and literally required ZERO assembly! Highly recommend!"
"Beautiful and convenient," wrote a happy shopper. "The seasonings and oils I use most often are now at my fingertips. No more fumbling in a cabinet! AND it looks like it’s part of the stove and not an add-on!"
"Such a fab space-saver," said another. "We have a super small kitchen with limited counter space and this simple solution helped save a huge spot for us, freeing it up as workspace. Highly recommend!"
"We use this to place spices on," wrote a final reviewer. "I only wish it had little sides on the ends to prevent things from potentially falling off. We use two magnetic chip clips, one on each end, to help with that. We've had no problems and it is a nice convenience to have cooking spices handy when we want them."
Another handy space-saver? The Cabinet Caddy!
"We bought five of these to organize our mess of spices and I have got to say, I am impressed!" gushed one repeat buyer. "They very conveniently slide out and rotate to easily view and access every single jar. Very well constructed ... not flimsy at all. They are worth every penny!"
