As Seen On TV – The Swivel Store

I am an As Seen on TV junkie, but managed to steer clear of the Swivel Store – a trademark of Merchant Media LLC. I was intrigued with the concept of swiveling organizer, but didn’t take the plunge and buy it.

Until now.

The Swivel Store is described as a space-saving cabinet organizer. The TV commercials for the product stress its use as a spice rack, which appealed to me. I have a lot of spices and hate having to claw my way through to the spice I need. The fact that it only takes up four inches of space was an added bonus. So, while walking through a major retail chain’s As Seen On TV aisle I gave in and purchased the Swivel Store for a little under $20 before taxes.

I was very excited to use the organizer until I pulled it out of the box. While, the width is four inches, the height and depth is 11. The shelves in my cabinets are 9 inches apart.

Darn.

I considered readjusting the shelving so the Swivel Store would fit, but thought that was too much work for a product claiming no assembly required. Note: There is no actual assembly required for the Swivel Store. I wondered how in the world I missed the dimensions. After a review of the packaging, I figured it out; the dimensions are not on the box. They are in the included instructions – number 2 under “To Install”. I also see the dimensions are on the product’s website. Normally, I check out the website. This time I didn’t, much to my regret.

But you can’t keep a good gal down.

Since it wouldn’t fit in my cabinet, I placed it on the top shelf of my pantry. The Swivel Store works as advertised. It is a functional and neat product. My spices are organized and available with a swing of the shelving instead of an extended search on my part. It would be handy to have the now-organized spices in the cabinet closest to my stove rather than in a pantry several feet. Although I feel the dimensions should definitely be on the packaging, I assume some responsibility for not doing proper research before purchasing.

All in all, I am pleased with the Swivel Store and recommend it. Just measure your shelf spacing first.

  1. I also found out it was too tall for my shelves which are not ajustable, I found another area to use it.My need is for it to be a half inch wider.Unless you buy the name brand spice (I don’t) most of my spice jars are wide.If thay can make it wider,I would purchase some more,maybe to use as gifts. Thank you,

  2. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I would buy more, too, if the dimensions were just slightly different….
