The Best Lid Holder in the United Kingdom: Our Choices

Buying and evaluation criteria for lid holders

Nowadays, there are countless types of lid holders, all with advantages and disadvantages. To help you decide, we have compiled the following criteria for you:

You should definitely consider these criteria to find a lid holder that meets your wishes and needs. Of course, it should also match your kitchen.


Although lid holders mainly fulfil a functional role, they are available in different shapes. When choosing, you should therefore make sure that the holder meets your taste and fits in with the concept of your kitchen. There are very plain and simple designs as well as eye-catching pieces in a modern or vintage style. This criterion is especially relevant if you choose a holder that will always be visible. After all, it should not disturb the overall appearance of your kitchen.


When choosing a lid holder, you should also make sure that the product is easy to handle and functions properly. Of course, several factors play a role: the space, the size, the material. Are the compartments big enough for your lids? Will your drawer or kitchen cupboard still close properly? With a wall-mounted holder, you should also pay attention to how much weight it can support and that the lids are placed securely so that you don't have to worry about accidents. You should also be concerned about the durability of the product. Plastic brackets are less stable but less expensive, while stainless steel and wood can be used for years.


Lid holders come in many sizes. Therefore, it is very important that you measure your kitchen (walls, drawers and cupboards) before buying. Only then should you decide on a particular holder. Of course, the size of the kitchen and the available storage space are also decisive. If there is only a little of it, a wall bracket can be very advantageous and space-saving. If, on the other hand, your kitchen is so big that you don't know what to fill your drawers and cupboards with, a lid holder makes more sense.

Number of compartments

Before buying, you should think about how big you want your lid holder to be. After all, you want to be able to store all your lids without wasting space by choosing a holder that is too big. Extendable holders are also interesting because you can easily add or remove compartments as your kitchen equipment changes.
