Best Vertical Plate Holders

It doesn’t always make sense to stack plates on top of one another in your kitchen cabinet. You might have a mismatched set that doesn't allow for tidy stacking, or the dimensions of your cabinets may not compensate for larger dinner plates alongside your bowls and other vessels. Perhaps your plates are so beautiful, you simply want to keep them on display, not hidden away inside a cabinet. Vertical plate holders do more than give you a way to store and organize the very surfaces you eat your daily meals on. They provide unique display pieces and even ways to allow your plates to dry after a hand washing or pulling from the dishwasher. Regardless of your preference, vertical plate holders give you options. So, we tested a few and deemed what we consider to be some of the best vertical plate holder options available today.

Jumbl Dinner Plate Cradle

Convenient Upright Plate Cradle

Made of lightweight polypropylene (plastic) in a rounded, basin-like cradle, this simply designed organizer from Jumbl offers a secure and convenient way to dry and store up to six standard dinner plates.

What We Liked

Stacking and storing round plates in regular squared-off cabinets wastes a lot of space. This cradle aims to take advantage of those overlooked nooks and crannies to give you more room for other cabinet storage needs. The base of the cradle is squared-off to tuck back into cabinet corners, while the cradle itself is rounded to neatly hug your round dinner or salad plates and keep them upright. It can be used beside the sink as a drying rack, on the countertop for display, or conveniently tucked away inside your cabinets. Buy it here.
