   This Hidden kitchen Lid Aid  is based on Jayefuu's excellent  two lid holster instructable.

   I had to make very quickly ( while my wife went dog walking with a friend ) and still be
   completely removable in case of here unappreciative response

   While I am not moving out soon, if ever.     
   I have a wonderful wife  and It is she,
   who will decide  IF this pan lid hanger is a good idea for her kitchen.

Fun :

 For me it is the fun and simplicity of making this lid cradle hanger
 which was done faster then the time spent to take pictures documenting it.

Step 1: Step 1: Material and Tools

Picture of Step 1:  Material and Tools
  • a screwdriver
  • a pair of small pliers
  • a solid metal block
  • an old rotary tool grinder
  • a metal cutting disc

  • a single length of 3/32" iron welding rod

Now all I need is the ability to do this with 30 lids and only 8 cabinate doors :-)

See what Jayefuu did with THREE per door !!
Goodhart iceng2 years ago
hmmm, I'd need bigger doors. :-)
iceng (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
Or smaller pot lids ;-D

I can tell you from experience that this works great. My mom did this to her cabinents 50 years ago.

Excellent upgrade Alex! I went straight to my new kitchen to see if this would work in there but my door handles and hinges aren't on the same level :(
iceng (author)  Jayefuu2 years ago
Thanks for the compliment

That 3/32" Rod is stiff enough to work with different levels of attachments.

And if you feel you need a more robust Rod they are available in 4/32 ==> 1/8" diameter !

Now i am ashamed that didnt come to mind earlier. SURE! It is sooo logic and simple nobody seemed to think about it.
Thats how an 'ible should be: Simple, genious, practical!
Thanks a lot!
Gathering materials for that next week.

Thanks for the very nice comment.

That was my very thinking when I saw Jayefuu's excellent version of trebuchet's pot lid  organizer.

My add was no change to the attachment using the only available hardware..

This is pure genius, iceng... and practical, too. I'll definitely incorporate this idea in my new kitchen. Thank you!!!

Thanks greatly for the very nice comments.
I bet there is a welding shop near you, even in Baja.
A hanger would also work but might rust  with time.
bajablue iceng2 years ago
Hubby has a welder, so I'm assuming he has the rods to work with it. I think we're all good!!!
