This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Whether you own an extensive set of heirloom silverware or a few utensils to serve yourself, it’s always a good idea to keep them neat and tidy in a flatware organizer, rather than rolling around loose in a drawer. Here you’ll find selections in a variety of designs and sizes to suit just about any storage need, with many boasting additional compartments for other kitchen tools, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

When people think about organizers for their flatware, oftentimes the classic silverware tray springs to mind. While we were sure to include a handful of that popular iteration, including expandable choices, we also felt this list would benefit from other styles of organizers, including chests like the Reed & Barton Adams, drawer liners such as the Hagerty 19111, and countertop options like the Towle Living 3-Piece. You'll also find clever, unorthodox storage solutions in the Joseph Joseph Gray and KMN Home Customizable.
There are models on this list that are specially designed to store, organize, and care for expensive or cherished cutlery sets as well as workhorse options that keep things tidy in a kitchen drawer. Our priorities across the board included thoughtful designs and high-quality materials, and we factored in how good these units look and how well they can fit into various design schemes. After that, we wanted to ensure there was a reliable and attractive option here for the budget-conscious and favored products that aren't a hassle to clean and maintain.
Our #2 pick, the Oxo Good Grips White, strikes an impressive balance between form and function, combining a generous capacity with a relatively compact design that will serve large families well. For those who hate the idea of plastic getting grimy, the Honey-Can-Do Utility is an excellent stainless steel substitute that doesn't allow debris to build up and is exceedingly easy to rinse clean.
Grapevine Flatware Caddy Handmade by expert artisans, the Grapevine Flatware Caddy is a sophisticated selection from Arthur Court that boasts impressive detail inspired by nature.
