As Kitchen Organization Becomes a Top Priority for Homeowners, an Innovative New Product Hits the Marketplace

PANTREE™ Cookware Organizer -- Revolutionizing Kitchen Organization

COOPER CITY, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- Vertical Storage Solutions, a Cooper City-based company that specializes in solving common kitchen problems for consumers, is launching PANTREE™, an innovative cookware organizer for base kitchen cabinets.

PANTREE™, a unique cookware organizer that is the first of its kind, uses the vertical space of base kitchen cabinets to expertly organize pots, pans and lids. PANTREE™ solves a huge problem that kitchen owners face on how to store and organize pots, pans and lids and keep them that way. Different from other cookware organizers, PANTREE™ solves the problem where it exists, in the base cabinet, and uses the vertical space that is typically left vacant. PANTREE™ turns those disastrous cabinets into an efficient system for storing and using cookware.

PANTREE™ is made out of a high density, ABS plastic, textured slip resistant design. It holds up to 14 pieces of cookware including 4 lids and fits into standard base cabinets, even those with a 1/2 recessed shelf. It can save up to 300% in cabinet space without stacking. PANTREE™ is assembled in seconds with 4 easy snap together steps.

"PANTREE™ has been in the works for almost 20 years and to finally be able to make it available to consumers is a thrill. I always knew PANTREE™ was a good idea but to get the kind of confirmation we have gotten from the marketplace and see the excitement it is generating is a huge accomplishment for me and my family. I look forward to the day when every kitchen owner has a PANTREE™," says Elliot Anker, President and inventor of PANTREE™.

PANTREE™ will be available through TV Shopping Channels such as QVC, Catalogers and direct to consumers via its website

PANTREE™ retails for $24.95 plus 7.95 S&H. Now through December 31, 2006, a special offer is available for consumers to purchase PANTREE™ for $19.95 plus S&H

Vertical Storage Solutions, based in Cooper City, Florida, is the parent company of PANTREE™ and VSS develops vertical space saving organizers that solve problems where the problems exist. The PANTREE™ for cookware is the first of many products that VSS is launching to revolutionize kitchen organization. Elliot Anker is the President of VSS and the inventor of PANTREE™. During his career, Elliot served as a buyer of basic housewares for Burdines of Florida, a Federated Store. This included kitchenware, organizers and gadgets. He was later appointed to a committee to buy Cookware for all Federated Stores. In addition, he founded and ran a Sales Rep Business called The Houseworks Group which specialized in housewares and cookware manufacturing lines exclusively for the State of Florida. This experience is where the inspiration to use vertical storage to capitalize on air space began. Twenty years later, with the launch of PANTREE™, his dream is finally a reality.
