We have many different types of cutlery inserts that will help to keep your cutlery neat and tidy and easily accessible that fit perfectly into our kitchen unit drawers. Our cutlery inserts can hold your traditional knives, forks and spoons or we have some available especially designed to hold your sharp cutting knife collection.
What size cutlery inserts are available?
Our cutlery inserts come in a few different sizes, as shown below. All measurements are for the width of the drawer that they will be place into.
- 400mm wide
- 500mm wide
- 600mm wide
- 800mm wide
- 900mm wide
- 1000mm wide
We also have some wooden cutlery inserts that are expandable to accommodate drawers from 450mm wide right up to 1000mm. One such example is shown below.
What are the cutlery inserts made from?
Our cutlery inserts are made from plastic or wood (beech).
How much do cutlery inserts cost?
If you’re after a basic cutlery insert then we have some plastic inserts available from just £5. If you want something a little more refined then we have many wooden inserts to choose from.
A full list of cutlery inserts available can be seen here.
What are the 2 wooden strips for?
Some of our wooden cutlery trays are supplied with 2 wooden strips, as shown in the image below. These wooden strips, slide into the 2 sides of the cutlery tray, to bridge any gap between the cutlery tray and the end of the drawer. As the drawers are narrower at the bottom than the top the cutlery tray itself can only be made to fit in the smallest part of the drawer.

I have 900mm pan drawers with internal drawer (P2ID1-9).
Which cutlery inserts would fit the internal drawer?
Hi Mandy, any of the 900mm wide inserts on this page will be fine.
Hello, I am looking to order 900 wide drawers and am planning which insert to get to go with these. I already have a knife block that measures 40cm L x 17.5cm W x 6cm D. Could you advise what I could get to work with this? Is it a similar size to your knife block insert? Many thanks
Hi Joanna, a cutlery tray could be used here.
Am having problems fitting a cutlery tray – how do I get a 400mm tray into a 400mm drawer – do I take the sides of the drawer off?
Hi Susan, the plastic cutlery inserts that we provide for a 400mm wide unit, measure 314mm x 422mm. These should slot straight into your unit without a problem and give a nice snug fit- https://www.diy-kitchens.com/accessories/cutlery-inserts/default.asp/wp88384/
Im sorry I have been through all this so many times with your support people. I originally ordered this
400mm Clear Lacquered Oak Cutlery Insert
It does not look like the one in the picture and is too small for my drawers. I then send a picture of the drawer with dimensions and the very helpful young woman has sent me one which looks like the one in the pic, measures 400 at the top 385 at bottom, and would fit perfectly in my drawer if it had thinner sides or no sides.
The drawer measures 400mm width including the sides, the space, without including the drawer sides, at the top of the drawer measures 365mm and at the bottom 340. 314 is too small.
Hi Susan, I would recommend contacting our aftersales team with your question on 01977 608 418 to get a resolution to this issue, as I have not heard of our cutlery inserts not fitting properly before.
What depth of drawer do they fit – wondering about the slimline units of 300 and 460 deep?
Hi Penny, the cutlery trays are not designed to fit into the slimline units, they are designed specifically for the 560mm deep units. So unfortunately, we do not supply the cutlery inserts to suit the 300mm and 460mm deep units.
