Has anyone found a silverware tray that fits nicely into the drawers of the Elite II? Since those drawers measure 16.6 inches wide by 10 inches deep and 3 inches tall, they are not a "standard" size kitchen drawer.

You might try The Container Store. If you search on "cutlery tray" you will find a "Small Mesh Cutlery Tray". It measures 12-7/8"W, 9-3/8"D, 2-1/8"H. See link below.

I do not own one, but I may buy it when the time comes. Like you say, the space is not "standard"!

Another option from Amazon Prime.

This is what I am using.

I decided the cutlery tray took up too much space in the drawers. We only have four place settings and those fit nicely in the rectangular tray of this set. Also I got a couple of bigger trays to hold knives and cooking utensils.

Thanks, but I’d already looked at each and every one of those on Amazon. I am hoping to find something that fits a bit better than any of the sizes that are listed there. If I can’t find something I’ll be reduced to making something.
Could I bother you to take a picture? There are several way to mix and match, but without taxing my brain too much I didn’t see a combination of bins that would result in a nice tight fit.
p.s. how’s the trip doing?

Yes, we will be going out to load somethings today or tomorrow and I can take photos. I have some bins to use for clothes so will take photos of those too.

here is what my silverware drawer looks likeJanuary 15, 2016 at 2:54 pm #20159
Thanks for the picture – of the silverware, remote control, and wine stuff drawers. Nice to see someone who has their priorities right with the wine stuff.
I thought that you two were supposed to hit the road yesterday?

Funny…We are hoping to leave town tomorrow….head west to CO to see our kids (both moved from here to CO in the last few months and now conveniently live 15 miles apart). Then south to NM and AZ. Our route depends on who is home and weather.

I found a Linus Acrylic Expandable cutlery tray at Bed Bath and Beyond that adjusts to the width of the drawer:

Thanks for looking for me – I’ve been a bit busy since I took delivery of Twist back in mid-February so I have not had a chance to look at this.

I know this is an old thread but no point starting a new one –
I found that the OXO drawer organizers are pretty much a perfect fit for the Oliver drawers. The large ones are 16.5″ wide and can be expanded to fit the depth perfectly, and their silverware tray at 15.5″ is only an inch smaller in width than the drawer and the depth at 9.75″ just a smidge shorter than the smaller top drawer. It will expand in depth also, but that extra quarter inch isn’t going to be very useful. Like other OXO stuff, they’re a bit more expensive than other options, but they’re good quality and I like that they will fit just right and that the dividers can be customized.
On a related note, does anyone else wish that Oliver would put the deeper drawers on the bottom? That’s the usual arrangement and I typically find that the larger stuff is most often the least used. I’m thinking that I may change mine around after delivery.

The Ed half of our team found these stick on brackets and used 1/4 inch wood for the dividers. Customizable and pretty easy. The can be purshased here http://www.leevalley.com/us/hardware/page.aspx?p=74182&cat=3,43722,43743
