    Smile Advice on pull-out kitchen storage?


    Hi, new to the Forum and hoping for some feedback...
    We have an old QLDer, and are considering a new kitchen. Does anyone have any experience of the newish style pantry storage. Its a narrow door that just pulls out with a single handle and is fitted with slide-out chrome shelves accessible from both sides. I love the idea, and it seems like a great option, but I wonder how well the mechanism holds up etc.
    I would appreciate any opinions etc!

    Thanks.

    Yep have two the shelf spacing is adjustable but leaves something to be desired , make sure you have good axces to both sides when its pulled out , otherwise top units

    The older style of these slide-out pantries, where all the shelves move everytime you open it, are a right PITA. The contents get real heavy and you are moving them all every time.

    The newer style where only the top and bottom drawer/shelf is attached to the fascia, and all the other drawers are on separate runners, are far better. You are moving the weight of only two drawers each time you open it.

    Spend 5 minutes in a kitchen display centre and the difference will be obvious.

    Cheers

    I've just bought an upside down fridge were the two bottom draws pull out.
    The best fridge I've ever owned, you can pack so much into them instead of everything
    falling off the shelf.

    If I was planning a new kitchen I would definitely look at pullout draws.
