Cabinet-Sized elfa Mesh Drawer Solution
Cabinet-Sized elfa Mesh Drawer set
I am a 76 year old mechanical engineer, that said, I always look at the design, packaging, instructions, ingenuity and ease of assembling of the products I purchase.
This drawer set meets all my high ratings without a doubt. The instruction are simple, just a clear isometric drawing showing how the few parts go together with only ONE tool: a rubber mallet (hammer). After assembling the unit it is extremely rigid, I was surprised. The drawers slit in very easy and move very good in and out. The drawer guides have little holes at each end of the sliders so one can put in a small nail or screw to act as a stop when the drawers are all the way pushed in.
The finish is very good, looks like a powder coated finish, it is hard and durable. The choice of materials is excellent as well, making it a strong and light assembly. My wife is delighted with it after I installed it under the sink in the galley of our yacht.
Thank you Container Store for selling good merchandise for a reasonable price.

Great product, but not easy to put together
While I have had very good experience with elfa products (we installed a huge closet system and love it), I was surprised at how difficult this little set of drawers was to put together. The instructions show to use a rubber mallet, and you NEED a rubber mallet (had to go buy one). A regular hammer won't do. Even though I am in good shape and regularly lift weights, I finally had to ask for my husband's help to pound the legs into the bracket, while I held the pieces. It's a great piece and I know it will resolve my cluttered cabinet, but you're going to need a lot of muscle.

Well worth the money!
We bought three of these sets - two for a kitchen cabinet, and one for the bathroom. Our kitchen cabinet had a large wasted space where things used to pile up and get lost. Now we have two sets of drawers side by side, and everything is organized and easy to find and reach. In the bathroom, we put one set in the towel closet, and now all our medications, hair products and equipment, shaving, and teeth cleaning supplies are neat and organized. I love these drawers, and will purchase more for my pantry. Not too hard to put together - once we got the first one assembled, the others were quick and easy. Really well worth the cost!
