simplehumanÂ® 20" Pull-Out Cabinet Organizer
like it but it didn't work for me
I purchased this product over one by another manufacturer because it had a solid bottom rather than open mesh. I was hoping to use it to make storing and retrieving items from a blind base corner cabinet easier. And it would have worked except for the fact that pulling items up over the side rail in the limited headspace wasn't possible. I debated cutting off one set of the side rails but opted not do. Had I wanted to use it simply for deep cabinets, or to pull out in a more traditional straight forward and back situation, I would have kept the organizer.

Does just what it is supposed to. Glide is strong and glides smoothly, you can tell it is well made. Easy to install as well.

Great Addition to Your Kitchen!
I purchased these pull-out shelves on a recent trip to Chicago. I installed two in the same lower cabinet. The top one was a little bit of a challenge to install, since I had to add supports for the front screws to go into, but it was manageable overall. I would say that the whole installation process probably took about an hour. I agree with another reviewer that the weight capacity can be an issue. I have glass/ceramic items on my shelves, which have a lot of weight to them. I wish that the shelves felt more capable of holding the weight. I have tried to balance them the best I can by putting some heavy and some light items (like slicers/choppers, graters, and measuring cups) on each shelf. The drawers hold their own when extended, even with the weight, but still seem a little flimsy. Another downside is that you don't get to maximize the full width of your cupboard, because of the shelf sides and needing to be able to keep it clear to pull-out. I complemented my pull-out shelves with a door lid holder. Just make sure to install the pull-out shelves back far enough to allow room in front for lids. In the end, they look great and my partner has commented on how wonderful and helpful they are. Definitely makes using all of the items in your cupboard easier.

Great product - easy to install
It is very easy to install, the glides are very smooth and I like the tray in the bottom. If I could make an improvement I would say that the wire for the basket is too thin so it would not be good to use in a kitchen.
