Cheap feelVerified ReviewerCheap feed to the legs and can’t move cupboard in place without these falling out. Feels less sturdy than the old model. Not had issues now it is in place but would have been good if maybe they were screwed in so the unit can be moved without them falling out or feeling like they would break.3
HardwareVerified ReviewerGood value5

BewareVerified ReviewerThe guidelines told me to buy these but they were unfit for purpose so I had to re-order the metal ones. They work a treat1
Worst example in yearsVerified ReviewerProbably the worst /unstable / non/robust feet I’ve ever used in 25 years The pack instructions say for 2 people to lift into place/ somewhat impossible if installing as replacements under and existing worktop Come On Ikea get real1
Go for the metal ones!Verified ReviewerThese were such a pain to install. They kept falling off when trying to get cabinets in place. Really flimsy too. Wish I had gone for the metal ones!1
Metod LegsVerified Reviewerthese legs are flimsy and not suitable to support the housing unit, I haven't had the oven installed yet because two of the legs came off as I tried to move the unit and I don't trust them now as one is cracked1
Great design but weak and flimsyVerified ReviewerAs in the title great design if they were only made of stronger stuff. Legs fell out when moving cabinets into position and 2 broke while moving units into position!!!2
Needs modifiedVerified ReviewerHad to travel to Ikea 3 times to replace broken legs Much to flimsy to hold weight of Cabinet,Oven Micro, Drawers,Pots etc (easy broken)2
So weak productVerified ReviewerSo weak support for large items. There is any other option we can replace it with this?1
Weak supportsVerified ReviewerThese support legs are weak an two of them broke easily. Very poor quality. Replaced them with chrome supports....2
method legVerified Reviewerassembly easy would be better if leg plate fitted more tightly into underside of base cabinet. leg plate with leg sometimes came out when positioning cabinet3
Not good for spanning adjacent cabinetsVerified ReviewerIf I were you, I would use 4 feet per cabinet. Yes, they are designed so that adjacent cabinets can sit on 1 set of legs, but in my experience, this does not feel strong enough. It's also to do with the way they sit and locate in the holes. These are only plastic and I just don't think they are up to that job. Just about OK with the aforementioned usage.3
easy to fit but looseVerified Reviewervery easy to fit but sometimes can be loose and fall when moving cabinet to its place so just need to be moved carefully. good value for money.4
A bad designVerified ReviewerThe feet can not be secured to the cabinet base and fall out when you manouver the cabinet into place. I was forced to drill my own hole and use a screw to secure the feet.1
Our take on plastic
Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs.
There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Our ambition is to help as many as possible to have a kitchen they'd love to be in. We started sketching.
“When we created METOD, it was our biggest ever kitchen change, so it's fair to say we were very keen to get it right,” says technician Klas-Ola Nilsson.
Research from around the world
So, what would people’s dream kitchen be like? We surveyed thousands of people, visited hundreds of homes and worked with food industry professionals.
“We found if there's one thing in common with kitchens around the world it's that they're different.” Klas-Ola says. “For as many people who dream of an open space kitchen, there are people with a small space, or a space that cannot be changed that much.”
From research to result
One element became blindingly important.
“We realized we needed a kitchen system that could adapt to different sized spaces in a way that hadn't been done before,” Klas-Ola says. “So, we developed cabinets that could fit almost anywhere.”
Different sizes can be mixed to best fit the room and they'll still fit together – without odd ends. The clever inside can be personalized to support your kitchen needs and activities, too.
Ready for the future
An adaptable kitchen fits better with how you like to cook, both now and in the future. Whether you start craving a more professional kitchen, or just want to start using it for more activities, we would love METOD to help out.
“There's nothing to say that METOD is set and fixed now,” Klas-Ola says. “People’s ideas on what a dream kitchen should do is always evolving. To meet future needs, METOD will evolve, too.”
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted.
Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material.
Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse.
PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil.
PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
Building blocks for the kitchen
METOD frames provide the base for your new kitchen. Choose between base cabinets, wall cabinets and high cabinets in many different widths. Wall cabinets and high cabinets also come in different heights. If you want to use a corner, choose a corner base cabinet with a carousel that makes it easy to reach what's inside. There are even special frames for a built-in single or double oven. Perfect if you want to have the oven at a comfortable working height. Complement with practical UTRUSTA and VARIERA interior fittings.
