Step 26!AnnaI too had misalignment problem until I saw review that called attention to Step 26. The right side glide attaches using BOTTOM row of holes. I know Ikea does like words, but one arrow saying bottom would have made it all better. Works fine, agree with others to put in sides.
TerribleMeghanIf I could give no stars I would, this cabinet doesn’t have 4 glides it has two offset and the cabinet doesn’t square. We moved both glides to the upper position and it works okay. But I’d rather it be an actual functional cabinet instead of something I’m now scared to put in anything with weight.
Piece of CrapRobertThis is a piece of crap, don't buy it. To make it work, you have to buy another drawer and use the 2 slides that come with the new drawer and throw out the drawer, so it really costs $140. Ikea only put 2 slides on it and the design is flawed. If you put spices in the drawers, it will tip sideways and jam. If I could give it a zero I would. Ikea doesn't sell the slides separately so you can just buy 2 more.
Not the best use of spaceKristinaIKEA can you please make an option to turn the 12”w base cabinet into a pull out trash cabinet with trash can included? Would be such a better use of the space. Honestly I’m not sure what people store in this thing.
AwesomeKennethVery nice design and good quality
Handy for condiments and oilsJocelynWhen installed adjacent to a cooking range, it's handy for oils, bottles of vinegar, and cooking utensils.
do not recommendChristinavery difficult to make and holds a limited amount of things. lots of wasted space between the 2 drawers. def better off with shelves and a regular door.
Works for usElizabethI wanted a pull out drawer for a tall trash can. I removed the top drawer, only keeping the bottom. It has been working perfectly for the past few years. The trash can fits and I have room to add a box of trash bags.
Hate this cabinetBettyOf all the kitchen cabinets I’ve purchased from Ikea, I hate this one. It is useless. I’ve tried using it in so many different ways, nonetheless it is a pain. I thought it would be a great cookie sheet/ cutting board cabinet, nope. The sheets and boards lean out of the cabinet ever so slightly so that they bang against the cabinet when you try to slide the door close. If it was only 15 inches instead of 12 inches OR if IKEA would read theses reviews they would figure out that their customers are frustrated with this cabinet! Make some damn accessories/ upgrade for this cabinet!
Love itDianaIf properly installed, it is great! Wish they’d make for 15 inch cabinets
Possible Helpful InstructionRonI have three of these and finally figured out the reason I was having issues was that I put it together incorrectly. I was using the same holes on both of the sliders/rails. It turns out (see instruction step 26) that the slide for the right side uses the lower set of holes instead of the upper set of holes used by the left slide. This fixed all of my issues and made everything align and work so much better. Hopefully this will help someone else too.
The worst thing I’ve ever bought from IkeaVerified BuyerThere are only two drawer tracks. The thing does not balance and is impossible to get right. Just don’t.
Wasted SpaceMariMiamiI ended up returning the pull out system and put in the shelves. Actually have 3 levels, better use of the space. Would rather see either wire baskets or individual draws for this unit. Unfortunately the only option you have is either shelves or pull out system.
Okay, but would prefer more and adjustable shelvesAllenIkea, why don't you allow customers to have the same Maximera drawer options for the 12 cabinet that you have for all others? This is a poor substitute because I'm stuck with the drawer sizes and positions included, and it's harder to use the lower drawer/shelf with the upper one in the way! The components of these are the same as all other Maximera pullout shelves, just give us more sliders and an interior front and we'll be happy!!
Needs taller sidesVerified BuyerThe larger drawer does not have tall sides, so items constantly fall out when we open the drawer. Please design an aftermarket snap in side panel IKEA!!
great features!KeytyI bought two months ago and I'm very happy that I did, my kitchen looks great and every space is used
Great featureVerified BuyerThese are a great feature for storage of larger kitchenware items
