push openers are workhorsesHaroldI have 2 of these installed for trash and recycling drawers for 8+ years. They get used dozens of times a day and still work like new. On the other hand, the Blumotion (soft close) feature on the Blum drawer runners wears out and I am ready to put the third set of runners in, but the Push Openers are still working great! When we moved into our house, to throw something in the trash, you had to fully open two cabinet doors, grab the trash bin to pull out all four trash buckets on a large drawer and then push the drawer in and close both doors. We would wind up making a pile of trash on the counter because it was a hassle to throw anything away, plus you had to touch the garbage cabinet door and the garbage bucket while cooking. Now a knee tap and you can put the trash in the bucket and then close it with another knee tap. This is the best home improvement project I've done.5
FantasticJoelThere are many things I love about my new kitchen. But showing off how I can open the space below my sink with the bump of my knee is one of the nicest creature comforts. Wet hands - no problem. Cooking waste & packaging - gone with the bump of my knee. I love this opener. It was surprisingly simple to install and works great. It is hidden and you never see it, but it is ready to respond when wanted.5
Easy to install and support usefulAxelI was originally looking at the Blum owner and was happy to find the IKEA version to be almost identical and much cheaper and easier to find. Installation was easy and it works perfectly. I wish I had bought this years ago!5
Blum Servo UnitJohnExcellent product that will push open a trash drawer when minimal pressure is applied to the cabinet door front.5
Awesome!!NeilPerfect for my trash bin cabinet because I don't have handles on my cabinets.5
Works on other cabinetsCarolynIkea makes frameless cabinets and this is sold to work on those. We had another manufacturer's framed cabinets, so weren't sure this push opener would install correctly on our trash drawer. We ignored the first couple of instructions, leaving the bumpers on our cabinet and not installing the side bumpers that come with this unit. We followed the remaining instructions to place the unit at the correct distance from the back of the drawer. We had to tape down the plastic "T" that you use to place the unit, its adhesive wasn't enough to keep it still while the unit is pushed back where it belongs. After that, the unit was screwed down and works perfectly. We had to cut holes into the sides of the cabinets to reach the electric plug under the next door sink cabinet. This unit is made by Blum with their servo-drive. It is a much less expensive version than you can find on cabinet websites. We are very pleased to have a touch-free trash/recycle drawer.5
Plan in advance, but a nice hands-free gadget for the trash can pull-outLeahNo need to touch the garbage pull-out with sticky or messy hands. Nice feature, but plan in advance to install since it requires electricity.5

Works most of the time..RickA fun gadget to have,but it seems to fall asleep when not used for an extended period..4
Works better then I expected - but...Verified BuyerWorks better then I expected. I was lucky to find out IKEA offered this Push Opener. It is a great addition to our kitchen remodel and IKEA should promote it more. My but ... is that it needs an electric outlet in the back of the cabinet that it will be installed in. My kitchen remodel or probably anyone else's did not include an electric plug inside a cabinet. It was not easy to add the outlet in the middle of the kitchen remodel. You need to plan for this in advance because usually the electrical work is done at the beginning of the remodel project.5
ConvenientGeorgiaWe put it on our cabinet that holds the trash can. It is very convenient when you have trash and your hands are greasy or dirty. you just give a gentle kick or push. The door opens and you can drop in the trash without messing up the cabinet.5
One of the best upgrades to our IKEA kitchenVerified BuyerWe bought this push motor to use with our 24 trash cabinet. We saw it the the store and immediately knew we had to have one. No more touching the trash bin with icky hands, no more cleaning the front of the trash cabinet daily, no more extra wear and tear on the trash cabinet. Love that you can just gently nudge the door with your foot or knee and it opens. Everyone who sees it wants one!5
AWESOME MUST HAVE PRODUCT!Verified BuyerThis is a great product as a great price compared to other sites that offer the SAME model. My wife was skeptical of this gadget but now agrees that it is a must have in the kitchen. Great handsfree operation for when your hands are dirty with cooking tasks! Highly recommended.5
Under cabinet lightingVerified BuyerTo big for under cabinet lighting the casing would show & look bad1
Very useful product. Expensive.Verified BuyerPart of my kitchen remodel; I put this under the farm sink to push out the 30inch drawer that holds 2 garbage receptacles, dishwashing detergent, etc. So Far works as it should. No need hands to scrape food into garbage receptacle while doing dishes. I hope the unit will last a long time.5

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.

Only recycled or renewable plastics

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 plastics

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!
