Last time I gave the 2 carat rating for the base spice accessory to the island end cap unit. This week is my 3 carat rating – the base pullout. It converts a useless filler into a pullout, creating spice storage. The (2) two middle shelves are adjustable, enabling you to put larger oils in the unit. I personally have this unit in a 3” wide space, and keep all my spices in it. I leave it open as I am preparing the meal. Also, if you spend the time alphabetizing the spices, you can find them quickly.
In Dura Supreme, this unit is available in a 3”, 4”, 6” and 9” wide cabinets. They also make 12”, 15” and 18” pull out base units, that can store more food staples than just spices. For the smaller pull out units,the outside front panel comes in various options. It can match the door if the unit is 6” wide or larger. For the 3”, 4” and 6” units, you have a choice of a plain overlay where the edges match the door profile of the kitchen, a ¾” thick decorative column, or a Pilaster/Post option.
Because of it’s flexibility with the interior shelves and the options available for the front “panel” treatment, it deserves the 3 carat rating.
Next week we will move on to accessories available for tray, platter and cookie sheet storage. Also, our cabinetry sales event is going right now check out our website for details.
