We have the corner slide out shelf thing in our rental.  Fabulous use of space.  I loved it when I lived there!  And it always makes tenants happy when they see it.   ;D

Looks amazing.  I'm so torn as to what color I'd add to it for accents/appliances.  I initially thought red but then I think lime green would be AMAZING!

How much weight can the slidey-outty shelves hold?  If I want to put seldom-used appliances on it and slide it to the back, would that be okay?  I'd ask KoD, but she probably won't actually use hers before she moves.  Yours has been used by someone, so you might know.  :)

Held all of our pots and pans for years.  Never a problem.  So can definitely take a lot of weight.  Also had cats on it from time to time.  :P

haha haven't even pulled the coverings off the doors ye! I'm definitely not ready for that step yet

You should leave them on as a "gift" to the buyers.  Along with the label on the oven door.  :P

I've got the paper at home to say how much weight it can take. I'll check for you when I'm in from work :) (remind me)

I think I intend to just pull them off literally like the DAY before we move (but I know we will likely pull them off sooner than that LOL).

My, how time flies....

I'm definitely incorporating this into my kitchen design, then!  Wheeeeeee!  I've never been a fan of the lazy Susan type of thing (stuff falls over when spinning round, then it wedges between the shelf and the wall and it won't spin, and you can't reach back to get it unstuck... it's a pain!).  But this is a good use of space.  I'm definitely doing it.  Even if it couldn't take a lot of weight, it's got to be better than not using that space at all.  Yay!

Thanks, KoD... the cold hard facts will help me if I need to convince my husband that it's not just a gimmick.  :)

I feel like off the top of my head I'm remembering that it's 8KGs per shelf - but if you remind me at about 6-ish, I'll check the actual paperwork and confirm  :)

Sure.   Just remind me around 5:45 to remind you around 6-ish, and we'll get this done.  :)
