{TIP For Kitchen Improvement}

Today I want to share with you a practical TIP For Kitchen Improvement. Above our Miele US oven we have still a rather deep cabinet, which was very hard to reach from the floor. Husband Pieter did add a 20" X 21" ROLL OUT DRAWER IN CHROME from Wayfair. Link you find below post. This works like a charm!
Above our Miele oven is this deep cabinet. It has another wooden shelf up high towards the back.
Now I just roll out this chrome drawer and can get to all the items I need.
Mainly oven proof French Pillivuyt items are nested in here...
Four sets are stacked in there; two deep and two wide and they still fit under the top shelf.
Lids can be stashed on the side.
There is even one Pillivuyt platter that fits underneath! It is an 8"x 8" serving platter.
Are you working with Roll Out Drawers in your Kitchen as well?

  1. Hello Mariette

    Thank you so much for your kind wishes for "New Zealand Settlers Day" how thoughtful of you ♥♥♥.

    I was totally unaware of such a day - how did you know that???

    I would love to say YES I have roll out drawers but no such luck - some of my cupboards I almost have to crawl into them find just what I need!!!!
    Very funny picture comes to mind - we won't go there.

    hugs
    Shane ♥

    1. Dearest Shane,
      Oh, a dear friend from Jakarta, Indonesia just mentioned that and I thought about you right away! You make me laugh too, as I once got stuck inside our corner cabinet, before we installed there also a roll out drawer. When you start laughing it almost is like you 'size up' and get STUCK inside. Scary and I was so glad I got out again.
      Guess that the most action is in the kitchen so it is worth while to improve!
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

  7. Lieve Mariette,

    Weer zo'n handigheidje in de keuken waar je maar op moet komen...
    om beter bij je spullen te komen....

    Voor zover ik terug kan denken hebben door de jaren heen de keukenontwerpers niet stil gezeten en telkens weer de handigste snufjes bedacht om het de vrouw des huizes makkelijk te maken....,en ook al jaren menige huisman;-)

    Het eerste wat in mijn hoofd opkomt zijn de keukens van Bruynzeel uit 1937 toen het bedrijf begon met de productie van keukens;de eerste keuken was een ontwerp van een bekende ontwerper, namelijk Piet Zwart. De fabricage van keukens was vanaf het begin succesvol, maar vooral door de wederopbouw na de Tweede Wereldoorlog ontstond veel vraag naar de producten van Bruynzeel. Men richtte zich hierbij voornamelijk op nieuwbouwprojecten in plaats van de particuliere markt. De vraag steeg nog eens extra na de ontwikkeling van de Simplo keuken: een eenvoudige en goedkope variant op de standaard-Bruynzeelkeuken.

    Daarna ging het in een stroomversnelling en goed was niet goed genoeg....(ook toen al),menige huisvrouw droomde van een Amerikaanse keuken, bijvoorbeeld van Raymond Loewy uit New York.
    Hij ontwikkelde daar zijn stijl en visie:
    een product moet niet alleen functioneel
    zijn maar ook prettig in het gebruik en
    bovenal moest het er 'mooi' uitzien. Door de opvallende 'streamline' vormgeving van bolle laden,het opvallende materiaal gebruik van staal en vinyl,en dan heb ik het nog niet over de mogelijkheden in kleuren.

    Huisvrouwen in mijn omgeving met (te)veel fantasie zetten hun keukenblok,koelkast,vaatwasser en oven naast elkaar in één kleur en vertelden dan aan iedereen die het horen wilden dat zij een Amerikaanse keuken hadden.

    Zeg heel eerlijk dat ik ook wel eens droom van een grote landelijke woonkeuken,maar dan niet voor al die nieuwste snufjes, maar voor de ruimte en gezelligheid,zou het inrichten met al mijn verzamelde oude aardewerk en serviesgoed in grote landelijke kasten met bordenrekken.
    Zou kiezen voor 'n grote boerentafel waar wij met z'n allen aan kunnen zitten....en terwijl we alvast 'n goed glas wijn drinken met onze gasten roer ik door de potten en pannen aan mijn AGA.......en komen de lekkerste geuren uit de oven die mijn gasten hongerig maken.....,en toen werd ze wakker....

    Niks van dit alles heb ik,gewoon klein keukentje met oud aanrechtblok,ja,ja....wel 2 spoelbakken en aan beide kanten roestvrijstalen blad, ,geverfde lichtblauwe kastjes,oude houten plankenvloerdelen,tafelmodel koelkast met 4 pits gascomfoor,combinatie magnetron/oven.
    Vaatwasser heeft nog nooit op mijn verlanglijstje gestaan,en toch klaag ik niet.....hier blijven nooit bergen afwas staan en ik krijg altijd complimenten van mijn gasten dat het eten heerlijk smaakt,dus keuken en koken heeft niks met luxe van doen in mijn optiek.
    Vrijdag komen mijn zussen en zwagers hier eten en daar verheug ik me nu al op!!!
    Sta al met een been in mijn keukentje;-)

    Lieve groeten en fijne dag!!
    Ger

  8. This is a great idea. You may have given me the solution to some of my deep storage cabinets.

    A BIG THANK YOU!

  9. Dat hebben jullie mooi opgelost Mariëtte.
    Je kan zo overal gemakkelijk bij.
    Vorig jaar hebben wij beneden alles verbouwd en ben ik ook gelukkig met een nieuwe keuken van Ikea, die heeft ook altijd van die handige opberg oplossingen en hier zitten in veel kastjes dan ook uittrekbare lades en korven.
    Zelfs onze garderobekast, ook van Ikea, heeft dit ook.
    Ik wens je een fijne dag toe.
    Lieve groet, Mea
