“Works great. It is not evident at first but when you fold down the hinged door it can be folded back under the unit. The first month or two I just opened the door to hand down. A small amount junk from opening the cans would fall on the door and after awhile I had to clean it. Then, I found that I could push if back another click, presto, no junk. Oh well. Good cleaning practice.“

“Alright, I read all of the reviews and actually was concerned about the installation concerns others shared. My husband and I found it to be an easy and basic installation. We were prepared for all cabinets and cabinet depths not being equal or standard in thickness and grade etc which explains mixed reviews on installation.
That preparation made this a very easy installation. Other complaints above the cover being in the way or poor quality are completely false from our usage.
The cover is actually a great feature, goes all the way back so its out of the way when your opening all can sizes – big and small. And when your done you close it and it looks very savvy. Absolutely ecstatic about the quality and how well it works.”
