they are really amazing!


AnnCardiff Report 17 Mar 2013 20:53

I've just got some from M & S :-(


GinN Report 17 Mar 2013 20:57

No, not big knickers to hold in your wobbly bits! My hubby has just installed one in the corner unit of our new kitchen. As you pull it out, all these basket trays emerge, so you can get to all your pans etc. without rooting about at the back . All clever stuff!

The top drawer of my kitchen unit is a bit wonky !

They are good then are they ? Might get one if they are 'Magic'.
The bottom one is a bit iffy too ;(

AnnC doesn't seem too impressed !

Perhaps I'll read the conscientious of opinion before I buy ;-)


GinN Report 17 Mar 2013 22:17

You'll need a whole top to bottom floor unit to house one, Sandie.
Pretty slick mechanism, but won't start using it until rest of kitchen is finished. Hurry up, Hubby! (cracks the whip).

These sound very interesting.

I took out a cupboard unit (two doors) and replaced it with two big drawers, where the saucepans now live. So much easier to find things.

The Magic Drawer sounds ideal for a corner cupboard......... especially the one I keep the plastic containers (Tupperware etc)....... that's a nightmare! I keep all the lids in one big box, but matching containers to lids can take some time.



GinN Report 17 Mar 2013 22:43

I'll probably end up putting plastic containers in mine, Scozz - I seem to hoard them, same with plastic bags and coat hangers!

Oh ! :( ...My current 4 drawer unit isn't in the right place for that kind of thing.

Plan is to replace all the door fronts and drawer units,cos all the bases are fine.
Ram units, bought a few yrs ago ,so I'm not paying 10 - 15 times the cost of a new kitchen when it's just doors 'faded' from sunlight or slightly scratched ( plus kn*ckered drawer unit ) that need replacing.

Just needs a refresh :))
It's only taken 6 months for hubby and I to even begin to agree on the new doors !!!
He keeps coming up with all these different styles and colours ...phew !

Good luck with yours Geordie. :-D

AnnC~~ You had a grumpy face when you mentioned them earlier ;-)

M & S , ones I mean..I thought you had a preferred item of undergarment from a different establishment.;-)

Sorry to diverse from your real proper Magic Drawers Topic Geordie ,
but if you have met this lady AnnC I'm sure you wouldn't mind the 'slight intrusion' .

My cursor is going all over the screen's not a full moon is it ? No.. answers my own question !

I immediately thought of the squeezy nicks too! :-D

For daughter's wedding, I got a long-line boned number (not nicks) from Debenhams.
It was brilliant. When I removed it (sometime during the reception - though not AT the reception - I can do decorum when necessary), my whole midriff had a 'floaty' sensation, which melled well with the amount of intoxication I was enduring at the time :-D ;-) :-| :-S


LadyScozz Report 18 Mar 2013 02:15

I googled for Magic Drawers.........

And got lots of ads for magic knickers from Marks & Spencers :-D

I'd like some of those knickers :-D

How do I find a useful article on the drawers (the kitchen type ;-) ) ?

In 1979 when I first bought a house and had it modernised I bought some of those wire racks that you fit into cupboards, fitted at the right level they held pans lids and small items that would have got lost otherwise. When I moved I brought them with me and have them in the new kitchen units - they are useful.

I would have loved one of those tall units with mesh drawers that you pull out to reach but didn't have the space. So easy to see all the tins and such but I do have the cupboard under the stairs made into a pantry and that's incorporated into the kitchen so very handy.

I have a full length set of these drawers and a smaller one. They are wonderful for seeing everything at a glance. Here they are just called a 'pull out' which seems a good name to me as that is exactly what it does.


LadyScozz Report 18 Mar 2013 08:53


The cupboard under the stairs is in the study, but it's too small to do anything with (there's a small safe in there, and I've never been able to get to it, because my cranky knees won't let me).

I've got a cupboard that I use as a pantry, but it's too small; I've love to get rid of some of the shelves and put sliders in at least half of it.



GinN Report 18 Mar 2013 13:55

I think I may have got the name wrong - they may be called Magic Corners!
I did try some magic knickers once, but everything just came over the top - think I need a Magic Whole Body ! :-D

Ann, are they the ones which are like Yo Yo s,? :-D :-D :-D :-D

ll have some of them too, blinky brilliant:))

Sandie they are a must:)

Carosel corner units are quite good,fitted two,just open the door and turn round the two shelves on a spindle accessing everything easy. :-D :-D


GinN Report 18 Mar 2013 14:49

I was going to get one of the carousel ones, Merlin, but a friend recommended these ones. Opening the door causes an arrangement of metal basket trays to emerge, which give loads of accessible storage.
Can't wait for my new kitchen to be finished - I'm sure it will be worth all the upheavel! :-)
