found them

That's one youtube clip ~ there are loads more.

I have two corner cupboards, the door is hinged, so it's easier than the old-fashioned way, but it's still difficult to get into. Forget about the back corners! If I got in there I'd have trouble getting back out.

I used to have a carousel (not in this house) but it was a waste of space......just a turntable, and if anything fell off it the bl**dy thing jammed, more trouble that it was worth :-(

The basket ones look great.

Yeah, Scozz ! That's the one!
Now everyone can rest easy. :-D

I used to have the carousel ones in my kitchen, but got them to fit a magic corner one instead when I redid the kitchen 5 years ago. They are very good and I keep stuff in them that isn't used very often like my K*nwood and spare pans.

I also made them fit me plinth drawer units at the base of all the other units.....remember them? They are brilliant too......all my 'rolls' of foil, greaseproof and clingfilm fit nicely in the 6 inch depth of them as do lots of bun tins, roasting tins, wire racks all in space that is usually wasted.

I thought Magic Drawers were made from a large elastic band, a powder puff and a couple of bits of string.......

Ho Hum! ;-)

We have a cupboard in the kitchen (not part of the kitchen cupboards), it holds all my cookbooks (2 shelves of them ~ over 100!), a cupboard that holds the mixmaster & dishes that don't get used often; the bottom third is a wine rack and a drawer. The wine rack is three rows of seven....... and it's just the right size to keep cling film, baking paper, foil etc.... and there's some wine there too lol

I'll be showing OH the magic corners later............. he's already seen my magic drawers :-D :-D

I'm looking forward to having more storage space in the new kitchen, though I'm sure I'll soon fill it!
Were lucky enough to have a (small) walk in pantry, very rare in a '70s bungalow. I'm sure there's tins and packets in there since we moved in, so time for a major clear out.
We took one of the old plinths away to house the baking tins underneath - yes, space is wasted there.

That's what mine are, Carousel drawers. I couldn't remember what the name was yesterday when I posted.

I have always thought the space under the units is wasted, so would love to have plinth drawers fitted, wonder if it's possible now.

Just looked at the Magic Corners clip, they are great but I don't have any corners in my units, two straight runs in a galley kitchen.
