Pull Out Pantry Next To Fridge
Consider what you plan to store in your pantry pull out.
As a general rule,having your pantry in the center of your kitchen will cut down on time you spend searching for items you will always need.
Additionally, placing it next to your refrigerator acts as an extension of the refrigerator.
Furthermore, most people don’t realize that many items commonly stored in a fridge, don’t belong there at all.They should be in your pantry.
The tall pull out pantry is very different from any other cabinet in your kitchen,
Arguably, it is the most dynamic.It slides out. It turns, it swivels. It adapts as your family grows.
Firstly,.you need to know which foods belong in your pantry and not your fridge. Here’s a look at that list:
Refrigerator No -Nos
• Bread (freezer is okay)
• Onions (keep away from potatoes)
• Potatoes (keep away from onions)
All of the above belong in your pantry.
In addition, there are many non food items that are good candidates for a pantry.
Heavy and cumbersome articles should be kept towards the bottom of the pantry, such as food mixers, pans and crockery.
Then, in the center, you can create an area for frequently used products such as spices, cereal and oatmeal.
Finally, less frequently used products, such as baking supplies, could be kept towards the top – accessible, but out of the way.
And always consider the amount of space you’ll need between each shelf.
Remember, these baskets are adjustable.
Modern pantries include dedicated shelves for specific products.
For example.potatoes are best stored in the bottom basket of the tall pull out pantry.
Obviously,they weigh more than most pantry staples.
The tall pull out pantry is not your typical traditional pantry.
A traditional pantry is usually a large free-standing unit or small room within the kitchen. Pantries of this style are a fantastic choice for those who both have a large kitchen and prefer traditional design.
Free-standing pantries usually offer storage in the form of shelving and drawers hidden behind a set of double doors. Pantry rooms, in comparison, are typically made up of shelving set from the floor to the ceiling of the room, offering space for huge amounts of ingredients and appliances.
If your kitchen doesn’t have enough space for this type of pantry – or if you prefer modern design over traditional – the pantry pullout is the best contemporary solution.
In other words. It is more than capable of handling the requirements of the average American family. Load it up with everything your family needs.
Remember though, onions and potatoes never go in the same basket.They may taste great together in your favorite stew.
However, you need to keep them well apart. The reason, as the food safety experts at Penn State University point out, is that onions and potatoes can release moisture and gases that will cause the other to spoil faster.
Coffee, bananas and items you frequently use are ideal at eye level. Put the stuff you rarely use up top.
Consequently, streamlining meal preparation by storing cold foods and dry goods in their proper places is a good practice. Also,it will help you cut down on food waste. Everything you need will always be at your at fingertips.

Pull Out Pantry Hardware.
How easy is the pull out pantry hardware to install ? If you consider yourself “handy”. You can absolutely install it.However, it is more at the upper end of that scale. Meaning, a professional usually installs this kind of hardware.
The key part of the process is getting the upper slide mechanism and the lower slide mechanism to match up.
Start with the bottom mechanism first.Make sure it is perfectly centered on the floor of the cabinet.The top mechanism is next. It is lighter. Ideally you need 2 people to install the top unit. One to hold , while the other inserts the screws. The rest of the installation can be carried out by one person.It’s a piece of cake from there.
One caveat of note. Split your door in two when attaching it to the frame. The reason being is that tall slim doors have a tendency to warp overtime.
The taller the door, the more likely it is to warp.Kitchens can be humid places. Stoves , kettles , coffee makers, toasters all add moisture to the ambient air.There is a plate included with the hardware that you can attach it to.
Once you’ve decided on the type of pantry you’ll have, and a size to suit your kitchen, all you need to do is consider how it will fit in with your overall design.
You can choose to have it blend in, which will mean choosing the same material for the door in the same color, with the same handle as the rest of the kitchen. This is very popular in modern kitchens, as the design typically aims to be sleek and minimalist.
Of course, you don’t have to split the door in the center.Take into account the lines and flow of the overall design of the kitchen. Perhaps, match the cut line with the counter height.Create beautiful flowing transitional lines this way.
One other thing of note. These pantries originated in Europe after the war. Wood was scarce so kitchen cabinets had to be frameless.Most american cabinets come with a frame.
The front of the cabinet is framed to add strength to the overall cabinet. This is no longer required with modern cabinet making techniques. For example, all Ikea cabinet are frameless. The point being is that if you have a framed cabinet……………….
Make sure the frame does not stop the pantry from sliding out of the cabinet.
As you know,the pantry slides out of the cabinet on heavy duty ball bearing slide mechanism. There are 2 basic parts of the mechanism. A top and a bottom.A height adjustable frame links the 2.
Add the storage capacity by mounting the baskets to the frame. Usually, it is either 4 or 5 baskets. This will depend on the height of you cabinet and/or what you intend to store.
Consequently,customization is easy because you decide where the baskets go. Therefore, if your family needs change over time, no problem. Rearrange baskets to fit your new situation.
This process is very easy.The baskets attach to the frame with all new “snap and connect’ technology.The baskets easily snap into the bracket. The bracket then connects to the frame.
Additionally,”snap and connect” ensures your baskets are held sturdily in place.The result is smooth load management and secure cargo control.
Narrow pull-out pantry cabinet.
