Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chasingstillness Really like it but a couple of issues
In general I think this is a beautiful product that met my needs 100%. I should have put these in years ago.
It took me a few minutes of studying the directions to "get" how the product would install but once done I'm happy with the process. Essentially, the framework is assembled first and then installed as an assembled product into your cabinet.
The upper basket can be installed at one of two heights. I have it on the highest option.
The only issue I had is one of the large "U" shaped brackets did not get machined properly thru the screw holes. I had to purchase a 4mm-.75 tap to rethread them correctly. I could have sent the entire order back for replacement but this modification is well within my skillset so I did it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GMDB Outstanding!
These Rev-a-Shelf wire roll out shelves are outstanding!!
Very well made, heavy duty (I have very heavy pots and pans). Would highly recommend these units. Turned a base cabinet with a mess of pots and pans into something wonderfull!! Now I can easily get to any pot or pan without sitting on the floor and emptying half the cabinet out to get one pot. Now I even have more room! Have fought with this cabinet for years -- no more! There was a slight problem understanding how to get the baskets out of the rails. There are little black clips on the sides, (looks like a little pointy thing), inside the rail with the basket pulled out. Push this up or down. On ours the two sides were reversed, one pushed up the other side pushed down. Take the time to read and follow the instructions. I have never reviewed anything before -- Well worth the money! Can't say enough!

Easy to install. I assembled and installed while doing a major remodel. I installed before the counter top even where delivered so that I had access from above as well. It took a bit of manuevering to get it into the cabinet, but oh boy the space I now have that was never usable before! Gives the kitchen a high end feel and well worth the effort.

Very sturdy and easy to install. Glad I bought it and am going to get another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quilter Quality Product-Beautiful Fit Inside Cabinets
Extremely happy with this product. Very well made, the baskets and the supports are solid, and the bearing strip that enables them to slide in and out is very well made. I wasn't sure which shelves I would like better, so we ordered these, and 3 of the wooden drawer type units. I am returning the wood units tomorrow, and will be exchanging them for 3 Rev A Shelf units. The other thing that is very important - these fit the cabinet! They did not cost me space. The wood shelves wasted more space than they saved. Absolutely recommend. (My husband did have to add boards inside our existing shelves to attach the metal supports. Worth it because they have a solid metal support system.)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NOVAHokie Could Be So Much Better
This two-tier basket system could have been so much better with just a little more thought in it's design and a few better parts. The basic problem is that it relies on bolted overlap joints to achieve a square condition (which the instructions point out is critical) with no way to lock or brace them. In addition, the low-grade slides plus one out-of-square basket made the whole thing quite difficult to install and make usable. I had to shim and block some of the joints to make the whole thing square enough to allow the baskets to slide in and out without jamming the slides and then re-shim it into the cabinet to make it rigid enough to install so that it would remain functional. I also had to add a dowel from side to side under the top basket so that the large U-shaped brackets that tie the whole thing together don't spread outward and cause the slides to jam and stop working. Of course, this meant drilling some new holes and countersinking them in the steel U-bracket so that they would make it into the kitchen cabinet.
All-in-all, I'd say you need a fair amount of mechanical skill/knowledge to make one of these work unless you get lucky and get one where all the parts just happen to match up. As a retired mechanical engineer, I can see how easy it would have been to make this kit "right" but the mfr went "cheap" and saved a few pennies in manufacturing which translate into a kit that the average DIY'er probably will throw back in the box and return.
And, speaking of the box, the mfr's packaging is in no way adequate for the weight of all the steel parts and it showed up in pretty bad shape. One of the basket handles was tweaked a bit out of shape cosmetically and I had to bend it back into place (thank goodness for low-grade soft steel).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dani Great quality, really useful
I am certainly enjoying the rev-a-shelves. I bought 2 and installed them in the single door cabinets on either side of my stove and store my frequently used pots, pans and lids. The metal and construction is first quality and they are heavy duty. My husband had no trouble installing them. These shelves eliminate the need to get down on the floor and dig around in the cabinet for what you need. You could probably get more items in your cabinet without them, but these keep things organized and you don't have to stack so high. I bought a wire lid organizer and set it in one of the racks to better organize the lids and reduce the amount of space needed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lunacydress Had some issues
This product looks and feels great- very sturdy and well made. There was a little design flaw, though.
I assembled the frame work and before I screwed it into the cabinet, I wanted to make sure it all fit, so I tried putting the drawers in. I put the bottom drawer in, and it worked fine. I put the top drawer in and the sliding rails were too far apart. There's nothing in them that actually interlock with the grooves on the drawer to keep the drawer in there. It relies on the tension of the framework, but the U-shaped support brackets splay out at the top (especially at the front- better in back, where the horizontal support bracket is) and are too wide to hold the drawer in.
We ended up jeri-rigging the whole thing and sliding a board along side it to push the brackets together and hold the drawer in. It's too tight now, but it's doable and the drawer stays in. Maybe we just got a fluke bad one.
