Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djm17 Awesome door
Love this door just what my kitchen needed to complete the new up grades. I was still able to use my rack I had on my previous door for spices etc Just bought clear containers and spice jars so it would look tidy from the outside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by benh2013 Amazing! Hard to install
I am nowhere near a DIY professional, but I was able to put this in all by myself, although it did cost me about $50 in additional tools (i.e. Door knob drill bit, new doorknob kit, wood chisels, etc.). This took me about 12 hours total, spread across three days: 1 day prep/chiseling, 1 day doorknob, 1 day painting.
However, after installing it and painting it, it is PHENOMENAL. I am SO proud of it. I make sure everyone that comes into our home notices how amazing it looks and that I put it in by myself ;-)
Here are my recommendations for installation:
Chiseling: If you haven't done this before, practice on a different piece of scrap wood. This will help you get the technique down before you wreck your nice door slab. I also recommend watching a few videos on YouTube or HomeDepot .com before attempting to mark/chisel this
Doorknob installation: If you haven't done this before, I don't recommend using a spade bit EVER. Spade bits on a hand drill that size are usually never a good idea and can case some severe wrist pain if it gets stuck. I also recommend drilling from both sides and getting a doorknob installation kit for $20-$30 by Ryobi available at Home Depot. I couldn't have done it without this!
Hinges: When installing the hinges, if you are replacing a door that already exists, make sure you use the original door as the guide for drawing the hinges on this new slab. When you've chiseled out the place for the hinges on the slab, make sure you don't tighten the hinges all the way onto it. Put it in the frame with the hinges still able to wiggle, put the pins in, and then tighten the hinges after the door is able to move freely. If you tighten the hinges onto the slab before putting it on the frame, you will have a hard time getting them to line up properly. This was the hardest part for me until I figured I'd leave it all loose, put it on, then tighten the hinges to the slab.
Painting/Staining: The glass portion of the pantry door comes with a layer of Saran wrap that is stuck pretty thoroughly to the glass. USE THIS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. Do NOT take this off until you have finished the installation and the staining/painting. Additionally, you don't have to worry about taping off the glass at all, which is super convenient. Then, when removing the saran wrap (after everything has dried), use a utility knife or an exacto knife to lightly slice the borders of the saran wrap. It seems like the Saran wrap goes underneath the wood, so you'll have to basically cut the edges and then peel it all off. Make sure you cut lightly so you don't damage the glass. Don't be afraid to use the exacto knife on the frosted side, either. This didn't damage our glass at all.

This was a great product, but is not for the timid do it yourselfers. If this is first time get help. Hanging a door is not usually good project to do and this is not a pre hung so you have to align cut and adjust the door yourself

we haven't installed them yet but they arrived in good time and good condition. I was pleasantly surprised withthe quality since they were so much cheaper than others like them.

Door is beautiful. Stained nicely. Glass covered already so it was not necessary to tape off before staining.

Very nice door. My carpenter installed (so for me, it gets an excellent rating for ease of installation :~) ). It really added a nice touch to the pantry. We have received many compliments.
