We built our house a few years ago and the builder installed a cheap plastic model. It is well worth the money to upgrade to this wooden version. The plastic shelving is not at all durable.
I think the installation time of 25 minutes is pretty optimistic. This is not difficult at all, but you need to get the location right and there is no good reason to rush this.
Also consider that if you are replacing plastic shelves with this model you will more than likely need to modify the facia to fit properly. Our facia has a sharp 90 degree angle to it that won't fit on these shelves with their radius. I prefer the radius for strength, but just a heads up that you'll need to work the facia a bit for a nice fit.

Very difficult and challenging to install. However, once installed its absolutely beautiful and matched perfect with my kitchen cabinets. Not to mention strong sturdy!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bacchetta424 Just what I had in mind. Easy install.
I purchased this for my girlfriend's kitchen, which has two corner cabinets as primary storage. Real unappealing for storage, so this had to meet high expectations and not make me look like a handy idiot.
The first thing I noticed was how beautiful and well made the trays are. I wanted to show them to people they were so pretty!
Installation went well, no false starts, no extra trips to the hardware store. I did find the instructions to be minimalist. The template for drilling the holes gets high marks. I would suggest that someone using it be directed to trim the cabinet front mark with scissors, and then tape the template in place, especially for the top to mark the holes. I would also suggest telling the installer that the template should be aligned with the inside wall of the front of the cabinet, not the face front. I made an educated guess on this which fortunately was correct.
When I refer to minimalist directions, I'm thinking of the six steps of directions, and the one completed illustration side view. It was a little hard for me to visualize the actual assembly steps of putting the shelves on to the center shaft. It went fine because the instructions were right on if brief. The reason why I'm saying this is that all of this has to be done inside a tight cabinet space with the two shelves that are quite large and the shaft. There aren't a lot of ways to do this.
I found that after attaching the top shelf I had to slide the bottom shelf in to the cabinet and then around the top shelf and shaft in a limbo fashion to position on the base of the cabinet. If I have to do this again, I'm going to put both shelves in the cabinet and then raise the top shelf and insert the shaft, and then lower the base of the shaft through the bottom shelf and in to the bottom positioner.
As someone who looks to optimize and get the most of my storage, I intend to pursue getting an additional 'upper positioner' so that I can raise the bottom shelf a few inches and thereby have some space below the shelf to store some large platters. I may also try to get a third shelf to put in the closet. Then the stacks of plates will not have to be so large and will distribute weight over three shelves and not two.
In conclusion, the installation went well in spite of seemingly minimal instructions, the product is beautiful and I hope to leverage some additional changes to get even more out of a very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AMT1 Great quality, a little pricey
Nicely finished and clearly with high end features such as detents to tell you when it is in the right position. Materials are not cheap plastic...metal and wood right where you expect it. Installation was easy but the instructions could have had better pictures of the components so that you could out how they fit a little faster.
