The gliding shelves make it easy to access items stored at the back of a shelf. The bin shelf makes it easy to store trays, cutting boards and baking pans and provides easy access to these items. The installer was polite, careful, thorough, and even covered the floor with a padded mat so as not to mark the floor. Before he finished he wiped off all the shelves so all I had to do was put my wares away. I recommend this product and have shown my friends.
