I wasn’t sure where to post this – not mine but I really like this idea & design.

I’ve seen those under several manufacturers. It seems like good idea, but there’s still a void to each side of the drawers. A lazy Susan type of system seems to be more efficient.

They may not be the most “functional ” thing in the kitchen, but ya gotta admit that they LOOK PRETTY DARN COOL!

True; you lose some space, but things are easier to get to when they are compartmentalized. A lazy susan sometimes allows things to fall off in back. Not good for people with bad backs.

I’m with MrRon, lazy susans are a PITA crap falls off them and you have to get down on a knee to see what the hell is in that dark space, where as a drawer pulls out and you can see everything in it easily.

You do lose some space on each side. However, if the drawers are full depth, you lose much less space than with a Lazy-Susan and nothing can fall off the sides or back.
