For me the bench height is the opposite problem! I get severe backstrain with 900mm height as I am 5'2 and short in the body. I can't exert downward pressure to chop or knead without backstrain, and have to lift heavy appliances and fermenting crocks too high to get them on and off the bench.

Dishwashing is also a strain.

I had my new kitchen made at 86.5 cm high. Perfect. Hubby is 5'4 , so it's fine for him too.

Our tall friends can just suffer when they stay - I do in their houses!

I made our range hood 80cm from the bench - no-one has to lose an eye!

Tansel Stainless Steel Pull Out Storage

If space is really important & every inch counts, using your pantry to it's maximum potential is important. When you use these stainless steel wire baskets, you have far more transparency. Even if you go a little higher you can pull the basket out & look underneath, which is far better than a shelf & having no visibility. Here is a link to an article showing how to maximise pantry space.

Yes, however one needs to win the lottery to afford your wireware - it's not practical for most people to go into hock for some wire drawers... their children's education and all sorts of other things take priority.

Wonderful product - very over-priced, in my personal opinion... and the way you guys are adver-commenting on every single kitchen article...
