My cabinets are 17 years old. The lower cabinets are still in great shape and my only complaint with them is when trying to replace the drawers after a thorough cleaning, it is a nightmare. The upper cabinets however are a major disappointment. Of the eight upper cabinets, two are no longer useable for anything other than cereal or other light items. My set of dishes sets on my counter because evidently the weight of them caused my cabinets to sag and pull apart. I used to keep some canned goods in another cabinet, but it too is unfit for anything now too. I guess if you regularly eat off of lightweight paper or plastic dishes, these cabinets would be an awesome deal. Now I have to remove the cabinets and try to repair/reinforce them until I can afford to rplace them. You can bet when I do replace them, I will either go with a better brand or have my cabinets custom made out of real wood!
