We purchased our Aristokraft cabinets three years ago from a reputable kitchen design store, not a big box store.
The cabinets themselves are quite beautiful to look at. However, we've had nothing but problems since installation.

1. One door front replaced because it was warped.
2. The trash can container slide out door replaced because the finish started wearing off after a few months. Replacement door is doing the same thing now.
3. On one of my cabinets, next to the cook top, the bottom pullout keeps sliding off the rail. You can't push it in, lift it up, or pull it out. It is stuck. Requires husband to remove the drawer, then the glides, readjust, etc. It's done this three times now.
4. This morning, I went to remove a frying pan from the 'pan drawer' under the cooktop. When I pushed the drawer back in, the entire draw fell off the rails. When I tried to see what was wrong, the drawer fell forward and banged onto my knee. Yes, I cussed like a drunken sailer.
5. The finish is very rough in many areas - primarily the corners of the panel inserts. it makes cleaning difficult.

We spent $30,000 just on our cabinets. Note: this is a massive kitchen. I would expect, for the price we paid, that the finishes, rails, drawer fronts, doors, etc., would last longer than a year or two. Very disappointed in the quality of these cabinets. The kitchen design center is sending someone out to look at the issues, and for that, I am grateful.
