Rev-A-Shelf – RV-18KD-18C S – Double 35 Qt : Adore these trash bins!!!

I have been looking into options for storing my garbage container and this product fill my needs. I have limited space in my kitchen and being able to place this into an unused cabinet is great. The product comes with two very sturdy garbage cans that can be easily removed so they can be empties. The product came with easy to follow instructions to put it together and i was able to complete the project in just over an hour. The track moves easily in and out of the cabinet. The other aspect of the system that i like is that it has a handle that you grab to pull the containers out of the cabinet. I will be looking into other products made by this company to help me make my kitchen cabinets more useful. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to store their garbage cans within a kitchen cabinet.

We have two large dogs who are so well-behaved you’d almost think they were trained that way. But we all have a dark side, and for these dogs it’s an affinity for the trash receptacle. I tried everything, including an $80 trash can. Alas, these otherwise dim-witted animals can out-think anything with a latch. Often times the dogs forget where the trash is, and when i open and close the drawer for trash and recycle; it flashes in their goldfish-brains for a second only to out-smart them again by completely disappearing into the cabinets. It’s wonderful and keeps me from losing my cool after a long day at work, whining kids, and a terrible commute home only to find the kitchen trash spread across the entire floor. This rarely happens now, unless someone forgets to close the drawer all the way. Edit:those f&^*&^ng dogs can open this now. Still cool aesthetically in the kitchen, but no longer functions for the reason i purchased it.

We just moved into our new home, and i really love it, but i missed my underneath cabinet trash & recycling drawer. I found this and it was here in 2 days. It installed easily and works great, sliding smoothly and fits perfectly. But i knocked off one star because 1) no screws were included and 2) the handle (pictured) was included but there were no instructions for installation, it couldn’t install as shown as the clips were too big, it wouldn’t have fit anyway if i wanted to close the cabinet.

One bigger size and the next size down. I then purchased the door bracket to have one handle for easy access. We’re still in the process of the remodel but it’s coming together. I will buy rev a shelf items in the future.

If you have the cabinet space this is well worth the investment. I didn’t realize it but the garbage cans are nearly twice the size of our previous under the sink can (using the same bags) so now we can empty the garbage every two or three days instead of every day. I love being able to have recyclables right next to the garbage. The mechanism is incredibly sturdy and much higher quality than what’s pictured. The installation was a breeze with no swearing whatsoever. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough.

This was the best addition to my kitchen so far. We have a kitchen that doesn’t have a convenient place for the garbage or recyclables. Prior to installing this, we had a stand up garbage can that kept banging into the cabinets (and 3 kids creates enough damage as it is) and we had a bag on a door knob for the recyclables – what a drag. Now, it’s all in one place, easy to get to and the right size to reduce taking out the trash/recylables enough to not make it an annoyance but also enough to ensure no smell comes out the cabinet 🙂 super easy 4 screw install. Looking forward to our next rev-a-shelf purchase for our super skinny cabinets to finally make them functional too.

Why oh why have i not done this sooner????. I cannot tell you how great these are. We kept out trash can in the pantry for the last seven years. I came across these gems and cannot tell you how much i adore the trash being put away. My husband was able to install them with no issue by himself. Do make note the height of the unit. We placed these under our cabinet that houses the sink and didn’t account for the sink drainage pipes. We found two shorter trash bins at a local hardware store, but they aren’t near the quality of the bins that come with this unit.

We had ordered this for under the sink, but it was just slightly too wide. We were able to use in a different cabinet though. So far (a couple months) this has held up well. The cans are slightly smaller than a traditional kitchen can, but it hasn’t been inconvenient. This works very well to keep children or animals out of the garbage or just to keep it out of sight. The cans lift out separately too making emptying easier.

Who knew i’d be excited about my trash cans?. I just installed this so my review will be mostly based on that. I’m a sahm who occasionally likes to prove to my husband that i can do a diy completely on my own. I was able to install this plus the door attachement in one hour with my 12 mo old crawling all over me. It was really easy and made even easier with an electric screwdriver. Instructions were clear and easy to read. They were written by someone who has a complete understanding of the english language and knows how to explain things. My kitchen now feels high end. I’m glad i spent the money on this.

This thing is rock solid and buttery smooth. If you decide you want to add lift-up lids, just make sure you watch the spacing when you install, or the can in the back won’t come out far enough for you to open/close (the lid). I may have made that mistake for all of you in order to save you all the trouble.

It super easy to install, glides nicely, and two cans is a must for a family. The cans are not full sized cans. I’d say they fill a garbage bag to about 70%. I use the rear one for non yucky items so when the front bag is full, i remove the front bag and finish filling the front bag with stuff from the rear. It was a really great purchase. If you don’t have room for a garbage can or just want to have it hidden, this is a great solution.

I have had this unit previously, although with green and white cans. The old unit i had came with lids. I was not aware that this one did not, although that’s not technically the fault of the unit, as the picture does not show lids. This comes with a lifetime warranty, but mine only lasted 3 years. I do have six children who are hard on things, though.

The rev-a-shelf install was ridiculously easy. From unboxing to installation the process took right at 15 minutes. And the bulk of that was removing a shelf from inside the cabinet. The slides are smooth and the unit itself is sturdy once properly secured. The cans seem durable, and hefty cinch sacks 13gal fit well. I’ve got the door kit as well, so that will be the next mini-project. I’m impressed with the design and i’ll update as needed if there are any build quality issues. So far, this is a must-buy for kitchens where a trash can placement in the open would be an issue.

Good product, just as advertised and a great use of cabinet space. Beware that it allows for absolutely zero clearance to accommodate any ‘lip’ on the bottom edge of the installed cabinet. Out cabinets had bout a 1/16′ smaller front than the cabinet interiorand i had to shim the rail assembly up to allow the sliders to clear. No big deal, but seems like the assembly should allow for what, i’m sure, is a very common occurrence. $50-$75 would be a much more reasonable price for what you get, but i knew that when i made the decision to purchase.

I was looking for something to organize my laundry room double doored cabinet. One that was a disaster with odd socks, cleaning rags and hidden odds and ends. The kind of cupboard where you open the doors and stand back because you know something is going to fall at your feet. Not a pleasant admission for a neat freak. It was essential to get organized. These bins serve so many purposes. All told, i now have 4 bins (two double binned pull-outs). One for odd socks, one for dirty laundry, one for rags and now one for garbage, which was previously on the floor next to our dryer. The best part, it’s all hidden but still easily accessible.The bins are heavy duty and the slide outs are very sturdy and slide out smoothly with ease.

Mounted in conjunction with the dm17 door mounting kit. This easily fits inside my 36′ sink cabinet although i use this on the other side from the sink. You obviously cannot mount it under the sink directly for there would be pipes in the way, etc. The screws that mount the back to the cabinet floor. Way too small as other reviews have pointed out. Those 2 screws will be under the most stress when you slide out the rack all the way and perhaps push down on the trash can to cram it down so you don’t have to be the one to empty the bag 🙂 i replaced those back screws with heavy duty cement backerboard scews. The wood will fail before the screws do. I recommend you do the same. Other than that, it went together in minutes.

This product is very well-made. My daughter installed it for me. What a pleasure to have garbage and recycling hidden from view. I should have done this look ago. I’ve bought other rev-a-shelf products to make reaching everything in my cabinets a snap. As a senior citizen, it’s a blessing not to have to kneel or bend to get to stuff.

Rev-A-Shelf – RV-18KD-18C S – Double 35 Qt. Pull-Out Black and Chrome Waste Container : This trash shelf system replaced the bulky trash can we previously had in the kitchen. I thought, for sure, that i would be unhappy with the size, but it has worked out nicely. I take out the trash at about the same frequency as before so no worries there. The advantage is that we save space and the trash is out of sight.

Fits an 18” base cabinet like a charm. With about 1 3/8” clearance from the cabinet carcass sides. Install such that the rubber bumpers on the front are at the same depth as the back surface of the face frame (if you have face frame cabinets). I highly recommend the adapter brackets that allow you to directly attach the door to the pull out. It gives a much more polished look and removes the step of opening the door first before pulling out the bins (and, the potential for causing damage if you try to close the door without pushing the pullout all the way back in).

 speed of delivery ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ quality of the product ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⏰ minus one star because only time will telll. Ease of install ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ minus one star for incomplete directions – and i get it. . Directions are provided for just about everything else, except the final component. . The handle – but incomplete directions, just feel lazy & unprofessional. By the way putting the handle on just requires looking at the photograph and squeezing the “u” shade connector hard enough.

I love this system and can’t believe i waited so long to buy this. It was fairly easy to install (for a tiny person who fits under the counter easily). It slides nicely and feels sturdy even when both cans are full. After a few days of using this, i broke down and ordered the kit that attaches the cabinet door to the front of the sliding rack, so i don’t have to open the door, slide the rack, then close the door. I highly recommend that if you’re installing this. (rev-a-shelf heavy duty door mount kit)the sliding shelf made a huge difference in our small kitchen. No more ugly trash cans sitting out. (and the door mount kit makes it even better, especially when i’m busy and only have 1 free hand.

We purchased this after moving into a new house. We had the home depot brand one at our old house which i also installed. These are cheaper, bigger, and better quality. The bins themselves are thicker than the others. The track is a lot smoother, and the fold down handle makes pulling them out a piece of cake. The old one we had you just pulled on the front bin itself and it would tip out every other time. This handle is a revelation. The most difficult part of our install was removing the built in shelf in the cabinet. But as far as this product, it took less than 15 minutes to assemble and install. We love it and are very happy with our purchase.

Anything rev-a-shelf worth purchasing just redid whole kitchen installed r-a-s in every base cabinet, pantry and slide out for tray over fridge great product.

I needed a sturdy under-cabinet mounted and slide-out trash can holder and since i had previously bought, installed & used a lighter-weight product for 5 years in another house, am pleased to report that this choice was a major improvement over that one. This is a heavy-duty, well-made product that delivers exactly what i wanted: smooth slide action, trash can capacity (at 35 qts that’s the largest plastic can that will fit inside a cabinet in a slider-13 gal. I wanted double cans since i wanted to recycle in one while using the other for more appropriate trash. It came with an extra feature that wasn’t in the sales information or even in the product sheets in the box when it arrived. It came with a 7′ long u-shaped piece of metal with black clips on the ‘horseshoe’ ends and, in spite of having no direction from the installation manual, i clipped it onto the top front rail of the slider metal body frame. It’s a ‘pull-out’ handle for the whole slider that i never had missed or thought of before since no other products i’ve seen have one. After using this for the past two weeks, what a great feature. No more grabbing the edge of the plastic can to pull the whole thing out, sticking your fingers into old garbage and it rotates up or down, as you want to use it, and then sitting flush with the rest of the fixture so you can close the cabinet door. Now that i’ve used one, i’d never do without it.

This little unit brought a year to my eye. It’s poetic curves, strong silent steel and a smooth glide that will leave you feeling weak in the knees. The plastic bins are trusty classics that never fail. They are elegant and mysterious, and everything that one desires of a plastic bin. I can spend hours pulling this out and pushing it back in. The sound it makes is similar to that of a flight atop and eagle with gossamer wings. I also feel like a secret champion because i got a free handle. Oh how i revel in my own personal rose tinted world. I alone posses the only handle amoung the millions of units sold. For as i peered through the amazingly detailed instructions, for which there is no comparison, i did not find a picture nor a mention of this elusive handle.

This is just what i was needing for an under cabinet trash bin. I was tired of seeing my trash can sitting out on my kitchen floor. I wanted a pull out bin but didn’t want to sacrifice the amount of space for trash. Some of the bins on the pull outs are on the small size, not so on this one. And, i love the fact that this one has two good sized bins and still fits in my standard depth cabinet. I am using the front one for all trash and back one for paper only. Standard 13 gal trash bags fit perfectly in the bins. The handle on the front bracket is great, it keeps you from having to touch the garbage bin.

Great and easy to install product. I got tired of having the trash and recycling cans in the pantry. Everything seems to be heavy and solid quality so i’m happy about that. But the reviews led me in the right direction and i’m so glad i bought it. The only thing i worry about is the weight of the cans if we don’t empty it soon enough. But the cans being a little smaller prob help encourage that so whatever. It’s weird to be this excited over a trash can but i am haha.

I love that it comes with 2 trash cans and they fit perfect under my standard single cabinet. It came in a bunch a pieces in an unidentified box with absolutely no instructions for installation. It was a guessing game that took a few trial and errors to get it to work correctly and we’re handy people. It would have installed in a fraction of the time had it just come with some installation directions. I’m not sure where this is really coming from and i didn’t get an open box price if it was already used and returned. Don’t forget to order the door attachment pieces separately if you want the system to slide out when you open the door. These came in a manufacturer’s box with overly detailed instructions.

This pull-out garbage can / recycling bin combo is perfect. It is exactly as advertised – fits perfectly under my sink cabinet. It’s very easy to install – only took about 5 minutes and didn’t even require any measuring. Just connect two pieces, put under your cabinet, and screw in through the 4 holes. I had a similar model from rev-a-shelf in my last apartment and loved it so decided to upgrade to a larger 2-container size and i love it.

Very easy to asemble, fits perfectly in my cabinate. The material seems very durable and the size of the bins are perfect. The bottom rolling part of the frame is very durable and sturdy, slides in and out with ease. Only concern i had while asembling it was regarding the “frame” around the bins holding the bins in place as well as the handle. You just clip/push them together in place. I was worried about it falling off after a while of use and me needing to put it together again. But nothing of the sorts has happened yet. I’ve been using it for a little while now and its fine. Great way to hide your carbage and keep your kitchen looking neat.

Very little assembly required. One only needs to snap in place the upper bars that keep the containers upright. Per the included instructions, you will need a drill to make pilot holes for the screws that anchor the rev-a-shelf. I’m a big guy so it was a bit of a challenge to screw the two rear screws. Please note that this does not come with covers, so when checking the dimensions of your cabinet door opening, be sure to account for the covers (if you plan to use them). Also, if the cabinet is under a drawer that has a handle, make sure that your depth dimension (from the front of the cabinet to back) accounts for pulling the shelf far enough for the flip cover of the rear container to clear any drawer handles. On mine, the back flip cover does hit the handle, but i can’t bring out the rev-a-shelf any further. This is not a knock on the product. That’s just the limitations of my particular kitchen cabinet.

I’ve been wanting to order this for a while, but recently my dogs have taken an interest in my trash can so i decided it was time to do it. I also have recycling that comes each week, but since i didn’t have a separate container i never really leveraged it except for large items. I also ordered the brackets which attach it directly to the cabinet door which i highly recommend, but the rest of the review is about this product specifically. The installation of this item is super simple.I had this installed in the cabinet of desire in less than 15 minutes. It literally might have taken me as long to get the shelf out of the cabinet because of those darn clips than to install this. Upon arrival, the base unit ships in a single piece, and then you just snap the wire frames for the bins into place. I never measured my cabinet, even before ordering. The awesome part about this being a bottom mount piece is the width of the cabinet isn’t all that important as long as it is minimally wide enough. I’m usually pretty anal about measurements and installations being an engineer, but this looked simple enough i just eye-balled it.

Just received this, pulled out a shelf and installed it by myself. The product seems well made. And i love not having a trash can out in the open in my kitchen.

The company installing our kitchen included a unit with a single trash can, from the same company, with our order. We felt it was a waste of space, so we ordered this one, and the mounting brackets to attach the door, so pulling the door pulls out the trash can. The reason for only three stars is that i believe that as far as convenience goes, this is not a complete unit. You absolutely need the mounting brackets.

Let me first comment on the end product: this is a very high quality pull-out waste basket system that is meant to be installed in an open cabinet with either an existing hinged door or an attached door. I had to do a little bit of research on rev-a-shelf. Com to be sure that i was buying the model that fits my cabinet, since the descriptions here on amazon are less than adequate. So be sure to cross-reference the model number with their website to ensure you are buying the right model. Further, i had to do a little research to find a model that can be used to replace my old pull out system with my old cabinet door. Rest assured, the model i am reviewing can be used for exactly that purpose. Be aware because some of the rev-a-shelf models are made only for swing out doors and are not meant to be attached to a door as this model is. Also, although it looks like this model comes with a door, it only includes the inner system itself and it is meant to be attached to an existing cabinet door. It also comes with two very nice trash bins, all packaged neatly and safely together. When all is said and done, this is a very sturdy and attractive set that looks and feels to be of very high quality.

This product, the pull-out sliding rack and garbage containers are great. I also bought the brackets to mount the cabinet door, and they ended up working well, but they were just **barely** able to reach the cabinet door edges. They need to reach the edges because the screws would go all the way through the thinner middle part. 5′ apart, and this was the most you can possibly go. It does work, and this was able to be aligned/adjusted quite flexibly, and it was a great conversion.

I installed this rev-a-shelf along with the door mount kit and the girlfriend approves. Slides very effortlessly, but i did make sure it was all nice and square before securing the 4 mounting screws to the cabinet base. Make sure you visit rev-a-shelfs website and check the part numbers to make sure you get the right size. Most of my 15′ cabinets which fit the 35qt didn’t have room so i had to return this 35qt and use a 12′ cabinet with the 27qt trash can version of this product. One note to installing, dry mount the door kit for your cabinet if you’re using it before securing it. I took this advice from another review and it made it easier. If you install it, then use the door mount, you can’t easily get the right depth. By putting the door mount kit on first and putting it in the middle adjustment depth you can then install the actual slide rails at the perfect depth for when it closes it actually latches in. This way it doesn’t just bump against the cabinet face as a ‘stop’ point. Mine actually catches and hits the rubber slider ends to ‘hold’ the trash cans in right as the cabinet door goes flush to the cabinet face.

Fits perfectly in our 18′ cabinet. I was under the impression this had a soft self close feature like i saw a review on youtube but i was wrong. That was a bit disappointing but i didn’t want to deal with returning it and paying more for one with that feature so i modified mine. 22′ soft close full extension slides can be purchased at home depot for $20. I purchased those and some bolts and mounted them to mine. Now i have the soft close feature and it took me about 30 minutes to modify them. The cage that the cans sit on unscrew and i drilled holes in the new railing and screwed them back to the cage. The mounts which bolt to your cabinet are riveted to the slides. Drilled those out and use a #8 machined screw and nut.
