"Don't be fooled by the drawer fronts of the lower two drawers, the depth is the same as the top drawer and rather shallow. The assembly instructions are not very good and you have to follow them really closely to assemble correctly. The soft close feature was pretty poor for me too and only the bottom drawer actually soft closes in line with the pre drilled holes, the others were out of line for the soft close catch.
In saying all of the above I think the actual quality for the money is excellent and all the units look very good. The doors are great and the units are pretty solid. I screwed the legs bases into the unit as they don't seem very sturdy.
Don;t be put off by the 'cons' I have written as I am overall, very happy with end result and the kitchen looks far more expensive than it is.
Bottom line, 9.4/10"

"The drawers are a disappointment. from the front and catalogue diagram ,, they appear to be deep drawers but they have ridiculously shallow sides making the a bit pointless for a kitchen"

Pros: looks the business, lovely soft close motion
Cons: check the runners for burrs before fitting them.
"Took way to long to put together, looks great when finished, but one of the draws wouldn't close as I found out there was 3 burrs on the runner completely stopping it closing. It took some serious hammering with a screwdriver, chisel and closed pliers to flatten them to allow the draw to close. Apart from that, lovely little touch with the soft closing draw's. Really looks the part. overall happy with the product!"

"Really lovely drawer unit. Found it a little difficult to put together, but only because I have never put a drawer unit together before. Looks really good and the soft close drawers work really well."

Pros: good value
Cons: better quality chipboard needed.
"We chose the Edmonton range of units due to their neat and clean appearance. The doors in particular are easy care and if one should be damaged then a quick lick of paint will usually cover the damage.
Assembly is fairly straightforward provided you read the instructions carefully and lay the pieces out to do a dry run before screwing them together. We have done a belt and braces job on the main carcases by using a good quality adhesive on all the butt joints before screwing them together. I would recommend doing this as the units are only held together with 4 screws.
The drawer units need to be assembled VERY carefully, especially the drawer fronts.
Any error will show up as a missalignment when assembled or the drawer can jam badly in the base unit. Yes, we did mess one up!
Also the drawer runner bebefits from an extra screw at the front to give a bit more stability otherwise the runner can bend slightly and stops the drawer from closing properly.
The overall quality of the units is quite good bearing in mind that these are essentially budget products. However, I would have preferred a slightly better quality chipboard. It is quite brittle and needs to be handled carefully if any trimming is needed."
