Are there different types of pan drawers?

 

The simple answer to that question is yes! We have 3 distinct pan drawer variants.

Pan drawers are very valuable and a much utilised kitchen unit in anybody’s kitchen, which many of us could not live without. It’s a very convenient place to ‘chuck’ pans in until the next time they are required.

Pan Drawers

If you have standard pan drawers then you tend to find that the pan handles can protrude through the drawer sides and scrap against the side of the unit when you close it. But, there is a simple solution available by having your pan drawers fitted with higher sides, as shown in the videos below.

Standard Gallery Rail Pan Drawers

All our drawers are fitted as standard with Gallery Rail sides.

High Sided Pan Drawers

This video shows the high sided pan drawers that you can upgrade your pan drawers to.

Glass Pan Drawers

If you want to upgrade even further then you can have glass sided pan drawers for the ultimate effect, especially pleasing on the eye when you have in-unit lighting.

If you want to upgrade your pan drawers in your shopping cart then you will need to click the “Special upgrade offer” button at the bottom of your shopping cart to do so.

You can see all the pan drawer kitchen units that we have available on our pan drawer page.

Internal Cutlery Drawer Clearance for Hob

If you are opting to buy a pan drawer unit with an internal cutlery tray and a hob above it then we do recommend that you have “at least” a 30mm depth worktop (preferably 40mm) and a hob which is no more than 50mm in depth. This is to ensure that the tray can close without any obstructions from the hob above it.

So, if you have a worktop which is 30mm in depth plus 18mm for the top of the unit and 8mm between the top of the tray and the unit then you would have a clearance of 56mm, giving you an actual 6mm gap between the top of the drawer and any elements on the underside of the hob. A worktop of 40mm in depth would give you a safety gap of 16mm.
