Joanne Oasked

We have a white Kaboodle high gloss kitchen (3 years old). The oven housing has heat deflectors fitted as per instructions. Above the oven is the microwave housing and below are two drawers, however there are no cupboards adjacent to the oven either side. I have a Samsung oven with a pyrolytic cleaning option which so far I've never used. The temperatures on this function reaches 400 degrees celsius for at least 2 hours. I found this on the Samsung site: 'If the cabinets next to the oven are not rated for high enough temperatures, the finish on the cabinets can melt during Self Clean. This is not an issue with the oven." My questions is: do the Kaboodle high gloss finish cabinets have a high enough temperature rating? Please advise.

Has anyone had problems with kaboodle bin drawers. Mine are 2 bins side by side in a 600 cab. They only soft closed for a week and are now failing to close fully every time.

We have 3 bin drawers and all have failed. The bearings in the draw runner fail, fouling up the soft close. Now the drawer won’t close fully, runs really badly and the soft close doesn’t pull in. I called kaboodle who asked for my email address to explain the process for a warranty claim but I never received an email.
I’ll be chasing it up and won’t give up.

Has anyone had trouble with purchasing the kitchen cupboard doors in the “raw” and painting them? We are renovating at the moment...have had a retired professional painter paint the raw timber doors...he used a water based Dulux Aquanamel as the undercoat. The doors have swollen in places...we got a second opinion from another expert at a paint shop who advised that all was done correctly and to take them all back to Bunnings as it should never have happened. Bunnings reply was the issuing of a pamphlet to us saying Kaboodle’s 10 year warranty is null and void if painted by a third party. Are they for real? Why offer the product in the raw? From other comments here, we won’t hold our breath waiting for Kaboodle. Happy still that we never went with their “professional” finish when it is obviously yellowing and the customer is still not getting any satisfaction.

go directly back to kaboodle. the colour should not change. If its still under warranty and they cannot colour match, demand all doors be replaced, do this in writing.

Wondering if anyone has got a Kaboodle black olive with alpine profile kitchen? They have no samples of this at the local store and will go back next week to discuss organizing one for me. Would be interested to know how they hold up. The white alpine sample size at Bunnings looks grubby and like plastic and wondering if the black one does too. Thanks for any info

They use various materials for ttheir doors and benchtops. Best you ask them direct.

As long as you have proof of purchase (your receipt or tax invoice) Kaboodle will replace faded panels without question. The only colour known to have had some problems in the past was Gloss White, which randomly went a yellowish colour.

Paint it with Aquadere. It goes on white but dries clear. It seals/waterproofs any type of wood or composite wood.

If u dont take the plastic off the doors n things it tends to become ratty an looks dirty after a while it is there to protect the product petina an the longer it is on the doors the harder to take off an the original colour will be stifuled so common sence would dictate take the plastic off

Does anyone know if the Kaboodle cabinets and bench tops are made from water resistant particle board as is used by professional cabinet makers (ie the green color chips board)?

1 answer
JJ41
JJ41

I have had a look at the bench tops and they do not appear that sort of green/blue colour that normal water resistant particle board so I am assume that the Kaboodle chipboard is not water resistant. Anyone had problems with Kaboodle cabinets/drawers or bench tops swelling due to water ingress?

Update 20 Dec 2016 - Bunnings have confirmed thta the cabinet chipboard is not water resistant type.

What do you mean...'could not remove guide from runner'? Can you be more specific.I am currently putting a kaboodle kitchen together and have just done the drawers after much angst but I have now new found knowledge of what can go wrong in this aspect.

phoebe

I found the same, could only get one out of 12 undone. There's 2 holes towards the other end that will be attached to the cabinet that must be aligned ie align the holes on the outer 2 layers of the runner, THEN move black plastic up or down and pull out the inner drawer guide. Not that this is in the instructions, oh no, that would be too helpful! My husband worked it out infuriatingly quickly after I'd spent ages trying to undo all 12. He says this is a perfect illustration of why instructions should only be read as a last resort. My bad for reading instructions first. Come on Kaboodle, would it kill you to put that info in the leaflet?

How much bench overhang should I have near a stove, I have a 900mm corner unit followed by an end board then along side is the stove. Should I have some builders foil or just the end board. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Craig, I would contact Kaboodle. Normally you would install a Kaboodle 900mm Oven Cabinet as it has an open back for ventilation, adjustable legs for easy levelling and heat deflectors to protect neigbouring doors & panels. But it sounds like you are installing a stand alone stove next to the cupboard. My advise is call Kaboodle before you install.

I want to use either a wood or bamboo benchtop in the bathroom to replace existing unit. It will have a marble vanity basin on it and I have some concerns about these tops in bathroom use. Can you give any advice on this?
The Bunnings brochure shows hickory maple and Euro beach and Oak but were not on display where I visited. Are these woods suited to bathroom exposure to water and are they still available .

Sorry, i have no experience of this area, we chose an acrylic bench top and we are very happy with it.
