Convenient kitchen for wheelchair users
Description The spacious L-shaped kitchen has an adjustable height interior with sink, stove and counter, adjustable height upper cabinet, refrigerator, freezer, pantry with slide-out storage and a separate cabinet with counter and storage drawers. The kitchen also has a breakfast nook.
Users comments The user enjoys cooking and often does so. The user feels that the best feature in the kitchen is the separate cabinet with drawers, see associated tip. He feels it is much more practical than the adjustable height upper cabinet. He also feels that the tall cabinet with slide-out storage is easily accessible for him.
