I have a brand new - original bags still in the drawer (11 years later!!) The compactor holds pot covers. We are redoing the kitchen but keeping the same cabinets. So I will have a space ~ 15 inches to fill. Thinking of putting a wine cooler in there but feel sort of silly since the fridge is about 10 feet from the space --and we are not trying to keep wine at specific temps etc...just chilled. The darn things are 600 bucks > several thousand(!!) I would like to put a pull out trash bin and some drawers on top for tin foil and food prep stuff. What cabinet space use/needs do you have that would wouldn't trade for anything??

I should correct the above to mention that my hubby is looking at a wine cooler and that I think the trash center would be more useful.

15 inches sounds awfully small for a wine cooler--whatever one you'd find to fit in that space isn't going to hold very many bottles. The trash center would definitely fit better in the space.

Actually the 15 inch holds 34 bottles. For us, almost 3/4 of the year. My resistance is that the fridge works just fine for us to cool a few bottles of wine. I am seeking other ideas on how those narrow cabinets function for others. I have heard that there is a hydraulic shelf that can raise and lower items (for me ... it would be the food processor --I use it quite frequently and it may be nice to get it off the counter where because of its weight it has a permanent home.) There are so many inventive folks on DG that I figure maybe a few will share the 'I can't give up' functions they have for the narrow spaces.
