Hardware Resources Debuts Soft-close Mixer/Appliance Lift for Kitchen Base Cabinets

Ergonomic, spring-loaded lift upgrades the cooking or baking zone to move stand mixers and heavy kitchen machines from base cabinets to countertop height

(Bossier City, LA, September 5, 2017) Storing a big, awkward and heavy kitchen appliance out of sight, and then bringing it up to counter level – only when needed and without any lifting – sounds like an impossibility. But Hardware Resources’ hard-working Soft-close Mixer/Appliance Lift does the job. When outfitted with a sturdy platform, the spring-loaded system provides mechanical assistance to raise a stand mixer, blender, or food processor from a base cabinet to just below counter height. The lift then locks into place to keep a powerful small appliance steady while in use.

Three adjustable spring settings make it possible for the appliance lift to move kitchen machines up to 45 pounds in weight. (A heavy-duty stand mixer generally weighs between 20 and 25 pounds.) Soft-close dampers ensure smooth, quiet operation as the lift returns the appliance to its hiding place down below, inside the cabinet.

“We’re introducing this appliance lift now so our customers can get their baking zones ready for the fall and winter holidays,” says Marisa Sanchez, Product Manager for Hardware Resources. “This year they’ll be able to move their heavy stand mixers right where they’re needed, then put them away again—without hurting their backs. And they’ll gain valuable clutter-free countertop space for everything that needs to be done in the kitchen this time of year.”

The appliance lift is compatible with frameless or face-frame cabinetry, according to Sanchez. Attach the lift to a sturdy shelf at least ¾-inch thick and no longer than 20½ inches, and then customize the shelf as desired to complement kitchen cabinetry or countertops. Sanchez further points out storage possibilities such as pairing the lift with a wire pullout basket from Hardware Resources to store appliance supplies and accessories.
