I do love deep drawers for a lot of things in the kitchen but, overall, I am NOT a fan of drawers for this application. First, even with padded dividers and smoother moving hardware, you are moving and jerking things more often in ways that could cause damage than you would if they were on a shelf. This is also one of the reasons I am not a fan of harder counter materials. Also, it is not flexible. You add or take away one item, and you have to redo the entire thing.

I have more than once put them in pantries (both larder and serving) and they seemed to be work quite well as long as there was someplace for them to park when not in use. I have never tried them in the kitchen proper though and am not sure if I could imagine justifying one there.

We (two adults) live a freakishly large (1500 sf) vintage high rise one bedroom. At times I feel a bit guilty as others have said, but it suits us. We can seat 12 at dinner and have had 40 for cocktails. Strangely, it is on a day to day basis when we might want to get a little away from each other that it seems tight. We really have no "away room".
