I just bought a house with KC cabinets from a kitchen remodel 8 years ago.
On the positive side they seem sturdy and well-built. They've held up to the constant use after 8 years and still look brand new (they're white, so they'd show damage or scuffs, etc. pretty easily). KC's big thing is that since they aren't built with normal cabinet face frames, so you get bigger openings into the cabinets. This is true and makes loading them and retrieving stuff very easy.
Only downside is that they're not pretty wood carcase-built rail-and-stile joinery cabinets, which I find much more attractive. To some extent they look like Ikea furniture - veneered pressboard joined with metal fasteners. No sagging is evident in the shelves though.

very good now for the downside go on

in other words: they are framed cabinets your not sure if you will replace your frameless cabinets this year or next year. You really want a house with framed cabinets. go on

in other words: they are crap! "pressboard furniture"

they must have been flipped the day before you bought it. 8 years...pb........no sag.................never heard of it.

Petro, I'm not sure what your problem is, but you're (that's "you're", not "your", BTW) making assumptions about my cabinets that are all incorrect.. The cabinets, (referred to as "they're", not "there", BTW) were used by a family of 4 for 8 years and look absolutely brand new.
If you've got some kind of problem with Kitchen Craft, why don't you say so, and describe your (yes, that's the proper use of "your") experience instead of twisting my words.
You might also want to explore this neat button on the keyboard called "Shift".
