Finally can use that dead corner
on November 19, 2012
The Copco Coffee Cab gave me back a good piece of real estate on my kitchen counter. The very deep corner could not be used because a step stool was needed to reach anything back there, but now the Keurig coffee machine can occupy the corner. This stand rolls easily and smoothly by depressing the handle on the front. When released, rubber feet keep the stand and the appliance on it in place. It can be rolled as far as one wants, in a straight line. This kitchen gadget has greatly improved the neatness and function of my kitchen counter. I roll the Keurig forward to use it and then roll it back after I pour the coffee; it's that smooth and simple a motion.
At the same time I purchased the Copco version, I purchased the Handy Caddy brand which runs at one-third the price of the Copco. The Handy Caddy surprised me by working well, but can only slide out the distance of its size, a foot. That isn't far enough for my need. The Copco has a rubber type mat on its surface; the Handy Caddy is hard plastic.
UPDATE: I've been using this item for nearly two months now and so far no breakage. That said, I agree that the wheels are not well constructed, and I can clearly see how breakage could easily occur. I have been careful to ensure the wheels are correctly set and also to only slide back and forth, not at an angle. I thank the reviewers who posted their breakage experience; their words have reminded me to treat the Coffee Cab gingerly. I love having my kitchen counter space back and would greatly miss this item if it were to break.
UPDATE #2 June 19, 2013) The Coffee Cab lasted eight months whereupon the wheel axle broke. At all times it was used with extreme care. Because I have not found a better quality similar product, I replaced it. This pull out shelf is a tremendous help in my kitchen. I removed one star from my rating because of the poor construction of such a great idea.
UPDATE #3 February 2015. The second unit lasted over a year and a half before the axle broke. I still love this rolling shelf. It carries a large Keurig and rolls smoothly on a granite counter several times a day. Of important note, the new unit I just received is constructed slightly differently, an improvement in the fragile axle. The prongs that were problematic are now encased in a thin metal sleeve. It's good that the manufacturer finally acceded to customer complaints. Hopefully, this change will result in a more reliable unit.
