Hands-Free Kitchen Drawers
The Blum Servo-Drive drawer system electronically opens drawers and doors with a single touch or light pull.
If you’re looking for one more way to take your kitchen into the 21st century, the Blum SERVO-DRIVE drawer system might be just the way to do it. This collection of electric actuators works in conjunction with a variety of Blum’s slides and hinges to open drawers and overhead doors with a gentle tap, allowing you to put things away without putting them down to open your cabinets. And if your primary motivation is creating a minimalist aesthetic, the SERVO-DRIVE openers preclude the need for handles and pulls, leaving your cabinets free of visual clutter. If the SERVO-DRIVE seems a bit extravagant for your home, there is one place in the average kitchen where it’s arguably worth the investment: the trash and recycling pullout. For just over $200, you can get a self-contained kit that will service one drawer. If you want to add SERVO-DRIVE to multiple drawers or doors, it’s easy to assemble a complete system out of Blum’s collection of plug-and-play components.
