Self closing drawer slides
#11
  
I’ve gone cheap on these and while they self closed they were not soft and snap the drawer shut. This is for my kitchen so these will get a lot of use and abuse, so I need ones that will perform well and last under such conditions.

Obviously there’s lots of options out there for SOFT-self closing drawer slides. Which ones have you found to be best?

Thanks

Blum, under mount. Best I've seen.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

Well I’m already set for side mount, but I’ll check to see what they have.

My answer is the same - although I'm sure I have much less experience with other brands because I took the advice on this site to use Blum.  They are indeed excellent and if you build the drawer to the space specs required - easy to install.

Blum slides are very good, maybe the best. But I've had very good luck with KV as well.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Blum, Grass, Hettich are all decent. Though I tend to stick w/ Blum as I have the jigs for their stuff (hole drilling, etc.)

KV 8455FM Soft-Close Full Extension with Overtravel Drawer Slides work very well.

Thanks to all
I have some 15 sets of Blum sides on order and, thanks to the recommendations above, I have a feeling of confidence in the order and am looking forward to the anticipated quality.

When I’m ready for them I will look at their hinges first.
