Pay now. Deliver ?????

AdvantagesNone at all

DisadvantagesKitchen will not be delivered and MFI will try to keep some of your money

"In May this year (2007) my wife and I visited the MFI store in Leamington Spa to look for a new kitchen. We'd been to a number of other stores and had yet to see a kitchen that we both liked. After a good browse around the store we finally agreed that we both liked a kitchen called the 'Callisto'. We'd already taken the measurements for our kitchen so we sat down with one of their nice sales chaps who took our measurements, fed them into the computer ..." Read review

competent kitchen design and supply

Advantagescomprehensive kitchen range and product selection. in store designers. good literature and web presence

Disadvantagesdon't visit your home. no stock in local store. can't return surplus items.

"...it from the web site. The schreiber cabinets are of standard (chip-board) quality, the doors, architrave, and plinth are moulded MDF. The base units, like those of most manufacturers, have a 50mm service void at the back which I like. The draw runners are good quality all steel affairs. I fitted the kitchen myself and it was a breeze. I was reluctant to take up the fitting service from MFI because it had to be paid for up-front. I would advise ..." Read review

Quick review of Schreiber (MFI) Kitchens

"Not Impressed. The planning went well, the fitting was by cowboys, joints in the work tops were left open and warped, they drilled through electric cables in the wall. Now some 18months later there are handles that are rusty and one of the laminate draw fronts has blown up due to water ingress. Are MFI intrested ? No only in charging full price for replacement parts.

Advantageslocal, eager to help, always willing to listen to the customers needs

"...We ended up with a schreiber kitchen with appliances. It is a pale white with wood grain effect and today, still looks as good. We are know five years on. We were so impressed with the help and customer service that we furnished our whole house with mfi. Apart from the pine bunks and the 3 piece suite, Which with three children, two dogs and two cats, met there waterloo last year. I truly believe that the saying "credit should be given, when credits ..." Read review

Worth it in the end

AdvantagesCheap, look good when finished

Disadvantagesdamaged items, poor safter sales service

"We'd had MFI flat pack kitchens in our previous three properties and this time decided we'd save time getting the ready assembled. What a mistake! The first delivery had to be sent back - even the delivery driver didn't think it worth trying to unload - as some of the units had been crushed. Second delivery produced several damaged units, although the damage wasn't obvious until unwrapped. Third delivery still had one damaged unit. Finally they were ..." Read review

Quick review of Schreiber (MFI) Kitchens

"Our MFI SCHREIBER kitchen was expensive (almost 10k all in all) and in less than 3 years has been falling apart. The fitted larder fridge has broken including the door and seals, the freezer has broken, drawers constantly fall apart, handles are falling apart, had to repair the oven (engineer costs £90 per hour plus parts). The sink drain is leaking and I cannot find the parts to repair it as the plug is one of those remote knob operated contraptions, etc, etc, etc, in short: WHAT A PILE OF OLD TAT
