Pros: sturdy, good quality and looks nice, two different options for the top (stainless steel or wood) Cons: instructions are NOT easy to follow. Way too much packaging. It was the perfect product for our small kitchen that needed a separate place for our coffee stuff. I love the modern look of the product and adds so much addition storage space we needed.
The Good: All components were included in the package. I really liked the fact that the hardware packet included at least 1 extra of all fastener types. The assembled product looks very nice and is exactly as pictured. Assembly was fairly straightforward with caveats noted below. The Bad: Some of the pieces were mislabeled. Be sure to compare the images on the labels with the marked pieces. The unit arrived fairly dusty and dirty, but that wasn't altogether unexpected. The Ugly: The drawer rails on the side panels came pre-attached...but became unattached due to shifting during shipping. The manufacturer should have shipped the rails unattached and let the customer attach them. The result was that the holes in the side panels would no longer hold the screws securing the rails in place. A simple trick of filling the screw holes with small wood shards (broken off matchsticks or toothpicks) was necessary to get the rails to attach firmly. It worked fine, but based on the packing of the unit I'm guessing this is a common issue. Overall, the unit is very nice. Basic carpentry skills are handy when assembling the unit.
Came in 2 Boxes for delivery. Boxes are pretty heavy. Opened them to find everything is wrapped securely. Found this product to be easily put together and when your done it looks great. This cabinet has all heavy duty wood for the cabinet and the Stainless top is heavy also. I'm impressed with this product. Would recommend it to any one looking for a stand like this. My wife loves it. the first thing she said after seeing it put together was WOH. Everyone who comes to visit notices this cabinet right away. It really stands out and makes a statement. The black is beautiful with the stainless top. Matches all her stainless appliances. If you are looking for a cabinet like this Don't be afraid to get. This is worth the price! You won't regret it.
This was just the right size to provide extra storage near the kitchen. We keep liquor below and various stuff in the two drawers, like chargers and an iPad keyboard. It isn't easy to assemble, but not terrible if you watch the arrows and follow instructions. The stainless steel top and quality drawer pulls are a big plus, because they tie in with stainless in the kitchen nearby, with a black granite countertop. The black is a matte finish, not too shiny. It looks far more expensive than it is.
I ordered this buffet for my deli and it matches my black formica items and my other stainless steel items. I couldn't have designed a more perfect piece to fit in with my decor. Love it!
