We purchased this kitchen cart to serve as a center island My kitchen doesn't have enough counter space when I cook and bake. I cook large quantities of food and freeze it. I figured that we could roll it into the kitchen when I needed it, then roll it out when I didn't need it. However, it now stays in my kitchen. It is beautiful. It is made of solid wood! Yes I said it, SOLID WOOD!!! No veneer, and the color is sort of a mahogany. Absolutely beautiful. With regard to the assembly My husband put it together, and as he did, he commented several times at how well this piece was made. The roller have locks. On the two shelves below, the slats are also made of the same wood. The two drawers pull through on both sides. We have thoroughly enjoyed this cart. I try to keep a cutting board on top to protect the wood, but I have three Maine Coons that like the view and have insisted that I bought this for them only. So the cutting board only comes out when the cats are off the cart while I cook.
This piece, unlike my other cart review, also came from China and in contrast was packaged very well. The assembly was straightforward and the quality was very good. This piece weighs something like 117 lbs and you can tell it's a substantial piece. I could probably keep a small black bear at bay with this piece. I would recommend this piece to anyone with enough room to accommodate a piece this size in their kitchen/dining space. Just beware that the metal is a dark gray and the wood has red overtones. If this matches your decor, you can't go wrong with the quality and sturdiness of this piece.
Stylish and doesn't look like assembly furniture, took about an hour and a half to put it together. A bit wobbly and there is nothing stopping the drawers from coming out, but the top is wide enough to fit a Keurig and a small microwave so it fits our purposes.
I purchased this for a small kitchen with limited counter space. It's a really attractive piece and is very sturdy and durable. Assembly was easy. It holds quite a bit and provides some very needed counter space. Very pleased with this purchase; good value for the price. I highly recommend!
Have had this cart for over a year now and it has exceeded my expectations. Needed some additional storage space and this was just the ticket. The drawers are great for spices and especially convenient since they open from both side. My pretty bowls and casserole dishes are on the shelves making them convenient to get to while adding a little pizazz to my kitchen.
I ordered this as a gift to my daughter. She was very impressed by the fact that yes, you do have to put it together, but it arrives semi put together. This is a very heavy quality piece of furniture that should last her a very long time!
