This product was very easy to assemble. The directions were easy to follow and the assembly went very well. Two women assembled this is a few hours with minimal tools and only basic skills. We decided to take the wheels off as it seemed a little top heavy. We also took the spice rack and towel holder off because our kitchen is pretty small. I love the look of it and the extra counter space is very helpful. I love it so far.

The only downside is that the package (two boxes) is VERY heavy...other than that, this is a great purchase at a great price. The cart is easy to assemble and assembles fairly quickly. The cart itself has ALOT of storage and looks amazing. Highly recommend it to anyone!

Easy to assemble, and fits in my long narrow galley kitchen. It's great having the extra counter space and storage space, too. My only wish is that the top were made of something easier to keep clean than the black granite, which shows every crumb and seems to stain easily. Still, the cherry wood matches my cabinets, so the island looks almost built-in to a casual glance (and yet can be shoved out of the way for mopping or large projects).
The instructions for the cart were great, very clear and easy to understand. you definitely need two people to assemble. The granite top was easy to install although the extra support parts did not fit into the dowels of the cart in the back but we placed the granite on top of the cart and believe me it is not going anywhere it is so heavy. The cart is well constructed and my granite piece is beautiful-well worth the money spent.
Needed a little extra storage in kitchen this works great. Easy to put together. One flaw the top had a chip in it, I contacted Overstock and they promptly got me a new top. It also had a very small chip in it but not noticeable. Overstock jumped into overdrive and sent a whole new cart which I refused delivery of as the original was fine I had just mentioned it. They ended up giving me a small refund which was fine.
Keep your box until the thing is assembled, which in my case took hours then several days waiting for pieces! There were several pieced that needed to be replaced. The company website allows you to request new pieces but does not ask for or allow you to upload pictures. The company then emailed asking for pictures of the damaged goods, which I had to send 2 at a time because they cannot accept larger emails, and a picture of the box. They sent the parts promptly after back and forth and requiring pictures of the damaged pieces. The pieces arrived in about a week. The replacement pieces were not all great either. The assembly instructions are clear. Everything fit together well in general. The holes for the top granite piece did not line up at all and didn't want to drill new ones and break the granite top. However, it is heavy enough to just sit on top without screwing it into the unit. You need 2 people to put it together. It is heavy. It is also narrow and a bit shaky if bumped it could fall. I have dogs and worry about them jumping up on it and pushing it over. Even with the wheels locked it teeters. It does look very nice and has lots of space inside. The towel holder and spice rack are nice as well as the paper towel holder on the other side. All in all it is a good cart and looks nice. Just wish it was more sturdy.
Very elegant look and I received a lot of compliment, although my husband complained a little a bit during assembly as he is the one who did the job :-) but I really did not think it was that hard to put everything together. I'm very happy with the buy.
This is a great piece of furniture. We needed a cart to move items from the Kitchen to the dining room when we have parties. Twice we bought carts that ended up being useless for that purpose. The wheels did not roll well, or the hot plates damaged the wood despite of having a pad on top, etc. This cart is made of solid wood, matches our cherry cabinets in the kitchen nearly perfect, the wheels roll effortless and the stone top is perfect for any hot plates. One drawback is that the unit needs nearly total assembly, including the drawers for example. Initially I thought this was going to take me for ever and be frustrating as I am usually not good at these things. Well, the instructions are extremely clear and I had the entire thing all set in about 30 minutes, without having to redo anything.
I love this thing. I have had for for a couple years now and its still like new, even through all the crap I put it through! Great sized storage and nice sized counter top. The granite isn't the best quality but hey, it's cheap granite! And it works! I even put two adhesive hooks on the side under the spice rack to hold 2 pan lids! It's got lots of storage! I absolutely love this thing!
