This would work if you want to store easily and just need once and a while, but it is not solid enough for daily use. It does fold down really easily and was easy to assemble, but we should not have bought a foling kitchen island -- we should have bought a sold piece instead.
This folding island is perfect in our kitchen. And I loved that it was pre-assembled - we only had to fold it out in order to put it together. It seems really sturdy, and it fits in well with our kitchen décor. It is also easily moveable, so it will be perfect to use as a bar for parties. So glad I purchased this piece!
