Don't think twice, don't continue to shop around, don't contemplate quality or price point, this is an absolute best buy! It's easy to assemble (packaged functionally), the granite is high grade, the wood base is sturdy and handsome, the height and deminsions are true to size and the overall finished product will exceed your expectations. I wish all purchases could be this gratifying.

I had been looking for a granite topped kitchen cart for some time. This one is beautiful, the perfect size and height and very well made. This is my first experience with granite. I am going to apply a sealer as I think it would benefit from a better seal. The drawer does not slide in and out very well. I am looking at attaching some kind of drawer guide to remedy that. In spite of these two items, I would highly recommend this cart. It is well worth the price. I did initially receive two base units without a granite top but that was easily and quickly remedied by the overstock staff. A granite top was shipped directly from the factory. The entire cart was extremely well packaged so that there was no damage during shipping.

This kitchen cart is the best compact tool I have had. It looks elegant and amazing and has all these shelves, drawer, cutting board and even a wine rack to make serving and preparing comfortable and simple. Thanks to the wheels I can easily move it around and when serving dinner in the dining room it is also the best help provider for me.
I really like this cart. I like the granite top and the overall look. It is just what I was looking for and looks very nice in my apartment. I like the design/style of the cart and the drawer is a plus. The reasons I did not give this an excellent 5-star review are * granite top has large black marking in upper right corner- I know granite isn't perfect so this is acceptable but it's such a small piece they maybe could have built it with a less flawed peice *The screw hole for 1 leg was drilled on the wrong side - luckily my husband can fix anything and he was able to drill another hole and make it work Overall really nice and it's a keeper!

I was looking for a cart for a really long time. I wanted it to meet the following reqs: Can roll, but has lock feature Has drawer to put my knives in Wine rack Bottom shelf for large kitchen appliances Towel rack It had to look nice Couldn't break the bank Had to fit into my 250 sq ft studio It was SO Perfect. Easy to assemble. The only warning I have is teh granite top IS SOOO HEAVY. I'm a girl and put it goether myself ... there was a point where I didn't think I woudl bea ble to put the granite top on. Luckily I've been training for the Spartan race so I was strong enough. Phew!
It's quite nice, but one of the holes does not line up properly. I haven't yet resolved the problem, but it's holding together temporarily. It will require a drill to fix it. I just haven't had the time. It's very, very heavy. I live on the lower level of my building and whoever delivered it ( I don't recall if it was UPS or FedEx) left it at the top of the stairs for me to contend with by myself. I'm assuming that if a 62 year old woman could get it down the stairs, so could the delivery person!
Despite the complaints about no instructions I bought this cart. No regrets. It is an very nice cart with a good value for the price. Why did I not put an excellent down? simply put its no tan excellent quality cart nor is anything that has stapled together drawers. It is sturdy and the best choice for me as a movable microwave cart. (The caster wheels are superb!) As far as putting the cart together without instructions super easy. Use the picture from the website to get an idea how things look together) 1. open container with the wooden parts in it. take out parts and organize them to get to easily without losing the small parts. 2. place the top with drawer section top down (basically drawer would lose contents if it had any.) 3 get 4 long not attacked to a nut long screws plus 4 locking washers (raised up broken looking things) plus 4 larger washers plus the 4 long legs ready to partially install 4 set a leg so that the holes in the legs are facing the long way (points to the drawer side or back drawer side depending) 5 now that the leg is facing the right direction have the label/ bolt included in the leg face the metal bracket on the cart top) then place a locking washer first on the bolt then a long washer on the bolt then hand tighten only. 6 repeat the above until all four legs are hand tightened only (make sure each long open gap has the leg hole facing each other not the short way) 7 now take a nut (weird can looking thing) and bolt combo apart along with the wine rack shelf.) Make sure the cart is still upside down in assemble form). The wine rack shelf must be installed upside down (short slats facing the ground long rail on top)PUT the round weird looking nut with the plus (Philips) side facing up in the bottom hole of the shelf. You will need a phillips screw driver to align this if you do not place it with its bolt thread aligned with the hole the bolt will go through. Place the bolt THROUGH THE LOWEST (when set upside down) leg hole. had tighten (loose with the Allen wrench (included with the shelf)) 8 repeat on other side of wine rack rail. then repeat the other side of wine rack. 9 repeat the same install process with the bottom shelf (flat slats not angled) 4 bolts four nuts all hand tightened. after the cart has all 4 legs, the wine rack, and the bottom shelf all installed, tighten the bolts in random order (crisscross and vary up and down) DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN USE ONLY a few fingers to make sure its tight with the allen wrench) 10 once it is tightened (double and triple check) install the caster wheels (put two locking wheels the short side with the included handle (the holes on the short side of the top's side) The WHEELS Should be forced in until you feel a pop. 11 flip the cart over. install the cart hand (two round pieces, the last two long bolts, locking washers and regular large washers. (Do this by not tightening the rounded supports (holes facing each other ) until both are installed and you wiggle the handle inside the holes. Tighten. 12 put small handle on the drawer small bolts and the handle tighten 13 go over the ENTIRE cart and re-tighten every thing ___DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN_ SNUG ONLY 14 with a hammer tap in the last two pieces of metal. they are pegs that fit in the short side of the cart to prevent the granite for sliding off. make sure the pegs are in enough so the top doesn't wobble 15 get help to place the marble top in (its easier to align that way)
This kitchen cart was not too difficult to put together. I am 92, was 91 when I constructed this item. The directions were easy to follow. I only needed help to place the granite top and to put the casters on. My neighbors assisted me in this. Looks very nice in my kitchen.
You really can't beat the price for this cart. It is stylish and very practical. I use it as a microwave table, and have my wines in the compartment below. Originally, I was dissapointed that the "granite" part of it came cracked in two (although it was all neatly packed). I give overstock.com credit for how they handled the situation. Instead of inconveniencing me by having me send back that heavy piece of rock, they simply sent me a new part very quickly. Definitely worth the purchase, and the service was awesome.
I ordered this cart in lieu of a butcher's block, due to the difference in price. It is sturdy and serves the purpose well. A good value for the price.
