Savannah Kitchen Cart is constructed of solid and engineered wood in a white finish. This kitchen cart features a 7mm stainless steel top, antiqued bronze hardware, two storage drawers and heavy-duty locking casters. This traditionally styled cart compliments both urban and rural decors. Use as a cart when needed and as a kitchen work-station otherwise. The food preparation surface and convenient storage makes it a workhorse for busy homemakers, entertainers, bakers and cooks. Perfect for parties and get- togethers, the cart also doubles as a bar for serving beverages and refreshments.
I'd been looking at this island for a long time. We had another one that we liked a lot, but after we moved into this house, I found that it didn't fit as well in my breakfast nook. I knew I could use that little room more often if I had a narrower island in there, but I still wanted the open shelf storage. I kept this one in my Overstock cart for quite a while and finally bought it even though it didn't have any reviews. It went on sale and I had a coupon, though of course today I see that the price has been lowered again. Sigh. Anyway, I thought I'd write a review and maybe help one of my fellow shoppers.
The island arrived the other day, and my husband put it together with a minimum of fuss yesterday. I was nervous because the box looked like something had taken a bite out of it, but the island was packaged in an interior box and arrived undamaged. It is a very attractive, solid piece. Looks great in my breakfast nook. I am pretty pleased with it, and it seems to be a quality item. However, there are some inaccuracies in the description. First, the measurements are wrong. The actual measurements are (rounded to nearest quarter inch) 44 1/2" wide, 20 3/4" deep, and 35 1/2" high. The main one that is off is the width, so I wanted to point that out in case a few inches matters.
The description also states that the center shelf is adjustable. It is not adjustable: it is fixed. That was kind of a big deal to me: I kept my cookbooks on that shelf of my old island, but I couldn't stand most of them up on this shelf (I laid some on their sides, which works okay, I guess). The shelf height of both of the shelves is only 9" (and a hair), so if you have anything taller than nine inches to put on these shelves, it isn't going to fit. I used to keep a couple of my stockpots and a rice steamer on my old island, but I couldn't put them on this one (I have some wall shelves in the kitchen, so I just rearranged things). Not a big deal, but my old island was the same width and height (but much deeper, so I didn't expect that everything would fit on this smaller one), but I did think that the shelf space (height wise) would be about the same, and since the description said that the center shelf was adjustable, I wasn't too worried about it. I am using the shelves for mixing bowl sets, cookbooks, and a few pieces of shorter cookware (chili pot, two small soup pots, etc). The drawers are roomy, though not really necessary for me; I wish they were shallower to allow for more shelf space, but if you need extra drawer space, they will be useful. The interior measurements of the drawers are 16 1/2" wide x 3 1/2" tall.
Although I am disappointed that the shelf space isn't more useful--and I probably wouldn't have ordered if I'd known about the constricting shelf space--I'm not going to return it because it is still a solid, useful piece that looks great and will be plenty functional for my kitchen. I have every reason to believe that it will hold up well and continue to be practical, attractive, and useful. I am docking a star because of the description. I don't know if that came from the manufacturer or from Overstock, but there's no excuse for inaccuracies there, and I have little tolerance for mistakes in product descriptions--online customers have to rely on that information, and it ought to be correct.

I thought and thought about ordering this kitchen island and am so glad I bought it! I was worried about the width because I have a small kitchen area but it's more like around 45 -46 inches in length. And that just fit into the space perfectly! I had just redone my kitchen with white kitchen cabinets, black countertops and oiled bronzed handles. This had the oil bronzed hardware to match and the stainless top ties in with the appliances, sink, faucet! It has 2 nice big drawers that I needed for silverware and utensils! And the 2 shelves are wonderful for storage too! They look great with baskets! Everyone loves this island as much as my black granite countertop! And that says a lot!
I originally found this cart on tartet.com- purchased it and saw the exact same cart on overstock.com a few days later. I not only saved over $150 on the purchase price, but received the shipment within 1 week versus target's three week turn-around-time on this item.
Love the cart, great addition to our kitchen space.
This island is such a gem. After looking for months for a functional but classy butcher block island in my price range (>$300)...i decided to go with the stainless steel top instead of cheap look-alike butcher tops. I am so pleased, it ties in so well with other stainless products in my kitchen and works well with the wainscoating I have. the top will be a breeze to clean (as opposed to wood tops). As for assembly, it was a moderate challenge for 1 person (who had a 1 year old following my every move). Was able to finish in about 2 hours...but all pieces were in good shape and the directions were more than clear. I give this island an A!
This is a really nice solid cart. It looks great and adds a lot of additional counter space to our small kitchen. Easily rolls out of the way when not in use. I found some white baskets that fit nicely onto the shelves and it's like having several additional drawers. Looks like a much more expensive item and I've had several people compliment it and ask where I got it. Definitely recommend.
I bought this island as I had moved to an apartment with a small kitchen with very limited bench/storage space. It fits perfectly & extends my bench/working space. Went together fairly easily with help from my daughter. Definitely a two person job. The top is very heavy, so even if you can manipulate the other parts, just getting this done is for two people. It looks gorgeous. My only complaint is one of the drawers is very sticky. The metal glide is slightly bent. I just use that drawer for items I will need infrequently, as exchanging would have been more of a pain than just dealing with it. Worth more than what I paid for it. Very happy with this purchase.
I love this cart! Just did a complete kitchen remodel and chose not to have an island a permanent part of the new configuration, but I really wanted something for another work surface and midway between the stove and sink. I shopped around a lot looking for style and value. This is perfect. I love the open shelves that I use to store my Fiesta ware mixing bowls, red le creuset and vintage rolling pins.
I chose not to use the wheels that some with the cart...height is perfect!
I was shopping for over a month online for a Christmas gift to increase storage in my daughter's and her soon to be fiancÚs 1930's kitchen. They already have white cabinets, but very little storage and an empty wall. This was the perfect solution! Created " counter" space for appliances and easy access to her beautiful plates and serving bowls which stand out beautifully in a soft blue against the white. The drawers also were very much needed and they are thrilled to have more prep space for cooking that transforms to a buffet for serving. Almost purchased several other buffets online, but so glad I waited and found this perfect solution.
I purchased this cart and after putting it together the drawers do not close properly as they do not clear the surface of the cart. I contacted customer service and they said they would rectify the problem Well, they only sent me the part for one of the drawers and it still will not close completely. This is a design flaw that needs to be addressed.

I see in the description that the center shelf is adjustable, but in one of the reviews, the customer said it wasn't, that it was fixed. Can you please confirm the center shelf's adjustability?

Before I order this, I wanted to know the true color of the cart. It looks almost like a greyish-cream color in the picture. I wanted more of a bright white cart. Is it true white?wilmygirl13 on Feb 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

If I wanted to substitute a piece of granite (left over from the slabs used for my countertops) for the stainless steel top could I do that?annieway on Oct 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question annieway. The Savannah White Kitchen Cart is meant to be assembled with the stainless steel top. Any modification to the item voids the manufacturer’s warranty. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 31, 2013
