I bought the cart early in January. It arrived and since my husband was out of the country I had an experienced cabinet maker asemble it. When he was done, the front doors turned out to be warped in opposite directions and the shelving and sidewalls were so weak that we concluded the thing was unusable, The casters are plastic and very flimsy. The next day we put the thing on the curb next to the garbage can. To our surprise somebody took it along before the garbage truck arrived, I wish them well. They do not deserve this.
This cabinet was a great price, but a little difficult to put together. My biggest complaint, though, is that the drawer does not slide open or shut easily, and requires some effort to use. The doors below do not line up exactly, either. My hubby thinks the shelves are not strong enough for storage, but for the tupperware and light things I am storing there, they will be fine. Very basic piece, but functional.
Very nice, went together easily. One of my complaints is how they mounted the shelf inside - it was very flimsy and touchy to set things on. We modified the shelf holders with a couple pieces of 1/2" oak strips and then drilled and glued the moveable metal pegs into the two oak pieces. This makes an adjustable shelf with stability. The color was a light color and fit in wonderfully with my cupboards. I do wish all four wheels locked instead of just the front two.
I am using this as a microwave cart and it works just fine. The color is a little darker than shown, but I do like it and will complement the cabinetry when refinished. It is definitely a two-person job to assemble if your DIY ability is limited as is mine and my husband's. It took about thirty minutes to complete the assembly. We did have a minor problem with the doors staying shut, but my husband fixed is easily by adding a piece of felt behind the magnet on the doors. Overall, I am very pleased with the cart.
We purchased this kitchen cart for the same reason as most folks - for more storage and counter space. In that end, it delivers. The assembly took about an hour, but was relatively straightforward. The biggest disappointment is the shelf setup; the pins they provide to hold up the shelf are rounded, and the notch is square, so putting anything off weight on the shelf has the whole thing come down. We plan to go to a hardware store to find more appropriate pins for the shelf design. But overall it's a great looking piece of furniture and once the shelf is stable, it holds all our tupperware and other food storage pieces with room to spare.
I am thinking of getting this trolly mainly to store my garbage trash under within the two doors. Can you remove the shelf and trolly will still hold together. It will be very lightly used. Always would like dimensions on the just the drawer part if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Once this is together it is a great item....GETTING it together is another story. The previously mentioned misalignment is not exactly true. If you plan the putting together its easier. It takes some thinking and the diagram, I found, was not to be so self explanatory. However, once done and all in place....great piece....I love it!
First, one of the doors simply did not fit. It had to be cut down to do so. Second the inner shelf is entirely composite and very shoddy and broke upon attempted installation. Finally, to get the doors to close the hardware had to be actually retooled and the shelf holders cut down to allow for the doors to be flush.This is a pretty cabinet -- but looks are deceiving. It was too much trouble to send back and we have it working now -- but I would not recommend this product.
once assembled its a good cabinet. rolls well on hard floor.may be hard to assemble! you may need a good set of screwdrivers.so e of the pre drilled holes were too small making it hard to turn the screws with the cheep drivers i havethank you
The cart is attractive, a nice size and very funtional. It will give me the additional storage and work space I need. The top doors and drawer are solid wood and nicely finished. The sides, back and shelves are thinner, not solid wood, thus not at sturdy as I would have liked. I won't be storing heavy items inside the cart. Assemby was relatively easy, but if you're someone who needs step by step instructions laid out carefully, you might have a harder time. Only issue I had was one of the doors did not hang exactly right, so is harder to shut and will need to be sanded or slightly planed to fit exactly. In summation, a good value for the money and an attractive asset to the kitchen.
