This kitchen cart had easy to follow directions but was extremely time consuming to put together. I would recommend two people putting this together. The material it is made out of is very sturdy. I keep the leaf up on the cart all the time because I need the extra space and it fits perfect in my small kitchen. This cart was extremely helpful when I made my christmas cookies and doing daily cooking tasks. There is a large storage cabinet on the bottom which could fit two kitchen aid mixers. The middle space is open and holds my large crockpot and a few cookbooks and the top drawer is large as well. The knife holder on the side is useless in my opinion. I do not like having knives out like that but for someone who does not have another knife holder it might be useful. Overall this is a good product for the money for a small kitchen.

Originally I was going to get a stock cabinet, then I saw this on line which had the cabinet and counter top all in one. Very satisfied with the style and the roominess of the compartments. White finish of the cabinet is so nice as well as the finish of the wood top.

I have a small apartment with a small kitchen. My kitchen has one drawer so of course I needed another drawer. This was great for my additional counter space and drawer. I have my microwave on top and trash bags and soda and water and even my cat food underneath in cabinets. I get many uses out of it and it just sits perfectly in the corner. Couldn't ask for more.

When I purchased this product, I wasn't sure it would fit, but it did perfectly. It gives me extra storage where I need it and I was able to organize things better. I did not install the knife rack because I didn't like the idea of knives so accessible to grandchildren, but everything else has been perfect.

This kitchen cart was the perfect size for my kitchen. I needed to add a bit more working space and this cart met my needs. Assembly required some skill with tools, as several holes had to be re-drilled because they did not line up. Assembly instructions were not very clear, and would be problematic for a novice. My husband, who thankfully is very handy, suggests gluing all wood to wood points of contact to increase the cart's strength. I wish there were locks on all four wheels, not just the front ones. Overall, I'm happy with the product.

The instruction are not very good. Do not put on the casters, doors or shelves until last. There is several different size screws and you have to be careful which size you are using in what place. We had to unscrew several screws at the end of the process because we used the wrong length screw in the wrong place. It takes two people to put this together since the thing is a little heavy. We had issues with the drawer not sliding in all the way, but a little sanding on the end of the pull did the trick. Becarefull of the thin wood pieces for the drawer slides. Do not put the bottom rung of the drawer slide in until after you put on the top. I did take the recommendation of one person and laid the top on the floor and place the cart on top. That helped alot. If it wasn't for the lousy instructions, I would have given it a higher rating.

This is great kitchen cart, and for a modular unit, is very sturdy. The caster wheels are wonderful, and it makes it much easier to work in my kitchen. The assembly is not extremely difficult. but some of the directions are a bit vague. All in all great value.
This cart was one of the least expensive I have been able to find. It is a good size, and sturdy. The components work properly, it looks good. I had no trouble building it by myself. The knife block is pretty useless. It is essentially a box with no bottom and a tiny slit at the top, which you are supposed to set your knives into, holding 2, maybe 3. Had I realized what it was going to be before hand - I would have turned it upside down and made it a storage place for plastic bags or something.
Everything went together perfectly except the pieces securing the top prevented the drawer from closing. We had to do a little carpentry fix to the back of the drawer (saw out two channels) so that it would close. Not the prettiest of fixes, but no one is going to see the inside back of the drawer anyway. The finished product looks terrific and adds a really nice touch to our kitchen. When we are cooking together, the extra area is a tremendous help.
As usual the Cart arrived promptly. Love doing business with Overstock. com. Very good quality on the cart but after completed decided I did not want the knife storage attachment. My son and his wife completed the cart in a little over an hour. Delighted with it.
I found this product to be of very poor quality for the price. Pieces are flimsy and the assembly instructions are pretty poor. Some of the screws provided are actually the wrong size and you will break the outer surface of the piece attempting to screw them in all the way. After two hours, I still didn't have it assembled and I'm pretty handy with this kind of stuff. I finally threw in the towel when the instrutions for securing the top to the base were actually impossible to complete. The knife block is a joke - I wouldn't store my knives in there for fear of ruining them. The top looks like it could be used for a cutting surface, but I wouldn't try it. This is the first time I will ever be returning something to Overstock.
The cart is definitely white, not like shown in the picture. Which is great because I wanted it to be white. A bit tricky do assemble, but definitely not too bad if you just look at the small details on the instructions. Looks great when assembled! Very high quality.
I bought this for my daughter as a gift. She is an engineer and good at assembling things. One thing she complained about is that there are pieces that are both labeled "3" for example, but then the directions refer to "3i". It turns out that there are a few pieces that have the same number but are actually different in some way. So you have to really look. An electric screwdriver is a must. The pieces where it said to not use an electric screwdriver were very difficult to assemble. It was particularly difficult to get the top attached because of where the screws are located and the position you have to be in to get a screwdriver in there. The holes for the pegs to hold the two shelves were too tight to get the pegs in so we had to get out the drill and enlarge the top of the hole just a little bit. Once it was all done though, it looked absolutely beautiful and I think that, for what I spent I got a very good utility cart. I would not have been able to assemble it myself though. We particularly like the drop leaf.
I found this to be very disappointing when it arrrived. One part was broken but since it was not weight bearing I simply repaired it instead of replacing it. It was missing a metal pin to hold up one of the shelves. I used something I already had here. It is incredibly, ridiculously difficult to put together with the sketchy directions. The top was the hardest to attach. The predrilled holes were not all drilled deep enough for a tight fit. Once it is all together however, it is really quite nice looking. It is white and not off-white which was fine with me. The top, for all its time and hassle, is very solid and good looking too.It is the perfect size for my kitchen and now that it is finally all put together, I am happy I ordered it.
I love this product. As always Overstock exceeds itself. I am always more than satisfied when I order from Overstock. This product just wheels around my kitchen so I can work on it in various places. Thank you once again Overstock!!!!!!!
The cabinet is a good size, white not ivory in color, but ridiculously hard to put together. I didn't have a problem w/ broken parts, however I was missing two pegs. I'll see if I can get a couple sent to me. Overstock.com is pretty good about that stuff. If not I'll e-mail the manufacturer. We'll see how long the piece lasts.
