I use this for my "kitchen toys". Currently I have my stand mixer, food processor, crockpot, steamer, ice cream maker, food saver, a le press system, air popcorn popper and a few odds and ends all comfortably housed on the cart. It's stationary in my kitichen, and I really like it. I also have a big griddle hanging on the back with an s hook. I'm happy with the purchase and how it looks in my newly remodeled kitchen.
This did require assembly, but the college student was able to complete the task without difficulty. This shelf unit was perfect for the kitchen closet in the new apartment, as there are no shelves below 5 foot. This finish is not silver, it is a brown. There are pieces of plexiglass for each shelf; nice touch so small items will not fall through. The second shelf has sides, more of a basket, but that may prove beneficial also. Very pleased with this unit.
Cart arrived in a timely manner. Hubby had it put together quickly. Heavy duty construction and rolling ability make this perfect for storing kitchen electrics while not in use! I'm sure there are many other uses, but this is most important for my collection of kitchen toys!
