We purchased this kitchen cart to serve as a center island My kitchen doesn't have enough counter space when I cook and bake. I cook large quantities of food and freeze it. I figured that we could roll it into the kitchen when I needed it, then roll it out when I didn't need it. However, it now stays in my kitchen. It is beautiful. It is made of solid wood! Yes I said it, SOLID WOOD!!! No veneer, and the color is sort of a mahogany. Absolutely beautiful. With regard to the assembly My husband put it together, and as he did, he commented several times at how well this piece was made. The roller have locks. On the two shelves below, the slats are also made of the same wood. The two drawers pull through on both sides. We have thoroughly enjoyed this cart. I try to keep a cutting board on top to protect the wood, but I have three Maine Coons that like the view and have insisted that I bought this for them only. So the cutting board only comes out when the cats are off the cart while I cook.
Perfect cart for our small kitchen, adding more counter space for food prep. We bought with the idea that we would use in the center of our kitchen and discovered that having it on wheels to move around as we cook was great! It was easy to put together and very solid. The butcher block top is heavy and we are using the underside for meats and the top for veggies. I have rubbed olive oil on the wood several times, letting it dry overnight and it is simply beautiful. LOVE this cart and highly recommend, if the size works for your kitchen space. Oh, and what a great value!!
This was exactly what we needed for extra storage and work space in our new-to-us tiny kitchen. Excellent product for the price. The only complaint my husband had was with the directions, that being that the drawings were not clear enough on some of the screws and he had to remove some and replace with the correct ones. Otherwise, it went together fine. (Over 40 eyesight needs larger/darker print on the directions.) Features - a towel rack/handle on the one end. We chose to use this to hold a roll of paper towels, so as to get the roll off our countertop. Would look very nice with your hand towels as another option. Have not really found a use for the spice rack on the other end, due to the design of that part, and the spice bottles I have are too small for that purpose. I am sure something will find a home there in time. There are three drawers. I am choosing to put extra cooking utensils in one, food storage bags in another, and hot pads in the third. In the main compartment I have placed a slow cooker, mixing bowls, cutting boards, cookie sheets, and a few smaller items. The wood top is very nice and the expanding capability of it with the drop leaf is very helpful to me when preparing meals with the limited amount of permanent counter space in our kitchen. We had no problems with shipping. The product is well packaged in multiple boxes and then in a large exterior box encompassing all. So unless there is a huge gouge in the exterior box, I would not be concerned at all if there is a small tear, rip, or minor crease in the outer packaging. The package is extremely heavy (over 100 pounds), so it will be helpful if you have the delivery person bring it inside for you (if you are home when it arrives) or if you have a second person available to help you maneuver it inside your door. All-in-all, I think you will be very pleased with this cart once you have it assembled.
I feel like I am on a cooking show when I use my cart. It is a two fold item. It serves as my kitchen island and food prep station. Only thing it came unassembled and I figured it out, it looks great. I ran into a problem when putting the top board on, the nails where not long enough to screw from the bottom up. I had to get some longer ones from home depot. We rolling now in my brand new kitchen.
