This rolling cabinet fits our needs perfectly. We've stored our coffee maker and juicer in the closed cabinet, with paper napkins and Kleenex on the open shelf. I like that the shelf is open in back as well, as I can place other objects, e.g., cellphone, on the back side. Everything works as it should: drop leafs drop or are open; cabinet doors stay closed with a magnet; wheels roll. The cabinet is gorgeous solid wood with wood veneer sides and back. Thanks to the online video, my partner and I were able to assemble this in 4 hours, which is a record for us! Only missing one screw, and we were able to substitute with a screw we already owned.
About half the price of any other decent island when it went on sale. I love this thing even though I was hesitant adding it to my kitchen. The color is wonderful and it is well made. I try to buy rubberwood; which is what the top is, whenever possible for it's durability and sustainability.Adds tons of storage and great prep space next to our stove.The drop-leaf is an added plus.The spice rack is not huge but it is perfect for my most used spices. There is nothing I dislike about this. The assembly was straightforward. It did take a little patience as I put it together myself. The top is very heavy especially to mount but that is what I wanted. Something with a sturdy feel to it. I would definitely recommend this purchase.
I love it! This is a beautiful, high quality piece of furniture that has all the features I was looking for: cabinet, deep drawer, drop leaf, end shelves, granite top. Size had been a challenge for me as well but this was just right. Only 3 drawbacks that I can identify: (1) It was very challenging to assemble - tons of pieces. Had to hire a handyman for the job but he got it done in about 2 hrs. (2) the factory "distressing" that is done to the finish is way too uniform to actually look distressed. But I got over that. (3) once the drop leaf was raised, I have not been able to lower it. Still working on that one. I would definitely recommend this kitchen island, just know what you are getting into.
