This "island" is much better than I expected. Not that I didn't expect a very nice product based on what I was paying, however, it is a high quality piece of furniture for the price. I ordered via ebates.com and received a coupon through their website along with getting a 5% rebate for this order. Now for the goods... it arrived 4 business days after I ordered it. My husband and I put it together today in about 1 hour. If you read/follow the instructions and lay out all of the hardware prior to starting, it makes it a very painless exercise. Everything fits like a glove but if you are a novice at putting things like this together, just don't tighten everything down too tightly before you are finished. It helps with being able to maneuver connections when trying to bolt them together. The metal finish is not a shiny stainless steel... it is a brushed nickel which really goes with my stainless steel appliances much better. The butcher block top is beautifully done and matches my maple cabinets pretty closely. I cleaned the wood top with Murphy's Oil Soap and it looks great. The area where I placed the island is 7'9" x 9'6" from counter top to counter top and I have plenty of room to fully open the refrigerator door on one side to opening the dishwasher on the other side. If you have a long narrow kitchen, this piece might be a bit large and I would be sure before ordering. It is substantial in weight and packaged extremely well so to return it, it would be a nightmare after taking it out of the two boxes. Bottom line... I feel I got a really good deal on a really nice kitchen island --- I'm a very happy camper!!!
The table it sturdy and assemble. It had a few light scratches & a small dent, but nothing that bothered us. We expected it when you're shipping an item with a smooth surface like that. Overall, we got what we were expecting, it's a great value for the money, and it works perfectly for our movable kitchen island.
My daughter moved into my husband's family home, and being built in 1956, the kitchen is very small. She needed more counter space for her appliances, so we looked at many tables. After looking everywhere, we settled for this stainless steel table. We loved the ease of assembly, the extra shelf on the bottom, and that it looks great. Being that she is on a tight budget, this table was excellent. Now, her kitchen counters have more space, and the toaster oven, wine rack, and other items, that needed a place, is not crammed into the small space.
Bought for a kitchen island. Used as a large holiday coffee bar during Christmas. Everyone loved it. Now using as a kitchen island. We love it and eat breakfast on it daily. Cleans easily and very sturdy. Bottom shelf holds cooking appliances that are heavy like crockpot.
