We feared the worse after reading reviews that this was difficult to assemble, but our experience was excellent. All pieces were clearly labeled and the instructions were well written and easy to follow. Took us about 40 minutes to assemble and that was a casual speed while watching football and chasing the dog to reclaim a part or two. The stainless steel top looks great and cleans easily. The drawers, doors, and retractable surface area all fit very well. The size and measurements listed were quite accurate so it fits in to our existing kitchen decor.
