Cottage Microwave C onart
J from Murfreesboro, TN – Verified Buyer
Very sturdy, rolls easily, assemblies quickly and parts fit together easily and sturdily. We have recently downsized and the small size is great as I have limited counter space and I store it in my walk-in pantry and roll it out to use. I use it for my counter top convection oven. I am planning to order a second for my Kitchenaid Mixer which is too large to keep on my countertop and is too heavy for me to lift and move to use it. I definitely recommend this cart.
Marie from Millbrae, CA – Verified Buyer
This cart was easy to put together (i'm 67). It is attractive, functional, and stores my 3 appliances that I use everyday. It arrived in perfect shape from Wayfair. I have used their service before and the items I bought were a great value, and I appreciate the free shipping too.
Extremely Flimsy Wheels - FATAL FLAW
Ken from NoHo Ca – Verified Buyer
The cart assembles quickly, looks good and, with one fatal exception, is sturdy. The fatal flaw are the wheels and the pieces of cheap plastic into which the wheel shaft is inserted. The wheel shaft receptacle is made of flimsy plastic and the wheel shafts do not "click" into place like they do on other products (like office chairs) that use metal receptacles. I suppose the weight of the cart is supposed to keep the wheels in place. Anyway, the cart moves great on hard floors, but the VERY FIRST TIME I moved the cart from a hard floor to carpet, the cheap plastic that the wheels are made of just broke into pieces, sending my microwave flying off the cart! The wheels are completely ruined and the cart is now just a shelf. Lukily, my microwave landed on carpet and survived intact. Of course, the boxes got picked up with today's trash, so we'll see how responsibly this is handled by Wayfair and the manufacturer and I will add to this post (if it is allowed).
What I Expected
Kathryn from Crystal, MN – Verified Buyer
This is a great cart for the price. It's solid but obviously not amazing craftsmanship. I am using in my kitchen to set cookbooks and my microwave on. Works great. Looks quality. I left the black wheels off becuase I thought they made it look cheaper and I don't really need to move it around! Good buy for the price!
James from Waverly, VA – Verified Buyer
Wow, something made in the USA. And quality. All wood, easy to assemble and looks great, too. Bought his for a cottage with a small kitchen and it works wonderfully. Gives us extra shelving as well as holding the microwave and easy to move with casters or stay stationary with the locks in place.
AJ from Almond, NY – Verified Buyer
I was looking for something that would serve two purposes. I needed a place to put my microwave but also needed a bookcase for my cookbooks. This worked perfectly on both counts! It was not hard to assemble and is very sturdy. I'm very happy with this purchase.
My Baking Center!
Sharon from Arlington, VA – Verified Buyer
Love this cart, I'm using it as my baking center with my heavy stand mixer on top and mixing bowls and baking supplies on the shelves below. I will screw in some cup hooks to hold pot holders and spatulas. Also will add a handle on the end under the top to match my cabinet handles. I just wheel it into my tiny kitchen closet when not in use and it saves counter and cabinet space! Easy to assemble even though no assembly instructions were included in the box, because of the lack of instructions it did not get 5 stars.
FIT THE SPOT PERFECTLY
marie from Winter Garden, FL – Verified Buyer
I got it for the studio apartment on my property and it fits perfectly and with the butcher block top it adds a little more counter space too. I had looked other places for something like this and had come up empty
Louise from Elgin, IL – Verified Buyer
We just receive this product and it took very little time to put together. I have limited space in the kitchen so I use it with my Keruig Coffee maker and on the rack's I have the coffee cups, and all my K-Cups.
Love my cart with the butcher block top.
Charlene from Pensacola, FL – Verified Buyer
This cart is the perfect size for my kitchen. I use the shelves to store my everyday pots and items. The wheels are sturdy and will also lock in place. Is attractive and works well for cutting vegetables up. Thank you for the perfect product for my home.
