OMG!!!!! from Campbell, Tx on 09/08/2012
This island is way beyond expectations. First, it is solid wood, no particle board. The instructions are in English ( not translated English). All the parts are marked (with a sticker so there is no doubt) It tells you there will be so many screws plus "one extra" and there were. Each package of screws are marked as to what they are. The diagrams are very specific about the order to put it together. ALL THE HOLES LINED UP!!!! save one and it just took a minor adjustment. The screw holes are lined with metal to receive screw and hold in place. It was packed extremely well with each piece wrapped or covered with hard styrofoam so there was no rubbing of pieces. My husband and I put it together in about 2 hours (taking our time). There are a couple of places that kind of need 2 people but could be done with one. We put it together on top of another table for the most part so we could stand up. When finished, it is extremely sturdy, rolls easily ( husband says it has "the really good castors") and is way more that we had expected. It is at least a $500 piece of furniture. I looked at one at another store (Ta.....t) for the same money that was all particle board. Boy, am I glad I found this one. If you can't tell, we are very well pleased. Thanks again. Oh, was ordered on Tuesday, arrived on Thursday with Wayfair free shipping. Unbelievable service!!!!!

Great cart, average instructions from Houston, TX on 02/27/2011
Love this cart. I'd been looking for months for a good cart with the features I wanted at a reasonable price. Found this one and based on the other reviews, decided to order it. Keeping in mind the other reviews about the so-so instructions, I tasked my husband and 11 yo son with assembly. They put it together in about two hours. The primary comments on assembly were that the instructions weren't clear about which end was up on some of the pieces since they could begin to be assembled in either direction, and that hand held power tools are your friend. Otherwise, the casters have not given me problems as is commented in some other reviews. The quality of the pieces seems to be well above the price point for the cart. The wood does have some sort of urethane finish on it that makes the water bubble on the surface though I wouldn't necessarily test it by leaving water sitting since the cart is made from wood. The magnets for the doors hold quite well and the drawer slides seem to be snug but smooth. The shelves inside the two door sections do have three levels for height selection. A nice touch for adjusting to store different height items. The towel role removes quite easily but we haven't used it yet because the baby would love to unroll a fresh paper towel roll but it does function superbly as another towel rack. You can't have too many of those in a kitchen. The spice rack has another rod underneath for hanging towels or hooks for maybe potholders. All in all, a great buy and I would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a kitchen cart that does NOT come with wine storage.[...]

Perfect was just what I wanted! from Thornton, CO on 12/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
Having just renovated our kitchen I realized I need just a bit more cabinet & countertop space. I opted to find a kitchen cart that could double as an island. We have natural hickory cabinets and after looking at literally hundreds of carts I found this one hoping that it would look like the pictures and the finish would truly be natural and blend with our cabinets. It did! My husband was pleased that it was fairly easy to put assemble and he was impress that the quality was much better than he thought it would be given the low price in fact he said the quality was much better with real wood components than the carts we looked at that were 3 times higher in price. I am totally sold on this product it is just the right size and adds enough extra counter & storage space I need in the kitchen.

Worth every penny -- great value from Burnaby, BC on 01/10/2010 – Verified Buyer
We use this product as extra counter space and storage primarily, and food presentation (buffet-style) secondarily. For counter space, you definitely get what you pay for -- it's as large as my coffee table; but keep in mind that the rest of the island below the counter space is not as large, which, depending on what you're looking for, can be good or bad. It was good for us, as the overhang in the back leaves room for stools to pull up under. We used the side just under the paper towel holder to hang a pot lid rack -- very handy. There are other reports that the wheels don't keep the island in place, which I can't comment on, as I don't do much actual food prep on it, but I haven't had any problems with it thus far, pulling it in and out whenever I need. The storage space is also quite adequate and currently holds two large pasta pots, all my colanders and mixing bowls, a few pans, a rice cooker, and even our George Foreman Grill(tm). Better and clearer included instructions would have put this at 5/5 stars. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Product matched discription. Looks good' from Pontiac, IL on 06/03/2015 – Verified Buyer
Looks great in our camper. A problem or two with Assembly. Predrilled holes gave us the most problems. Facing the island the predrilled holes for the left back brace for the top were drilled 3/8 of an inch lower than the holes for the other rear bracket, resulting in a 3/8 in gap between top and bracket. No precision in the predrilled for shelves. Different diameter on holes. Metal holding rods keep falling out if shelves are moved or touched. Had to use wood glue to keep most from falling out when moving the island. Miner problem with lock on rollers. Overall the island, after miner adjustment by use fits our needs.
