Great addition to a kitchen
Anna from Wilkesboro, NC – Verified Buyer
This kitchen cart has been a great addition to our kitchen. It's very attractive, and has added a good prep space. We actually have a lot of counter space already in our kitchen, so we didn't buy this to use for prep, but it's ended up being the space I choose to use for prep - since it is a free-standing cart, it gets better light and is situated better for the cooking areas. With the wheels on, it sits an inch or so higher than the rest of my counters, which is more comfortable for food prep for me. It looks great in our kitchen - it goes well with white cabinets and light brown counters. The storage space underneath is also convenient - I was worried about having exposed shelves (I thought I wanted cabinets, but couldn't find one in this larger size), but the display of my larger pots actually looks nice. The drawers are a bit shallow; I keep boxes of plastic bags in one of them and a tall box of sandwich bags actually doesn't fit standing straight up. This is not a negative for me, but it is something to keep in mind when sizing the drawers. I didn't really want wheels on our kitchen cart, but since we assembled it ourselves, I'm pretty sure we could have left the wheels off and it still would have looked fine. However, the wheels have a locking mechanism, so we left them on and locked them in place. Overall, we are very happy with this cart, and would recommend it!
Solid cart, assembly required
Robyn Hoyle from Charlottesville, VA
Really satisfied with the quality of the cart. It's finish is lovely and for what I paid, well worth it. Be prepared to spend 5 hours or so on the assembly. The directions are mostly clear, but I found myself (an engineer) having to backtrack because I had connected pieces incorrectlybackward. One piece labeled 'E' in the instructions was labeled 'L' in the packaging. Have a drill standing by to pre-drill the drawers for the wood screws. The wood is so hard that this is a necessary step.
Great functional product.
LILY from WOODSIDE, NY – Verified Buyer
This kitchen island is convenient and fits perfectly in my small kitchen. The description is exact. Easy to install. I love the option of not installing the wheels. I don't want it moved around. The only reason this product didn't receive 5 stars is because one of the drawers slides too easily and bangs into the cart causing all the flatware to make a commotion every time I shut the drawer. The other drawer glides snuggly and isn't noisy at all. If there's a way to fix this fast sliding drawer, please let me know how.

I purchased this cart for my kitchen since I currently have hardly any counter space and needed somewhere to be able to prep food as well as hold kitchen utensils, pots, pans and small appliances.The table is well built, solid wood and study. Its quite large and tall - at the same height as little bit of counter space I do have.I was able to put this together myself, which took me a little over an hour. Had someone been helping me, I'm sure it would have gone quicker - but doing it solo is manageable, albeit clumsy. The two complaints I have are when they were drilling the holes for the screws on one side of the drawer, they were in the wrong area - too far down. One hole was literally in the middle of the groove where you slide the bottom piece of the drawer. So as a result the table is complete without one drawer while I wait for a replacement piece. The other is the casters do not screw in, they just slide in, so anytime I had to lift the cart, they'd come falling out.
Great island for the price!

I set this up alone in about one hour with minimal swearing ( that's really good for me ;) ) PROS: Nothing was scratched, everything was there, most pieces were labeled and the ones that were not were easy to identify. Instructions were easy. Overall easy assembly. Finished product looks really nice and feels sturdy! CON: really bad smell first 24 hrs. But mostly faded by day 2 . Overall I would recommend this and buy again.
Looks great and good value
Anne from Reston, VA – Verified Buyer
Very pleased we purchased this. A few glitches in assembly, but we've come to expect that with furniture to be assembled. We were able to work thru the glitches and have a great looking cart with good storage. Very easy to move, drawers not as small as expected. Comparable to a similar cart we saw for $400.
Kathleen from Waynesboro, VA – Verified Buyer
This kitchen cart is beautiful. My sister and I put it together in about an hour. I don't think I'd have been able to do it alone because, even with 4 hands, there were times when it was difficult to balance it. But, all that said, I love it. Well crafted, high quality. If I'm ever in the market for other pieces I'll definitely check out this line.
Pamela from Louisville, KY – Verified Buyer
Thrilled when opened box. ALL WOOD - even drawer bottom, sides and back. Took me about 1-1/2 hours to assemble myself - everything included (no missing parts or screws) except phillips screwdriver. Heavy and good quality. They need to add that middle shelf is adjustable, not fixed. All wood, easy to assemble
Wonderful product that was exactly as advertised.
Barbara from Woodstock, GA – Verified Buyer
The Kitchen Cart is great for storing extra appliances and kitchen cookware and versatile enough to move wherever it is needed or placed in an out of the way area when not in use as a preparation area. I really enjoy this cart and am glad I purchased it to round out my kitchen. Great value, durable surface
Sheila from Columbus, OH – Verified Buyer
I love this cart. Since I am elderly, I had a friend put it together for me. It went together very smoothly, taking bout 90 minutes to assemble.
