This product gave us about what we were expecting - not the best piece of furniture around, but certainly good enough for a temporary fix for lack of counterspace while renting. The assembly is a little challenging and took a bit longer than I hoped (2-3 hours total). The instructions are probably a bit too simple - it took me a few reads to really be able to understand what they were trying to convey by pictures and just a few words. Once assembled, the piece is pretty decent. The inside shelves and drawers are sturdy and the countertop adds the much-needed space we were looking for. My only complaint is that the screw holes are not perfectly aligned, so the front doors sit just slightly unevenly and don't always latch correctly to the magnet. This causes them to pop open if the cart is shifted or bumped. I can get them to latch correctly if I push down or up on the corner of the door. There were also a few dings in the finish as though the package may have been dropped during shipping.

Purchased this for my son's apartment in Amherst, MA. Took it up to him on Saturday and helped him put it together. I'm not happy with the quality of this item. The box look like it had been previously opened and the wrapping and Styrofoam was all in pieces. No damage to the contents, but the instructions were not easily readable and the hardware packaging was faded so we had a hard time figuring out what the letter indications were. The pre-drilled holes in some places were to big, especially for the wooden dowels and some of the screws striped easily, even though we were not using power tools and being very careful not to over tighten them. The sturdiness of the cart when we finished was not as solid as I would have liked. I would not recommend this product.
Great price for a good product

For the price, it's great. It expands our small kitchen counter space and is mobile when we need it to be. The front two wheels have brakes, which is handy. However, for one thing, it's extremely hard to assemble without help. It's possible, just extremely hard. Additionally, as others had mentioned, the pre-drilled holes don't always result in everything lining up. It's almost like the whole cabinet is a little cattywampus. If I hold it perfectly square, the doors line up and the drawers are easy to open, but when it sits by itself, it leans a little and throws everything off. But like I said, a great price for an otherwise great cabinet.
Excellent item, looks great!

Although other reviews here and the assembly instructions suggest it be put together by 'at least' two people, I have no choice and put it together myself (I'm a senior citizen!) in about 4 hours. My main problem with assembly was the lack of clarity in mounting the hinges on the cabinet doors. I did the left door SIX TIMES (hence stripping the threads on one of the hinges!) before I got it right. When you look at the piece from the front, the doors and drawers do not align in a nice rectangular fashion; they are the tiniest bit askew. I don't think there's anything I can tighten to change that and will have to live with it. I left off the towel bar and the casters because I am keeping the piece in my diningroom (just on the other side of my kitchen passthrough) but kept them in case I change my mind some day. My package was missing all shelf supports. I had 6 from putting bookcases together, so I've been able to mount one shelf but will have to purchase more shelf supports to mount the other one. There is more storage capacity in this piece than I was expecting.
Not great but not bad.

Take the free shipping out of the price and you may still be getting less than what you paid for. Assembly wasn't hard - laid out all the parts and fasteners before putting it together. Caster mounting could be better, holes didn't line up. Reinforced the holes with plastic wall anchors to make it sturdier. Had to work on getting the doors, drawers and magnetic catches to line up. People that have seen it don't believe the price was so low, i.e. it's looks good.
Gave me all the extra space I needed!
Darina from Gahanna, OH
Love the cart! Sturdy and serves it's purpose well. Quick delivery! Only problem I found were the assembly instructions. It took me a very long time to assemble. The hardware was not clearly marked and could have been. The tops and bottoms of the crossbars were hard to determine and they could have been marked as well. The hinges were a little tough to figure out but I managed. Overall I am completely satisfied!
Definitely not bad for the price

Looks nice now that it's together. The instructions were a little difficult to follow on some of the steps. Top had a nick, but not really noticeable. The back panels don't fit on together, so we had to use a box cutter to trim one side down. Good thing it's the back, because the cuts aren't so pretty. Absolutely perfect for a small office kitchen, but wouldn't use in my own home. Pros: Value, color options Cons: Instruction illustrations not so detailed, back panels had to be trimmed.
Love my Island it works very well for my needs.
Rosario Ramirez from Alamosa, CO – Verified Buyer
Once I got the Island to gather it is great Pros: customer srevice is outstanding very helpful to fix the issues I had. I would order other produts again Cons: The Island was missing parts it took longer to get the parts. I think all hardware should be separate for each area. It was confusing having big and little screws to gether. not everyone has these skills. It took a while for everthing to come togethe

This is a really nice kitchen cart for the money. It took maybe an hour to put together. A few of the screws that hold the shelves up are loose, but doesn't pose a problem. It is not of the highest quality, but for the money, it is a good product!
Pam from CENTREVILLE, NB – Verified Buyer
Mostly love this cart. Mostly. Having a problem with the doors staying shut and one of the locking wheels. Also had some scratching on the drawer fronts and edges of the doors. Overall though, love the cart... looks great as our new office "kitchen" workspace. Ordering, shipping & service from Wayfair was stellar!!
