Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to assemble and great quality!! This kitchen cart is wonderful. All you have to do is take it out of the box and screw on the wheels. The quality is great-- especially for the price! I could not recommend more. I only wish they made another one in a larger size! I have 3 because I love it so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and attractive Nice, solid and attractive. It was easy to put together and doesn't take up a lot of space in my kitchen. Just what I needed. I also like the ability to fold up if I ever need/want to store or move it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever When u don’t have a lot of room and not enough counter space this is awesome I always have it open I serve plates on it since it has wheels I use it for my cutting board next to the stole so I don’t have to travel all around the kitchen I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Kitchen Cart I love my new kitchen cart. Maybe eventually I will keep it folded between uses, but right now it's open in all it's glory. This cart looks so much better in real life than in any photos you see on line, something that can't often be said of a lot of products that look great on line and are disappointing when you finally see them. I considered buying this cart for quite a while, and the July discount offer pushed me to go ahead with my purchase. The price even without a discount is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Kitchen Cart I was looking for a kitchen cart to put under a hanging pot rack. I originally wanted something with cabinets and a drawer but couldn’t find anything in my area. I decided to take a chance on this folding kitchen cart and ended up loving it! It fits perfectly in our space and has the added bonus that my pot lids fit in perfectly in between the shelving slots. I will likely take another reviewers suggestion to add S hooks for hanging storage. I chose to not use the wheels for more stability (they were a bit slippery on my hardwood floor) and a slightly lower height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This cart is so well made and easy to assemble. It folds open, the heavy block top requires two hands to place and the wheels are screwed in. It is beautiful and sturdy. I love how it looks and functions. Do not hesitate to buy this cart. It is top notch quality. The container store shipped it for free and it arrived in two days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What We Needed!! We needed extra counter space in our small kitchen and this island is the perfect size. We can walk around the kitchen and still make really good use of this extra space with the cart. It matches the cabinets as well. This will help with storage as well to get to those items you don't want to put away in the cabinets. Great purchase and picking it up from our local store was a breeze!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cart, Fold it away when you don't need it! I love this cart! I don't have as much counter space in my kitchen as I would like, and we aren't in a position to do any major renovations or permanent changes at the moment. The fact that I can use this cart to prepare dinner and then simply fold it away is wonderful! It fits perfectly in the corner when out of use, and it's very easy to pull out and unfold. The butcher block is seriously heavy, which means that you have to handle it carefully when it's in the folded-up position, otherwise it will tip over. But I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for additional prep area in a kitchen with limited space, and it's attractive enough that I would leave it out if I had the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cart, which has a nice, sturdy wooden block top, comes almost completely assembled save for the casters, which take about three minutes to screw in. It's perfect for a kitchen that needs extra counter space, and was a perfect fit for an unusual nook in my NYC apartment kitchen. Construction is solid and it easily folds down if you need to get it out of the way. So glad I found it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific for a Small Kitchen! This cart perfectly suited my needs! I love to cook and have a very tiny kitchen, so this gave me the extra storage and counter space that I needed! Having the wheels adds to that in case it is ever in the way. Not only that, the cart's prep surface is super convenient. I definitely will be keeping this once I'm out of my tiny apartment. My two complaints are the surface isn't quite stable. It wobbles, but that could just be my particular product. (Double check.) The other is I wish there were color options for the wood, like a cherry color. Regardless, completely worth it! Definitely a must have if you need more space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition if Short on Counter Space! I purchased this cart after moving to a new apartment with limited kitchen counter space. I've been using the cart for about two months now and absolutely love it. I find it more useful than stationary counters as I can use the cutting surface and shelf storage anywhere around the kitchen or dining room. If you cut directly on the "wood" surface marks will show up, but are only really noticeable when you look closely. Also, pay attention to the package weight. It was a lot heavier than I was expecting when it was delivered and I had no one around to help me carry it up the stairs. But once it is up on its wheels it is very easy to push around. Installation was a breeze. If you want it to stand upright in the folded position you have to position the wheels perpendicular to the cart so it won't tip over. Overall, these things are not deal breakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive, functional addition to kitchen. Having an old kitchen short on counter space, I am always looking for a way to increase my work surface. Admired this cart in the store and purchased as a gift from me to me! Ordered from home and picked up at my local store two days before Christmas and the process was quick and easy. Assembly consisted of removing from box, attaching casters and unfolding. The wood top is beautiful and substantial....I guess you could cut and chop right on it but not wanting to mark the surface in any way, I still put a clear glass cutting board on top. Underneath shelves are great for holding kitchen tools, small appliances or other kitchen necessities. The top shelf has more depth than the bottom and would probably accommodate a stand mixer, juicer or other taller appliance. The casters move smoothly, locking mechanism is a little difficult at first but seemed better after a few tries. Cart still seems to move some after locking but that could be my old house, uneven floors. I placed it into a space between my counters and stove....perfect fit and makes it easy to prep food and go right onto stove or into oven. Very happy with this purchase, the ordering and pick-up process and with the discount I received, the price was more than fair. This is an item I will use and enjoy for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value ever I purchased this cart because the kitchen in my new townhome is short on counter space. I really haven't used it yet, but it looks like a quality product especially for the price. I envision even using it as a little kitchen island or even buffet. It rolls incredibly smoothly and has a really sleek, sturdy look. Can't wait to put it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and useful design. Great when you need a little extra work space or to use next to the BBQ. I love the way it folds up for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty cart This is an excellent kitchen cart although I have it in my very small laundry space as a flat surface to fold. The shelving will also accommodate a basket as a small hamper and space for laundry soap. I can also see pulling this cart out to do double duty as extra counter space for a house party.

Excellent quality, attractive, perfect with appliances, solid. Gives me the touch of extra space I need for storage and "doing stuff." Thrilled with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sturdy and functional I'm very pleased with this purchase. I have limited counter space in my wide galley kitchen. I have been pulling this out and putting it in the center of the kitchen when I'm cooking big meals. I may just start leaving it out all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit & Size I cannot believe how perfect this kitchen cart fit in the space that I needed it for. I have my Omega Juicer, as well as my Breville food processor on top an there's still room for more if I chose to. The additional shelves are great as well. Truly pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commercial Quality Wow. I purchased this over the internet without knowing how heavy this was, and was bowled over by the very durable construction. Without the wheels (which are heavy-duty casters), this would not be an easy thing to port around, but as it is, it is perfect. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional, Sturdy and Attractive! I'm so pleased with this cart! It shipped quickly, was very well packed, easy to set up - just screw on the wheel, tighten with the 'wrench' provide, lift the butcher block top up and you're ready to go! This cart is attractive, well constructed and more sturdy than I thought it might be. The butcher block is a solid inch thick and beautifully finished. I like it so well, I can't wait to show it off. I actually bought this for my patio. I'll definitely find a nice cover to protect it in off-season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! Great cart! Saw it on display, then ordered it online. Picked it up today (great service for online pick up as well!) and just got it put up in the kitchen, and love it :) Prefect size, and think it is high quality construction and design. The rubber wood top looks like real wood, but I'm sure will actually wear much better. Very easy set up. Looks great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from creating extra space with flair I bought this cart for the purpose of creating additional counter space in the tiny kitchen of my rental but it is also useful in my new home as a movable kitchen island as well as serving cart for the dining room. I love the portability since I can move it wherever I want it at the time with ease and have the option to tuck it away neatly and with minimal space usage if I wanted to but honestly, I never do since I love having extra room and it blends in well with a variety of decor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Island/Cart The wood top is substantial and very attractive. We bought 2 of these carts and they are the perfect height next to our Viking stove. They are so well built that they look like real furniture and not a folding cart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy set up take it out of the box, screw on the wheels and lift to set up. it's that easy; even comes with its own wrench to tighten the bolts. cart is sturdy with a locking mechanism to secure everything. butcher block top is made of "rubber wood" - whatever that it is. shall prove useful as right now i am putting hot pans from the oven onto a kitchen chair as i have limited counter space in my apartment kitchen.

Community Q&A

Are the shelves adjustable in height?

Asked by: Kay1
No they are not. Slightly frustrating, but you could add a small in there assuming it has wide feet.

How many inches are between middle shelf and top shelf AND the bottom shelf and middle shelf?

I'd like to store a kitchen aid mixer & a vitamix on the middle or bottom shelf and what to make sure these will fit before I purchase. Thanks!
Asked by: crystal09
I have both a Vitamin with the 8 cup container and Kitchen Aid mixer. The Vitamin will not fit on the top shelf unless you have the shorter container. The mixer will fit on the top shelf. There are 18" from middle to top and 11" from bottom to middle.

Using Butcher Block?

Can you use the butcher block top for chopping or should a cutting board still be used? It looks like it might have a finish on it....which would mean probably not a usable surface to cut on. Would like to know, it seems like an excellent cart either way!

There is a finish on the top.

Could you use this as a microwave cart?

Asked by: DollyD
You could, although I think two of this cart's best features are the great prep space provided by the butcher block top and the ability to fold it away, neither of which you would be able to enjoy if you kept a microwave on top of it. That said, if you like the look of it, go for it!

How much does the cart itself weigh? How easy would it be to fold up and put in a station wagon?

Asked by: PennyAnnie
This cart has some weight to it. I believe it can be folded to put in a station wagon. I would suggest that you put the two wheels that lock on the short side that is opposite the towel bar. This way when you fold it, you can lift the top and push against the locked wheels. This is no more complicated than folding a good baby stroller for transport.
