InterMetro Butcher Block Top is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great part of a practical kitchen island We needed a kitchen island that would be good for food prep (very little counter space in an NYC apt), storage, not to big, and movable. Intermetro let us design something that is all 4. We are so happy with this thing! The Butcher Block top is great. Cleans easily, doesn't seem to have any stains or cracks, and we use it all the time. It's been almost 4 years and it's in great shape. Here's the components of our kitchen island. (We are not handy people, but this was easy to put together.) 1. InterMetro® Butcher Block Top - 13-1/4" x 35" x 7/8" h 2. Shelves 14" x 36" InterMetro® Wire Shelf. In Black, it's 483015. We have 3, but you could probably get a 4th one in there if you wanted more shelf space. 3. 4 posts, 34-1/2" InterMetro® Post. Black is 483030. 34 inches seems short, but when you add the caster wheels, its counter height. 4. Wheels - we have 2 caster wheels with brakes and two without. 3" InterMetro® Caster w/ Brake is 483077 5. Canvas cover - we thought about this but didn't do it. We have young kids, but they don't grab everything as much as I thought they would. In fact, we keep plastic containers on the bottom, and when they are interested, it's kind of a nice distraction that keeps them busy. The fact that its on wheels has not been dangerous for the kids, but if we don't want it to move, locking the two wheels keeps it in place. Overall, a great product, and I'd buy Intermetro shelving again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this product! I was hoping it could come in a larger size that would fit the 18" x 48" shelving?? Or even come in a stainless steel top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finish This top is the perfect finish for the InterMetro shelving system. When I moved my office into my home, I had to adapt a second bedroom and searched in vain for bookshelves that weren't a) made of particle board; b) huge; c) built-in or d) downright ugly. The InterMetro system was the answer, and I keep reference books as well as files stored neatly on these lightweight but sturdy shelves. But what really completes the system is the butcher block top. It's beautifully made and easy to maintain, and the rich wood is a great accent for the wire shelving.

Does this still work on 18 x 48 shelf

Asked by: John1
No, the InterMetro Butcher Block Top is compatible with any 14" x 35" InterMetro shelves.

Is this surface heat safe fot small kitchen appliances like air fryers, convection ovens and toaster ovens to be used while on top of it?

Asked by: BKA99
This is fine for appliances to sit on, but things like hot pots should not be placed directly on the surface.

How much does it weigh?

I wish they had posted the weight of the butcher block. I will be sitting a flat screen TV 43" on the top shelf. (with the butcher block underneath the TV).
Asked by: SBeckas
Our InterMetro Butcher Block Top weighs 10.9 pounds. Although the weight of an object does not directly influence the weight capacity of that object, but our InterMetro Butcher Block Top is more than adequate to support a 19 to 23 pound flat screen television.

Each wipe is saturated with white mineral oil to help keep natural wood surfaces looking and performing their best.

Does the Butcher Block sit on top of the shelves itself, or does it require a separately purchased shelf to sit on top of?

Asked by: Incomplete
It fits right into the top shelf so works as a wood shelf or counter top.

Is there a Butcher Block Top that can be used on the 18" x 24" Metro Commercial Shelf with cut-out contoured corners?

Asked by: DesigningMyOwn
For 18" x 24" Metro Commercial or InterMetro Shelving solutions, we offer a routed Butcher Block Top that rests directly on the Poles, not on a Shelf. (A link is provided below.)
