Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality product, assembly nightmare Exactly what I’d expect from inter metro at this price point, solid construction, quality manufacturing...but a nightmare to assemble, especially for one person. Also for this much money include the correct size wrench (or 2 actually ugh) Or ship assembled!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small kitchen solution I bought this cart for my youngest sister. Her kitchen is really small, but she entertains all the time. It provides needed counter space and storage during parties, then folds and stores behind a bedroom door until the next party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from InterMetro Folding Chef's Cart This cart created much needed extra prep and storage space in our studio apartment. My partner and I love to cook, but we were running out of counter and cabinet space in our galley kitchen for all of our cookware. We love that the cart has wheels, so it's easy to move in and out of the kitchen. And when not in use, it makes everyday items more accessible and creates a nice way to display of some of our favorite pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accurate dimensions are not listed in the Specs First, I will say that I am very satisfied with the quality of this chef's cart. The only issue I experienced is that the Product Specifications do not accurately reflect the cart width measurements. The shelves (work space) are 27" wide, but the actual cart itself is 29.50" wide because the poles extend out past the shelves on both sides. This might be valuable information for people like us who need to fit the cart in a tight space!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Folding Cart Review Have had it for a month; assembled easily but one set of wheels don't swivel so it is limited in terms of moving around easily. It was purchased for us to use on deliveries and while the fact that it folds is helpful in making it fit on a truck, it's not as helpful as we were hoping it would be. I'm glad I bought it on sale and with a promotional discount, otherwise I would have been very disappointed having paid full price for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If all four wheels swiveled it would be a dream Great cart, but I am missing an end cap to one of the legs. Also, only two wheels swivel, which makes it very inconvenient to maneuver. It was very easy to put together. Only two wrenches needed. I will be watching for a folding cart that has all four wheels that swivel. When folded the cart is very thin, about 4 inches thick, and is about 5 feet tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cart Lightweight, easy to store or transport. I use for product demos, so it is great that I can easily roll it, fold it, load it in my car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy at last I have a somewhat small city apartment house kitchen. Although I have enough space to move around in it, I do not have enough counter space. For five years I was looking for a pantry cart ,and I thought of buying a wood on until I saw this one in a catalog. Everything is off my counter and now I have a coffee station plus more room on the counter. the only gripe is that It took my handy man about 45 minuter to put together. They did not provide a key to lock the in place the shelves. Still I m happy at last

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Description needs more information I have a small kitchen and this cart will come in handy at holliday time. It will give me extra storage and work space. Unfortunately, the description did not indicate how tall it would be when it is folded. I guess I was somewhat shocked at the height. Also, it was not so easy to assemble. However, it is narrow and I am able to store it in the back of a closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase love how easy it is to setup and fold when not in use. It rolls very easily and was very useful at my recent outdoor get together with family and friends, used it as a server.

When folded, how tall does the folding chef's cart stand?

I would like to know if I can place the folded cart under a bench in my office.
Asked by: Ayca
It will fold down to 4" in height when laid on the side. However, it will be 55" long.

Are swivel wheels available to replace the 2 wheels that don't swivel?

Asked by: Physicschick
This Chef's Cart comes as-is without additional components. All four casters swivel. However, two have the ability to lock in place.

What size are the casters?

I'd like to order two (more) casters that swivel so it moves more easily.
Asked by: Kat1976
The wheels of our InterMetro Folding Chef's Cart are pre-assembled and permanently attached to the legs - they cannot be detached or replaced.

Is the towel bar removable? What is the height of the area below the towel bar on that shelf?

Asked by: Mrivsen
Yes, the bar is removable. There are screws on the other side of the post which need to be removed for this to happen. There is 11-1/8" from the bottom of the towel bar to the next shelf.

Can you clarify the 21” length vs. 27” width dimensions? What is the measurement from back to front (towel rack)?

I’m having trouble figuring out if width = depth or not? So, from the back to the font (towel rack) is it 27” or is it 21”?
Asked by: ConfusedCook
This cart is 27" long (the side with the towel bar) x 21" wide.
