Folding Island Kitchen Cart w/Butcher Block Style Top
I was going to purchase the metal folding cart, but found this one and it was on easypay. I liked that this one could hold more weight and the shelves were solid rather than wire. I have a similar island cart with a granite top but it does not fold. When you live in a small house space is at a premium. This will work out great for extra counter top/serving space inside and out. The only complaint is the same as most other reviewers, the top was split at a "seam". I usually am extremely happy with the products QVC offers, but slightly disappointed on this purchase. No big deal for me I can fix it.
I have this on my kitchen now as a coffee/ tea bar!!! I move it to sun room as a rolling bar now I want another!!! So I can keep one as bar and other for coffee then I can change one to desert bar for one of my many parties!!!
When I pulled my table out of the box I was disappointed in it's condition. It was dirty!!!! full of dust. I was not happy about that but I thought...No big deal, I'll just clean dust it. No...I had to get out the Murphy's oil soap and wash it down. The black park looks dull and cheap. It did open up easily as promised and the "no assembly" was a plus. It fit perfectly in the spot I wanted to put it in and it serves it's purpose well so I'll keep it. For the money I guess it's okay but I expected better quality.
I would have loved to give this cart 5 stars because it is substantial and beautiful but it did come split in 3 places on the wood butcher block top. I was disappointed but I kept the cart anyway because it is just too heavy to pack back up and ship.
We love our carts (ordered 2)! They are so handy. We are using one at home and one as coffee center for work. Love them!!
Much more than a cart!
I love this cart, and it's so much more than a cart. The butcher block top is rich looking, and the frame is very attractive. We have a long, galley style kitchen that opens into a sun room, so placing a regular "island" in an open area of the kitchen was impractical. No problem with this item. We generally use it when we entertain "buffet style," as a dessert or beverage island, or as a tableware area, which frees up counter space for a buffet. The mocha frame is a nice companion to our cherry cabinets and fits in with the coffee colored, iron frame dining table and baker's rack in our sun room. Plus the folding feature makes it easy to store. True, removing it from the shipping box was a bit cumbersome, but it's a terrific piece of attractive and functional furniture when set up.
I bought this cart over a year ago, and I have used it every day - fabulous piece of furniture. I have a small kitchen, so I have it set up like a small island. I use the counter on a daily basis to prepare meals. I do not cut directly on it, I have a small cutting board always there ready to be used. This prevents any one to use the counter as a cutting board. It is sturdy and has held over 100lbs. I have read some negative reviews and I can't imagine that being said about my cart. The only thing I can consider is that maybe those other carts were defective. And that is a shame; quality control is a must.
I also bought this table and was so looking forward to using it for Thanksgiving. When my husband open the box and told me what he saw I doubted hi m because I would not believe that QVC will sell something so inferior. The top block was split in two at both ends. Makes it very difficult for the consumer when they have to drag this to the UPS or Postal Service to be returned.
Not what I expected
I really wanted to love this table as I have been shopping for a kitchen utility cart for awhile. I got the brown. Although, after careful inspection, I noticed one side of the table the wood was slightly split from end to end, not real noticeable and also I didn't like that it was wobbly. But, the #1 reason why I had to return this beauty is that I was afraid of smashing or pinching my fingers when opening and closing. It's not light weight at all, as demonstrated. I had my hubby help with opening, folding and closing. It's a little tricky which side the table folded. It was more of a hazard using is the main reason why I had return. I gave it 2 stars since it is beautiful wooden cart.
Not a solid block of wood...
I was so excited to receive this. Set it up and within a few days the top split where the wood is glued together. It split in several places!! Plus the top was not level and bumped side to side. Hope they are not all built that way... Now I have to find a box to send it back in..
Exactly as described: opens easy right out of the box.
Love this table!
I have a Tuscany theme in my kitchen and use this to display my grapes and wine theme pieces...LOVE THIS TABLE! It is such a sturdy piece of furniture. Wish I had room for more than one.
