Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike nice design
Bought this one for Thanksgiving. Really nice design but TOP is made of MDF (medium density
fiberboard) - Particle board! instead of using SOLID WOOD where it's best needed for purpose.
No wonder it was so heavy. The only solid wood construction are 4 columns and legs, frame around
doors, frame around panels, molding trims...etc. You can easily notice if it's real wood if you see
the GRAIN even when it's painted. The table top doesn't show any grain - it's PARTICLE BOARD!CHEAP!
I just wish they would have written in specs section which parts are real wood and particle board.
That's why other reviewers are complaining the top easily gets scratched/ bubbles when exposed to water
because it's PARTICLE BOARD!

The two cartons of this arrived earlier than expected. Two days. I laid out all the pieces as instructed and all said and done took about 2 hrs. to put together as I was watching tv. Easy instructions, everything fit together perfectly. No blemishes, it came packed very well. Looks great in my kitchen and I've been getting all kinds of compliments. I highly recommend this.

I LOVE this island - however some of the pieces where chipped/scratched and there was one large gouge of wood missing along the bottom piece. I am currently waiting for the manufacturer to respond on how to handle getting this problem resolved. The pieces were packed really well in the packages so I believe that the pieces must have been damaged before they were even put in the box and sent to me. I searched numerous places on line for this same item and Home Depot was the BEST price out there - and free shipping.

It was an amazing purchase--considerably less expensive than several other stores asked for the same item. It's not all that hard to assemble but my instructions left out a step. At no time did did it tell me when or where to attach the top which ultimately turned out to be good thing as I could lift the rest by myself and then lay the top on it (still not permanently attached but it's not going anywhere.).
It came in two boxes and I would have really struggled to get them into my town home (I'm a 75 year old widow) but a young neighbor wandered by and offered to help. I did the rest myself. It makes a lovely addition to my kitchen. I added two stools (and a glass top) so my visiting kids could sit and chat with me as I cooked. I think this is a great buy

We love our kitchen island. It is very sturdy and compliments our kitchen. It provides extra storage space and seating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NJTeach378 Great Concept, Flawed Production
I received my kitchen island just before Christmas 2013 after waiting a year to make the purchase. I needed something to serve as both storage space and working counter for food prep.
While the design of the kitchen island is fantastic, the production of the individual pieces is FLAWED...the dowel holes do not line up properly and cause the doors to hang unevenly, leaving gaps. Additionally, when I attempted to put the top on, the holes did not line up because of two of the other pieces being drilled incorrectly.
I sent three emails, had two extremely long conversations with the manufacturer's customer service and still only received one replacement piece - not a new top as was needed.
Overall, HomeDepot cannot be held responsible but the manufacturer of Americana Kitchen Islands is sub-par and I would NEVER recommend a product from them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spainmindy Love it!! Looks like a high quality piece of furniture
Love it! Looks more expensive than it actually is. I've received many compliments on it; one friend is getting one for herself! Everyone is shocked to know that I bought it online. also, very easy to put together; I had it assembled in a little over an hour. I really like that the cabinet doors and drawer open on BOTH sides (which you can't see in the picture). The surface is not a working surface so I keep a cutting board made of leftover granite from my counters on the island to work on. Overall an excellent find.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by merimac Great product for the price!
The Americana Kitchen Island is a nice piece of furniture and fits so well in my kitchen, that some of my friends thought it was built into my new kitchen. Although I am not a DIY-er, I built the island by myself. It looks beautiful and I love the pass-through doors and drawer. My only complaints are that the doors (on both sides) don't quite come together, so you can actually see through, and the finish on the top makes it tough to use it for a work surface. But it really is a great product for the price.
