Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cookininthekitchen Adequate-sized island for work surface and storage.
Overall, a nice addition to the kitchen. Product was packaged well, but there was still a cracked piece. Company sent a replacement within the week. Assembly wasn't too hard but some of the pieces didn't fit perfectly together. On one side there is a gap between the shelves and one post, which is a disappointment (see my photo). Accessing the drawer and cupboards from both sides is a good idea, except that the easy-glide drawer has no metal track but instead is lined with felt pieces on the bottom edges of the drawer. The drawer therefore has some side-to-side motion which makes me wonder what kind of wear may be evident in time. I'd also have some concern that if the drawer was pulled out too far, that it could fall out and cause damage. I do like the look of the island, however, I have not had it long and the oak surface seems to scratch easily. I am wishing that I had purchased an island with a more durable top for a work surface, so am in the middle as far as recommending it to others. Since there is only a yes or no to check, I'm marking it as a "no".

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Cabin Nice sized, poor quality.
Product delivered in an undamaged box, but the trim around the drawer was broken off. Build quality was poor as the end shelves were not properly drilled for pins and the pins had to be removed before assembly on one of the three shelves. Zero quality control.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mickey Very nice but...
This kitchen island is very pretty when put together and a nice size. It looks good and is heavy (maybe slightly too tall and could be a few inches shorter). The perplexing thing is that it is for a kitchen and therefore meant to be used and not just looked at like a bookcase or piece of furniture and the oak top cannot be used. The instructions warn not to place hot things, wet things or sharp things on it. We will be replacing this pretty top with a piece of granite in order to actually use it for cooking. It also came somewhat put together and the hinges which were on it already were crooked and the doors did not fit properly. We had to order more hinges which haven't come yet and we hope to put it together correctly. It costs a lot to be put together so cheaply and we know we will have to tighten up the connecting screws on and off. We would have loved it a lot if it had been built better because it looks nice otherwise.
