Rated 4 out of 5Â by Amanduh Nice addition
The additional storage is so nice to have, along with the extra working space and seating. The style was just what I wanted and is true to the picture. One piece came cracked but was quickly replaced at no charge. It felt a little flimsy when putting it together, but once finished it's much more sturdy than I had anticipated, especially for the price. Like the other reviews say, you need a second person to lift that top; very heavy. Overall, we are happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MM266 Perfect addition to our new condo's kitchen...
We just downsized to a wonderful condo with a large kitchen, but it was missing something. We decided to add some contrast to the vast oak floor with a black kitchen table and chairs (see the "before" photo and, yes, the wild wallpaper will be next to go). Since we had so much space, we purchase the Nantucket Kitchen Island. It was delivered in 2 large (and very heavy cartons). I inventoried all the parts and assembled the base unit in the kitchen (without any assistance) in about 3 hours. The very heavy top (with its black granite insert) was assembled in the garage, wheeled into the kitchen on a dolly and placed on the base with the help of one other person. This is a very classy, well-built and versatile island - lots of storage, a large granite work surface and a drop leaf that easily accommodate 2 bar stools when up (see the photo of the island in place). A great buy that should last a very long time!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 3DayKitchenMom Wow!
I love this unit! It is everything I dreamed of when I designed my kitchen around it. Only issue that dropped the quality from Excellent to Good was the bottom brackets on the "P" piece had screws that weren't long enough to hold them onto the bottom so I had to use glue (liquid nails) and slightly longer screws I purchased to reinstall them before I began assembly. Also UPS isn't the best way to ship this because the boxes were damaged and upside down but that isn't Home Depots fault. They packaged it perfectly and it looks great. Took 4 hours to assemble so leave plenty of time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by IllinoisMom ***CHOOSE THIS ISLAND***
This island is really great quality, and looks like the picture. The distressed black color adds character, and the brushed nickel pull handles are perfect. Adjustable shelves on each end and in the cabinet make it very versatile for what you need to store/display. The granite inlay was bigger than I expected, it's the majority of the top and looks really sharp. The leaf folds out easily, and is on durable hinges. BUY THIS ISLAND! YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Swove4 Great island!
Once we got it all laid out to make sure all the pieces were there, it took about 2hrs for me and my daughter (25yrs old) to assemble it. My teen son also helped some. The top was heavy, but my son and I held it while my daughter guided it to fit into the pegs. Looks great and has a lot of storage space in the cabinets. Love it. The only thing is a couple of days later we noticed a cloudy mark on the granite that looks like something was set on it at the factory? We hadn't had anything on it yet, so that's all I can figure. I tried baking soda paste on it for 24hrs like I read on pinterest, but it didn't work. That's the only downside to granite is you have to be very careful what you put on it and how you clean it. Luckily it's not too noticable in most lighting.
