Really satisfied! by: Debbie from: Princeton, NJ on: November 20, 2013
This was a really satisfying purchase - on time delivery - very well made - no problems - but very heavy. Assembly instructions clear. This is an excellent addition to the kitchen. I am not sure that it is quite as high as I expected - but I expect I will order some wheels.
Sturdy, Easy Assembly by: Carla from: Green Bank, WV on: May 29, 2012
This is, unfortunately, an out-of-the-box review, as I've only recently assembled the workstation. It is extremely sturdy, well-made, and easy to assemble. It's a lovely addition to our kitchen, very professional-looking. The drawer action was a little sticky, but other than that, no complaints. I will probably buy more hooks. Good quality butcher block and stainless steel.

The island is a great addition to our kitchen. Sturdy and beautiful. Only thing that was disappointing was that we ordered 48 x 36 top size thinking the 8" drop was additional, making total top 44" wide. However, the 36" wide figure INCLUDES the 8" drop. In the long run it actually fit our space better.
A quality piece of furniture but bring some muscle to lift that 220lb finished product!
