Crosley Alexandria Black Granite Top Kitchen Island
The quality of this kitchen island is really good - not flimsy at all. I would say the price point for this product is in line with others that are similar and maybe even better for the quality you get. I love the black granite top! Makes it look so rich and since I have it in my dining room - makes a great appearance. Nice piece of furniture. Good storage. Be aware that the "feet" are either the stationery feet or the rollers. You can't have both which I wasn't aware of when I purchased. I chose to use the rollers so that I can put in other rooms as needed. Overall this is a really good quality product. I'm very happy with our purchase. I would also recommend hiring someone to put it together. LOTS of pieces, etc. We COULD have done it but it would have taken us a LONG time. Hired two guys who put it together in 1 1/2 hrs. and they do this for a living. So if you feel ambitious, give it a try. If it would be frustrating for you, hire it done. Well worth it in my opinion.

The produce looks good so far i am still assembling it. the boxes arrived kind of beat up but everything was packed well so no damage. the biggest problem i have with this product and the whole process is the fact that inventory item D was not in the box. when i called to get this problem fixed they seemed to be all over it. It has been over a week and i am still waiting on one single piece to complete assembly.

Nice furniture but less usable space than expected
The quality is really nice and assembly wasn't too hard (make sure you put in the doors the right way, though!!!). We were just a little disappointed the drawers didn't go back all the way (we lose about 4 inches with the design as it is) and the side attachments get factored into the total size, so what you really get for storage within the drawers and cabinets is less that you might expect. Overall though, very happy with the cherry/black granite combination and how solid the thing is.

Nightmare in Delivery
I purchased this as a Christams / Housewarming gift for my daughter and son in law . It was delivered THREE times and it never arrived wiithout being damaged in some way. Very disappointing and even worse service from the vendor. Decided to cancel the order completely wiht my daughter totally disappointed. Very poor accountability with the supplier and BBB customer service.

We first purchased another island kitchen cart from a different major retailer online. It took quite a while to arrive and although the carton was not damaged there were several broken pieces and missing assembly parts. Needless to say we were very disappointed. We decided to take another chance with this product from BBB. It looked to be a higher quality piece from the photos and description and included a granite top and a option for either casters or solid feet.
It arrived very quickly and from the moment we opened the box we knew we had made the right decision. It was superbly packaged and there was zero damage. All the screws, nuts & bolts were shrink wrapped on a piece of cardboard and numbered so nothing was missing. Assembly was very straightforward and the instructions were clear. It took less than an hour and the result was fantastic. We chose to use the solid feet rather than the casters and the look and feel of the final product was just what we were looking for. We have received many compliments from our friends and family. We expect the cart to last a long time due to the solid materials and well planned assembly method. The granite top is quite heavy so I'll just recommend that two people lift it and place it on the unit.
And a big bonus was using the BBB 20% discount resulted in this item being almost exactly the same price as the much more cheaply made item we got from the other retailer. We love it and highly recommend it! There's really no negative to this item at all.
