Comes pre-assembled, although you’ll need two people to lift the top on. A sturdy choice that offers a lot of storage. We love the cherry top, which doubles as a table.
Use pads or cutting boards on this option, as the top scratches easily. You’ll need at least a 31-inch doorway and a fair bit of muscle to get this into your house.
Clear and easy installation, with a help line just in case you get stuck. Well-constructed. Wood and stainless steel also available instead of granite for a top surface.
Takes a good 2-3 hours to put together; having a second person to help is recommended. Strong fumes right out of the box will last for a couple of days. Wheel locks don’t work well.
A great price. The overall quality, from the heavy top to the steel and rubber wheels, is outstanding. Assembles easily in under an hour.
Diagram-only instructions not the best help for assembly. Some buyers report that this option arrives with missing or damaged parts.
A 1-2 hour installation that is not overly complicated. Looks great and is made from real wood. Excellent quality, and the drop-leaf is a nice feature.
Not really mobile. Put felt feet on the bottom if you want to occasionally move it around. Some buyers note that the top can split within a few months.
