Not Bad for the Price
Judith from Champlain, NY – Verified Buyer– Top 500 Reviewer
I usually avoid the quality furniture but this was exactly right for my space and storage requirements. HOWEVER Takes hours to put together but doable. Looks nice and will do the job.Just a few caveats about assembly: You will need both a standard phillips screwdriver fer the larger head screws and cams and a smaller phillips screwdriver to deal with some of the (many) very small head screws, The top has a sticky protective sheet on it that will take you no less than 1 hour to carefully peel off (loosen the entire back edge and sides and then peel towards the front). Do this last. The unit tends to tip toward the front so counter that when you load it up with items toward the back and make sure the casters are positioned to give you maximum stability. The casters are hard plastic not rubber but they are large and work well. Locking feature on the front pair are difficult to work. The hinges appear ok but somehow the doors are not level or squared evenly when closed (off about 14 inch from each other).Not really noticeable and not unusual with this quality item. My right hand door keeps opening even though the magnets are aligned with the metal plate. The top will show fingerprints so prepare to do some polishing with stainless cleaner.
TMS Cart,,,serves the purpose.

Well, I read many a review on this product, I was hesitant to buy it, however, the price point was the only convincing choice. First, I'm very handy so I had some idea of what to expect from this cart; there are many pieces, but if you have put together any of those big box store furniture its the same issue. Once I had mine together it was to wobbly so I ended up reinforcing the inside and applying glue to crucial parts, including the pull out draws. I had no issue with alignment of any panels or doors. In end, the cart is satisfactory and serves our purpose; I made it more sturdy and will last for some time.
Nice looking, mediocre quality
Allison from TORONTO, ON – Verified Buyer
Definitely an adventure to put together and definitely requires 2 people. All in all it looks nice from the front, however the back is not designed in a way that it seems is meant to be exposed--which in my mind doesn't make sense for a kitchen island, which should in theory be able to be in the middle (ie visible from all sides!). Other than that, the drawers do not have glides but rather just slide in and out on wooden channels which is not great, and the magnets to hold the front doors shut are so weak that the doors pop open if you so much as touch the cart. Because of the unfinished backside, I am keeping this against a wall instead of in the center of my kitchen where I would prefer it, but I guess for the money its OK. It looks nice at any rate.
my pros and cons
Sarah from Indianapolis, IN – Verified Buyer
I'm happy I bought this cart. It is good quality for the price and looks great. The extra storage is wonderful to have and I'm using the top of it for my microwave and coffeemaker. It was not fun putting it together though. Most of the parts were unlabeled and the instructions could have been clearer. The back panel is flimsy and the magnets for the drawers should be stronger. Make sure to slide them as far forward as they will go. But now it's together I'm definitely pleased.

the cart is very well made. It was damaged in transit. One of the corners of the stainless steel top was smashed in and one of the corners of the doors had the paint shipped. The delivery driver delivered it to the wrong address and had to go back and pick it up the next day so I'm not certain if the damage occurred in transit or during the error in delivery. If it wasn't damaged, it would be perfect! It is very well made and sturdy and exactly what I had in mind. The only improvement that could be made is if the rear wall of the cart was made of the same wood as the sides of the cart instead of the pressboard. Despite the pressboard, this cart is solid. Very sturdy, great design, it looks lovely aside from the damage.
Wonderful Gift for Small Kitchen
Linda from Savage, MN – Verified Buyer
We purchased the kitchen cart with the stainless steel top as a gift for my parents who had just moved into a senior living apartment. They have limited cabinet space in their kitchen and this fits so nicely in their eating area. It is large enough to hold both a large microwave and coffee pot and the coffee cups and supplies are out of sight behind the doors. My husband and I put the cart together in about 1 hour. I like that the cabinet has wheels so my parents can move it if they desire even if we are not there. We were all very pleased with the purchase.

Great size cart and thought the price was fair. A little disappointed with the color, looks to have a red-ish tint rather than a true brown (Espresso). Also, the backing looks to be cheap and the nails are visible up and down the backing of the cart. Because of this, the cabinet doors and drawers need to face out in our kitchen, which does not make this piece the most handy or accessible when trying to cook. Generally pleased, but not overly satisfied.
Black Kitchen Cart
VIcki from Overland Park, KS – Verified Buyer
Very pleased with cart except the magnets do not hold door shut and cart does not have an attractive back so it must be placed against a wall with back of cart not showing. Aside from that, the cart works great and is exactly as shown in the picture.
Laurie from Keithville, LA – Verified Buyer
I purchased this cart on January 6th and it arrived within 2 days as promised. Upon putting it together, I noticed I was missing a whole bag of parts. I called the company and a guy tells me that they will take one out of another box, maybe this is what happened to my parts, So 2 weeks later 012113, my parts or so I thought finally arrive... only to open my package to find one drawer pull and 1 screw. REALLY!!! I called the company again and specifically went down the list again of what I need and quantity. I asked that my order be rushed out. I got 3-6 business days. Also I was advised that they have a parts department and they do not take things from other boxes, good to know. Also the front of my cabinets are scratched but I decided to cover it up with a furniture paint pen. So, I am hoping to receive all my parts before a whole month passes since placing my order. Ridiculous. I will post another comment once I get it up and together to tell you if all this hassle was worth it.
Suitable for Price
Tiffany from St. Louis, MO – Verified Buyer
This product fits my needs well for the value! The assembly can be a head ache if you don't receive all of the necessary parts at one time. There were a lot of mishaps with the shipping of the missing items, but once I reached out to a manger, it was resolved quickly and very much to my satisfaction!
