Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 48reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Would have gotten 5 stars if not for the warping Before purchasing this Suncast product, I read every single review on it at Walmart's website, as well as 4 other websites. So I was very aware of the numerous complaints about warped pieces, difficult and/or nearly impossible assembly, and doors that are difficult to open and/or close. I even went so far as to call Suncast and ask them about the warping and the problem of not being able to disassemble the product if you need to return it. The rep I talked to did NOT acknowledge these issues (even though I told him that I had read the same complaints at multiple websites). He insisted that Suncast prides itself on producing excellent quality products. He then gave me his name and personal email address and told me that if I had any problems whatsoever after purchasing, to email him and he would "take care of it".In spite of the rep's promise, I decided that, to be on the safe side, I would order two cabinets instead of one. That way if there were any warped or faulty pieces in the 1st box, we could swap those pieces out with pieces from the 2nd box, instead of having to disassemble and return the 1st one, place an order for a 2nd one, and then wait another 1★˝ to 2 weeks to receive the 2nd one.When we received the 2 cabinets, I opened one of them and carefully began unwrapping and examining each piece, while checking them off the inventory list as I went along to make sure there were no missing pieces. The further I got into the box, the more surprised and happy I was because the parts looked to be ok. But then I pulled out 2 of the largest pieces -- the left side panel and the right side panel. Both were definitely warped -- quite a bit. I continued though and can report that there were no missing pieces and, although the 3rd largest piece (the back panel) was also a bit warped, everything else in the box was in good condition. There were a few tiny scratches on the "ceramic-look tile" top and leaves, but they were not too noticeable. I was also very happy with the coloring of the cabinet -- something I was concerned about after seeing a lot of color variations in pictures of this product at the various websites I had looked at. I wanted the brown tone in this cabinet to be more in the taupe category than orangish-brown shade, and it is. The coloring of the ceramic-look top blends nicely with the coloring of the cabinet & handles.Upon opening the 2nd box to pull out the left and right side panels, I could see that they were not warped as badly as those in the 1st box, but nonetheless, they were warped. I decided to let my husband look at them, since he would be the one assembling the cabinet, and see if he wanted to try assembling it with the 2 less warped side pieces or take up the Suncast rep's offer to "take care of it". When my husband compared the side panels from both boxes, he saw something that I had missed. Both of the "Left" side panels had a crack in the exact same location (indicating it was a problem with Suncast's mold or something in the production and NOT a result of poor packing or rough shipping and handling). He felt that due to the location of the crack, it would probably completely break during assembly or some time after. As a matter of fact, one of them was already cracked enough that it had separated. So we decided to contact Suncast and see what they offered to do.Rather than emailing the Suncast rep, I decided to try and reach him by phone. That part was easy enough since I had his name, but after 2 days of leaving messages in his personal voicemail box asking him to call me and not ever getting a returned call, I decided to try and reach someone else. I was told he no longer works for Suncast (even though it had only been 2 weeks since I spoke to him and his voicemail greeting still said he was not in right now but to leave a message and he would return your call). It took a few more phone calls, more voicemails, and another day and half, but I finally talked to someone who immediately told me they would ship replacement parts to us at no charge (and they did not need to have the defective ones sent to them). There was no hassle at all and we received the replacement parts 7 calendar days later.The replacement pieces were also warped but not nearly as much as the ones we already had, and there were no cracks so my husband decided to he would begin the assembly.It took about 1 hour and wasn’t too frustrating but we could see how it would be if the parts were any more warped. The only tool we had to use was something to pry open the 1st door that we closed mid-way through the assembly so we could check the alignment of things. The instructions don’t say to attach the door handles until the 3rd to the last step, but it really should precede putting the doors on the cabinet. Without a handle on the door, once we had closed it, there was no way to open it again and continue the assembly. In order to get it open, we had to insert the tip of a screwdriver into one of the screw holes for the handle and pull the door open – which bent the plastic around the screw hole. So we would advise putting both door handles on before attaching the doors to the cabinet.We are happy with the overall appearance and size of the cabinet and with the quality of the casters and how smoothly it glides when rolled. The only complaint we have is that both doors have to be slammed REALLY hard (sometimes twice) in order to close them (while holding onto the cabinet), and opening them requires a hard pull (also, while holding onto the cabinet). With the 2 locking casters in the unlocked position, the cabinet would definitely roll if we didn’t hold onto the cabinet while opening and closing the doors, and with the casters in the LOCKED position, the cabinet starts to tip over if we don’t hold it while opening and closing the doors. It is obvious when looking at the alignment of the 2 doors that the reason they are so hard to open and close is because they fit too tight in some areas (due to the warped side panels). Likewise, both doors have gaps in other areas, and the top of the lower door is not flush with the cabinet, which will probably result in some rain getting inside the cabinet.Because Walmart’s review “tips” say to make the review “product-focused” (rather than focusing on Walmart’s ordering process, Site-to-Store shipping, & customer service which would have all gotten 5 stars), I took off 1 star due to Suncast’s apparent lack of concern about the well-known warping issue and the hassle of having to order 2 cabinets to get enough pieces that were not defective, and a 2nd star because, even with the replacement pieces that were shipped directly from Suncast, the warping was still bad enough to cause the doors to not align properly, which will mean always having to use two hands to open and close them – not very convenient when barbecuing.My review cannot be submitted without selecting "Yes" or "No" on the "I would recommend this to a friend", so I will say that I would recommend to a friend -- but not without explaining the likelihood and risk of warped pieces. 06/02/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Beyond Thrilled! I have a small cabin on a campground near the shore points. I purchased this item for the deck with the idea to put it next to the grill and to minimize in and out traffic when grilling. Instead I can keep all my grilling necessities stored away and bring out items to be grilled to sit on prep station until ready for grilling. I must say this prep station is perfect in every conceivable way. The size, the height, the functionality and how it looks. And of course, it is waterproof/rain resistant. I love this item and plan to get many years of use from it. My husband put it together in less than 30 minutes. I was instantly in love with it when husband called me to say he was done. It has surpassed my expectations. Now I'm looking for a cover to protect it from the elements when not in use. But in the meantime, I have improvised using a grill cover. 08/22/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Product After reading some of the reviews on this product, I was skeptical about purchasing it. I decided to take the plunge and buy it anyway and I am so happy I did. Some of the reviews spoke about how the product was warped and all. I can tell you that I had absolutely no problems putting this product together. As a matter of fact, I was ready to spend hours on it and to my amazement, I think it took me less than 1/2 hour to put it together. One thing I did do was keep the box inside my house for a couple of days before putting it together. I believe that doing this gave the product time to acclimate to the environment. Similar to what you are supposed to do before laying laminate flooring. I waited two days because I didn't have time to put the product together the next day but I believe 1 day would have been sufficient. Everything fit like a glove. To anyone that is thinking about purchasing this product, I would recommend you follow this same strategy. I am very happy with the product and have no complaints. 04/12/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Porch Storage for Cooker I use this on my back porch for storage and use of a deep fat fryer. The cabinet protects the cooker and the top area is perfect for deep fat frying without creating odors in the house. 04/13/2010
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Sturdy & Functional Love that I now have some storage space on my new patio. It rained hard for a few days & the inside was dry. <3 05/29/2014
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Warped immediately and it's not even summer yet! This is the first thing I am rating and NOT recommending.Already putting it together I could tell it was of poor quality. But put together (less than 30 minutes) it works and fills its/a function.The doors can be a bit tricky but they work.But, and this is unacceptable, after the first hot day in May, maybe 85 in the sun, the top warped. Now I can't even put a cutting-board on top as it will be seesawing on the bulge. See picture. 05/19/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Attractive, wasy to assemble, convenient This cabinet was exactly what I was looking for and at a great price. It was easy to put together, has convenient drop down side tables, and seems to be solidly built. 06/29/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Product is convient and practical. Cabinet prep station instructions at first we're confusing. After a bit things fell into place. Was a matter of understanding instructions. I am very happy with prep station, a very practical product. 07/10/2014
