I absolutely love my Catskill's Empire Kitchen Island. Make sure you buy some Food Grade mineral oil,(available at Home Depot) and oil all the pieces. It makes a big difference in enhancing the color of the wood. Luckily I'm a patient person, because I had to have them send me parts twice. It came without directions, so I obtained a PDF online to check for parts. We were missing two parts plus the directions. Once my husband started assembling the island, he discovered another missing part, so I had to call a 2nd time for another part. I was very happy with the slide out extension boards and the extremely large front drawer. I was so glad the extension board cleared my trash can, as I hadn't even thought of this before I ordered it. Costumer service for requesting more parts is terrific. They take your info. and send the missing parts out. We received the parts in about one week each time. Poor packaging of the product was a surprise, and it's amazing there weren't more broken pieces.. Assembly was difficult as instructions were poorly written, but in the end, thanks to my handy husband, I am very satisfied with the product. *****You will need a man to put this together!!!

We purchased this because not only did Sams have a price hundreds lower than one of the big box stores but its one of the largest islands available. It arrived in 3 boxes via UPS (due to weight) and was fairly easy to assemble taking only about 5 hours spread out over two evenings. We had a minor issue with a too long screw and I managed to damage a handle, and I emailed the manufacturer and they took care of it and 2 days later I had a new handle for free! Its a beautiful item and offers a ton of storage enough room under it for 3 kitchen aid mixers and then some! The slide outs and drawer use very heavy glides of exceptional quality. I fully expect this to be handed down to my kids its so solid.

Excellent price, and this island is absolutely worth every penny. I would have given it an "excellent" rating for quality too but one piece had pilot holes in the wrong places. I had to drill my own. But this was not a visible piece so it was no problem. Assembly was a bit daunting at first. However, in spite living with multiple sclerosis and working alone, I completed it in roughly eighty hours. Two of the casters do lock, but this does not keep it from sliding on our laminate floor. Rubber cups under each caster help perfectly. It is a very handsome piece.

I love this kitchen island. It is well made and a great design. Doors on both sides for easy access. Very attractive butcher block top. I took the advice of the pamphlet that came with it and purchased the oil to treat the cutting surfaces. Purchasing this from Sam's was a great deal as other offers on the internet were $280 + more. Delivery from UPS to my kitchen was 3 days! Only con is in the assembly. The parts are not marked, so a great deal of time was spent measuring and comparing each to the diagram. In spite of that, it was well worth it!

Great island

This is a great kitchen island. It provides lots of extra storage space and food prep areas. The assembly however, is not for the faint of heart. The hardware is all thrown into one plastic bag, making the first step sorting through several different sizes of screws and pins. The parts are not labelled in any identifiable fashion causing one to attempt to match the pieces by measurements on instructions. We were able to successfully assemble it with only a few missteps and are extremely pleased with the final result.

This product meets my needs to a T. The butcher block top and draws are solid and the whole cabinet is well made. I spent probably 6 hours of time putting this product together. Directions were very good and we enjoy the excellent quality of this product.

The Best Kitchen Island

This island is the best one I've found online. The Sam's Club price Is also the best. It took several hours to put together, but was well worth it in the end. The parts are not marked so we found it easier to label them in the beginning to avoid confusion
