Kitchen Cart Advice

I'm in the market, as we need some extra space for storage and some appliances will go on top. I've been scoping out several in the $350.00 to $420.00 range, 49" and 52" with granite tops. Anyone own one of these? Any advice? How do you like yours?

We don't have rom for a cart in our small kitchen so we have a tall cabinet with doors in the adjoining half bath/laundry room. It's about 36" wide and 72" tall.

Thanks Andy. Just the reason I need a cart, we have a small kitchen also. I plan on rolling it into the diningroom so it is out of the way when not being used.

I have one with flip up wings that I got from Penneys years ago. All wood, but it's nice to be able to pop up the wings to extend the surface and be able to roll it around. I keep my microwave dishes, FP stuff, and pyrex bowls in it. The doors close.

I have a small kitchen cart that I use for my mixer, an N50. It holds the mixer and all the attachments, with a wooden top and three sliding basket shelves, on a Metro-type frame. The wheels are not heavy duty but do have locks that I can set or release with my foot, no bending over to move it every time. Has a nice little handle, too, that makes a good towel hanger. It measures 15"w X 21"l x 34"h, and was purchased used, like new, at a thrift store for $40. I think it would normally sell at Target or a similar store for about twice that, which works for me. I'm on a low-cash diet.

I got this one from Walmart for $130 which included tax and shipping. It is also in their store, but I wanted it delivered.

You have to assemble it yourself (easy) and is has wheels that lock/unlock.

The extension on the right can be lowered

That looks just like mine, except mine is dark pine, and both wings can be raised and lowered.

Mine only has the one extension on the right side. The top is solid butcherblock. I used mine as a desk, so I finished the top with varathane.

Is yours made from hardwood or particle board? That is the style I've been looking at, but about twice as wide with a 3/4" thick granite top. Everyone I'm looking at requires assembly.
