Good bones and a couple of rough spotsSTENSTORP fills our need for an extra work surface in our kitchen that is not as big as an island nor as wobbly as a simple table. This piece is very well designed, stable, and versatile. The drawer glides are ball-bearing-supported, making them suitable for heavy cutlery and utensils.
We found that the pilot holes on one legs were a hair out of spec, which made inserting the anchor hardware very difficult. Patience, as always with IKEA RTA, really paid off.
The butcher block top is attractive, but it could have used another fine sanding. We have conditioned it twice with food grade mineral oil, and it looks very attractive now. This step should be in the instructions.
WHAT IT LACKS: This cart needs a towel bar. We found a metal bar in the kitchen display at our New Haven IKEA that is the right width and metal finish. I am surprised that IKEA does not call attention to this, but I recommend that store signage would be a good first step.
Overall, I recommend this cart. It is a very attractive and functional addition to our kitchen.

I bought this to use as an extension of my small countertop. It is the perfect height and depth (with the flap up). The drawer and shelves are great for additional storage.
Why we like it:
This kitchen cart gives you more space to unload, serve and store things. Keep it stationary or move it to where you need it. The solid wood top creates a warm, rustic look.

Good to know
For increased stability, re-tighten the screws about two weeks after assembly.
Wipe clean with a soft cloth dampened with water and a mild dish detergent or soap, if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Light stains can be removed with a damp sponge in water or a mild soapy solution, or with a fine sandpaper. To retain the appearance of the countertop, the surface should be treated with BEHANDLA wood treatment oil at regular intervals.
