There are not many materials around that can take wear that granite can, so it’s little wonder that the granite top kitchen cart has grown in popularity over recent years.
You could use this material when preparing food for a lifetime and barely leave wear marks. Mainly the choice of worktop material for the wealthier members of our communities, although nowadays more and more companies are bringing their own more affordable version to the marketplace.
Good news for anyone looking for something that will last longer while at the same time perform better with the added bonus of being modern and up to date it style.
The great benefits of granite work surfaces are, easy to keep clean and ability to always look good due to their hard wearing properties.
I have added a few good versions of granite topped carts to this page that will help anyone looking to buy one. The criteria has been to ensure each one has some kind of track record from other users. By that I mean having a good number of reviews with higher ratings.
The models featured start from as little as under £100 for the basic granite topped cart up to approx $450 my top choice.
Starting with the least expensive cart which is the Linon granite top kitchen cart in wenge finish. It certainly is that much smaller and has fewer features than the more expensive versions.
What you do get is, an elegant granite worktop sitting on a dark wood frame that they term as a wenge finish, which is basically the color tone of the dark wood. Under the granite top is a drawer to store cutlery etc.
Immediately below the drawer is the fixed storage shelf and below that is a 4 bottle wine rack. When the kitchen cart has been wheeled to the desired position, the rubber casters can be set in a locked position to prevent further movement.
When sitting by the fire pit coffee table in the garden and preparing some snacks in those pleasant evenings this particular granite top kitchen cart would come in very handy. It’s small and compact enough to be wheeled outdoors to act as an outdoor kitchen food preparation station.
The sizes are – Height 33.88 inches x Width 15.63 inches x Length 22.8 inches.
Although small in size this kitchen cart gets a big score in the reviews department left by users. Having a high rating of 4.9 from 5 stars is almost 100% and comes from the 38 purchasers who left a review.
Crosley Black Granite Top Kitchen Cart/Island
Moving up to the more expensive models we arrive at the Crosley black granite top kitchen cart/island. This cart has more or less everything you would wish to have in your cart.
Looks really stunning and is sturdily built and reviews tell us that it comes really well packed which deserves shouting about. There is nothing more annoying when items arrive at the doorstep in a burst box and items inside broken.
What you get here is a cabinet constructed with solid hardwood which has been covered in rich mahogany wood veneers. Mounted on the top there is a black granite worktop. Antique style brass hardware has been added to complete the classic look.
The 2 drawers and 4 door panels have raised design and provide good storage space for lots of your kitchen utensils. One review that I have read explains that they use their cart as a bar read more of the review here.
The interior shelves are adjustable with plenty of room for the type of items you prefer to have to hand. Whether they be a mini food processor for cooking or items for preparing cocktails. The heavy duty casters can be locked when the cart has been maneuvered into the desired position.
The sizes of the Crosley black granite top kitchen cart are – 52 inches Wide x 18 inches Deep x 36 inches High.
Review figures are pretty solid with 47 reviewer comments rated at 4.4 from the 5 stars total.
Home Styles 9100-1024 Granite Top Kitchen Island Cart
Quite similar to the previous kitchen cart is the Home Styles 9100-1024 version. This time the cabinet made from natural Asian hardwood and with a white finish. The worktop again is in black granite in sharp contrast to the cabinet.
The style is slightly different with just the two doors giving less cupboard space although the 4 central drawers provide another option. Towel rail on one end and a spice rack on the other are both within handy reach when working on the island.
2 locking wheels and white metal handles are used.
Measurements of this granite top kitchen island cart are – 48 inches wide x 17-3/4-inches deep x 35-1/2-inch high.
Review figures again are pretty good for the Home Styles 9100-1024 cart with an average of 4.4 from 5 stars coming from 32 users.
