Bell’O KI10275-48-T401 Farmhouse Kitchen Island – Awesome Island

It wasn’t as easy to assemble as many reviews mentioned – mostly due to the lame instructions. It is a great addition to our smallish kitchen. We turned the drawer side away from the kitchen assembly area so that we could hide recycling and trash bins where the stolls are placed in pictures. That works better for our space.

Wanted something more modern looking and this fit my kitchen perfectly. Instructions were very easy to follow. Only issue i had was with the right facing drawer. It was difficult to insert it. The sides of the drawer were a little crooked so i had to unscrew the drawer side bar and lower it a few millimeters down. And after a bit of granite polish, i am really loving it.

Served our purpose exactly as expected. Here are the specifications for the Bell’O KI10275-48-T401 Farmhouse Kitchen Island:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Black granite top provides the workspace you need to prepare your favorite foods
  • Eat-at-counter designed for bar stool dining
  • 2 full-extension drawers provide additional storage
  • Easy to assemble with just a Phillips head screwdriver
  • Great for a cottage or farmhouse look

Delivered quickly and easy to assemble. I love how it creates additional counter space and storage in my small kitchen. Wonderful product for the price.

Very nice, easily assembled, paint finish on back side could have been better, but overall, i am satisfied with my purchase.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good kitchen island if you’re innovative!
  • Sturdy, but granite residue persists
  • Delivered quickly and easy to assemble

I have had this counter for about 8 months. Pros: for the price, it’s a great piece to add counter and seating space to my kitchen. Cons: there is a film that continues to come off the granite countertop when washed with soapy water, or – and this is the most disappointing part – when working on the surface with dough. I was really hoping it would be a good surface for working doughs, but if the dough sticks, it starts to pick up a black film from the granite. I hoped it was a residue that would eventually subside, but it seems to persist. I will try and have it sealed.

All of the 24 pcs of dowels that came with it are all smaller than the holes. My husband fixed it by inserting/putting some toothpicks with the dowels to fit tightly in the holes (which was very annoying and time consuming when assembling). The drawers were slightly not aligned. Otherwise, this is a beautiful kitchen island. It seems sturdy and it fits in my small kitchen. Despite of the flaws, i still love it.

All hardware marked in separate packages and lettered. Even though my cabinets are more white. My reasons for 4 stars are first the granite is low grade. Has appearance like sandpapered or steel wooled. . I tried sealing, cleaning, polishing but nothing made a difference. Has kind of a speckled to it which is fine.

Very well made and a beautiful piece of furniture.

Arrived exactly like the pictures and looks great in the apartment.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed.
    Very disappointed in this purchase. We must have been given the worst piece of granite off the lot. It is quite possible that the granite was not sealed properly because it looks like something had been placed on it (like seran wrap) and then removed at some point. After numerous washings, it does not improve the look whatsoever. Took pictures after washing it and drying completely and all the markings remain. Can see someone’s finger prints and maybe some kind of tire track. Also having difficulty with getting the right side drawer in.
