Butcher Block Co., the experts in all things butcher block, reviews Catskill’s Heart-of-the-Kitchen Island. It’s as handsome as it is spacious and versatile. The crown of the Heart of the kitchen is a hardwood butcher block top that’s 34 inches wide and 18 inches deep. If that’s not enough elbow room for the kind of food prep tasks you undertake, then consider the model that includes a drop leaf that expands the cart’s work surface by 50%! For a mid-sized cart, this gem provides a lot of storage …In a utility drawer that’s 18 inches wide and over a foot deep…On an open shelf that’s accessible from all sides …Behind cabinet doors that conceal 2 and a half cubic feet of storage space…And on side shelves with nickel-plated retaining bars. That nickel finish is also featured on the cart’s drawer, door handles and towel bar. Fluted wood panels that frame the cabinet doors are another nice detail helping to make the Heart of the Kitchen as beautiful as it is practical. Check it out at ButcherBlockCo.com. .
