Kitchen Cart | Serving Cart

A kitchen cart, also referred to as a serving cart or movable kitchen island, is a movable cart with a tabletop surface and storage below. Typically used in kitchens where more space or flexibility is needed, a kitchen cart provides additional preparation space on top for cooking, and provides additional storage space via shelves or drawers below. The shelves below commonly hold items such as pots, pans, plates, and serving dishes. Most kitchen carts have two to four wheels and are made from aluminum or wood, thus allowing the carts to be lightweight and portable.

Where do you place a kitchen cart?

If living in a smaller place, a kitchen cart can be placed in the middle of a kitchen as a prep station with a butcher’s block placed on top. If the cart is being used as a bar cart, it can be moved further into the living room area to entertain guests. The kitchen cart’s wheels allows it to move around anywhere in one’s home in order to meet the needs of the moment.

How do you stock a kitchen cart?

The different levels or tiers of a kitchen cart should like items stocked together. One tier can hold prep tools such as mixing bowls, whisks, and measuring cup, another tier can carry most used ingredients, and bigger appliances can be placed at the very bottom.

How do you use a kitchen cart?

A kitchen cart can be used based on an individual’s needs. A cutting board can be placed on the top of the cart, turning it into a designated chopping surface. The rest of the levels of the cart can contain frequently used tools and appliances. A kitchen cart can be used as a spice rack, to hold coffee and tea, to house all baking necessities, or as a bar cart.
