Add a Drop Leaf to Catskill's Heart of the Kitchen to Make this Island Cart Even More Versatile

The original Heart-of-the-Kitchen Island is among Catskill’s best sellers. It provides an expansive work top, tons of storage and fine detailing. How could they possibly improve on that? It’s simple; by adding a 10” drop leaf that expands the HOTKI’s cutting surface by two-thirds, to 34 inches wide by 27.5 inches deep. It’s not just any old cart top, it’s a butcher block made of sustainable North American hardwood. It’s strong enough to handle nearly any food prep task including chopping and dicing; smooth enough for rolling and kneading pastry dough; and beautiful enough to use as a serving station or as a breakfast bar island.

This Portable Island Is All about Storage

If you’re seeking added storage space for your kitchen, look no further. The Drop-Leaf HOTKI comes with huge storage cabinets, a large utensil drawer and a spacious open shelf. The cabinet measures 20.5” wide, 14.25” deep and 15” high, making it a great place to store large pots and pans, cookie sheets and electric appliances, among other items. And the utensil drawer is of good size too, measuring 18” by 12-1/4” by 4” high. But the open shelf is the HOTKI’s neatest convenience feature. Store here the cookware, tools and appliances you use most frequently. You can access them from any of the island cart’s four sides. Stash smaller items like spices and seasonings on convenient side shelves, within quick, easy reach.

Butcher Block Top Comes with a Natural Oil Finish

The HOTK Island’s hardwood cutting surface is treated with Catskill’s Original butcher block oil. It seeps into wood to keep it from drying and cracking, which could otherwise shorten its useful life. You can help protect its structural integrity and prolong its life by re-applying oil on a regular basis. Add some Catskill oil to your order so you’re prepared to keep it looking great right from Day One.

There's also an Original Heart of the Kitchen Island

If you don't expect to take advantage of the drop leaf on this version of the HOTKI, you should take a look at the regular HOTKI.
