Therefore surface imperfections such as scratches, scuffs and indents may be found. This is normal and to be expected on products of this nature***
It’s exactly what I was looking for! I feel like my positive review should address some of the negative comments.
1) “not really commercial grade”–I can tell you, it’s what restaurant supply houses refer to as “light duty,” meaning it is made of 18 gauge steel. What you’re thinking of as “commercial” is 16 gauge steel and that would DOUBLE the price. This is plenty sturdy for home use. Will hold all your small appliances, pots, pans, serveware, etc.
2)”came damaged/ scratched / dented/ bent / broken nuts/ rust spots”– of course it did, you MAIL ORDERED an 18 gauge steel table. Gridman isn’t responsible for UPS or FedEx beating it to he’ll or improperly exposing it to the elements along the way.
This table is a FAR better value than the local used restaurant equipment store or the tiny particle board islands they sell at Target and IKEA. No laminate that will peel off of if gets wet too often, no cultured stone overlay or plastic cutting board insert to collect mold and bacteria. Just easy to clean, durable, shiny steel.
I love the backsplash to keep stuff from falling off. I put my shelf close to the floor but it could easily be positioned anywhere using the set screws (have a tape measure and level on hand to ensure an even surface) . Assembled it by myself in 30 minutes.
The packaging is a large box with very thin cardboard. Then more thin cardboard to have separation. Honestly the best thing they could try to do is to atleast put small styrofoam around the backsplash corners. Then instead of glue maybe just a really basic weld to fasten the table top together. Instead of just bending metal and gluing it together.
Visually speaking. It’s a nice looking table, if I knew it was of better quality I would buy the largest size ones as well.

Problem though, It’s destine to get damaged in shipping. That is what happened to me! The description claims that commercial items such as this have minor scratches and dents because that’s the normal for commercial equipment. I highly doubt that, especially with what I’ve seen. I’m very disappointed in this purchase. Also says Gridmann is from Florida on sticker, but says made in China under the table. I bought a $150.00 table that should have sold for $50 in the condition I received it. “I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BUYING THIS TABLE”

It also arrived damaged (not by the shipper), but they agreed to give me a partial refund, so that was fine with me. However, it’s obviously also not stainless steel. Which is unfortunate, because that’s what I needed.
Bottom line: deceptive advertising, crappy product. Buy something else!
