John Lewis Country Play Kitchen
Bought this for daughter's 4th birthday. Arrived very promptly. Instructions were clear & easy to follow. Took 2 of us a couple of hours to put together but only because we were slow! Not stressful to build. The look on my daughter's face when she saw it made it worth every penny. It looks lovely in our kitchen & she spends ages 'making coffee' and 'chopping veg.' (other people bought her utensils to go with the kitchen.) it's really lovely that you can actually put water in the sink because she loves washing up & having her own little sink is perfect. When she's playing, we put the coffee table next to it so she has more room to 'make the food.' She plays with it for hours & I must admit to pottering around and tidying it when she's in bed - you may roll your eyes but you'll be doing it too! A lovely product & well worth paying that bit extra for the lovely look and quality finish. It looks nicer than our real kitchen!

I was worried about buying the kitchen because of the negative reviews, however, I decided to take the risk! I'm so glad I did!
It was very easy to put together, it only took one person to do. The kitchen is much bigger than other play kitchens, so I can imagine it will be played with for much longer. It's also really nice to have a gender neutral kitchen, I didn't want to get a pink kitchen for my daughter! Great storage space in the cupboards too!
There was a slight mark on the work top, I was sent a replacement immediately - even though it was so close to Christmas, it arrived in time! Great customer service as usual!

JL country play kitchen
Solid wooden kitchen, beautifully made. Quite easy to put together, does require 2 people at times. Has a very authentic look and is wonderful for imaginative play. Absolutely would recommend!

Having read the other reviews....
...with their less than positive comments I was a little apprehensive when awaiting delivery of this play kitchen. I decided to rely on the fact that goods I have previously purchased from John Lewis- and there have been many- have always been of good quality. Also their customer services are fantastic so if there were any problems I was confident I would be given a refund. .....I needn't have worried. The kitchen is lovely. It is good quality, was delivered promptly and efficiently and- very importantly for a single mum- it was relatively easy to assemble. My 2 year old absolutely loves it ! In short- would recomend !

Lovely product :-)
I was unsure about buying this item as the reviews were total polar opposites. I decided to take the risk and buy the kitchen a few weeks in advance of christmas as many of the reviews found that parts were missing and I figured that we would have time to get them replaced. Thankfully this was not the case! It is a lovely lovely kitchen, both of our son and daughter enjoy playing with it! We found that the magnetic doors were to strong for our 15 month old daughter to open. So my husband put some masking tape over them. Our daughter can open and shut them much easier now.

Perfect Play Kitchen
Beautiful product! Was a bit sceptical after reading other reviews on this kitchen but i need not have worried as myself and my 15 year old daughter managed easily to construct it in about one hour. The kitchen is very good quality and my grand daughter who is 20 months old absolutely loves it. It will last her for many years! I also bought the wooden accessories that you can get from JL and they are excellent as well.

Lovely Little Kitchen
I was a bit dubious about buying this kitchen after seeing so many poor reviews!! But i am in no way dissapointed!! I bought this product two weeks ago online...
The item was delivered very quickly by John Lewis, box in perfect condition! Given the item is for my daughters christmas I decided to build it up in plenty time incase there was any faults as previously noted in reviews so we had ample time to get a replacement organised if needed! My partner sound asleep on the sofa I decided to make a start myself, the item was well packaged, and every piece in immaculate condition. The instructions were very clear, and easy to follow, after 44 minutes (yes I timed myself, as didn't believe it would take 2 hours... and by golly it didnt)!! I didn't even have to wake my partner for help! Im not experienced in DIY or furniture building, but you certinally dont have to be for this small kitchen!!
This is a very sturdy kitchen, which looks lovely, and has everything a little cook needs!! I would highly reccomend it, its sad that some people have had bad experiences with the kitchen however!
