Slim Folding Step Stool
Love this stepstool. It's the perfect height for reaching tall kitchen cabinets. And it stores perfectly in a narrow kitchen cabinet (it's about 22" high x 1.5" wide when folded). Easy to fold up, too.

STEP ON IT
What's there to say.....It's a step stool. I step on it and I can reach stuff I couldn't before.

Exactly what I wanted!
I had been looking for a step stool that was preferably made of metal, small but sturdy and without the usual tall handle. All I saw were the plastic one steps. I couldn't believe it when I found this while roaming through the store for the very first time. My mouth dropped and I actually said to myself, OMG! I bought it right away and I love it. It's so easy to use.

Sturdy stool... almost too sturdy!
Got this stool for my master bedroom closet, as we have some pretty high shelves in there that I regularly need access to... This is an awesome, sturdy stool at a great price. It is perfect for my intended purpose, especially since it has two steps-- and, when it folds up, it requires verrrry little storage space (about the size of half a Greater Houston Area phone book). This stool is SO sturdy, sometimes it's difficult to collapse when you're done using it. (Directions are simply stated and firmly attached to the underside of the lowest step-- duh!) So, I'm sure I'll keep this for YEARS to come-- much like everything else I've ever bought from Container Store, it's built to last!

Love this step stool
This is an excellent step stool. It is very sturdy. It folds up easily and takes up a minimual amount of room.

Easy Fold Stool
My daughter needed an easy stool for her closet in order to reach items that were out of arm's reach. This was a good product with a good price.

wonderful tiny step stool with punch
I held my breath whenever I purchased this product due to the previous reviewers dislike of the release button being too difficult to activate. My step stool must have been redesigned because the red release button works wonderfully! Also, I purchased this because the step stool I bought at a different store had a large handle, and my children couldn't quite figure out where to stand, because if you think about it, do you stand behind the huge handle, or try to stand on the platform/top step in front of the handle. I am glad the container store design puts the handle on the side of the platform/top step to utilize the entire surface area for standing. My kids haven't had any trouble using this and I feel it is much safer than the "typical" step stool. I really like using it too.

this is a great little stool!
I love this stool because it is so sturdy and folds up to only like a 1 3/4 inch. It fits in the narrow opening by the fridge.

Reliable step stool
This step stool honestly just happened to be bought because we didn't have one and saw it while browsing, but I love how sturdy it feels. And obviously it helps me get up in places I cannot easily reach. It is tricky to close, the red button really doesn't fully release, but once you get the hang of how to close it it's not a problem. If I could explain I would, but at least I know it won't close on me!

This fabulously sturdy stepstool helps me everywhere around my home. It's slim profile allows me to stow it away easily and I love the rubber grips on the step surface. Well worth the cost. I know this one will last for decades.

This is the absolute best step stool ever! We own 2 - one for in the house, one for the garage and gave one to our granddaughter for Christmas when we saw it was on her list. We have the chrome stools because I wasn't sure about chipping of the white finish. You won't regret this purchase.

Great, handy, sturdy!
Great little step stool. I'm 5'6. Being a midget isn't so fun sooo... now I can easily reach the top of high cabinets. Ta da! Seriously though, I've had mine for years. It's stores away very skinny and fits into small places.

Difficult to close
This is a good size and does fold very slim for storage, but it is very difficult to close. The red button you are supposed to use to close doesn't work at all. To close you have to actually move the metal connection latch with your fingers which could very easily lead to pinched fingers. I will be returning this item.

a must have for the closet
This step stool is fabulous. I bought it for my new elfa closet since I know have shelves up to the top. It's lightweight, slides into the closet and doesn't take up space and it supports all of my 185 pounds! I love it. Oh yes, very ez to open and close.

Sturdy enough for heavyweights
I purchased an identical stool from the Container Store but the weight rating was higher (300lbs maybe?) Not sure if this version is actually different, but the one we have looks the same and it has worked well.

Simply, sturdy, great value
Compact and sturdy, this step stool provides just enough lift to reach top shelves in closets. Folds down to a very slim profile that can be tucked away unnoticed. We own tow of these and find them indispensable for closets.

Best stepstool I've ever owned
I've had this stepstool for a long time, opened and closed it a million times -- very durable, especially for the money.

Great compact step stool
I bought this step stool to access upper shelves in my bedroom closet, so I wanted something compact that I could also store in the closet without taking up too much space. It is not hard to fold up, but, for some reason, the red button on mine didn't seem to work very will. With a little playing around with it, I figured out how to easily fold it up. Not sure if this is "user error" or a small defect with the stool I have. Otherwise, a great product.

Small size great for small kitchen
It is terrific for my small kitchen. Some others mentioned difficult to close but I have no problems with it at all.

This stool is very sturdy, and I love that it folds up so thin

Great little stool
This is a great little stool. I bought it to fit under my kitchen sink. Unfortunately it is just a tad to tall to fit through the opening straight up and down, but will fit if turned just a little.

Super compact! Not the simplest to fold
I love how compactly this folds down, it fits great into an unused cabinet in my kitchen. When open, it is plenty sturdy to allow children to reach the counter or sink. It can be a little tricky to fold down.

Handy closet ladder
I have an Elfa closet and have needed a ladder to climb up and reach some of handbags on the top shelves. I'm very pleased with my puchase and received it fast. Its light and convenient to tuck away. Its the perfect ladder for my closet and the sale price was right.

Best Stool for the Price
Great stool I keep in my closet folded up. Sturdy and metal construction make it one of the best stools for a closet. I bought a smaller plastic stool at the same price and it broke already.
Folding the stool is a little awkward. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars.
Still highly recommended.

A great little stepstool
Folds up very compact -- fits in my broom closet -- but feels incredibly sturdy when I'm on it. I've only used it once or twice, but it's a clear improvement over trying to balance on a chair!

good "extra" step stool
This is a sleek little step stool - great for those "just out of reach" things that you sometimes stretch to grab. It is smaller than our other step stool, referred to on my paperwork as a "mimi" - so don't expect a big one! It could easily tuck away into a closet without taking up much space and be available in a moment when you need it! And I especially liked being able to order and pay for it on line so it was ready at the checkout counter when I came in to get it!

Nice solid step stool at an excellent price. I shopped around locally and saw a catalog with this stool. It fits perfectly in my pantry without taking up any room and is safe and solid.
