Jumbo Utility Cart
Worth every penny!
Storage in my kitchen is severely limited, and finding space for unrefrigerated produce was always a challenge. Your storage cart proved to be the ideal solution. The shelves pull out very easily, and are generously sized. I never have a problem finding space on the four shelves for my potatoes, onions, garlic, bananas, pineapple and more. Now, whenever I need an onion, all I have to do is reach out to the cart, pull out the shelf, and grab one! Unpacking the produce from the grocery store bags is a breeze! And when it's time to wash the floor, I just wheel the cart out to the next room, and wheel it back in when I'm done. We all love it!

Shocked at quality
I saw this item in the store and thought it would be perfect for my classroom. I teach 4 periods a day and need 4 separate spaces to collect papers. I ordered online and picked up in store for a special promotion to receive 10% off. This cart rolled no more than a few yards in the parking lot at the Container Store, where it entered my boyfriend's car. Then, it rolled a few more yards from his car to mine, inside his parking deck. It remained there, untouched, overnight. I went to my car today to move it into my classroom. When I picked it up, one wheel had broken off. I was shocked! I love the Container Store and believe they carry quality items. I'm hoping that there just happened to be a weak wheel, or possibly a poorly constructed product. Regardless, I am returning it and will not get another one. If it breaks by that small amount of use, my 6th graders will demolish it in less than a week of school, no questions asked.
This does not change my opinion about the Container Store and I will continue to shop there - but I would definitely not recommend this product to a friend (or enemy!).

The jumbo utility cart is exactly the size that I needed. However it is very cheaply made. When I opended the box one of the wheels was in pieces in the bottom of the box. And one of the baskets was badly cracked along the edge. Since the baskets rest on the edges this means that basket is unusable. I patched the cart together as best as I could because it came in a very large box that I would not have been able to wrangle into my car so that I could ship it back.

The cart to do cartwheels over!
I LOVE this versatile cart. The price is right, it cleans easily, and its uses are limited only by your imagination. Ours is still in great shape after many years. We first used it as an easy way to empty kitchen drawers and move things to another room when we were having our kitchen re-done. Then we used it to hold cans in the pantry. Then we used it for kids' papers and school supplies. Now it's in our lower level, and three of the baskets hold towels. We removed the fourth basket and placed it on our kitchen counter to go hold fruit and bread. This cart is great. Come to think of it, I think we'll buy another one!
