Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed it for! I bought this to use at work on my desk. I was needing something tall enough to have a piece of equipment underneath! It fit perfectly and I put another piece of equipment on top of it to save desktop space! Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warped Wood I love the look of this small shelf. However, when I removed it from the box and set it up, I discovered the wood was warped. It's not a major warping, but it's definitely not flat. Unfortunately, I live a reasonably long drive from the Container Store and was in no mood to drive all the way back there for an exchange so I'm living with a defective product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke immediately I bought this in the store, so you could say I brought this on myself, but it looked very nice while standing. The cashier folded it down and I thought "oh wow it can be folded away, so great!". I normally love products I get at the container store, and I expected to love this. However, when I brought it home and tried setting it back up (having read the instructions on how to open it), one of the legs just flew right off, with the screw just breaking out of the board. Seeing the reviews now, I see it happened to others as well. Wish I had looked here before buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great overall product, but has flaw . I like the bamboo shelves, but the mounts for the legs are cheaply made and very flimsy. they bend when you open the legs. . This makes shelf unstable. I kept product and replaced mounts with bracket as I needed the shelves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lower cabinet shelves In lieu of pullouts, I opted for these. They are pretty sturdy and do the job as I expected. The bamboo color are close to the maple interior cabinets, so I am pleased that they worked for me. I used these in all three sizes for my lower cabinets and was able to organize and access everything so much better :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I now have four of these shelves. I use them to hold my many tea tins and cups. They look good, but more importantly, they're extremely sturdy so I never have to worry about them collapsing unless I do it. Another thing I like is that I started with two, then bought two more at different times, yet the tops are exactly even and look very good and coordinated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke immediately The screws & legs all popped off on the first day the product arrived. I love the Container Store but this product did not match the company’s standards. It was clearly assembled incorrectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Caution buying without seeing I'm happy with these, but I bought them in the store and I'm glad I did--I found several with bent or misplaced legs, or with rough finishes on the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I got two shelves to replace a soft plastic shelf which had warped . The shelf is very sturdy and high enough so things fit under it . Having a groove in the shelf to stack another shelf on it is a good idea to prevent slipping. I'm using this to store boxes and bags of non-perishable food. They were on sale, which made them even better. I recommend this product .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful way to create more cabinet space! Living in a New York City apartment, any way I can make more of out of my cabinet/closet space is a WIN!! This product is made from beautiful bamboo and is very sturdy!
Date published: 2018-07-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I sort of like them Okay, so theoretically these should be perfect, except the legs are attached in different spots on the two shelves on different occasions and the stacking grooves are in complete different spots too. I am not sure how well stacking will work now, and that is the reason I got them. One will not even fit into the other! Both may be going back next month when I make the 2+ hour trip to Little Rock. However the bamboo feels sturdy, and over all they seem sturdy and will hold quite a bit. Just not sure how well they will stack because of the issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great concept, BUT........ Purchased 2 of these to put in a large cabinet over my refrigerator in our new home. As I attempted to open the feet of the shelf the plate holding the feet popped off and the screws flew off across the room. My husband and I drove 1 hr 15 minutes to the store and we are not driving that distance again to return it. We are requesting a refund, a new one to be sent to us or a mailer to return this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Stackable Shelf Awesome Product. No instruction sheet to warn you not to grab legs and pull to open. You remove legs and place in open position to avoid bending and/or breaking catch....Thanks to previous reviewer who mentioned what happened to her. Awesome product.....I love the two I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my kitchen needed I bought several of these shelves for a large open cabinet in my kitchen. They look great and add just the right touch to my very small kitchen. The bamboo mixed with the chrome looks really sharp. The color of the bamboo is also beautiful giving it a higher end look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy and Cheap-Looking Though they look nice in the picture, these shelves are cheap-looking and flimsy. They are not stable and fall over easily. I bought them as a gift for my mother-in-law and was very embarrassed by the poor quality. There were no reviews on this at the time that I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from where have you been all of my life? These bamboo stacking shelves took a long time to get. But worth the wait. They are strong, look good and reasonable. I think they will last a very long time. I've stacked cans and other heavy items on them and they're holding up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Addition to My Custom Cabinets I recently went through a major kitchen renovation including custom cabinets. As I started to put things away, I didn't want to create the same mess that we had in the old cabinets - I needed an extra shelf and I didn't want the cabinet makers to add anything because I wanted the fix to be flexible. I went over to the Container Store and grabbed one of these bamboo shelves because of the high-quality - they are sturdy and the bamboo shelf allows for small items to stay still (as opposed to the metal shelves). I have not stacked, so I can't review that function, but I have purchased a second one for another cabinet because they look great and enhance rather than muddy my beautiful new custom cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer service made my day! The stacking shelves are perfect. But the most important and best experience is with customer service. I ordered 2 lazy-susan / turntables for my lower cabinets, I knew the time of my UPS drop and had my kitchen in total disarray, waiting for my delivery On arrival I discovered, that in shipping, both had been damaged. I was so disappointed, I called customer service and was pleasantly surprised by the outstanding service I received. I'm now spinning and stacking in my newly organized cabinets and will always use "The Container Store" when the need arises to organize another corner of my home.
Date published: 2014-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! The stacking shelves are great. I have large lower cabinets without any shelves, which means lots of wasted space. These shelves are sturdy enough for heavier items without sagging and provide all of the extra space i need. Also great that they come in different sizes fo more custom organization!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for making more desk space I purchased these because I needed to access more surface area on my desk, so I wanted to go with vertical storage. These do what I need and they look great! And the medium gingham storage bins fit perfectly underneath them so I don't have to see all the clutter!

Community Q&A

Can these be used inside a bathroom (including shower), on the sink counter?

Asked by: VickyD
I would definitely say it can be used in the bathroom on the sink counter. However, I am not so sure about the shower because the metal might rust over time.

What is the weight capacity?

Asked by: DouglasB
Don't have the specs, but these will hold a reasonable amount of weight. Noticed Reviewers have used these shelves for all kinds of storage. Might be helpful if you will read reviews and look at the many photos of shelves in many different storage situations. They are quite sturdy. The Container Store has had these for at least 6 years. That speaks volumes about the quality and sturdiness.

How do you pull open the legs?

Instructions say "gently" pull, but the legs seem not to want to fold up. When I pull more, I'm bending the metal.
Asked by: Neil77
I bought two today. Followed the guidelines and even checked response on this chain. But the metal got bent and a screw came off!
