Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Really love how easy it is to store and to take with me when I go and visit clients. Not sure if I got an unlucky one, but my step stool does not "snap" in place when opened. It would help to make it feel more secure if it did have a secure snap to it when opened. However, with that said I have not had any trouble when using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Step Up! I love this folding step stool. I had my closet rebuilt & the top storage is too high for me to reach. This stool comes in very handy & it even folds up for extra space. My best purchase at your store other then the baskets I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second purchase of this step stool because it is just so handy. I’m under 5’3” and this one little step allows me to reach the upper shelf in my kitchen and laundry room with ease. It is easy to store nearby with its thin silhouette when folded. The price is reasonable. I think you will find this little household helper is one you will be using at least several times per week as I do

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact step stool This is one of several I have around my home. My young grandsons use them to reach the sink to wash their hands or to get a book that’s just out of reach. Easy to store and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent compact step stool This is our second Folding Step Stool because we were so please with our 1st purchase. Our 1st one is being used so I can easily step up into a tall truck without splitting out my pants or straining any muscles. We have tied a strap to the stool so I can pull up the stool after I am inside the truck, fold the stool up and store it away. When I am ready to get out, I unfold the stool, lower it to the ground and easily step onto it, then onto the ground. Our 2nd one is being used as a means to see out a high window to view a bird feeder so I know when I need to refill it. This window is in our bathroom so there is not a lot of room to store the stool. It is conveniently folded up and leaning against the wall nearby, ready to be used anytime I want it. I weigh just over 200 pounds so I am careful as to how I step up onto the platform, always per the instructions that were attached to the stool when we purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right SIZE Gets the job done; its small and easy to hide it away. Simple operation as well. Even something as simple as a step stool can be well engineered!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from folding step stool Being short and not being able to reach some of my kitchen cabinets this is the answer. It is small enough that it is open most of the time and doesn't get in the way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from step stool I purchased several of this same step stool a few years ago from the Container Store and I like the old one much better. It is about an inch taller, has more hinged areas on the legs and top, open & closes and locks in place better. Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Step stool Love the fact it folds up and can be stored in a compact fashion. Wish it was a little bit higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable stool!! I needed a step stool that didn't take up much room and this one works great!! My favorite color is lime green and it fits perfectly behind the door in my utility room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase with little children I bought this for my 4 year old to use in the kitchen to reach the sink so he can wash his hands and to help with rinsing his cereal bowls in the morning. He can easily fold it and restore it between the cabinet and the refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size is Just Right This is the perfect size for storing - it's slim like a book and fits in all types of places. At 5'8" I usually don't need a step stool, but I recently moved into a new home with really high cabinets and ceilings. This stool is the perfect height for helping me reach the top shelf in my kitchen and my closets. And, the price can't be beat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing! I have always joked if I could suddenly be 8 inches taller life would be great. Well, with this stool that is exactly what happened. I am only 5 feet tall so reaching up to even the 2nd shelf in the kitchen was impossible. Now I can! I had a bulky step stool, but this is so much more convenient. I had another one but gave it to my mother. I was without a stool for two days and felt completely helpless. I love the green color but wish the polka dots were white and not black; it would match my kitchen better. Other than that, this is absolutely perfect! At only $12.99 and able to withstand 400 pounds, it is a true bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes life easier! I bought this so my husband, who is recovering from a spinal laminectomy, could prop up his feet to put on shoes or to put lotion on his legs. Worked so well for him I am using it for that purpose also. We fold it up and prop it against the chair we sit on when we are using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have one in kitchen, bathroom, laundry & garage I bought 2 of these loved them so much. I ended up buying 1 for every room. I love that they fold up small and you can slide them in cabinets or behind doors. I use the one in the garage to sit on or kneel on sometimes when I'm working in the yard. It just makes life easier when you have kids. My daughter was constantly hanging on my cabinet doors in the kitchen to climb the counter. This helped. She can reach now.Also, no more tripping over wood ones and plastic ones the bathroom someone forgot to move when the little kids need to wash their hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy little step stool I keep mine in the kitchen to reach into the tall upper cabinets. Stable and compact!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stool ever!!! I love everything about this stool. It can hold up to 300 pounds so when I have to organize rather large things I can place the boxes on the stool. I use it in the kitchen on a daily basis, and it is the safest stool I have spent money on. My boyfriend just used it for outdoor lighting and he really liked it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from step up great for my grandkids to reach the kitchen sink faucet; yes, a tad short for some adults, but quite useful just the same. love the color choices; have a black and white for the kitchen, and just purchased the green for the to washer/dryer and now i can reach the items on shelf above; easy to clean; love that they fold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This stool is so handy. I can fold it up and take anywhere with it's nice handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comes in handy all the time I love this handy stool. I can never reach the laundry room shelves and kitchen cabinets or even the deep washer tub I have! Just make sure you properly step onto it as my husband broke my rhino 1 by stepping onto incorrectly in the center and not on the edges with both feet. But definitely recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough height for what I needed I purchased the Easy Fold Step Stool because I was looking for a smallish, folding step stool to keep in our walk-in closet so I could reach things on the highest shelves. Thought this stool would be perfect because it folds flat and out of the way - but it gave me little more height than I could achieve on my own standing on my tip toes. So - back it went and I replaced it with the Chrome Slim Folding Step Stool which is perfect! Looks cool and folds nice and flat so that it's out of the way but handy when I need it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the design has recently changed and OUCH What is pictured is the old design. The handle is no longer at the top. Now, instead, the handle is in the middle and makes it much more difficult to open. I owned 2 of the old style and never hurt myself. Went to buy a 3rd because I loved the stool so much and saw that it was redesigned and figured it would be better. Definitely not the case. I pinched my fingernail and it was VERY painful. Not sure why they redesigned but I'll be looking for a replacement as I can't keep injuring myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Handy! I love this stool. I use it all over the house for reaching the top shelves in my kitchen cabinets, pantry, and closets. It folds up into a very narrow piece that can be stored almost anywhere. Don't know what a short girl like me ever did without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Compact This step stool is exactly what I was looking for and more. Although I am an average 5'5, I cannot reach the second shelf in my tall cabinets. I have a small, compact kitchen and this stool is a perfect accessory. It is very easy to expand and when I am done I just collapse it and it fits perfectly under the sink. Barely takes up any space!
