Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rew1164 This is the best cart I've ever owned
I purchased this cart a few years ago and I love it! When we were shopping for this cart, my husband pointed out this one with the swivel front wheels! Yes it really makes a difference, turns like a dream. This cart is sturdy- I lug cases of water, cases of soda and all my grocery bags piled right to the top. The wheels have never fallen off, the cart is like brand new. I have the blue liner and that is heavy duty too! We go to farmers markets, swap meets, and shopping! I never leave home without it. It's been the best cart I ever owned. I've bought plenty of cheap quality ones that are flimsy, this one is great! I highly recommend! Maybe the others didn't put the wheels on correctly? Sometimes I even screw on a dual cup holder (like for buggies) when we're out all day at swap meets and flea markets. Folds right up and fits in the trunk. Buy it, you will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Julie123 This is my third cart
I purchased my first cart two years ago when we moved to a high rise building. It's invaluable for getting groceries from the car to the apartment. I bought my second cart for my husband so he could get his dry cleaning home without having the hangers cut off the circulation in his fingers.
We use the carts at the farmers' markets every week in the summer, and use them to load and unload the car when we travel over the holidays. I purchased a third cart so our guests have one available to use when they visit.
These carts are sturdy and easy to fold and put in the car. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jamila Caution if utilizing in a city.
I felt compelled to share this assessment, as I am a Container Store devotee, former employee, and lifelong customer.
NYC is home base of the shopping cart culture. And those of us who use them to haul things to and fro, the "four-wheel drive" of this model is second to none. You can maneuver it easily with one hand, which is a formidable quality when navigating uneven sidewalks.
I originally attributed the wheel coming off to overuse, taking it up and down subway stairs and the like. I was completely prepared to buy a new one (which would be cart #3!) after having to completely abandon mine in a subway station this weekend. I decided to read the reviews online this time and saw the the wheel separation was not a one off. Ultimately this concerned me, so I decided to forgo my re-purchase, but wanted to add to reviews so The Container Store could hopefully report this design flaw to the manufacturer and maybe it could get fixed.
Additionally, I read the comment made to one 'wheel falling off' review stating "the first time you put the wheel on you have to push the wheel really hard into the slot until you hear a click, which signifies that the wheel is properly placed." NOT TRUE. I am well aware of how the assemblage works, and tried to "re-snap" at least 50 times, but it eventually falls off.
ELFA forever. But steel shopping cart? SMH.

Should have read the reviews first. Only used it a few time and the wheels fall off. Very disappointed. Poor quality.

I am pregnant and need something easy to maneuver around city streets so I can do some errands in the neighborhood. This is great. Also I am tall and I dont have to hunch over to push it. The front wheels are a dream. My mom saw the cart and now she wants one too!

Finally a cart that can take all the stuff I throw in it. I've gone through 3 of the smaller carts only to overfill them and they end up breaking. This one can take more weight and it has swivel wheels. Love it. Let's see if it will hold up to my usage.....

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Citychic Broke
I used this cart less than 20 times, and it's already broken. Luckily for me it broke as I got home, or I would have been exceptionally furious to be stranded with a cart full of food. The cart says it has a capacity of 66 lbs, but mine was definitely not loaded with more than 50. The wheels are also particularly awful. They get stuck on uneven sidewalks, and forget about crossing bumpy roads. I had to stand on the corner waving cars past because it would take so long to cross the street. I should have returned it, but I thought maybe it would hold up. It didn't. Look elsewhere if you want a cart that lasts more than a couple months.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CraftOrganizer Great cart
Cart is a wee bit bigger than I wanted, but I liked the moveable wheels in front. I read the reviews about the smaller cart with immovable wheels and decided on this one. I took it to a flea market and found it to be super convenient, easily maneuvered, and roomy. I did not buy the liner - I plan to sew a cute one on my own - but I'll definitely need one to keep the small stuff from falling through. Cart seems sturdy so far . . . time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GailW A great shopping cart
Bought it and the liner and used it and love it. The surveys about the back wheels coming off are due to the fact they must have not been attached correctly. I got mine on and they will stay on forever.

My mother in law needed a cart like this to move her laundry around and take her trash out, so I did some research and found this one. She loves it and uses it all the time. It appears quite sturdy. It folds up very slim and easily. Great size. Just got the liner in the mail and it looks like it is good quality too. A winner.

I seldom wrote reviews, but this cart has been awesome! We now live in an apartment complex where we need a cart to tote our groceries and other purchases to and from the car. This one does the trick! Love it!

I purchased a cart from the Container Store eons ago and ran the wheels off of it until the rubber was peeling off so knew i needed another one.
I LOVE the Container Store and would only consider purchasing my cart from their offerings. I love the one I got. Much more sturdy and easy to maneuver than I had hoped! I love the way it wheels around and love that it stays shut when hanging. My other one did not.
Love the Container Store and all things in it :-)

I purchased this for a first time apartment owner who has to go out to purchase her groceries and to do laundry. Found two different colored bags to use with the cart on the website. One for the laundry haul and one for the groceries. Arrived in record time (albeit UPS had their issues) but it was easy to put together and used immediately. She couldn't be happier and like always I think the Container Store products rock...keep up the excellent selection and I am sure I will be back.

We just moved into a high rise apartment with an elevator from a large house. Needed something to carry large or multiple items so as not to have to make so many trips to car. Bought this Steele Cart and have used it everyday to carry multiple things! It is sturdy, durable, and rolls very smoothly so that it is super easy to pull or push - even when loaded down. This was one of the best investment we have made. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gshabx2 Shop with a Cart
Ok, so I love this product! I bought it for my 26 year old young lady, I now call my daughter. I could easily recall what it was like to have to drag your clothes to the Laundromat and managing without one of these can make life difficult when you don't own a car. So, I did what any new mother would do and when she took it out for her first spin, she took a video of her strolling the new cart along the sidewalk with her cloths pilled high and in a proud voice expressed her gratitude. I have to admit it felt awesome to see her at ease going to the laundromat. I'm sure she will use it to the grocery store as well. I do have to tell you, I initially thought it was expensive and you have to buy the inside cover separately, which was another $17.00. All in all, it was worth it! So, get strolling and make your life or someone you love a little easer. :)

This is the second time I've bought this cart. One was stolen in my condo and I got another one.It rolls smoothly, holds a lot, folds down easily and fits in my trunk. I don't think they show the cart in black, just silver, but it is available in black and that's what I got. I bought a few other carts before I found this one and the was no comparison in the ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lemony Nice Cart, But ...
This is a perfectly nice collapsible cart with some good features, like swivelling front wheels and a nice big basket (good for 2 bags of laundry). It doesn't look like your grandma's shopping cart. However, much as I appreciate the Container Store and love most of their products, next time I'd go to a big box store for a better price.

This is my 4th cart in 6 years. None of them can compare with the quality of this cart. It's sturdy, easy to attach the wheels and folds up perfectly. This is the best cart I've owned and based on the quality, I'll have it for a very long time.

This purchase has been such a trip saver when I do my monthly shopping. My apartment is on the 3rd floor and not having to make multiple trips to get items from the car is wonderful !
I must admit I think I bought more than usual simply because I knew I had the convenience of my new nifty cart. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by missemma I love my little cart
This is my second purchase of this cart and liner. The first one that I bought, I gave to my sister-in-law (about a year ago) who does not live close to a Container store. She also loves it. She has back problems, so she leaves it in her car, to carry in her purchases and miscellaneous other items.
I got another one as soon as I got back to San Antonio. The only problem was that the store was out of green liners so I had to settle for a black one. No problem, I just bought another green liner at the store here in San Antonio last week.

Since I live in an apartment and live on the 4th floor (with an elevator) I needed something that could haul groceries from my car without the need for a second trip...wow, this cart can hold a LOT! It is very sturdy and love how the front wheels swivel! Has a nice soft foam grip on the handle and is extremely easy to maneuver, even with a heavy load...highly recommend!! Happy shopper! :~]

I am so happy that I made this purchase. Looking back - I have no idea why I didn't think to get one of these earlier! This particular model has swiveling front casters which make a huge difference. I was really glad that I actually went into the Container Store and 'test drove' the carts. I have used this multiple times since purchasing it and am sure I will use if for a long time to come. I also purchased the liner, which makes life so easy when you get home. I just lift the liner out and carry it wherever I need to go to unload my stuff :)

I just moved to a lofty apartment and this cart is perfect for getting my items from the garage to the apartment with ease! I love the size and the sturdiness! I also bought the green bag the slips inside and love how it covers my purchases. This is a must for anyone who needs to carry their items a distance.
