This is a very narrow piece, and thus much better for countertop use. I purchased this for a very tall and deep-ish shelf. Since I couldn't use all that height on my shelf, I thought I would add another shelf to maximize the space. But it is too narrow to accommodate what I needed. I kept it anyways. Overall, it has an industrial quality because of the stainless steel quality. However, I like that kind of look. One of the legs was machined poorly but Overstock quickly replaced the piece. The rest of the shelf went together easily and was very stable. I suspect it could handle a decent amount of weight because of the materials. Overall, the quality is very good though it may be a bit expensive for what it is. And if this is fit for your purpose, I strongly recommend it. But if you're using it to maximize space in a cupboard or cabinet, carefully assess if its dimensions would work for you.
I like this shelf unit. However, assembly was difficult. Instructions don't offer a word, not a single word. Only photos and a list of items. I'm generally good at assembling most anything. If not for that issue, I would have given a higher overall rating, as well as a higher overall value rating. The value went way down when I spent about an hour assembling it! The depth of this is much smaller than I expected. This is my fault for not paying attention to the size. For this reason, I'm using it in a different space than I intended it for. Still, it looks great and serves a purpose.
All parts plus the diagram for the shelves were included, and while it took me some time to attach the smaller shelf to the larger, the results were sturdy and nice looking in an odd cubby below a kitchen cabinet. What I'm using it for is a holder for daily items such such as a dog kibble jar, trivets, salt and pepper, spoon rest, etc. Note the height of the shelves when you plan their function. What I liked was the depth, which allows room for food prep by ovens and stove. I am still considering using the unit within a cabinet which has unused vertical space to make better use of lesser used items.
