I have tall ceiling and high cabinets so I need a stool to sit always in plain view. Having a wooden one looks so much nicer than a utilitarian metal one! I felt safer on the Utilitarian one but maybe this one just takes getting use to. The metal we used as an extra chair but this one doesn't work for that. Serves it's purpose and looks so much better!
This step stool is very sturdy. It is easy to fold up (pull up on the latch) and stow away. The steps are wide,. I bought the step ladder because my tall hubby puts things on the top shelf in the kitchen cabinets, and after over 30 years, I'm afraid that one wrong swipe with the fliiter turner / tongs, or any other kitchen utensil that I can get to rake things off that top shelf may hit me in the head. The ladder is cheaper than a trip to the urgent care :-) BTW, I bought 2... my daughter is having the same problem.... she shouldn't have to wait 30 years either . :-)
We needed a stepladder for the kitchen in order to get to the back of the topmost cupboards and to reach the top shelves of the pantry. This little ladder has been great. It is very easy to carry around and it folds out and locks with ease. There is a lever you have to pull up to fold the ladder, so there is no worry about it collapsing. When it is folded up it is only about 4 inches wide, so storing it shouldn't be too much of a problem. This was a great addition to the house, and it sure beats standing on the dining room chairs when we want to reach something.
