Based on the reviews of this product, I was really disappointed in the real thing. They do not look at all like stainless steel (for those of you hoping to match kitchen appliances), nor do they pull off the trendy "metal" look. The real finish is a glossy, fake-aluminum type effect. Pay attention to the height of the product before you order--- these are only two feet tall! They looked ridiculous in front of my over-sized island. Unfortunately, these will be going back. They just do NOT cut it from a style perspective.
