This product is good. I chose it for its 16" size because I have a spot in my new kitchen that is only 17" wide. I figured the 16" size would be perfect for that area as well as the rest of the kitchen. The height, by standing on the seat part of the stool, is helpful in getting into the top of the new 42" cabinets. My only complaint with this stool is the fact that the steps move out from under the seat area where they are stored when the stool is moved for use. I have taken a strip of double sided Velcro and wrapped it around the back legs of the stool to prevent the steps from moving when the stool is moved. Otherwise the stool is very handy and it look nice placed against a wall when not in use.
This is a great stool (identical to one I used as a child when I visited grandma!) once assembly is figured out. The printed directions were confusing and one of the parts was labeled "bottom" when it was actually the top of the piece.
It reminds me of my youth, when these step stool could be found in every kitchen. It is cute, a cheery, cherry red. It is a chair in the corner where people can sit and keep me company while I cook. Then it is a step stool when I need those items on the top shelf. It is small, lightweight and practical.
