This is adequate, but the top step is so close to the folded up seat that it's not very useful. I got this for my elderly mother's kitchen because I thought that it would be easier to use since she could hang onto the back while she climbed it, as opposed to using one of those short folding ladders that don't have a back. She can't use the top step. Granted, she's OLD. It would probably be ok for people who are more nimble. The color is stark white. I wish there had been more color options.
The seat is comfortable. easy to put together. I don't like the hinge bracket on the seat, it's plastic. although the plastic hinge brackets don't affect the safety or purpose of the chair/steps tool, it lowers the quality by a little in 'my book'. Overall, I love the look and stability of it. Got a great deal on it through Overstock.com.
