    I had really liked my EZ Step Folding stool until a recent incident has prompted me to caution its users. My husband was standing on the stool when it came apart in 3 pieces and caused him to fall and suffer serious injury. Even though his injury did require surgery and a long period of rehab, he was fortunate it wasn't more serious. We feel that this caution is needed for others using this product.

        I am 5 feet tall and need a stool or chair to reach up to my top kitchen shelves. This is perfect because it lets me reach those high shelves, it is very stable and it stands upright when folded which I like. I had another 2 step stool but it has to lean against something when folded and would be in the way.

          The last one I had that was identical to this one lasted more than 10 years with daily use! You will be surprised how often you use this product. Much better and safer than standing on a chair. I really like the way it stands on it's own out of the way when not in use.

                  I purchase this folding stepstool after reading the good reviews and have been very pleased with it. I'm 4'11' and use this stepstool to reach my higher kitchen cabinets. The top step is about 17-18" high. It's VERY sturdy, with a wider step than most & I feel secure when using it. It folds up nicely and stands up by itself, too. Would have given 5 stars, but it does take a little time to unfold and I must use two hands to do it.

                  I have put many "repair" miles on this step stool. I have owned it for many years. No wear issues. . . . It is so easy to open with one hand. I wish there was a 3-step model with wide second and third steps. Worth every penny. Stands up in the closet - no leaning on the wall.

                      I use the footstool in my daycare so the children can wash their hands by themselves. This footstool works well in the small bathroom the children use. I can fold it on weekends so it takes up less space, and the steps are taller, so they can reach the faucet.

                      I'm short - cabinets etc often just out of reach. This is dandy. Easy to open, sturdy, stands up by itself to store - a happy surprise I didn't expect. Looks good, re design.

                      I do use the wall or some such to support myself when I get to the top step but that's probably because I'm an 'older' consumer. Its not really a 'problem' and I knew the configuration when I bought it. Didn't want another hand-hold collapsible that took up space and had to be put away because it was larger

                      Handy extra step that will not rust. Seems sturdy for me at 185 lbs. Folds down but is still a bit tall for stashing in short spaces. Worth the extra step.

                      This stool is awesome. It differs from others because it stands when folded and has no bulky handle to get in the way. I use it for a mounting block to get on my horse. I take it in the barn to store when I am not using it, and it doesn't take a lot of space. My only concern is how easily it will come clean with the mud and such from outdoor use. Otherwise I love it!

                      We wanted a two-step ladder that was stable and able to hold 200+ lbs. And fold up small enough to store out of sight in a kitchen cabinet or easily behind free standing furniture near the kitchen. This was the only such item we could find.

                      Very satisfied with use albeit we've only used it several times.

                        I use the Rubbermaid Step Stool to reach items that are in the top shelves of cabinets and closets and for cleaning windows.
                        It is lightweight and easy to move and will fold to make for easy storage. The best part it is very sturdy and I feel safe when using it.

                        I have an elegant white and black kitchen and my pantry is built to extend quite high. This step stool is fairly easy to tuck against the cupboards and pull out when needed. I do wish it was a bit dressier, but all in all it is the best I have seen. During renovations I did lose one of the rubber feet and if I want this ladder to look good will have to replace the ladder as I don't see this part to order. Another quality is that the steps are a reasonable size with grips.

                          I use it as a seat and as a step stool to reach higher shelves.

                              This is "the safe alternative" to the narrow 2 step folding aluminum step stools. It's cost in mid to upper $20's is worth the stability maintained when using it. It's steps are wider than aluminum step stools and are Rubbermaid skid resistant. There should be no falling off the step stool! It's overall open separation space also help make it more safe to use. Does fold easily for storage.

                                    I had really liked my EZ Step Folding stool until a recent incident has prompted me to caution its users. My husband was standing on the stool when it came apart in 3 pieces and caused him to fall and suffer serious injury. Even though his injury did require surgery and a long period of rehab, he was fortunate it wasn't more serious. We feel that this caution is needed for others using this product.

                                    This is a great step stool and stores nicely. My second use for this stool is a small TV table for my grandchildren. They sit on the first step with their feet to the inside and place the plate and drink on the top step! Perfect for up to about 5yr olds.

                                        This stool helps me out in all different ways as I am only 5 feet tall ie: reaching up high in the cupboards, changing light bulbs in our ceiling fans, painting and hanging up pictures. It doesn't take up much room in the hallway closet when it's not being used and is very easy to keep clean.

                                          Remarkably sturdy given its light weight (compared to metal or wood steps). I weigh 255 lbs and am well over six feet and feel comfortable/stable on this. Easy to clean because it is all plastic -- if cleaning needed can wash with the garden hose. Nor worry about metal corrosion. Would prefer softer rubber feet to protect surfaces even better, but who's complaining? A good product at a good price.

                                              This is a wonderful stepstool. VERY sturdy unlike those small wooden ones. I never worry about falling when I use this. The rubber feet on it really hold it in place..it doesn't move at all. Seriously thinking about getting one for each of my grown children for Christmas. I even use it to clean out my lower cabinets in my kitchen..makes a great seat!

                                              We used these at work for manuvering heavy stock. When it came to getting a new footstool for my condo, I went on a search to find THIS ONE through half a dozen stores. It's easy to use, stands freely on its own, consistantly stable, and closes easily with the snap of a wrist. There is no other footstool that can stand up to it, as far as I am concerened.
