A great space saving bench.
I needed a bench for the kiddos to use especially in winter with boots. This is a nice well made bench. Sturdy, compact and looks great. Even my husband uses it. You can only put smaller sized shoes not tall boots on the bottom though.
Was a great bench, heavy duty wood construction
Was a great bench, heavy duty wood construction. Easy to put together. fits perfect in my entry. The seat is nice and soft and I love the material
Attractive and convenient, but needed a repair out of box
Perfect size and we really needed an attractive looking portable/foldable desk. Arrived with bent hardware so not sturdy as a desk - easily fixable by replacing the bent brackets, but I would expect it should arrive in perfect condition.

I love this desk. Haven't added my computer. But it seems to hold a bit of weight. It's pressed board, but it is a great space saver and I am super pleased.
EDIT: I added my computer and monitor and It does hold a good amount of weight, I do my homework on it and it seems to hold my head when I get exhausted LOL. the benefits of this desk are: being able to put it as high or low as you want. but that can also be a downside because you will need to take it off the wall if you want to adjust it. Still a great buy and after a year I am still super pleased with this desk

really good and pretty desk!
it's not complicated or difficult to assemble. I assemble it basically on my own.
It takes me about an hour or so, with a little help from my roommate.
The pieces are very heavy though. Definitely need some one to help you move up, if you are not living on the first floor.
The desk is great once put together
The desk is great once put together. I wish they gave you more glue. Once I put mine together, I can tell that it is fairly sturdy. The back panels don't line up flush with the other, which I'm not exactly happy about. One of the screw fasteners broke during installation due to too much force. Product didn't come with spare parts. Product also had some minor damage about the size of a quarter. It was complicated to install, but once you get the screw fasteners attached to the thicker wood pieces, it holds together easier. Instructions aren't very detailed, and aren't step by step. It's more of "here are 6 steps. Do these, move to the next page of 6 more steps"

Works great! Packed for 5 people, thick and heavy snow coats, snow gloves, base layers, snow hats, etc. into the 2 jumbo sized bags and it fit both bags compactly into one suitcase. It was simple and easy to vacuum out the air in just a few minutes (less than 5), and none of the air leaked out. Very pleased with the purchase. Also the package arrived on time.
Very Sturdy, highly recommend
I am moving across the country (CA to NY) and I decided to use these bags to have more space.. it was a great idea! I used all 6 bags and fit MOST of my clothes in an XL dufflebag and a check in size luggage with these bags. I would recommend these bags if you have clothing/pillow/sleeping bags/blankets to store or ship. Very sturdy and highly recommended, just don't try to over stuff them :)
One of the best inventions for storage. They hold a lot of items and shrink down to barely nothing. An entire comforter set that is very thick along with 3 decorative pillows and still had room for a couple throw rugs. Stack must of been 24 in high and shrunk to about 5-6 inches. (Jumbo bag).

These work great. I got them for both my kids so I can put their laundry in it for them to put away. Love not having an extra laundry basket sitting around cause you collapse them and place them under the bed.
Love the space savings
Like 'em. A bit stiff and small compared to our other basket, but they seem like they will hold up better than our smaller ones and the space savings when you store them is worth the size decrease. Just get another. :-)
The folding mechanism is good but takes patience to engage
The folding mechanism is good but takes patience to engage. However, it's worthwhile and everyone who sees this is jealous.
It's great for living in a house/apartment/dorm in which laundry is installed. However, use a sturdier basket with greater dimensions if you have to walk / ride your BNX bike / in-line skate/ skateboard / run / drive to another building to do laundry.

The Hercules of skillet racks........
I never write reviews but this product deserves it. I have a small cast iron collection and wanted a way to store it. I was weary if it would hold the weight and fit my 12" Lodge fryer skillet. It is quite deep. The fryer does fit on the bottom level but it is a snug fit. One I can live with, but just be aware it is is snug. As for weight, in the picture I have 12 skillets on it and I can remove the fryer (the one on the bottom) and not see any noticeable sagging. I would not hesitate to buy another one and may depending on how my wife wants to organize them.
If you are on the fence about buying this one, don't be it is a great product and handles the weight well.
Best Pot Rack. Simple Solution to kitchen organization.
My wife and I love this things even more than we though we would. MY LONGSTANDING frustration of disorganized pot is over! One really neat thing is that some of the pot lids actually fit in the pots and are storable as well. The versatility of this organizer is awesome because it can be used on a kitchen counter or in a cabinet (horizontal or vertically). Additionally, it comes with 2 screws and plastic wall anchors to secure it to a wall or cabinet board if you want to secure it against shifting.
If you are looking for a heavy duty Pan Organizer that is solid and reliable, this is it. Would highly recommend product and seller to others. Thanks for a great product.
Cast iron storage? Maybe...
Generally solid. I bought this to stack cast iron pans on, as I was tired of lifting a huge pile of them to get at the one on the bottom. The product page had some answered questions about whether this could hold-up under the weight of cast iron pans, and these seemed to indicate that yes, it could handle the weight.
I loaded my heaviest pans at the bottom and the smallest at the top, thinking this would limit how much strain was put on the rack. Even so, it tilts noticeable and makes me a little anxious that one day the pans will slide off, potentially damaging the kitchen floor.
Seems great for storing pans in a tight space, but I disagree with folks who find it works for their cast iron.
