Found! Step stool ladder to reach high cabinets

Posted by kksmama (My Page) on

I've bought 2 now, was happy with the first from Home Depot but am thrilled with the 2nd from Costco (found in the store, yesterday). It is a Rubbermaid 3 step aluminum super light weight (<7lbs) and it was around $26! I'll be able to reach an extra 29" up, and actually use my high cabinets without dragging a ladder from the garage. This folds to about 3.5" thick, 42" high and <20" wide and mine will stand up between the washer and dryer...but I think it would be handy in a long toe kick drawer.

Just a word of warning for those hoping to put it in a toe-tick drawer - at 3.5" thick and 42" high (long in the drawer), the drawer is unlikely to be deep or long enough for this to fit.

I got one of those too and love it. I keep it between my big sink in the sunroom and the metal pantry cab. it is so easy to get out and use and so stable ! I love it. c

I put a hook inside a broom closet/pantry just around the corner from the kitchen, and I hang my light foldable step stool in there.

RE: Found! Step stool ladder to reach high cabinets

I'm waiting to see if I need a step stool in my new kitchen. The old kitchen didn't have high uppers, and I just hauled a dining room chair into the kitchen to reach. But in the new kitchen, I'll have a lot more storage up high.

Cabinets don't go in for another 2 weeks, though, so I don't know yet how it will shake out. If I do need/want a stool, I expect to put it under the sink.
