Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RISERS TOO HIGH I loved this ladder two years ago when I purchased it, but now with arthritis I cannot step up to the 2nd step as it is too high. The risers on this ladder are about 11.5" apart. 9-10" might work better for me. Otherwise, it is the lightest and sturdiest step ladder I have ever owned. The raised handle is perfect to grip if you step up higher, as well as the top platform roomy enough for your tools. If you are still nimble, I recommend it. Now I need to find something with less space between each step. February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best one I've used Love the light weight. Stable platform and easy to store. I put two brackets on the wall and it can fit behind the door in the laundry room. February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I really LOVE this step stool!!! It may seem strange to say about something so utilitarian, but this one of the best purchases I've made in a long time! Everything about this step stool is perfect - very sturdy and strong, smooth operation, very flat when closed, non-slip feet, and just-right size for most uses. Best of all, I'm still kind of baffled at how lightweight it is, especially considering how well made and durable it feels. If Rubbermaid keeps making high-quality products like this, they will keep my business for life. Keep up the good work! September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome ladder I bought this 3-step ladder because it fit easily in my kitchen and was lightweight, but seemed strong. It is perfect for my needs and I'll be purchasing a few more for other rooms in my house. The grip on top is nice to hold on to when I'm climbing up to the top or carrying it between rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very light weight and sturdy Love this! Very light weight, but feels sturdy. And, goes up to 225 lbs! :-) It's so easy to whip it out of the hall closet quickly, open, and use. Gets you a little bit higher up than most step "stools". High-back handle is great and makes you feel secure. Nice large platform area to lay stuff on. April 16, 2013
