These were VERY easy to assemble.

The shelves are rigid, and strong enough to hold lots of jars and cans of food.

This Sterilite 5-shelf utility storage unit is one of the finest consumer products I've seen in a long time. Being an industrial engineer, I'm not easily impressed. But I am impressed by the quality and low price (I paid $32 at Amazon with free shipping) of this unit.

Assembled, it has a nice look. The 150 pound limit per shelf is staggering considering it is made of plastic and marketed for non-industrial use. The color of the material is neutral and nice while the physical properties of the plastic are excellent. These combine hardness vs. softness for maximum static strength perfectly. (Some manufacturers make storage racks like this too brittle allowing for minimal deformation under load. However, this brittleness, inherent in the material, makes them easily broken.) Sterilite has balanced both to make a shelf hard enough to maintain form under load but soft enough to take dynamic stress without breaking.

Proper assembly takes about a half hour. There is one simple diagram on the rack banner that shows how it should be put together. No written description is given or needed as assembly is so simple, a child could do it. I do however have several suggestions for proper assembly listed below.

Starting with the bottom shelf on the floor, place four vertical posts into the four corner holes smaller side down as shown on the supplied diagram. You can try to push them in using your strength, but I used a hammer, a block of wood, and a sock placed between the wood and the top of the post to prevent damage to the post. Once placed into the top of the hole, just tap the post into place until it bottoms out. After all four posts are tapped down into position, measure the height of the posts from shelf-top to assure consistent insertion.

For less than $30 (at least as I'm writing this review) these things can't be beat. Everything snaps together and once assembled you have a sturdy, not entirely unattractive set of shelves.

One suggestion that makes these shelves even more stable is to put a couple of shims (like Nelson Wood Shims CSH8/56/120/MGD 8'' Bulk Contractor Shims) under the front legs so the it will tend to lean back against the wall.

BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews can take the place of first-hand experiences that are lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and work hard to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and if there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.

I bought 2 sets of these shelves for storage in my basement. They are very sturdy holding cleaning supplies etc. I read some reviews that the shelves were broken on arrival. I can see how this can happen because they arrive in a cardboard box without any padding/packing material. I was worried the cold would make the plastic brittle and easily break but was relieved that they were in great shape. These are better quality than some I have bought at local B&M stores.

Note -- this unit has **5** shelves.

I already had two of these. They're sturdy. They go together in a flash. They're strong. They're easily moved from one place to another. What's not to like, you ask? Unfortunately, there was a price increase that I learned about when I recently ordered more of them, a price increase of approximately 50% !! The nice person at Amazon customer service told me that the new price was non-negotiable.

Here is a suggestion: Take a look at the Sterilite **4-shelf** units, also available from Amazon. (Look carefully at the dimensions of each unit, however. The shelves are somewhat smaller and the height of each shelf is less.) You can buy THREE of these for less than the cost of TWO of the 5-shelf units. Check the dimensions of your storage needs and see if this alternative might be a better idea. You might also consider buying three 4-shelf units and combining the parts to construct two 5-shelf units. I think one 6-shelf unit might be constructed also, with the leftover parts (don't forget to check your ceiling height).

POSTSCRIPT #1 -- Since I wrote the above review, Amazon dropped the price about $5. This is slightly more than a 10% drop! Thank you, Amazon.
POSTSCRIPT #2 -- Check for missing parts **before** you unload the box! Here's how to do that: Put the shipping box upright. Open the top. Spread open the four flaps. Using a flashlight, look down, carefully **between the shelves.** Count the posts. For a five-shelf unit, you should count 16 posts! If you don't count 16 posts, don't open the box any further; you've got missing parts!
POSTSCRIPT #3 - I urgently needed a large number of these 5-shelf units to redesign the storage area in my basement. I finally got the number that I needed: **thirteen!

Takes less than 10 minutes to assemble. The packaging says 150 lbs per shelf. It is very sturdy, however this product lacks holes on the back to bracket the unit to the wall (earthquakes). The Sterilite 4 shelf unit has these holes.
