I bought two of these, I was going to Ikea just before I read the post, much nicer than what I was going to buy in plastic for less money. AWESOME!

Edit: I believe it's this one: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/cert ... p.html#srp

I usually pick up a few when they go on sale. You can never have too many shelves... especially for 20 bucks.
I have the $20 CT one as well. I think it holds 375 lbs in TOTAL weight. So each shelf is rated about 75lbs which should be good enough for most purposes. Tricky part is having the weight evenly distributed across otherwise the middle sags.

I did the same! Although when I was browsing Ikea, the HYLLIS series seems to be on sale. Still different, can't even come close to the same load, but if anyone is searching for something really cheap and in different sizes they might be worth checking out. I saw some tutorials on how people are stacking these.

Picture shows it's about 50% taller than the counter.

But specs say 30 inches height. That makes the kitchen counter only 20 inches tall...!

Another Amazon fail.
For others' reference, the counter in this pic is 36" tall, so the unit in the OP is 6 inches shorter.

It's a shoe rack.

Told everyone it was tiny, someone wrote back "it's not tiny!"...it's 59 CM for goodness sakes, smaller than two 30 CM rulers from the office LOL.

1st one I bought came today. Like it a lot so I ordered another one along with the 4-tier shelf one too. It fits perfectly into my space. I stood and sat on it as I put it together (although I probably wouldn't recommend doing that..) and it feels very sturdy. I wonder if the people who are complaining about quality are putting it together correctly... You have to slip the black clips into the holes in the shelves

I have one that I got last year. I'm happy with it. It has adjustable feet. It is easy to assemble. It comes home for free. These are my favourite kind of shelves.

Question for those who have bought it, what is the diameter of the legs? I'm wondering if I can use some couplings to stack two.
