Great storage cabinet

These were on sale and I brought 6 of them. I lined all 6 of them up in my garage side-by side and they look great! Before I had tools, camping equipment, paint and household stuff everywhere. I had everything organized before, but it always seemed to look messy with everything laying out around the sides of the garage in baskets, on bookshelves and just stacked on top of one another. With these cabinets everything has a place and I labeled with cabinet on top with what was stored so things could be found easily. I was able to put these together in no time-no tools needed, it just snapped together. I don't know how long they will last but they are made out of thick plastic. The selves seem to be sturdy enough for what I need them for. I put my smaller hand tools, nails etc on the selves but I didn't trust them with cans of paint or power tools so I just put those on the very bottom. You put the selves where you need them. I have been telling everyone about these!!

Great solution for getting organized

I bought these cabinets to organize my garage and they are perfect. They are easy to assemble and attractive to boot. I like being able to shut the doors on the mess, and hopefully this will cut down on the dust and garage debris which accumulate on all the jars, cans and bottles. Makes me want to order some for the basement. I've only had these a week so I can't comment on whether they will warp in the heat under the weight of the contents. If they do, I will add to the review. The price of the 2-cabinet bundle is more than reasonable. Good quality. I am glad that I ordered them online and had them delivered as I'm not sure even one box would have fit in my car. Certainly more than one would NOT have fit so I would have had to make 4 trips. Shipping was more than reasonable at $2.97 for all four. I heartily recommend these cabinets.

Perfect for my carport storage

Great storage anywhere

I previously purchased two-(2 piece shorter version)of these storage units and liked them so well I purchased the taller (one peice) unit. They all serve their purpose well,however, I prefer the two smaller units-stacked on top of each other. For some reason they are more steady - the taller(one piece) feels tippy, but I love both of these and the quality is wonderful along with the assembly-I did it myself and didn't need my husband to help! Very roomy too!!! I also was impressed by the FAST EFFICIENT service I received-THANKS WALMART!

This unit exceeded my expectations!

We purchased this for our kitchen. This is an extremely easy unit to assemble; my husband did it in less than 15 minutes. It is very sturdy and spacious. It actually has 6 shelves, if you utilize the bottom shelf and the top of the unit. We stored bulkier items in those areas to have them secure and out of the way. I moved all the groceries and other items from a bookcase type system that was in the way and opened up floor space, with room to spare in the storage unit. It was $79.88 in-store, but it was in stock and I could take it home immediately. There were no assembly problems, and it was lightweight to move across the floor. This is the greatest piece of furniture I have ever purchased, but I knew going into it that Sterilite makes very good products, and in my opinion, sometimes puts Rubbermaid to shame!

Love it!

My kitchen pantry was getting too small so I needed something for the garage to use as a pantry! This shipped quickly and I received it quickly as well. Easy to put together with no tools at all. Not heavy to move at all! My husband even told me that we need to buy more of these to organize the garage! It holds much more than I thought! Worth the money!!

Great for kids room or playroom!

I was looking for an inexpensive storage unit that would work for my girls rooms since I don't have any closets. This worked great!! My 5 year old and myself put this together in no time, and now everything has a place. I plan on buying a couple more for the house. It looks very nice also.

Great storage

Organized my garage and bought two of these cabinets along with the Sterilite shelves and 4-drawer storage cabinet. Online notification was great - item came early. Store helped load into my car. The assembly was easy with the assistance of my son. Instructions were very good. The function of the cabinets is great for the price. I'm not worried about spills, bugs, or the weight i put on the shelves. I like that people cannot see my stuff when my garage is open. Wish I'd done the whole wall with these!


I put this item together myself and just took my time in doing so. A couple of the pieces at the end were mismarked but I was able to figure them out and completed the project. I am a senior citizen and if I can put this together anyone can lol. It looks very nice and I am using it for food stuffs. I highly recommend this unit for storage.

Love it!!!

I bought this unit in store after reading the reviews. I was sceptical about how much the shelving could hold since this is made out of plastic. BUT to my surprise this unit is very spacious and can hold a lot if weight on each shelf. This unit is VERY easy to assemble, spacious and sturdy. My only complaint is the cost it's a little pricey for especially since I need two or more to hold all of my stockpile items.

Sturdy and useful product

It's easy to put together also. It's made in such a way that I don't know if it's possible to put it together wrong. We're using it for toy storage and it holds a lot. We have the smaller Sterilite utility cabinet and have had it for about a year. We've had no problems whatsoever with it.


We purchased this as a temporary solution to a pantry problem in our kitchen. We liked it so much that we are purchasing another and keeping them as our pantries. I packed quite alot of stuff in it as you can see in the picture..

multiple uses

Bought this cabinet to use for storage of brooms/mop. It works awesome. I was able to use one shelf at the top and fit in 2 mop buckets, 2 brooms, 1 sm. broom, 1 mop and 1 bissell in the bottom. Definitly a great buy.

Great Cabinets, Smooth Setup, Great Price

Hard to find much wrong with these cabinets. They go together easily, are a fraction of the cost of the particle board style cabinets, look nice, are durable and work well.

Utility Cabinet

These are great. Good space, clean appearance and easy to put together. I bought one when I first moved in and now 7 years later bought the second. Great for my small basement to organize.

Turn Shelves Upside Down every Few Months

I purchased 4 of these cabinets when my house burned down a couple of years ago. I needed some storage cabinets for a small addition I built onto my shop while building a new house. If you use these for heavy items such as groceries, canned food, etc, they will eventually bow in the middle. I discovered that the shelves do reverse. So every few months when I see one of the shelves bowing, I take it out, turn it upside down, and place it back in. It works! The upside down shelf is actually kind of neat because the under side has dividers. Just try it, you'll see what I mean.

Terrible workmanship

I have some other Sterilite cabinets and these (01428501) are not even close to the same quality as the doors don't fit well so if moved or bump right, the doors will fall off! Then there is the cheap door latch at the rear of the door! Man!! Don't they test these things?? Might as well not have a latch, That's how good they work! No! I will not rec-amend these to anyone else! Just the opposite!

So disapointed

When the box arrived, I was thrilled. Had to wait a few days to put it together. Got the bottom half done and when connecting the top half to the bottom half, the pieces used to do this were not cut properly. When inserted into the predrilled holes, the entire cabinet split because the inserts were too large (not shaved down enough) to fit into the pre-drilled holes. At first I thought it was me, but I called Walmart & Sterlite, and was advised that this is a design flaw. I returned it and got my money back - - no questions asked. Walmart was very good about taking it right back. BTW, every time I order items from Walmart, UPS delivers them and the boxes are OPEN. Now, this site won't upload my comment because every "nickname" I choose has been conveniently taken by another customer. So ridiculous.
