Top is nice polished stainless steel, but second shelf is not polished and is more difficult to clean.
I bought this item for use in my class room it is awesome. I raised the bottom level to prevent kids from resting feet plus at a higher level they can place backpacks.
We purchased it approximately 1 month ago, would definitely buy again. Love it!
If I were running a commercial kitchen (with rough handling) I would likely look for a sturdier model. But for my needs (I am the only person using it) it was perfect... I couldn't expect more for the price. Assembly was a little difficult, (binding on the shelf-leg-sleeves when trying to slide shelf into place), but a rubber mallet helps (rubber to avoid denting the table). There was some confusion with my original on-line order, and final details had to be handled over the phone... I got a little grumpy with the FSW representative... which she handled very professionally and gracefully. The mix-up ended-up being my fault (not FSW)... and my apology was received kindly. Thank-you FSW!
Very happy with this purchase. Good price, fast shipping and great service.
