I live in an apartment building and frequently find myself lugging heavy loads of laundry all the way downstairs to the laundry room, I decided to buy one of those laundry sorters at target. However, to my dismay, it was made of a cheap plastic, and my excitement was soon gone by the fact that it broke in less than 5 minutes from the weight of the laundry, which wasn't that much at all! I quickly returned it and searched online to find this Seville product. I read all the reviews on it and figured it had to be great because it was made out of metal and screwed together as opposed to most other plastic ones on the market. I have been happily using it for the past few months, and from the looks of it for a very long time (I hope!). It's a great product and everyone that sees me in the laundry room is so impressed with it that they want to know where I got it to buy one for themselves. I recommend this product to anyone that wants a great quality item for a great price.
