We all know that Ikea has been a leader in the world of furniture for years, but there is one all-American company (Seattle-based, indeed) that competes like a champion with some nice pieces you could find from time to time in their stores or its website. Regarding Ikea, have you ever seen their stock of utility carts? They’re versatile and stylish for several uses in the home, in spaces like the kitchen, the laundry room and even bedrooms.
While Ikea has long been synonymous with quality utility carts, it’s interesting to note that a similar product has made waves elsewhere. Costco, a giant in the retail world, offers the TRINITY EcoStorage bamboo top kitchen cart, which has garnered a remarkable reputation. This cart, although not an Ikea design, has managed to earn a coveted five-star rating from consumers.
This utility cart from Costco is a 5-star rated furniture
The TRINITY EcoStorage bamboo top kitchen cart offers a competitive alternative to Ikea’s and other brands’ offerings. It comes equipped with a solid 24″ x 20″ x 1.5″ bamboo cutting board and two consumer-grade 22″ x 16″ shelves, all of them together can hold up to 500 lb.
The EcoStorage finish is an eco-friendly option if you’re looking for a conscious purchase for your house. It ensures that no harmful chemicals are released into the environment during manufacturing, staying true to the use of sustainable, renewable resources. Moreover, the shelves and basket of the TRINITY cart are also adjustable in 1-inch increments, allowing users to tailor the cart’s configuration to their specific needs.
This 5-star rated utility cart from Costco is discounted for a limited time
Costco customers have given it a 4.7-star rating out of five, a success for a product in this highly competitive category. “Nice product for the price. I rearranged the configuration for my application. Took the top wire tray that is illustrated to be installed under the cutting board and placed it at the bottom and move the bottom shelf to the middle. Also removed the handle and hanging hooks which in my case just took up too much room for the area I needed to store it”, a shopper said on Costco’s website, which you can extract from that it’s highly customizable.
“This kitchen cart is fabulous! It was exactly what I was looking for. The quality is above and beyond what I had anticipated. It’s completely useful and sturdy as heck, also looks good in the kitchen. I had a bit of a problem putting the little black caps on, and called the number given on the instructions. It was my bad, but I have to say the staff was fantastic at helping, product then went together under 15 minutes. I am very pleased with this product. It’s as tall as my kitchen counters, which is also a plus,” another customer stated along with a 5-star rating.
Finally, here’s another review we found interesting: “This is a GREAT addition for our kitchen. Our kitchen is small, with limited counter space and storage. This cart is very, very cute, and rolls nicely to use as a drain board or a cutting board. We store produce in collanders, and mixing bowl set and dog food canisters on the bottom shelf. WE LOVE IT!!!!”.
Usually, this utility cart has a price of $104.99, quite competitive compared to similar pieces from manufacturers like Ikea, but it currently has a discount of $25, for a final price of $79.99.
