Whether you're six or 60 years old, it's a frustrating feeling when an ingredient or appliance is just out of reach. But there's no need to risk injury by heaving yourself up on the counter or standing on a wobbly kitchen chair. Instead, Amazon shoppers have found a small-but-mighty stool that's conveniently foldable for easy storage and costs just $13.

The Greenco Super Strong Foldable Step Stool has nearly 1,500 perfect ratings, with many users calling it "sturdy" and a "life-saver" for reaching tall kitchen shelves or deep cabinets. It's distinguished by its 11 inch height—two inches taller than most single-step stools—and can hold up to 300 pounds. What's more, its 11-inch wide platform features textured rubber dots to prevent slipping, and its four fold-out legs have nonskid support, too.

"I'm 5 feet, 4 inches tall and with this stool I'm 6 feet, 3 inches tall," one user wrote. "I can reach everything in the tall cupboards in my kitchen!!"

A second added, "This is the handiest step stool I've seen. Collapses to a thin size that tucks into the small openings where you need it, but still large enough that I feel secure when I use it."

When folded, the Greenco stool is just under 2 inches wide, so it'll easily fit in a closet, between appliances, or under the kitchen sink. And toting it around the house is a breeze, too. Along with a built-in handle, the 2.4-pound stool is light enough for even young children to pick up. 

One mother called it "perfect" for her 3-year-old and 6-year-old, while another said: "It is very nice that folding them up is just a matter of picking them up by the handle, so it's a one-handed operation."

Priced at just $13, the Greenco Super Strong Foldable Step Stool is an affordable investment for any household. So, skip the struggle to reach the top shelf and add it to your Amazon cart now.
