Default Rolling Carts

Which is the better buy? Both are ~$30.00. Which is sturdier?
Michael’s 3 tiered metal cart or Ikea’s Raskog utility cart?

Raskog is sturdier, metal gauge seems heavier, dimensions just a bit different. That’s not to say Michael’s isn’t decent. There are side-by-side comparisons on YouTube - I’ll see if I can find a couple but you can just search on “Raskog michaels” there.

I have Raskogs and when Michael’s brought theirs out looked at it and thought it was a bit lesser quality (like the mesh) - and also wondered about trademarks - it’s so close.

Here’s one:

Can the top basket be turned upside down to become a shelf? Would it be sturdy enough to hold a Big Shot?

Yes for the Raskog - people do that. I’m not sure i’d trust the Michaels over a long period since the mesh is a lighter gauge but maybe someone has done it.

I inverted the top shelf of the Raskog and put my big shot on top. Works great and I use my big shot soooo much more then I did before (when it sat on the floor).

I have the Ikea one and love it. Very sturdy and have it chock full of things. I didn't think I'd like the wheels at first, but I love that I can move it around my room as needed. Plus, I got mine out of the Ikea Clearance center. Someone bought it, put it together and for whatever reason, didn't like it and returned it. I got it for (I think) 20% off the retail price AND I didn't have to put it together! Whoo Hoo!
