The quality is good. The stand is great because it takes up little space. The smell is terrible - I mean really bad. I had to remove them from the house and take to the garage. I am hoping the smell goes away over time. If not, it will be a waste of money because my wife doesn't want that smell in our house.
I contacted the manufacturer and they replied promptly. I will try their recommendation. They said:
The products are treated to prevent rusting while in transit and while waiting in the warehouse. Though the odor is not harmful, it can be distracting. To minimize the odor, we recommend using a mild solution of dish soap and warm water to wipe them down or a solution that is two parts water to one part vinegar, then placing the products in a well ventilated area for at least 24 hours to air out.
