It was great until I put all of the dishes in. Then it was too heavy March 10, 2010
Buy a box Two of us with multiple degrees could not put this together. And even if we had, it's pretty flimsy. Buy a box, bubble paper, and put something like a papertowel between the plates instead of this. March 2, 2012
Dish Drum I have used these drums many times before, but this time the dinner plates I was planning to store did not fit. These were Franciscan Malibu plates and now I have to find something else. March 24, 2013
Even the store didn't have it folded correctly! I strongly agree that the box needs instructions printed on the box or enclosed with it. Took me quite a while to figure it out, and it wasn't something I wanted to spend time on while packing up an entire home. That said, I used it to hold my favorite and hard to find china pattern. It held 8 dinner plates and 8 salad plates plus 5 small coffee cups. However, when I was finished I found I had used the box upside down! And, no, I didn't redo it. I had to return to the store after I bought it and looked at how they folded it and they had it all wrong too! March 12, 2014
