Kitchen Storage Kit
Bought this to help keep china from breaking in move. Worked perfectly. Only draw back was due to the size of my plates I had extra room and wold have liked extra padded envelopes. Not that big of an issue as I made my own and was able to fit a few more dishes in so that all was securely not moving. Made packing china easy.

Easy to use; could be better individually
I just packed up some china using this. It seems to protect the plates very well. I did not pack it in a box of the designed size, but did use the cardboard to separate the different size plates just to add more stability between plates.
It comes with 6 small, 12 med, and 6 large sleeves. I could have used 12 small. Instead I have small side/bread plates in med sleeves with lots of room to spare.
The large fit the dinner places as well as a serving platter that was just slightly larger than the plates, but with 2 'handles'--it went into the sleeve diagonally.
Since I needed different sizes than provided in the set and really didn't need the cardboard, I would love to see these sold in separate sets (e.g., 6 small, 6 med, 6 large--so you an mix and match to suit your own needs).

a little misleading
The kit shown online is a little misleading. You actually get the dividers & the foam sleeves, but no box. The box is a separate purchase. If I had seen this in the store, it may have been a little clearer from the packaging, but this photo seems like it's a box plus inserts (it's not). In any case, the sleeves are nice. The inserts *do not fit* in a standard-sized "banker's box." I folded mine a little and made some adjustments and they worked, but this was not what I had expected.

Good value for the number of foam pouches included
The dividers are easy to put together and you can make a couple different configurations to accommodate your needs for different size dishes. It includes 24 foam envelopes/pouches in 3 different sizes (6 7-inch, 12 9-inch, and 6 12-inch). The real value for me was the number of foam pouches/envelopes included in the kit for only $9.99. If, instead, I had bought 2 packages of the 9-inch foam pouches/envelopes (6 qty each) and 1 package of the 12-inch pouches (6 qty), I would have paid over $13 and still have only 18 pouches. For basically $10, I got more pouches plus the dividers. Great value! Now my seasonal dishes are safely and neatly stored away until I need them again.
