Brown Twill Round Plate Storage Cases
Really very good -- only two caveats
As others have said, these are extremely good storage containers for dishes. I'm very glad I bought them, replacing old ones that were not as sturdy or protective.
But as others have said, the dividers that come with them are not great -- all one size, and too large for the smaller items. I strongly suggest buying the Hagerty fine china separators instead (http://www.containerstore.com/shop/kitchen/dinnerwareServingStorage?productId=10026198).
Also, it would be great if the Container Store would sell the four sizes separately (even if only online) -- I need one more of the smallest size, but am not about to buy the whole second set just for that...

Way better than boxes
I bought these to fit Christmas China. The original boxes were falling apart and taking up a lot of room. These fit nicely in the bottom of the cabinet and are sturdy. This set allowed me to store 12 dinner plates, 12 lunch plates, 12 soup bowls, and 12 saucers. The only drawback is the separators. They are the size of the saucers and do not work for the big dinner plates. I would recommend purchasing plate separators. Also., the lack of handles on the sides makes it inconvenient to carry (especially the dinner plates).

Nana's China Cases
My mother passed down my Nana's china to me recently. Since I've been storing the dishes, unprotected, on the top of my kitchen cabinets since October, they were pretty greasy and dusty by spring. These cases are perfect to hold and protect all my "new" dishes! After the package arrived and I saw how lovely the boxes are, I decided that they needed to go on display on my bookshelves rather than on top of the kitchen cabinets - they're just too nice to hide away.

I love these storage cases. They are very sturdy. I am using them to store my good china until I get a china cabinet. They even came with plate dividers. I used them for Dinner plates, Salad plates, Bread plates and my saucers. I can't wait to get the matching stemware cases.
