Shopping Basket by reisenthelÂ®
Useful and stylish
I have been using Reisenthel's market baskets for more than a decade and was always very happy with these. But when I came across this shopping basket with its cute retro houndstooth pattern I decided that it was time to change it up a bit.
Here are my comments, in no particular order:
- Very well made, as all Reisenthel products are.
- Love the mix of classic black & white houndstooth pattern, solid black and fun red accents.
- Useful inside zip pocket holds my car keys while I shop
- Very large capacity! I can literally fit all of my grocery shopping into this basket and still lift it because the basket itself is very lightweight. It definitely holds more than my old market basket.
- I am particularly fond of the large protective rubber feet at the bottom. Even when I have to sit my basket down somewhere in public, the basket itself does not come in contact with the floor/ground. That they sport a cheerful red doesn't hurt either.
- The only advantage that the market basket has over this one is that there are rain covers available for those. With this one, getting caught in the rain means the contents will get wet.
All in all I am very, very fond of this new shopping basket, and even though I have both the market and the shopping baskets in my car trunk, I find myself almost exclusively reaching for the shopping basket these days. It is more flexible and larger and at least for me easier to handle. Recommend 100%.

I love the reisenthelÂ® products!
I do a lot of 2-3 day traveling for my job and I have a lot of the reisenthelÂ® travel products. The one new thing I was looking for was an easy access carry on for under the seat. This has worked perfectly. And it matches my allrounders which is awesome.
The little shopping basket is well made and sturdy. I did spray it with some water repellant to protect it against spills. It is the perfect size for an under seat carry on.
I like it so much, I will probably buy another.
