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
Tough Storage for Dishes I have used this item in the past for dishes and carried them from house to house...Really packs securely and holds up to moves! September 13, 2013
Serves the purpose This serves the purpose it was intended for. It did take a moment to figure out the assembly. It would have been nice if that information was written on the side of the box. Also, the plates I put in this box, which were cheap holiday plates from the dollar store, barely fit. If I needed additional storage for dishes, not sure that I would purchase this again.

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
