I was hesitant to order this for my wedding with the other negative reviews, but we needed something 14" and there wasn't a lot out there to choose from so I took my chances. Ours came in perfect condition, no "glue" or "stuck to" issues at all. It's gorgeous and we will use it regularly as a serving tray. I'm very happy I took the chance. Great purchase and great value.
The order was received within 2 days of ordering. Apparently there are costs to such speedy service. The plate has hot glue dripped all along the underside from where the base and plate are attached. Then, this unsightly glue wasn't even set before it was packaged because now I have Styrofoam permanently glued to the edge of my plate and visible! Ridiculous!
