I wanted a hamper than would last and look good. I love the design hamper, but was disappointed when it was delivered with damage to the bottom of the front panel. Evidently, during shipping, it was damaged and the panel was cracked loose from the horizontal bars. I considered sending it back, but due to time I repaired the hamper and assembled it. This is why I rated the hamper a fair, due to the possibly of damage during shipping.
Great hamper to replace an old plastic one of about the same size. The wicker seems to be of a good quality as does the rest of this Made In The USA unit. The bottom is of exposed MDF, so if you are in the habit of dropping wet things into your hamper this isn't the one for you, or you'll want to get a piece of corrugated plastic or similar cut to fit to protect the base. It also won't hurt to put a few furniture pad feet on the bottom in need case the floor under it gets wet. The only down side: it is a little top heavy, not an issue for us, but just something to be aware of. But for the two of us, it's a nice hamper and I will be honest, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it really is. Love the color, the classic look, and that it is American made. What more could we want?
