This is a very cute picnic set, which I bought for my mom for Mother's Day. She and my dad could have used it to go on picnics near their home or on boat trips in their little skiff. I love that there is real dishware, glassware, and flatware, as well as salt shakers, a cheese board, cheese knife, and cork screw. Unfortunately, the design of the basket could be better. As other reviewers noted, the heft of the top due to the glassware and flatware storage is problematic. In our case, the lid of the basket broke reeds on the basket before we even received it. I think this is a flaw in the design. I don't think it can be remedied by getting an undamaged basket, as I would be afraid that the lid would break the basket whenever my parents would use it. Too bad, because it is very cute and would make a lovely picnic all laid out on the plaid blanket. I'll look for something more sturdy. I generally like Picnic Time products and have a picnic set/cooler from them that I use frequently.
I was looking for a medium size picnic basket to turn into a chopped junior basket for a budding chef in our family. This one turns out to be perfect. Good quality, fair price.
This basket was exactly what I wanted, however the packaging used for shipment left a lot to be desired. It arrived dented in 2 place, and the frame was bent in several places. It is still usable, but the dents don't do it any favors. Should have been shipped in a box, not a padded envelope.
