Larger than advertised. Warps make it even wider still.
on January 22, 2016
Executive Summary: Nice materials used for a plastic product, poorly engineered layout, bad packaging that caused damage.
The product is made of a nice grade plastic and rubber inserts. That is one reason I wanted this. However, this product is wider than 12.75 inches by design when measured at the widest spot in areas not warped. It was poorly packaged and now wider still because the product is now warped. Won't fit in my drawer which I had carefully measured before ordering. Shipped with only bubble wrap on the bottom while the top had none. Shipping box was bulging at the top because the tray was packed in too small of box and the tray was squeezed. On top of that, looks to have been crushed or stepped on. There is much wasted room in the tray itself. Each silverware slot is way wider than it needs to be and longer. The salad fork slot is twice as wide as the fork itself and the same size as the large spoon slot. The forks and spoons tend to stack together (spooning) and the extra wide space causes problems with stacking. The butter knives, yes, give them wider space since they don't naturally stack. The butter knife slot is 5" longer than it needs to be. Again, a huge waste of space.
