Complete tack. Doesn't fit together properly. Wobbles all the time. It's FAR too small to be of any use. Too low, not enough space on the dowel "arms", even if they decide not to drop off! The wood is probably worth less than 50p. The concept, if it on a much grander scale i.e. 6 times bigger and of a much higher quality, would be great. Alas, this isn't the case. The only way it is of any use (to me, at least) is to sprawl as many strands of pasta as possible across the whole of the top surface but even then, with the pasta hanging down over each side, you have to cut the strands short enough so as not to touch the work-top. Also, I find it impossible to fit more than one (modest) portion of pasta on this contraption at any one time. In a word : useless. I gave it one star purely because the parts that don't drop off can easily be pulled off and used to kindle a BBQ. I now use a piece of string hanging between two cupboards. I can now dry at least 8 portions at a time, for 1p!!! Don't make the mistake I did... It looks pretty good on the screen but, in my opinion, that's where it should stay.
