Avoid this thing - whatever chemical paint they use on it is absolutely noxious
on 25 July 2014
The basket looks of reasonable quality, the white is rather stark/bright, but it's acceptable. But the problem is the smell! They have painted it with some toxic crap... I kept it outside for the first few days, hoping for the smell to dissipate, and actually I had planned to return it, but then it got slightly rained on and so I figured I might not be able to return it.
Some purchasers must have been luckier than I was... it looks like they have outsourced their spray-painting to some el-cheapo outfit, and two weeks later, despite several days outdoors, and then keeping it in a WELL ventilated room, it still smells strongly of noxious paint fumes. Not ordinary paint, mind you, that I could handle. This is some toxic crap, I highly doubt it conforms to European regulations. If the smell doesn't clear in another week or so, I am going to put it out on the pavement for someone to take away. Shameful.
