Solid, sturdy and beautiful
on 30 August 2011
I wanted a way to store my fruit that was not only practical but also looked great in my kitchen. This wire fruit basket fits that bill perfectly.
I was surprised at how sturdy it was. I had imagined for the price that it might be a bit flimsy or feel a bit cheap - not the case. It feels really good quality, it is heavier than you would expect from just looking at it and it does exactly what it is designed to do - hold fruit.
You can't fit a huge amount of fruit in it - not unless you only have small satsumas or limes, but it holds enough to last us a few days.
I like the fact that it is a mesh style as it means that air circulates around the fruit. I have previously stored fruit in a dish and found that if I don't eat it quickly enough it can start to rot where it contacts the base. This shouldn't happen with this basket.
Overall, I am pleased that I purchased this item.
