          I had been looking for something like this. It is good solid metal, feels like steel. Who every designed this must have a sink cabinet like mine. the garbage disposal hanging down on 1 side & the drain pipes on the other side. Everything ends up on the bottom of the cabinet & in the back. It is 10" wide, 16' deep & 7' high which fits in between wall & the water lines for the sink. The semi round basket is 6' wide. It hold almost everything I had hoped for. No more down on my knees to reach something in the back.
          Pros: Convenient, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Portable, Takes Less Space

          A new bench vice is one thing every bench needs. Take care of them & it will last for years. This one will go to one of the kids.
          Since I worked outside construction I had one mounted on various trucks over the years. The one thing was grease it often.& keep it dry. The screws are smooth & the handles are the right size.
          The Wen vice out of the box has no marks of any kind, the finish looks baked on & is smooth to the touch. The anvil does not have a mark on it just the way I expected. The jaws are held in place with 2 screws each so you can change them. I will make a pair of hard wood. The base is held down with
          3 lge bolts, you supply. The jaws open to 5" , it weights 17 lbs.

          The original bowl opening had to be made larger. It was ready to set in place that was when I discovered the corner was out of sq. That is a problem to be solved next.
          With a white top, the Grohe faucet set looks "right" I'm glad I did it.

          Finally, a dishwasher that gets it done right, the first time. LGs new QuadWash system uses Multi-Motion arms that work together for maximum cleaning coverage, while 3rd Rack provides a customization racking experience. LGs convenient front control design makes it easier than ever to preview and select the settings you want. All this paired with the reassurance of LGs 10-year Direct Drive Motor warranty.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I thought I wanted some thing different & color grey is not very appealing with food on them. The pieces are not glazed all way to the underside of the pieces & they state they are dishwasher safe The glaze is smooth so should clean easily. The bowls are oval, 8 1/4 by 6 7/8. A bout 1 1/4 " deep. The plates have rounded corners almost so much they tend to appear almost round instead of sq. The plates are 10 ins. across and kind of look small to me.
          This is the service I'll use on the patio in bright daylight.
          Cons: food looks "funny"
