*** The Basket Lady Review***

I was PSYCHED when The awesome Basket Lady agreed to do a review with me. In fact, I was beyond psyched. I have grown a love for baskets over the last few years, especially the ones with liners. Actually, I plan to have PLENTY of them by the time my home is done. And why not? They are cute, they are handy, they are timeless... what's not to love?

The Basket Lady sent me a casserole basket and a set of round wicker serving baskets. My very first thought when opening them was, "Oh my gosh... these baskets are sturdy!" Let's look beyond the fact that they are in fact gorgeous, both in color and in style and look deeper than that.

They have this incredible lacquer coating on them that makes them super rugged. There was NO sagging in the casserole basket at all when I put the casserole dish in it or in the serving baskets when I put the fruit inside. Those baskets stayed very rigid.

And lets talk about size. The casserole basket fit my 9x13 Pyrex casserole dish perfectly! I was so impressed and just thrilled.  I guess I somehow had a sinking feeling that it would be just my luck that the basket wouldn't fit MY Pyrex dish. I'm tickled pink that it does though, because honestly, after the bad press about Pyrex dishes exploding, I am terrified to handle my casserole dish.  A basket with handles makes me feel so much better about doing it.

T set of serving baskets were much bigger than I imagined. I can actually fit stuff in them! That's 14 apples and 3 oranges in that big one. And in that small one, there are 17 drink mix pouches and there is room for more. The pumpkin one up there... 7 mini pumpkins, but I'm sure if I had had an eighth, it would have fit in the front there with no problem.

Now, I know you have noticed, but look at that finish!!! How beautiful is that? So deep and rich, I love it.  It is very classy and will go well with a LOT of kitchens and dining rooms.

What about clean-up you ask? Well, that's what's so great about the coating... all you do is rinse it off under the water or with your spray hose and dry it with a towel.

So there really is only one question left. Where you do get them? You can get them right from The Basket Lady herself. There are baskets for just about everything, from laundry, to storage, to even fireplace logs! So please check her out, cause she's amazing and super sweet to work with.

Disclaimer: I received these products to review and was not paid for this review. My review is 100% my honest opinion.
