We put these through the paces regularly. Own about 8 of these and take them on-site for catering. We have bought them over a few months so I am not sure how old the problematic ones are. We have 3 that have issues currently. Over the past couple months, we have had the rivet fall out of the hinge on one, hinges come loose on another, and problems with the sides bowing on the last one. The sides bowing out is most problematic as the little compartments fall through. Hinges seem like the biggest weakness on these -- I am anticipating problems with the rest over time. I'll try to repair them but am not sure if it will be possible. Catering is tough on equipment mostly due to the transport of things back and forth. Perhaps sitting on a bar they will be just fine. I think I will try a different brand and see if we have better luck. They are cheap so I don't feel like I got burned on them.
I ordered and received this tea chest within 5 days! I am pleased with the shipping time and the quality of the item. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it arrived with a slit through the packaging a and slit/scratch across the top front of the chest. I think it is still presentable enough to give to my neice as a gift, though.
Holds an edge, great feel in the hand, honestly amazing for the price.
Well insulated and large capacity. Easy clean up also
I bought this about a month ago, they are perfect for our bowling alley restaurant!
