    Comments about SALAD PLANT:

    The item was a gift for my sister's new home. She had a touch of whimsical here and there and this fit in perfectly. It's adorable and she loved it! It's very sturdy and functional.

    Service and delivery comments:

    My purchase was lost in transit when UPS mislabeled the address when handing off to the post office. Uncommon goods sent me another in two days.

        As an add-on to another purchase, I bought the Salad Plant. It was unique, well-made, and all that I expected. I ordered two more for gifts.

        We have bought and given several of these as gifts and everyone seems to like it. No complaints except they wish it had more room/larger size.

          the salad plant is very clever and stylish. i will display it on my counter. it is a little taller than i expected. the "flower pot" is not round, it is oval -- that did not come across in the description. these are not real problems. i like the item very much.

            The idea behind this product is very creative. As a novelty item, it's great. As a functional item, it's not that great. The long "stems" are unwieldy and not easy to use. The materials seem a bit flimsy as well.

              I got this for my sister in her first apartment. She loves it. It looks so cute displayed on her counter but is also very functional. She eats a lot of salad so I know she'll get good use out of it!

              Comments about SALAD PLANT:

              I have ogled this for ages, but only recently was presented with an excuse to buy it as a gift for a friend. She loved it, I loved it -- it was a love fest all around. Now I'm still looking for an excuse to buy one for myself. Hard to justify when I have more than enough salad servers already.

                This is such a great product, I bought one as a gift for my sister. The tongs are creative, fun, functional, and exactly as they appear in the picture. Fabulous!
