Let's face it-- no one needs to have a wine glass/app plate holder in one. But the cool factor of these trays was too good to pass up for the price/value. When I entertain everyone always hovers around the kitchen so these glass/app plates are perfect since there is not a lot of room for people to place their glasses. Plus, as someone with hand arthritis, it can be uncomfortable/difficult for me to grasp a glass in one hand and hold something else in the other hand. Love these!
