Good to have
By ms Havisham
The actual trays are 9x9 inches and half an inch deep. I like that you can store the trays inside a box. This is great for keeping pieces away from pets. I will say that there is hardly any space to get the trays out with the loose piece box in. I wish there was a bit more space to allow you to easily lift the trays out. With that aside, I love that it also comes with the loose piece box. The extra glue and spreader should be enough for two 1000 piece puzzles, at least that's how many I can glue with the 4oz bottle of glue it comes with. The spreader it comes with is also nice. It was like a flexible spatula. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wish it was made of a sturdier material. I think overall if you're gentle with it, it should last you long enough.
- comes with glue and spreader accessory
- trays and spare piece box fit inside their own storage box
- somewhat difficult to pull the trays out (trays and spare piece box are tightly fit in)
- material of the product is not sturdy (hard/laminated cardboard)

Wonderful Sorting Trays - Can't say enough ...
I Love this - We bought 3 of these for the total of 12 trays. They are great for sorting out a specific feature of the puzzle, colors, shapes of the pieces. Put completed features into a tray and set it aside until there is a place to add it to the puzzle.
Depending upon the size of the puzzle pieces, we can fit 80 pieces into a single tray, provided we organize them tightly together.
These are also great when working on a puzzle with another person. You can take turns going through each of the trays and put them into a "Discard" stack when completed. Stacking? Yes - these trays are 1/2" deep and perfectly square, if you turn the tray 45 degrees, they stack nicely. These save space on the table, you don't have to put all the pieces on the table making it difficult to build the puzzle, keep them in the tray until needed. Can't remember if you already tried that piece? Have an empty tray as your "discard", once you have tested a piece, put it into the discard tray.
The cardboard is thick, and if you hold it only on one corner - it stays stiff and level. The tray box is great when the grand kids come to visit. Put all the trays back in the boxes, close the Velcro and put the box up on a shelf. When the kids leave, you don't have to resort all your pieces. The trays stack tightly in the box - preventing pieces from escaping from the trays.

perfect sorter-would and plan to buy again
By Amazon Customer
Love this sorter. My daughter and I do a lot of puzzles. This is perfect for us. It easily does a 1000 piece puzzle at 1500 it gets a bit difficult but then we just add back in the puzzle box. We are doing a 3000 piece now and could use another one.
The best part is it self contained between puzzle time. So my 2yr old can't get into he pieces and l mess up the sort. This is the only one I found that is self-contained. Also this is just a cardboard material, but it is coated so that reinforces it. So I have no worries if it being flimsy.
