      Comments about Root Storage Bin:

      I grow garlic and onions in my garden each year and have been wanting a 'root cellar' and this is perfect to store them in the basement. It was easy to assemble/disassemble and fits anywhere without taking up a lot of room. Will probably buy another for my potatoes.

        A gift to my husband who grows wonderful potatoes and onions. Its actually quite heavy, I never would have thought it'd be such great construction.

                cute storage but not mouse proof. I lined the inside with #8 hardware cloth, and now it's perfect! ready for early potatos from the garden!

                    easy to put together. Agree with previous review, spiral connectors will spiral all the down-into each other, if not fastened somehow. I used pipe cleaners in a "figure eight" fashion on bottom as well as at the half way point to create a stop.

                      Comments about Root Storage Bin:

                      I just completed the storage of my carrots in our recently purchased root storrage bin. It was a simple process if you follow the set up instructions. (One note however is to coil the two side spiral coils together making sure the start of the bottom spiral is at least two turns above the middle support bar. This will prevent the lower coil from spiraling to the bottom) I then purchased a 50 pound bag of washed & santized sand and a spritzer bottel for water then followed the instructions for layering. What an easy, clean and safe way to store your root vegetables. I was pleased to find that the handles were designed to handle the weight of the 50 pounds of sand and carrots. I then repeated the same process for our beets.
                      We couldn't be happier.

                          A bit too early to determine if this is a good product. Using it to store potatoes and beets. A review should be done next spring.
