Q & As

Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by It would have been useful to have some dimensions Whilst this looks like a good quality product it's far too large for the space that I have available. I didn't notice any dimensions included in the product description. Had I seen them I would have not ordered this product which I am having to return. I would recommend making the dimensions more obvious in the product description. 30 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Quality control needs to be looked at We went through three of these before giving up on the product. First one had a scratched lid, second one was chipped inside, the lining ripped and poorly repaired, the last one had the upper section, where the tips of the knives are inserted, lying loose in the base of the cabinet. I spoke directly to Robert Welch who told me that they had had a faulty batch that had been made with inferior glue, which would explain why the cutlery is not secure. Under these circumstances, why have they not been taken off the shelf and thoroughly checked? All they are doing is damaging their own reputation, and that of John Lewis. Apart from this canteen, we have been impressed with their products, although our purchases have been gifts for other people! 19 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well for me This canteen was a wedding present and is thus rather special to us. More practically, it houses all our cutlery in a secure and logical manner. If you insert the tips of the knives into the top of the lid as instructed, they are very secure - I wonder whether the author of the one-star review made an error or had a faulty item? 02 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Product collapsed with only 8 place settings This is going back. I bought it yesterday and loaded it evenly as per the instructions, with only 8 settings (all never used). The knife section collapsed when I closed the lid and left all of the knives over the rest of the cutlery, causing scratches to some pieces. Not impressed. 09 May 2014
