by FarNorthGlendalefromPoor-quality item, not worth list priceI live 15 miles from the nearest REI, so it isn't worth a 30-mile round trip to me to return or exchange this item. I will keep it, but am disappointed with the poor quality of the product. It is definitely not worth the [$] list price. When I got it home and unpacked it, I found that one of the acrylic goblets had a broken base. Also when trying to fill the salt and pepper shakers found that the plastic insert in the bottom was stuck on so tightly that it could not be removed except with needle-nose pliers, or by prying it off with a knife blade, either of which damages the insert. The strap that holds down the little cutting board is too tight, and it feels like it is about to tear off when replacing the cutting board. I've purchased many items from REI; this is the first time I've had any complaint about the quality of the merchandise.
