These baskets were designed to be used by gardeners to wash freshly harvested vegetables before taking them inside. You can gather your vegetables and then hose them off right in the same basket.
However, when our staff first saw the baskets, many wanted to use them for fruit instead, while others suggested adding a cloth liner for serving bread or other baked goods.
The small basket is 9" in diameter by 5 1/4" deep; the large is 16" long, 11" wide and 4" deep. Both are chrome-plated steel to resist rust.
