Fun for a few Minutes!
I REALLY bought into the idea of this! I was so excited to find something new and unusual to give my son for Christmas! I was pumped and ready to video him opening the box--and I did. It took him under 2 minutes to get it open. The idea is great, but if you have a very handy man attack this, it won't take long to open. However, he was super stoked when he saw the insides and is very ready to get to the grill!

He loved it
The crate turned out great. I sent this to him for our anniversary and he loved every part of it. The only issue was it arrived 4 days earlier than I had chosen. No big deal though. He was surprised and didn't mind it being early one bit. I will definitely be purchasing more crates in the future.

Christmas for Dad
I purchased this for my Dad for Christmas. Shipping was right on time. The products were great & he really enjoyed everything the crate had to offer. My only complaint is he really had a hard time opening the crate with the crow bar. Since the crate was glued it was difficult to pry open and the top of the box actually was ruined by the time he opened it which bummed him out because he wanted to keep the crate. Other than that is was a great gift & I will use definitely use Man Crates in the future!

He loved it! I bought for him "just because" right before MY birthday so he was totally surprised. I'm still waiting on the burgers but he loved it and the crate it came in. I'll be buying more stuff from you all.

Wouldn't do this again
Not a fan of any of the seasonings. The fries seasoning was way too salty and had to just throw it away. Used the popper tray and I liked that but the jalapeno coring knife and I ended up using one I already had because it worked better. I like the baskets because it makes things fun. Burger press is just junk and is in the trash. Much easier to just do it all by hand. I would not recommend this to anyone. I really only like the popper tray, basket and basket liners and that was not worth what I paid. Disappointed in this.
Man Crates Response: Hi Bekah,
Sorry to hear you were dissapointed in your gift. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the popper tray and the baskets, and we're bummed to hear the rest missed the mark for you. We try to create custom blended seasonings that everyone's a fan of, and sometimes folks just like their seasoning a bit different. I'm also sorry to hear you didn't like the burger press, we've got one we use around HQ and we find it super helpful in making amazing stuffed burgers with perfectly shaped patties, it's true you can shape and stuff burgers by hand, but we've found this tool adds a bit of an edge for folks looking for stuffed, even burgers.
That being said we'd be happy to replace or refund any items you're dissatisfied with, give us a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll work with you to make things right, thanks.

Crate Was Fun~Contents...ehh.
The who novelty of the crate was a lot of fun and we immediately tried the burger stuffer. The burgers were absolutely huge, which I suppose is great for the men, but for the rest of the family, not so much. After cooking they were still huge and didn't fit in a normal size bun and it also made them take forever to cook. We cooked to proper temperature but they were still raw, by the time we got them cooked well enough everyone was finished with the rest of their meal and had been sitting around waiting. It's not something we'll be able to use often, it took 4 lbs of beef to make 6 stuffed burgers. Just wish it was smaller and produced a regular size so we could use it more. The seasonings were good but not anything amazing. Love the crate idea overall, but this wasn't the right contents for our family.

Great Gift but the Crate wasn't closed
I could have just bought the stuff and put it in a regular box. The main reason I bought it was because a coworker had expressed how fun it was to watch them try to open it. Well he just opened it. Just like any other box. Feel kind of gypped.
Man Crates Response: Hi there Rose,
I appreciate you writing in and letting us know about this so we can remedy the unfortunate situation. I'm so sorry to hear that your crate was not properly sealed. That is definitely not how we wanted your experience to unfold. We've tried to design the packaging to withstand the beating the boxes can receive in the shipping process but occasionally, even that doesn't work. We strive to protect against wind, rain, asteroids, plague and Chuck Norris but sometimes just good old gravity is enough to break apart the toughest of parts.
Give us a buzz at 866-902-7260 and we'd be happy to help make this right!

Kinda impractical. The burger thing makes HUGE 3/4 lb. burgers that are even larger due to stuffing. It doesn't really work for the size burger we make - 1/4 lb. Cute idea though.
