I purchased this item for a gift. I practically got a splinter while taking the set out of the box to check it out! The edges were jagged, the handle was chipped and the actual board felt like sand paper. I'm definitely returning this item!
I purchased this item for an elderly couple for Christmas. They play card games that require multiple decks and they love the convenience of this machine. Their guests also appreciate the gift as one person has arthritis and the other hand tremors which make it impossible to shuffle the cards. Now, they don't have to ask anyone else to shuffle for them and everyone is very happy to move the game along more quickly.
