Near worthless - warped bottoms

I bought two of these 16 x 20 gray trays for use in platinum-palladium print processing. The bottoms of these trays are not flat, they are warped upwards in the center by 1/2 inch and it takes over two liters of liquid just to cover all the area of the bottom. Some of the chemicals I use are expensive and these trays will require twice as much as I normally use. I also bought three of the white ones: one has a flat bottom, one has a 1/8 inch bulge, and the other has a 1/4 bulge. They are usable, but the bottoms should all be flat. These two gray ones are junk in my opinion -- maybe okay for a drip pan when changing the oil in your auto.

Exactly What I was Looking for.

I searched the internet for a particular type of photo developing trays. I found quite a few outlets for that particular type and make of trays. However they ranged from old used trays to new ones, but the prices were ridiculous. Not only did B&H Photo have the particular brand and size I was looking for, but their's were brand new and more than half the price of the others I found on line. I would recommend B&H PHOTO to anyone looking for photo products. My trays came in a very timely manner. Thanks, B&H Photo GL

Big enough tray for print developments

Better get a tray too big than too small! 1 Gallon of fluid fills the bottom of this 16x20 tray sufficiently enough to be used in the development process. Issue is to fill the solution back out of the tray into the bottle. The plastic is not rigid enough to avoid bending it when lifting it together with the fluid inside - it can easily spill. But with some experience it works well without spilling fluid. I rinse mine with water after usage for the development stages. They can also be used simply as collection tray to store bottles filled with chemicals.

Great procduct- good price

I'm doing contact prints up to 13X19. Before I bought this I looked at other more general purpose containers that I could have re-purposed. For the price difference I decided to buy a tray made to do what I wanted to do, I'm glad I did. My only complaint is when it has a liter of liquid in it, it flexes which makes it tricky to handle when you pick it up to empty it. I solved this by stiffening it with strips of wood under the outside edges.

The Trays are nice and big. They are also very thick plastic and will last.

Can't beat this tray for the price.

Can Patterson make a flat bottom try?

By Ted

I am not talking about the ribs, I am talking about the actual overall bottom of these trays. Of the three 16x20 white trays I bought, only one has a flat bottom. Of the other two, one bulges upward 1/8 in the center and the other has 1/4 bulge in the center.These are still usable, but the bottoms should be flat, not warped. I just now gave a one star review for the two gray colored ones I bought which both have 1/2 bulges in their centers.

What is the depth of the 16 x 20 tray?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's 2.5 inches. That dimension should have been included in the item description.
