Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated June 22, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

You have submitted illustrations depicting a Folding Basket, item number 57040, and a Multi-function Microwave Plate Tray, item number 56920.

Item number 57040 is a small household utility basket that collapses for storage. It is made of polypropylene and holds up to 8 pounds. The folding basket measures approximately 11 ¾ inches long by 8 inches wide by 6 1/8 inches high overall excluding the handles. It can be used as a tote to carry items such as household cleaning supplies from room to room or to carry or store items such as toys or garden tools.

Item number 56920 is described as a multi-function microwave plate tray. It forms a second level in the microwave so that two platefuls of food can be heated at the same time. When turned upside down, it functions as a plate lifter to protect hands from being burned while handling hot plates. It is vented to enable use as a plate cover/splatter guard. The legs fold down for storage purposes. This multi-function microwave plate tray measures approximately 9 ¼ inches in diameter by 3 3/8 inches high and is made of polypropylene plastic.
