The grille was not damaged in shipping, however, I agree with Anita, the corners do need more cushioning. The grille itself, is exactly what was shown and described (my husband who installed the grille was pleased with the ease of trimming the grille to fit the cabinet inset). For the price it is a good deal.
My grille arrived damaged. Fortunately my cabinet maker was able to salvage, as the length was a little more than we needed. You folks need to cushion the corners better for shipment.
