Aldi Does Breakfast in Bed with the Crofton Bed Tray

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links.

“Breakfast in bed” is one of those concepts that conjures up images from, say, a lavish vacation. It’s the kind of thing you see in the movies, complete with true silverware, eggs, sausage, English muffins, and, most likely, coffee. Taking one’s meal in bed is the kind of thing that people associate with luxury, but it’s also a necessity for people who are of limited mobility.

Regardless of the reason, bed serving trays are a small but significant niche in the portable furniture space. Aldi is famous for diving head-first into this space, and in fact they have sold bed serving trays before, including an acacia tray. Now Aldi is selling a rattan-style model.

What We Know:

The Crofton Bed Tray (Product Code: 707514) is an Aldi Find. It’s only in stores for a limited time, and once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to get it again until it comes back, whenever that might be. Aldi doesn’t ship products online, so if you can’t find it in your local store, you’re out of luck.

At the time of this post, the bed tray costs $14.99. That’s a little less than the acacia tray Aldi sold and is less than most other bed trays I could find on Amazon.

According to Aldi, features include:

  • measures 21.8″ x 13.9″ x 3.8″
  • comes in dark blue or white
  • durable pinewood frame
  • folding legs for easy storage

I have mixed thoughts about the rattan style. It certainly looks cool and allows for some airflow, but I’d also be concerned about food — even crumbs — or beverages falling through the spaces in the rattan surface and onto the bed. Some people might like those tradeoffs more than others.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t tried this tray, so we don’t know what assembly (if any) is required, how stable and sturdy it is, or how long it lasts. We’ve created this open thread for users to share their experiences.

Have you tried out this tray? Let us know about it in the comments.
