InstaBasket is a black shopping basket with green piping and straps that'll unfold quickly when you need it, and fold up just as quickly when you're not using it. It's ideal for groceries, but you'll also be able to use it to carry laundry, road trip supplies, and household items that won't fit easily into a standard plastic bag. The basket is made of durable, rip-resistant fabric, so it'll hold heavy items such as multiple jugs of milk without breaking.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of InstaBasket is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $25.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at; however, the company has since ceased selling InstaBasket and has taken down the website. InstaBasket may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Open up

    To open up your basket so you can use it to carry things, all you'll need to do is hold onto it with two hands ( one on each end ) and flick your wrists. This motion will allow the basket to open up wide.

  2. Fill With Items

    Next, fill your basket with whatever items you choose. Each basket has a strap on each side, so if yours becomes heavy and you're not alone, you may want to make carrying it a two-person job.

  3. Close up

    To collapse your basket after you're done using it, just push down gently on each end and it'll fold up flat. Then, you'll be able to store it almost anywhere until you need it again.

How It Works

Each InstaBasket can open as quickly as it does due to an inner spring inside, which is activated when you hang onto your closed basket and flick your wrists in order to open it. When you fold up your basket, the spring then returns to its original position.


  • Roomy

    The InstaBasket is roomy enough to hold more items than a standard paper or plastic grocery bag, but small enough to fit in a standard grocery cart. You may even be able to comfortably fit two of these baskets in your cart, side by side.

  • Durable Construction

    Along with its rip-stop fabric, this basket also has reinforced stitching, so it's less likely to rip than an ordinary fabric shopping bag, and far less likely to rip than a plastic bag. Therefore, yours may last you for years without needing to be replaced, even if you use it on a daily or weekly basis.

  • Sits Securely

    The InstaBasket will sit securely in your shopping cart, in the trunk of your car, or virtually anywhere else without falling over, due to its wide base and rigid frame. Hence, when you use one or more of these instead of standard grocery bags, you won't need to worry about liquid ( or anything else! ) spilling all over the place.

  • Two Handles

    You'll be unlikely to drop your basket, regardless of what you're carrying, due to its two fairly wide handles that are sewn securely to the basket's sides.

Positive Points

  • Can Unload Groceries Faster

    When you use one or more Insta Baskets instead of other boxes, baskets, or bags, you'll be able to load your groceries at the store and unload them at home much more quickly than usual. You'll be able to transfer these baskets from your cart to your car, then from your car to your home, in just a few minutes or less. Since the baskets will hold so much in comparison to ordinary bags, you may be able to bring all your groceries into your home in one trip, instead of returning to your car multiple times.

  • Good for Road Trips

    If you're headed to the park for a picnic, to the beach or pool, or almost anywhere else, your InstaBaskets will help you carry the snacks, drinks, toys, and other items that you need. Unlike standard grocery bags, each basket is large and sturdy enough to carry a small case of water, juice or soda on an extra-hot day. You also won't need to worry about not having room for extra towels, sunscreen, bug spray, and other summer essentials.

  • Ideal for Laundry

    Those users who do laundry at a laundromat or in a shared area of an apartment building may want to plop all their clothes in these baskets as opposed to awkwardly carrying a plastic basket. Two of these fabric baskets should hold just as much clothing, if not more, than a standard-sized plastic basket can, and will be less likely to slip out of your hands.


  • Paper or Plastic Bags

    Many people choose to carry groceries in paper or plastic bags, but each bag won't hold a lot of food at once, in comparison to the InstaBasket. These types of bags also rip and / or spill easily, especially when filled with heavy products. From an environmental standpoint, using them creates a lot of unnecessary waste, too.

  • Boxes or Baskets

    As mentioned, standard baskets and boxes are often awkward to carry, mainly due to their small handles, and they'll take up more space in your vehicle than the same number of InstaBaskets will.

  • Other Fabric Bags

    There are tons of reusable fabric bags available these days, but they don't have the sturdy base that one of these folding baskets does, and most aren't much bigger than their paper or plastic counterparts.

I ordered InstaBasket on 1 / 21 / 2017. My card was charged $25.98 ( $19.98 for InstaBasket plus "bonus" InstaBasket and $5.99 for postage and handling ).

I have never received my order nor have I received any response from the several emails that I sent to [email protected]

I noticed shortly after I placed my order, the TV ads disappeared from my viewing Market - providence, ri area.

If you order from these people, they will take your money but you will not receive the product.

So often products are shown on websites and sometimes even TV, then when you order them online the item never arrives.

I've ordered things in the past where after I order the item the website goes down, I never receive the product and my credit card is never charged.

Why does this happen? These things are really cool. Sell them!

When As Seen on TV products are direct released they are trialed. This means all advertising is put forward for the purpose of seeing if there is a public interest. If they don't get enough orders to make it worth their while then they won't sell the item.

In fact, its not uncommon for them to not even product the item in mass quantities until there is enough interest demonstrated.

It make sense when you think about it. Why spend money on stock before you even know for sure if they will sell.
