I received the Graco Contempo high chair as a gift about 2 years ago. The chair does fold up to become pretty compact and I have traveled with it once before. It was small enough to fit in the back of my Honda CR-V along with a large suitcase, double stroller, and pack n play.
There is a dishwasher tray insert that is placed on top of the tray, but I have never been able to use it. It's so easy for a baby to pull the insert out that every time I've put the tray on the chair with the insert in my son has immediately pulled the insert up, which results in food all over the floor. Most of the seat cover is plastic, but part along the top is made of fabric. Because of the fabric, I can't clean the entire cover by wiping with a cloth and I have been putting it in the washing machine 1-2 times a month and letting it air dry. I recently noticed that the plastic covering is starting to get small holes all over, probably due to being washed in the machine. One other thing I don't like about the chair is that my son seems to get his arm stuck between the tray and the seat of the chair pretty frequently. It also seems to have lots of small cracks that get food stuck in them every time my son rubs his hands around.
Overall, it's a decent high chair, but it's a pain to keep clean. I really prefer the Fisher Price space saver high chair, which costs half as much.
