Can You Recommend a High Chair?

Though it feels like I just took the babies home from the hospital yesterday, they actually started on rice cereal last week. I was really nervous about having to feed two at once (it was hard enough with just bottles - adding food and bowls and utensils to the mix seemed downright impossible), but it hasn't been that bad so far. The only problem is that I don't really have anywhere to feed them. I had planned on using their bouncy seats for a while because I was in no hurry to add two highchairs to what has basically become a baby product showroom of an apartment. But the babies weigh so much, they lay too flat in the seats now for eating.
I really disliked the highchair we used for my oldest son. We had bought a Svan chair, since we had a small apartment and figured it would blend in with the rest of the furniture. But the wood ended up snapping apart when we first put it together, the tray was never big enough and always on an angle, and it was a nightmare to clean - food always getting stuck inside all of the gaps. Considering that poor decision, I'm not sure where I should start looking again for chairs. I would prefer not to get two full-sized high chairs if at all possible, but I do want something sturdy and easy to clean. We also need to find portable chairs for visits to their grandparents'.
What are your favorite highchairs? Does anyone have any recommendations for seats or chairs I could use to feed the babies?
