I have been searching for canisters that would hold a 5lb bag of flour and sugar for years. Found these while just browsing, and decided to take a chance. They are just as advertised. I love these canisters. The largest one does hold 5 lbs of either flour or sugar. So, I bought a second set, and used the two largest ones for both flour and sugar, and the next two for corn meal and brown sugar, and put the two smallest ones on the drink counter for tea and sugar. They are gourgeous.
I have never found such a beautiful canister set as these. They are exactly as described by other reviewers and they are elegant and go well with any style of kitchen. I was delighted to discover they came with silicone seals in the lids, which adds to their ability to keep things fresh as well as secure the lids safely. I also bought the 4 mugs in this style and they are just like the canisters. The photo makes the canisters look like they are slightly pink/beige embossed but it actually looks more of a soft gray. Just Perfect for storing sugar, flour, or Costco size cocoa envelopes. No worries if you have other spoon holders or pasta holders in different whites because this blends wonderfully well with all shades of white. The finish has a soft patina, not a high gloss. Also, the packing is unbelievable! Thanks Overstock! Another customer favorite!

These 3 cannisters are huge. The detail on them are beautiful and weight of these cannisters are quite heavy. I have no complaints with this order. I use the biggest one for a whole box of 100 tea bags, the medium for sugar and the smaller one for splenda or equal. As another viewer stated it has the silicone rings around the lids for an airtight fit. Just make sure you have the room on your counter when ordering these. I had to do some re-arranging to fit these on the counter so they would look nice and not cramped. Very pretty and satisfied.

I had been looking for a canister set for a while now and just couldn't find what I wanted until I came across this set at Overstock. This set is not only beautiful to look at but very functional, as well. The generous sizes of the canisters make them very useful for flour, sugar, etc. -- they have larger capacities than nearly all of the sets I have seen. They have clear stoppers around the lids making them airtight and they are also weighty and well constructed. I had considered getting something with a pattern or a splash of color, but I am so glad that I went with this set. It is very elegant/classy looking and will look fabulous in my kitchen for many, many years to come.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was even better in person -- beautiful shade of ivory with gray/tan distressing.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate, but the photo does not do this product justice. Better in person!
I love this set, and intend to buy more pieces. The set is very elegant, well made, look expensive (although not) and go perfectly in my new kitchen. They would match any decor. The picture looked a bit "pinkish" on the design, but in person they aren't, which I'm happy about. Everyone notices them, compliments them and asks where I got them. I'd say that is a winner purchase!!! Love Overstock! Love your products and love your service!! Thank you!!

I love these canisters. I redecorated from a "country"kitchen to a more elegant look with granite counter tops and these canisters were just the look I was going for. They are functional as well as great looking. I am very pleased and intend to purchase a sugar bowl and Butter Bell in the same pattern.

These canisters truly hold the larger sizes of flour and sugar and a full can of coffee. I have dark colored counter tops, and they are beautiful in my kitchen. I would only be happier if there were four instead of three, but, I am very happy with this purchase.
My canisters are absolutely beautiful - I love them and they look great on my counter. The large one is very large - more than ample for a 5lb bag of flour. Other 2 are good sizes as well. Seal holds well. They arrived promptly - no problems. Would definitely recommend.
This canister set is PERFECT - style, sizes, color (exactly as shown), quality workmanship. I would recommend this set to anyone who is looking for a set that has a "classy" but not "over the top" design. I suppose refined would be the better term. I am thrilled I made this set the one I ordered.
The large canister holds a 5 lb bag of whatever you want to put in it. The lids have plastic moldings that keep the lid on securely and keep out moisture. The color is an off white with distressing. I just love the little handles on the lids. They come packed in a big box with lots of packing material. Perfect condition. You will love these canisters!
I couldn't decide if I should splurge on these canisters or not. I have used my old canisters for over a decade and I was just done with them. Bought a new house with gorgeous kitchen and these canisters are perfect. I think they are even more lovely than the photo on the website. I love the look, size and function. As other reviews have said they are large canisters so you will need a good amount of counter space. I love that they hold a full bag of flour and sugar. They also have rubber seals which are great too. One of mine arrived without a seal and they promptly sent me a replacement but also offered the option of a $5 credit, my choice. The customer service was excellent and friendly. The color is a true eggshell white and I have black granite counter tops and cherry cabinets so they really POP in the kitchen. If I had to pick what I love about them the most it is the LOOK. They are just so elegant! I love when something you need to be functional is beautiful too. I kept these on my Wish List for weeks but just couldn't resist. If you love the look and have the space...don't hesitate. This set is simply wonderful and high quality. Stylish, elegant and timeless.
