I really like the style and size of these canisters. I was disappointed that the lids don't fit very tightly. The larger canisters have screw on lids but they are very light weight. The smaller "spice" jars have lids that don't seal airtight at all. The lid has a cover that "spins" to reveal either a larger opening or a 'shaker' type opening and it opens far too easily. I live in Florida and it's very humid. As a result, spices don't stay fresh too long in these containers.
I love glass cansiters so I can see what's in them. This is a nice set - including 4 spice jars - which is different from others I've seen. I think it makes a lovely wedding gift for kids who need to complete their kitchen. I would recommend them to anyone who loves the look of spaghetti, macaroni, beans, etc on their counters.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? There is no color - it's glass and stainless - but it looks just the same as in the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality seems good - it's for a wedding gift. I was a little disappointed about the lids - but there is nothing wrong with them - it's just the plain-ness.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was right on - it's just my perception. I do like the set
I like this item a lot and will probably buy another set as we use a lot of pasta and storing remaining pasta in the boxes they come in is less than ideal for a household with many children (can't tell you how many times I've swept nearly a whole box of penne or spaghetti off the kitchen floor). Of course they are glass, but I've already dropped one, and it did fine (although our floor is linoleum, nothing hard like tile). They are on the heavier side than what I expected and the glass has more of a ruddy look to it- its a lot like the stuff my friend has from Europe- they're not this pristine super clear glass that looks brand new. That having been said, I've actually grown to appreciate that about this set as it lends kind of an old-world feel to it. All my pieces arrived undamaged and the set was delivered in about two days. A note about the spice shakers- I'm using them because I really love the way they look. However, they're not made quite as well as the canisters and the metal tops for them are a bit on the cheap side. I'm using them for my lesser reached for spices because they're just not as quick to use as the plastic pop-tops. But overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

I use these for crafting. You can use them for anything that you want to view. They are heavy duty. I bought 5 sets of them, so I figured that at least one set would be broken to pieces. Only one jar in all the sets was cracked. I am pleased with the items.

I have been waiting on the canisters to get here so that I could organize my small pantry better. I ordered a couple sets to go along with my existing stainless steel ones. I received them within only a few days. I have them all labeled & filled with goodies now. My pantry looks like something out of Martha Stewart! The glass is thick & the lids close tightly. The variation in size fit a large variety of things. And I thought the price was great! I can not say enough about these. I really love them! After finishing my pantry, I was looking around to see if I had another space I could use them in so that I could order another set of them. I am still looking. Laundry room may be a possibility & I can definitely use more spice containers even if I don't need them in the laundry room!
I would definitely recommend these to a friend!
This is a nice set of storage containers. However, one of the jars that I use the most (for rice) is not airtight, the steel top separated from the plastic threaded ring that screws onto the jar. A little glue will solve that problem, but I have to check them regularly to see if the other jars are having the same problem. Takes away from the overall functionality of these very pretty jars. The spice shakers are unique and very useful.
This "Cook N Home 8-Piece Glass Canister Spice Jar Set" should not be considered air tight.
