I originally saw this rack at a kitchen store in Vermont. I loved the idea of storing 48 spices in such a small compact area. BUT, it was VERY PRICEY, so I passed it up. Then I found it on Overstock! I was so happy with my purchase that I bought a second one for a second home. The jars are the perfect size to hold a full jar from the grocery store.
This is exactly what is advertised; a carousel that holds 48 3.5 oz (I think) glass jars for spices. Very sturdy, surprisingly heavy even before putting the spices in. Comes with labels for the most common spices, and blank labels for filling out if less common. Also comes with caps with different sized holes, if you want to shake spices onto things instead of measuring.We especially wanted a spice carousel that did not come pre-filled.Looks great on our counter.Very happy with this purchase.
The only thing I would like to see improved is on the jars, it really needs an air tight seal. If you keep it close to the stove and cook with things that steam much, the jars seem to collect moisture and some spices will clump. I had to move it further from the stove, and that seems to be fine for the most part. Overall I'm very pleased with it, as it's one of the larger racks available, and holds all my spices. It is a tight fit under my cabinet's so you might want to measure before buying just to be sure it will fit if that's where you plan on putting it. =)
This is a high quality spice rack. It is very heavy, fits under the upper cabinets with an inch or two to spare. Have it fully loaded and it is perfectly balanced and spins smoothly and effortlessly. My d-i-l is coveting my new spice rack.....and the extra cupboard space provided by getting all the unorganized spices out of it! Wish there were an extra sheet of plain labels so I could make my own.

I have quite a few spices so I wanted to purchase a spice rack that would get all of the spices out of the cabinet. This makes locating what I'm looking for much easier. Smaller racks are fine if you don't cook often but this is the way to go for me. I saw this rack in a retail store but the price was top dollar. I saved about $80.00 with Overstock.com. The best price I could find.

Plenty of jars, eliminates needing to use 2 separate spice racks, saves space. looks nice in our kitchen, we have light wook cabinets and dark counter so this matches - would look nice in most kitchens though. This item has a STONG SMELL for about 2-3 days after unpacking. I could smell it while item was still unpacked. The smell is from the applied sealant/finish. Packaged VERY well, tight, and 'plastic wrapped' from top to bottom so the jars don't fall move or break. Smell goes away once this item is left out on the counter for a couple days, just crack a window, smell reminds me of a musk scent mixed with wood shavings like at a saw mill. Conclusion: good quality product, would purchase again. Yes, price is higher than other spice racks but there are many jars and it's built well, in USA. Suggest to wait for an e-mail coupon or sale to save some percent but still decent regular price (worth it) for this product from Overstock.com, better price than elsewhere and shipping was reasonably quick.

I love to cook, have many spices, and can't stand a messy cupboard. This spice rack made organization a breeze. I felt guilty spending that much money on this item, but it was worth every penny. It takes up a very small amount of counter space and keeps my spices at my fingertips. The perfect solution for my smallish kitchen.
