These canisters are perfect for my needs, as the smaller size works in the space I use them, and flour & sugar is kept elsewhere, so don't mind that 5 lb. bags are not accommodated. I store items I'd usually have in containers on the counter for easy access, and these are stylish and low profile enough to accent my counters and backsplash, rather than standing out. The only negative is that a couple of the glass lids have a sort of rainbow haze at the edges, despite attempts to clear it. It is only noticeable close-up, so doesn't take away from the overall appearance. The lids are airtight and well-constructed. I am very pleased with this choice!
I was looking for a simple, metallic canister set that wasn't expensive. This set is exactly what I needed to update my old, ceramic set. Very simple, and I like the glass top as well as the fact that there are no labels on the canisters. ....I don't always put sugar in the sugar jar. This set is lightweight and a good value for the price. Just as pictured and described. Thanks Overstock, you always save me money!
