I ordered my set after reading many reviews...some good, some not so good. After much searching for canisters I kept coming back to this set as what would look the best in my recently renovated kitchen.
Functional: Many folks complained about how hard the canister lids are to remove from their base...I have the opposite problem with the smallest, though the larger two are tight enough without presenting a challenge to open. My biggest wish is that the canisters had some sort of rubber seal, O-ring, or something similar to help keep air and the occasional pesky ant away from any stored product.
Visual: They truly are a decorative set of caniters to have, if one wants something that looks old world but not rustic and one can get past paying, on average, about 40% or more than what I would consider an average price for nice canisters.
Overall: If you like the look of the canisters in the photo and you aren't scared off by the price...and you have some arm strength for the possibility of tight lids, then you will not regret the purchase.

Great quality, nice finish and appearance. The size is terrific, larger then most canister sets, able to accomodate whole bags of flour and/or sugar. These canisters have a nice weight to them, they are not thin or cheap in appearance. Wonderful value, you won't be disappointed.
These canisters are just beautiful. They look lovely with my stainless appliances and black granite counter tops. All who see them make comments on their beauty. I only had a problem getting one lid handle screwed on. It's loose but doesn't take away from the look of the canisters. Very elegant looking!
I was looking for a set of canisters to go with my newly remodeled kitchen. I wanted something decorative, yet practical. After looking and looking for several weeks, I stumbled across this set. They arrived in a timely manner and I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box -- they were larger than I was expecting. But they are the perfect size! The lids do not have a rubber seal, but they do fit tightly onto the canisters. The pewter finish is a beautiful match to my stainless steel appliances and the canisters look gorgeous sitting on my new granite countertops. Another great purchase from Overstock.com!
I saw poor reviews for this set on other sites but most of the reviews on Overstock were very positive so I decided to go ahead and order it. One of the screws for attaching the knobs to the lid was not the right size, which was a comment I saw in multiple reviews so I don't think this is a rare exception. The largest lid had a slight scratch in it, and the fit on the canister was absurdly tight. I really had to fight with it to get it off, and could easily see if I had had flour in it that the flour would have won. This one I felt was definitely not worth the money. I'm disappointed to have to send it back, but over the long haul I know I would not be satisfied.
I was looking quite a while for a cannister set big enough to hold bags of sugar and flour, and these are perfect. The seal is tight (maybe a little TOO tight on the flour cannister), and I don't miss the fourth cannister at all--it's usually too small to hold anything anyway. They look just beautiful on the counter, and they are very functional as well. Good buy!
I initially was hesitant to order these stylish canisters due to the mixed reviews. I am soooo happy I ignored those reviews. These canisters look beautiful on my counter and coordinate beautifully with my stainless steel appliances. The size is just right and they have a good seal. In addition I ordered the matching piece to hold my utensils.

The exterior can be cleaned with stainless steel cleaner used for cleaning stainless appliances. The exterior shouldn''t tarnish if cleaned appropriately. Unfortunately, we do not carry a matching bread box.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 12, 2012
