The glass canisters look great on my counter. I love them. The fact that they are of good quality, heavy glass has just a couple of minor negatives associated with it. First of all, they are a little heavy when filled, especially for someone like myself who has oseoarthritis. Also, the lids are lined with a plastic liner, and if you pick them up by the lids the liner tends to slide out part way. I don't think they would come out all they way, but I am careful to put one hand under them as I pick them up, or slide across the counter to use. They are larger than I had anticipated - which is definitely better than being too small! No problem holding full bags of flour, sugar, and the medium sized one holds several boxes of pasta. I bought two sets so that I could put things like tea, pasta, rice, etc. in them to free up pantry space. The lids seal nicely, and I would certainly recommend them to anyone who wants canisters that will go with any color scheme!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Didn't do them justice - they are larger and heavier than appeared online
I like these canisters. They are heavy (not flimsy) in a good way, with secure screw-on lids. The colors are exactly as they appear on my moniter....clear glass with brushed nickel lids. They blend nicely with my stainless appliances, and I love the look of the ribbed glass. They are large..I can fit an entire 5 lb. bag of sugar in the medium canister. The one word of caution, and I believe this to be true of all canisters, is that you'll need to get narrow measuring cups to fit inside the jar. The inside dimension of the lid openings is about 3 1/2 inches. I'm very pleased with my purchase and like the way they look in my kitchen.

Have enjoyed these canisters on the counter and with the clear glass and clean lines, it will go with any design/color scheme. The square shape makes it a tight fit in the corner and the glass makes it easy to see when ingredients are getting low. Be aware that the opening is ~3.25" and my round 1 cup measuring scoop does not fit (my rectangular and oval scoops works fine). The large canister holds a 5 lb bag of flour, the medium size holds a 5 lb bag of sugar and the small holds two boxes of confectioners or brown sugar. Have stored ingredients for a month and lids seem to keep container airtight (eg. brown sugar is still soft). Easy to wipe down (wash by hand). I ordered a second set to hold pasta/rice/beans in the pantry, with one going to the master bath to hold bath salts. Works well in all cases.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Glass color matched exactly, lids look chrome online but are more of a brushed nickel
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Glass gauge feels heavy, ribbed glass helps with gripping the canister (they can be heavy when full). Nice to have screw-on lids (better than those flimsy clamps!). Lids have a heavy plastic ring that the metal lid slips over and is glued down. One of those lids slipped off the ring, solved problem by using a food-safe adhesive.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The measurements were close (heights were just under the measurements indicated and included the lid; lid adds ~1" to height).
I had a difficult time finding canisters that were not too small. These are nice large canisters with tight fitting lids. Measuring cups go easily in and out of the openings. They are made of heavy, quality glass with beautiful tight fitting lids. These canisters look great in my kitchen. They clean easily. I bake bread weekly and use these for my wheat, flour and sugar. It's great being able to go several weeks before needing to refill them. I like them so much I going to order another set for storing items I purchase in bulk and cookies. My daughter is painting her's in bright colors to match her kitchen. They are so versatile and look great anywhere. I love them

These are really nice and roomy, large storage canisters which could be used on top of the counter in kitchen, laundry room, etc., or used in the cupboards or pantry if not enough countertop ro!om. I had trouble finding larger canisters til I saw these. They are great!
I really love these. I store my dog food in the big one. They are well made and stylish enough to leave on the counter. My only complaint is that I have seen them at *** individually for a lower price. But aside from that, I love them.
Is the mouth of the canister wide enough that i can dip my measuring cups in? like the 1 cup size for example?mialeona on Mar 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
These canisters are very large. The largest canister holds a 5 lb. bag of flour with quite a bit of room left. The canisters were of good quality and packed very well. Happy shopping with our everyday low pricesoverstockcustomercare1 on Mar 6, 2013
The only cup that fits in the openings of all three canisters for me is 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, and 2/3 cup, all Rubbermaid measuring cups. The 1 cup and 3/4 do not fit through the openings.misslinp on Nov 23, 2013
