I had been looking for something to store my pasta and rice in that could also remain on the counter. I thought I had finally found something stylish and functional in this set. Once received, I just couldn't like it, and I tried. To start, the tops are cheap. When you tap them they sound like plastic, not stainless steel as advertised. There were also little scratches on them, not a good sign for it's long term use. The glass itself is very splotchy. There were air bubbles throughout it, and not in the purposeful way. The seam where the glass was joined is quite obvious as a thick vertical line down the canister. I really wanted to love this set since I had been looking for a while and these seemed like a great deal. But to keep them, I would have had to hide them away in my pantry and position that ugly seam to the wall. If, like some other reviewers, you're just storing crafts or keeping them in a closet then these may work for you. However, if you were looking for a canister set to display in your kitchen then I would keep looking. Luckily, overstock is great with returns.
This jar has a superb design going on right around the whole jar, top to bottom as well. It's lovely to look at and has added a new dimension to my bench.
These canisters are really cute.... but really small. I currently have clear, glass canisters with stainless steel tops. However, with granite counters, one has already been cracked. I liked that these were acrylic with stainless steel. They are very sleek-looking. But none of my supplies (sugar, flour, corn meal) will fit without having to refill them constantly.
These are a nice size but the lids are a little hard to screw on, not sure how airtight they are but they look very nice on my granite counter top and I like the see thru on the front.
