I bought these to go with the Sango brown mixing bowls, which I really like. The reviews on these canisters were very mixed, but I decided to take a chance, and it was worth it! The canisters are great for lots of different things; I use them for different types of whole bean coffee, as well as cookies. The lids take a little work to get them to fit right, but once I had one of them working, the rest were easy to figure out. The problem is that the seals get warped while sitting in the shipping carton, but they "unwarp" with just a little fiddling, and after that, they work quite well, although they are not water-tight. The largest of the canisters was broken when the set arrived (this was a common complaint in the reviews), but I e-mailed Overstock, and got a response the next day. A new canister was shipped and I got it in a week or less :-) The problem is that the cardboard separators are not as heavy as they should be, and the lids are stacked on top of the canisters, but this is not Overstock's fault. And they resolved things so quickly that I was not upset at all. I might buy more of these.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? THey are a little darker, which is fine with me ;-)
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very solid. Some minor issues with the lids, though.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Prettu good
