Loop Glass Canister, Set of 3
Interesting Lid Seal
Finally got a set of these on-line, they have been out of stock forever, and scarce in the stores. I see they are out of stock again on line. Well, my small container has a hairline crack in it, but I'm not returning them due to the shipping costs, they are heavy. The FedEx box was damaged upon delivery, enough to where I took pictures. I guess the FRAGILE sticker on the box doesn't phase FedEx any. I don't believe the crack was due to how the items were wrapped, Kirkland's always does a great job protecting the products. I think it cracked when it was made, but I can't be sure. Poor quality control is my guess. Now it's my problem. The larger two canisters were fine, minus again, poor quality control. The thing that is bothersome, is the plastic over the lids to create the freshness seal. Seriously, I've never seen such chinzy manufacturing. The plastic doesn't form to the lid at the bottom, it is left sticking out, and it makes the lids pop off unless you get the lids on just right, tight and twist them just a bit. Crazy! They are cute canisters! I didn't find the smell in the plastic that I read was a problem in some of the other reviews, so maybe that issue has been corrected. When you wash the lids, the water does get under the plastic, so rather than risk a mold problem, I removed the plastic to dry the lids completely before first use, and they do go right back on because there is a groove that they snap onto. At first I wasn't sure if I could remove them. And removing them isn't what causes the lids to pop off the bottom section, because I haven't washed my other two canisters yet, and they pop off just the same. It's not something to return the set for, just poor and cheap design. Never seen such a thing. They are stylish for sure, and look awesome on my counter, and they are big! So be sure to measure first.

looks great on my cabinet
These actually hold quite a bit and they look great sitting out, They can go in a fancy kitchen because of the scroll work or go in a country kitchen like mine, because they are in a metal base. Love them, thinking of getting another set.

bad smell coming from lids
I ordered 2 sets of these canisters, which I LOVED~ however, there was a smell coming from the lids. a very strong chemical smell...... I tried washing them, & putting baking soda inside the plastic, but after a while, I noticed that the flour & sugar started taking on the smell also.... Very disappointed~! Don't buy unless that problem has been taken care of..........

You will love owning this product!
This set of 3 glass canister jars is the perfect addition for your home! It is perfect for keeping flour, sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, salt, or anything neat, clean, and fresh. Or use them as a cookie or candy jar! I spend most of my free time baking in the kitchen and these jars kept my flour, sugar, and brown sugar fresh and out of the bottom of my cupboards. Once the bags were open, they were always making a mess! Pouring them in the separate jars, made baking easier and more efficient. I recommend this product to anyone who does even minor, occasional baking. They're durable, easy to clean, and they're a kitchen's perfect accessory!
