Chrome Spinning Spice Rack
Rack is OK, but plan on buying different bottles.
The spinning rack is nice, and by itself it's 4 stars. However, the bottles that the rack comes with are nearly unusable. No matter what you do or how nicely you treat the bottles, a good portion of spice gets caught in the ridges of the bottle opening. Then you open it up and -- poof -- spice explosion. I've tested it: even if you keep the bottle upright and not in the rack, you'll still have a little spice explosion each time you open it up.
You need to put something large enough in it that it won't get caught in the lid. Fruit tisane works. Not much else does.
Keeping the little plastic insert for sprinkling spices helps alleviate this problem, but who wants to constantly have to pry one of those off each time they want to get 1/2 of teaspoon of something?

The rack and jars were exactly what I wanted, but the dimensions shown online are incorrect. Description says it's 8" diam x 10.25" tall, but it's actually 9x11.5". This was really annoying because the sizes are clearly stated on the box, and I needed something under 11" to fit in my cupboard.

Lovely Spice Rack
Although this spice rack did not need my personal needs (not enough bottles), it was very sturdy, sleek in design, and turned easily. It would look beautiful on any counter top, however I would have needed four of them to contain my 60 spices. Perfect for the new cook, or someone who uses only the most basic spices.

Love this spice rack!
The product itself is great, the rack spins easily and the labels are great to use and identify each spice. They also have blank labels for you to write your own spice in. All in all I really like it.
However, please be sure to check the boxes before purchasing. I had mine delivered and the 2 jars were broken (glass all over the insides, so be careful). You can ask the store clerk inside to see if the jars are intact. But beware of ordering the rack online, the jars are not insulated from one another (4 jars in one box), so they can be easily jossled and broken.
But I was able to exchange it in store for a new one, and it was done with ease. Thanks Container Store!

i am always looking for spice racks but most already have the spices in them. I love that you give you customers a choice. I love the Chrome Spinning Spice Rack, because it comes with pre-printed labels and have the shaker tops. But the best part is that they do not come pre-filled. This spice rack is the bomb

Well-designed, good quality
I really like the compactness of this rack and that it holds so many spices. Both the rack and the glass jars are sturdy and well-made. The pre-printed labels were also very helpful. I do wish the plastic discs that allow you to shake out your contents had a "pour" spout option similar to you get from grocery spice bottles. The holes on these shakers are TINY and spices like rosemary and thyme are impossible to shake out without peeling off the entire disc. This is a minor nitpick, however and I'm still very happy with my purchase.

This has transformed my kitchen to a professional look! I now have a beautiful, handy spice rack................we are not searching through piles of unorganized spice containers. Makes cooking a breeze!

great little spice rack
Love the spice rack. Very easy to find spices on my counter now. The jars are smaller than the average spice jar, so you have some left over to store somewhere. The labels are black type so on the darker spices it is hard to see the label.

I received the spice rack and have really enjoyed it!
It held all the major spices I use and is just the right size to fit in the middle of the table! I will recommend it to anyone in the future!

LOVE how they pour
When I got it to clear off some shelf room in my cupboard. Now that its in place and all the spices have been transferred I absolutely LOVE, LOVE this rack. I put the labels on the container rather than the top, makes it easier for me to tell what I'm running low on and the spices stay crisp and pour easily. Have gotten many compliments on the rack and stainless steel canisters. Everything just looks so neat.

No spin spinning spice rack
Spice rack only spins one way and not completely around.

Name a Spice Any Spice
I love this spice rack it is compact and takes up very little counter space. But even better it is not prelabled and I was able to fill and label the glass jars with the spices I use most frequently. It is very modern and looks clean on the countertop as well.
