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.
