Magnetic See & Store Container
The lid isn't designed to come off.
The lid isn't designed to come off. It is meant to twist to align the hole on the lid and a hole on the container to then shake or pour out the contents. I wanted and am using it for paper clip but don't like this function. Also, bought two so could use the other for small binder clips but won't use it because I literally can't take the lid off.
They need to better describe this item! I will probably exchange them in store. However, the appearance is great looking. That's the positive.
I gave it three stars because it doesn't work for me, but if that's what you want hen it's a great product.

These little magnetic holders are great for office items in my home office. I would have rated them 5 stars like most all my products from Container Store, BUT some of the tops are very, very hard to remove / twist off. Also, I had to remove some heavier things, like metal binder clips, metal paper clips, etc., as they tend to slide down magnetic strip a little bit. Other than that, they are great. I saw these being used on one of the cable TV organizing shows called "Neat" and I was impressed. Leave it to the Container Store to have them!

There are holes on the sides for sifting spices and one for pouring.

Great for Spice Mixes
I bought these containers for DIY spice rubs as a gift for my boyfriend. They were perfect. The lid turns to open a little dispenser that you can set to sprinkle out spices or dispense more. I just glued on some homemade labels and they were perfect. They are also magnetic if you would like to use them for something like paper clips instead. And since they are magnetic they also stack on top of one another and stay well.
