I owned these canisters for less than one year, during which time all three of them rusted quite badly on the outside, especially on the bottom, and ended up looking completely shoddy, in addition to my concern that the rusty rough surface would damage and stain my kitchen worktop, so I had to throw them out. In summary: poor quality materials and a complete waste of my time and money. I will never again buy any kind of metal kitchen storage from typhoon.
I am glad that I waited until now to submit a review, as if I had reviewed them in the first week following purchase my review would have been largely positive. It is only through prolonged usage that the flaws in my canisters materialised and the product in general doesn't seem constructed with the humid/steamy kitchen environment in mind.
