Don't buy if you need it to be airtight
on 1 December 2011
This is the first time I feel pushed to write a review because this product is so bad. They look lovely and yes they are enamelled on the inside as well, but the larger of the two tins, the main reason I bought the set, is not in the least bit airtight. I even asked for a second set just in case I got the one that was defective. But second set came and once again not airtight. The lid just eases off without any force. If you hold it by the lid the bottom part falls off, that's how loose it is.
Because I hadn't returned the first set I even tried switcing the lids to see if that helped, but alas no.
So if you're happy to have a pretty tin and not keep food in it then, go ahead, but if you need it to do literally "what it says on the tin" (there is a sticker that states it's airtight), then don't!
