I bought the first one just before Xmas... While not the sturdiest of "forever-lasting" material, I don't anticipate that these will 'break' or shatter any time, soon. I've found that most products today are only about as good as the manner in which they are treated. The racks are VERY light (lightweight materials) which makes them ideal for installing up under the cupboard, to save counter space. Installation took all of about a minute and a half, and operates beautifully (BEAUTIFULLY!). The rotation is exceptionally smooth, and the individual holders are designed in such a way as to make removal and replacement of the selected spice very simple, and not at all cumbersome. We loved ours so much that we went back and purchased a second. To anyone that knows how to take care of their useful items and is willing to take the day or so getting used to something a little different, I HIGHLY recommend this little gem. If you are the type of person that requires immediate gratification with next to no effort on your part, don't bother. You will only end up writing a negative review to cover your own feelings of inadequacy and mask your ineptitude...<br /><br />I've read a great deal of complaints that the spices "clump" in these. I hate to say it, but that will happen in ANY container (even air-tight containers) if they are left to sit for any length of time. I've had both onion and garlic granules turn to "bricks," living in Central Texas. Thirty seconds in the Bullet took care of that, and sealing some rice grains in a teabag within the container can alleviate some of that, as well. Moisture will enter ANY container, once it's opened, and making sure that the container is snapped closed (completely) can insure a longer life. If your spices sit in ANY container long enough to clump, perhaps consider removing it from long-term storage in smaller amounts. People should top expecting inanimate objects to remove the slightest of inconveniences from all of our lives.<br /><br />Overall, this is one of the best convenience-oriented purchases we have found, for our kitchen.
