PACKAGING ISSUE- I didn't heed the warning from the first reviewer and went ahead and purchased this rack with 17 spices. Upon arriving, I checked each and every tin. Sure enough, out of the 17 tins, 5 lids were stuck like glue. Using a butter knife, I carefully pried each lid open over a sheet of parchment paper to save any spices that flew out (and a lot did). Interestingly most of the stuck tins contained powdered spices (Cayenne pepper, turmeric, ancho, cinnamon) Hope D&D can resolve this issue. Minus this frustrating issue, makes a great self-gift, house warming gift or wedding present.
