My original review is below. I'm changing it now because as days/months go by, the product is definitely not sturdy. The lid swivels (that's a nice feature), but the weight wasn't intelligently distributed. Therefore, the lid ended up getting dislocated from the main compartment. If I didn't want this to happen, I would have had to open the lid ever-so-slightly. I'm so disappointed and if I had known how poorly made this was, I wouldn't have bought it. Now I just pop off the entire lid completely if I need to use the salt. I don't even cook often so I cannot blame it on wear-and-tear. Oh well.

A beautiful product that serves its purpose. I don't cook too often, but I DO like to cook whenever there are ingredients in the fridge, so the medium size is just right. The larger size would be better off for cooks who whip up something everyday. I could have probably even gotten the small size. It looks nice on any counter-top.
The only thing that I would complain about is the swivel/hinge mechanism: it often comes loose where I have to press down on it several times to make it 'lock' in place. I wish this hinge was tighter bc I feel as if the whole lid could come right off. I don't even know how to tighten it.
