I set this spice organizer up...which was a pain! But once I got it set up I was excited about how it looked and how much easier it would be to locate my spices... weeeeeell my spices are still in their original location...except for the whole 3 of them that fit in the rack. The opening in each shelf is not wide enough to accomodate your average spice jar. I could only use this if I was able to find a brand of spices that are packaged in smaller than usual jars or if I found some jars that fit, purchased a bunch of them and then transferred my spices into them. I would not have wasted even the small amount of time it took to order this if I knew I wouldn't be able to use it without modifying several other things.
