Home is where the garlic is. This ceramic cottage with an opening bamboo roof is great for storing heads of garlic; the window openings provide just the right amount of air circulation to keep the cloves fresh and ready to add to your favorite recipe. It also makes a handy home for ginger root or shallots. Made in China.
Had been looking for a garlic holder and finally found one that was different from the others. Has a lot of storage too.
Love this garlic house! Perfect for cute countertop storage.
Personal tips; to prevent chipping and the banging sound when closing the "roof", I put a soft dot at the corner of the "roof" to give it some cushion.
Will look good in my new kitchen ,has more room than my old one.
I needed proper countertop storage for garlic
While I absolutely love the design of this item and feel it will be useful for its intended purpose, I was disappointed in the quality of the specific one I received. Upon opening it, a small sliver of bamboo fell off the right side of the lid. It's not really noticeable as it's on the underside of the lid, but it's still bothersome to me that a "new" item was damaged on arrival. (And it wasn't because of packaging; the packaging was excellent!) Along the same lines, and perhaps this is because I am just too OCD, but the screw on the right side of the bamboo hinged lid was not put in straight. This does not prevent the lid from opening and closing correctly, but it does make the whole lid skew just a tiny bit to the up and right...which drives me nuts. If this was an item in a store, I would have gone through the boxes finding the one that was screwed in correctly, etc. Through an online transaction, though, you're at the mercy of hopefully getting a good sample...and this one isn't. I won't return it - it would be more trouble than it's worth - but I wouldn't order an item made by this company online again. (That is to say the makers of this garlic house, not Uncommon Goods.)
Recipient loved it.
