Comments about Product: I was concerned by some bad reviews which, after setting up the chest, I don't understand. It has hydraulic hinges which keep the top lid from accidently falling on your hands. Easy to assemble. In winter I will cover this as outdoor items don't survive Chicago winters without protection. It is very handy to keep all my furniture covers in as well as miscellaneous items
Comments about Product: I use this on a second story deck for storing cushions and other items during high winds and rain. I really appreciate that it is so well ventilated. However, it's just as pictured in the catalogue. The lid doesn't close all the way. The enclosed directions show the lid closed when completed, but it doesn't. So to use it for our purposes, we simply removed the "safety" hinges.
Comments about Product: The package arrived with the styrofoam packaging in pieces, which went everywhere as we unpackaged. But what was really terrible was that styrofoam had melted to every piece of the unit. I tried to clean it, but the wood is jagged and it was impossible to clean without getting splinters. Since the styrofoam isn't visible and we'd waited 10 days for this (which was purchased after searching for some time) we decided to keep it. Assembly is fast, except the hinges for the lid, which don't line up property. Not sure if it's because the hinges aren't on, but the lid doesn't shut securely. And we didn't realize the bottom wasn't solid, so I'm not clear how this is intended for outdoor use. A much cheaper product than it looks, but it fills a need.
Comments about Product: Just one negative, and that was part of the assembly instructions. It isn't clear how the arms that hold up the lid should be attached. The rest of the instructions were excellent.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
