Best Answer:It is not air tight. I only use is when I know I'm using the honey up fairly quickly. However, I've had honey in it for a week or two and it doesn't crystalize (that's with organic raw honey). I keep it in a kitchen cabinet, so maybe that helps - not exposed to temperature changes, etc. It seems to work fine. I do this with a lot of large quantity products, e.g. gallons of milk, half gallons of cream....I keep them in the fridge and use a smaller, sealed bottle so it doesn't spoil as it goes in and out of the cold. Honestly, for the price, I recommend this cute little honey pot. It's small enough that you will probably use the honey up quickly enough that it doesn't crystalize - just refill more often. I recommend it!
While this is not air tight it is very snug with the stick in and the top on. I didn't realize how small this is. Since there is only a small amount of honey in the pot if you use honey daily to flavor drinks etc you will use the honey before any danger of crystallizing. It is perfect to put out for a party and will hold enough honey to flavor a few drinks every week morning. If you are looking to store an entire jar of honey this is too small.
It's a snug enough fit that we have never had a problem with crystallization. We use about a teaspoon a day for tea, and the honey is still liquid by the time we make it to the bottom. I am happy with this purchase. I do use a spoon to scoop my honey and keep the stick in mostly for looks. I don't want to get it wet and then leave it in the honey to grow mold.
