It's difficult to get the threads aligned properly to screw the top on. I try to cover it several times before the top is secure.

Great for storage and made in USA

Verified purchase

These storage canisters are great because they have wide lids and they are easy to pour into and out of. They can be used to store anything. I store my different bird seeds in them. I also prefer them over other similar products because they are made in the USA.

Big enough to hold the cereal. Closes tight to keep food fresh. It's ant season and they definitely can't get in there.

Happy

The set of 4 I received are perfect. They fit under upper kitchen cabinets or on shelving, BPA free for storing foods like dry beans, instant potato flakes, rice etc. They have a hand grip on 1 side too. I put little scoops inside to scoop out what I need.

I REALLY LIKED THESE.

Great storage container for dry goods. I haven't used for liquids. The squarish shape lends well to storage and utilizing space. These are not tough plastic container like a thick old fashioned Rubbermaid of the past. But they clean easily, and if you handle them with 'proper' care they should work great. Ill try to include pic below of the gallon size and the smaller ones. I like both. I prefer glass gallon jars, but not always PRACTICAL. These you can GRAB easily because of the side indents. :)

my affordable go to food storage canisters.

Verified purchase

These are affordable storage canisters, especially for winter stock ups. I live out in the cornfields of south central PA and we get mice every fall so storing food safely is imperative....found out the hard way...learned quickly.

Best container

Verified purchase

I absolutely love these containers. I own around 8-10 and keep ordering. They are easy to store, clean lines, make organising so easy and can fit 4-5 lbs of most items. I use them to store flour (each one can hold 5lbs), beans, lentils, snacks etc

Really Hold a lot of ingredients

Verified purchase

These are really nice and a pretty good deal at 4.95 but they use to be 2.95 which was better... The labels are a little to stuck on which makes it annoying to put on new labels with marked ingredients.. I just put the label on the back.

Simple and effective

Verified purchase

I almost got 20 pounds of flour into four of these (with some overflow into another cannister I already had in my kitchen). They seem a little on the thin side, just a little thicker than a container you might buy as a bulk package of cookies or candy. I don't yet know how long these will last, but I'm planning on using them for storage rather than day to day access. They seem uniformly made. The lids fit well. Hopefully they're just durable enough to get the job done. I should mention to be a little bit careful--mine had a couple tiny nubs near the threads at the top that were almost sharp. They definitely catch your attention when you run into one with a finger.

4. I do - I also sometimes put the product's original container, such as a bag of rice or "sleeve" of pancake mix into the jar (if it will fit).

5. That is my question too. Looking at the specs I see this is made by Rubbermaid so I'm thinking it is probably BPA free - but ad does not state if it is or not.

1. Yes I have had mine for over a year. Use them for any thing packaged that I have opened flour, nuts, raisins, rice, cereal, crackers, chocolate chips,pasta, etc.

2. SINCE THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT THEY ARE BPA RATED I WOULD NOT STORE YOUR PRODUCTS MORE THAN A COUPLE OF MONTHS. IF YOU WANT THEM FOR LONG TERM STORAGE, PURCHASE SOME MYLAR BAGS, AND OXYGEN PACKS, PUT THE MYLAR BAGS INT THE PLASTIC CONTAINERS, PUT YOUR PRODUCT IN THE BABGS, SEAL THEM AND CLOSE THE LID. KEEP SEALED UNTIL YOU NEED TO USE THE PRODUCT.

3. Dry foods stored in these canisters (in my kitchen cabinets which are always kept closed when not in use) keep at least as long as their shelf life dates (stamped on manufacturer's packages) and perhaps even a little longer - and I live in a very hot, humid climate.

4. You can store any dry food in these and they will stay airtight. I have been using them for years and they still look and act like brand new.

2. I've never put liquids in mine, only dry items but I suppose they could be used for liquids. I prefer keeping liquids, especially beverages, in glass containers whenever possible.

3. Yes. I've used mine for liquid laundry soap and never had an issue with storing it on its side. Be aware, however, that this plastic is harder than something like Tupperware, and it will break if dropped on a hard surface.
