Rated 1 out of 5Â by artsymom Not great
I was a bit disappointed. The lid is a bit difficult to close completely, and then opening it again is a challenge. I picked it up by the top one day, not realizing that the lid wasn't completely sealed, and the container tipped open and spilled flour.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer OK for looks, but bugs still got inside
I kept my shredded wheat biscuits in this. Moths somehow got inside and it ended up having a lot of larvae, etc. Don't buy if you want an airtight container.

A 5 lb bag of flour fits perfectly in the container. Easy to store and access your flour. Wish the top was a little more sturdier, have to be careful in opening or it may break. Otherwise I absolutely love it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tracey Great Flour Storage!
I was so excited when I got these containers in! I had been storing my flour in plastic bags in the fridge, and started buying repeats. I was thrilled to find reasonably priced flour storage... especially since I currently have 6 different kinds of flour plus sugar.
I had no problem what so ever fitting 5lb King Arthur bags of flour in these containers; slipped right in without a fight. I even used one to store sugar in, and again, no problem getting the bag right in. My only concern is that the hing doesn't seems all that strong, but that comes along with the price of $3.99.
Overall, I am thrilled!

This has kept my flour/sugar fresh and not messy! I always had problems with the rubberbands breaking, the clips tearing the packages - this is great!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tytoalba A great idea
Decanting flour into a canister is a pain -- flour flies everywhere and then, in order to get in as much flour as you can, you have to either slam the canister down to make the flour settle or wait for it to do so on its own. Then, you're stuck with about a cup or two of flour that wouldn't fit in the canister, so you have a rolled up bag in addition to a canister.
This product eliminates all of that hassle, making it so much easier to keep your flour fresh and free of pests.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by KayakKelly Nice idea. Cheap quality.
Nice idea to keep flour contained but the quality appeared to be cheap for a Container Store product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by nickname100 Great product
Keeps the bag nicely contained so that it is easy to move around and doesn't spill all over. It can sometimes be a little hard to open, but I guess that's a sign that it's sealed really well!

I needed to store a lot of bags of flour and they are the perfect size and tight seal needed to do the job. I love them.

Practical and functional flour storage. Will hold the entire bag and the bag itself.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by LadyJC Good pick if you don't open it often
It's great for my needs because I don't use flour very often. If I did, I would not have purchased it because it's very difficult to open.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Quasibear Works OK
I'm glad I bought them, actually purchased 2. Had I only bought 1 first time I'd not have bought second one. I use for flours that I don't use often like Rye and Oat. I was excited when other reviewer said to take the flour out of the bag & container worked without making a mess; however, when I tried to put a 5 pound bag into this container it JUST fit. Please note that I had already taken 2 cups of four out of the package first, before trying to put in container. I don't see how she got the entire 5 pounds of loose flour into the container & was able to scoop out a cup without making a mess. I have had to keep the opened package of four into the container & actually use the original flour packaging to keep the four from going all over - which is fine & my husband says that is the way it was designed. Plastic is not as thick as I would have wanted. Appears to be airtight, won't know for a while, but does look like it will be. If you've not bought these yet, I'd suggest the 11qt or 16.9qtr KEEP BOX that I also bought & am thrilled with. I've put all my loose AP flour into and the other I put 4 5 pound bags of different flours.

I actually poured my flour into these instead of putting the bag in them. So much easier to scoop the flour out and keeps it dry and fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by vedy1954 What took me so long!
No more flour on the shelf and I intend on buying two more because I use different varieties that I keep in the spare refrigerator during the warmer months. I love knowing that it is fresh and bug free.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by alexandrakay Very useful
I am so glad I bought this to keep flour. Before, I would try to stuff leftover flour (still in the bag) into ziploc bags, or loose in other containers. For the price, this container is so much better than those alternatives. You can just put the bag of flour in this container. It is simple and just so useful. We bake alot so I'm going to buy more for the other kinds of flour we have.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Renovator Simple but useful
Prevents those tiny leaks of powder everywhere. Also keeps the bag nice and rectangular for fitting in your drawer or shelf. Got one for sugar and one for flour. I think it would have uses outside the kitchen but I haven't got that far yet. Keep fertilizer dry? Perhaps something in the bathroom?

Please see my review of the Sugar Stay Fresh Container, since the same things that were stated there apply to this product, too. In short, for what it's designed to do and the price - you can't beat it.

I ordered FOUR of these, because I do a lot of baking. I ordered one each for my plain flour, self-rising flour, bread flour & sugar. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because they are a little hard to open but besides that; I absolutely love them!!! I would DEFINATELY recommend them!!!
