Flour Stay Fresh Container
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.

Nice idea. Cheap quality.
Nice idea to keep flour contained but the quality appeared to be cheap for a Container Store 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!

Perfect for the Purpose
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.

A 5lb. sack of flour was hard to get down in it. Really fits snug.

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

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.

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.

Great size, but hard to open.
keeps my flour fresher longer, but the lid gets stuck and then when it opens flour gets everywhere.

This keeps the flour fresh and fits nicely in the fridge!

Keeps flour dry and fresh
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.

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.

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.

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.

Tidy and fresh storage for flour
I love my flour container - it is a great solution for keeping messes down in the cabinets and counter spaces. It makes a great seal and keeps the bag of flour fresh. Great quality and so functional for the price.

Great way to keep flour & sugar
This container keeps the flour & sugar fresh and keeps it from spilling in the cupboard.

Great value for the price
Even my HUSBAND asked where I got such a cool container. Although it seems like the cover won't stay closed, it always does.

Flour Stay Fresh Container
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!!!
