Rated 5 out of 5Â by ClarissaMusic I LOVE these containers!
They are gorgeous. The seals are very strong. I especially love them with the magnetic labels and chalk pen! Fabulous idea.
You do have to play around with sizing, especially if you have a bit of spacial / dimension issues, like I do. To completely get the right containers for me use, it has taken a couple orders, which is fine.
I'm using these for things like flour, sugar, etc. They're great for those ingredients you prefer to keep in a dark place. However, be aware that the top is clear, so it's not completely dark. Therefore for items such as baking powder and corn starch that sincerely need to be totally dark, I'm literally dropping the manufacturers can down into the container.
Back to sizing....as an example, the standard sized corn starch container is 12 oz. That drops into a 24 oz. stainless steel container perfectly. 16 oz ( 1 lb) brown sugar / confectioners sugar, will pour nicely into a 34 oz stainless steel container. Sugar and flour, depending on the size you get, would need 48 oz. or even 62 oz.
I love these with labels because they are in view on exposed pantry shelving and it really gives that nice French kitchen kind of look.
My only con is that The Container Store is in NO hurry to ship. Be prepared to wait 2 - 3 weeks has been my experience.

I use this for my coffee and it stays much fresher and its much easier to scoop from than the bag which inevitably rips.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kimis Alright, limited uses
We use these to store coffee - 1 # fits perfect in the 5" x 7 1/4".
They last for years (note: we don't wash ours except rinsing out the inside) BUT they do not have replacement seals for the lid, so once that seal goes bad you have to throw away the whole thing - so wasteful and ridiculous.

I love these canisters! Before my kitchen was always getting covered in spilled flour or sugar as I pulled them out of my pantry (which was overly cluttered). Now I have my high use items on my counter making them not only easy to get but also keeping my kitchen and pantry clean. They stay looking new (no rust) and keep the contents fresh. I also LOVE how the freshen up the look of my kitchen (I feel like I am on a cooking show). These are a great buy if you are in your kitchen a lot and want it to be convenient, functional and cute!
