FlipLock Glass Canisters by OXOÂ®
Purchased this FlipLock Glass canister by OXO as I was looking for a storage container for my parmesan and/or romano cheese. I was specifically looking for a glass shake top container but have been unsuccessful in finding this type of container. I decided to try this FlipLock Glass container. The glass is of good quality but the lid doesn't seem to lock as tight as it should. When picking the container up, make sure you pick it up by the glass and NOT the lid. The lid will lift off if you attempt to pick it up that way. I would have given the product 5 stars if the lid truly was airtight. I will continue to use this product as I prefer glass storage containers rather than plastic. I am guessing the lid doesn't lock down because the product was meant for countertop/pantry storage and not for the refrigerator.

Great find after a long search
After looking forever for something to store my vanilla beans, I finally found this container. It works great and it's tall enough so that my vanilla beans fit perfect. And it's vacuum packed so everything stays fresh all the time. I just love it.

Made the switch from plastic to glass, and love how these containers open and close so easily.

Grand Opening and products
Like the line from the movie, "you had me with hello". My first introduction to the Container Store was on a visit to my sister in Atlanta Ga. I was more than impressed with the overwhelming possibilities I could achieve with the products I might buy at the Container Store.
I am someone who loves the idea of being organized--in my home and office. So, upon my return home to Pa I began to look for another store. How disappointing the closest location was more than an hour away in New Jersey. That distance did not deter me however, from several visits of the past few years.
A few months ago, while on a visit to our local mall, my husband called to say "I have the biggest surprise for you!" After confirming he was not making dinner that night, he let me know that a Container Store was under construction at K of P.
We were at the door at 8:55 for the Grand Opening. No disappointments here. I focused on organizing under the cabinets in my bathroom. One challenge I have always had is how to protect my cosmetic brushes and keep them clean. Check out what I am doing with the flip glass container.
The Store is beautiful with more ideas and products than ever.
