Dry Food Vault
Fabulous ... wish it came in different sizes
I usd this for human food storage -- I buy bulk rice, flour & beans (I'm an artisanal tofu / miso / tempeh maker in my spare time#. Have had my first 2 vaults for >5 years and now have 2 more. Reassured by the NSF approval.
I can only repeat what everyone else has said: they're waterproof beyond belief, sturdy, airtight #BTW, to keep insects out of flour, I understand a few bay leaves up near the top work wonders as a repellant#. My only regret is that they don't come in smaller sizes -- I now buy my rice in 25-30 bags #I have Japanese brown, haiga [partially milled brown], brown basmati and jasmine) and don't need full size for each.
I just pick up a stainless steel scoop when I buy the vault and keep it inside the vault. Makes serving easy. Don't know what I'd do without these food vaults.

Good for people food too
We have purchased several of these vaults for the purpose of storing bulk "people food". For flours, sugars, grits, oatmeal, rice and other grains, even for storing boxed saltine crackers or cookies to keep them moisture and insect free.
Strong enough to even support shelving for other pantry items!
This is a piece of food storage equipment that cannot be overrated.
I have added the wheeled square canister unit available with one of your storage systems to add in mobility as I cannot lift 50# easily but I can now wheel the canisters almost anywhere!

Everything I hoped it would be and more
This was a great purchase. The vault keeps dog food fresh and the lid spins on and off easily. My pony-size dog stares at it trying to figure out how to get at the food, but without opposable thumbs, he is out of luck.

Best Bird Food Storage
The Dry Food Vault is the ONLY storage container I have used for bird seed and peanuts that does not allow infestation by pests. They're so dependable, I own three. If you like to feed the birds, run---do not walk---to Container Store and get a vault!
