Rectangular SnapwareÂ® Containers
Snapware Made My Pantry Beauteous!
My husband tends to rip open cereal and cracker boxes like a raccoon getting into a garbage can. I hated that you can't close boxes snugly after he gets through tearing the tops, so I bought Snapware and outfitted my pantry. The lids snap closed nicely and they fit perfectly onto the narrow shelves of my flip out pantry. Now things will stay fresh and weevil-free, plus I can easily see when we're getting low on his favorites. Gotta keep the wild animal happy!

Snapware is the best thing for food saving
These containers create an airtight seal to keep your food fresh and bug-free. Very important. I used these on all my staples which come in bags which could be penetrated by bugs. I'm very pleased with the way the pantry.

WARNING ON SIZE!!!
I love these Snapware canisters. I had a couple at my last apartment and was looking forward to buying several more to have a complete matching set for all my baking flours and sugars at my new home. HOWEVER, I was very disappointed upon arriving home with my lovely new canisters only to find that they did not fit in my cabinets! My kitchen cabinets have fixed shelves a little over 8" apart. I usually find the Container Store's measurements to be quite accurate, however not so in this case. The medium size (11.1 cup/2.6 L) of these canisters is NOT 8" high as stated. They are actually between 8.25" & 8.5" in height once you account for the domed lids. Such a disappointment as 8" would have been a perfect fit! (just a small gap between canister and shelf to allow for easy movement -- but alas! I couldn't get them onto our shelves at all) :/ They are still great canisters though, so I'm just knocking one star off for inaccurate measurements in the item description because otherwise they would have been perfect. Ah well!

I have owned the Snapware Containers before. However, they have been in storage for over a decade while I recovered from a life-threatening operation. When I was able to get them out again from storage, I was pleased anew by their versatilty and ease of lifting. I had bought my original containers from a grocery store, which no linger carried them. I thought I would never find them again, or that they had been discontinued by the original company. This was last July 2013. When I got an e-mail from the Container Store, I thought I would just check. Imagine my joy when I found them again! Happiness! I ordered the sizes I needed, and they came very quickly with nice packaging! Thank you, the Container Store. What a wonderful relief! I felt that I had been able to bring back a small good portion of my life before this operation. This experience helped me to realize that there are still good things in store for my life. Thank you again, the Container Store! Wonderful!
