Brushed Stainless Steel Canisters
Rusts very easily
Buyer beware - you will never be able to wash these or even rinse them without having to deal with rust. The canisters themselves may be stainless steel, but the closures are made of a very cheap metal and rust VERY easily.
We brought these home, rinsed them, towel dried them and then left them to air dry further before putting food in them. One day later and there is a ton of rust. I didn't even know rust could develop so quickly!

Good containers! I have many and use them to store the coffee that I buy in a five pound bag: coffee is always fresh! They are lightweight, easy to clean, and look good if left on the counter top.

Stainless steel that rusts and leaves water marks!
I just purchased the 48oz today and washed it when I got home. I left the canister open to air dry. There are water spots on the canister, which is not a big deal but there is RUST all along the metal that connects the lid to the canister. I would NOT RECOMMEND! Going back to store tomorrow to return.

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.
