I reorganized most of my pantry dry goods (snacks, pasta, powders for baking) into these matching containers, a huge upgrade from the mismatched old containers I had. I used:
11 of the small 24 oz. Rectangle Canister with Turquoise Lid - exterior dimensions 5-3/8" long x 3-3/4" wide x 4" high - holds one 6.6oz bag of Goldfish Crackers, or one 9.25oz can of Planter's mixed nuts, or one 12.6oz bag of M&Ms, or one full box of baking soda, or one full box of cornstarch; also put my partially-used bag of cornmeal in one of these.
5 of the medium 38 oz. Rectangle Canister with Turquoise Lid - exterior dimensions 5-3/8" long x 3-3/4" wide x 5-3/4" high - holds one 5 or 6 count box of granola bars, or one typical box of Keebler crackers, or half a box of dry pasta (after cooking the first half of the box); also put my partially-used bag of powdered sugar in one of these.
4 of the large 52 oz. Rectangle Canister with Turquoise Lid - exterior dimensions 5-3/8" long x 3-3/4" wide x 7-1/2" high - holds one full container of Quaker oats (to make oatmeal), or one full bag of egg noodles; also put my partially-used bags of flour and granulated sugar in these.
The exterior dimensions include the height of the lids; subtract 1 inch to get the usable height for putting things inside with the lid on, or subtract half an inch to get the full height of the canister walls with the lid off. The bottom of the 1-inch-thick lid sits half an inch below the top of the canister walls, and the top of the lid extends half an inch above the walls. The lids are all the same size, interchangeable on the three different canister sizes.
The design of the lids lets the containers stack very nicely, and the rectangular shape uses space more efficiently than rounder containers. And with one month of use so far in a humid climate, the seals are holding excellently. They look great lined up on the pantry shelves, and I labeled them with my label maker.

This product is great. Square and rectangle containers fit best and take up the less room than round. The lid on this product seals tightly and keeps foods fresh. Being see through is a great plus to me. It is one of several products from the Container Store that has made my pantry so much better! Also pictured are the shelves that hold canned goods and another canister with the lid that is attached. Both of those are great as well.

These containers are great for storing baking supplies and stack securely without fear of tipping over. Lids are tightly sealed to keep items fresh. Wish they came with reusable labels, more size varieties and more lid colors. I have about 10 of them and will probably purchase more over time.
