Perfect for the Pantry
I purchased several of these containers to organize my pantry, and I am so happy with them that I ordered even more!
I have 4-6 in each size, and it makes cooking so much easier because I can see everything easily in these clear containers. I have found them to be pretty air-tight--I keep grains and dried beans in them.

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.

New diet, new organization.
When my doctor had me go gluten/soy/corn/potato free I thought my baking days were over. Then I found a whole new series of flours. It was such a mess storing plastic bags from the bulk section. I saw these containers and just knew they would solve my problem!

Catalog quality kitchen storage
My kitchen cabinets now look like they're out of a magazine. These colorful, convenient, and space saving canisters were very helpful in the transformation. All I needed to use was a label maker and I was set. Definitely would recommend the canisters.
