Cracker Stay Fresh Containers
Product is redesigned - Square top is OK
In the beginning, I was very hesitant to get this product due to the reviews here. However, I checked both the round and square top products in store and I found they were actually OK. The round one has a screw-in top and the square one has a snap-in top, both of them work excellently. Both products must have been redesigned -
1. I checked a couple of square top ones and the covers all fit snugly.
2. One of the reviewers mentioned "unless the slide out tray is completely full at all times, the crackers slide out and get discombobulated, so you must take the time to dump them out and rearrange them on the tray before placing them out to eat". My experience is the rest of the crackers do NOT slide down when I took 8 pieces out. Maybe due to the fact that I put the crackers/biscuits slightly slanted to begin with (just in case my cracker size is 3"). Moreover, if you look at the product picture closely, you can see there is an adjustable white divider among the crackers. Use it not as a divider, but instead as a "road block" to hold the crackers at the end.
I must say it is very hard to get a well designed product to hold crackers this way. My fav crackers break easily so a cookie jar is not an option. This product provides an alternative to store my crackers neatly.

Good concept, bad execution
I purchased two of the square units thinking they would be the perfect container for saltines. The lids are not air tight and fit loosely, meaning your crackers will get stale. In fact, one lid has fallen off and I cannot find it anymore. The slide out tray was a nice idea so you can quickly pull out the crackers and place them out in a pleasing manner without much fuss or muss. However, unless the slide out tray is completely full at all times, the crackers slide out and get discombobulated, so you must take the time to dump them out and rearrange them on the tray before placing them out to eat.

Contrary to the other negative reviews (perhaps of the square model of these) this Round Stay Fresh Cracker Container Translucent thing is terrific.
I like it especially for traveling, as it keeps a roll of crackers from breaking, and can be adjusted as they are consumed.
I'm ordering a few more, now that I tried it.

same experience as first reviewer. Square top does not stay on!
