Narrow Stacking Canisters
Perfect coffee-bean storage!
I recently looked all over the Internet to find a replacement for a broken clear-plastic storage container for short-term storage of coffee beans. I wanted three containers to hold three different kinds of beans, sitting side by side. My cabinet space is limited horizontally, so round or square footprints make poor use of the space. The 6-7/8â¿ x 3â¿ x 5-1/8â¿ dimensions (hwd) of the 39-oz version were perfect! While the containers will not hold a full pound of coffee (about 13-oz max), I like to break down my pounds of coffee into 8-oz portions, keeping the balance frozen until ready for short-term kitchen storage.

I got these rather than the Click Clack or Good Grips cannisters because space on my countertop is so limited and these fit together without gaps in between. They stack nicely enough and seem to seal well. My only complaint is that because the tops of the lids are concave, they catch dirt and dust -- but that's why they stack well, so it can't be avoided. A note to first-time users: The lids look like they are one piece, but they actually consist of two pieces. To wash the lids, separate the hard plastic top from the rubbery plastic bottom (of the top), otherwise you may end up with water in between the two parts.

Great for Storing Spices in the Pantry
I have limited space in my pantry so I like to store my food products in plastic containers to free up space and keep the pantry tidy. I use the 10 oz size for storing excess bulk spices and they fit perfectly in my elfa basket. The lid stays on tight to keep food fresh.

So glad they're still available
I have been using these containers for over 10 years. They are beautiful stacked on open shelves in my kitchen, where my 50+ varieties of dried fruits, nuts, beans, grains, specialty flours, etc. are instantly visible and available for me to use.
Every year I order a few more.
