Click ClackÂ® Cubes with White Lids
Great for organization, but has lid issues
I really love these canisters. They're decently sturdy and the square shapes make it easy to stack and place into corners. The round canisters were nice, but I felt like they didn't maximize space.
I use mine for various flours, sugars, corn meal, and potato or tapioca starch and find them to be extremely convenient.
The biggest issue is the lids. They do seal well for me as long as the canister isn't overfilled and you pushed it in all the way. However, you cannot wash them easily. There's an air pocket somewhere that collects water if you try to wash the whole thing. I haven't figured out how to expose the entire lid to air dry, and so have to slosh the lid around to make sure there isn't anymore liquid. If you're just wiping the top, you have to use a lightly damp towel. If the towel is too wet, the liquid might pool into the air pocket and just sit there.
I still love them and rebuy them as I need them. but be careful with the lids and liquids.

Great for pantry storage. Square shape works much better than round. Stackable which increases storage space.

Good Variety of Sizes - but not tight fighting
I am disappointed with these containers. While the sizes are good and they stack wonderfully, they leak air and are NOT tight fighting. My granulated sugar is always crusty. the baking soda is clumpy. Do not buy these if you are looking for a tight seal. But if that is not an issues, then these are good.

Too brittle for a family with active kids
What I like: the square shape and the BPA-free plastic.
What mildly annoys me: because of how the lid is constructed, it's hard to eyeball how full you can fill the containers without being unable to seal the lid. It'd help if there was a fill line printed on the container.
Why I won't buy these again: These containers are very brittle -- one broke simply by falling from the counter into the sink. For me, the whole point of buying a plastic container rather than a glass one is to have a storage container that doesn't break easily; if I have to be this careful with them, I'd just as soon buy glass. I'm not comfortable letting my kids carry the smaller containers from shelf to table because of how easily they break.
They do seal well and look nice, but for my family, they aren't the right choice.
