Brushed Stainless Steel Canisters
Alright, limited uses
We use these to store coffee - 1 # fits perfect in the 5" x 7 1/4".
They last for years (note: we don't wash ours except rinsing out the inside) BUT they do not have replacement seals for the lid, so once that seal goes bad you have to throw away the whole thing - so wasteful and ridiculous.

I love these canisters! Before my kitchen was always getting covered in spilled flour or sugar as I pulled them out of my pantry (which was overly cluttered). Now I have my high use items on my counter making them not only easy to get but also keeping my kitchen and pantry clean. They stay looking new (no rust) and keep the contents fresh. I also LOVE how the freshen up the look of my kitchen (I feel like I am on a cooking show). These are a great buy if you are in your kitchen a lot and want it to be convenient, functional and cute!

Rusts very easily
Buyer beware - you will never be able to wash these or even rinse them without having to deal with rust. The canisters themselves may be stainless steel, but the closures are made of a very cheap metal and rust VERY easily.
We brought these home, rinsed them, towel dried them and then left them to air dry further before putting food in them. One day later and there is a ton of rust. I didn't even know rust could develop so quickly!

Perfect for room temp dry foods
I bought these to store my flour and cornstarch and all other baking ingredients. All the contents of the flour/cornstarch bad do not fit in the container even though they are of equal volume according to all the labels BUT I do love that it is air tight and mouse-proof. it is a little bit cumbersome to scoop out 1 cup of flour from the container and there is some flour dust that comes out but that is to be expected with any container. Overall it is a good and sturdy product that looks good in my open pantry.
