Cream Cheese Stay Fresh Container is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't stay closed It doesn't have a tight seal. The corners keep popping open. Also a full package doesn't fit inside with the wrapper on it, like the picture shows. It wouldn't stay closed at all. It kept popping open. Definitely not going to buy more of these. I'll probably use it for packing my lunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with this product I have always liked cream cheese and tended to buy the tubs until recently when I started needing to save money. I looked at the price difference between the 2 and not only is the tub more expensive but it is also smaller then the block, so I started to buy the blocks. I could never get the tinfoil to close again after I opened it, so I was putting it in a zip lock baggie and it would get crushed. I was trying to figure out what to do and thinking someone had to have had this problem before me why isn't there a container for this. The next weekend we went to the store and I found this. I couldn't believe it. I called my mom and she yelled at me for not buying her one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the clear design I love the clear design and it is neater than keeping opened cream cheese in the box and I can always tell how much I have left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great container What a great container. I've used it for cream cheese and butter sticks. . Wonderful purchase keeps cream cheese and butter fresh. I love it so much I purchased a few more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does what it says.. I got this as a way to keep the cream cheese fresher then just folding the foil over and putting it back in the box, or from using a ziplock. I am disappointed with this however. The latch seems a little loose and it is not that easy to get the package in and out while you still have more then half a block. I may end up giving this to my mom to see if she likes it. Used it for one package of cream cheese and didn't refill it with a second.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hope You Love Your Cream Cheese & Cleaning Corners This is a great container, don't take it wrong! But it is too small for a regular block of cream cheese WITH the foil wrapper but if took the wrapper away & put just the cream cheese in, it would be kind of difficult to clean the corners when done! I use it for my wrapped butter instead & it fits 2 sticks perfectly & easier to clean afterwards! It sould be call the Double Sticks Butter Container instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love all the refridgerator storage items! The butter, bacon, cheese & hotdog keepers are great. Makes the fridge look more organized and keeps it all fresher longer!! I LOVE The Container Store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends Shelf Life! This is not just another gadget for the refrigerator! Prevents the leftover cream cheese from drying out & getting crushed or messy. Doesn't take up extra space, but actually helps organize the dairy drawer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I like this container for storing my cream cheese. My only complaint is the top had a crack in it when I received it but the crack doesn't go all the way through the plastic so it still seals tight so I didn't bother to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At Last Cream Cheese Good to the End Finally I am going to have my cream cheese stay fresh until the end instead of getting all dried out due to my husband's lack of wrapping the package back up. This has been a major bone of contention for many years. I hate crispy pieces while he doesn't mind. NO TASTE!! I may be back for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many uses! I actually bought two of these containers to organize my mini cookie and Fondant cutters. I was able to fit more than what I expected into each container. I don't have to worry about it flying open and everything spilling out. But the price is what sold me, I couldn't find anything else as perfect and not pay a fortune!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for other things TOO! Not only is it good for cream chesse like its meant for my family uses it to put sticks of butter in. It fits 2 sticks perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cream Cheese Container I did buy this for my cream cheese, but I also have found many other uses. Make your own travel tissue pack, or for a small snack of trail mix, etc. Just use your imagination. There is no "out gassing" from the plastic and the lid closes tightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had thought of it!! I'm so glad I came across this product. In the past I just put any unused cream cheese in a baggie. It wasn't long before it was dried out or moldy . I'm sure this will help with my probblem. Thanks.

Community Q&A

will this container work for 8 oz butter slab, like Kerrygold?

Asked by: cecy
The Cream Cheese Stay Fresh Container is meant to store a block of cream cheese, however it should work for butter and just leave extra room in the container. The Butter Keeper may work for you as well.

Can these be recycled?

If so, which number are they? i.e. what are they made of?
Asked by: JMorgan
