Rectangular Canisters is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The lid does not remain secure. Ranch dressing on the floor. I don’t have the receipt because I paid cash. If I had the receipt I would return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy These are great! Stack easy, see thru and seal nice. The large ones fit a bag of BRM easily. Good buy for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I had to completely empty my large pantry to have the ceiling replaced due to broken pipe above. As the process evolved, moths invaded the damp spaces in the ceiling and formed large nests, Once the construction was completed I wanted to insure that no residual moths would invade the pantry items as I restocked them. These containers are effective functionally and attractive visually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good seal I’ve been looking for this size and color to replace an old one. The seal works well and is easy to put on and remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Larger size Great product to handle, easy shape to grab. Lid is easy to seal and remove, very attractive colours looking good on open shelves or pantry. Please, please consider cereal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! A great product for great value! I was able to buy many of these at a time without breaking the bank. I love how the lids are seal tight, and love how you can stack them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for #567040 24oz rectangular canisters were sent to replace others that I had purchased that did not have a very tight seal. This model is superb! Thank you for your amazing response and replacing with a wonderful option. Will definitely purchase this line in other sizes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fit for your Kitchen!! I can look back and say this canister is definitely a must to your pantry, I was looking for non-glass, non-bulky, clean, clear, reasonably priced, stackable containers for my pantry and these canisters are all of that. it occupies little space and looks clean and clear to identify food items. Price is a good bargain too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product As soon as I finished organizing my pantry with these canisters, I felt proud of myself! I was looking for non-glass, non-bulky, clean, clear, reasonably priced, stackable containers for my pantry and these canisters are all of that. They make my pantry look clean and organized. I can see the food clearly and they are easy to use and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a small space I have a small pantry and needed to optimize the use of it. These canisters work great. They are stackable. The lids have silicone seal which holds the contents in, without the risk of accidentally spilling stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dog Treats have a Home I purchased two of these inexpensive containers to hold dog treats, because sometimes it is just easier to bribe an old beagle than convince him to do what I want. I got the ones with the clear tops because in my pantry, I like less visual clutter. What I like: --inexpensive --take up very little width --two boxes fit one behind the other on the elfa shelf --easy to open and close --as with any canister, it is harder for pests to find the food --no ugly box to look at on the pantry shelf I like this two-box system because I don't often shop at Trader Joe's, the shop that carries the treats I like to buy. But when one canister is emptied, I can add "dog treats" to the shopping list and know I have plenty of time to arrange a trip to Trader Joe's before we are completely out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stackable and neat These containers are perfect for my RV. We live part-time (6-9 mos. a year) and these store just the amount of staples - quinoa, rice, bulgur, farro etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storage review- rectangular canisters I have used these storage canisters for several years and have been extremely happy with the system All lids are interchangeable and seal very well. When I went to reorder I couldn't find them listed and was afraid they were discontinued. When I called and talked to a rep.it took him quite a while to find them. I have tried numerous storage systems over the years, but this system works best for me. 5 star all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Pantry now The shape of these make it easy to handle and stack them especially since there's a lip inside the lid. The size of them are easy to handle they are a great product I love them the price is right and the quality is good
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from decent For the price these are decent. the containers are not air tight but can hold up for a few weeks. I like that they are stackable and have the same size lids. They are pretty small though.
Date published: 2015-02-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent These are nice containers, but I wish they came in bigger sizes. Appropriate for dry goods, but 52 oz isn't large enough for sugar or flour. The silicone seal appears to be well made. They are a good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing... I purchased these canisters a week ago and I am planning on returning them for a refund. I chose these because I wanted something to give my kitchen a bit of color and also because I needed airtight canisters for my dry foods (cereal, rice, crackers...) THESE CANISTERS ARE NOT AIRTIGHT! Please don't listen to the product description; they are not airtight at all. Might be OK to store certain things but if you need it airtight then this is simply a waste of money.
Date published: 2014-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! These are the best. Affordable, solid, easy to stack, can see the content inside. I have these in all sizes and this was my 3rd purchase of them. Will keep buying more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New diet, new organization. When my doctor had me go gluten/soy/corn/potato free I thought my baking days were over. Then I found a whole new series of flours. It was such a mess storing plastic bags from the bulk section. I saw these containers and just knew they would solve my problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase Just loved it! stackable and occupies less space in pantry!
Date published: 2014-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Pantry This product is great. Square and rectangle containers fit best and take up the less room than round. The lid on this product seals tightly and keeps foods fresh. Being see through is a great plus to me. It is one of several products from the Container Store that has made my pantry so much better! Also pictured are the shelves that hold canned goods and another canister with the lid that is attached. Both of those are great as well.
Date published: 2014-03-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These containers are great for storing baking supplies and stack securely without fear of tipping over. Lids are tightly sealed to keep items fresh. Wish they came with reusable labels, more size varieties and more lid colors. I have about 10 of them and will probably purchase more over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful cont. This works wonderful for my brown sugar!!! Air tight and water tight. Perfect size too!
Date published: 2014-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fit! Was looking for canisters to hold Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Flours and the flour fits in the medium size perfectly. Bought different color ones & taped the label on to the top. The lid comes off easily without too much effort so the flour is readily accessible, however, there is a caution...be careful you don't pick up the canister by the lid or you'll have a mess of flour all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! I buy LOTS of loose leaf teas, and my favorites I buy in large quantities. These have been perfect for storing them! I can see what is in each, the labels adhere nicely to the smooth outer plastic, they stack well, and the lids create a nice seal. You can hear the air leaving as you push the lid on, but yet the lids are still very easy to get off! They are great for the price and I love the color options!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pantry organizer They keep the pantry organized and keep more air,out than the good grips.
Date published: 2014-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these clear containers I am remodeling my kitchen and getting a huge pantry so I wanted to reorganize all my staples, grains and goodies. I used a label maker to print labels to stick on the front of these clear containers (because polenta, cornmeal and grits cannot be instantly distinguished, ha!) and I love how they look! The containers stack nicely as well. I wish there were more sizes, however. I had to use OXO pop-up containers to hold my large items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These solved a storage dilemma for me! Perfect storage for opened sleeves of Town House crackers and Graham crackers. Plus they stack and look good in my pantry.
Date published: 2013-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I use a few of these to organize stuff on my desk and they are beautiful! I love the pop of color that the lid adds, and yet you can still see the contents because of the clear body. I really like the big size of the container, as it holds a lot of stuff
Date published: 2013-09-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from for beverages I use these containers to hold my ground coffee, my drink packet mixes and tea bags. They have so many uses, look really cute and are very efficient on space. Love them!

Sizes for Standard Bags of Flour and Sugar

Which size holds a standard 5 lb bag of flour and which size stores a standard 4 lb bag of sugar?
Asked by: OrganizedJon
The largest one holds about 2 lbs of sugar.
Answered by: Deepu

What size would hold a 10lb bag of flour?

I grind wheat to make my own flower and even given the dimensions I'm having a hard time trying to imagine which size would fit the equivalent of a 10lb bag of flour? I was thinking the large would do the trick but I'm just not sure. I don't have a store nearby to go and look so I'd hate to order all the wrong sizes for my various needs and then have to take the time to return and rebuy different sizes.
Asked by: swimfishy
No, these will not come close to 10 lbs of flour

Has the White Lid Yellowed or Discolored?

I would love to go all white, but in the past I've have noticed that white plastic tends to yellow after a duration. Has anyone had these canisters with the white lids for at least a year and have they held their color? Does the clear body hold up well? Has it got foggy or showing any signs of splinter marks from hot water? Do they show scratches easily? Not a fan of plastic, but need something until I can find a glass alternative that meets my needs. tnx!
Asked by: kccollinz
My white lids have not yellowed yet. Ive had them for more than a year.

I was never a Lego kid. I guess I didn't have the patience or the imagination to build a skyscraper or recreate a full size model of the Millennium Falcon. So when I had my own kids and I saw their prowess for them, I was so intrigued with how they could sit for an hour and construct something fabulous. And then we'd go on a playdate and see they had friends that were even more advanced and who were obsessed with these little bricks. Those were the moms who had the best tips and tricks for Lego storage and to avoid a meltdown from not being able to find the correct pieces and parts and also avoid the mommy tears of those little things being all over the place (not to mention the tears of stepping on one of them that didn't get corralled). These little things can really begin to take over the house - so figuring out an organization system early will not only make you super happy but it's a great way to easily begin to teach those tykes the importance of organization and clean up time.
