Rated 5 out of 5Â by JANIEWANIE I'm not bugged.
Regardless of the brand of food storage container used in the long ago past or currently (Snapware) I have never EVER stored any food directly in the container. If it's possible, I use the bag it comes in, but only if it's water resistant. Flour and sugar I pour directly into a zipper bag, which then goes into the container. Basically any food product goes first into the zipper bag and then in the container. I'm very phobic about any kind of creepycrawly and though it may be a little bit more work initially, this really works for me. The zipper makes a relatively airtight seal and then the latch on the container is a double protection. Although this may seem counter-intuitive, it gives me peace of mind. To date, there have been no issues. I really like the Snapware although a couple of mine were "deformed" in the dishwasher (wrong rack). Still they're quite usable although a little weird looking and a bit off balance, but until we get new ones, they work very well. I love the square because they take up less room than round. I've had these for years already and they've never cracked or split but like anything else, care has to be taken. Now I know NOT to put them in the bottom rack. Terrific product and reasonably priced.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by lanai Lids are a pain
Surprised no one else mentions. Hard to properly get gaskets into track. Hard to secure lids so they don't pull right off. Not sure if seal is effective as I've found bugs in pancake mix after a couple of weeks. I use chalkboard labels which look sharp and hold up for bwashing.

I bought this to hold four pounds of sugar, which it does very nicely. The top opening is good for scooping out the contents. The catch is a bit odd, but it seems to be working.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MelissaP WARNING ON SIZE!!!
I love these Snapware canisters. I had a couple at my last apartment and was looking forward to buying several more to have a complete matching set for all my baking flours and sugars at my new home. HOWEVER, I was very disappointed upon arriving home with my lovely new canisters only to find that they did not fit in my cabinets! My kitchen cabinets have fixed shelves a little over 8" apart. I usually find the Container Store's measurements to be quite accurate, however not so in this case. The medium size (11.1 cup/2.6 L) of these canisters is NOT 8" high as stated. They are actually between 8.25" & 8.5" in height once you account for the domed lids. Such a disappointment as 8" would have been a perfect fit! (just a small gap between canister and shelf to allow for easy movement -- but alas! I couldn't get them onto our shelves at all) :/ They are still great canisters though, so I'm just knocking one star off for inaccurate measurements in the item description because otherwise they would have been perfect. Ah well!

Love this snapware container for keeping cereal crisp and fresh. Its ultra lite to handle, so the kids have no problem pouring out their bowl of cereal. Also has a convenient indented handle. The snap lid stay tight and sealed.

Â by rebelford Snapware Made My Pantry Beauteous!
My husband tends to rip open cereal and cracker boxes like a raccoon getting into a garbage can. I hated that you can't close boxes snugly after he gets through tearing the tops, so I bought Snapware and outfitted my pantry. The lids snap closed nicely and they fit perfectly onto the narrow shelves of my flip out pantry. Now things will stay fresh and weevil-free, plus I can easily see when we're getting low on his favorites. Gotta keep the wild animal happy!

I'm currently using these for cereal, nuts, and baby snacks. The seem to be keeping everything nice and fresh. I plan on purchasing more for all my baking items; I think it'd be great for my chocolate chips, and dried goods!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by anonimouse Does not keep moths out
I bought these for my mom as she tends to get pantry moths. I just cleaned out her cabinets and found moths inside and outside and all around the screw threads to the containers. Will be looking for another storage solution that is bug proof.

These containers create an airtight seal to keep your food fresh and bug-free. Very important. I used these on all my staples which come in bags which could be penetrated by bugs. I'm very pleased with the way the pantry.

Saves our Saltines!...not to mention our cereals, drink mixes, and espresso. The full size Snapware fit side-by-side on my pantry shelves and are perfect for at least one box-worth of cereal, cracker sleeves, or dozens of espresso cups. The mediums fit perfectly in wire spice shelving. Great for dressing mixes, powdered drink packets, sweeteners, extra packs of gum. The "babies"? Think birthday candles! All are easily washed and dried when you take off the lid ring, and everything stays fresh, visible ... and bright!

After doing on-line research on storage containers for my kitchen products, these containers were highly rated from many customers. They are quality plastic, BPA free, with great fitting lids and hand holds for easy transporting. Highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for something to organize their pantry. Did the in-store pickup which was wonderful!

I have owned the Snapware Containers before. However, they have been in storage for over a decade while I recovered from a life-threatening operation. When I was able to get them out again from storage, I was pleased anew by their versatilty and ease of lifting. I had bought my original containers from a grocery store, which no linger carried them. I thought I would never find them again, or that they had been discontinued by the original company. This was last July 2013. When I got an e-mail from the Container Store, I thought I would just check. Imagine my joy when I found them again! Happiness! I ordered the sizes I needed, and they came very quickly with nice packaging! Thank you, the Container Store. What a wonderful relief! I felt that I had been able to bring back a small good portion of my life before this operation. This experience helped me to realize that there are still good things in store for my life. Thank you again, the Container Store! Wonderful!

I have a small dog and this container is great to keep her kibble fresh. Food stays fresh and lid stays firmly closed even resting on its side (which is what I have to do). Appears very sturdy as I have already dropped it twice and no damage! Will try other sizes as need arises. I recommend.

These containers are useful because of the range of sizes, how airtight they are & their square footprint on the shelf. Being clear you can easily see what is inside. They also hold a lable well.

These large Snapware Containers are great for storing my bulk almond & walnuts and sunflower nuts that I use on my salads and for cooking. They keep five pounds of nuts fresh for up to 3 months with no problems. The positive click sound lets you know the top has closed and has sealed a nice touch. I can highly recommend this product to any one looking for a good BPA free container.

I've been on a kick to organize our pantry and get rid of all the loose bags and boxes. These containers were a great choice for that. I love that they're clear and have a good seal. They would be even more perfect if they had flat tops (instead of slightly rounded ones) to improve stacking.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by LizzieLizzie Disappointed
Was delighted at design with rubber/plastic seal under the snap lid when the items arrived. I have a few flour moths once in a while and I wanted to keep them out of food products. I bought a brand new bag of grits last week and filled the smallest container. This morning I opened the lid and found webs, dead moths and a couple of live ones. I haven't looked at the other snap lid containers I bought and filled with dry curly pasta because I am so .... so.... displeased.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lymira I love these containers. Made in the USA was my major selling point, and they have met every expectation. I had pantry moths, and they do not get into these. I'm about to order more containers for all my cereal. I would recommend these to anyone.
Get the big ones for flour, as it fluffs when you pour it in, the medium will hold a bag of corn meal, but it is FULL.

I use the largest size Snapware to store cereal. It makes it easy for my kids to find what they want and creates a uniform look since I keep them out in view on top of my refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tvs67 GREAT for storing coffee!!!
If any of you buy those large bags of Dunkin Donuts coffee from Costco, THIS product can hold ALL of that coffee!!! It smells fresh every time I open the container. I was pouring out the coffee powder into the small Snapware container and placing the rest in the fridge. I then decided to try the large size Snapware container and it's been great!!! I don't have to worry about pouring the coffee out 3 or 4 times into a small container!!! Just pour the coffee powder into the large container one time and you're done!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by madcook A good solid product
I actually love these Snapware containers. I use them to store beans, rice, grains, dried fruit, etc. in my pantry. They are great for keeping dry goods fresh and the bugs OUT! The only drawback to these is that they are NOT dishwasher safe, therefore they must be washed and dried by hand. Since those occasions with this type of storage container are rare, this is acceptable to me, and I have acquired quite a few of these in various sizes for my pantry.

I really like these because they have hand grips built in, so they're easy to pick up even when filled with something heavy. They're very well made, and the caps open and shut easily. Also, the mouths are very wide. The largest size is bigger than most people will need for things like sugar and flour. The small and medium ones hold a lot. I will buy more.
