Cream Cheese Stay Fresh Container is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's not just for cream cheese! Whose cream cheese doesn't go bad??? I can't begin to tell you how much cream cheese has been thrown out due to it drying out. I'm not one to eat cream cheese everyday or use a whole bar for a recipe and this container has saved me $$. What a great container & multi-use. I've used it for cream cheese, celery sticks, carrot sticks, half sandwich, 2 sticks of butter, deviled egg leftovers. Little things like that where I only have 2 or 3 items left has been perfectly stored in this without going bad quickly. Wonderful purchase.

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 Great for half sandwiches! I have 2 children in elementary school who are not very big eaters. Every day I pack both of them a half of a sandwich (along with a few other items) and I was disgusted by the amount of waste we were creating with all of those ziplock bags. I searched high and low for a "half sandwich" container, with absolutely no luck. These cream cheese containers work PERFECT! I know I could have just used the whole sandwich containers, but their half sandwiches flopped around in there, and came apart. Not to mention, they took up too much space in their lunchboxes. I would highly recommend these for a half sandwich!

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.

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.
