Iris 5 lb. Pet Food Container is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply Practical We use this for it's exact intention - dog food. It keeps food fresh in 5 pound increments just as needed. Easy to pour or scoop from. Easy to store and easy to see how much is left while keeping it fairly air tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! After about a month of searching for a container to store my pups food in, a friend referred me to the Container Store. I was absolutely blown away by their huge selection of literally everything and the extensive knowledge of the staff helping me. They directed me towards the pet section and gave me the pros and cons of each product. I decided on this one, and 4 months later I'm still just as happy as I was when I originally purchased it. The container has an airtight seal that keeps the good fresh, which is great for my spoiled pup who loses interest when the bag is running low. I absolutely love it! I recommend it to anyone looking to store their pets food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Container I actually use this for all purpose flour. My roommate is an avid baker, so we normally have 3-4 lbs on hand, and this container is easy to handle, light weight, and air tight. Just make sure to rinse and dry before filling to get rid of the factory smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 LB Petfood Container I use this container for my cat's 4LB bag of dry food. It keeps it fresh and in one container. When it starts getting empty, that's my signal to go out & buy another bag of dry food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Cat's Food I had been looking for a container for my cat's dry food after a mouse got in to the bag. I was a little skeptical this might be too small but it's just the right size for one of the small bags of cat food. I also like that it's small enough to pour with one hand and is ergonomic. I think this would also work well for families that go through a lot of cereal too. The container is constructed well and I'm very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful container I have two, one for my cat and one for the dog. I love these as it keeps the food fresh, stacks on top of each other to save space, and keeps ants out of the food. Very reasonably priced and made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this container. It is sturdy and lightweight at the same time. The narrow part in the back makes it easy to grip and poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek Storage Perfect for my 3 small dogs to store dogfood in to prevent from going stale. Nice sleek design, and lid seals well! Good sale price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for smaller spaces We purchased the giant rolling ones to keep food in the garage, but use this smaller one inside the house to make it easier for refilling bowls. The small size is perfect for us and this system works well with our two tiny dogs. The only thing is that it smelled really terribly when I bought it. I washed it thorughly, which I would have done even if it didn't smell, and the scent seems to have gone away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small dogs I have a small dog and always buy big bags of food to save money. This is perfect because I can fill it up and keep it by the dishes and put the big bag away in the closet. It is easy to pour from (has a little flap that opens on the top) and keeps the food fresh.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great capacity bad lid The capacity is great and the opening for the lid is a good size but the lid doesnt stay closed tight so the food doesn't stay fresh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! This is the perfect little container for a 5-lb. bag of dog food! Just one issue: it took 5 minutes to get all of the manufacturer's label off. But other than that, no complaints: great size, secure lid, easy to use. Yay!

Are replacement lids available for these containers? I'd hate to buy a total new set of 2 (wasted plastic) when all we need are two new lids.

Is this container dishwasher safe?

Asked by: LaurenW
This product is safe to be used only on the top rack of the dishwasher. However, due to the height, you will need to lay it on the side. If you are unable to fit it on the top rack of your washer, you will need to wash it with warm soapy water.

Does the top swing back for scooping food versus having to take it off entirely?
