Pasta Box Stay Fresh Container is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Want more I love this product. I have a very deep pantry and things get knocked over easily. This keeps messes from happening. I would love the same thing for the 1lbs penne boxes as well. Still spilling those. I have also used this for art supplies, pipe cleaners, silverware, all sorts of long awkward items. Great and simple item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. I actually bought the pasta box to put drinking straws into. We use a lot of straws so I wanted a container to put them in the cupboard. It is a little long otherwise it is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pasta container I purchased 4 of these. I love them. They hold the box if you want to keep the cooking instructions or just the noodles. The tops are nice and snug. They are the perfect size for a box of spaghetti or linguini without taking up extra room on my shelves like the old circular pasta containers. I love them and would certainly recomment them. You certainly can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for It was so inexpensive, I bought 5 of them, and I use them all the time. Unlike another reviewer, I don't have any trouble with the lids. Sometimes I leave the pasta in the box and put the whole box in, sometimes I empty the box and place the pasta in. Either way works just fine and has served me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, Rectangle and Square pasta holders The boxes pasta comes are always difficult to store. I bought one Pasta Box Stay Fresh Container for spaghetti, one for lasanga, and one container for egg and elbow noodles. They fit well lined up together and are clear, so I always know how much is left for future purchase grocery trips. They each save so much space on the pantry shelf , with room for more. I usually save either the cooking instructions or box recipes side right in the container for referral.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from less than superb This is the first thing I ever bought at Container Store that wasn't 125% spectacular. The lids don't stay on which means the bugs have easy access. They just need to make a tighter lid seal and this would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I've been organizing my pantry with Snapware MOD boxes and needed a container for tall pasta. This is the perfect size to just plop the box right in and it fits nicely beside the other containers. Problem solved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pasta container These are great for keeping pasta fresh and organized. It holds the standard pasta boxes (i.e., angel hair, thin spaghetti, fettuccine, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy several Perfect fit for the smaller size pasta packages, bought several for thin spaghetti, fettuccini, angel hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does exactly what I'd hoped it would Been looking for a covered flatware tray forever, no such item, came across your pasta boxes, bought 6, one for each type of flatware, put a label on each one and they line up perfectly in our flatware drawer, keeping everything dust free and ready to use, not their intended purpose but works for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pasta Storage This is a storage container for pasta. It will hold the box and all. Well designed and practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I have a collection of glass air tight jars that are various heights that I store my common pastas and rice in but I am experimenting with other pastas. I needed something to keep the angel hair, whole grain and other long pastas in once the package was opened to keep it fresh, keep bugs out of it and keep it from spilling in my cabinets. I went to the Container Store looking for a tall container to keep all my long type pastas in. I found this container which is perfect for my needs. It is clear enough to see the contents and a 1 pound package fits in it perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from peace of mind So, I recently discovered that mice like whole wheat spaghetti over spinach spaghetti...... After, I freaked out and sanitized the pantry area, I rushed over to the Container store with only minutes to spare before closing... grabbed a bunch of these and other food containers and went home and transferred what dry foods were left...including the spinach spaghetti...because you never know what they might be in the mood for next... and was able to sleep soundly on a school night...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Every single time I sort through pasta I end up dropping a box or it falls and pasta gets all over and falls on the floor. This is awesome becomes it keeps the pasta fresh and prevents it from falling. I stored the pasta directly in the container without the box.

I like this but it doesn’t fit 12” bbq stick.  Any other suggestion?  Thank you.

Does the lid seal well when closed?

I am thinking of using a bunch of these in a travel kitchen to store dry goods. They would be on their sides much of the time. So my question is does the lid snap/seal on like a normal tupperware so it would stay on well if stored on its side even with a few bumps along the way or is the lid less firmly attached?
Asked by: Kate987
No, sorry the lids are loose and some pop off - they do not seal like tupperware.
