Dry Food Vault


Product Information

The Dry Food Vault is an absolutely airtight storage container for dry food - particularly pet food. It has a 50 pound capacity, so standard 40 pound bags of pet food fit with ease. Now you won't have to wrestle with bulky, open bags that expose your pet's food to air, excessive moisture and pests. With a spin of the patented lid, the Vault locks in freshness and flavor. It is made of high-impact, food-grade plastic for durability and is completely water- and weatherproof, so it can be stored outside. In addition to pet food, the Food Vault is perfect for storing bulk purchases of any type of dry food: bird seed, flour, rice, corn or sugar.

  • Made of FDA-approved, food-grade plastic
  • Food scoop is not included


Made In:



BPA Free


  • 14" sq. x 20" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent storage bins Bought two of these to hold dog food and treats for my two large Rhodesians...they are secure an work like a charm. April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I own a small business and keep large quantities of rice flour on hand. This is the perfect storage unit for it. It keeps it dry and fresh allowing me to store the rice flour safely. It would be nice if there were smaller sizes. Perhaps two slightly smaller. It's also an attractive looking storage container. Not the usual ugly bulk container the market is littered with. April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Bird Food Storage The Dry Food Vault is the ONLY storage container I have used for bird seed and peanuts that does not allow infestation by pests. They're so dependable, I own three. If you like to feed the birds, run---do not walk---to Container Store and get a vault! April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous ... wish it came in different sizes I usd this for human food storage -- I buy bulk rice, flour & beans (I'm an artisanal tofu / miso / tempeh maker in my spare time#. Have had my first 2 vaults for >5 years and now have 2 more. Reassured by the NSF approval. I can only repeat what everyone else has said: they're waterproof beyond belief, sturdy, airtight #BTW, to keep insects out of flour, I understand a few bay leaves up near the top work wonders as a repellant#. My only regret is that they don't come in smaller sizes -- I now buy my rice in 25-30 bags #I have Japanese brown, haiga [partially milled brown], brown basmati and jasmine) and don't need full size for each. I just pick up a stainless steel scoop when I buy the vault and keep it inside the vault. Makes serving easy. Don't know what I'd do without these food vaults. February 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT except Difficult to *dry* so LINE the vault w/ a thick plastic bag & THEN either pour in your pet food or place pet food bay within (personally, I don't like keeping the original bags b/c I'm afraid of bugs). I wish the Container store had each of the next 2 sizes down (hello? cats? small dogs? Don't need a 40lb container!). I have a smaller version and it's the BEST container ever! (have had at least 5 years). So sturdy that I've used it as a step-stool ;-) Where I bought it is a complete lie as there was no other option. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great storage I purchased one about a year ago for flour storage and it has been great. I purchased this one for powdered sugar .They are a safe and sanitary way to store large quantities of food . They are also wonderful for long term storage of food.I hope to get another one for granulated sugar also. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dry Food Vault: Had a friend of mine stop in the container store and buy me two of these Vaults,one for flour and one for sugar...Best of the best dry food storage ever made...Waiting for friend to go to Dallas to pick me up two more..Wish we had a Container store in OKC/Norman Metroplex... November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great storage product I highly recommend this product. I have been purchasing flour in bulk for years. Previously I transferred large sacks of flour into smaller approx five pound containers. This was a painstaking and messy process. The mouth of this container is large enough to simply dump the entire sack of flour into it. The container is large enough to hold a lot of product and the airtight feature keeps the product fresh. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this container. And although it was more than I wanted to spend I feel like it was worth every penny and plan on purchasing more in the future to hold other types of flour and animal food. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wise purchase I have 3 bags of dog food that I mix and feed my special needs Sharpei - I should have gotten this container years ago - it is huge and seals tight and the 3 bags of food are now mixed into one container and will stay fresh for months- keeping my pantry much neater!!! Its very reasonable priced as well. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase! We needed a good storage method for bulk flour, this works perfectly! April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this. Perfect container. We leave it outside and have never had any issues with rain, etc. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prevents Ants I had trouble off and on for years with ants getting in the cat food container. I bought a smaller version of this and have never had ants get in the cat food since. February 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dog Food Container: So far, so good I bought this since my other dog food containers (the ones with the wheels) kept falling over and breaking. I live in a windy part of DFW, and my dog food containers are constantly being blown off the porch. I have two, and one tends to break every year. I bought this one since it's design seems simpler and less prone to breakage if it were to fall or get blown over. It is more expensive, like the other reviewers said. However, I've also had to replace the cheaper ones every year. So, I'm hoping this will be more economical in the long run. January 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Storage for Dog Food My husband bought this, thinking it was $12 (until I read the receipt when he got home). I was a little shocked by the price but wasn't going to drive 1.5 hours to return it so we put it to use and, after months, I have to say that I love this thing, It's worth the money, but I'll admit that if I had been shopping, I'd have passed over it. Glad the hubby bought the thing! I'd give it 5 stars but the darned o-ring (gasket) falls off the lid about 20% of the time which is a little aggravating (considering the cost). All in all, I do love it and highly recommend it if you have pets and want clean, safe, dry storage that the dogs can't get into and if they tip it over, it WILL NOT spill. October 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, air-tight container! I bought this large container to store emergency food supplies for long duration. It's a solid container with a nice air-tight seal. The container is large enough to store about 18 MREs (full size with heaters). I know I don't have to worry about pests or water penetrating the inside. Very satisfied with the purchase. BTW, I have smaller Gamma2 containers from other vendors that I use for bird seed, etc. They all come with a scoop. October 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not too much money Hadn't found anything to hold the dog food dry, off the floor, big enough for the whole bag, strong enough not to break and with no smell. Great product - worth the $. May 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy duty This container is great! Love the shape and size. seals well and great for flour! April 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing BPA-free Pet Food Bin As a couponer, I felt a little guilty spending this much on a container; however, the size of this thing allows me to buy pet food when it's on sale, so I'm getting BACK the money I spent. In addition, I feel less guilt storing my pet food in this BPA-free container, which will ultimately save me on vet bills if my animals get sick because of bad plastic. Great, great, great. April 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the Money I hesitated to buy this initially because of the price but it was worth it. I needed to keep the moist Pacific Northwest air out of the dog food, as well as my two year old, who I guess really loves the taste of turkey and sweet potato dog food. Yuck. The lid screws on very tightly and I really appreciate the embedded "handles". March 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Storage Solution I was tired of handling 40lb Dog Food bags, what with the spilling and tearing that made such a mess! This Dog Food Vault solved all those problems and even has an air tight seal to keep the food fresh!! February 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This container was a great purchase. I strive to purchase products made in the USA. I am very happy with it. January 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! I put this container on my deck and filled it with dry dog food. My dog knows his food is in it, but can't get into it. Yesterday it poured down rain. When I went to check the food vault, the top had water on it, but the dog food inside was totally dry. Great success! September 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huge, yet compact! This container easily stores our 50-60lb bag of dog food, yet doesn't take up a tremendous amount of space (for some reason, I expected it to be much larger). The lid is easy to spin on and off and the seal is tight. Definitely recommend if you need to keep bugs out of your dried goods! September 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for people food too We have purchased several of these vaults for the purpose of storing bulk "people food". For flours, sugars, grits, oatmeal, rice and other grains, even for storing boxed saltine crackers or cookies to keep them moisture and insect free. Strong enough to even support shelving for other pantry items! This is a piece of food storage equipment that cannot be overrated. I have added the wheeled square canister unit available with one of your storage systems to add in mobility as I cannot lift 50# easily but I can now wheel the canisters almost anywhere! July 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product and love MADE IN THE USA!!! This container has a very good seal and they hold quite a bit of dry goods of any kind. I would recommend these to anyone and I do plan on purchasing a few more in the future. Thanks so much Container Store for offering these food storage vaults. June 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by really works This container really works. It keeps out raccoons and opossums and cats. I have it in my barn to feed the outdoor cats I have. Very sturdy. I would highly recommend if you have problems with raccoons. May 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Outdoor Storage We have virtually NO indoor storage space, so this is perfect for storing bulk food outside and keeping smaller amounts in a cereal container in the kitchen. January 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safe for storage on the deck This food vault is strong --- you can sit on it. It holds about 40-45 lbs of dog food and is a compact shape and size -- 14" X 14". It keeps water and moisture out. We got it because we needed a bin that kept the dog food fresh and would also, more importantly, foil a very intelligent raccoon's attempts to provide dinner for the local community of raccoons. This has worked perfectly -- The raccoon cannot throw the container around and cannot work the wheel top. I will probably get one for the cat's kibble. September 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Airtight, cat proof and Made in the USA! The 50 lb capacity allows me to mix three large bags of dry cat food and keep all in one vault. Before, I had cat food in multiple containers in three locations and it was a waste of precious apartment space. When I adopt a dog, I am going to buy another. I also prefer to purchase products Made in the USA and appreciate the quality of this vault. May 25, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Container I bought 2 of these containers to keep my horse's grain fresh. Their small profile plus the airtight seal makes this a great purchase! May 17, 2010
