Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cat food Love this container for storing and pouring dry food into my cats' dishes. Have used one of these containers for many years and just got a new one for my new kitten's food. They are the right size and not too heavy to lift when filled.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lids break! There are multiple reviews by consumers asking for the same part to be made available as a replacement item. Why should we have to buy a complete container just to get a lid? There seems to be a demand for them, so you might be able to produce a few more lids and possibly containers that can be sold separately as replacement parts. This would be the fiscally responsible thing to do and not make the consumer have to buy the entire product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lids pop open allowing ant infestation and wasted I have had problems many times with the lids being open allowing ants to get in the cereal. I always blamed the open lids on someone else up to the point I no longer have anyone using these containers but myself. It turns out the lid does seal but the "locking" edge doesn't go past the flexible edge because the edge of the flap sticks out to much. I found the only way to "lock" it was to take the lid completely off, press the flap to seal with both hands making sure the "locking" edge overlaps the flex edge. Then the lid can be put back on. Even then the flap doesn't "lock" very well. It seals, but when the weather gets hot, the lids pop open. I have lost a lot of money in cereal to this issue. Very unsatisfied with this product. Sorry no photos at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, perfect for large cereal bags!! I bought 3 of these products! Absolutely love them for storing cereal for my family! Keeps it fresh & no more worrying about bags not being closed inside box that never seems to stay shut! Disappointed reading here that replacement lids aren’t available, as one of my lids also cracked. I too hate to dispose of a perfectly good container!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Storage Lid Cracked This has worked PERFECT for storing dogfood when we go on long weekend trips with the dog. Only complaint is that the lid cracked and there isn't a replacement part available for purchase. On the bright side we got about 5 years worth of use out of the container but I just hate to throw out a perfectly good container because of lack of replacement part.
