I am very pleased with the quality of the lid. It unscrews into two pieces so you can wash it well.
And the container is a perfect size for 5 pounds of flour.
4 stars mean that I really like a product, but there's a chance I might purchase from another manufacturer. What really sold me on this container is how fresh it has kept my Keurig coffee cups. Now, you might be wondering why K cups would go bad. The answer is, I use San Francisco Bay K Cups. Instead of the normal plastic container most K Cups come in, SF Bay Cups have a biodegradable paper liner.
This means the coffee will dry out and lose all that freshness if not kept sealed properly. After a week of use and s two week vacation, I've returned home to the same fresh coffee I left. That is because the OXO sucks out a good bit of air when closing and prevents external air from permeating the container. This makes for a three week old K cup as fresh as the day I opened the packaging.
This will hold two bags worth of K Cups, or about 10 Cups with plenty of room to spare. Sealing and opening the container is ridiculously easy and I would venture to say much easier than other products I've tried. This means it's good for guys like me, ladies, young kids, and possibly even older adults with arthritis.
I'll post some negative comments on this product when I find one. Until then, this container is efficient, easy to use, has a pleasant appearance that's not an eye sore in the kitchen, and works remarkably well. My next venture will be with varying sizes, other dried goods and eventually I'll see how it does with fruits and vegetables.
Look at the Oxo sets (esp the 5- or 12-piece ones) to save money; 10-piece set is not that functional. There are many sizes you can do without. You can collect your 20% off coupons from Bed Bath for these to save some $ as well. Another way to save money is to utilize Mason containers for things of smaller volume. I can get a pallet (12) of mason containers for just $12, whereas one 0.9 Quart here will cost me the same. I use the Mason containers for the small things like cocoa powder, maca powder, chia seeds, baking powder, peanuts, pistachios, wheat germ, chinese noodles, chocolate chips, etc. Really cost effective and still gives a clean appearance (just doesn't stack well).
You could get by with just a bunch of the first two oxo sizes listed, plus one 2.1 for your pasta/cereal and one 5.5 for your taco chips. Unless you are feeding a family of five+ (which these containers may not be the best idea for because they could crack if handled by kids and they need to be handwashed), there's no reason to store your rice/flour/sugar in 4.4 or 5.5. It's too heavy to be functional.
I don't recommend getting too many that require eveners because the smaller containers cost about the same as the bigger ones. I like the uniform look, so I like these to be the same size on my shelf. I use the pop containers and what's in them as a good portion of my kitchen decor. Lends an earthy, but modern feel. Really make me happy every time I walk into my kitchen.
LISTED FROM MOST FUNCTIONAL DOWN:
1 1/2 Quart - (skinny) most functional size! This will fit two brown sugar packets, one small bread flour bag, one small wheat flour bag, one small cornmeal bag, beans, pasta. For the things you consume a lot, consider upgrading to the 2 2/5 size. (Stack two of these to make the 5.5 height)
2 2/5 Quart - (big base) second most useful size. Use this for your big hitters or bigger volume takers like rice, ritz crackers, white sugar, cookies, quinoa, all purpose (stack two to get the height of one 5.5) Fits three of the bigger size Publix brown rice bags in one container.
5.5 Quart (tall, big base) - really I'd only store chips/cereal in the two biggest sizes; really heavy if you store flour, sugar, or rice in this size.
0.9 Quart - (skinny) (stack two on top of each other to equal the 5.5 height) great for tea bags, chocolate chips, chocolate squares, cornstarch, oatmeal, powdered sugar (anything that won't fit in your mason jars)
2.1 Quart - (tall, skinny) (same height as 5.5) great for cereal and pasta
3.4 Quart - (skinny) perfect for chips you may not consume enough to justify a 4.4 or 5.5. Good for cereals, tall enough for pasta noodles (though, I wouldn't buy that many noodles). Same height as 5.5.
MUST BUY EVENERS IF WANT A UNIFORM LOOK, WHICH EQUALS MORE $$$:
4.4 Quart (tall, big base) - chips, cereal (stack a 0.8 on top to make it the height of 5.5)
0.8 Quart (evener for 4.4) - perfect for chocolate truffles, curry packets, taco packets, bread crumbs (would not buy this size unless you have a 4.4 to stack it on top of)
2.5 Quart - (skinny) I would not recommend this size. Just go ahead and buy the 2 2/5 size because you can stack two of those sizes to equal one 5.5. If you buy this size, you'll have to buy the 0.5 to make it the same size as rest, which the 0.5 only fits sugar cubes and maybe cough drops.
0.5 Quart - (evener for 2.5) this is not a functional size unless you get the 2.5 Quart (tall, skinny)
1.5 Quart (tall, skinny) - would not recommend this size because then you'd have to buy the 1/3 size (which is not good for a whole lot) to make everything stack neatly. This 1.5 Quart would be good for licorice?, beans, and granola.
1/3 Quart - (evener for 1.5) not a super functional size; mainly for chili peppers and maybe yeast packets or something (stack two to make the size of one 0.9)
