I think these are great, not only for food, but just for safe storage in general. I use one of these every day for dog food, that way I can buy the huge bags and seal the food up so it won't get stale.
Free-up shelf space
I am starting to have quite a few boxes of various boxed dinners and side dishes like spanish rice or hamburger helper. I plan to take them out of the box, label and date the envelopes and store them in this Food Storage Vault, so to free up my shelves for the #10 cans that can't be stored in the garage.
These are great for storing food or anything you want to keep dry, cool and out of the way. Because they stack, you can fit a lot of everything in a small area. They seal airtight as well so putting an O2 absorber in them works great too.
So convenient for storing my bulk food
I like to cook so I go through a lot of bulk food items like rice and beans and I have loved these because they are so convenient. I don't have a ton of space in my pantry and they stack and store too. I also now have a place to store my wheat that is easy to get to for when I need flour to cook. It works really great for me.
Great concept, high price
This is a really neat stackable container, but the price is somewhat prohibitive. I would love a whole closetful of these, but then I think about how many #10 cans I can buy instead. Two of these equals a really nice readypack, price-wise!
Almost worthless! NOT WATERPROOF!!
Well, I had to put these to the test recently. My basement flooded and the water came halfway to the center of the lid. When I opened the container which still felt very tightly sealed, out came the horrible odor of stagnant water mixed with $50 worth of art milk powder and 20 pounds of pasta, and 20 pounds of popcorn! I'm furious!
From The Ready Store:
Please call into customer service so we could look into this. These absolutely should not have leaked. My coworker sitting behind me is using one this moment in his back yard for dog food and it has been through multiple winters with snow and rain on them. He said his dog food has never been wet. Maybe you didn't have the gasket in your gamma lid? Anyways call customer service and we will get this taken care of.
