Yes, it works great, but...

Rubbermaid, can we talk? We get that you make really good containers. But you never told us you also make military grade glue to stick your Gigantic labels on the container! I was wondering what to do with all my spare time this morning! Thanks to Rubbermaid I was able to spend 20 minutes - per container - soaking and scraping. THIS is why nature gave us thumb nails! Scrape, scape scrape. Once I got the labels soaked off in delightful globs of wet solid, I then had to work on the glue residue. Joy! Rapture! After this quality time was exhausted I learned that indeed, the containers hold 5lbs of flour and sugar, as I'd hoped. And their rectangular shape fits well in my pantry's organization. Whee! I would buy them again, but would plan ahead to rent a flamethrower to quickly remove the labels to save time.
