I purchased two of these storage containers as they were advertised as "airtight". Sadly, they were not. They seemed well made and would have worked perfectly had they been airtight.
Forgive my lack of technical terms, but I'll do my best to describe the issue with these containers. The closing mechanism at the front functioned properly and the seal around the lid appeared to be well made. However, the "hinges" along the back edge were not made well enough to achieve a snug fit. They were plastic, which was fine, except the plastic "pin" was not long enough to fit securely into the hole on each side of the hinge. When closing the lid against the airtight foam seal the pressure applied to the "pin" area would cause the pin to slip out of the hole...thus allowing a gap along the rear edge of the container. These "holes" did not seem to be broken or cracked in anyway.
If you are NOT needing an airtight container, these are nice containers. But if you require airtight, I would opt for something else.

First let me say that I own four different IRIS containers, plus many more over the years. None of these have broken, all have done their job to keep your pet food, or whatever you are trying to protect, from moisture, bugs, your animal tearing into their food bag, whatever your reason is. If you are wondering why I have owned several over the years and yet none have malfunctioned, they were sold due to large moves (military move from Japan to Texas for example) or because I needed a larger/smaller size. I bought this, the 10 pound size to store my rice in. We buy large bags of sushi rice and needed something that you could easily scoop out of, plus the black lid matches my kitchen decor. I am on here today, buying another one of these, to store my outside bird feed in. If you've never had an IRIS container, it can be a little tricky at first to get that hinge set up correctly, I am assuming this is why another reviewer said his broke after several uses. You have to get that hinge installed correctly or else it will either pop out everytime you open it and I assume, break after a while. I don't know what else to say other than these are perfect containers. They have various sizes, some with casters (which I own for my dog food) some smaller ones for smaller pets. We also have 2 of the same size for our cat and ferret food. All of my pet food is stored in the garage. We have had absolutely no issues with bugs, moisture, nothing! Your food will stay fresh in these containers and its always nice not waking up to a cat or dog having chew through their bag at night!

Style Name: 50-PoundProduct Packaging: Frustration-Free PackagingVerified Purchase
I bake a lot of bread at home and buy my flour in 50 pound sacks. I store it in the pantry and it is a bit of a chore to schlep it out to the kitchen. I found myself taking the pan/bowl to the pantry and measuring the flour out there. This works perfectly for my purposes. I can just roll it into the kitchen and measure the flour out easily with no mess/spillage. Additionally, a 25 pound sack of rice shares the container. It can be a bit tight, but not really an issue.
One review mentioned a wheel broke off when the wheel mount failed. In my case, I am sure not to lean on on the container whilst rolling it around, it has a metric boatload of weight in it, and so far, so good.

I purchased this because I cannot store my dog food in the bag it comes in once opened as it gets attacked by ants. I found that this is actually big enough that I can put the bag itself inside of the bin and close it. Just got it yesterday. . . as long as it keeps the ants out, I am very happy with the size. The rollers work well, too.

Perfect for containing a couple bags of cat food; easy-to-use hinged lid (my kids, 7 & 3, are able to use it); keeps food in & cats out!

I purchased two of these containers. One for Laundry soaps the other for oxi-clean (in bulk). They fit nice on the shelf behind the washer. I purchased the 5oz dry bin scoop for $5.95/pair.
5 Oz. (Ounce) Bar Ice Scoop, Dry Bin Scoop, Dry Goods Scoop, Candy Scoop, Spice Scoop, Cast Aluminum - Set of 2
Keeps everything nice and dry. Tight enough to keep moisture out.
I can open attached lid, scoop my soap, throw the scoop back in and close it up all while holding wash. Very happy.

We switched to a better quality dog food, but with that comes the fact that there are no preservatives, so safely storing the food becomes an issue. We decided to try these containers because they claim to be airtight. I am not a scientist so I can't verify if that is correct or not, but it seems to be working.

This is exactly what I wanted. My *&^%ing cat likes to tear into the bag of food at night and gets it everywhere. HA. He can't get into it now. Definitely buying that it holds 10 lbs of IAMS Hairball control cat food. IF you had a coarser kibble, I could see struggling to get 10lbs in there, but it's a pretty nice size bin. Airtight too.

Couldn't find something like this at Meijer or Target and this is exactly what I wanted. Good product.

We had this dog food container for a little under one month and one of the wheels snapped off. The plastic where the wheel attached snapped and is not able to be fixed. We roll this container back and forth over our smooth kitchen floor and we never overfill it. We handled the container with care and the wheel snapped. Not pleased with product.

We currently have five cats and always keep several pounds of catfood in our laundry room. We have tried several different containers and were never completely satisfied until our daughter recommended the IRIS Airtight Pet Food Container. We no longer have to worry about moths getting into the cats' food. The cats' food stays fresh and the container is on wheels which makes it easy to maneuver when cleaning.
