BPA FREE, STACKABLE, FUNCTIONAL, USEFUL, DURABLE
Rubbermaid 16-Cup, Red Lid, Rectangular Dry Food Container is another component of the Space Efficient, Newell Rubbermaid Dry Food Storage system.
Note: the graphic shown on this page is for another, less capacity unit, the 16 cup is a good bit taller than the one shown.
Measuring nearly 5 x 8 x 9.5 inches this BPA free component is a module of the Rubbermaid home, Space Efficient, Dry Food Storage® system. Since the rectangular units are all the same length and shape, height varies, empty containers, nest without problem in the cabinet and when filled stack smoothly, side by side on the pantry shelf. Units can be placed atop one another for better utilization of space.
I particularly like that the lean, rectangular silhouette allocates more storage of dry food items in less space while the see through containers allow easy identification of contents.
I find the 16 C container to be especially handy for storing snack crackers, cookies, larger amounts of pasta and more.
As a long time Tupperware adherent who frequently found herself searching trying to locate the right dratted cover for the particular container I wanted to use; I am very pleased that a sole, crimson, rectangular lid is used for each of the 4 rectangular sized canisters.
I no longer search, sort and search again; if container is poly rectangle, and red lid is rectangle … it does fit.
I find these modular design canisters to be a grand resolution for clearing out the muddle and transforming my pantry usage to best advantage. I find the rectangular silhouette of the base guarantees lid will fit tightly to base of the unit, and that the unit itself will fit with another unit to maximize pantry shelf space.
While I am privileged to have a good sized pantry with shelves; I am ill-fated in that that the shelves were put in by someone without thought to sizes of products. My pantry shelves are all large open shelves leading to need for stacking or losing a lot of storage space.
I find that removing product packaging having diverse size and shape holding my pantry stapes including graham crackers, cookies and saltines, pasta, rice and other dry stapes and getting product out of flimsy, multi shape paper boxes and poly hard to stack bags filled with the baking supplies, and into stackable, straight side units allows me to maximizes shelf space, retain my sanity and frustrate occasional rural living visitors including field rat, vole, mouse, insect, spider, insect, the occasional copperhead or other malefactor who really does want to live in the rock house with me.
Front and back pasture, storage buildings and the large barn just do not have the allure of my pantry it seems.
Sold as a single lid with container, or as a component for various multi size sets especially at holiday time; I find most of the boxed sets to have several very small square type containers and perhaps one or two larger and more usable sizes. I find purchase of individual pieces to be more economical and effective to fit my own needs.
I find especially handy that the containers stack without problem horizontal or vertical saving valuable space in the pantry. The slender rectangular design allocates greater storage in less space plus the see through containers permit easy identification of the contents.
While these handy storage Modular Canisters can be purchased locally at many big box, grocery and similar outlets; I check first at local jumble shop; jumble shop prices are better. I do find the lids to be a tad difficult to attach to base; however, I also do have arthritis in my hands, and the tighter fit of lid assures less invasion of field critters.
Rectangular, slender Modular profile makes full benefit of shelf space, keeps pantries structured and components, bases and lids are BPA free and are dishwasher safe. These items are not recommended for microwave.
