These canisters were a LOT smaller than I thought they would be. The largest "might" hold 3 1/2 - 4 cups of flour, they next 1 1/2 - 2 cups of sugar and the smallest a cup of something. I don't do much baking anymore. I got rid of my large set of Pfaltzgraff canisters that took up a lot of counter space. The Le Chef is good, just wish they were a little bit bigger.
I bought these canisters to replace another set that broke during a recent move. I thought they would be of "normal size" for flour, sugar, etc. I couldn't believe how small in diameter and height each of these canisters were and am not sure what others are using them for. They certainly are not made for a baker who regularly uses flour and sugar, as you would be refilling them constantly.
I should have paid closer attention to the sizes listed, but thought after reading favorable reviews, that I would go ahead and order the. Don't be fooled like I was. These look like a miniature set that a child would use.
I am returning them today, even though I have to pay almost $9.00 for return shipping charges. Very disappointed and now still looking for a set to place on my counter.
Ordered these canisters for our pantry after seeing some at Crate & Barrel that I liked the look of but had terrible reviews... these have a nice, tight seal. The chalk board area works. No complaints!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
Does the large container accomodate a 5lb bag of flour? Does the medium container accomodate a 5lb bag of sugar? thanksreallynewhome on May 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you reallynewhome for your interest in the Le Chef Ceramic Storage Canisters (Set of 3). In the large container, the capacity is 36 ounces. The medium container is 26 ounces. A 5 LB bag of sugar or flour is 80 ounces. So, a full bag of sugar or flour will not fit in the container. Thank you for shopping with us!
