We use these ALL the time! Very glad with this purchase! We buy "snacks" like granola bars, fig bars, and other bulk snacks all the time. Our pantry is very small, so I dump the packages out into these containers and put them in our basement. The plastic is very thick and durable. The lids have a good seal, and they stack together perfectly. We bought these with a set of the water bricks (that haven't been used yet), leaving the water bricks on the bottom, and the food bricks on top. I'll be buying more of these soon! Great purchase!
These are just what we needed for our prepping needs, the screw on top with a rubber seal is just so practical and handy. The rings were a little difficult to get on so I took a 1'' x 4" x 24" piece of wood and used my (body weight) knee and palm of my hand to press down center to center... then turn it from side to side and did the same working my way around, if you end up with to much bucket rim on one side just take the ring off and start over. These are so worth the price to securely store food and items in case of storms or other natural disasters. One bucket will hold 50lbs of white sugar with no room to spare.
