This is exactly what I was looking for. It is slim, holds the 20lb bags of rice I purchase and I don't have to lift the heavy containers I was using in the past. I had to spilt the bags in to two containers that were easier for me to left and still had rice left over in the bag to which I had to find a place to put that as well. Since we eat rice several times a week this sits right on the counter and no one is te wiser as to what it is when they see it. It also supasses the "tupperware looking" rice dispensers I have seen for 79.00 and more.
