Have had this container for about 2 weeks & am very happy with it keeping the food fresh. Do as the others have suggested & keep the pet food in the original bag - that way the interior stays clean & no accumulation of oils in container.

I did feel the container was a bit pricey so I just ordered one when I really need 2 more. I remembered seeing pet food containers at the Wal Martians & thinking they were about sixteen dollars. Went back there & looked at their pet containers, they had a different brand, one with a blue lid & compared to IRIS brand, theirs had a flimsy lid & several reviews said the lid was not air tight. That was enough for me to come back to Amazon & put in an order for another IRIS container. I intend to purchase another one in the coming weeks.

Upon arrival of my IRIS, I was totally disappointed because I did not think an 18 pound bag of food would fit in there. Well, it was a tight squeeze since I just left the food in the bag & stuffed it in there. But the lid snapped easily & it has been on the back porch where ants are abundant, but so far no ants or other critters have been seen in the container.

Another thing, they are compact & don't take up much room - taller & slim, rather than being wide & short.

Update on the Iris containers - It has been a couple of months & I now have 3 of these containers, one for cat food, one for dog food & one for bird seed. The containers are still air tight & no bugs or staleness of stored product has occured. I believe they come in different sizes for larger bags for whatever you are wanting to store.

Don't settle for second best at the Wal Martians, you will be disappointed.

Ordered this container to store 18 pound bags of dog food. They fit perfect!! If i would pour the dog food out of the bag and store it directly in the container i could get much more to fit in it. I prefer to keep the food in the original bag so when it's empty all i have to do is take the empty bag out and replace it with another bag and not have to worry about washing the container between bags as the oils from the food can become rancid over time. I have several older models of the same container and they have lasted for years--store cat food, dog food and cat litter in them. They are great!! No problems with any bugs invading the food and i know it is always safe and fresh.

This container is nice and is versatile but the seal is made of a foam material not a rubber gasket as I had anticipated when purchasing it. This combined with the way the lid snaps doesn't give me as much confidence as I would like that I am getting a true air tight seal with the container.

We have been searching for an airtight container to store our dog's food. Most products are stainless steel and cost over 300 bucks each. I had my doubts about the quality of the Iris plastic containers but trusted the many 5 star ratings from other customers. I am glad I did! We buy high quality dog food that is vacuum sealed in the bag and prior to this purchase all that freshness would be gone in a day or two due to not storing the food correctly. We bought 4 containers. They sit neatly side by side. They each hold the 44 lb bags of food no problem with plenty of room to spare. My only concern would be the plastic hinge, I am worried about it's durability. In our case, it is a non-issue as we put the bins close to the wall, so when opened, the lid leans on the wall and never has any pressure in the open position on the hinge. The wheels are a plus and are sturdy enough to roll 44 lbs of dog food around a smooth concrete floor no problem. All in all ~ Great product!

Not much to say, they are airtight, but do not seal really tight. I would agree airtight, but not water sealed... nobody said they were, just for reviewers sake though, they wont stop liquid from sloshing out. I filled these with bags of rice for storage, and they easily handled the load, even with the casters. I wouldn't roll them over much, and the floor is smooth, so they roll nicely. The casters probably would not hold up to abuse.

Top quality container though, very durable, and feels plenty tough. Not flimsy in any way.

I bought this item specifically because it said it was airtight. I live in the Caribbean and anything not airtight is found by the ants... and then they invite everyone else to the party. The ants found this in less than 12 hours and proceeded to eat away the small silicone seal on the inside of the lid. Its a sturdy container; perfect size for what I wanted it for, but not very useful since the most important aspect was for it to be airtight. Disappointed.

Quality container, which surprisingly included wheels, and held 40 pounds of dog food with room to spare. I also bought the 28-quart for cat food.

Bought 2 of the 8 quart size and neither of the lids would snap or close into place!! We tried numerous ways and times, and 1 end would always pop back up! Amazon had to refund my monies for both items. Can't even donate as there is no real use for just the bottoms!
Reviews that are good must be for the larger on wheels size. BUYER BEWARE THE 8 QUART SIZE HAVE DEFECTIVE LIDS!

Works good if you are going to store it in a space that your pet(s) can't get into. Keeps food fresh and is slim enough to tuck away. The pouring spout is kind of stupid, every time i go to open it, the whole lid comes off. Which doesn't matter to me cause I have to open it to measure my cat's food and just dip the cup inside. To re-seal it you have to push down hard and all around the edges, and it's kind of annoying. I purchased this to place next to my cat's feeding area after she kept ripping apart the bag her food comes in. I don't have a lot of storage area and needed a container she couldn't break into. This is definitely not that container. It bursts open if knocked over. If you have a fat cat that freaks out about food this is definitely not going to help you keep them out. I have to find something that has a locking mechanism.

I love this container. I Can fit a whole bag of Kibble from Costco in it.. It glides around with ease with the casters. Easy to assemble. Seemed to keep it air tight. I would definitely recommend to anyone dragging that big bag of dog food around! So much easier. It does not look cheap ether.

UPDATE: After using for 2 years .. The lid is not Airtight and If your not careful the wheels break. My Wheel Broke Recently when I was putting a bag of kibble in it.. So Disappointed! For this I am lowering my rating from a 5 star to a 2 star.
