Look at the area where the hinge of the flip-top rotates, you can see right through to the food! I purchased 5 Snapware pouring storage containers because I believed them to be airtight. I used them to keep cereal from going stale. I wondered why cereal was still getting stale. I recently noticed, when looking directly down on the top, that I could see directly through, behind the flip-top, onto the cereal, meaning it is not air-tight. This is not acceptable. Had I known they were not airtight I would not have purchased them.

This is a great design. Saves space. Easy to hold with one hand. Pours. Snaps tight. No, it's not 100% airtight. I filled mine with water, sealed it, turned it upside down, and was able to coax a drop of water from it. So if you need a seal that is absolutely, positively, bulletproof airtight, this is not the container for you. However, if you want a practical solution for rice, grains, cereal, spices, sugar, flour, etc. this is a winner. It pours, for crying out loud!

I purchased 4 of these for my kitchen, to retain the freshness of beans, cereal flakes, grains, sugar, etc. Upon delivery, I wanted to check the seal, so I filled the container with some water, snapped on the lid, and turned it over. The water began to gush out like a faucet, especially from the flip-top portion of the lid. The rest of the lid was fairly secure, just a few drops trickled from the other sides. I'm aware the label doesn't state that this container is air-tight like the others, but I didn't expect it to be this pathetic. Overall, very poor design and does not retain freshness of food at all. If you're storing sugar in these containers, expect lumps (from external moisture) and ants within a few weeks. It might be efficient if the flip-top part is removed from the design and made into a regular lid like their other Snapware containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloridaOrchid Watertight trunk gives me peace of mind The container store is my favorite place to shop. I was pleased to find watertight containers because of all the humidity in Florida. I bought the watertight trunk and several of the smaller watertight containers. The size of the trunk is perfect for storing my many photo albums (photos span 6 generations) from humidity. Also, with the threat of hurricanes here, I am no longer worried that my pictures will get ruined. Although the trunk is not designed to be completely submerged, by storing it on a shelf, if the roof leaks, the container will keep my albums safe. The trunks can be stored in the garage and attic (which is very humid in the summertime). I cannot use cardboard boxes because they absorb moisture and smell of mold. If you live in an area that has high humidity, I highly recommend these trunks to keep out moisture and protect your treasures. April 17, 2014

April 8, 2015: After more than 40 hours of testing plastic storage containers by stuffing them, dropping them, soaking them, and hauling them around, we found the Sterilite 30 Quart Ultra Latching Storage Box has the best balance of durability, security, and affordability ($40 for a six-pack). It didn’t crack in our drop tests or leak in our water tests designed to recreate a flooded basement. And if you need a larger or super-rugged bin, we have picks for those, too.

In an ideal world, plastic storage bins are packed and organized with the thoughtful planning and care of a Smithsonian archivist. The reality is plastic storage bins are usually stuffed haphazardly and to full capacity, often in a hurry, and used in situations ranging from office document storage, in children’s rooms for toys, for transporting stuff in a move, as seasonal closet annexes, or for hauling camping gear out of a garage. They’re the MacGyver of storage accessories, and they live rough lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by efficiencyexpert Watertight trunk better than expected I bought three of these online based on reviews, and I was not disappointed when I unpacked them after doing the in-store pickup option. They are very well made and stack securely, thanks to the groove design in the top and bottom. Other reviewers have noted the seal inside the top to keep out bugs, dust, and moisture. Important note: the handles are sturdy and separate from the lid so you don’t mess with the seal when you pick them up. These are well-made, useful storage containers. Worth the cost. If on sale, so much the better! August 25, 2014

Despite their presence in nearly every American home, plastic storage bins get surprisingly little attention in terms of professional reviews. But our experts overwhelmingly steered us toward Sterilite, noting the brand’s easy availability and their affordable bulk prices, followed by Rubbermaid and The Container Store bins as other options. Additionally, we visited Home Depot, Lowe’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store, Target, Walmart, and a local hardware store in person to inspect a selection of models firsthand to become acquainted with materials, ergonomics, and feature quality beyond online and interview recommendations. This research proved extremely important since some of features noted by organizers—sliding doors, flap door lids, drawers, and wheels—felt cheap and prone to breakage when inspected in person. We eliminated almost all models with any of these add-on features, believing the convenience did not make up for their potential to break easily. We also passed on models designed for food storage, and under-bed storage designs. The bins we chose to test are your basic two-piece combos: the tub, lid, latches, and not much else.

Storage bins often end up in semi-outdoor or uninsulated spaces, like garages, attics, and basements, where they’re subjected to less than ideal temperature, humidity, and air quality. They need to stay sealed shut, so we paid special attention to the fit and finish of their lid and latch locks. We looked for both tactile and auditory cues indicating a seal was properly made, along with extra foam or rubber gasket to help secure a seal. The best plastic storage bins, which are ready long-term storage and require infrequent access, usually have thicker polypropylene or polyethylene walls, with tub bottoms and lids designed to interlock for vertical stacking. We chose to test both clear and opaque models, because there are circumstances when content visibility would (and also would not) be desirable. Good products can have additional material added to stress points, like honeycomb or diamond patterns reinforcing the lid and bottom sides.
