Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by clemensun Terrible -- lid is worthless
I love buying Sterilite products because they're made in my state. However, this product is terrible. The latches on the lid simply don't close, making it worthless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by oregonmom Good only if you want cereal all over your countertop
I bought two of these containers at Target for holding cereal as we've been invaded by ants. They look nice and do keep the ants out, but unfortunately, the lids are pretty much impossible to latch securely. There is always one side that doesn't latch, so you can't pour the cereal out through the opening at the top of the container, you have to remove the top completely. If I didn't live 60 miles from the nearest Target, I would return them, especially since they weren't the least expensive containers available.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tina B Great idea, poor execution
I've been looking for quite some time for the perfect cereal container so when I found these at target I was thrilled. You can only imagine my disappointment when I got them home only to find that the side clips won't stay closed. You can snap them closed and literally stand there and watch them pop open. I'm VERY disappointed!! Sorry, Sterilite, but I think you dropped the ball on this one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GardenGal3 Great Design, Snap Lid Troubles
Sterilite is usually a favorite of mine, but this product has some design troubles. The over all look, durability and purpose is well thought out, although the side snap lid won't stay snapped and contents doesn't stay fresh or in the bin when traveling. When the lid doesn't snap, the small top opening is then not even usable. Some tweaking and this product would easily be bumped to a 5-star product.

I purchased this container to store cereal in hoping it would stay fresher longer. I am extremely disappointed because it does not stay shut! One side always pops up regardless of how full the container is. Do not waste your money! I am back to clipping the bags inside the cereal boxes again…

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shannon great storage containers
These containers seal well and serve their purpose. There is an indentation on one side that serves as a 'handle.' This is no problem if you're storing grains or dry goods directly in the box. However, if you're like me and store multiple items in one container like various half-finished bags of rice and cereal, the 'handle' limits the items that can fit on one side.

Bought one, exchanged it because the lid would not stay closed. The new one has the same issue. This makes it useless for the cereal I bought it for.
