  1. Kailaharper

    I have been wanting these! Has anyone purchased off brand sets from Amazon? I imagine they aren’t near the quality, but for half the price I’m curious how they compare.

    • stefaniecoll

      Check discount home good stores like ross

      • ToriSC

        I picked up several of the multi sets at Home Goods for a discount. You just have to keep looking.

      • Kailaharper

        Okay thank you!!

    • Jody Paul

      Check out Costco they carry them

    • JES

      I was gifted a set from Costco and I have picked up all my others at Home Goods. I just keep a running list of what sizes I need, so when I find them, I can remember what exactly I was looking for.

  2. Hallk

    I love the look of these in the pantry but wonder where you store all the cooking directions on the rice, pasta, etc. I would never remember how long to cook each different item without the directions on the container.

    • Klp

      Sometimes I write it on masking tape and put it on the container or cut out the directions and save it.

    • stefaniecoll

      I just cut out the instructions and tape them on the back of the pin

    • Suzmorea

      I cut the instructions off the rice box and attach with a rubberband to the container. I prob could tape it but the rubberband was closer and haven’t had an issue with losing it.

    • MacKenzie

      I purchased wine markers and write on the container how long to boil my noodles. If you swap out what is in the container you just wipe it off with a damp cloth!

    • MammaK

      Just cut off cooking direction off the box and put in the contain that’s what I do

    • T

      Just take a picture of the directions on your phone.

    • llc

      I cut the cooking directions from the box and leave it in the container.

  3. stefaniecoll

    I usually find mine at Ross for half the price!

  4. witoldyna

    I had these plus an Aldi version of these and still got bugs in my dry goods 🙁

    • veggirl

      I used to get bugs too, but then my grandma taught me to put anything containing flour, pasta, or rice in the freezer for 48 hours, before putting them in pantry. No bugs since! It sounds gross, but bug eggs can be in anything, just from the fields, but if you freeze them, they can’t hatch.

      • melly

        Interesting!!

      • Lori

        Never thought of that. Thanks for the tip!

      • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Great tip, Veggirl! Thanks so much for sharing!

      • Harvest

        Wow!! I’m going to try this tip! Thank you!

      • NikkiLLM5

        I had no idea! I’ve always kept my flour and cornmeal in the fridge but just because my moma & grandma always did. But last year we got bugs in our cereal from a box I bought at our local salvage store or scratch and dent grocery store. I love shopping there and that’s the only thing I’ve ever gotten there like that. They weren’t in the cereal I purchased because all the bags were sealed. And they keep the store very clean! But the bugs were in the bottom inside of one of the boxes. But somehow even though I threw the box away immediately we still ended up with them in some of our food I got at the regular grocery store. 🤢😡 Meantime I’ve either put everything in the Better Homes and Gardens versions of these or a ziplock bag to make sure they have nothing to survive on in my house! It’s been a year since that happened and every now and then I might find a dead bug on a shelf but I have no idea what they are surviving on because there isn’t anything they can get into. I don’t even leave dog food out anymore. I give it to them and what they don’t eat immediately I put back in the sealed container for later. I have learned once you get them they can survive on little to nothing and are almost impossible to get rid of! I feel like the lady on the commercial for one of the pesticide companies that has an immaculate home with all of her food in these containers. Lol. I’m just not that immaculate. Lol. But those bugs are a nightmare to get rid of! Good to know about the freezing hack!

  5. Steph

    Sorry these are not what they seem. Purchase several to store brown sugar, granulated sugar and flour. Both sugars clump up even when putting sugar discs inside. While I still use them because I really do not want to buy something else to replace them, I wouldn’t buy more for further storage at least for food. Not worth it, IMO.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Sorry to hear about that. Thanks for the honest comment, Steph!

    • lmh

      I agree. I got rid of mine. Everything turned stale in them.

    • Mary

      Sadly, I agree. While I LOVE the look of the containers, my brown sugar turned hard as a rock (I used the brown sugar disc as well). So, back into my old, tried-and-true Tupperware container it goes. I also don’t like the containers for dried fruits like mango and craisins, because they also got too dry, stale, and inedible. But, I do like them for Splenda packets, granulated Stevia, monk fruit sugar, dried pasta, dried beans, etc. I will continue to use them, but have learned what I can and can’t use them for. However, for the price of these, I do think I should be able to store anything in them without worry about spoilage. Just my opinion.

      • NikkiLLM5

        I wanted so much to replace my Tupperware canisters just because of looks. My grandma and Moma both used them. I just wanted something more up to date looking. But I’m like you when it comes to my sugar. I just can’t find anything that even compares to keeping my sugar completely dry and clump free as Tupperware. Now if they could just make them more trendy. Lol.

    • Cleveland6

      I love the look of these, however, I agree – everything gets stale much faster than if you just leave it in its original packaging.

    • llc

      I had the same experience with coffee. Hard as a brick. Thankfully, i was only gifted 2 of these. I normally use glass. It’s really a healthier storage method. Even the “good” plastic isnt a good food storage method. I buy large glass jars at Cost Plus Wold Market for large jars to store pantry staples.

  6. Sunny

    I got walmart version for flour and white sugar. It seems to be holding well. I use glass screw jar for brown sugar because it tends to clump more.

  7. Becky

    I absolutely love these. My mom bought be a set 10+ years ago and I still use them for all my baking goods.

  8. melly

    I use mine for rice, lentils, and quinoa. Love these!

  9. Jen S

    Need an air tight canister for ground coffee, can’t be clear. Any recommendations???

  10. Ann

    If anyone still does Kmart and shop your way (with the points that you want to spend ) they carry them as well.

  11. Kara White

    I have started switching to these in my kitchen and absolutely love them!

  12. Angela

    I have many of these.
    1) the large ones are quite pricey and you usually have to buy those individually because the sets have only one large, if that . The sets are mostly small containers that give limited use due to their small size
    2) the lids will come off if you grab them by the top to pull from the cabinet. This is a big deal to me, as that’s how I get them down.
    You cannot turn them on their side to store them, once filled. The pop on the top makes that impossible.
    3) sizes are small, in general
    They are very high quality, however. Heavy and thick. They will last forever. They work. They keep the air out. I have to buy large storage from other companies because the Pop containers are just not that big. None of them fit a box of cereal, I found. But, if you need smaller containers, and can grab them by their sides, they are awesome. Just know their limitations. I’d buy more.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your helpful review on these, Angela! We sure appreciate hearing about your experience!

  13. Jody Paul

    I like the oxo also, however I think the Rubbermaid brilliance set is better for those like me who tend to drop things. They stay closed when dropped!!!!!

  14. MacKenzie

    I purchased wine markers and write on the container how long to boil my noodles. If you swap out what is in the container you just wipe it off with a damp cloth!

  15. MacKenzie

    I got a set of three for Christmas in 2019 and while I do really like that they keep my flours and sugars fresh, the lids are junk. When I pick up my containers the lids will just come off without ever pushing the button to release it. At first I thought maybe I just had a faulty lid, but all three of mine do that. I go through all-purpose flour pretty quickly so I don’t have an issue with moisture or bugs, but my sugar does get some clumps in it, nothing that can’t be fixed though. I will continue to use mine as they were expensive, but I won’t buy any more of this brand. I did buy some similar from Sam’s Club, and my smallest container cracked, but otherwise this brand has worked well for storing pastas, nuts, and chocolate chips.

    • Candy M

      I think I would try contact the company. I have had all my flours, sugar, brown sugar , pasta etc in these containers for months without any issues.It could be worths try but check which way you seal is supposed to be inside the lid.

    • Jody Paul

      I also have the Sam’s brand. I like the Rubbermaid brilliance. The lids on the Sam’s brand are harder to wash,

      • jrosie

        Thank you for this suggestion!

  16. Kathleen C

    I agree the lids are an issue. We can’t pick any of ours up by the lid. We’ve been using them for several years now and just make sure we don’t pick it up by the lid. Also, if you drop it, be prepared for a break or crack. Twice now that has happened and a corner cracked open. Still like them for the RV and tidying up the pantry.

  17. ksteele293327

    My OCD can’t handle these all being random sizes 😜 oh… and what do you do with leftovers that won’t fit in there? Like extra sugar or flour?

    • Mamamia

      Exactly!

  18. Julianne916

    Starting today at Costco: Prepworks ProKeepers Bakers 6-Piece Storage Set for $23.99! Can also buy online and pay $3 shipping. This set is far more at Target. I only have the flour canister now, but I really like it. It’s sturdy and stackable, has measurements lines and a bar to level off flour.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks, Julianne916! We’ll look into that!

  19. Katie

    For OCD peeps—— each store has a different shaped top!! BBB, target and Walmart maybe more each have a different lid!!!

  20. Laurie Villotta

    I got all of ours at Tjmaxx and home goods. Much cheaper and we bought them as we saw them. Love them. Do not buy knock offs.

  21. tiredday

    I’ve stopped buying Oxo Pops. A small drop cracks the plastic. I have a 3yr old.

  22. Olgraygirl

    I have the larger size of these OXO pops to store (dry) cat food. They have so far performed perfectly for almost 10 years of daily use. Highly recommend!

  23. DJ

    These are the absolute best!

  24. Tara

    Agree with those that say they are junk. Got them when they first came out—invested in them and as others have stated–the lid comes right off without being popped open. They are not air or water tight. They are insanely overpriced and overhyped. Anyone want to buy mine? LOL

    • DeeMarie

      I bought one OXO years ago to store coffee in, love it and it is air tight and I’m still using it. Bought a set of the new ones and I do not like them at all, like Tara said they are not air tight, the lids just pull right off. So disappointed, now I just store food items that are individually packaged, wasn’t worth the money to me.
      After examining the lids, the seals are made differently

  25. Emily

    I have had great luck with the Felli Flip-Tite version of these. They seem to seal a little tighter.

  26. pmt07

    I just bought these from Macy’s. I’ve noticed that a lot of ppl complain about freshness issues…I got a real good deal on the 10 piece set so I guess I’ll just try them out. But should I wash them before I use them?

  27. momof5

    I have been using these for 13 years and I love them! I put a slice of bread in my sugars to prevent clumping 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great tip! Thank you! 🙌

  28. skmiller

    I didnlike mine. The lid lifted right off when closed, didn’t think that would keep things fresh. Donated them all

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Sorry to hear the lids didn’t stay on. Thanks for the honest feedback!

  29. fumi

    I like the look of it and I have few of these to store spagehtti, but usually I like to reuse the plastic jars from Costco that the nuts come. And we buy a lot of mixed nuts from there. Also the sealed glass jars from home goods or ikea works really well to keep the brown sugar or coffee fresh. At least I never found clumped brown sugar.

  30. Jessica

    I have the Better Home and Garden containers from Walmart. We store coffee and coffee creamer in them and LOVE them!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you, Jessica!

  31. Julie

    I want one that holds a loaf of bread! Of course I saw it on TikTok but can’t find it anywhere

  32. Csandst1

    BJ’s has their version on sale for $35-12 piece set.

  33. Laurie Villotta

    Never have had any problems with mine. I got all of mine from TJ Maxx. Much cheaper than anywhere else.
