I have been collecting these for flours, sugars, dried fruits. nuts, rice. They stack uniformly, clean, and lock well preventing contamination. I write on the outside with a felt pen for ID . Measure the dimensions of your cupboard or shelf how many deep they will stack .

The best storage box on the market”
This size is perfect for storing flour (I have 3!) and other sizes are perfect for sugar, rice, pasta etc. I've had some of mine for years and the clips continue to work perfectly. Plus, my cupboards are tidy and organised !

shame about the 1.8L box”
I've always used the taller Lock & Lock 1.8 litre box for my flours but you don't seem to have this any longer. It takes up less shelf space and does hold a whole bag of flour, if decanted.

I consider Lock&Lock containers to be probably the best on the market. However, this one went into the freezer, came out and had a stint in the dishwasher - both for the first time - and is now cracked in the base and the side and is now unusable.

A note from the team: We're sorry to hear you've experienced this problem and will be in touch soon to help.
like lock and lock alot!”
I have dozens of these boxes and they do not disappoint, so sent for the 'flour bins'.Although there is nothing on the packaging to indicate they are designed for this purpose, they are perfect for the job! Much space now freed up in cupboard where old larger bins used to be! I have had two lock and lock boxes (out of the dozens I own) that the hinge on the lids has snapped after a few weeks and I had real hassle getting the company I bought them from(not Lakeland) to honour the guarantee, so such a comfort to know that Lakeland offer their unique lifetime guarantee on all products. Thank you

If you buy one of these you will be addicted and add one L+L to every order you make. They are light, airtight and it's great to be able to see what's in everything. One word of caution - don't drop one of the lids or one of the "locking" bits may break off as mine did. Still use though with the other 3!!

A brilliant product. Keeps my flour fresh and is the perfect size to hold a standard 1.5kg bag. Could only be improved with a proper place to stick a label on to keep them looking smart.

I love all the lock & lock boxes, I have loads of them now, as they're completely airtight.

quick and easy”
I regularly bake with my kids and they find it so much easier dealing with tubs rather than packets. They can instantly see if they have picked the right thing. Would recommend these to everyone.

I love this but it doesn't fit a whole bag of flour. Otherwise its fabulous.

I have 4 of these and find them really useful: - They easily hold a bag of flour even when it has been shaken out of the bag and doubled in volume! - They seal well and keep the flour fresh. - They have a wide top so you can get your cup measurement in to scoop out the flour. - Their square shape means they fit well into cupboards (no wasted space). Highly recommended.

Smart and functional”
I started off with a pair of these, one for plain flour and one for self-raising as I don't use flour very quickly and thought they would keep it fresh. They do that well, and also look so attractive that I'm ordering two more, for basmati rice and fusilli pasta.A great product.

Absolutely spot on. Holds a full packet of flour so no more flour flying about... I will be buying more!

Does the job”
Bought 2 - for plain & self raising flour. At last the flour packets or cardboard containers dont get damp. Strongly recommend. I note 1 reviewers comment on the lid snapping. Have had this problem before with these types of containers & had to reprimand my husband for trying to 'force' the clip down if lid not on straight as have had them snap. If used properly, no problem.

A great range of products. High quality, sturdy and do exactly what it says on the tin (well, plastic box *grins*). Highly recommended!
