Customer Reviews


Rugged enough to hold up to everyday use, but flexible enough that the dishwasher can't drop them and crack them like the clear containers. Be aware that every manufacturer makes them slightly different circumference so our old lids fit on top but do not snap on. If this is a concern for you, you will want the recommended lids.

Greg B. from Big Family Pizza, Inc on 04/07/2018

We use these to store our opened coffee beans. These are great, because they are easy to open and close but seal wonderfully. They are easy to handle and easy to store.

Brad S. on 01/17/2018

This Carlisle white round food storage container will contain about 12 cups of dry ingredients or whatever you what to store. Get the matching lid to make the store even more secure and airtight.

Yvonne G. on 11/30/2017

This is a great container for larger food service tasks or for cleaning. It could be excellent for a deep immersion blended product like dressing.

Saxon M. on 11/29/2017

We love using these bins to store all our frostings and food. They came well packaged and exactly what we expected. The stickers were even easy to pull off.

Wendy M. from Bake Me Happy, LLC on 09/20/2017

These are awesome buckets. They are good for storage, but they can also be used as a cleaning bucket. I like them because they are not obivous.

Saxon M. from Town Square Market on 08/27/2017

Excellent container. Strong and sturdy build(polyethylene), the contain fits the lid with an audible 'snap'! These containers last a long time and are very versatile in the kitchen.

Josiah W. on 08/26/2017

Purchased these containers for quick storage of flour. The container size is perfect for storing about 10 pounds of flour without making it too heavy to move around the kitchen. Gave it a four star because the lid that was recommended for this container didn't fit very well.

Shawn H. on 07/26/2017

I use these for everything! I have 25# of granulated sugar in one, AP flour in another, bread flour in another....I even use them for pet food!

Greg D. on 07/17/2016

These are a little bigger than what I was hoping for but they work well. I use them for dry ingredients and storage for utensils.

Tia H. from FINLEYS BAKERY on 04/18/2016

The food storage containers are ideal for storing all dry good. I even added a faucet to one of them so that I can have water to use while operating on the streets of the carnival. I will definitely purchase more.

Sharon T. from Pashays on 04/09/2016

Use these containers every day in our bakery!! They are strong, and hold the amount of product we need!! Have more than one of these!! Great price!!

Casandra M. from Simply Southern Bakery on 12/09/2015

Nice, large round containers. I use these often for larger batches of dough. Can only recommend having some of these if you bake or work with batters.

Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate on 11/03/2015

These containers are very heavy duty. I use them when processing game or brining chicken. The optional available lids seal great and they fit perfect in the refrigerator.

Horace D. on 10/21/2015

Was glad I purchased these. We had an equipment issue and ended up with 50lbs of dog treat dough that needed overnight refrigeration. These containers held quite a bit, and made things much easier.

Toni L. from Sparky's Cantina on 06/25/2015

We purchased a bulk of 20 pound dried beans from Webstaurant Store, This container holds 20 pds nicely.Also purchased the top, makes storage nicer and out of way. Great price for this .Shipping is great for these containers also.

Dr. R. from Rosemarie C. on 06/12/2015

I use these for everything! I have 25# of granulated sugar in one, AP flour in another, bread flour in another....I even use them for pet food! They keep the ants and other crawly critters out really well and are easy to stack and open or close.

Kathleen K. on 04/13/2015

Great product and great price. The quality is even better. I plan to buy a few more and would recommend this to anyone. We use this for many different products.

Aaron B. on 03/09/2015

Really nice size for freezing and holding soups and stews for our twice monthly events. The container is very heavy duty and prevents leakage like with other lighter weight containers. May be a little big for freezing if you are using smaller quantities, but so far we have made this work. A gallon or a gallon and a half size may be best for smaller portions.

Ann S. from Amelia Toy Fund on 10/16/2014

We have the 12 qt, 18 qt and the 22 qt, and of them all, I prefer the 12. First, they're all stackable with each other and one lid fits them all, so that's awesome. But, the rims of them are a little flimsy on the taller, bigger ones. Not quite so much on the 12 qt. At least in my experience. Either way, for the price and the fact that they stack and use the same lid, any one of them are great.

Barry H. from A Tasty Affair on 03/23/2014

I have 3 of these and use them all of the time. They can handle very hot soups and do not stain either. I also bought the lid. My sisters do a lot of bulk cooking so I bought them each one as a birthday gift. Would highly recommend if you do any amount of cooking.

Christine P. from The Corner Cook on 01/16/2014

Made out of a good quality plastic and easy to clean. I use mine for my salad mix which a container will hold a whole bag of it.

Gianni V. on 12/28/2013

What can't this container do? I used it to mix up my second batch of punch, an ice bucket, a mixing bowel, food storage, and compost collection container. Whew!

Barbara A. on 09/03/2013

Good alternative to the Rubbermaid brand product. Match the bucket and lid up properly for right fit since Rubbermaid typically isn't a compatible size with Carlisle.

Randall S. from Sbarro Pizzeria on 11/04/2012

This container is a great storage item. I use it to store my cake flour. I love the fact that you can fit a measuring cup inside without making a mess.

Veronica H. from Where The Heart Is LLC on 10/21/2012

this is a great size storage container, we use it for so many things i have to order more every time i place an order

Mike M. from Golden Rule BBQ on 08/10/2011

The 12 quart round food storage container is made to stand up to the abuse it can receive in a kitchen. The molded handles makes moving it a breeeze.

Jeff B. on 04/26/2011

Great size for storing soups or what ever you need. Perfect size and dont take up alot of room in refrig., very good price as well.

Charlotte S. from Rosies on 04/20/2011
