I bought 2 of these to keep breakfast cereals. The usual breakfast cereal boxes are so huge and occupy so much counter space. This is compact (which was what I wanted..) and can easily accomodate a half kg of chocos/ corn flakes/ porridge mix. Very happy. Am thinking of buying 2 more!! And if youre wondering if its air tight - it IS!! My chocos have been in the box for a week now and are great!!
