oxy cereal container
Oxy cereal container does not keep cereal fresh. Oxy cereal container does not seal at pivot point. Other containers seem ok. Do not buy this product, expensive and a waste of money.
Purchased in July 2021 at Costco for $19.00.
Not like the original OXO good grips
I used to have the OXO good grips at my parents which were great (the pop mechanism was a curved square rather than the circle on the latest OXO 2.0). These disappeared off the shelves when the bed 2.0 version came out. I bought over $2k worth of them thinking they’d be better than their predecessor. OXO 2.0 lids pop off on their own simply by being stacked beside another container. Totally inconvenient and has destroyed OXOs reputation for me. Regret the money I paid for these. I wrote an email to OXO to ask them to revise their lids (make the...m more tight so they cling to the container) and suggesting they do a recall on the current lids. The worst are the 200ml size which I’m using for my herbs and spices. What a mess!!!! PLEASE OXO, take my suggestion into account.

Oxo POP Rectangle Tall, 3.5 litre container
Every since I bought this in the summer the lid comes off without having to POP it open. On 14th September I spoke to someone in Customer Service who promised a replacement lid. This has never been sent despite many emails from them after promptings by me that it will be sent with three weeks. it has the worst Customer Service I have ever come across. I shall not being buying any more of their products.
TERRIBLE ! These containers are useless.
Expensive product, the lids do not close tightly. Unable to store food safely. My dry foods have gone stale & I have wasted so much money on these products, that look good, but are useless.
I have since bought a cheaper brand "Sistema" containters from Woolworths & it is so much better.
My wife bought these because they were “cute”. They are terrible! Our food goes stale and I just grabbed my rolled oats from the cabinet and the lid came un-done as easy as a shoelace and spilled everywhere! I would NOT buy these containers. Very over-priced as well. Go back to the drawing board OAX! I never write reviews but I felt it necessary this time to warn people, Do not use these containers.
Purchased in November 2017.
Honestly I was so glad I got these containers. They look great, modern and made well! I feel like I can have food in these containers for years and they will still be fresh! love oxo !!!
Purchased in March 2019 for $170.00.
They Absorb too much moisture
these containers absorb too much moisture and seem to make food soggy etc. however when storing dry foods it is very beneficial and the container seals are strong so no need to worry about things falling through. Not the worst product, I would get it as long as the price is right.
Have had these for about a year now and they are great for storing my flour, sugar, brown sugar, dry pasta and much much more. They are thick and I love the clear look. Containers are easy to clean, yet the lid takes forever to dry. The lids do pop open at times and they are not air tight. But I still love them and cont. to buy more. The only bad things about them is they are pricey. :(
Great looking and ergonomic, but NOT air tight
Amongst storage containers, by far these are the best looking and best ergonomic to open / close, but they are NOT air tight. Here's my run down of pros and cons:
1. Best looking storage containers
2. Stack reasonably well
3. Easy to open/close
4. Variety of good sizes
1. Not air tight ...
Great Storage Solution for the Organiser in the family :-)
I'd originally avoided these canisters due to price but, when a local store had them at a large discount I kind of went a little crazy and bought quite a few !
I bought multiple round canisters in the 1.8, 2.8 and 4.2 litre sizes .... and several hours later our pantry is clean, organised and looks amazing !!!!
We have a walk in pantry with deep shelves so the staggered sizes and stackability are awesome when combined with a label maker - you can see the contents as described even for the large canisters up the back. The seals are airtigh...t and the sealing "pop-top" action is easy to use. Canisters feel solid and well made. BPA Free, easy to clean, contents visible ..... what else could you want !!!! The rounds do not pack as efficiently as the square units but for the price I am not complaining !!! Solid, aesthetically pleasing, well designed, stackable, easy to use, good seal
Best airtight container
I was looking for a container big enough for 50 cookies that looked good on our bench and was airtight. The 2.5l square is fantastic. it has kept them fresh for going on 2 months! The pop design is great to do one handed unlike a screw lid or something with multiple locks. Highly recommend this container only downside it's a bit pricey but worth it
Airtight, looks good
You drop it, you break it
Seemingly great, airtight, and functions well overall. I was mighty pleased for a while. But if you drop it on a hard surface, it breaks first time. We have shattered a few now and wont be buying more than these, as I would have expected a bit more toughness than that. Very disappointing.
Works well, airtight and keeps biscuits etc. for ages
Breaks easily when dropped, so not much advantage of having it in plastic.
Look great and airtight - great storage
Though pricier than most storage items, I love the pop tops, the look and the slim profile that holds so much - no wasted space. And they are stackable & airtight. Best of all, this is the first pasta container I've purchased that actually is tall enough to hold spaghetti - the tall one is less than half-full with a box of spaghetti in it, so I'm guessing it can hold at least two full boxes or bags, maybe a little more. I also got the 3.8 quart size (4 liter equivalent I think). It can hold a ton of stuff but has a nice small footprint due to ...it's straight sides. So easy to open and to make sure it's sealed tight. I imagine they'd be great for people with arthritis - a simple solution that looks great too. The seals come off for washing, exposing the internal mechanism of the cover, so it's a little tricky to wash it without getting some water inside, and none of the parts are dishwasher safe except for the seal (which I'd hesitate to put through a dishwasher) but it's not the kind of thing you have to wash every day, so it's really not a big deal. They look great out on the counter, stack nicely and take up less space in the cabinet. If they weren't so expensive I'd use them to store all my coffee, rice, pasta, cereals, sugar & other dry goods, but I think I'll buy a few at a time. Look great, so easy to open, airtight, save space in cabinet or on counter. They hold a lot in a small space. Not dishwasher safe and concerned water can get trapped in the top's mechanism. Pricey but worth it - still 5-star.
Very nice pantry storage in a variety of sizes
I bought several of these in three different sizes for pantry storage. (The picture next to this posting is of a tiny one - click on it to see some of the other sizes.)
A number of people have commented on what nice looking containers they are. Being square-sided, they fit together very easily, and it's very easy to see at a glance what's in the pantry.
The vertical 0.9L ones are a good size for most crackers and the 3.2L tall ones are a good size for pasta (including spaghetti), but they require a tall shelf.
The lid has a lovely, quality ...
Airtight and seethrough!
What a change from the old Tupperware that I could not see through. Or those big old coffee jars. These containers are really great because they are clear and they have straight side AND are airtight. I have the same number of containers but I also have more room. Happy pantry.
transparent, sape efficient and airtight.
Questions & Answers
Have spent close to a thousand dollars on oxo pop for my pantry and have found that the food it going stale in them. Why are they promoting them to be air tight when they clearly are not ?
I honestly don’t know and I’m so disappointed. The previous design which I believe is the OXO soft works (my mums got them) are definitely airtight. You could not pull the lid off if you tried. With the OXO POP 2.0 (current model), the lids pop of on their own. You cant even fill the container to full capacity without the lids popping off. They’re terribly made. Pyrex has just release a new range of storage containers which I’m starting to buy in moderation to replace the OXO ones I have. Their lids are much better and definitely airtight. They look very similar to the oxo ones, so it won’t disrupt the aesthetics. The only downfall is the lack of size options which has always been a plus for OXO. But that’s okay, functionality is better than looks, I will improvise until OXO can do a recall on their lids and provide actual air-tight replacements.

I don’t have a receipt bought a container at David Jones lid defective after a week Will I be able to get replacement
