(3) 1.43 Gallon Snapware Airtight Containers [Grain Storage]

Snapware 22.8-Cup Jumbo Flip Top Rectangle Cereal Keeper Pack of 3 by Snapware

3 Pack of 22.8 Cup Jumbo Cereal Keepers with Flip Top lids.  Silicone gaskets and tight snapping latches are said to make these containers airtight.  Modular stacking system.

22.8 cups = 5.39 liters = 5.7 quarts = 1.43 gallons.  My estimate for grain storage capacity is 1.25 lbs of grain per liter.  I’m estimating this would hold about 6.74 lbs of grain.  My estimate for DME storage capacity is 1.14 lbs lbs of DME per liter.   I’m estimating this would hold about 6.14 lbs of DME.  Justification for those estimations come from a review of another Snapware container.  See: Hands On: Snapware 17 Cup (4 Liter) Airtight Container – DME and Grain Storage
