IRIS Remington Airtight Pet Food Storage Container, 22-Pounds, Hunter Green

IRIS Remington Airtight Pet Food Storage Container, 22-Pounds, Hunter Green


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Perfect for dry dog food, cat food, or bird seed; holds up to 22-lbs of dry pet food
  • Airtight lids keep out moisture, humidity and pests
  • Dual dispensing lid with built-in hand hold
  • Includes 4 free-wheeling casters for mobility and wide top access for easy scooping and cleaning
  • Dimensions: 10.6 W x 15.8 D x 17.3 H Inches (Including Casters and Lid), Made in USA

According to the manufacturer model 296001 has a 28 quart capacity.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  28 quarts is 7 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon a 7 gallon container would hold about 35 lbs of grain.  That’s only an estimate based on an assumed capacity, which may not be right.

Notes from HBF:  6″ x 3.3″ x 11.5″ = 227.7 cubic inches or about .98 gallons.  My rule of thumb on grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate .98 can hold about 5 lbs of grain.  This is an estimate.  With an integrated spout and including measuring cup, I think this is a good candidate for storing specialty grains and other dry ingredients.
