  • Perfect for rice container,cereal container, convenient to bring dry food for kitchen, picnic and camping, indoor and outdoor

  • Without BPA, made of supreme PP materials, BPA free, great for healthy life
  • 2 KG capacities for dry food, small for refrigerator, pantry, kitchen and cupboard

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.
