These look like they'd be useful for rice, barley, and large "pourables." Perhaps not so useful for spices...

From the photos it appears that the grip would be a bit uncomfortable.

About $7 off Amazon's price.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001FB6IGI/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1330927358&sr=8-1

Which is much cheaper than PolderOnline, who sells them for $40.

Too bad I don't need them. I like the look of the black set.

Rather overpriced at Kohl's but with excellent reviews, which included the interesting statement that the largest container will fit a (5 lb?) bag of flour.

Here they are, direct from Polder - which offers a variety of kitchen gadgets

They are visually appealing, however with the slim neck they don't look the easiest to clean if you plan on changing out the contents often.

Per an Amazon review these are made of cheap looking plastic, which kills it for me.

After reading reviews, these do not pour flour or sugar without a huge mess. I am going to have to pass since that is what I really need the canisters for. Bummer.

I love the idea of these. I wonder if they would work well as pitchers for iced tea and such.

These look cool, but right now I have all my dry goods in old one liter Nalgene bottles that I'm not supposed to use for liquids anymore because of BPA leaching. Maybe if I could actually see inside my cabinets enough to care what stuff looked like in there I would upgrade. Also, please tell me i'm not the only one who would not remember how long to cook the pasta and rice if I threw out the label?

I always cut the instructions off of the bag and, depending on what I'm storing it in, either stuff them down inside with the product or tape them to the bottom of the container.

TL;DR: No, you're not the only one. LOL

I always cut off both the front label and the nutrition as well as instructions and tape them to my nalgenes using packing tape (it peels off if I switch foods)... but taping all that stuff to one of these sleek containers sort of ruins it, no? haha

Thanks for pointing this out. I really wanted these for flour and sugar as well, so I'm glad you checked into it!

With that easy pour feature, I doubt they are very airtight, not enough to store coffee beans, anyway.

I was really excited about buying these until I read the Amazon reviews. Looks like they are messy, they don't pour small grains well, and the plastic is cheap. Oh well.

I like Snapwear sets from Target (or wherever) that have 4 containers. 1 large that holds a full tallest box of cereal, 2 mediums that hold 5 lb bags of sugar/flour, and a small that holds most sizes of snack foods like crackers or cookies.

The lids have rubber gaskets that seal well and pour pretty well. Due to rounded dome style of lid they dont stack.

I recently decanted my dry goods in the pantry after learning how pantry bugs live on the glue on cardboard packaging. No matter how clean your pantry is, every shopping trip brings in more cardboard and more pantry bugs hitch-hiking in to fight.
So I use Snapware/clones and Dollar Tree plastic containers with snap-top lids for a buck each. Any screwtop container will work - it doesn't have to be expensive.

Just use quart and gallon Ball jars: they look good, last forever, are dishwasher safe and you can get replacement lids or more jars for cheap.

You're not the only one!! Just last night, I made bowtie pasta out of my cannister and had no clue how long to cook it. I like the other ideas about taping cooking instuctions to the bottom!!

great set for tea lovers: sugar, tea of choice and creamer/powdered milk, respectively in qt. of choice. Woot didn't help us save too much over amazon's price, but def a good find. Enjoy

That's a great idea, usually when I rehome stuff into things I forget too.

I'm just hanging out, really.

KY is having NONE of these shenanigans. That, or we just don't need pourable canisters.

Who buys anything full price at Kohl's anyway?! Always wait for it to be on sale, and then use the coupon (and possibly get Kohl's cash back!). ;)

Thought about these, but then realized it's much more efficient to scoop the quantities I use of most things. (Plus, I can see myself pouring too fast and getting stuff ALL over....)

Almost EVERYTHING is overpriced at KOHLS. I shop KOHLS a LOT...but, certainly NEVER buy anything there that is not on a good discount and then use at least one of the 20% off coupons after that.

this is a visual idea of how it would look if you were to just tape the info to the container. Still looks neat right? but, this would not work nicely with a spherical container. Just for the record, my tape-jobs are way messier.
