Great, although I don't see how the big one would fit 30 lbs of dog food
By Melissa Boone
I have a big dog and it's cheaper and easier for me to buy a lot of food at a time, but I was keeping it in the bag and that got annoying. I bought both the 32-quart kind (to hold the whole bag at home) and the 8-quart version (for travel and stays with the petsitter).
These containers are perfect. Now, a lot of people are saying that they fit an entire 30-lb bag of food in the 32-quart version, and I'm not really sure how that's possible. I feed my dog Taste of the Wild, which comes in the 30-lb bag from Amazon. When I ordered this, I had probably used about 1/4 of the bag. When I put the bag inside the container, I had to cut off a good portion of the top part of the bag and it just perfectly fit with the bag only 75% full. So I don't think a full, brand-new bag of food would fit in here. Even the container itself says that it's designed to hold up to 22 lb bags of dog food (or 25 lbs of cat food and 40 lbs of bird seed.) So I guess if your dog's kibble is somewhere between the size of cat food and bird seed, then you could get 30 lbs in here.
I don't use the spout much when feeding her - I open the entire spout part and scoop out some with a scoop. I do use the spout when pouring it from the 32-qt container to the 8-qt container for travel and it's very convenient! The handle on the side is in the perfect place to make pouring easy. The big one would probably fit in my cabinets if I did a little finagling but I don't want to, therefore, it sits out by the door where my dog's bowl is. The small one fits perfectly in the original cabinet I kept the 30-lb bag of dog food.

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE
By Susan Deahl
I never knew that I could be so happy about a container, but I didn't know how perfect a container could be until I got this one. It perfectly holds a large [22lb] sack of cat food. It has 2 types of pour spouts, one for lg volume pour [or scooping out] and one for a more controlled pour--and they work just like they should and close securely. It is super simple to put the bag in this container where the container stays air-tight, and you are able to dispense the kibble without taking it out of the bag. I LOVE that I don't have to dump the food into the container--this way I won't have to wash the container very often. The handle/hand-hold are placed perfectly, making it easy to lift and pour even when the bag is full. It is slim-line so that it fits in a tight space. Mine has been knocked over twice by fat-cats jumping on it, and nothing has come open, spilled out, or gotten messed up in any way. It is just perfect, and there are not many products of any kind that I would say that about. Oh, forgot to say--amazon has a SUPER price for this high quality item. If I had seen it in a store, I would expect the price to be at least double what I paid for it here. Thank you, Amazon!!

one of the most helpful items you will buy
I have bought two of these the first one my hubby said we did not need another container for dog food why
did I buy it!!!!!!!!
we already had several of pet food containers, that need to be opened and scooped out
When he used it, he changed his mind fast!!!!! This became the only one we used.
He found out how easy this was to use and that it took up less space in the garage
what a great design, just flip the pour spout and fill the dog food dispenser.
this easy to handle dispenser keeps the food dry so easy to use and it is well built!!!!!!!!
We gave our first one away after my old dog stopped eating anything .We thought we would be putting her down
I happy to say with first with cans of Gravy train and LBil Jac grain free dog food ,
she started eating again
she is back to her old self.
we missed the old container we had given away and was happy to find they had one here
