The Container Store's The Chef > Indispensable Countertop Dispenser
Alton Brown uses these dispensers for rice, lentils and beans. They are air tight, and you turn the handle and it dispenses the right amount. They are great for kids so they don't take too much cereal and super for the cooks in your family! They look super in a trio or more!
I dream of leisurely rolling out of bed one morning, stepping into some comfy slippers, and strolling into my spacious and clean kitchen to a couple of these on my counter. One filled with Honey Nut Cheerios, one with Shredded Spoonfuls, and one with Heart to Heart. A perfect way to start the day. Is that high maintenance?
