Large sized airtight dry food storage?

I need to buy something to store my dog’s dry food securely and keep it fresh. The stuff on Amazon seems to be a bit flimsy but equally, I don’t want to spend £100+ on a Simple Human thing where you’re paying a massive premium for the name.

I have a curver one for my cat’s food which is fine but the reviews for the size I need for the dog are poor. I need to store 12kg bags.

I use a Really Useful Box which I got at somewhere like Staples. They come in larger sizes and the 9L takes about 6 to 8kg of kibble, at a guess. Good sturdy plastic with clips for the lid. I can't remember how long I've had ours but it's in perfect nick.

I have the curver one and have had it with no problems for 3 years. It's in the utility room as I'm not especially fond of the decoration on it, and probably wouldn't keep it on view.

I had (actually still have, but not in its designated use) a curver one which we bought because I liked the pictures! Was robust enough but if I recall correctly I found the lid arrangement irritating, the small hole was a bit impractical, so just used to lift the whole lid up, which worked fine. Also difficult to clean cos it's so big, it's doing great service as a side table at the moment.

Sistema Klip It Storage Container 7Ltr , you would probably need three but they stack.

My sister uses a dustbin - one of those metal ones with the black rubber lid.

Or this - or is it too big?

Thanks all. It will live in my boot room too @mimiasovitch so I’m not particularly bothered by the aesthetics, it’s more the right volume, shape, size and quality.

I find the same with the lid arrangement on the cat’s curved one (I got the smaller dog one for the cat as the one with cat designs on it wasn’t large enough capacity), @spot102. I can’t get the scoop or my hand through the smaller hole so we just flip the whole lid up to access. It is quite robust other than the pointless little flap.

We use a home brew bucket with lid from wilkos. Sorry I'm no good with links but they are available on amazon etc. We buy the big sacks of dry food and they stay fine in them
