This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in December of 2016. Not to go all Jerry Seinfeld, but what is the deal with those bags that cereal comes in? Most are neither easy to open nor resealable, making storage a pain in the neck. Thank goodness for these cereal dispensers, which keep your dry foods fresh and highly accessible. We've found models that will work for home or office use, giving your staff, family, or customers an easy means of portion control. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

March 25, 2019:

In selecting cereal dispensers, we looked for two things: durability and ease of use. In both of these categories, we feel that the Oxo Good Grips Clear and the Displays2Go Cylinder perform well. Both dispense with little hassle and are uncomplicated enough for kids to use. If you don't have enough room on your counter for a stand-up dispenser, the Lock & Lock Storage Container is a fine alternative. It's inexpensive, sturdy, and keeps air out quite well. There's also the similar Chef's Path Storage Set, but each container has an obtrusive logo that many people do not like. You could cover this up easily with a label, though. And if you're in the market for something fancier, you might consider the Choice Acrylic Displays Rotating or the Rosseto EZ-Serv. Both are on the pricier side, but if you'll be serving guests or trying to impress clients, they may be worth the larger investment.
