How do you store your rice? Do you tie up the whole pack with rubber band? Do you use sandwich clip? Do you pour it out from the pack into a container? Do you an earthen clay jar to store it like the tradiotional Chinese?I use the tupperware rice dispenser to store rice. It keeps the rice fresh till the last bit. And it keeps out weevils. How about you?

We have a plastic container to store rice. Long time ago we tend to have a china container but this thing is not available any more because it's pretty large. Nowadays people won't eat so much rice:) It's no need to store a lot of them because it's easy to buy rice outside. I love China

I only buy rice in small quantities at the moment as there is nowhere close by that sells it in bulk. So I'm able to tip the small packets into a slightly larger plastic container with a tight fitting lid to keep it fresh. When I was able to buy it in larger bags I used to use a huge plastic contained with a pouring spout that was originally designed to store dry cat food in. What I'd love to have would be big metal bins in which I could store all my dry goods - rice, flour, sugare etc. I guess that will not be happening any time soon though!

I keep mine in one of those IKEA glass jars with dried chillies. My mum swears that it keeps out weevils and such. If she were here, she'd ask me to throw in a red packet as well, which means that my family rice bowl will never go empty. Also, I was told to never like my rice jar run out and to always keep it close to full - the reasoning? Same with the red packet thing.

I store my rice in the store cupboard on the middle shelf in a plactic container. This keeps the rice nice and fresh and since we only use rice about once a week it is easy to get yo put not in the way of other things I need to keep in reach in the kitchen cupboards

I buy 20 kg bags and store them in the steel drum here. I use it for about three months . I always put in neem leaves to avoid the pests which come. Since it is a natural pesticide I am not dscared of it too. Even if the leaves are dried up you can remove it easily. My rice stays just like that even after 3-4 months.

Hey, I'm your husband staying in the same apartment, where else do you think? Haha. Yup, the tupperware rice dispenser indeed is a worthwhile investment & yeah I agree on what you said - check for weevils before mixing the new packet with the remainding rice that's in the dispenser....but we always only pour in the rice after the rice dispenser is emptied right?
