Containers Buying Guide

Think of your pantry not as just another cupboard in your kitchen. These days the refrigerator, freezer, and several cupboards serve as a pantry for fresh and stored foods. Keep your foods fresh and your kitchen organized with a variety of food containers. Meal prep and recipe making goes better with an organized storage system.

Types of Containers

Types of Containers

Containers come in a variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Choose a favorite with your personal preferences in mind, whether they’re matching sets, ceramic, stackable, or simply meet your needs. Keep foods, liquids, and ingredients organized and airtight with all types of food containers.

Shape

From tall and skinny to short and squatty and every shape in between, there is most likely a storage container in the shape you want.

Stackable

Stack it and store it is an organized, efficient approach to keeping foods fresh. Stackable containers save space in the cupboard, refrigerator, or freezer.

Locking lids

A locking-lid feature means an airtight seal on the container -- crucial to any food storage vessel. Some lids feature flip-down handles with vacuum-seal gaskets to ensure an airtight fit.

Clear or not

Clear glass or plastic storage containers are smart solutions and allow you to see exactly what is in each. Because the contents are visible, these containers do not require labeling, and in a quick glimpse you can see what you’re pulling out of the cupboard, refrigerator, or freezer.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Whether you are setting up a kitchen for the first time or adding to storage elements that have worked well for years, buying food containers will make mealtime quicker and easier. Having an organization system for storing your ingredients and leftovers will make prep and cleanup more efficient. Starting from scratch is a good way to approach organizing your pantry, or you can simply fill in the missing pieces by listing what is lacking in your current system.

Sizes

So you don’t feel overwhelmed once you’ve made your purchase, figure out what size containers you need and where you’ll store them before you start shopping. Sizes range from itty bitty to quite large, so know what you want to store.

Material

Some cooks feel strongly about glass storage, while others prefer BPA-free plastic to minimize breaking. Your personal preference will prevail. And you may choose to have some of each.

Design

Think about the food that will go in each container, as there will be a design that best suits it. For example, for flours and sugars, look for containers large enough to hold the contents of an entire bag and allow room to scoop. And for cereals and snack mixes, choose containers that are easy to pick up and pour from (some have handy flip-top lids).

Longevity

Consider how long you plan to put the storage containers to use. If you are organizing your pantry, select those that are strong, sturdy, and designed for long life. However, if you’re looking for containers to use once or twice or to share with others, those that are less expensive and disposable after a few uses might be the best choice.
