Types of Food Storage

We've all faced a drawer in the fridge or a shelf in the pantry that's at best disheveled and at worst a lost organization cause. Never fear, though: There are ways to rescue your cooking and eating storage disaster. Food storage containers of all types, sizes, and shapes offer both decorative and practical solutions to the many items that need to be stashed—either temporarily or for longer periods of time. Those include bread boxes, cookie jars, food storage containers, freezer storage containers, jars and canisters, oil and vinegar bottles, olive oil bottles, spice racks, and salt and pepper shakers.

Product Features

Product Features

Food storage containers aren't that complicated—and fortunately, lack of complication doesn't equal lack of function. The right food storage containers for your kitchen, pantry, and fridge can also be decorative items, dressing up your countertops as they add efficiency. As you review the various types of food storage items, also take into consideration product features including material, size/capacity, and lid/closure. Use this short guide to help find the right pieces for your home.

Material

Food storage pieces are often made of plastic, but it should be heavy-duty enough to last for many years, if you like. Other food storage pieces may be metal or glass, which are also quite durable.

Size/Capacity

It's best to have a variety of food storage pieces to accommodate a variety of food items, from leftover spice mixes to extra casserole.

Lid/Closure

To retain freshness and contain odors, food storage pieces should have lids or closures. This also enables you to stack them in the pantry or fridge.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Fortunately, many food storage pieces are very affordable—and widely available. Love owls? You can find canisters or cookie jars to accent your countertops. Partial to the color red? There's likely a bread box that uses the hue to tie together your decorating scheme. Once you figure out style and type as well as product features, make sure to review two key purchase considerations: storage spot and care requirements.

Storage Spot

Not all of your food storage pieces will be in use at all times, so you must have space to store them when they're empty. It also helps if food storage pieces fit inside one another to take less space.

Care Requirements

Convenience is key for any food storage items—and that equals care requirements. You'll have fewer headaches if your pieces are dishwasher-safe; some may also be able to go straight from the fridge to the oven and the table, too.
