A fully-stocked and organized pantry featuring lots of matching kitchen canisters & jars is one of the most aesthetically-pleasing sights at home!
While it might seem like a trivial purchase, these containers will allow you to safely store your food for years and (why not?) turn them into bold, decorative elements: don't buy them randomly! Here are some things to consider when choosing kitchen canisters & jars.
2. How many kitchen canisters & jars should I buy?
Be realistic! Run a little inventory and write down a list of the food items that you have or would like to buy on a regular basis:
If you haven't got one, start with a coffee, tea and sugar set of canisters;
Love cakes? Grab yourself a baking set that is big enough to fit the content of a standard 2lb bag of flour: they usually come with canisters for superfine and brown sugar, too;
Once you've got these sorted, look for separate jars for the remaining items on your list. Easy!
3. What size kitchen canisters & jars do I need?
Consider how often you use those items and how much available space you've got:
Stay on the large side for food that you eat regularly, or else you'll find yourself refilling them every other day;
Look for smaller sets with complementary shapes for items that you don't use as often;
Jars with wider tops are handy for food that must be scooped out;
You could also look for jars that have the capacity of the average size package of a specific food product, so that you can then transfer it into your canisters.
