Best Storage Jars for the Kitchen

In my opinion, storage jars are a vastly underrated piece of kitchenware. They keep their contents fresh and dry. They maximise cupboard space. They allow you to see ‘what’s in’ without rummaging through bags and tins. Also – they look great! Let’s lift the lid on a few…


A tough collection of containers that are built to last.

This set certainly makes the most of the space available. They stack one on top of the other, allowing you to see exactly what the cupboard holds at a glance.

They have high impact ABS plastic lids that prevent breakages and they also feature an
airtight lock mechanism that keeps the food fresh.

There are seven containers in total and each has reusable chalkboard labels. This allows you to keep track of which container holds what and also to change their uses
over time.

Best features
• Reusable labels
• Tough, air-tight lids
• Stackable
