Food storage containers can prolong the life of leftovers, keep pests out of dry food, and help you organize your refrigerator, but a bad container lets in air and moisture, and leaves food spoiled. Here are 4 great containers to keep your kitchen organized.

1) Airtight Glass Containers

Airtight glass jars are a great way to store dry goods like rice, oats, pasta, legumes, and more. These stackable glass food storage jars from Brabantia come with muted blue and grey airtight closures, and the stackable, modular design is sleek enough to be counter top worthy.

2) Airtight Plastic Containers

Glass containers look great, and are easy to clean, but they’re also more breakable than plastic. These airtight plastic containers are also a great option for storing dry goods, and they’re liquid-friendly, so you can store laundry soap, juice, soup, and more inside. The plastic is BPA free, and comes in a modular design for streamlined storage. They also seal and open with the simple flip of a ring.

3) Produce Savers

Eating fresh produce is a great way to stay healthy, but keeping it fresh is a whole other challenge. Rubbermaid’s produce saving storage containers come in a variety of sizes, and keep produce fresh for 80% longer than store packaging. The crisp tray keeps moisture out, and a vent regulates the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide. They’re also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
