One of my favorite pantry purchases is OXO Good Grips Pop containers. I have used these for two years now and wish I had found them earlier. I bought my first set at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I added more with purchases from Target and Amazon.
I am not the only one who likes them. These pictures at Better Homes and Gardens website (www.bhg.com) show pantry before and after shots.
Theirs after (containers highlighted by me):
What makes these containers great is that they are attractive, stackable in many configurations, and the covers form a tight seal. The contents are visible, which makes it easier to see what is inside each container. I love seeing the assortment of beans and rice on display. We eat with our eyes first, so it is easy to pick which of these to use with the other ingredients to make colorful meals.
The only possible downside is that the lids have to be washed by hand and cannot be immersed in water. For this reason, they should not be rinsed under the faucet, either. However, washing them by hand only takes a short amount of time.
I highly recommend the OXO Good Grips Pop containers. This opinion is entirely my own, and I am not being compensated in any way from the company.
