5 Best Types of Food Storage


by Sil Pancho



Food storage is important in a kitchen to not only holding food, but also storing it for greater longevity. More importantly, good storage can help increase the space available in a kitchen. Proper organization for a kitchen can also improve the cleanup times involved after cooking meals as well as the reduce the amount of time spent of preparing meals. Additionally, these products can be used to quickly take a look at needed supplies for the kitchen. There are a few main types of products and each one has a particular benefit to creating an efficient and practical kitchen.

Countertop Storage. These products are used in most homes to hold a few basic supplies that are used in most recipes like flour, salt, sugar, rice, pasta, or whatever. Whatever is regularly used in a variety of recipes is always helpful to have easily at hand. These products are usually sold as a package of four or five containers that are descending in size. Most have seals to keep these items fresh and they come in a huge variety of designs to fit any decor.

Fridge Storage. For leftovers, for fresh meats, or anything else, every home needs a set of storage containers that are made specifically for cold storage. These products are usually small and stack well. They should seal tightly to prevent any odors from seeping in or out.

Spice Containers. Though many people leave their spices in containers they come in, it’s better to have a group of containers that seal tightly to keep air from ruining the flavor of the herbs and spices. It’s almost always better to use bulk spices anyways and these models are much better than plastic bags.

Under-Counter Storage. These products come in a great many sizes and like countertop storage, these products should be used to hold necessities that are in bulk that are as commonly needed like salt or flour are. This also includes products that are more specialized as well.

Disposable Containers. Though it is better to use reusable containers as often as possible, sometimes disposable containers are all that can be used for certain items, whether in the fridge or in the dry goods storage. These products include sandwich, Ziploc, and freezer bags.

A combination of all of these devices will greatly improve the flow of a kitchen and will make every homeowner much calmer when using and cleaning their kitchen. Additionally, they’ll see a greater increase in the life of their food.
