Kitchen Canisters and Jars

A working kitchen can sometimes look a little messier than what you had imagined when you first started your kitchen renovation – cereal boxes, coffee jars, tea bags and all manner of other packaged food items can clutter the surfaces and spill out of the cupboards.

One way some homeowners like to try and keep things tidy and keep everything in line with their interiors style is to decant foodstuffs into canisters and jars. Kitchen canisters and storage jars can hold all sorts of items and they don't just make your kitchen look neater and tidier, they can preserve food items for longer in resealable containers rather than in the open bags or boxes that they first came in. Tea and coffee canisters and sugar pots are some of the most popular kitchen canisters as they make it easy to have a handy hot drink making area in your kitchen, probably next to your kettle, so you don't have to go routing around the cupboards and drawers in search of tea bags or coffee granules. Matching canisters for tea, coffee and sugar will keep your kitchen orderly and stylish, so take a look at retro tins, ceramic jars and modern canister designs.

Glass storage jars are useful all around the house, but especially in the kitchen as they allow you to see how much food you have left in the jar and check whether it has spoiled or not, without even opening the lid. Preserving jars, which have a seal and metal fastener, are perfect for keeping food items that need to be protected from stale air fresher for longer. They also add a sense of rustic charm to a kitchen if you choose to display them on shelves and countertops. For some items it is actually much easier to decant them into kitchen canisters or storage jars for future use than use them out of the packet. Spaghetti jars are much more practical for keeping long strands of dried spaghetti than flimsy packets that mean you spill strands everywhere when you get them out of the cupboard!

Discover a whole range of kitchen canisters and storage jars online, in a variety of styles, colours, patterns and designs. If you're worried about mixing your coffee with your sugar or loosing the tea canister, look at designs with names written on the front, or simply the letters C, S and T. Otherwise, think about the style of your kitchen appliances and interior design, and look for canister designs that will complement.
