What to look for when buying new pantry storage containers
As any home cook or professional chef will know, a tidy pantry can be a game-changer for your kitchen. With the right pantry storage containers and gadgets, you can find your ingredients, pack lunch boxes and make dinner quickly and easily while maximising and enhancing your pantry space.
Consider these factors before buying your new pantry storage items:
Type. There are plenty of storage solutions for every item in your pantry. Think about what you need to store and choose from spice jars, dispensers, food jars, storage boxes, inserts, cutlery trays, caddies, baskets, trolleys and much more.
Material. Pantry storage containers can be made using many materials, including stainless steel, glass, plastic and tin.
Size. Pantry storage containers include tall and large to store pasta and flours, long tubs for ice cream and smaller jars that hold spices, herbs and other items. You can also find different shapes, including rectangular, square, circular and more.
Style. Match your pantry storage solutions to the interior design of your kitchen for a beautifully unified space. Go for a bold pop of colour or keep things natural with glass jars and wooden lids.
Using glass jars for your pantry storage solutions
Glass jars look elegant and stylish and they are a fantastic way to store and display all types of different food and ingredients. Use our Oxo Good Grips Pop Jar to store your home-baked cookies, store small items in the Pantry Round set of glass jars with wooden lids or stash your spices and herbs away in a Kitchen Pro 6 Piece Spice Canister Set with bamboo lids.
Glass is also toxin-free, dishwasher-safe, heat-proof and prevents any air or moisture from getting inside the container.
Food which can be stored in jars and canisters
Dry food works best in jars and canisters, including:
Spices and herbs
Tea and coffee
Pantry storage baskets
A storage basket is a unique way to store your pantry items that offers easy access and keeps food organised. Use our beautiful rectangle and round storage baskets by Salisbury & Co to store canned goods, baking ingredients, toys, bathroom items and more.
Pantry organization tips to make your pantry feel bigger
With the right storage solutions, you can make your kitchen and pantry space look and feel bigger than it actually is. Here are some useful storage ideas to try out at home:
Use different sized baskets and arrange them high and low on pantry shelves
Fill empty spaces beneath shelves with pull-out drawers for more storage
Load up drawers with kitchen linens, cutlery, spare containers and other supplies
Use flat plastic containers that can stack easily
Install a DIY peg wall for hanging pots and pans
Maximise your pantry space with pantry storage containers and organisers
Whether you have a small and dedicated corner or a walk-in pantry, make the most of your storage space with the right containers and organisers, including spice jars, coffee canisters and storage boxes for everything from flour and pasta to rice and cereal.
A lazy Susan is a turntable that can be used to distribute food easily at the dining table. However, they also make excellent pantry organisers for spices and herbs that can be rotated for browsing and selection. A spice rack will also minimise the space needed for your herbs and spices - try the Mobin Series Wall Mounted Organiser to clear shelf space.

For single containers, our affordable storage cube canisters by Kitchen Pro are a great place to keep your dry goods. The Denny Storage Cube Canister is made with BPA-free plastic with an airtight lid to keep contents sealed and fresh.
