Food storage can take many different forms, depending on how much and what kinds of food you are keeping fresh. Will it be refrigerated, frozen, or kept out? Food, drinks or ingredients? Would you like it out for display? Plastic and glass food storage containers are usually appropriate for leftovers with their airtight seals and clear visibility into what you’re keeping refrigerated. Glass food containers are also BPA free, and can go right into the oven for prepared food or leftovers that need cooking. Jars and canisters, on the other hand are great for countertop food and ingredient storage like spices. Our collection of food storage products is second to none. Here, you’ll find everything you need, from beautiful countertop solutions for dry goods to products for storing Fido’s kibbles. All of our food storage containers are BPA-free.

A good dry storage container should be sturdy, airtight, simple to clean, and easy to scoop or pour from.There are a range of vacuum-sealing containers out there, like the popular OXO Pop containers, which have a lid that pulls air out of the container as it seals. These would seem like the obvious choice for an airtight container, but we found enough complaints about leaks and moth infestations in Amazon reviews (and in a post on the Kitchn) to be skeptical. We did choose to test some of the best-rated vacuum-sealing models as well as models with snap-on lids, but ultimately found them to be no more airtight (and in fact, sometimes less airtight) than any other container.

Though testing glass containers wasn’t out of the question, we ultimately only tested plastic models. Since the European Food Safety Authority published a massive assessment of BPA in 2015, we’re not worried about any negative health effects from using plastic containers for dry storage which doesn’t involve heat or acid that might degrade the material. If you’re uncertain, our guide to food storage containers has more on choosing between plastic and glass. In the case of dry storage, glass tends to be heavier and can break easily, which makes pouring a full container or pulling it from a high shelf risky. The glass containers on the market are often more decorative than practical, and only come in smaller sizes meant for countertop display. All the experts we spoke to did recommend some version of a basic canning jar for its tight seal. But we chose not to test any jars because they don’t stack, their opening is often too narrow to scoop from, and the larger sizes are unwieldy to pour.

“You want the container to seal tightly,” says Sarah Carey, the editorial director of food and entertaining for Martha Stewart Living, and our other two experts agree. An airtight seal is important if you want to protect cereal or snacks from staleness or keep brown sugar or tender raisins from turning rock hard. Even certain grains will keep better and longer if kept in a dry, sealed container. Also, says Carey, she wants something that’s “airtight enough that we feel like things won’t get in there.” Pests, particularly pantry moths, can be a real problem. They can squeeze through surprisingly small spaces, multiply rapidly, and as Maria Speck, author of Ancient Grains for Modern Meals points out, they’re occasionally hiding in store-bought bags of grain or flour. “I’ve heard from so many people about how their cabinets are now infested,” she says. But if you make a habit of transferring all dry goods to containers with secure lids, those tiny stowaways can’t get out of control.

Without a good set of dry storage containers, a kitchen pantry can quickly get out of control.If you regularly buy ingredients in bulk, a set of storage containers is essential. The paper or plastic bags you fill up at the grocery store are no place to keep dry ingredients: they tear easily, are difficult to pour from, and pile up messily on the shelf. Especially if you buy things in large quantities, you’ll want storage containers to keep those ingredients organized and fresh over a long period of time. If you already have a set of containers for bulk ingredients but find they don’t seal well or fit easily in cabinets, you also may want to upgrade.

Stacking was also easy because all of the Rubbermaid modular containers have the same rectangular shape, no matter what their capacity. Other models, like the Click Clack containers, shrink their footprint with capacity. Or, like Lock & Lock Rectangular Food Containers, they come in a dizzying array of lengths and widths, so you can only stack like with like. That kind of variety not only makes organizing more difficult, it can also leave you scrambling to find the right size lid. With the Rubbermaid modular containers, one lid fits all sizes.

Rubbermaid’s modular containers were one of only a few models we tested to also include measurements—in both cups and liters—marked on the outside.Stacking the Rubbermaid modular containers was easy. A high rim around the lid keeps containers from sliding around on top of one another, so that the stack stays firmly upright. While everything we tried was technically stackable, containers like the Oggi Acrylic Canisters had a completely smooth lid, with nothing to keep the top container from sliding off the bottom at the slightest disturbance.

Rubbermaid’s modular containers are completely dishwasher safe. They are also as simple in design as possible: no multi-piece vacuum lids to disassemble, no locking clips like the Sistema Klip It Containers, no top-heavy, awkward, hinged lids like on the Oggi canisters. Instead, the lids simply snap on. Best of all, the lids are interchangeable between the different-sized containers. That means no scrambling the right lid amidst a jumble of similar-but-not-quite-the-same options, as we had to do with containers like the OXOs.
