Kitchen canisters have a long tradition and should help to keep food fresh and protected from vermin. This is reminiscent of the nursery rhyme about the miller boy who “lived alone and about all the bread and cheese he had on Regal.” You don’t have to “go to London to buy a wife” (a little wrong quote there ), with beautiful, decorative kitchen canister sets, most of the sets listed below come with rubber gaskets or gaskets to keep your food safe.
Memories of grandma’s kitchen
Canisters don’t just protect food. You set the tone for your kitchen. Whether you’re a tall teenager, a twenty year old, or a grandmother with a group of grandchildren, colorful canisters make a charming statement in your kitchen – one that leaves a lasting impression that will stay with friends and family. “Where did mom keep the chocolate chip cookies?” “Oh, right there in that big blue house, next to the tea and sugar.” While there may not be as strong and olfactory memories, visual associations linger long after the canisters disappear.
Nobody loves mealworms in cornmeal or oat bugs in grain – unless it’s the worms or the beetles. A sturdy canister with a rubber seal can help keep the staples secure or extend the life of baked goods such as biscuits. Canisters can be available in different materials or designs. It can be ceramic, stoneware or metal, which is reminiscent of a specific mouse. “I complain bitterly … the bread bin is made of pewter, I can’t get in.” Such robust materials and a robust seal are just the thing for your kitchen utensils.
While not recommended for use in the microwave or considered dishwasher safe, most canisters are easy to hand wash and dry. They usually don’t need to be cleaned frequently. In fact, a damp cloth over the outside is often enough for a full annual cleaning. Decorative kitchen container sets, such as those listed below, can complement a kitchen theme or be the focal point from which to develop your kitchen décor. Its light finish is reminiscent of milk and cookies on the kitchen table or of measuring sugar, flour or salt for favorite recipes. Both practical and beautiful, they can set the tone for your kitchen – the heart of your home. Below is a selection for your consideration.
