I adore kitchen canister sets. There is something so nostalgic about displaying a set of canisters on your kitchen countertop. Canisters are not only functional by keeping food fresh, they can add visual interest to an otherwise boring space. The variety of styles, colors and shapes seem to be endless making it easy to find a set that reflects your kitchen style.
I recently went on the hunt for my perfect canister set (it was tough) and compiled a list of my favorites. I had a couple attributes on my wish list when narrowing down my top favorites. The canisters needed to: have clean design lines, a classic style and be affordably priced. I think I found a group that met all of the requirements and will make a great investment to stand the test of time. If not, they will still look adorable on my counter. Enjoy!

Tips for keeping stored dry food
- Make sure you rotate your dry goods. Date all foods and food containers. Stored foods cannot get any better than what originally went in, but they can certainly get worse. If you don’t know how old it is — when in doubt, throw it out!
- Keep stored foods cool, dry and well ventilated. The temperature should be between 50°F and 70°F. Also, make sure it’s out of direct sunlight. Sunlight promotes oxidation and the subsequent loss of the food’s nutritional value and quality
- Make sure your goods are stored in a low humidity area. Most canisters have a rubber or plastic seal to keep humidity out to help food stay fresher, longer.
