Choosing A Ceramic Canister

Choosing a ceramic canister or canister set should not be a difficult decision. However, there are couple of things you need to consider before you buy one or more canisters or sets of canisters.

First, are you going to house the bulk ingredients usually kept in canisters in the new ceramic canister set? Part of the flour, sugar, coffee and tea in a kitchen used to be stored in the canisters on the counter because these items were bought in bulk, and it was easier to cook if a small portion was available on the counter when needed, instead of having to trek to the pantry to get them. Now, since we buy these items in much smaller quantities, chances are the canister you buy will hold the entire purchase quantity. However, if you plan to store these materials in the new canisters, you must get ones that seal tightly, to keep moisture and bugs (gasp!) out of contents until you need them to cook. Look for ceramic canisters with tight seals.

You can get a ceramic canister set in the shape of your favorite animals or birds. There are sets in the shapes of fruits or vegetables, most suitable for a kitchen. You can get canister sets themed for car lovers or city dwellers. There are also canisters with a modern look, such as different geometric shapes in a single, bright color. The range of these wonderful storage vessels is enormous. Without trying, you may soon find yourself the owner of more then one set, and the counter lined with imaginative shapes and designs.

The primary decision is buying a ceramic canister set is whether they will be used as originally intended, or to store something else, packaged or loose. Once you know that, then your choices can be narrowed to your kitchen design and taste.
