Fresh food storage
Fresh food is safe food. Good food storage habits save your household budget too. Clever container sizes and stacking sets help create space in your fridge, increasing air circulation for even better freshness and lower energy consumption.
Well-organised leftover food storage saves cooking time for busy households. Cooking and storing cooked food is easy when containers can go from freezer to microwave, to table to fridge. The Décor and Pyrex collections are freezer and microwave safe and have steam-release vents that allow cooking then airtight sealing, with safe handling when hot.
Square and rectangular containers take up less space than round ones, saving room in cupboards and in the fridge.
It’s important to treat leftovers with care so that cooked food keeps well for a few days. Prepared food should be refrigerated within an hour or two, depending on the ambient temperature. Always cool leftovers before refrigerating them. Take care not to use utensils that have handled raw meat when storing cooked food away as you could contaminate it and cause food poisoning.
Make it a habit to rotate leftovers in the freezer and fridge so your efforts to save on future cooking time are not wasted.
Cereals and dry food storage
A well-organised pantry avoids waste and saves money on dry food and snack storage with good habits and easy display. Rotate containers so older items are at the front and check use-by dates regularly. Clear containers that show quantities easily alert you when supplies are low. Add labels with use-by dates and you’ll have the perfect, waste-free pantry.
Take dry food out of its packaging and transfer it to containers straight away to increase its lifespan and freshness. Slim, clear, modular and stackable containers in lots of sizes keep all your ingredients and supplies in sight. Clear lids are perfect for containers stored low and viewed from the top or kept in drawers, because you can see what’s inside without lifting or opening them.
Many people choose containers by their style of lid when organising pantry or fridge space. Multi-use airtight containers have lids with steam release vents; the lids on the Snapware Mods range are easy for kids to seal properly; the clear top lids on Rosti Storers are hard to beat for easy content viewing and there are lids designed to stack and save shelf space.
