Buying the right food storage container - A guide.
Food waste is a big problem in our society. To keep food fresh longer and avoid waste, you can turn to food storage cans. But how do you find the right food storage container for your needs? In this guide, you'll learn what you should look out for and what different types of food storage cans there are.
Freshness can size and capacity
When choosing a size for a food storage can, you should be guided by the amount of food you want to store. A can that is too small will result in the food not fitting completely inside or being squeezed tightly together, which can affect shelf life. A can that is too large, on the other hand, will take up an unnecessary amount of space in the refrigerator or kitchen and may result in more plastic or other materials being used. So it's important to think carefully about how much space you have for the can and the amount of food you want to store in it in order to choose the right size.
Examples of different sizes:
Size | Dimensions (LxWxH) | Capacity
- Small | 10x10x5 cm | 200 ml
- Medium | 15x15x8 cm | 750 ml
- Big | 20x20x10 cm | 1,5 Liter
- Extra big | 25x25x15 cm | 3 Liter
Different materials for storage tins
Food storage cans come in many different materials. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages that you should consider when choosing the right food storage can. Below we present the most common materials for food storage cans and explain their advantages and disadvantages.
Plastic is the most commonly used material for food storage containers. It is lightweight, durable and often dishwasher safe. Plastic food storage cans come in many sizes and shapes and are often inexpensive. However, one disadvantage of plastic is that it is not very environmentally friendly, and it can also be difficult to clean the cans completely if they have been filled with greasy or highly flavored foods.
Glass fresh food containers are very durable and can also be used in the microwave. They are often more environmentally friendly than plastic because they are recyclable. Another advantage of glass is that it does not absorb odors or flavors, so food stays fresh longer. However, one disadvantage of glass is that it is heavier and more fragile than plastic, so it can be more difficult to transport.
Metal fresh food tins are usually made of stainless steel and are very sturdy. They can usually also be cleaned in the dishwasher. An advantage of metal is that it does not absorb odors or flavors and is very durable. However, a disadvantage of metal is that it is heavier and more expensive than plastic or glass.
Beeswax wipesAn environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fresh food tins are beeswax wipes. These wipes are made of cotton and beeswax and can be wrapped around food to keep it fresh. They are reusable and biodegradable. However, one disadvantage of beeswax wipes is that they are not suitable for all foods and often do not last as long as traditional fresh food cans.
When choosing a material for food storage cans, it is important to weigh the various advantages and disadvantages of each material. Plastic is often cheap and lightweight, but not particularly environmentally friendly. Glass is durable and environmentally friendly, but heavier and more fragile. Metal is sturdy and durable, but more expensive. Beeswax wipes are an eco-friendly alternative, but not suitable for all foods. So think carefully about which features are most important for your needs to choose the right food storage container.
What is the locking mechanism?
Storage tins are among the most important kitchen utensils, as they help to keep food fresh for longer and facilitate the storage of supplies. But what closure systems are actually available for storage tins?
A frequently used variant is the hinged closure. Here, the lid is simply folded onto the container and securely closed by a click mechanism. The flip-top closure is easy to handle and enables quick opening and closing. Another option are screw caps, where the lid is screwed onto the thread of the storage can. This closure mechanism is particularly secure and guarantees an absolutely airtight seal. However, opening and closing can sometimes be a bit tedious.
Another type of closure is the swing stopper. Here, the lid is pressed onto the container by a clip and secured. This variant not only looks attractive, but is also very practical, as it is easy to open and close. However, it is not as airtight as a screw cap. Twist-on lids are also an option. In this case, the lid is simply placed on the container thread and secured by turning it. This type of closure is easy to use, but not as secure as a screw cap or swing top.
There are many other variants such as clamp closures or snap closures. Which closure system is best depends primarily on the type of food and the intended use. For sensitive foods such as flour or coffee, for example, a screw cap or swing stopper is recommended. For other foods such as fruit or vegetables, hinged closures or twist-off closures are perfectly adequate. Choosing the right closure system for storage cans depends on many factors. It is therefore important to know the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of closure and to choose according to the intended use.
Special functions for food storage containers
Food storage containers are available in many different designs and with numerous special functions. These can not only facilitate the storage of food, but also extend the shelf life of the products. Below are some of the most common functions of fresh food storage cans.
Stapelbarkeit: Viele Frischhaltedosen sind so konzipiert, dass sie platzsparend aufeinander gestapelt werden können. Dies spart nicht nur Platz im Küchenschrank, sondern erleichtert auch die Organisation der Vorräte.
Microwaveable: Some food storage containers can also be used in the microwave. These are usually made of heat-resistant material such as glass or special plastic and have a steam valve function.
Vacuum function: A vacuum function allows fresh food cans to remove air and moisture from the can, which extends the shelf life of the food.
Airtight closure: An airtight closure prevents air and moisture from entering the fresh food container. This is particularly important for foods such as bread, cookies or potato chips.
Modular system: A modular system makes it possible to connect several food storage containers to save space and facilitate organization.
Stacking function: A stacking function ensures that several food storage containers can be stacked on top of each other to save space. This maintains an overview of the supplies and saves space.
Labeling field: Some food storage containers have a labeling field on which the contents can be noted. This makes it easier to quickly find the food you are looking for and prevents mix-ups.
Foldable: Foldable food storage containers save space when not in use and are ideal for travel or work.
Ice cube function: Some food storage containers have a special ice cube function that allows ice cubes to be produced in them. This is especially convenient for preparing drinks or chilling food.
Separate compartment: Some fresh food cans have a separate compartment that is either housed in the same can or stored separately. Here, for example, dressings or sauces can be stored without coming into contact with other food.
The selection of food storage containers with special functions is large and can vary depending on individual needs. It's worth trying out different models and seeing which functions appeal to you the most.
