Coffee, tea or water – how to create a beautiful drink station
by Pia Seidel
A well-organized kitchen not only makes cooking easier, but also saves time and effort. With storage containers you can keep food fresh, save space and maintain order. There are numerous types of food storage containers made of many different materials that perfectly fit your needs.
- Classic plastic food storage containers are lightweight, sturdy and also suitable for the microwave or freezer. They are ideal for dry foods like pasta, rice or cereal.
- For a more eco-friendly option, glass storage jars are a great choice. Not only are they sustainable, but they are also neutral in taste and easy to clean. Not only will your food stay fresh, but it will also retain its natural flavor.
- Potatoes, onions and garlic love dark and dry storage. For this purpose, there are specially suitable tins and pots made of ceramic or metal, where they are stored safely and do not rot so quickly.
- Pastry tins are perfect for storing your freshly baked goodies like cookies, cakes or bread. Not only do they protect against moisture, but they also protect against unwanted odors that could affect the flavor of your baked goods.
- Vacuum containers offer another way to keep food fresh longer. By removing the air, oxidation is reduced and shelf life is extended. Ideal for delicate foods like coffee beans or spices.
- Tea boxes protect your tea from light, moisture and unwanted odors. They are often made of metal, wood or high-quality plastic. These materials provide a good seal to preserve the flavors and aromas of the tea. A tea box with dividers is especially useful if you want to store different types of tea together without their flavors mixing.
When buying storage boxes, make sure they have a good seal to keep your food safe from moisture, air and food moths. It's also important to inspect your storage cans regularly to make sure they're intact and don't have any cracks or damage that could allow moths access. In addition, you should thoroughly inspect the food for moth traces before storing it to prevent possible contamination.
