Pros: Handy and Beautiful Ceramic Storage
My husband and I both love the color blue. Every room in our home has some sort of blue accent including our kitchen. We purchased the Oggi 4-pc Canister Set (Cobalt Blue) because it easily matched our kitchen accessories. We needed the set to store our most used dry food products, sugar, coffee, black tea, and earl grey tea. Normally, one may use the larger canister for flour, however, I choose to store my flour in the freezer.
The set comes with four different sizes and are made of heavy ceramic. The containers are really an attractive modern looking set featuring one of my favorite colors, blue!
Small: The small canister holds four measured cups of dry food staples. ( Earl Grey tea bags are stored in mine.)
Small/medium: This canister holds six cups of dry food staples. ( I store my dry coffee beans in this one.)
Medium: This one holds seven cups of dry food staples. ( I use this one for black tea bags.)
Large: This one is a nice size and holds eight cups. ( I store sugar in mine.)
The canisters each have a rubber seal air tight lid and close utilizing a hinged clamp. This keeps the food products dry yet easy to open. You simply lift the handle of the clamp and the canister pops open. To close, you shut the lid and push the clamp down, this seals the canister.
Each canister also comes with an attached stainless steel spoon. The spoons on mine are tablespoon size. These are handy for measuring the coffee and sugar I use for my morning caffeine fix.
These canisters are made of high quality ceramics. However, for cleaning, I recommend not using the dishwasher because it could damage the rubber seal. I wash mine in the kitchen sink, using a mild dish soap and warm water. I rinse the canisters thoroughly and air dry on my dish rack. This will keep the canisters like new for a longer period of time and will reduce chance of chipping the cobalt blue ceramic material.
My Final Thoughts
Overall, I highly recommend the Oggi 4-pc Canister Set (Cobalt Blue) it has been a wonderfully attractive storage solution in our kitchen. The canisters are airtight and that is important for dry food storage. With the addition of the handy spoons on each canister, this set is a real winner! The set is also available in black or white. Therefore, there is bound to be a color that would look nice in anyone?s kitchen.
