Designer Advice:

This set of three colored glass containers would look right at home in a white or off-white kitchen. The royal blue containers add a dramatic pop against a Carrera backsplash and on an off-white subtly patterned countertop. If you want to make a bold statement in your kitchen, paint your lower cabinets in a similar color. Consider adding Delft Blue or Blue Willow patterns if you want a less bold look.

Rose Colored Glass Kitchen Canisters

Rose Colored Glass Kitchen Canisters

The pretty rose color on this three-piece set of colored glass jars with lids shows off the delicate embossing on the jars. Each lid has a gasket seal to help keep stored foods air-tight and fresh. The small, medium and large canisters can hold 33, 53.5, and 80 oz, respectively.

Designer Advice:

While these three colored glass containers work well in the kitchen, this set also works well in other areas of your home. The wide jar openings let you easily access cotton pads or swabs in the bathroom or craft supplies in an office. The rose-colored glass will tint whatever is in the container, so you can play with different colored items to create a unique look.

Buying Guide

The items that normally go in glass kitchen canisters are usually foodstuff that needs to remain fresher for longer and items that you need easy access to. However, canisters are most often used to store pantry foods like baking ingredients, spices, pasta, and cereal.

Most people love storing their coffee beans, dried beans and dried fruit in glass canisters. These colored glass kitchen canisters allow you to organize and beautify your counter and cupboard space as well.

Many colored glass kitchen canisters can be cleaned in the dishwasher, as well as being safe to use in the microwave. Since spices, pasta, cereal, and baking ingredients are the most common items these canisters are filled with, they must be regularly cleaned at high temperatures to kill bacteria and maintain optimum hygiene.

When placing your canisters in the dishwasher, handle them with extra care. The fact that they are made from glass means they are extra fragile, so it’s important you load them into the dishwasher’s top rack, using glass holders if your dishwasher has them. Remove them gently to avoid breakage.
