What types of dry food dispensers are there?

One main way to distinguish between types of food dispensers is the number of different types of foods they dispense.

You'll also want to consider the type of lid you use for your dry food dispenser, as some work well with tiny pieces of food, and others are better for large (for example, cereal vs. larger cookies). The main models are:

Single Canister Cereal Dispenser
Topper Cylinder Dry Food Dispenser
Screw Off Lid Handle Dry Food Dispenser
Open Dry Food Dispenser
Single Flip Top Food Dispenser
Slim Flip Top Food Dispenser

Dry food dispensers come in multiple different types of materials, including plastic, wood, glass and steel. Look to match your kitchen decor with your food dispensers: if you're going for a natural look, wood will be beautiful, and steel will match an industrially decorated kitchen very well.

However, plastic and glass food dispensers have one clear advantage - that is, that they're transparent! You won't have to bother with labels if you decide to invest in a clear container, as you'll be able to see what is inside at all times.

What styles of dry food dispensers are there?

Dry food dispensers come in many different forms, from more utilitarian versions which are great for pantry storage or minimalist kitchens to more fun and funky styles for a unique aesthetic. For example, you could consider purchasing cereal dispensers in the shape of candy machines for a retro look, or you could purchase a dispenser in the shape of a football to help add cheer to your next game night.

Dry food dispensers can make your life much easier and add variety to your kitchen. Consider this an opportunity to go for something artistic, or tone down the busyness in your kitchen with a sleek wooden number. Either way, you can relax knowing that your mealtimes are going to be much more streamlined from here on out.
