We're moving to a new house in two weeks and I am using this as an opportunity to upgrade my food storage containers.   I am a home baker and don't buy in bulk.  Just looking for something to keep flour, sugars, etc bug free and fresh and to keep my cabinets organized.  There are so many different options on the market - do any of you have any you love that you can recommend?  Thanks!!

I love, and will not use any 'food' storage containers that are not glass. I have both the pyrex sets and rubbermaid. They are both great. But these are more for leftovers.

For flours, sugars, etc -- you cant go wrong with bormioli.

I use a lot of cambro.  I purchase them at stores like Smart and Final, Cash and Carry, restaurant supply stores, or buy online.  I use cambro containers for storage, food prep, and yeast dough rising and fermenting.

For my flours and granulated sugars, I like OXO POP canisters; they are air tight, easy to open/close, wide opening makes it easy scoop product out.  They are a bit pricy, but I've had some for 15 -plus years.

I prefer the clear hard polycarbonate because it doesn't absorb odors--not to mention you can see what's inside:)
