Open packages are extremely susceptible to moisture and pests. Storage cans in various shapes, sizes and materials help in this regard. Used properly, in cabinets and refrigerators, they can keep food edible longer. In addition, storage containers provide protection from other odors.


By choosing storage can sets, you are in possession of many of the same cans and can stack them to save space. They interlock perfectly due to the same design and take up little space.

Types of use of the storage tins and storage jars
1. Storage tin for freshness | 2. Storage tin for order | 3. Storage tin as a mobile companion | 4. Storage jar for freezing and heating

Mobile companion

Food storage cans are a mobile companion for work or school. Bread and vegetables can be transported easily. You can take the previous day's dinner with you with the right storage can. Waterproof closures protect your bag from leaking liquid.


Want to freeze seasonal produce so you can access it throughout the year? Make sure your storage cans are freezer safe. Stainless steel cans have very good cooling properties and can withstand the low temperatures.


Heat-resistant storage containers are convenient to use. You do not have to transfer food to be reheated to another plate. Put the storage box directly into the
Microwave to heat the food. Glass is ideal for this purpose.

3. Sizes and storage methods

Storage tins are not only available in different materials - the size is important when choosing a food storage tin. At Connox you will find both small and large storage tins.

Long-lasting foods such as spaghetti and pasta can be stored attractively in narrow, tall storage jars. Flour and sugar do well in round, tall jars. A large jar with plenty of volume is ideal for cornflakes. Small jars are especially good for spices and seeds, such as sesame or chia.

Interior design expert Kerstin Reilemann profile picture "Cans with chalkboard foil are wonderful for labeling - it's easy to see inside glass storage jars. For example, if you want to store storage jars next to each other in deep drawers, lids made of transparent material make sense." - Kerstin, interior design expert

Coarser foods like finely decorated pastries belong in shallower storage containers. For the refrigerator, you need fresh food storage containers that take up little space and are easy to clean. This is where you store fresh food safely and in a space-saving manner.

Think beforehand about the quantity, the food and where it will be stored.
Grain products store well in ceramic containers with wooden or cork lids. For dry goods, be sure to seal them airtight. Rubber seals protect against
leakage and from external influences.

4. Beautiful storage - the design also matters

Storage tins are mainly there for one purpose - to store food and keep it fresh. Properly placed, they are a beautiful accessory.

With glass you have the possibility to decorate with the contents. Combined with a lid made of cork or wood, the result is a harmonious overall picture.
Storage boxes made of metal reveal little of their contents, but impress with their countless design options.

Jars and tins with screw tops or swing tops are reminiscent of alarm jars and have a nostalgic charm. They fit especially well in country kitchens. They are also suitable as a style break in a modern cooking landscape. Design the room with the help of storage jars and give it that certain charm. Pick up colors and materials from your kitchen.

Whether Scandinavian, vintage country style or practical-modern - storage boxes are available for every style and fit into any home.

5. Sustainability theme

We all come into contact with the topic of sustainability and environmental awareness. Why not start in your own kitchen? Instead of using cling film or aluminum foil, why not reach for a storage can? Food stays fresh there longer and is easy to transport.
You can also shop at unpackaged stores without having to resort to plastic packaging.
