1. Use of the storage can


Open packages are extremely susceptible to moisture and pests. Storage cans in various shapes, sizes and materials help here. Used correctly, in cupboards and refrigerators, they can make food edible for longer. Storage containers also offer protection against other odours.


By choosing stock can sets, you have many of the same cans and can stack them in a space-saving way. Due to the same design, they fit together perfectly and take up very little space.

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

Mobile companion

Fresh food cans are a mobile companion for work or school. Bread and vegetables can be easily transported. You can take the dinner from the day before with the right storage tin. Watertight closures protect your bag from leaking liquids.


Do you want to freeze seasonal products so that you can access them throughout the year? Make sure that the storage tins are suitable for freezing. Stainless steel cans have very good cooling properties and withstand the low temperatures.


Heat resistant storage tanks are practical to use. You do not have to transfer food to be heated to another plate. Place the storage box directly in the
Microwave to heat up the food. Glass is ideal for this.

Stock cans are not only available in different materials - the size is important when choosing the perishables can. At Connox you will find both small and large storage cans.

Long-lasting foods such as spaghetti and noodles can be stored nicely in narrow, tall storage jars. Flour and sugar are well kept in round, tall glasses. A large tin with plenty of volume is ideal for cornflakes. Small cans are particularly suitable for spices and seeds, such as sesame or chia.

If you want to store the storage jars next to each other in deep drawers, for example, lids made of transparent material make sense. - Kerstin, interior design expert

Coarser foods such as finely decorated pastries belong in flatter storage containers. For the refrigerator, you need food storage containers that take up little space and are easy to clean. Here you can store fresh food safely and space-savingly.

Think beforehand what quantity, what food and where it will be stored.
Grain products can be stored well in ceramic containers with wooden or cork lids. When storing dry goods, make sure that you seal them airtight. Rubber seals protect against
leakage and from external influences.

4. Beautiful stockpiling - design is also important

Storage cans are mainly there for one purpose - storing food and keeping it fresh. Placed correctly they are a nice 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 jars made of metal reveal little of their contents, but they captivate with their countless design possibilities.

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

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

5. Sustainability issue

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 aluminium foil, why not reach for the storage tin? The food stays fresh there longer and is easy to transport.
You can also shop in unpacked shops without having to resort to plastic packaging.

6. Conclusion - this is what you should bear in mind when buying storage cans and storage jars

  • Think about what you want to use the storage can for and use these criteria to select the right one.
  • Compare the main advantages and disadvantages of the materials and weigh up which ones make the most sense for you.
  • Should the storage jars also look good visually? Choose one that looks particularly classy.
  • Use storage jars to buy food without plastic waste.
