Airtight canisters are a must in any kitchen as they help keep ingredients fresh much longer.
If you don’t put the flour in an airtight canister, it can lose quality, but worst of all, it will attract pantry moths, a most unwelcome infestation that can swarm like an Alfred Hitchcock movie in a few days and carry away your children and pets. You need a canister for flour, sugar, brown sugar, all of your rices, coffee, and tea.
One of our favorites is the heavy duty 7-piece BPA free plastic container set from Shazo featuring chalkboard labels for keeping track of what’s in the containers as well as interchangeable easy lock lids.
