…that collapse for easy storage
The smart design of these adjustable containers allows them to flatten into 1-inch-thick disks, saving room in your cupboards.

Tupperware “flat-out” canisters, from $15 for a set of three, at Tupperware.com.

…that resist stains 
We use these sturdy containers for anything from salad dressings to sauces; they won’t stain or retain odors.

Lexan square screwtop containers, from $1.73 at Nalgene-outdoor.com.

…that pump out air
Our brown sugar stays moist and cereals stay crisp in this canister. There’s a pump in its lid that vacuum- seals the container, removing air to keep food fresher.

Creative Gear Pump-n-Store canisters, from $12.95 at SurLaTable.com.

…that both measure and store
his glass pitcher comes with a lid, so it functions not only as a measuring tool but as a storage vessel as well. It’s ideal for measuring liquids ahead or for storing batters.

3-cup measuring jug with lid, $7.99 at containerstore.com.

…that snap securely shut
These stackable containers are ubiquitous in the Fine Cooking test kitchen. Clips lock the lids tightly in place, but they’re still easy to open and close.

Click Clack containers, from $7.50 at Cooking.com.

…that won’t lose their lids
The lids for these ceramic bowls are never hard to find: they hook to the bowls’ rims. We like that the lids snap off, though, making them easy to clean.

Bowls with removable hook-top lids, from $7.99 at TheContainerStore.com.
