Like any newlywed I had registered for all the same kitchen things. I was so excited to get my own set of canisters in Cobalt Blue. Little did I know they didn’t work.
My hand and the measuring cup didn’t fit in the top. By the time I got both out half the sugar had fallen out and my measurement was wrong. Plus some sugar had fallen on the countertop which meant cleaning it up. I started leaving the sugar and flour in big plastic containers in the pantry, never using the pretty ones on the counter.
If you know me you know I like things to work. I want to use them and if I don’t and it just takes up space then out it goes. Beauty is just a bonus when something needs to get done. And sometimes the cookies just need to get done! So I tossed them.
After I got over the guilt I finally figured out what I really wanted. THESE!
I love them. They work great. They are huge and easy to use. I can leave a 2 cup measuring scoop in each one. I can open the latch with one hand, scoop without spilling, and close it again. I know immediately when I am running low and each one holds at least a 4-5 lb bag or more of each item. They even look nice on the countertop.
