Baking Ingredient Pantry Storage Containers

orlybabe | May 3, 202107:49 AM     20

Hi everyone! I am moving into a new apartment soon and am planning the food storage containers. I originally wanted to get Oxo Pop Containers, seemed to be the most widely recommended and popular, but then I saw a post on their site about the new design that came out this year (https://www.oxo.com/blog/behind-the-s...) that had a crap load of bad comments, about how the lid is no longer airtight and so on.

Then I found this on NY Times - https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/re... and they strongly recommend the Rubbermaid Brilliance pantry containers over Oxo and other brands. I like the look of them too, more sleek n modern than Oxo. But they lack the accessories Oxo has like the scoops and brown sugar disk. What are your thoughts?

Second question, I got to thinking about getting the Rubbermaid set instead and buying some separate scoops. Problem is, is it ok to leave a BPA-free plastic scoop inside the container, sitting in the flour / sugar? Will it degrade the flour?

Thanks heaps!
