Food storage ~ OXO POP containers and giveaway


For someone who spends a lot of time in my kitchen, I find that having organised cupboards for the ingredients is really important. It is crucial that foods such as grains, spices, flours, cereals  and nuts should always be stored in a cool place in air tight containers once they are opened to retain their freshness.


For storage solution , I love the oxo pop range containers they come in an  assortment of sizes and are great as they also stack one on top of the other.Organising your pantry will be a breeze with these see through containers.



The Containers have a unique push-button mechanism that creates an airtight seal  so that the food remains fresh.The button also serves as a handle to lift off the lid. The POP Containers are available in 12 different sizes so they are perfect for many types of ingredients and will fit into the smallest of storage spaces. All POP containers are plastic and are BPA Free. The Oxo pop containers are available in all well know department as well as online from OXO


I would like to thank OXO for sending me some containers for my kitchen, , they have been really kind and have agreed to will send one citrusspice reader 4 x OXO POP 0.5l containers as a prize.
