7 Best Kitchen Storage Containers in India in 2021 Reviews


1. Cello Checkers Plastic PET Canister Set Reviews

Cello Checkers Plastic PET Canister Set, 18 Pieces, Clear

1st product in our today’s review of Best Kitchen Storage Containers in India in 2021 is from one of the Best Kitchen Storage Brands in India, Cello.

Brands like Cello and Milton do not require any kind of introduction in the Indian market. Their products are not only affordable, but they are also of genuine quality.

It will not be wrong to claim that this container set from Cello will be found in the majority of the Indian kitchens, thanks to its premium quality. The Cello canister set comes in a pack of 18 containers.

All these 18 storage containers are made from PET plastic. In very simple words, PET containers are BPA free and do not pose any health risk.

Now speaking about the storage containers in this set, you will get 18 containers where:

  • 6 containers will have a capacity of 1,200 ml
  • Other 6 containers will have a capacity of 650 ml
  • Last 6 containers with a capacity of 300 ml each

So, in total the capacity of this canister set is 12.9 litres. The good thing is you will have a different range of containers due to their different sizes for small, medium and large food items.

All the 18 containers have an airtight seal which is great to lock in the freshness and flavour of your food. Since these are stackable containers, you can save more space in the kitchen by placing them on top of one another.

With a see through design, you will know what is inside the container without having to open it. The containers do not leave any kind of smell as they are all odourless and also shatterproof.

What I also liked about this canister set is there is no sticker on the containers which sometimes look flimsy, instead the name Cello has been embossed on top of the lid, which looks neat and thoughtful.

The containers have a chequered design which adds durability to the design and more strength. The only thing which is missing from these containers is the compatibility with microwave.

In terms of quality, performance and reviews, this canister set from Cello Checkers is definitely one of the Best Kitchen Storage Containers in India under 600 rupees in 2021.

2. Amazon Brand – Solimo Checkered Jar Set of 18 Reviews

Amazon Brand - Solimo Checkered Jar Set of 18

Solimo is Amazon’s own in-house brand which specialises in affordable home and kitchen products with a very good quality. In fact, Amazon’s Solimo is amongst the Best Kitchen Storage Container Brands in India, along with Milton and Cello.

Speaking about the storage containers in this set, you will get 18 airtight containers where:

  • 6 containers have a capacity of 1,000 ml
  • 6 containers have a capacity of 500 ml
  • Last 6 containers have a capacity of 200 ml each

The total capacity of these containers is 10.2 litres and due to the different sizes of the containers, you will have a lot more flexibility in the kitchen.

All the containers are airtight and made from BPA free plastic. You won’t have to worry about odours or smells as these containers are 100% odourless.

The exterior of these containers have a ribbed finish which provides a very firm and strong grip.

What I really liked about this set is that storing the jars is very easy thanks to its nesting structure which allows you to store them one inside the other when empty, ideal to free up kitchen pantry space.

Opening the lid is quite easy as it needs only one twist of a hand to close. In terms of colours, you get 3 choices amongst Red, Maroon or Blue, of course this depends on the availability too.

Similar to Cello canister set, this one from Solimo is not compatible with Microwave either, so keep that in mind while you make a decision.

Rest everything is perfect with this kitchen storage set from Amazon and that is why it is included in the list of Best Plastic Containers for Kitchen in India in 2021.

3. Milton Vitro Plastic Jar Set Reviews

Milton Vitro Plastic Jar Set, 18- Pieces, Transparent

After Cello and Amazon’s Solimo, Milton is another best kitchen storage containers brands in India. Milton has been operating since 1972 and all of us have used Milton products at one point of time in our lives, be it school, college or office.

In this plastic container set from Milton, you get 18 airtight containers where:

  • 6 containers have a capacity of 1,240 ml
  • 6 containers have a capacity of 665 ml
  • Last 6 containers have a capacity of 270 ml each

In terms of total capacity, this container set from Milton is better than Amazon’s Solimo and Cello checkers as this one comes with a capacity of 13 litres overall.

However, just like the 1st two container sets you cannot microwave Milton’s containers. All the 18 containers are made from PET plastic, good from a safety point of view.

The food contents in these containers will maintain its original texture as all the containers have an extremely effective airtight seal and they are leakproof too. You do not have to label the containers as these jars are see through and you will be able to see what is inside them.

The best thing about these containers is that they are literally unbreakable, so 10/10 from a durability standpoint. These are not just odourless jars, but you can also stack them on top of each other to save more space in the kitchen or in the cabinets.

The containers have a geometric design which is kind of appealing and elegant when you touch it. The thickness of the jars is also very impressive, which speaks a lot about the quality.

Milton as a brand can be trusted without thinking too much and this is why, you can give this container set a go at this affordable price.

4. Princeware Twister Combo Plastic Package Container Set Reviews

Princeware Twister Combo Plastic Package Container Set, 20-Pieces

Princeware is an Indian kitchen brand that exports to over 70 countries in the world. This container set from Princeware is special because of 2 reasons, which will discuss soon.

In this plastic container set from Princeware, you get 20 airtight containers where:

  • 2 containers have a capacity of 1.23 litres
  • 4 containers have a capacity of 1.35 litres
  • 4 containers have a capacity of 840 ml
  • 2 containers have a capacity of 715 ml
  • 4 containers have a capacity of 490 ml
  • 4 containers have a capacity of 230 ml

There are a couple of things that I liked about this kitchen container set from Princeware.

Firstly, if you look at all the 7 kitchen container sets, this one from Princeware has the highest capacity of 15.5 litres. This set comes with 6 different sizes which is going to be more than enough for all your kitchen storage needs.

Secondly, the first 3 kitchen container sets were not microwave compatible which is not the same with Princeware container set. You can put these containers into the microwave, but you will have to remove the lid which is still a decent workaround.

All these containers are made from food grade plastic. There is a twister lid on the top which allows you to easily open the container, when needed.

To save some kitchen space, you can either place these containers on top of one another or into one another, whichever works best for you.

Surprisingly, there were a few spoons for medium sized containers, which was kind of thoughtful. But, I feel spoons could have been given for the large containers. Also, the airtight quality was not very impressive.

If you are looking for kitchen containers with excellent capacity and microwave safe compatibility, you can go for this container set from Princeware.

Which Material is the Best for Kitchen Storage Containers

Which Material is the Best for Kitchen Storage Containers

Success of a kitchen storage container hugely depends on the type of material it is made from. The material of the containers will define the freshness of your food and how safe is your food within those containers. In India, the most common 5 types of material which are used to make kitchen storage container sets are:

  1. Plastic
  2. Stainless Steel
  3. Glass
  4. Ceramic
  5. Copper

We have also written a post on 5 Types of Food Storage Containers for Your Kitchen in 2021 (With Pros & Cons), you can check that out for a detailed overview on the types of material. In very simple words, it is very difficult to pick one material because every material from the above list has its own pros and cons.

Glass is usually a popular choice as it is very attractive, but it is expensive than plastic and is heavy too. Plastic is very affordable and is preferred by a lot of homemakers because of its flexibility. Steel on the other hand is extremely durable, but not only it is heavy, you cannot put a Stainless steel container in the microwave.

How to Choose the Best Kitchen Storage Containers

How to Choose the Best Kitchen Storage Containers

1. Material – When it comes to the kitchen storage containers, Glass and Plastic are the two most common choices. While you can use glass kitchen containers in the microwave as well, they tend to be prone to breakages. Glass containers are heavy as well, so not quite a perfect fit for portability. Plastic on the other hand is not only lightweight, but it is cheaper as well. However, while looking for the best plastic kitchen containers in India, make sure the plastic is made from BPA free material which is safe for human consumption. Most of the plastic containers are lightweight and you can use some of them in the microwave too.

2. Number of Containers – Depending on your own personal storage requirements, you will need to determine how many containers are you going to need in the set. Most of the container sets are available in a pack of 6 to 20 pieces. With the higher number of containers, you also get varieties in terms of different sizes.

3. Capacity of Containers – Along with the number of containers, you will also need to identify which size container do you mostly need. If you do not need a combination of small and medium containers, then going for a container set which comes with only large size jars makes more sense. For dry storage such as dal, rajma, choley, etc you will need a 1,000 ml kitchen container. Similarly, for sugar, salt or tealeaves, you can work with a small or a medium size container.

4. Stackable Containers – One of the most important benefit with a plastic kitchen container is that you can stack them on top of one another. This is important and valuable as you can save a lot of kitchen space like this in the cabinet or the countertop. Make sure the containers are stackable before you buy them. Some brands also manufacture containers that can be nested into one another when they are not being used.

5. Microwaveable Containers – This is one of the flaws with the plastic kitchen storage containers as most of them are not compatible with the microwave. So, if you need a kitchen storage container set that you can use with the microwave, ensure to read the product description. In this post, there are a few choices for microwaveable containers and you can choose one amongst Cutting Edge Modular Airtight Kitchen Storage Container Set and EMPORIUM Plastic Kitchen Jar.

6. See through Containers – There are a few designs where you cannot see what is inside the storage container. Steel containers are mostly like this and in my honest opinion, this is not a very thoughtful approach. You should be able to see what is inside the container without having to open the container each and every time. Glass and plastic containers offers a see through design.

7. Airtight Lids – One of the most important feature for a kitchen storage container to be successful is to have an airtight lid. Without the presence of airtight lids, the freshness of the food will not remain intact and you will soon have to replace your containers. The presence of an airtight lid also helps to retain the moisture of the food item and protect it from outside odours.

8. Ease of Cleaning – You should be able to clean the kitchen containers quite easily if they have a user friendly design and a wide mouth with no sharp edges. Some manufacturers also provide dishwasher compatible kitchen container sets, so do check that before buying a container set for your kitchen.

9. Price – This may not be the last thing, but it is an important checkpoint to know how much should a plastic kitchen container set cost you. All the container sets in today’s post are priced below 600 rupees, which is just the right price for plastic material. For 600 rupees, expect to get 15-20 containers made from plastic with airtight lids and leakproof design.

Pros and Cons of Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers

Pros and Cons of Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers

There have been numerous contradictory theories about the use of Plastic storage containers in the kitchen.

A lot of concerns have been raised towards the use of plastic in the storage containers. Having said this, as a buyer, you should know what kind of plastic is being used to make the storage container. To make this easy, when you are buying a plastic storage container, make sure it is made from one of these plastic types:

  1. Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
  2. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  3. Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
  4. Polypropylene (PP)

In comparison to glass containers, plastic containers are not only lightweight, but they are affordable too. Being lightweight, you can easily maneuver them from one place to another. Plastic containers are almost unbreakable and can be handled roughly on a day to day basis. This is good for families who have kids or pets in the house.

In terms of choices, you will have a dozen variety of plastic containers as they come in different shapes and forms. These containers are also versatile and you can use them for different purposes.

Having said this, plastic as a material has its own cons. One of the biggest disadvantage with plastic is that it is not an eco-friendly design. A majority of plastics end up in landfills where they will stay for hundreds of years, adding to an already sea of plastics

Another disadvantage of plastic containers is that you cannot use them in a microwave. Most of the plastic containers are not compatible with microwave and even the ones who are compatible with microwave, you will have to remove the lid.

Pros of Plastic Food Storage Containers:

  • Very Affordable
  • Extremely durable
  • Can be microwaved without the lid
  • Lightweight
  • Versatile and cost effective

Cons of Plastic Food Storage Containers:

  • Decomposition can last from 400-1000 years
  • Not biodegradable
  • Not sustainable in the long run

How to Clean Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers

How to Clean Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers

Cleaning plastic containers is usually not very difficult, in fact you can clean most of the plastic containers with the help of some lukewarm water, mild soap and a soft brush. But, this also depends on what you are storing inside the plastic container.

For example, containers which have leftover food and have been kept in the refrigerator for a while can be a mess to clean. These containers usually have hard stains and cleaning with a brush may not help. There are quite a few ways to remove stains from the plastic kitchen containers.

One of the most proven ways is to use Vinegar. You can use some white vinegar and drop a few teaspoons in the container after rinsing it with hot water. Now, leave the vinegar to show its effect on the plastic container.

The acidity of the vinegar will break down the stains in a closed environment. If you are short on vinegar, you can also use alcohol or hand sanitiser as a substitute solution.

Similar to vinegar, you can also use Baking soda as another effective solution to remove stains from the plastic container. You will need to make a paste solution of baking soda and water, the solution should be as thick as peanut butter.

Once you have a decent baking soda paste, apply the paste inside the container, but make sure the container is dry, otherwise the paste will not stick. Now, leave the paste for around an hour to show its results. After an hour, remove the lid and clear the container, which should be as good as new.

Lemon is also another effective way to remove stains from the plastic container. You will simply need to rub the container with the lemon juice and leave the container in the sun for a day or two. The effect of sunlight and lemon will remove discolouration and it will also kill bacteria.

Are Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers Safe to Use?

Are plastic storage container safe to use?

There is a variety of plastic that is used to create kitchen storage containers. Safety depends on the type of the plastic that has been utilised. So, next time when you are about to buy a plastic kitchen utensil, check out the bottom of the box and you will see a few numbers mentioned.

Are Plastic Kitchen Storage Containers Safe to Use?
Source: GreenSutra.in

There are 7 types of numbers that you will usually see on the container box. The number ranges from 1 to 7. Here is what these numbers mean and which one is safe.

  • Number 1: PETE also known as Polyethylene Terephthalate, safe
  • Number 2: HDPE also known as High Density Polyethylene, safe
  • Number 3: PVC also known as Polyvinyl Chloride, unsafe
  • Number 4: LDPE also known as Low Density Polyethylene, safe
  • Number 5: PP also known as Polypropylene, safe
  • Number 6: PS also known as Polystyrene, unsafe
  • Number 7: Other, this includes Polycarbonate, unsafe

As you can see, Plastic 3, 6 and 7 cannot be recycled and may pose harm to the health as well as the environment. Plastic with Code 1 can be recycled just one whereas 2, 4 and 5 are considered to be the most safest amongst all the other types.

Overall, this means you should check the type of plastic before making a decision. All the plastic containers in this post are made from Plastic 1 which is PETE, considered safe for use.

I hope this post on Best Kitchen Storage Containers in India under 600 Rupees in 2021 was useful as well as insightful. Before you buy any of these, please note plastic as a material is not good for the environment and hence, be a little mindful while you use it and avoid throwing it in the garbage.
