For example, two 40-foot dry cargo containers could look the same on the outside but might have different cargo handling capacity on the inside because one container was constructed for handling general cargo loaded onto pallets and the other container was constructed to handle garments on hangers so they can be easily off-loaded and placed immediately on the sales floor at your local clothing store.

Dry Storage Containers

Without a good set of dry storage containers, a kitchen pantry can quickly get out of control.If you regularly buy ingredients in bulk, a set of storage containers is essential. The paper or plastic bags you fill up at the grocery store are no place to keep dry ingredients: they tear easily, are difficult to pour from, and pile up messily on the shelf. Especially if you buy things in large quantities, you’ll want storage containers to keep those ingredients organized and fresh over a long period of time. If you already have a set of containers for bulk ingredients but find they don’t seal well or fit easily in cabinets, you also may want to upgrade.

Though testing glass containers wasn’t out of the question, we ultimately only tested plastic models. Since the European Food Safety Authority published a massive assessment of BPA in 2015, we’re not worried about any negative health effects from using plastic containers for dry storage which doesn’t involve heat or acid that might degrade the material. If you’re uncertain, our guide to food storage containers has more on choosing between plastic and glass. In the case of dry storage, glass tends to be heavier and can break easily, which makes pouring a full container or pulling it from a high shelf risky. The glass containers on the market are often more decorative than practical, and only come in smaller sizes meant for countertop display. All the experts we spoke to did recommend some version of a basic canning jar for its tight seal. But we chose not to test any jars because they don’t stack, their opening is often too narrow to scoop from, and the larger sizes are unwieldy to pour.

Food storage can take many different forms, depending on how much and what kinds of food you are keeping fresh. Will it be refrigerated, frozen, or kept out? Food, drinks or ingredients? Would you like it out for display? Plastic and glass food storage containers are usually appropriate for leftovers with their airtight seals and clear visibility into what you’re keeping refrigerated. Glass food containers are also BPA free, and can go right into the oven for prepared food or leftovers that need cooking. Jars and canisters, on the other hand are great for countertop food and ingredient storage like spices. Our collection of food storage products is second to none. Here, you’ll find everything you need, from beautiful countertop solutions for dry goods to products for storing Fido’s kibbles. All of our food storage containers are BPA-free.

Without a good set of dry storage containers, a kitchen pantry can quickly get out of control. Conversely, a good set of dry storage containers can whip disorganized cupboards into shape. If you currently keep your pantry goods in a collection of random jars and Tupperware, a uniform set of containers will keep cupboards neat and easy to navigate. And in the long run, an organized pantry not only looks good but also saves time and money. It makes it easy to see what you have (and how much of it) at a glance, to grab ingredients quickly, and to scoop or pour anything from flour to dried beans without making a mess. And it can keep ingredients fresh and pest-free longer.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the need for alternative storage in the United States began to grow when pools at many nuclear reactors began to fill up with stored spent fuel. As there was not a national nuclear storage facility in operation at the time, utilities began looking at options for storing spent fuel. Dry cask storage was determined to be a practical option for storage of spent fuel and preferable to leaving large concentrations of spent fuel in cooling tanks. The first dry storage installation in the US was licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in 1986 at the Surry Nuclear Power Plant in Virginia, at 37°09′47″N 76°41′10″W / 37.1630°N 76.6861°W / 37.1630; -76.6861 (Surry Power Station spent fuel storage). Spent fuel is currently stored in dry cask systems at a growing number of power plant sites, and at an interim facility located at the Idaho National Laboratory near Idaho Falls, Idaho. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission estimates that many of the nuclear power plants in the United States will be out of room in their spent fuel pools by 2015, most likely requiring the use of temporary storage of some kind. Yucca Mountain was expected to open in 2017. However, on March 5, 2009, Energy Secretary Steven Chu reiterated in a Senate hearing that the Yucca Mountain site was no longer considered an option for storing reactor waste.

Rubbermaid’s modular containers were one of only a few models we tested to also include measurements—in both cups and liters—marked on the outside.Stacking the Rubbermaid modular containers was easy. A high rim around the lid keeps containers from sliding around on top of one another, so that the stack stays firmly upright. While everything we tried was technically stackable, containers like the Oggi Acrylic Canisters had a completely smooth lid, with nothing to keep the top container from sliding off the bottom at the slightest disturbance.

Stacking was also easy because all of the Rubbermaid modular containers have the same rectangular shape, no matter what their capacity. Other models, like the Click Clack containers, shrink their footprint with capacity. Or, like Lock & Lock Rectangular Food Containers, they come in a dizzying array of lengths and widths, so you can only stack like with like. That kind of variety not only makes organizing more difficult, it can also leave you scrambling to find the right size lid. With the Rubbermaid modular containers, one lid fits all sizes.

Rubbermaid’s modular containers are completely dishwasher safe. They are also as simple in design as possible: no multi-piece vacuum lids to disassemble, no locking clips like the Sistema Klip It Containers, no top-heavy, awkward, hinged lids like on the Oggi canisters. Instead, the lids simply snap on. Best of all, the lids are interchangeable between the different-sized containers. That means no scrambling the right lid amidst a jumble of similar-but-not-quite-the-same options, as we had to do with containers like the OXOs.

Dry storage containers should fit nicely in a kitchen cabinet. We chose square or rectangular containers over round when possible, since they use space more efficiently, but we didn’t eliminate round containers from the running, since they can be easier to pour from. We also looked for sets with a range of sizes, since not all ingredients come in the same quantities. To keep things looking neat, Toni Hammersley, author of The Complete Book of Home Organization, recommends sticking to three sizes: large for bulk ingredients like flour, medium for snacks like pretzels, and small for things like nuts. Those with an extensive pantry may want one or two more sizes. There’s no consistent range of sizes from brand to brand, but we only tested models that came in a size large enough to hold a 5-pound bag of all-purpose flour, which is somewhere between 4 and 5 quarts in volume (it varies based on how compact or aerated the flour is).
