Sleek, chic design in the kitchen is usually reserved for beautiful table settings or a state-of-the-art espresso maker, but one spot that’s often overlooked is food storage. I’ve definitely been guilty of reusing takeout food containers in a pinch and having a drawer full of old, mismatched Tupperware with lids that are officially MIA. Thankfully, Yamazaki, one of our favorite minimalist home brands, just introduced a collection of food storage containers, and they’re so striking that you’ll want them on full display on your kitchen counter where they can be admired by all. The brand-spanking-new pieces are both pretty and practical, with an incredibly clever, space-saving design that we’ve come to expect from the Japanese brand. Below, take a look at the three options, and if you like what you see (which we’re pretty positive you will … ), browse Yamazaki’s complete kitchen storage and organization collection.

Serving your morning cereal — or whatever you choose to put inside this dry food storage bin — just got a lot more enticing. Proving right away that this isn’t any old food storage container, the lid slides instead of popping open, giving it an extra dash of avant-garde functionality. Since it’s clear (and BPA-free, too!), you won’t have to whip out the label maker to know whether you’ve stored cereals, grains, flours, or any other dry foods inside. Minimalist in design and size, it’s tall and thin (just 7.4-inches wide) while still easily holding up to 2.3 liters of contents. Plus, if you snag a couple, they easily line up for a uniform, space-saving solution. The container also comes in a striking black option.

Ever the minimalist, this sophisticated and sleek cylindrical food canister comes in black or white with a clear, air-tight lid that keeps contents fresh and free from pesky critters. Made from ceramic, the versatile piece can be used to store both hot and cold eats, from last night’s dinner to dry snacks. Best of all, the containers are stackable, so you can load them up vertically to save space.

Yamazaki is so thoughtful that they made the ceramic food canister in a second size that's great for on-the-go snacks. The smaller version boasts the same cool features and is also available in black or white. It's the perfect size to store tiny items like leftover vegetables or even spices, and just think about carrying two for breakfast on the move: one for yogurt and another for granola. Since these canisters are stackable, you can mix and match sizes as you need.
