Food storage kitchen containers

Food tastes better when it’s fresher. Everything from cereal and spices to cookies and cake lasts longer and keeps more of its flavour when stored properly. We’ve got a vast and varied range of kitchen containers to help you make your food go further, including airtight storage containers, countertop cookie jars and containers for cereal. You’ll find all the food storage solutions you need under one roof, right here at Lakeland.

Locked tight

The key to ensuring your makes and bakes last longer is to keep the contents airtight and stored properly. Airtight storage containers and boxes can be used in the pantry, the fridge, the freezer and cupboards, and because they’re so well sealed, your food stays fresh for longer. By keeping the contents airtight, food storage containers help keep bacteria and moisture out - some even have a raised section inside for better air circulation. Take a look at the range of hinged storage containers we stock from LocknLock - they guarantee a 100% airtight, watertight seal in just four clicks.

Fantastic plastic

Versatile and durable, plastic food containers are perfect for the pantry but equally capable in the kitchen. Browse our range online or in store and you’ll find plenty of plastic food containers with lids in stock from innovative kitchenware brands like Lékué - ideal for storing fresh food or leftovers - along with dozens of options in our own range that stack to save space. Available in a wide choice of sizes, our plastic containers for food are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe for maximum versatility.

Secure and stylish

A go-to for style and function, glass storage containers can be as attractive as they are practical. Unlike plastic, glass storage doesn’t take on the flavour of its contents, so it’s great for strong-smelling spices or whiffy cheese. Ideal storage containers for the pantry, the fridge or the cupboard, glass jars can hold everything from pasta and cookies to coffee beans, keeping the contents fresh and flavoursome. We’ve even got handy snack-pots from top brands like Kilner, complete with silicone lids, perfect for bite-size servings of fruit, veg, seeds or nuts, or even as a leak-proof solution for salad dressings.

Box-to-bowl freshness

Stale cereal isn’t anyone’s idea of a tasty breakfast but with our wide range of cereal plastic containers, it’s not something you need worry about. We stock the best brands around for cereal storage, like OXO Good Grips. Their large containers for cereal are perfect for keeping the contents as fresh as the day the box was opened, and sizes go up to 4.2 litres, so they can easily hold a big box of cereal. Silicone lids ensure a tight seal and the rounded, smooth-pour spout makes dispensing a doddle.

Zip it

For saving space, nothing beats flexible zip-top silicone containers. We’ve got a great range of food storage containers for the pantry, cupboards, fridge and freezer from top brands like Zip Top: containers stand on a flat base but flex to fit around whatever else you’re storing. They’re compact, sturdy and can be used again and again for everything from storing pasta or dried beans to fresh soup and snacks. And because they’re reusable, they’ll help you keep your plastic waste to a minimum.
