Bulk jars, essential accessories

Storage in a kitchen is always a complicated thing. To help you find your way around, why not adopt bulk jars? Available in a variety of materials, sizes and colours, these practical and ecological items will do you a lot of good.


The value of glass jars in the kitchen


In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in airtight glass jars in the home. They are very useful storage items in a zero waste kitchen. They can be used for a variety of purposes, including the long-term storage and preservation of bulk foods.


The lids are designed to provide an ideal seal to prevent air from seeping in and the products inside from spoiling or being attacked by food moths. For added convenience, these clear jars have a rim on the lid that allows them to be easily stacked to save space on a shelf or in a cupboard.


For keeping spices or a variety of foodstuffs safe, depending on your tastes, these everyday objects are very useful. You can use them to get rid of unnecessary plastic or cardboard packaging to store rice, wheat, lentils, flour or sugar.


These containers are particularly interesting if you make a habit of shopping in bulk in a grocery shop or shop. Glass is a healthy and hygienic material that is ideal for storing food and remains clean even after repeated washing.


Products are preserved without transferring odours or taste, and can be easily cleaned under water. If necessary, they can be sterilised by boiling them for about 15 minutes. The transparency of a jar is also a good way of assessing the quantities still available.


Glass jars for bulk storage are very practical for preserving your foodstuffs, but also for decorating a kitchen by adding a certain aesthetic touch. These durable containers can be used in other rooms of the house, holding dried fruit, sweets or aperitif mixes.


Another advantage of bulk or storage jars is that they come in a variety of sizes to suit all your needs. The largest items, such as the 2 litre, can even hold spaghetti.


Well choosing your bulk jars


Glass jars are a great help in dealing with all the storage needs in the kitchen. These objects come in a wide variety of models. Four large sizes are available: 0,5 L, 0,75 L, 1 L, 1,5 L et 2 L.


Luminarc glass is a very strong, high quality material that guarantees a long life. Depending on the item, you can find the classic airtight lid, available in various materials for easy storage, or a wooden stopper that keeps spices, cereals and starches safe from moisture.


An airtight jar is an excellent way to ensure that your products will last. Glass is a healthy and environmentally friendly product that is suitable for use in contact with your foodstuffs.


For your shopping, you can use the bulk bags provided and then fill the jars of your choice when you get home. The jars can be stored for a long time, but they can break if there is an accident. They can then be recycled, which is another ecological advantage.


Tips on how to better store your food 


The zero waste trend started as a marginal trend but has become a common one. In order to succeed, it is essential to have your own containers for bulk shopping in stores that offer this option. Unnecessary packaging accounts for almost 40% of the weight of our bins, so it is very interesting to do without it to protect the environment. To find out where to shop in this way, online information and consumer reviews can help.


A jar can easily be bought individually or in sets. Depending on your taste, you can choose transparent, opaque or coloured containers. They can also be put in the dishwasher and kept in the freezer. For the storage of food products, it is best to choose a place protected from heat and light. For healthy food, products without additives or preservatives should be chosen as a priority.

This type of accessory is very versatile and can be used in the bathroom to hold shampoo. It is also a beautiful and original decorative object. If you are going to use your jars frequently, you can choose items made of materials known for their resistance. In this way, you will greatly reduce the risk of breakage in the event of a fall.


Finally, it can be useful to label your jars, indicating the nature of the product being stored, the date and place of purchase, and even cooking tips to save time on a daily basis. This will ensure that your kitchen is tidy and your products are easily accessible.
