It can be a hassle trying to fit store bought grains into your pantry—they come in a variety of containers that require a Tetris-like finesse to fit together—and most of the packaging isn’t resealable. Buying airtight plastic containers is an easy and attractive solution for fresh, easy to access grains. The best ones are stackable—for easy storage—and BPA-free. We’ve chosen our favorites.
The reliable, space-efficient choice. Amazon
OXO is a leader in reliable, sophisticated, and simple kitchen gadgetry. This set of five Good Grips POP Containers is a great choice for a range of dry goods and grains. They’re stackable, making it a space effective way to store pantry items—and the 2.1-quart container is even tall enough to hold spaghetti. Just press the button at the top to engage the airtight seal. Containers are top-rack dishwasher safe, making them a snap to clean when not in use.

This airtight six piece set comes in identical sizing, for a satisfyingly uniform look. They each hold .9 quarts, are BPA-free, and can store everything from pasta to rice to cereal to flour. Stack them to maximize your storage space. The handle at the top also functions as the airtight lock—flip it from one side to the other to seal in pantry items.
A great OXO Good Grips dupe. Amazon
Nolosha’s airtight plastic containers boast all of the qualities of their competitors, at an even better value. Seven containers of varied sizes provide ample storage for a range of pantry items, in a BPA-free plastic that makes it easy to see which items are stored inside.
For all of your breakfast grains. Amazon
These OXO Cereal Dispensers are great for any pantry item that you regularly access, and would rather be able to pour (rather than having to unsnap a lid and reach in). The 3.4 quart size can store an entire box of cereal, and the bevels on the back make it easy to grip in one hand.
