One important thing to understand is that blob containers in WABS are scoped within a storage account while buckets in AS3 are scoped within an Amazon account. When you create a storage account in WABS, you specify the location (data center) of that storage account. Thus all your blob containers are within a particular data center (geographic location constrained). Where as when you create a bucket in AS3, you can specify in which region you wish this bucket to be created. Thus in essence you could have your buckets spread over all data centers in AS3 if there is a need for such a requirement. To accomplish the same in WABS, you would need to create storage accounts in different data centers first and then create blob containers in each storage account.

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.

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.

Where To Buy Click for price Amazon Buy $18.14 Walmart Buy California Home Goods 3 Compartment Bento If you care about portion control, check out the California Home Goods 3 Compartment Bento. This compact set of five lids and five containers stacks efficiently, and you can use the three partitioned sections to manage what you eat: large section for protein, medium for fats, small for carbs. Unfortunately, these are basically the same containers you'd get when you order takeout at a restaurant. You may experience some drips or commingling across the sections if you jostle the containers too hard, and the thin plastic will almost certainly break after repeated uses. At least there’s a lifetime warranty. Prices shown for the 10-piece set.

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.
