The glass kitchen canisters come in many different sizes and shapes but all come in one single common purpose which is for us to be able to store our valuable (usually) dried foodstuffs in our kitchen in clean and well organized way. With proper storage, we can ensure the quality of our stored dried foodstuffs is always on the good shape for us to consume when we need one. People have been made and use kitchen canisters since very long time ago.
Initially, before the invention of what so called glass material, people has been using many materials to make their own kitchen canisters. In some places, some kind of water melon which has thick skin and dried properly have been used as kitchen canisters in the old days, but ever since glass invented, these items have turned into some kind of decorative function items for our house.
Creative people have been exploring their sense of creativity in creating in attempt to make the best possible models of glass kitchen canisters we can get. What they put on is not only the main function of this item which is for storage purpose, but also has some other function incorporated as well.
The most known one is as decorative item too. The way they make such an interesting model of glass kitchen canisters inspires many to collect the items just for the shake of collection and not for the initial purpose of this item which is for storage.
There’s one which attract me most, but this one is not referred to the group of decorative items but rather has another function which incorporated as one. Beside the initial purpose for storage dried foodstuffs, this can turn into a mug for us to drink our beverages with. These are so called Mason Mug glass kitchen canisters.
Mason mug glass kitchen canisters can be used both as storage containers with (off course) their lids on, but when their lids are off, they turned into a mug or glass to drink our beverage with. This simple but interesting concept of combining 2 functions into one piece of item has been there since more than 50 years ago in the United States when Mason mug firstly invented.
The curved pattern of the top edge of this mug makes us able to put on the lids and transform that into glass storage container for the initial purpose in the first place.
