Great Storage: CAST Glass Jars by Kosei Shirotani

We're always on the lookout for good storage jars for our pantry, and we just discovered some new favorites: the CAST series of jars from Japanese designer Kosei Shirotani.

These beautiful glass canisters are exactly what we are always looking for: Simple, see-through, and sealable. And yet we never seem to find this sort of thing in the marketplace; simplicity is hard to come by, sometimes.

We like how the lids have silicone seals and also are shaped so that the different sizes stack neatly and safely together. They also are straight and wide; no narrow necks or tops, which is a drawback to our otherwise beloved Mason jars. And of course glass is to be preferred over plastic.

These are a Japanese import, so they are not IKEA-style cheap, but sometimes it's worth paying for good quality, eh? Next time we reorganize the cabinet we may pick up a few of these.

• Find them! CAST Glass Storage Jars, available in the U.S. from Rare Device. $13.50-$25 apiece.
