Why do we always picture ceramic animals with removable heads when it comes to cookie storage? Let’s take a look at some streamlined versions of the cookie jar for today’s contemporary kitchen, along with a few that still bring along a touch of fun:

1. Iittala Large Glass Jar This Finnish-made canister has a sealed lid and 64oz capacity. $100 at Velocity
2. Wade Ceramics Ovation Cookie Jar Minimal in white with wooden lid – the lettering is DIY. $30 at
3. Bauer Cookie Jar These are classic and come in gorgeous colors for everyone (plus white for us purists). $90 at Bauer Pottery Co.
4. Silver Kitchen Storage Canisters Looks like these are strictly for biscuits – available in the UK at redcandy
5. Handmade Lidded Jar A one-of-a-kind, sculptural beauty. $70 by juditavill on Etsy

6. Large Porcelain Cherry Blossom Jar Can you tell we’re swooning? Another handmade creation. $150 by kristenkswanson on Etsy
7. Georgia Cookie Jar What can we say? Surrealism meets kitchen storage. $225 by Jonathan Adler
8. Death Star Cookie Jar When you can’t get all the kitsch out of the cookie jar. And even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan – that spherical shape is spot on. $50 at the Star Wars Shop
9. Bodum Yohki Storage Jar This is a big-un at 85oz, and much more affordable than the similar Iittala above. $45 at Bodum
