Sleek, chic design in the kitchen is often reserved for beautiful table settings or a state-of-the-art espresso maker. One spot that’s usually overlooked is food storage. We’ve all been guilty (it me!) of having a drawer full of old, mismatched Tupperware with lids that are officially MIA, or reusing takeout containers in a pinch and hiding them in the back of the fridge. Thankfully, Yamazaki, one of our favorite minimalist storage and organization brands, just introduced a new collection of food storage containers and they’re so striking that you’ll want them on full display on your kitchen counter or front and center in the refrigerator, where they can be admired by all. Best of all, the spanking new food storage containers are both pretty and practical, with an incredibly clever and space-saving design that we’ve come to expect from the Japanese brand. Below, take a look at the three new options and browse Yamazaki’s complete kitchen storage and organization collection.

Serving yourself your morning cereal — or whatever you choose to put inside this dry food storage bin — just got a lot more enticing. To prove this isn’t any old food storage, the lid slides instead of popping open, giving it an extra dash of avant-garde functionality. Since it’s clear (and BPA-free too!), you won’t have to whip out the label maker to know whether you’ve stored cereals, grains, flours, or any other dry foods inside. Minimalist in design and size, it’s tall and thin (just 7.4-inch wide), so it has a small footprint, while still easily holding up to 2.3 liters of contents. Plus, if you snag a couple, they easily line up for a uniform yet space-saving solution. The container also comes in a striking black option.

Ever the minimalist, this sophisticated and sleek cylindrical food canister comes in black or white with a clear air-tight light that keeps contents fresh and free from pesky critters. Made from ceramic, the versatile piece can be used to store both hot and cold eats, from last night’s dinner to dry snacks. Best of all, the containers are stackable, so you can load them up vertically to save space.

Yamazaki is so thoughtful that of course, their ceramic food canister wouldn’t come in just one size. The smaller version boasts the same thoughtful features and is also available in black or white. Its petite size makes it ideal for on-the-go snacks; think carrying two for breakfast on the move, with one for yogurt and another for granola. It's also the perfect size to store tiny items like leftover vegetables or even spices. Since it’s stackable, you can mix and match sizes for your needs.
