anyone have a good suggestion of where to get reasonably priced air tight containers for storing flour, sugar, etc.? also any tips on whether glass is better than metal would be appreciated. thanks!

    I bought 2 very large thick glass round cannisters with stainless lids that are air tight from that place on Spadina....is it called Tap Phung?? It's got everything you need inside and seems to be a very popular spot. They were pretty cheap too, less than $15 each if I recall correctly. I love them, the hold large bags of four and sugar, plus my big scoops. And bonus, they look great on the counter.
