So I'm looking to replace my plastic containers that hold flour/sugar. I store them on a ledge in our kitchen so I need them to be a very particular size. I found a brand I like that I want to get, Snapware, but I'm just not sure which sizes to get. The biggest one that I need will hold a 5 lb bag of flour. I'd prefer not to have it fill to the very top, so I can easily scoop even when it's full. Also, I don't always wait until the flour is all gone to refill with a new bag, so I appreciate having some extra space at the top. Of these two containers, one holds 17 cups, one 23.
Do you think the 17 cup will be big enough? I know for the Oxo Pop Containers, they recommend the 4 qt for a bag of flour...
Thoughts? Also, what size would you recommend for smaller bags of things, like 00 flour, powdered sugar, cake flour, brown sugar...? Thanks in advance!
