Good Spice Containers
« on: June 19, 2013, 05:07 PM »
Hi

Just bought these food containers for my spices whilst I'm preparing a meal. They cost 2 half quid (2.50 GBP) at ASDA Direct
I have attached a  couple pics and a link

Looks good value.  I thought at first you meant GBP 2-50 /each/, which seemed outrageous, but GBP 2-50 for eight plus tray is excellent.

I'd just add that Lidl is selling  (in France, but they usually have the same offers in the U.K) packs of 4 plastic containers. I bought 20 of them to sort out my terrifying spice cupboard. Thay are rectangular with a tight fitting blue lid, 0.3l capacity and cost less than 3 euro for the four. Might be worth checking out.

Yeah Phil I bought two. They are easy to clean although the cap hinge could prove to be flimsy in heavy hands  ;D. But they are great value for the money. I fill the cups in order of spice to be added, so no mistakes are made (as yet  ???

No, I'm sorry I don't. I was looking at the Lidl UK site but couldn't find anything. I don't have the patience (or the bandwidth) to try to put up any photos. Maybe at the weekend.

Get something authentic that looks the part and support the site at the same time.

A shameless plug but I love this little spice tin.

What is the projected shelf life is spices stored in the Massala Dabba, Stew, and how does it compare with shelf life when stored in airtight jars as normally recommended ?

Hi Phil,

Who knows it keeps my spices fresh as it has a lid and inner cover.
A billion Indian people can't be wrong.
