Cambros
These chunky little containers are, hands down, the very best way to store large amounts of food at home. Food service containers are sized for restaurants, which means they usually start at a two-quart capacity and go up to a couple gallons. At first glance, that may seen way too large for home use, but they're really just the thing for storing big batches of soup, greens, or bulk grains and pasta. They're also perfect for dry goods like flour and sugar, are stackable for easy storage, and nigh-indestructible. Matt Taylor-Gross
