Uses for round storage containers include wreaths, candles, household items and holiday decorations. Different sizes and styles of round storage containers are available for both indoor and outdoor use, with some designed specifically for food.
Round storage containers that are used for wreaths, votive candles, extension cords, holiday ornaments and lights are of a larger diameter and are somewhat shallow in depth. These containers are also used to store household items such as balls of yarn or hoses. Some of these particular containers also have latching closures and a carrying handle. When not in use, the lid to the container fits securely underneath it, expanding usable space and allowing for stackable, hassle-free storage.
Round storage containers designed for food are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles. These particular containers are often free of harmful chemicals, such as BPA, and are typically dishwasher safe. The taller varieties of long-term, round, food storage containers are most often used for items such as long pastas, cereal, flour, sugar and oats. Other large, round food storage containers are used for soups, sauces, salads and other perishable items that require refrigeration. Some types of round food storage containers are available with twisting, threaded lids to avoid leaks, while others offer a vented snap closure in the lid, allowing certain foods to maintain a flow of air.
