I'm looking at purchasing some containers for food storage. I'm really hoping someone has an idea where I could potentially get a kit (~24 piece depending on price) of varying sizes.


Briscoes sells them per container for around 16-30 PER container. Insane. I'm hoping there's like a starter kit to get a bit better pricing.




Any ideas? I saw stuff come on u-buy (thanks google) but immediately threw that idea in the bin.

Have a look for Pyrex kits. We bought one from the US and was much cheaper than sourcing it locally

We bought glass containers in various sizes from the $2 shop. No kits like what you are wanting, but cheaper than briscoes.


Seems to do the trick.  I am assuming you are wanting for general storage of dry goods and not for pickling.


The ones with the metal clasp to close and seal the lid may be a little flimsy.  Look for ones that have a silicon seal around the lip

I was going to suggest Arthur Holmes in Wellington. My go-to for glass containers. But their website has been shut down as they have been overwhelmed with orders and limited stock.

Mitre10 have a selection of glass storage containers


Not sure about the quality however. You may need to mix and match. Most kits I've seen are 8 to 12 only. 


Also, have a look at Spotlight as well. They have a decent selection from time to time.
