I was given these thick glass canisters for free. I thought they'd be great for things like sugar, oatmeal, flour, etc. but the opening is not wide enough for a measuring cup to fit in. I guess people get scoops for this but it seems like it would just be easier after all to just still the measuring cup into the flour bag like I've been doing my whole adulthood. What do you think? They are rectangular/tall.
Are these glass canisters worth keeping?
Technically, when measuring flour, you're not supposed to scoop it out with the measuring cup. The proper way to do it is to scoop it into the measuring cup with a spoon and then use a knife to level it off.
If you don't want to use them for flour and such, would they hold pasta or rice or something like that?
