They are often made from plastic, some of which are transparent to allow the chef to see at a glance what the contents of the container is. Food storage containers came in a wide array of sizes. Some are mobile and used to store large volumes of ingredients such as flour or cereal. Others are smaller and may have useful graduation lines on the side of the container.
