Pyrex Store 'N' See Containers (1968) 

On the market from 1968 to 1986, Store 'N' See containers also were identified at various times as Stack 'N' See or simply a Canister Set.  The Cracker Barrel & Cookie Jar are similar products.

        

Avocado, White, Yellow, Woodgrain

Avocado & White were the initial colour choices offered in 1968, and Yellow debuted in 1969.  Avocado remained through the early 1970s, but White & Yellow were dropped in 1970 when Woodgrain arrived.  Woodgrain's lids are dark brown with a printed pattern around the side.

Lids on the four main Store 'N' See sizes (16 oz, 32 oz, 48 oz, 80 oz) fall into two diameters: medium (4¾") & wide (6¼"); the latter has an indented handle.  As well as two widths, containers came in two heights: short (3¾") & tall (7½").  So the short 16 oz and tall 48 oz fit the same medium-width lid, and the short 32 oz and tall 80 oz both use a wide lid.  Although each size could be purchased individually, they were often sold in a four-piece set.

The smallest Store 'N' See container is short & narrow, measuring 2¾" in diameter and 3¾" high, and holds ¾ cup (6 oz).  In 1970 this size became available as a salt & pepper set with perforated lids, but not in White or Yellow.  During the early 1970s, this size was also supplied with Salton electric yogurt makers, and examples from that set have white lids with "Salton" embossed on the top.

A Shake 'N' Pour (1 Qt, 32 oz) is tall with a unique 4" diameter and graduated measurements printed in white on the side.  This size, and the tall & narrow Liquid Container (1 pt, 16 oz), were still available in 1971, but otherwise they seem to be short-lived.  It seems that they only exist in the original three colours, Avocado, White and Yellow.  The lids of the Liquid Container and the Shake 'N' Pour snap on, rather than twist on.

Store 'N' See containers with White tops returned in a four-piece set (1 pt, 1 Qt, 1½ Qt, 2½ Qt) in 1980.  They were paired with a Just White P-104 Corning Ware teapot in a set named "Store 'N' Brew".

   

Yellow daisy design

In 1970 a unique Pyrex storage container was introduced with a yellow daisy design printed on the glass.  The usual size is 6" tall and holds more than one quart.  An 8" size also exists, which is less common.  The lid is a snap-on type, so this container is different from typical Store 'N' See canisters.
   
Containers with a yellow daisy decoration were a free gift with the purchase of Maxwell House coffee.  They were filled with 10 oz of instant coffee and originally had product labels glued to the exterior.  Although the containers are marked "Corning Brand Glass", they are undoubtedly made of Pyrex.

A new size debuted in 1978, the Pasta Keeper (85 oz).  At 11", it is the tallest Store 'N' See canister and uses a regular medium-width lid.  It was offered in Spice O' Life and Wildflower.
   
In 1981, Autumn Harvest joined the Store 'N' See product line, and it is the only Pyrex pattern that encompasses Store 'N' See containers.  Just the four main sizes were marketed with this decoration.
