Goodbye wicker picnic basket. The Swedish food storage box at Portland-based Canoe is infinitely more attractive than most food containers. These durable aluminum boxes demonstrate a typically Swiss approach to addressing an everyday need. Suitable for food storage due to their taste-neutral interior coating, the boxes feature a rubber gasket and flip closure, which makes them leak-proof. $25 for small (7 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches) or $30 for large (9 by 5.5 by 3.5 inches high) at Canoe.
