I always use Pyrex glass containers to store my food in. These things are mini-miracle workers. They are stackable (which saves room in the fridge), you can easily see what’s in them, freezer, oven and microwave safe. You can even eat right out of them!
Glass is highly superior to plastic containers for several reasons. Plastic can leach food odor and chemicals into your food. Glass is non-porous and doesn’t absorb germs like plastic does. Food stores longer in glass. And, unlike plastic, you can wash glass at high temperatures. Glass is much better for the environment because they are sturdy. A one time purchase and these things will last forever.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU SHOP FOR GLASS STORAGE CONTAINERS
To get the most from your investment in glass storage containers, look for:
Glass containers with tight-fitting lids made of glass, rubber or non-toxic plastic. Try to find flat lids without knobs for easier stacking.
Oven-proof, freezer-safe tempered glass so you can move food from freezer to stove—or oven to fridge—without danger of cracked or broken glass.
Square or rectangular shapes that allow containers to stack easily, pack close together and take up less space in fridge.
