Food containers are one of those items that are of greater importance for the organization of our everyday lives than we assume. Meal planning became an unavoidable part of our lives, and can you imagine the meal planning process without food storage containers? We’ve made a list of the best products in the category, and we’ve decided to take into consideration only the glass ones.
Glass storage containers have a few important advantages over plastic ones. We’ll name just a few:
- Glass containers are environmentally friendly and free of chemicals
- They are made of high-quality glass that tolerates rapid temperature changes
- They won’t absorb stains or smells.
Note: Plastic lids are not microwave or oven safe, so, please have that in mind.
We’ll start the list with Amazon’s choice for the best set in the category. It comes from FineDine, and although the title of the product says 24-piece, that means 12 pieces of glassware with 12 lids. So, remember that, since we can see it very often when speaking of cookware/kitchenware sets.
It’s made of premium glass with locking lids made of BPA-free plastic. The locking lids create an airtight seal which is the guarantee for food freshness. Also, the containers are leakproof and thus a perfect choice for any occasion – school, job, gym – as the title of the article says – from freezer to the oven and the table.
Containers are nesting inside each other – the first association is the Russian doll’s system. Overall, it’s a great set, and you won’t regret purchasing it.View on Amazon
Here we have another Amazon’s choice, this time for the term “food prep freezer containers”. It’s a 10-piece set, made of high-quality borosilicate glass with BPA-free plastic lids. The lids themselves are equipped with snap locks and silicone seals, which ensures your food will remain fresh and free of unwanted smells.
The whole set is made to be freezer, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. The only thing you should keep in mind is to take off the lids before putting them into any of these devices.
Overall, it’s a perfect set for storing leftovers, prepping a meal for a long trip, or a family picnic in the countryside.
Another interesting set comes from Razab HomeGoods. Besides simplicity, which caught our attention at a first sight, this product aims to be the largest glass storage container set on Amazon. Just to give you an idea of what we mean when we say “the largest” – the biggest container is of 74 oz or 2200 ml capacity.
All containers are made of high-quality glass, and all of them are dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe – up to 932 degrees. The lids are made of BPA free and non-toxic plastic with airtight and watertight features – the silicone seal guarantees it.
Also, all containers are made in five unique sizes, which is another interesting fact about this set. For detailed information click on the button below and view the set on Amazon.View on Amazon
We already said that glass containers are environmentally friendly, but this one is even friendlier. They come with bamboo lids with removable silicone seals – the lids can also be used as cutting boards.
The whole set is made of borosilicate glass, and containers are nesting inside each other – the Russian doll’s system. That means that they are made with sparing the resources in mind – eco-friendly, food-friendly, and even kitchen storage-friendly. The containers are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe up to 520 degrees.
To round out the story, the storage is manufactured by a small family business from the USA. I must admit I really like the whole idea as much as the product and this is my favorite item on the list. Just buy it.View on Amazon
This set contains 10 glass containers (with 10 plastic lids) suitable for any occasion, from prepping meals, storing leftovers to work lunches or picnics. What differentiates this set from the rest of the competition on this list is that every container is made of two compartments.
The whole set is made of high–quality borosilicate glass, dishwasher, freezer, oven, and microwave safe up to 725 degrees.
It comes with improved BPA – free plastic locking lids and removable rubber seals that in practice mean no leaks and guarantees the freshness of food.
Overall, it’s more than a decent glass food container set, and it’s available at a really reasonable and affordable price.View on Amazon
Here is another set with compartments and it also comes from Bayco.
When it comes to functionalities and quality there is nothing much to say – everything is pretty much the same. The only significant difference is in the number of containers and the number of compartments. To be more specific, this set contains a whole variety of containers with one, two, or three compartments. To get more info on this product click on the button below.View on Amazon For the end of the list, we’ve left this extra strong and safe set that contains only 3 glass containers + 3 locking lids.
The containers are made of high-quality glass, but silicone sleeves aim to make it even stronger, and safer from chips and breaks. All parts of the set are dishwasher safe, and BPA-free. Also, the containers, without the lid are microwave and oven safe. It’s important to emphasize that there is no need to take off the silicone sleeves, since you may not be able to put the containers back into them.
Also, the lids are so powerful that you sometimes might find it hard to even open the lids. That, on the other hand, means that your food will surely stay fresh and tightly sealed.
