Snapware Glasslock

Best glass storage containers

Glass food storage containers are almost impervious to stains, plus glass doesn't contain the controversial chemical BPA. But glass containers aren't very portable, and their plastic lids don't always fit very well. If you want to go with glass, experts say that tempered-glass Snapware Glasslock containers are a great choice. These containers include silicone lids with four latches that guard against leaks. Reviews say that these freezer-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe containers, which come in round and rectangular shapes and seven sizes, are easy to clean. They are, however, more expensive than similar containers made of plastic.

Disposable food containers

Experts say to choose the low-cost Ziploc Smart Snap Seal containers if you like the idea of containers you can reuse for several months, then discard when stained or damaged. The Smart Snap containers allow you to seal the top with a one-finger push on the lid. Reviewers and testers alike say the Ziploc Smart Snap Seal Containers get the job done when storing leftovers. The Ziploc Smart Snap containers are microwave-, dishwasher- and freezer-safe and nest within each other for storage. The containers come in eight sizes and are BPA-free. Because these containers are designed to be disposed of or given away, they are made of flimsier plastic and may open if dropped. In general, users say they usually last about a year. Although they are technically recyclable, most cities don't accept food containers other than bottles for recycling.
