How to shop for the best food storage container?

✔Material: Glass and plastic are two of the most common food storage options. Glass can often be used in the oven, while plastic cannot. The trade-off is that glass is heavier and can break, which doesn’t make it the best for taking on the go.


✔Shape: Look for containers with straight edges versus flared to avoid hogging unnecessary room in your fridge and cabinets.


✔Lids: A lid that doesn’t seal is a dealbreaker. Some simply press down to close while others have clasps on the sides. We tend to prefer lids without clasps because they’re thinner and store more easily, but it’s worth noting that the clasps offer an extra source of leak protection.
