The best glass food storage containers are multi-purpose and can help you save time and make space in your kitchen. Switch glass for these five reasons!
Imagine you’ve just finished an amazing dinner. It was hard work, but the meal was great. Now the kitchen clean-up awaits and you’ve got to put away the leftovers.
Luckily for you, you’ve got a huge supply of food storage containers in every size you can think of… if only you could find the right lid.
Having more on the surface seems like the answer when you’re exhausted or in a rush… but if you really think about it, usually, excess leads to kitchen chaos and frustration within the moment.
One way to easily simplify, reset your kitchen, and make space is to declutter the recyclable plastic Ziploc containers, the mismatched Tupperware, and intentionally switch to glass food storage containers.
As you begin to make intentional multi-purpose kitchen choices, the amount of space in your cabinets will shock you. Because glass storage containers can serve multiple purposes, you can comfortably donate old casserole dishes, metal mixing bowls, and plastic food storage containers.

When you're researching...
01. The best storage containers are multi-purposed
The best glass food storage containers serve more than one purpose. For example, a large measuring cup that can also serve as a mixing bowl. Or an oven-safe glass dish that you can bake a casserole with, but has a storage lid too!

Glass is the best choice for food storage containers because it is absolutely dishwasher safe, saving you time. Most products have top-rack dishwasher-safe lids too. We sometimes still wash ours by hand to increase longevity. It depends on the day!
03. The highest-quality glass containers are oven and microwave safe
Look for glass food dishes that can are heat resistant (microwave and oven safe), so you can bake, serve, store, and reheat in a single dish, saving you time and extra dishes! If you cannot bake in it, pick a different brand!
04. The best glass containers are able to be nested

^ This is a mistake I personally made and regretted. We’ve had Pyrex containers for years now and the lids are still pliable.

Before you buy, make sure the brand you're considering sells replacement lids. If you're using your containers on the go, lids are bound to disappear over time. Ensure long-term use, the best glass food storage containers will offer the ability to buy new individual lids online!
