These storage containers are virtually leak-proof thanks to the water tight design that includes a 4-hinge locking mechanism.

The material from which the containers are made is polypropylene plastic with no BPA and phthalates at all. All the containers can be stacked upon each other in the fridge or cupboard for convenience.
- Kitchen Gear Zone
These are made from FDA-approved polypropylene, and you won't have to be concerned about BPA or other harmful toxins getting into your body while using them.

What experts didn't like
Users mentioned that after multiple uses some of the lids may not snap correctly.
- The Gear Hunt
The set does not include labels for pantry organization.
- Kitchen Gear Zone
A con that I noticed right away was that only the bottoms of the containers are refrigerator, freezer, and microwave safe. This means that you must take the lids off before you heat anything up to avoid harmful chemicals from getting into your food.

An Overview On Storage For Leftovers

Whether you’re whipping up holiday favorites, packing lunches or saving leftovers from your favorite takeout joint, one thing’s for sure: You’re going to need a great set of containers to store your leftovers. You could toss your Thanksgiving stuffing into a Ziploc bag or stuff your midday work snack into a flimsy sandwich bag, but you — and your food — deserve better. A fantastic set of reusable storage containers for your food is the best way to keep it fresh.

Food storage containers come in an array of sizes, materials and colors. Glass containers are sturdy and generally safe to put in the microwave, oven and freezer. They’re also easy to see through, so you never lose track of that meal you cooked up a few days ago. However, they are heavier than plastic containers, and they can break or chip if you drop them.

You might end up spending more than you’d like to with glass containers. Luckily, hard plastic containers are quickly catching up to glass in terms of durability and longevity. Most new plastic food storage containers are also BPA-free. Some are dishwasher, oven, freezer and microwave safe, but they still might break down over time. They’re also more likely to retain odors or colors from your food, but this can be prevented with proper care.

Locking lids are available on both glass and plastic containers. These lids offer a tighter seal that may keep your food fresher for longer. They can also prevent spills or leaks, which is vital when packing leftovers for lunch. 

Finding the right storage containers for your food will keep your tastebuds happy for days or weeks after you make your meal. Head over to our Tips & Advice for more hints on buying the right set.

DYWM Fun Fact

If it seems like your food goes bad within a day or two after grocery shopping, you might need to heed some food storage advice. 

When you buy bananas, take them apart from the bunch when you get home. You can use a leftover cardboard six-pack holder to keep each banana safe and fresh.

Storing a loaf of bread in the fridge will protect it from mold, but it will also make your bread go stale more quickly. Keep your bread tightly closed in its original wrapping for maximum freshness.

It’s fine to keep commercial maple syrup in the pantry, but pure maple syrup doesn’t have the preservatives to survive on the shelf. Keep it in the fridge, then pour out a serving size and heat it up in the microwave when it’s pancake time.

The Storage For Leftovers Buying Guide

  • If you want a container that you can pop directly in the microwave or oven, look for a glass container with built-in vents under the locking lid. This type of lid provides the airtight storage you need to keep your food fresh and the convenience you need to reheat food in seconds. 
  • Make sure that any plastic containers you buy are marked “BPA-free.” BPA is an industrial chemical used to make certain plastics, and it was common in plastic containers until a few years ago. It can seep into food over time and cause health problems.
  • Many plastic containers are marked safe for ovens, freezers and microwaves, but consumer reviews beg to differ. If you want a guarantee that your plastic containers will last, wash them by hand and let them air dry.
  • Airtight containers should have a silicone seal built into the bottom of the lid. Look for this feature before you plunk down cash for a set that isn’t truly airtight.
