The OXO Good Grips 8 Piece Smart Seal Glass Rectangle Container Set is one of the few sets we looked at that’s made with borosilicate glass, which is a great material for withstanding temperature changes.

With a plastic lid that latched easily and securely and an airtight, leakproof seal that didn't drip or let moisture in, this container is our top choice for glass storage.
- America's Test Kitchen
What experts didn't like
OXO’s glass containers are a little more expensive than the others we tested.
- Your Best Digs
However, it’s expensive (about $7 per container) and comes with only four containers, and one of the flaps completely broke off of a lid on our first attempt to close it.

An Overview On Glass Food Storage

Did you know that over 240 pounds of food per person is wasted each year in the United States? This can be avoided by simply storing any leftover food and eating it a day or two later. In fact, surveys show that 41% of people store and consume leftovers to save money. In addition to money, a person saves time. It takes just a few minutes to heat up a leftover plate of chicken and vegetables versus the 30 plus minutes it would take to cook the meal from scratch.

If you’re in the market for a quality set of food storage containers, you’ll want to go with glass. Glass dishes, like the Pyrex Simply Store Glass Food Storage, 6-Piece, are ideal because they never rust, and they are able to resist stains from dark sauces and odors from foods like onions and garlic.

Look for a glass food storage container that is heat safe. For example, the BAYCO Glass Food Storage Containers, 8-Pack is oven safe to temperatures as high as 700 degrees Fahrenheit. That means you can use the set to cook everything from lasagna to a shepherd’s pie.

If you do a lot of food prep, you’ll want a glass food storage set that is also freezer safe. The FineDine Superior BPA-Free Glass Food Storage, 24-Piece is freezer safe and designed to prevent freezer burn and discoloration. This is perfect for safely keeping large batches of homemade soups, cooked veggies and just about any type of casserole at the ready.

Check the lids last. You need a glass container with a matching lid that holds a seal. The C CREST Glass Food Storage Containers, 10-Pack comes with BPA-free locking lids with silicone rings. The silicone ring creates a watertight seal, while the locking lids let you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the lids are secure.

DWYM Fun Fact

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), foods should never be left out at room temperature for longer than two hours, as bacteria will begin to grow and may reach a level that could make you sick. The organization also points out that if it’s 90 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter outside, you should put your perishable food away within an hour of serving it.

A few other food storage tips include setting the temperature of your refrigerator at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and your freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, thawing frozen foods in a pot of cold water, your refrigerator or microwave and using the stored foods before the recommended storage time has expired. For example, if you store steak in your refrigerator, you’ll need to eat it within three to five days. If you store it in the freezer, it should be consumed within four to 12 months.

The Glass Food Storage Buying Guide

  • Store your food upright when using the glass storage containers. Even if the containers have a lid with a great seal, the food can still move freely within the container if there is a gap between the lid and the food.
  • Keep in mind that most lids must be removed from the glass food storage containers before you heat the food up in a microwave or traditional oven.
  • Always check the product packaging for cleaning instructions. Most glass food storage containers are dishwasher safe, although some companies recommend washing them on the top rack. Most of the containers’ lids, however, are made of plastic and must be washed by hand with the rest of your dishes.
  • Glass food storage containers don’t have to be used for food. There are plenty of other items that you can store in the containers to keep your home neat and organized. For example, you may wish to keep sewing supplies, like extra buttons, thimbles or spools of thread in the containers. If your kids have small toy collections, such as little army men or LEGO sets, the containers will keep the pieces together. Just a few other things you can use these glass jars to hold include hair bows, coins, nail art and jewelry.
  • To determine which set of glass food storage containers has the best value, you need to divide the price by the number of pieces in the set. The FineDine Superior BPA-Free Glass Food Storage, 24-Piece and the Pyrex Simply Store Glass Food Storage, 6-Piece are among the most affordable when you look at the price per piece. You’ll pay a moderate amount for the C CREST Glass Food Storage Containers, 10-Pack. The BAYCO Glass Food Storage Containers, 8-Pack is able to command the highest price per piece, thanks to its smart snap locking lids and its ability to withstand heat temperatures as high as 700 degrees Fahrenheit.
