One of my favourite containers are the Starfrit Lock & Lock Glass containers. I’ve been using them for many years and I decided to get a few more containers for food storage and portioning out meals for lunch. These types of gas containers have a few pros and cons.
- Heat resistant up to 750 F / 400 C
- Stain resistant
- BPA free
- Spill proof
- Microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe
- hygienic, easy to clean, safe and neutral to taste
- Heavy weight
- Potential breakage
- Plastic lids not durable in long run
What’s in the box
Inside the box, I purchased comes with:
- 750 ml square
- 500 ml square
- 2x 380 ml rectangular
- 160 ml rectangular
I got them online at Walmart.ca, but their description of the product was inaccurate, but I didn’t mind the change in sizes. It was supposed to be 2 x 130 ml rectangular, 2 x 360 ml rectangular and 1 x 750 ml rectangular. For $18 CDN, it wasn’t bad at all, but all the sizes aren’t large enough to store large quantities of good. Mostly good for lunch sizes.
The glass is thick and I’ve never dropped a container yet. *knocks on wood* It’s very easy to clean and super durable. I prefer these over plastic containers as the plastic one always warp or loose their shape.
From experience with the lids, they are good for the first little while, but if you always stick them in the dishwasher, the shape changes slightly so later down the road it gets harder to closer.
