Plastic containers are light, convenient, easy to clean and easy to acquire (thank you, takeout!). But it’s the likelihood of toxic chemicals seeping into food, especially if the food is on the warmer side or if you’re heating in the microwave, is what I’m not so comfortable with.
And so continues the mission of eliminating plastic!
I ordered this 10-piece set of sturdy, glass containers that are microwave, freezer and dishwasher-safe for the affordable price of $20. While the glass containers must be handled with a little more care, they are stackable, safe to use and the bpa-free lids seal very tight. There’s almost no difference so the transition has been seamless.
