Desperately seeking advice on food storage containers

  • 3

Hello --

I am constantly struggling to find storage containers that can go from cupboard to freezer to microwave to refrigerator without cracking. Would also be nice if the lids would stay on.

Rubbermaid used to make one that worked, but had to drop it because of the BPA. Their current top-of-the-line containers don't last for me.

Are their other brands that might perform better? Does anybody still host Tupperware parties?

Thanks for your help.

  1. If you are referring to the Servin' Saver line of Rubbermaid, and don't mind still using them, I'm sure you can find them on eBay. I have a lot of them and still use mine.

    1. Rubbermaid's site might indicate a container that suits you (none of their current production has BPA):

      Myself, I don't think much about BPA for storage, but I make sure we reheat everything in Pyrex or Corelle (transferring contents, so that doesn't fit your hopes).

      Cooks Illustrated recommends Snapware Airtight brand;

        I just re-did all my pantry staples, and got some good ideas from fellow CHs. Bought a few of the Snapware containers, and I like them.
