A Kitchen Essential - Pyrex Glass Storage Containers with Lids

I’ve had my eye on the Pyrex glass storage containers with lids for a while and finally made the investment. I’m so glad I finally did! They are one of those kitchen essentials that I use absolutely every day. First of all, they are dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, and microwave safe. Most of the containers nest to store. When you fill the containers and snap on the lids, they stack in the refrigerator or freezer. This is a huge space saver for our family and a big improvement over my bowls and casserole dishes that can’t be stacked because they can only be covered with their bulky glass lids that have a big knob on top or wasteful plastic wrap.

The Pyrex storage containers are completely reusable and no plastic wrap is needed to cover leftovers, another savings for our family and step toward greener living. The variety of convenient, compact sizes they are available in is perfect for storing everything from baby purees for our son, leftovers from dinner, and on the go food like my husband’s lunch for work. Perhaps my favorite feature of these storage containers and one that makes them so usable is that they are clear. I can always see what’s in them, so no more scary mystery containers lucking in the back of our refrigerator; and for me that’s priceless!

Amazon sells a couple of different sets at great prices, which appear to be quite popular as they occasionally go out of stock (Look for sold by on the right):
