I have tried out a number of different containers for bringing food in for lunch and breakfast at work – Tupperware, Gladware, Ziploc containers, dollar store containers, Rubbermaid… you name it, I’ve tried it.
I don’t like the taste of food that has been reheated in plastic that’s been washed in the dishwasher. To me it always tastes like soap. It may be in my head, but I can always smell dirty dishes and dishwasher soap when reheating them in the microwave.
A little while ago, like a couple years, I got some Pyrex glass containers. I like using these containers and try not to reheat food with the cover on to spare me from the soap smell and taste.
However, the lids leak and if I bring something liquid, like milk for cereal, it leaks all over my lunch bag and makes a mess!
I’ve been looking for new glass containers that don’t leak and have various lunch sizes available.
That brings me to GlassLock.
I read a recent review on a blog and I was intrigued because I was looking for a different glass container that didn’t leak. So I ordered a set on Amazon.
Let me tell you about these containers; I have some serious love for them.
First, they do not leak. YAY!! Finally! A lunch container that does not leak. They have a rubber ring inside the lid that causes them to be leak proof and air tight. Awesome stuff there. The lids fit really snug too. I like the snap lock feature of them.
Second, they are heavy weight. You’d think that I wouldn’t want to lug in heavy glass containers to work on a daily basis, but I like that they are heavy and glass. Perfect for my issue with dishwasher soap smell and I can remove the lid for reheating. (I don’t think the lid is microwave proof anyway)
And Finally, they are see through (because they’re glass, duh), oven friendly if you like that sort of thing, freezer friendly, and they stack inside each other well for storage.
The set I bought was this one. The containers are a little bigger than I need for lunches, but they are a good size for cooking and leftovers. I will have to find a set that includes some smaller sizes for my lunch and breakfasts.
Have you found lunch bag sized containers that you like more than others? Share them in the comments!
Till next time…
