Looking to switch from plastic to glass food storage containers to avoid. Are all the brands the same?? Is there a safer brand or all they all pretty safe as far as chemicals and toxins?

The best is Bormioli Rocco. I think they have the least mercury and cadmium, but Im not certain. They are available in local stores.

Is it bad to put steaming hot food like meat and veggies in a plastic container or ziplock bag right away? Does it partially melt the plastic or anything? Sometimes I'm in a hurry and have to do this...

anyone have recommendations for lunch containers, they will be heated in the microwave so they can't be plastic. i guess there's no such thing as stackable glass containers right? :(
