Best Brand of Glass Food Storage Containers???

by 10 · July 05, 2014 at 7:18 PM

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 old "real" Pyrex ones are great for a wide variety of reasons. Probably the best choice IMO.

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

I'm loving may mason jars with these drinkable/pourable lids http://www.recapmasonjars.com/

I've even been warming things up in them in boiling water or an oven at 200*F. I think the only toxicity issues are with cheap leaded glass, or cheap glass with unknown impurities. Acidic liquids can leach these things from glass. More important are safety issues. If you take your pyrex from the oven with your deliciously steaming holiday dinner bubbling away, and set it on your marble countertop, it will probably shatter explosively. The emotional/physical scars will provide dinnertable conversation for years to come.

Mason jars are great. Cheap and spill-proof.
