These glass storage containers not only store food safely, they also stack neatly and keep leftovers visible.
Studies have shown that heat sharply increases the amount of toxic BPA leached from plastic — right into your food. Simply put, using plastic containers and bags to store (or reheat) hot leftovers is a very bad idea. Glass storage containers, on the other hand, are a great idea: They protect them from a moldy fate. Plus, they’re perfect for reheating. These attractive, stackable containers from Anchor Hocking come with tight-fitting, BPA-free plastic lids. $10–$30 at Target.
