These glass containers, jars, and storage bags make eating healthy so much easier.

How to choose the best food storage containers

Decided to give meal prep a try in 2020? Great! You’ve probably read up on how to meal prep, picked out your meals, and stocked up on the actual ingredients. But there’s an important element that can make or break your meal prepping plans: the container. It may seem trivial, but having the right storage method is the key to perfectly portioning out your meals and keeping them fresh for days.

Choosing your containers can be overwhelming, since there’s endless options out there. Plus, the wrong type of container can leak, be difficult to wash, or may even contain harmful materials. But have no fear! Once you know what to look for, you’ll discover that there are tons of meal prep containers that fit the bill. It’s as simple as adding them to your cart, and you’ll be on your way to healthy eating in no time.

How to choose the best meal prep container

Think about material: Meal prep containers are made from a variety of materials including glass, silicone, metal, bamboo, or plastic. Some plastic may contain BPA, a harmful industrial chemical. “Avoid using plastic containers that contain the recycle codes 3 or 7, which indicate the items may contain BPA,” says Toby Amidor, R.D., C.D.N., author of The Best Rotisserie Chicken Cookbook.

That said, there are plenty of BPA-free plastic containers that are perfectly safe to use. While glass is always free of BPA, Amidor notes it can also get heavy. “I have a combination of glass, plastic, and metal and make sure that I have containers that are oven-proof, microwave safe, and freezer friendly,” she says.

Make sure they are leak-proof: There is really nothing worse than taking the time to prep your lunch, only to find it spilled all over your bag by the time you get to work. “I look for containers that have a lid with a silicone seal that snaps onto the base for extra tightness,” says Casey Seiden, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., author of Meal Prep for Two. Amidor also recommends reading online reviews before purchasing to see what others have said about the leakability of the container.

Aim for versatility: Having a bunch of different-sized containers makes it easy to store large and small batches without eating up extra space in your fridge. Seiden recommends buying meal- and snack-size containers, so you can easily portion out your food ahead of time. Also, if you like variety in your meal, Amidor suggests buying a combination of multiple compartment and single compartment containers.

Before you buy, think about how you’ll store the containers in your home. If you live in a tiny apartment, a 30-piece set of glass containers may not be ideal. “I like to make the most out of my freezer and refrigerator by purchasing meal prep containers that easily stack over one another, and I also like nestable containers that take up less space in my cabinet,” says Amidor.

Now that you’ve got the tips to pick out the best meal prep containers, here are some of our favorite picks that fit the bill:

Whether you’re cutting back on plastic for health reasons or for the environment (or both), here are some of our editors’ favorite reusable glass, stainless-steel and silicone storage containers.

By now, most of us are aware of the environmental issues that single-use plastic can cause. We’ve all seen images of beaches littered with garbage or marine animals entangled in plastic bags. Plus, chemicals found in plastics can be bad for your health. The plastic problem can feel overwhelming, but making small changes at home-such as cutting out plastic bags, bottles and containers-can make a big difference. We’ve rounded up our favorite food-storage containers made out of glass, stainless steel, silicone and even beeswax.

Everyone’s favorite Swedish home-goods store has launched a new line of glass food-storage containers. They are functional, beautiful and affordable. And because they’re made from oven-safe glass, they are easy to clean and won’t stain or take on odors. These containers are a meal-prepper’s dream and can go from the fridge to the oven to the table, saving you on extra dishes. Or use them to organize your pantry. The clear glass allows you to easily see what’s inside, and you can stack them to save on storage space.

Mix and match lids are sold separately, so you can choose the one that suits your needs. We love the beautiful bamboo lids that double as a trivet (available in stores only, for now). Locking lids and oven-safe silicone lids are also available.

Perfect whether you’re storing dry food or freezing meals long-term.

How to choose the best food storage containers

It’s easy to have a love/hate relationship with food storage containers. They can feel cheap and flimsy, the lids are often impossible to find, and the sets can feel like they take up a whole cabinet. But a good food storage container makes all the difference: You can neatly refrigerate meal prepped servings, take healthy lunch leftovers to work, reheat, and even serve food out of some. A good storage container should have an airtight seal, and even better if it’s leakproof for food like soup. We like ones that can be stored easily and stack on top of each other with little risk of slipping.

In the Good Housekeeping Institute, we test food storage containers for air-tightness, leak-proof ability, and staining. We also test how they hold up in the freezer, microwave, and dishwasher if they’re designed to do so. While all of the containers below have not been tested in our Lab, we’ve used them all and they’ve stood up to the even bigger test of time and real-life use. Our favorite picks, below, include an array of plastic, glass, and silicone bags intended to replace disposable baggies.

Before you start scrolling, here are some details to consider when shopping for food storage containers:

  • Material: Glass and plastic are two of the most common food storage options. Glass tends to have more uses and can often be used in the oven, while plastic cannot. The trade-off is that glass is heavier and can break, which doesn’t make it the best for taking on the go. Though most plastic is now BPA-free and perfectly safe, some consumers still believe glass to be the “safer” option to avoid any possibility of chemical leaching.
  • Shape: Most food storage containers are round or rectangular. Round are more ideal for salads and liquids while rectangular ones are great for meats and sides, plus the straight edges stack neatly without wasting space. Round or rectangular, we love containers with straight edges versus flared to avoid hogging up extra, unnecessary room in your fridge and cabinets.
  • Lids: A lid that doesn’t seal is a dealbreaker. Some simply press down to close while others have clasps on the sides. We tend to prefer lids without clasps because they’re thinner and store easier, but it’s worth noting that the clasps offer an extra source of leak-protection.

Utilize every inch of cabinetry space with these genius food storage container hacks that will keep your supplies organized and easy to access. You’ll learn how to organize your kitchen cabinets quickly and inexpensively.

Food storage containers are a necessary component to our kitchens, but the clutter they cause can be a nuisance. Without a proper storage plan, you can end up with missing lids and mismatched containers toppling from your cabinets. We rounded up our favorite kitchen storage hacks to solve your food storage container woes. Check out the easy and inexpensive solutions below.

Rescue a Cabinet Corner Shelf

Unfortunately for food storage containers, it’s inconvenient to store each bowl or dish with its matching lid. This can lead to a drawer full of mixed-up lids near impossible to keep straight. To help, sort your lids by size or container type, and arrange them on a three-tier shelf as you see fit. Print labels to make sure nobody in the house gets mixed up. Label by size, type, color—whatever works best for your household.

Manage Water Bottles

Find a place for a magazine holder in your cabinet and flip it on its side. From there, it’s easy to stack water bottles on top of each other and to keep them from toppling or taking up unnecessary space. Keep your water bottles within reach and in plain sight, plus have fun decorating your magazine holder or purchase one with a pattern you love. Any time you can stack your food storage containers is a good opportunity to save some shelf space.

Undershelf Space-Saver

Large food storage containers take up a lot of room, so gain additional storage space by sliding an undershelf basket into place in your cabinet. Fill it with sorted food storage container lids, then place the containers underneath their corresponding lids. It’s a quick, easy, and affordable way to make the most of a limited amount of space.

Sliding Storage Trays

Tired of blindly fumbling around in a dark cabinet for food storage containers and lids? Create your own makeshift pullout cabinets by placing lightweight acrylic trays on each of your cabinet shelves. To make sliding your trays out a little easier, cover the bottom of your cabinet shelf with an adhesive liner. Organize your food storage containers as you see fit, and say good-bye to the dread of digging through your cabinets when the container you need goes missing.

Book Bins

Keep cabinets from getting chaotic and avoid mismatched items with this easy kitchen drawer organizer hack. In a lower drawer or pullout shelf, flip book bins on their sides and use them to turn your single storage area into several separate sections. Stack corresponding food storage containers and lids, and store them together in their own ready-made compartments.

Mounted Lid Collector

A wall-mount file holder can be convenient outside of the office when you use it for small kitchen organization. Hang one inside a cabinet door and fill it with miscellaneous food storage container lids that are normally hard to find. This will guarantee a lid is always within reach and that your small lids never disappear into the depths of an unorganized cabinet.

Tension Rod Compartments

Use two tension rods to create compartments in a small drawer for easy kitchen cupboard organizers. Place the tension rods near the top of the drawer, two or three inches apart, to create three compartments: one large, one medium, and one small. Keep your food storage containers in the large compartment, water bottles lined up in the medium compartment, and lids in the small compartment in an upright position to maximize storage.

Box Shelf Storage

To make instant drawer compartments and create a space for your lids without toppling, invest in a few decorative box shelves. Get a few that vary in size, drop them directly into a drawer, and keep containers and lids easily grouped in size-appropriate compartments. This method will keep your food containers sorted and will prevent stacks of lids from sliding around the drawer.

Incorporate Clear Containers

Declutter your cabinets with a few clear containers—or frosted, if you want to keep things out of sight. Sort by size and type, and keep lids near their corresponding food storage containers. Magazine holders come in handy again here, this time lying flat and storing lids while acting as a shelf for their matching food storage containers. Kitchen organization hacks like this are easily customizable and inexpensive.

Desktop Mail Sorter Magic

Place a desktop mail sorter in a pullout drawer to maximize space with its small, slender compartments. Use the sorter for food storage container lids, and stack the containers by size toward the front of the cabinet. When you’re planning how to organize your kitchen, don’t be afraid to take cues from other rooms in your home.

An unmade bed doesn’t mean the sheets aren’t fresh and clean and—hey, wait a minute—it’s my bed!

Maybe you don’t know where your keys are but your shoes are arranged by style, brand, color, and height.

Stacks of (sorted) mail. Piles of (folded) laundry. Unemptied dishwasher full of (clean) dishes.

Are label makers still a thing? You bet. You own one. And have a backup. It’s labeled \”LABEL MAKER BACKUP.\”

Perfect whether you’re storing dry food or freezing meals long-term.

Tackling one of your kitchen’s toughest organizing challenges is simple once you’re armed with advice from the professionals.

Your support-local-restaurants takeout habit, your well-intentioned New Year’s resolution to pack your lunch, and your recently-discovered love for cooking at home can all lead to an influx of small food storage containers in your kitchen. This, in turn, leads to the nearly impossible task of keeping all those containers organized. “This is really a universal challenge,” says Lisa Zaslow of Gotham Organizers. “The pace of change for these containers is practically daily, and if you don’t put things back in the exact right spot, things get chaotic.” Keep everything from your smallest dressing container to your largest tub for leftovers organized in just four easy steps.

See what you have.

Before investing in new containers or even deciding where to keep the ones you already have, collect every piece you can find—those in your cabinets, on the lunchbox shelf, storing last night’s pasta in the refrigerator, in the dishwasher—and analyze your lot. “Food storage containers seem to multiply like fruit flies,” Zaslow says. “They sneak into our homes when we order takeout and when we take home leftovers, and lids and bottoms seem to get tossed at different rates.” Pair as many containers with their lids as you can, and then weed out the extras. “When organizing anything, the first step is to clear out clutter!” says Zaslow. “Get rid of any unmatched pieces, any that are past their prime, and any you don’t like.” This includes saying a guilt-free goodbye to extra takeout containers you know you won’t use. “Those are made to be temporary,” says Zaslow. “It doesn’t have as good of a seal as something you would buy. You probably already have something better, so let it go.”

Decide what you need.

The next step is to figure out exactly how many containers you need, as well as what purposes you need them to serve: Do you have leftovers to pack up after dinner every night? How many people in your family use food storage containers at lunch? Do you need glass containers for reheating extra food, or lightweight, easily-replaceable plastic for the kids’ lunches (or both)? “The quantity can make it difficult to keep them organized,” says Neitra Rose of Organizing Lifestyles. “A household only needs one, maybe two sets of leftover containers, depending on the size of the family.” Zaslow recommends a simple trick for figuring out how many containers you use regularly: Put a small piece of masking tape on the bottom of each container, and take the tape off as you use each piece. “After a couple of weeks,” she says, “anything that still has tape on it can probably be let go.”

Complete your collection.

You may have so many containers and lids already that you don’t need to buy any new pieces, but for many of the organizers’ clients, investing in a complete set—designed to save space—pays off in the long run. “The fewer different types and sizes of container you have, the easier it is to organize them and the less space they take up,” says Zaslow. Sets that stack or nest, collections with mix-and-match lids, and store-flat containers all help you maximize your space. “For your lunch containers, get a different color for each family member,” says Rose. “Everyone knows which set is theirs, and if something comes up missing or accidentally left somewhere, then you will be able to identify what needs to be replaced.”

Create a system.

Designing an organizing system for your food storage containers starts with designating specific spots for each category. “When everyone in the house is putting things in different places, it is an indication that there isn’t a specific home for something,” says Rose. “Does everyone go to the same place to get a box of cereal, and, when they finish with cereal, do they place it back where it belongs? [The] same concept should apply to your storage containers.” If you plan to use pieces interchangeably for on-the-go snacks or lunches and at-home food storage, keep them all in the same drawer or cabinet; if you’ve specified containers for different activities, store them separately (for example: lunch containers with lunchboxes, glass storage pieces in the cabinet by the refrigerator). “Depending on the space you have available, it’s usually easier to keep [lids and bottoms] together so you don’t have to match them up when you go to use them,” says Zaslow. “Arrange containers to fit your space, putting in the largest ones first, and fitting the smaller ones around them. Nest and stack related containers as much as possible.” Small cabinet shelves maximize vertical space, while baskets that corral containers and lids in your cabinets are especially easy for kids to navigate.

And if the organizing breakdown in your home comes from family members who can’t be bothered to stack the pieces neatly when they unload the dishwasher, Zaslow has a trick for that, too: “Some people need to see a demo to realize how easy and quick it is to put things away in an organized manner,” she says. “I’ve used the timer on my phone to show clients that it really doesn’t take much time! And if you can get them to think about the time and stress it causes when you have to get a container and it’s hard to find, that can help motivate them to change their habits.”

Will you keep the food within the container itself or will you choose to put it outside the container with the main food?

The sight of well-organized plastic storage containers can be inspiring for those of us who have piles of stuff without a place to put it. Plastic storage containers do a great job of helping to organize seasonal, bulky, and many other types of items in our homes. But to make sure the containers work well for you, there are some things to consider first. Here’s what you need to think about before you buy plastic storage containers.

What Needs to Be Stored?

To determine the right type of plastic storage container for you, consider everything you want to fit in the container. So gather it up. Stack your items in one spot to help determine exactly what your storage space needs are. You might be surprised to find that you have a lot more to pack away than you thought. Measure your stack, so you know the dimensions to look for in a container. This is also a good time to sort through and pull out items that can be thrown away, given away, or returned to people they were borrowed from. Plan to store only the items you truly want to keep.

Do You Want a Colored or Clear Bin?

Many people like to pick a different color depending on what they are storing. For example, seasonal clothing goes in a blue container, Christmas decorations in a red one, sports equipment in a green one, etc. Others opt for only clear plastic storage containers. One of the benefits of choosing a clear container is it’s easy to see whether an item is actually in the bin without emptying it. Selecting only clear containers can also make your storage appear more uniform, as extra clear containers are typically easier to find than specific colors.

What’s the Fill Weight?

It’s easy to forget how quickly an empty plastic storage container can become heavy once you add all of your stuff to it. To keep your storage container mobile, opt for the biggest bin that will still allow you to move the filled container with ease. Consider what will be packed in the storage container. For instance, if you’re storing books, choose small containers. If you’re storing pillows, you can use large containers and still have them remain light.

Where Will the Container Go?

Don’t forget that the plastic storage container itself will have to fit in a designated spot in your home. It won’t do you any good to have the perfect container for your items only to realize it doesn’t fit in your storage space. So when you measure the items you need to store, also measure your desired storage space. Make sure you find a container that suits both measurements. Also, consider the weight of the container once it’s full if you plan to keep it on shelving or another spot with a weight limit.

Does the Container Have Handles?

Handles might seem like the least of your concerns when you are considering a storage container to fit your items, but they can make a big difference when you want to move things around. Find a container with sturdy handles that won’t break or crack. And avoid any containers that have handles that are built into the lid instead of the actual container. If you’re carrying a container just by its lid, the container can easily detach and drop depending on its weight.

Is There a Secure Lid?

When purchasing a storage container, don’t forget to examine the lid. Make sure the lid fits properly and isn’t damaged. If you will be stacking your containers, note whether the lids will support that. Stackable containers often have an extra lip on the lid that corresponds with an opposite lip on the bottom of the container, preventing the stacked bins from slipping off one another. Before settling on containers you plan to stack, stack them with their lids on to make sure they’re sturdy in this format.

We live in a land of infinite choices: cash or credit? Take-out or delivery? And when it comes to food storage containers, glass or plastic? The answer isn’t that simple. Aside from personal preference, the choice depends on environmental and safety concerns, space and weight considerations, and functionality. Below, we’ve laid out the factors to consider when choosing between glass and plastic, and determined a winning material for each category.

FOR THE ENVIRONMENT: GLASS

First up: recycling. With care, glass containers will last almost indefinitely, and if you do discard of them, they’re 100 percent recyclable. An unfortunate amount of plastic, however, can’t be recycled in most municipal recycling programs. (Plastics are labeled with numbered symbols and local programs typically recycle some, but not all, of the labels.) According to a recent study, approximately 6300 metric tons of plastic waste had been generated as of 2015, 9 percent of which had been recycled. The only kind of plastic containers that might be comparable to glass in terms of environmental benefits are ones made of recycled plastic, like these by Preserve.

FOR YOUR HEALTH: GLASS

Even when you choose BPA-free plastic, toxic, endocrine-disrupting chemicals may migrate into your food during microwaving. Glass has a non-porous surface that doesn’t absorb like plastic and can be safely washed at higher temperatures in your dishwasher without melting or warping—most food storage containers made of glass are designed to withstand high heat without breaking.

FOR BRINGING YOUR LUNCH TO WORK: PLASTIC

Plastic containers are definitely the convenient option for transporting food. They’re much lighter than glass and won’t shatter into a million little pieces if you drop them. Some, like these Glad containers, are designed with a lid for storing tiny containers of dressing or sauce. If you’re looking for another transportable, replaceable, and inexpensive plastic container for carrying your lunch, heed Epi staffer Erika Owen’s advice and use 32-ounce plastic deli containers.

FOR PACKING YOUR KIDS’ LUNCHES: PLASTIC

If you’re sending your children off to school with their lunch, plastic is best for the same reasons above. Anya Hoffman likes this portioned option because it has tiny compartments for different items.

FOR STORING LEFTOVERS IN THE FRIDGE & FREEZER: GLASS

For storing food in the fridge or freezer, glass, particularly OXO’s set wins. The containers are freezer-safe so the glass won’t break, leakproof with a tight seal (no mysterious liquids sticking to your refrigerator shelves!), and easy to clean. Plus, you don’t have to worry about glass releasing chemicals when frozen. Pyrex’s glass bakeware dishes, also freezer-safe, are particularly useful for cooking big batches and storing half in the freezer.

FOR SPACE SAVING: PLASTIC

While you can layer glass containers like a transparent Russian nesting doll, you can’t collapse them like you can with some of the newfangled plastic storage containers. Many of the reviews on Amazon for collapsible containers speak highly of compact food storage for camping, picnics, traveling. When you’re thinking about the haul, plastic is a winner.

FOR AESTHETICS: GLASS

From a personal standpoint, I’d much rather serve a dish from glass containers than from plastic. They’re pretty close to actual dishware and don’t absorb smells or stains—no frightening marinara discoloration after one too many uses. In modern classics or vintage patterns, glass, particularly Pyrex, wins my heart and my open shelving space.
