Due to the amount of potentially harmful chemicals found in most plastic containers, I highly recommend using glass storage containers for your food. If you want to fully understand why I recommend this, check out my article on the dangers of bisphenol A.
The common issue with cheaper, inferior glass products is the glass can crack and shatter if temperatures change too quickly.
Well, Pyrex makes the highest quality glass containers that I know of. Their products are known for being extremely shatter resistant, and the lids fit snugly and don’t shrink or warp when washed.
They’re cheap as well. I highly recommend you pick up a set and avoid the potential health risks of using plastic storage containers for your food.
The exact Pyrex set above isn’t available on Amazon.co.uk, but the Pyrex, Set of 3 is. Same product, different look.
