I spent a lot of time looking for glass food storage containers, and these are perfect! I needed food storage that nested well for storage, something that most glass containers don't do very well. These bowls are tapered enough to allow nesting, while being broad enough at the base to allow for easy mixing or eating. They also stack nicely with the lids on. Additionally, the lids are very tight and don't leak, even when the bowls are turned sideways in a lunch bag.

The Pyrex food storage bowls are glass, so yes they can break. But I’ve bumped mine around a bit (on accident), and I was thrilled to find they didn’t chip or crack or break… yet.

Golly…what would I do without ziploc bags for the freezer? Hmm… more to think about.
