If you use old plastic yogurt containers or takeout containers for basic food storage, you have a few reasons to upgrade. First, you can’t see through yogurt containers, so once the lid is on, you can easily forget about what you have in there (and let it rot). Second, they aren’t leakproof, which means that transporting them to work for lunch can be a messy affair. Third, such plastic containers are not FDA-approved for repeat food storage or microwaving. Upgrading to more durable glass or plastic food storage containers means they’ll last longer and keep your food fresher.

We’ve tested dozens of food storage containers over the past three years, subjecting them to freezing, microwaving, and 3-foot drops onto hard floors. The Glasslock containers beat the competition every time. The flaps on the lids were the easiest to close among all of the containers we tried. The Glasslock containers stayed leak-free and survived our counter-height drop tests onto wood without breaking. They were able to keep stains and smells from lingering and looked great filled with leftovers and stacked in the fridge. The containers even nest with their lids on, so they take up less space in a cupboard than much of the competition.

For our 2016 update, our tests included filling the containers with water and shaking them, both before and after they had run through the dishwasher. To test how the containers would react to smells and stains, we filled them with tomato sauce, placed them in the freezer for three days, and reheated the sauce in the microwave for two minutes. We also froze quarter-pound portions of ground beef for two weeks to look at freezer-burn patterns. And, most fun of all, we conducted a drop test from waist height for all the picks (including our glass containers) to see if they would break or if the lids would pop off. We did our drop test on a piece of wood placed over cement in an attempt to simulate a non-bouncy kitchen floor. In our initial tests, we also tracked how long food stayed fresh in the containers by refrigerating fresh, cut strawberries for about two weeks.

The Snapware glass containers don’t have the ability to nest with their lids on, but they stack well and the lids fit together nicely. Their locking flaps open and close easily and feel secure when shut. Some of the lids in this set are even interchangeable with the plastic Snapware set we also recommend in this guide. (The orange lids for the round containers and the aqua lids for the rectangle containers work for both sets.) The containers tested well across the board, and because they’re Pyrex, the bottoms are oven-safe. We were amazed that the glass container didn’t break after we dropped it at different angles four times. Snapware came in second after Glasslock in our drop tests this year: The lid cracked slightly on the corner only after the fourth drop from waist height.

All of the plastic food containers that we examined in our kitchen were branded with the number 5, which means they’re made of PP, or polypropylene. That’s a cloudy plastic generally considered to be food safe. If you’re curious about the other numbers, which range from 1 to 7, Tupperware has a handy chart.

Recycling Symbols Credit: Wikimedia Commons, “Tomia” Recycling Symbol Most folks are familiar with the triangular recycling symbol, but did you know that the number in the center of the triangle provides information about the specific type of plastic your container is made of? There are other factors that go into making a container safe for various uses, but this number is a good starting point if you’re nervous about certain types of plastic.

The Reditainer Deli Food Storage Containers are typically used in professional restaurant kitchens because they’re cheap to buy in bulk, uniform, and store very neatly. While these containers didn’t leak and kept freezer burn at bay, but they stained easily and hung onto food odors. These containers also shattered in our drop test.

November 24, 2015: In light of a huge European Food Safety Authority assessment of BPA that came out this year, we believe that plastic is safe for food container use and have updated our guide to reflect that. We plan to revisit testing plastic food-storage containers next year. Glasslock containers, which have a durable seal and stack neatly in the fridge, are our new top pick. If the Glasslock pieces are unavailable, we recommend a set of Snapware Total Solution glass containers, which are also nestable and affordable but paired with flimsy lids that are prone to damage. If you prefer plastic, we recommend the Snapware 18-Piece Airtight Box Set, which acquires smells more easily than glass but can be more convenient to use.

The Glasslock set comes with square, rectangular and round containers ranging from 0.73 cup (173 ml) to 6.3 cups (1.5 L) in size. The walls are thick but perfectly see-through, and same-shape containers nest even with the lids on. Like Pyrex and Anchor Hocking, Glasslock makes its containers of tempered soda-lime glass that are oven-safe up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Originally, we tested the straight-sided Glasslock containers, but we have been using the slope-sided versions the past two and half years and like them better. The empty containers nest with the lids on, so they’re great for storing in a small kitchen and for keeping the containers tidy. They all still work as well as they did when we first got them. Negative reviews regarding chipping and breakage seem to have tapered off over the past few years, so at this point we feel comfortable recommending the nesting, oven-safe version.

While we like the Glasslock containers best, if their price goes up, or if you have a Costco membership, a set of Snapware Total Solution Pyrex Glass containers is the way to go. Unlike the Glasslock lids, these lids don’t have a removable gasket. Instead, the grooves around the lip of the containers are lined with a sort of firm silicone sealant where moisture can collect and grow mold. If you get grease in the groove, it can be a little difficult to clean if you’re washing by hand. However, this set has the best price of the glass options: When purchased from Costco, these are about 25 percent cheaper than the Glasslock pieces.
