Glass Storage Containers with Glass Lids That Lock

Glass Storage Containers with Glass Lids That Lock

I have a set of highly recommended food storage containers that do a great job of keeping my food fresh, somewhat leak-proof and are great for keeping left overs for lunch the next day.  BUT, the problems with these plastic containers are starting to mount.  They warp, stain easily and the lids don’t lock.  I have since transitioned to a set of glass storage containers with glass lids that lock and I have never been happier.

There is just something about using a glass container instead of a plastic one that invokes a sense of quality.  Not only is it better for my health, but being able to heat them up in an oven vs. a microwave is a huge plus.  Personally as a Cancer survivor, I am still not 100% sure some leaching does not occur with plastic containers in a microwave (why take the chance).  Glass does not warp or stain like plastic does.  Glass containers are much better than plastic.

The following items are the best of the best when it comes to glass storage containers with lids that lock.  We own one of these sets and are quite happy with it.

 

Glasslock 18-Piece Assorted Oven Safe Container Set **

We hit the ground running with this amazing 18 piece oven safe glass food container set, with locking lids!  Currently rated with 4.5 stars and over 1,240 reviews, this set is our top pick.

This set is produced by Glasslock, a company focused on producing high caliber glass food storage containers.  These containers contain no BPA and are non-toxic.  They are very versatile and can be used in the oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher. They come with a lid that snaps tightly which provides a leak-proof and air tight seal.

Pros:

  • BPA free
  • FDA approved
  • 18 Piece Set (9 containers, 9 lids)
  • Oven, Microwave, Freezer and Dishwasher safe
  • Locking lids provide an airtight and leak-proof seal

Cons:

  • Made in South Korea
  • Some reports of the glass chipping or slivering

 

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid Glass Food Container Set

We have reviewed other Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid glass food containers on this site and we are always walking away more impressed than the last time.  What really sets these glass food containers apart is the Easy Find Lid system.  Organizing and storing glass food containers is not supposed to be this easy!  Never have we come across a lid system that was so easy to attach, remove and still was 100% leak proof.  In the same light, the lids snap to other lids and they also attach to the glass container bases.  Storage for food glass containers has never been easier!

Like all other Rubbermaid products, these are BPA safe.  They can also be safely used int he oven (up to 425 degrees), microwave, dishwasher and freezer.   This would have been our top pick if we had not already picked a similar set in another review.  A great all round glass storage container with lids that lock!

Pros:

  • BPA free
  • Freezer, Oven, Microwave and Dishwasher safe
  • Easy Find Lid system
  • Made in the USA
  • 22 piece set (11 containers, 11 lids)

Cons:

  • Reports of gaskets in the lids coming off, but due to poor maintenance
  • Moving between extreme cold (fridge) to heat (micrwave) can cause the glass to crack

 

SnapwareTempered Glasslock Storage Containers with Snaplock Lids

This is the first of two different Snapware glass storage containers we are reviewing.  This is a 20 piece set (10 containers, 10 lids) that come with the Snaplock Lid system.  The lids do snap down firmly and prevent leaks and is 100% air tight.  The lid contains four latches, made of polypropylene.

The biggest advantage this set has is the fact that the glass is tempered which makes them shatter resistant.  These are save to use in the microwave, oven or freezer.  They are easy to clean and are also dishwasher safe.  These glass storage containers excel when used for baking, serving, storing or reheating last night’s dinner.  In the oven, these can only go to 450 degrees.

Pros:

  • 20 Piece Set
  • BPA Free
  • Oven, Microwave, Freezer and Dishwasher safe
  • Made with tempered glass
  • Shatter proof
  • Easy to stack and store

Cons:

  • Lids can be difficult to snap down

 

Snapware Total Solution Square Food Glass Storage Set

Our second Snapware glass storage container that made it on our list is only a 6 piece (3 containers and 3 lids) but comes with very high rating and reviews.  Currently holding a 4.6 star review on Amazon. Unlike the set we reviewed above, these are not made of tempered glass, nor are they listed as shatter proof.

These containers are square and come with the same 4 latch lid snap system as the set we reviewed above.  This set is also BPA free and can be safely used in the microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher (top rack only).

While the lids do snap down firmly and provide an airtight seal, they can be difficult to snap down.  This has been the biggest complaint of these sets.  But if you can look past this quirk, these are a fantastic set to add to your kitchen ware.

Pros:

  • 6 Piece Set
  • Made in the USA
  • Lifetime warranty
  • BPA Free
  • Oven, Microwave, Freezer and Dishwasher safe

Cons:

  • Lids should not be microwaved, as they can warp
  • Lids need to be dried completely or else mold can start growing on them

 

VonShef Glass Container Food Storage Set

This 24 piece glass food set is currently garnering a 5 star rating.  This set is produced by VonShef, a company that also sells small kitchen appliances, banking & cookware, utensils, gadgets and a bunch of other cool kitchen stuff.  You can also see another version of this set in our feature image at the top of this post.

The lids snap down to form an airtight barrier.  They are also easily stackable.

These containers are oven safe up to 600 degrees, the highest on our list.  It goes without saying that they are also microwave oven and dishwasher safe.  The lids are constructed with BPA free materials and the containers are made out of borosilicate glass.  This is a unique type of glass that is highly resistant to thermal shock.

Pros:

  • 24 piece set (12 containers, 12 lids)
  • BPA free
  • Borosilicate glass
  • Highest rated on our list
  • Dishwasher, Freezer, Oven and Microwave safe.

Cons:

  • Made in China
  • Small containers. May be a bit too small to use as a lunch container

 

There are a few drawbacks to owning glass storage containers with glass lids that lock.  They tend to be a bit heavier than their plastic cousins, which makes packing them in your lunch bag a little less desirable.  Also, glass does not stack as well as plastic does, most of the time.  Some of the products we reviewed on this page are designed to stack (Rubbermaid) but plastic will always win that war.  Overall the short comings of owning glass food containers do not out way the benefits.

One Response to "Glass Storage Containers with Glass Lids That Lock"

  1. Not interested in anything made in China, or made from materials made in China. Also, only interested in borosilicate glass. Manufacturers need to wake up.
