The lids are backed by a lifetime warranty, which is great because they’re just a bit flimsier and more prone to damage than our pick’s lids.

For our 2016 update, we didn’t find any new glass containers that rivaled our top pick, the Glasslock 18-Piece Container Set. If you have a Costco membership, the Snapware Total Solution Pyrex Glass Set is slightly cheaper (and flimsier). For a leakproof plastic set, we now recommend the Snapware Total Solution 18-pc Set. If you need a cheap set that you can leave behind at picnics or parties get the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs 40-Piece Storage Set.

I love these pyrex storage bowls with lids. They are so versatile and durable. And they are much safer for my family than plastic storage containers. I've had a set for a couple of years now and they are still just as good as when I first purchased them. I feel they'll last a long, long time. I ordered a set for both our daughters, our daughter-in-law, and my mother-in-law for Christmas, as we are always sharing meals and “leftovers” with each other. So I've decided to put my initials on the lids of mine with a Sharpie, which stays on after washing them, so we can know which ones belong to whom. The glass is thick enough that it doesn't chip or break easily, because I've never chipped or broken one yet. I use it for microwaving leftovers too, but be careful because the container does get hot! I was happy to find I could order online because my Walmart store doesn't seem to carry them anymore.

The Pyrex Simply Store 6-Piece Rectangular Glass Food Storage Set leaked quite a bit (some customer reviews also report this). During our drop test, both lids loosened multiple times, allowing the contents to spill out. The No-Leak lids, which come with a vent for lid-on microwaving, seemed to warp a bit after the microwave and dishwasher run.

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.

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.

Cook it, store it, reheat it – all in the same Pyrex® glass container. Its four-latch Snapware® plastic lid is airtight, leak proof, and is easy to open and close. And the container stacks with others in the collection for space-saving storage.

Faith Durand, executive editor for The Kitchn, holds her food using glass. She told us, “A few years ago I got rid of my old, mismatched plastic storage ware and switched almost entirely to glass containers. I find that the lids fit better, and I am more comfortable storing food in glass instead of plastic. I also like how easy it is to see what’s inside. So I use glass for nearly everything.”

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.

The Snapware Total Solution Pyrex Glass Set works almost as well as the Glasslock containers, but they’re a little flimsier. These nestable pieces are also oven-, dishwasher-, and microwave-safe, and even cheaper if purchased at Costco. Best of all, Snapware provides a lifetime warranty for the lids, so if you break a lid, all you have to do is call the company’s customer service, and you’ll get a replacement in no time. However, these containers look just a bit tackier than the Glasslock ones, and the crevices in their silicone-bordered lids are a little harder to clean by hand.

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.

The glass Snapware Total Solution containers have a two-year warranty on the Pyrex bottoms and a limited lifetime warranty on the plastic lids. The open-and-shut hinges on the lids are just a seam in a piece of hard plastic, so they tend to break before the containers do. After more than a year of long-term testing, we’ve had only one lid hinge break, but World Kitchen customer service replaced it quickly and without questions. The lids continue to fit well after prolonged dishwashing, but we’ve noticed the silicone gasket has worn down slightly.

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.
