Thinking of storage without plastic? Stainless steel is one of the most reliable ways to go! These containers are airtight and made of durable stainless steel that will last you a long time. They are great for carrying food on-the-go or storing it in your pantry or freezer. The base is also oven safe so you can pack your soup in it, remove the lid and heat it up on a stove or in an oven, right in the same container.
This set covers all the bases as it comes with 5 different sizes of small and medium sized containers (container specs in the "sizes" tab).
These containers even come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.
Use and care
Easy to clean, the container base can be washed in the dishwasher. Lids should be washed by hand with warm soapy water. The containers can also be re-heated on the stove. Please note that the lid has a silicone seal, which is not dishwasher-safe or oven-safe. These containers are freezer-safe.
You can use a non-permanent marker/wax pencil to write on the container. This is handy for specifying contents and storage date. The marker writings wash off easily with water and friction.
Please note that nesting the containers inside each other may cause some minor scratching inside the containers as they rub against each other. This is normal and does not in any way decrease the quality, integrity, safety or functionality of the containers.
