Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best storage containers for food?

Glass Storage Containers Glass food containers are once again becoming the most preferred kitchen storage containers. The main advantages of using glass food containers are that you can see the contents without opening the lid, and that glass does not react with the contents inside, keeping your food completely fresh and safe. Glass storage containers can be made of either soda lime or borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is the better option as it is both freezer proof and microwave proof. Glass storage containers can be used to deep freeze purees, chutneys, nuts etc in the freezer. They can also be used to store food in your fridge, and they can be put directly into the microwave for reheating without any fear of cracking. It is important to buy airtight containers, so that smells do not go out or in, and also so that the food stays fresh for longer. Borosil’s Klip n Store containers come in different shapes - Round, Square and Rectangle - and each shape comes in multiple sizes. We also sell a fish container so that you can store your fish without smelling up the whole fridge! Stainless Steel Storage Containers Stainless steel kitchen storage containers are what have been used as kitchen storage containers in Indian kitchens for years. The advantages of using stainless steel storage containers are that they do not smell and do not react with food. While they are good for storing large quantities of ration, they are not so good for snack or fridge storage as you cannot see the contents. Most households will have a mix of steel and glass kitchen containers. Plastic Storage Plastic storage should be used as minimally as possible, as research has shown that most plastics leach chemicals in varying degrees under different conditions. Plastics also retain smells and stains, making them an option that should be discarded at the earliest!


What is an airtight container?

An airtight container is one that seals the food container so that once the lid is shut, there is no air from the outside coming in or vice versa. It is important to ensure that kitchen food containers are airtight, because airtight containers keep out odors, air and moisture, and increase the life and freshness of the food stored in them.

What are the best airtight containers?

The best airtight containers for food storage depend on what you want to store in them. For snacks, an airtight jar is a good choice. You can view our range of airtight glass jars with lids to select what best suits your needs.

Are glass containers airtight?

It doesn’t matter what material the container is made of - all containers can be airtight. So yes, glass jars with lids can be airtight, and glass storage containers with a well fitting silicon gasket, can be airtight too

How do you store glass containers and lids?

Wash the lids and containers, and then place them separately to dry. You can store them with the lid on, or with the lid off, as long as it is completely dry (in order to avoid any smells)

Are glass containers better than plastic?

Yes, yes and yes. Glass storage containers do not leach any chemicals into the food, regardless of how long the food is stored or at what temperature. They do not retain any odors or stains. Borosilicate kitchen storage containers are 100% microwavable and freezer proof. In fact, our Cook n Store food storage container set is not only freezer proof, but also flame proof! There is mounting research against plastic being used for food storage. In fact, The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, UK published a paper that recommended pregnant women reduce use of foods/ beverages in cans/plastic containers, including their use for food storage in order to minimise chemical exposure to the fetus/unborn baby
