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!
