Pretty scary, isn't it? I have tons of mismatched different plastic containers floating around in this cabinet along with some of my supplies for baking. As some of you may know, I'm not really fond of plastic containers. I keep them only because DH has a habit of forgetting containers at work, and Momma's not happy when her good Pyrex glass containers don't come home at night. (At least when the plastic fall out of the cabinet, they don't break?)
The folks over at Rubbermaid heard about my
Even better with the Easy Find Lids for every day storage? One lid fits multiple sizes, so I don't have to worry about making sure I have the right size lid for the right size container. This rocks when I am packaging up leftovers at 1 AM in the morning after dinner!
And as you will see in my next pictures, all the pieces not only fit inside each other, they easily stack on top of on another in the fridge so they don't fall out!
The new Rubbermaid Produce Saver set is supposed to help extend the life of your produce by allowing air to pass through their Fresh Vents system, as well as having a Crisp Tray to allow moisture to drop down - this is perfect for berries in season!
The Rubbermaid Premier resists stains and odors - this is the set to use to avoid tomato sauce stains! (or for those of you brave souls who eat it - liver and onions?)
The Rubbermaid Lock-It's have tabs on each side to help keep the lid on and avoid leaks. This one is perfect to send stews in!
Each piece in the lines are also microwave safe (this I didn't test, since my regular readers know my microwave is currently gathering dust), as well as dishwasher safe (top rack). They are also meant for freezer use, so these really are perfect for freezing leftovers for work or make ahead meals. If you've ever used a less than tight sealed plastic container for leftovers, you know how quickly freezer burn sets in. These cut down on food waste since they are meant for the freezer and have a better seal.
All in all? If you do plastic containers, the new Rubbermaid containers are your best bang for your buck, as well as best bet for square foot storage in your cabinets. I'm planning to take advantage of the $1.00 off coupon that was in the paper last week to add a few pieces (because I know some of the pieces will wander off with my DH!)
