Some of our favorite food storage containers are plastic. But we get that not everyone is a fan. Maybe you hate that you can never find the right lid when it comes down to it? Or how plastic containers get discolored or smelly when you leave leftovers in them a little too long? Or maybe you’re just tired of all the plastic that exists in the world? We get it! And we love glass storage containers, too!

Here are our five favorite glass storage containers for the fridge, freezer, pantry, and beyond.

1. Pyrex 18-Piece Simply Store Food Storage Set

This 18-piece Pyrex set is the perfect introduction to the magic of glass storage containers. The set comes with both round and rectangular bowls with tight-fitting-yet-flexible plastic lids. The glass bowls are also oven-, microwave-, refrigerator-, and freezer-safe, so you can freeze leftover lasagna right in one and then bake the leftovers in the same dish a month later.

2. Glasslock 18-Piece Container Set

This 18-piece customer set has nearly 3,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Reviewers (and Kitchn editors!) like that the lids truly do lock into place and are somehow entirely leakproof. Plus, the gasket comes out for extra-deep cleanings. While the pieces are also oven-, microwave-, refrigerator-, and freezer-safe, we like them for packing up lunches and freezing soups and stews.

3. OXO Good Grips 8-Piece Smart Seal Leakproof Glass Food Storage Container Set

Here’s another versatile set with a removable silicone seal — this time, from our friends at OXO. Some customers say that the lids are so tight-fitting that they sometimes struggle to break the seal! No spillage here.

4. Prepare Evak Storage Containers

For all of your pantry organizing needs, invest in a few Prepare Evak storage containers. These canisters come in a few different sizes and are perfect for keeping coffee, tea, coffee, snacks, and nuts at peak freshness, no matter how much you have left. How? The lid plunges down to meet the jar’s contents while also forcing any and all air out of the container.

5. 16-Ounce Ball Jars

You can’t go wrong with classic Ball jars. Yes, you can use them for canning and preserving — and beyond that, they’re also great for overnight oats, make-ahead smoothies, salads, soups, stews, or simply as giant drinking glasses.
