With the new year quickly approaching, you may have some food-related goals like cooking more often than eating out or preparing healthy meals during the work week. We know meal prepping can be tough, especially with all the time and effort it takes to put together, package, and store everything. Not to mention, the cleanup afterwards is arguably the worst part. Luckily, Costco has a new item that will make meal prepping just a little bit easier. Hey, anything helps!

TikTok user @costcoguide spotted a 10-piece glass meal prep set by ello that is just as adorable as it is functional. Even better, it’s retailing at the warehouse for only $19.99. The set comes with five glass food storage containers, five leak-proof and airtight lids that will keep your food fresh, and five silicone protection bases that shield the glass from any cracks or chips. All the dishes are BPA-free, plus microwave-, dishwasher-, and oven-safe (as long as you remove the lid). You can also throw these in the refrigerator or freezer.

“Quality made and the lids snap on securely, but not too hard which I have experienced with other containers with the same design,” wrote one reviewer. “LOVE the silicone base. Makes placing in the fridge nice and quiet, no sliding around. Great buy!”

Another said, “I really like these containers. They are a little heavy but stack well and lids are easy to use. Really like the idea of using glass in the microwave instead of plastic!”

They’re also available to buy online at a slightly higher price of $28.99, or you can shop the same set on Amazon for $38.49. While the prices are higher, if you want to take advantage of Ello’s functional meal prep kit but don’t have a Costco membership, you’ve still got options! And if you happen to be a Sam’s Club member, the bulk retailer is selling a 90-piece meal prep set for under $25. However, 90 pieces can be a bit overwhelming for those of you just getting your feet wet in the meal prepping pool. This Ello buy is the perfect set to get you started.
