We almost always try to choose function over form. (We don't care how cool a coffee machine looks if it doesn't actually brew coffee to our liking!) If we can get form and function at once? Well, forget it! There are few things better than when that happens!
You may remember that we lost our minds over these oh-so-beautiful kitchen organizers. And a similar thing happened when we saw these leftover containers on Amazon. (We seriously gasped!) While we totally get — and appreciate — an easy, clear container, it'd be nice if, sometimes, we opened the fridge to find something extra pretty.
So here goes: three of the prettiest food storage containers we've ever seen.
1. UNIKON Freezer Containers, $14 for six-piece set
Made of natural wheat straw, these containers can go in the refrigerator and freezer (but not the microwave!). That cute little button on the lid? It pumps air out of the container! The containers are one of Amazon's top picks, they stack, and they come with a bonus container for a reusable straw or a toothbrush, if you're taking a container to work for lunch.
2. Rosti Mepal Cirqula Bowl, $11
This picture seriously doesn't do the Rosti Mepal bowls enough justice. Available in all sorts of sizes and colors (this one holds up to 25 ounces), these bowls are downright gorgeous. Use them in the freezer or fridge, in the microwave (without the lid), and at the table. The lid has a clear window to let you see what's inside, it's leakproof, and it has a little nub that makes it really easy to open without making a mess.
3. EKOBO Biobu 15-Ounce Gusto Storage Jar Set, $30 for three
In sort of an usual shape for food storage containers (they feel more like a Thermos), these containers are actually great for storing soups, salads, leftover side dishes, or even pantry staples. They're made from bamboo fiber and melamine and can go in the dishwasher (top rack). According to reviews, the tightness of the lids vary, so maybe stick with using these at home, versus throwing one in your work bag.
